While vacationing with family and friends is always fun, sometimes what you really need is a solo retreat. Traveling by yourself can be a powerful way to relax, recharge, and gain a new perspective. If you're thinking of getting away from it all for a weekend or longer, there's no better destination than Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.

At Parkside Cabin Rentals, we have comfortable one bedroom log cabins for rent in the Smoky Mountains that are ideal for a solo getaway. The following are some of the main benefits of taking some time for yourself in the Smokies:

1. Enjoy a Relaxing Retreat

A retreat in the mountains can be great for reflecting, meditating, or just getting some overdue relaxation. The Smokies provide magnificent scenery that will help you leave your everyday annoyances and problems behind. The fresh mountain air and the magnificent view from the deck inspires guests to see everything in a new light.

Virtually all of our one bedroom cabins come equipped with bubbly hot tubs where you can experience the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. Whether you're enjoying the amenities of your cabin or taking a walk in the woods, a cabin in the Smoky Mountains is the perfect place to relax.

While some people rent our cabins to take a break from work, others are seeking a quiet place to focus. You may need to catch up on a few things in an environment without the many distractions of everyday life.

One of the best things about taking a solo vacation is that you get to create your own schedule. You don't have to consult with anyone or compromise about what you're going to do. Wake up and go to bed whenever you feel like it. Create plans, and if the mood strikes you, change them at a moment's notice without the fear of letting anyone down. Taking a trip by yourself provides you with unlimited freedom and flexibility.
