5 Reasons to Spend Christmas Snuggled in the Smoky Mountains

We have been stuck inside our same spaces for two COVID Christmases now and you know what sounds amazing?! A holiday where you don’t have to decorate the tree, clean for the folks, or plan what to do for a whole group of people. And what says Christmas more than the snowy mountains?! At Stay Minty, we have the BEST rentals in the Smokies to spend Christmas in. Let us show you 5 reasons to you should spend Christmas snuggled in the Smoky Mountains.

Reason #1: SNOW!

We all want a white Christmas and at our Stay Minty rentals, we have cabins high in the mountains where it is almost guaranteed to be a White Christmas. There are areas to walk throw snowballs and even some streams to do some ice fishing! Then come in and cozy up to the fireplace.

Reason #2: Cabin Amenities

There are so many reasons to rent a home away from home in the Smokies. Next being, you have amenities in a cabin that you don’t at home. Chef’s kitchens, hot tubs, karaoke machines, arcade games, INDOOR POOLS… There’s plenty to do after opening gifts and playing in the snow all day. So while the kids play, you can get what you really want for Christmas. A nap.

Reason #3: Winter Activities in Town

From now until NYE, Stay Minty’s cabins are decorated head to toe for the holiday. You don’t have to unwrap the lights from the pre-lit tree that don’t work anymore. You don’t have to dig out the ornaments out of the back of the basement. Everything is set up and ready for Santa to come when you check in. One less thing on your to do list.

Reason #5: Room for the Whole Family to Spread Out
