Spring in the Smokies 2015

Praise our maker, Spring has sprung here in the Smokies! The Dogwoods are exploding into popcorn trees, the colors are blooming all across the motor and hiking trails, the temperatures are as comfortable as we'll see all year, and it's a prime to consider coming out to the Smokies for a vacation.

Need an additional reason? Ok, how about that Dollywood is now open with Festival of the Nations? This is the 30th anniversary of the park becoming Dollywood and there will be new things being offered throughout the year (including the huge new DreamMore Dollywood Resort). Ireland is the focus again for Festival of the Nations and there are new performers taking stage throughout as well. "Timber!" and the "Alash Ensemble" will definitely be acts you want to check out. See more on this at

Make your Spring getaway something to remember by making a reservation with Cove Mountain.

The Year Begins With The Smokies

It's that time of the year when it's not really a time of the year at all - the big holidays are over with, the mountains are bare, and things are quiet for the most part until mid-April... but don't go thinking that this some sort of despondent time for the Smokies. The low traffic and even lower temperatures afford those who choose to come out the opportunity to enjoy East Tennessee at it's most solemnly dignified. No color in the hills, but they project a haunting beauty all the same, and the atmosphere lends itself well to romantic getaways and vacations you couldn't take during the holidays because the holidays themselves were no holiday at all!

Such are just a few examples of why you should consider a trip to the Smoky Mountains here in January. If you'd like some more, consider the following:

1. Gas prices are currently hovering slightly above or slightly below the $2.00.

2. The 25th Wilderness Wildlife Week in Pigeon Forge will be starting up at the end of the month.

3. We have plenty of luxury Smoky Mountain cabins waiting for you here at Cove Mountain Resort! Anywhere from 1 bedroom to 7 right here in Wears Valley between Pigeon Forge and Townsend, TN (some cabins are even pet-friendly!)

The Biggest New Years Eve Party in the Smokies

In the Smoky Mountains, as anyone who has ever visited us would know, we take our special events seriously. Our Harvest Festivals are saturated with colors, our Springs are brisk with bloom to spare, our Summers are wall-to-wall attractions and special events and our Winterfests are full of holiday cheer.

And during New Years Eve, we both end AND begin the years with a bang!

Come to Gatlinburg for the big New Years Eve party where there will be many restaurants and local places celebrating the event. There will be entertainment leading up to final countdown, and then the epic ball drop at the final seconds of 2014 that ends with an EXPLOSION of fireworks on the Space Needle in the center of downtown Gatlinburg. More than 15 minutes of colorful sparks and flames will fire from the tower.

Complete the New Years Eve experience with a luxury cabin in the Smokies from Cove Mountain! Have the time of your life out in Gatlinburg and then come back to a regal and relaxing house of your very own on the quiet side of the mountains. See our cabins at
