I got some good info about attractions from Smokies...thanks! But I am having a hissy fit about the cabin rentals....this is hard! Not to mention, my sweet husband has invited his mom to fly down from Michigan and spend the week with us in the mountains...talk about pressure LOL! I have checked out a few cabins at Jackson Mountain Homes. They look beautiful online. The prices range from 170.00 per night up to 300.00. I decided we are going to go either the week before memorial day or week after...Probably looking to leave out on May 29th and staying until June 5th. That way, we aren't traveling on the weekends. To put it blunt, my husband and I can barely drive a straight road, much less a mountain! Really, I am exaggerating a bit, but really, we have a minivan and my husband likes to hug curves (aggravates me!). So, does anyone know anything about Jackson Mountain Rentals and their driving situations? Also, is it better to have a Mountain view or be by a mountain river? I saw one cabin that was beautiful, but it said it was in the forest..that's all. I would appreciate some help if anyone could. I pretty much have the restaurants picked and attractions picked. Except the aquarium...is it worth it and what is it called? Ok, end of questions lol for now anyways! Thanks soooo much! God Bless!!!
