Do you need a vacation from your vacation? Some people stress out so much about planning the perfect trip that they actually make themselves miserable. At Cherokee Lodge, we want your vacation in the Smoky Mountains to be relaxing, fun, and most importantly, stress free. To help you find serenity in the Smokies, we have come up with some great tips and tricks to leave your worries behind when you stay at our Pigeon Forge condos.

1. Don’t Overpack


One of the greatest sources of stress for vacationers is packing. Even though they are only leaving for a week, some people bring enough supplies for a month! This type of obsessive overpacking is a waste of time and energy. Instead of trying to pack for every possible scenario, do a little research beforehand. A lot of times, you will never end up using half of the things you bring with you on your trip.

Our condos in Pigeon Forge are already stocked with many of the comforts of home. With fully furnished kitchens, our condos have appliances and full sets of dishes and glassware. Additionally, our walk-in laundry rooms come with a starter set of detergent. If you have more questions about what is already available in your condo, just check out our website or call us.

2. Check For Specials

Whenever you begin to plan a vacation, you wonder if you have enough money saved up for the trip. Planning out your budget for a place to stay and meals can be enough to stress you out over even taking a vacation. Luckily, there are ways to ensure you have enough money to go enjoy yourself without having to constantly check your bank account.

The best way to avoid financial stress on your vacation is to come up with a budget and stick with it. Before you book your room, be sure to check to see if there are any seasonal specials that you can take advantage of. Cherokee Lodge is currently offering huge discounts so be sure you check out all of our deals and specials.

3. Schedule Time Together and Time Alone


Perhaps it’s time for a romantic getaway with your significant other. When you’re on a family vacation you obviously want to spend most of your time with your family! However, having some time to yourself is also important too. A bit of downtime in our Pigeon Forge condos will help you keep up your energy and your good mood for the rest of the day. Whether it is enjoying some quiet time on the balcony listening to the birds chirping or sitting in your private bedroom as you wind down from the day, everyone needs some alone time.

Our Pigeon Forge condos are designed with privacy in mind. With private bathrooms for every bedroom, spending an hour reading or napping by yourself or with your spouse will be convenient and comfortable. When you take a vacation with your family, you want to be able to spend as much time with them as possible, but there is nothing wrong with taking a moment to yourself.
