1. Make a budget.

Worrying about money can be one of the biggest sources of vacation stress. The best way to nip these concerns in the bud, is to make a budget before you hit the road. This way, you’ll already know how much you’re going to spend on vacation and you can put your finances out of your mind.

The Oak Tree Lodge makes Smoky Mountain vacations even more affordable by offering complimentary attraction tickets to some of the best things to do in the area. There’s nothing better than going white water rafting, go-karting, or mini golfing for free!

2. Leave your work at home and get outdoors.

In today’s modern world, it can be hard to get away from your work. Instead of checking your email every six minutes, try to unplug and really enjoy your vacation. With our outdoor pool, or private balconies, and our proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it’s easy to get some fresh air when you stay at the Oak Tree Lodge. If you need to check in with your office, try to limit yourself to just a brief period each day. All of our rooms come with free high speed wireless internet, so you can access your email at your convenience.

3. Schedule some downtime.   

There are so many exciting things to see in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg! However, if you try to do it all at once you might burn out. This is especially true for young children, who are known to get a bit cranky if they don’t take a nap. To keep everyone’s spirits up, plan on spending an hour or two at our hotel in the afternoon. Whether you watch a movie, lounge by the pool, or just take it easy, it’s always good to kick back and relax during your vacation.
