August 12, 2015

Planning a trip to the Smoky Mountains? Be sure to check out our list of the top 4 do’s and don’ts of what to do when renting Smoky Mountains log cabin rentals to make sure your trip is one to remember for years to come!

1. Don’t Overpack

The biggest mistake you can make when preparing for a trip to Smoky Mountains log cabin rentals is overpacking. Yes, it is hard to narrow down all of the amazing items in your closet into just a couple of days away. However, trust us when we say that creates more of a hassle than it is worth.

Not only does it take a ton of time for you to sort through all of your clothes to pack for your trip, but you also have to think of the effort it will then take to unpack them when you arrive in your cabin and when you return home. That is a lot of work when in reality you will only wear a small handful of the pieces you pack.

Also, keep in mind, you will have access to a washer and dryer when you stay in your cabin. This means you can easily wash any clothes you want to wear again during your trip instead of packing extra clothes.

2. Don’t Skip Looking For Specials
