We have stayed in a cabin both times we have been to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. We love the seclusion of the cabin and having our own space, however, we were thinking about a hotel this time just off the parkway in Gatlinburg b/c of the easy access it would be to the shops and restaurants. I have read many trip reports where people get back to their hotel, rest a bit and head out to the parkway for dinner or some shopping. When you are staying in a cabin, once you're back for the evening, you're back...or at least for us! So what are some thoughts about going form a cabin to a hotel? Pros and cons please!
Thanks in advance,
