I’m happy to report that one of our long-time advertisers, Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg, is open and ready to welcome you. Although they did experience the loss of some of their cabins during the recent wildfire, they are very happy to report that they’re open for business and still have many cabin available for rent in the Gatlinburg area.


Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg has also recently launched the #GatlinburgStrong Campaign, in which they will be offering 15% off on reservations during 2017. You can find additional information on this special offer by clicking here.

While there was a lot of destruction and damage from the fires, many businesses – restaurants, shops, and attractions – did not sustain any damage at all. In fact, downtown Gatlinburg was virtually untouched – and is currently open to the public.

Hikers should also note that the vast majority of the national park was untouched, and the vast majority of the more than 800 miles of trails in the park are currently open, including the Alum Cave Trail, which has recently reopened after the completion of a two-year rehabilitation project.

The winter “off-season” offers a great opportunity for fans of the Great Smoky Mountains, as well as hikers in general, to support the Gatlinburg region. Spend a day, the weekend, or an entire week; either way, your vacation dollars will help the entire community. I know that Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg would love and appreciate your support!
