Far enough in the country to feel like your personal and private getaway, yet close enough to reach all the places you want to go quickly, Wears Valley is the premiere location in Sevier County to get away from it all without having to rough it! Wears Valley Road is the main thoroughfare through the area, which connects you to beautiful surroundings with a variety of lodging choices. Yet the area is far from remote, with only a short drive's distance to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Townsend, and Sevierville. The Knoxville McGhee Tyson Airport is also accessible from here without enduring major tourist traffic headaches.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has an entrance in Wears Valley, with several don't miss spots to visit in this area of the park: Metcalf Bottoms riverside picnic area (wade and swim in the icy mountain water), Little Greenbriar Schoolhouse Trail and the Walker Sisters cabin (explore mountain history). Cades Cove is also a short drive away, a fantastic 11-mile paved loop with multiple hiking trails, historic structures, and native wildlife viewing and biking opportunities.
Seeking adventure instead? There are plenty of outdoor activities like four wheeling, ziplining, river rafting, and mountain coaster companies available in the valley. The attractions of Pigeon Forge and the Island Entertainment Complex are a straight shot down Wears Valley Road, which turns into Teaster Lane when you reach Pigeon Forge. There are multiple restaurants and a movie theater at Waldens Landing which can be reached without even getting on the main Parkway. Now that you know that Wears Valley is the place to be, here are two quality firms who can assist you in finding that just right Smokies cabin rental for your family to relax.
A smart choice for a Wears Valley luxury rental cabin is Timbercreek Cabin Rentals. The firm is large enough to have what you desire, and small enough to provide focused, personal attention. Owned by Sevier County natives, these folks have been raised with mountains in their veins and heritage. Timbercreek has premium cabins located all over the centrally located valley area. Explore a lodge creekside in the woods, to a cabin resort community, to a chalet perched at the pinnacle of a secluded ridge, for an unequaled view of the hills and mountain range rolling out before you. Their luxury cabin properties are all put through a screening process to ensure quality standards that meet your expectations. Enjoy a tranquil respite from life at one of their clean and comfortable properties. Then spend time in town enjoying restaurants, attractions, shopping, and the like. Personal service, area knowledge, and willingness to make your experience all it should be makes selecting Timbercreek an easy choice.
A firm like Volunteer Cabin Rentals works hard to provide a quality selection of properties with different options for the needs of their guests. All sizes of homes are offered, from a cozy romantic honeymoon cabin for two, to large group retreat facilities with up to twelve bedrooms.
