Are you planning a trip to Gatlinburg with a large group? Parkside Cabin Rentals offers a variety of fantastic large cabins in Gatlinburg, including cabins with 6 to 7 bedrooms. These larger cabins can accommodate up to 34 guests, making it the perfect getaway for your next family reunion, church retreat, or other group getaway. We know group vacations can be stressful, which is why we've made a list of some helpful tips to make it easier. Here are 6 great tips for vacationing at a large group cabin in Gatlinburg :

1. Allocate Rooms Before the Trip

Our large group cabins have plenty of room for everyone to spread out, and each bedroom offers plenty of privacy. The descriptions of our 6 and 7 bedroom cabins are provided in detail so that you can decide as a group where everyone will sleep. For example, bunk beds might be better for the younger kids in your group, and the adults get the master bedrooms. By allocating the rooms before your trip, you can avoid any potential problems that could come from choosing rooms at the last minute.

2. Plan to Cook Meals in the Kitchen


Each large cabin at Parkside Cabin Rentals features a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and all of the comforts of home. Take advantage of your cabin’s spacious kitchen and cook meals in your cabin rather than dining out on each day of your vacation. You might arrange that each couple or party within your group take turns planning and cooking dinner on one night during your vacation. Eating as a group is not only more fun, it is much more affordable than eating out at restaurants!

3. Schedule Daily Activities in Advance

Whether it’s a scenic hike through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or a roller coaster marathon at Dollywood, plan your daily activities before your trip and send a written itinerary to the group. When there are a large number of people on vacation together, it can be difficult to coordinate activities. By planning your schedule in advance, everyone will know exactly what to expect each day of your vacation.

4. Have a Game Night

Many of our large cabins in Gatlinburg come with awesome game rooms featuring classic activities like billiards and ping pong. Challenge another couple to a game of pool, or get the entire cabin involved in some tournament action! As an alternative, enjoy a board game or a night of cards in front of the fireplace to wind down after another great day in the Smokies.

5. Take Turns in the Hot Tub

Ready to relax? There is a hot tub at each of our large group cabins! Take turns relaxing in the hot tub as you socialize with your friends and appreciate the time together in such a wonderful atmosphere. Whether choosing to start your morning off with a soak in the hot tub or to sit under the stars at night, the hot tub is sure to be one of the most popular amenities at your group cabin!

6. Bring Your Camera
