Whether you are celebrating an anniversary, enjoying your honeymoon, or just taking the time to reconnect with the one you love, Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains are the ideal location for a romantic getaway. Highlands Condos has put together six of our best ideas for making your vacation at our Gatlinburg luxury condo rentals one to remember.
1. Enjoy a Candlelit Dinner
Gatlinburg has some intimate, wonderful restaurants, many of which boast a riverfront location. There's nothing more romantic than lighting some candles and enjoying a fine wine at one of these memorable eateries. However, you don't necessarily have to go out to have a romantic meal. When you stay at our Gatlinburg luxury condos, you get a fully-equipped kitchen that makes it easy for you to prepare a gourmet meal for two. Just supply the candles and the imagination, then let your secluded surroundings work their magic!
2. Take in the Views
Nothing puts life in perspective like scenic Smoky Mountain views. Spectacular vistas can be enjoyed at various points in and around Gatlinburg. Journey to the top of the Space Needle for unsurpassed views of the skyline and the Great Smoky Mountains beyond. Make certain to take plenty of photographs of the view, and ask someone to take at least one picture that includes the two of you. The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is another exciting alternative. The lift takes passengers to the top of Crockett Mountain, allowing exquisite views of the city below. Consider a twilight ride to dial up the romance factor. Don’t forget, you can always enjoy amazing mountain views right from your condo’s balcony!
3. Take a Stroll
Gatlinburg's River Walk is the ideal site for a romantic stroll. Follow the pathway beside the scenic Little Pigeon River where you can listen to the soothing sound of the water and stop to steal a kiss at one of the many graceful gazebos found along the way. Shops and restaurants are found all along the path, allowing you to indulge a sweet tooth or pick up a meaningful remembrance of your special afternoon together.
4. Enjoy a Soak in Your Whirlpool Tub
There are few things that are as romantic as a long, relaxing soak in a jetted tub. Fortunately, many of our Gatlinburg luxury condo rentals feature a luxurious whirlpool bath. Fill the tub with hot water and scented bubble bath, then get ready to enjoy a singularly romantic evening. Pour a little bubbly and include a few chocolate-covered strawberries to set the scene. Take turns rubbing each other's shoulders for the ultimate in pampering and relaxation.
5. Warm up by the Fireplace
No one can resist the charm of a natural stone fireplace, especially on a chilly Tennessee evening. Of course, the fireplace is probably most appealing when the snow is falling outside and you and your sweetie are warmly snuggled by the light of the flames. Still, those early autumn evenings in front of the fireplace are reminiscent of nights spent around a campfire, and that is a situation that all but guarantees romance.
6. Watch a Romantic Movie
Whether your idea of onscreen romance is Casablanca or the Princess Bride, you can't go wrong with a night of cuddling up in front of the television with a classic movie. Make a bowl of popcorn and open a favorite bottle of wine as you prepare to enjoy a timeless romantic flick with your sweetheart. Our condos have flat screen televisions and plush seating to ensure that your movie viewing experience is always a pleasure.
