Plan a Romantic Valentine’s Day in the Mountains

January 30th 2017

Valentine’s Day is one of those special occasions that have a way of sneaking up on you! How many times have you found yourself scrambling at the last minute trying to make plans? Or maybe this is the first time you have that special someone in your life that you want to create a Valentine memory with. Instead of making yourself crazy at the last minute, why not show that special someone how much they mean to you by planning a romantic get away to the Smoky Mountains? Create treasured memories by enjoying the snow and chilly temps outside, then cozy up in front of a roaring fire inside! Here are some tips to planning a wonderful, romantic Valentine experience in the Smoky Mountains!

Hit The Slopes

Cattaloochee Ski Resort offers great skiing and picturesque mountain views! Whether you are an expert skier or just a beginner, hit the slopes for some skiing or snowboard fun! Cattaloochee has something for skiers or snowboarders of all levels. You know what they say, learning something new together is a great way to strengthen a relationship. Oh, and if you loved to go sledding as a kid, be sure to check out the tubing area as well!

Take a Romantic Stroll Through The Woods 

There’s just something about taking a walk in the great outdoors that says romance! Especially when you’re taking a walk through the woods or taking in breathtaking mountains views found in the Smoky Mountains! With over 100 hiking trails, you and your loved one will never run out of options!

Enjoy An Intimate Dinner 

A romantic Valentines Day getaway is never complete without that dreamy dinner experience! Many restaurants will make it easy for you by offering Valentine’s Day dining experiences, complete with appetizers, drinks, main course and desserts. Many restaurants feature special entertainment as well to further complete the romantic ambience!

Cozy-up Inside

After a busy day enjoying the beautiful outdoors come inside to enjoy your cozy cabin or room. You can cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine. Or maybe light some candles and enjoy a bubbly hot tub. Also, never miss a breathtaking view of the sun as it hides behind the mountains.

Share Breathtaking Views from a Sky Lift

If you want the ultimate excuse to get really close with your partner, then the Gatlinburg Sky Lift is waiting for you! The lift goes high as 1,800 feet in the air; and that means you need to hold to each other (and handrails) really tight. Aside from that, the lift offers you a panoramic view of the downtown Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains.

Enjoy a Scenic Drive Through the Mountains 

Maggie Valley is located just a few miles away from the Smoky Mountain National Forrest. Plan to take a drive along these scenic highways and bask in these beautiful mountain views!

  • We went with a large group to the Maggie Valley Creekside Lodge and they were incredibly helpful and hospitable. The accommodations were great. The large foyer area was wonderful for the group and the staff was incredible. They made us welcome in so many ways. The rates were incredibly reasonable and the room had all the necessary amenities.

  • We loved our visit here! We just got home last night and we all wish we were still there! The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. We spent a lot of time by the stunning creek cooking dinner on the grill and roasting s'mores over the fire pit. It is centrally located to many attractions. We went on many day trips and didn't spend all day in the car getting there. It's also within walking distance of restaurants and shops, but you may find yourself eating by the rushing creek instead!

  • Really enjoyable place to stay. Room had a balcony overlooking the creek. Spacious room with comfortable bed. Staff was very nice and friendly. Took only 35-40 minutes to reach the Valley at Cataloochee where the elk were in rut. Awesome stay and can't wait to go back.


  • Clean, friendly, quiet, relaxing. Heartfelt thanks to Carol and her entire staff for making our group feel at home again this year. They went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed to make our event a success. We will be back again!
