A family enjoying a swimming pool.Summer vacation season is finally here – and we couldn’t be more excited! During the warm weather months, swimming pools are one of the most sought after cabin amenities in Gatlinburg, TN. To help you make the most of your next getaway, Hemlock Hills Resort Rentals has put together five reasons you will love staying at Gatlinburg cabins with swimming pool access.

1. Beat the Heat

From June through August, it’s common for Gatlinburg to have highs in the 80s. Going for a swim is the perfect way to cool off during the dog days of summer. Nothing is more refreshing than jumping into the water after a few hours of exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or walking around downtown Gatlinburg. If you bring a noodle or an inflatable raft, you can kick back and enjoy a nice relaxing float in the comfortably cool water.

2. Perfect for KidsLittle girl with a beach ball next to a swimming pool.

Our Gatlinburg cabins with swimming pool access are always a hit with kids! Your children will love racing each other, playing Marco Polo, enjoying a game of freeze tag, or just splashing around in the water. When you have access to a pool on vacation, your little ones will always have something to keep them occupied. In fact, convincing your kids to get out of the pool may be the most challenging part of your trip!

3. Ultimate Relaxation

While the kids go swimming, parents can enjoy some prime relaxation by the pool. Laying out next to the water with a good book or a magazine is a wonderful way to unwind. Of course, adults are always welcome to jump in the water to enjoy some wet and wild fun with the kids! Whether you decide to go for a swim or stay on dry land, you’ll have a great time soaking up the sun. Don’t forget to pack some sunscreen!

4. Rainy Days Won’t Spoil the Fun

Some of our cabins come with indoor pool access, so you can go swimming even when the weather is less than ideal. Spending the day at the indoor pool is a great backup activity if a rainy forecast puts your plans to go hiking or picnicking on hold. When you stay at the Southern Living cabin, you’ll have the best of both worlds: access to an indoor pool and an outdoor pool (not to mention a sauna)!

If you’re someone who likes to stay active on vacation, you should definitely consider renting a cabin with pool access. Swimming a few laps is excellent exercise, and it’s fun too! Visiting the pool a few times during your getaway means that you can reward yourself with some pastries from the Donut Friar or an extra serving of flapjacks at the Pancake Pantry!
