Offering spectacular natural beauty and a variety of fun attractions, Pigeon Forge truly has something for everyone. To help you plan your trip, Eagles Ridge Resort has put together four tips for having your family reunion at our large luxury cabins in Pigeon Forge.
1. Choose the Perfect Cabin for Your Family
One of the best parts of holding your reunion at a cabin in Pigeon Forge is having the entire family together under one roof. The trick is finding the right property to accommodate all of your aunts, uncles, and cousins. Eagles Ridge Resort offers a variety of large cabins that range from 6 – 9 bedrooms and can sleep anywhere from 16 – 24 guests.
We suggest reaching out to your relatives as early as possible to find out who is planning on attending the reunion. Once you have a final headcount, you can browse our online listing of large luxury cabins in Pigeon Forge to find the rental with all of the amenities you are looking for. We also invite you to call our friendly vacation specialists to get a personalized cabin recommendation for your group.
2. Try to Schedule Your Reunion Around a Long Weekend
With everyone’s busy schedules, finding a time for your family reunion that works for all of your relatives isn’t always easy. Long weekends are usually great for reunions because most people get those days off from work. Some three day weekends to consider for your reunion include:
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- Presidents Day
- Memorial Day
- Labor Day
- Columbus Day
- Veterans Day
3. Take Advantage of Attractions with Group Rates
When you’re traveling with a large group, finding affordable activities for everyone to enjoy can sometimes be a challenge. Fortunately, many attractions in the Pigeon Forge area offer special rates for groups of 15 or 20 people that make it easy to pack tons of fun into your vacation. Some popular attractions that typically offer group discounts include:
- Dollywood’s Splash Country
- Speedwerkz Exotic Car Museum
- Parrot Mountain
- Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at The Island
- SpeedZone Fun Park
We recommend calling any attraction you are considering visiting in advance to confirm that they offer group rates.
4. Save Money by Dining In
While you will definitely want to visit some of Pigeon Forge’s wonderful restaurants, dining out as a large group for every meal can add up quickly. Instead of going out all the time, we suggest eating at least one meal a day right in your cabin. All of our properties come with fully furnished kitchens, so you can easily whip up a tasty meal for your whole family. With ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, silverware, and more, our cabins have everything you need to cook dinner – all you have to bring are the ingredients.
Preparing a meal as a family can be a lot of fun, especially when all of your relatives pitch in. Many of our cabins also come with outdoor grills, so you can have a BBQ with burgers, steaks, hot dogs, and all of your favorite side dishes.
