Not really honeymoon related, but Darling Husband and I are looking to do 4 nights/5 days in a cabin somewhere for some non-beach downtime for our 2nd anniversary in June.
NC and TN both seem to have good places to book cabins. Is one area better than the other? They’re both equally as far (we are in Ontario). I’m leaning towards Gatlinburg but am definitely open to other options. Alternatively, are there other mountains we should consider that are within a 10-12 hour drive? We want to do lots of hiking/nature-seeing, hot tubbing, and be close enough to somewhere with a few good restaurant options.
Looks like there are LOTS of places that rent cabins so I would rather go with somewhere that people have had good experiences. Any recommendations? Tips for making it a bit more affordable? Things we shouldnt miss in late June/early July?

We went with Mountain Laurel Chalets or something in Gatlinburg. Loved it. Loved the cabin, loved the view, everything was great! We went in winter, but we drove through one of the state parks just to see the sights. There’s a lot of hiking trails nearby, but we went to a little restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg for a delicious sandwich, and the owner told us all sorts of things we can do around town depending on what we’re interested in. And where to go during the warmer months to see what.

Hi! My fiance and I spent a few days in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area a couple of years ago and loved it. He rented a cabin through http://www.sunsetcottage.com and we had a really good experience. Actually, we stayed in this cabin, which they call a one bedroom, but it was actually more like a studio. It was perfect, with a small balcony that had a hot tub on it.
We went in December. We went ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg. It was an indoor rink, so you could probably still do that in the summer if you wanted to. We also went to the aquarium, which I loved, and walked around in downtown Gatlinburg.
It was a fun short getaway trip, I think, and now we’re planning a mountain wedding up there!

My fiance and I were once planning a honeymoon in the mountains and we were going to stay at this cabin (it has an indoor heated pool, outdoor hot tub, indoor jacuzzi, an indoor movie theater, multiple fireplaces, a bedroom with a fireplace in it, and floor to ceiling windows in the upstairs bedroom) It ranges from $230-$450 a night and if you stay for 7 nights you get one night free:
Here’s some more cabins with indoor pools:
