There’s something about sitting on a porch or a deck that really connects people, isn’t there? It’s as though there’s a sense of timelessness about the whole experience. You, your family, and your friends could have been relaxing in the shade, enjoying the fresh air and a cold drink just as easily 50 (or even 100!) years ago as you can today. There’s nothing like the simple pleasures!

Sadly, sometimes it seems like the simple pleasures are even harder to come by in our day-to-day than they ever were. But what better excuse could a person have for prioritizing the good life than when on vacation? And in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the good life – and a good porch – is there for the taking! So, pour yourself a glass of iced tea, and check out these Gatlinburg cabin rentals that promise to exceed your outdoor relaxation expectations.
