Highway 321 Cabins in Gatlinburg

Blog Home : Category Posts : Highway 321 Cabins in Gatlinburg

Looking to stay in Gatlinburg off the beaten path? Visitors seeking peace and quiet for their vacation should look into staying in some of our Gatlinburg cabins on Highway 321.

Where is Highway 321 in Gatlinburg?

Highway 321 is one of the main ways to reach Gatlinburg, but this might not seem obvious to many visitors. Although this road is one of the main arteries for downtown, it's far less traveled than the popular Highway 411 through Pigeon Forge.

This area is also known as the East Parkway. From Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, you can take US Hwy 441 towards Pigeon Forge, but you can also take US 321 East towards I-40.

This beautiful route is a designated scenic highway that offers gorgeous views of the northern section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With such lovely scenery, the East Parkway region of Gatlinburg is arguably one of the region's hidden treasures.

Why Book a Gatlinburg Cabin on Highway 321?

Other cabin rentals in Gatlinburg, like those in Chalet Village Resort, are closer to Downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. So if you're planning a trip to the Smoky Mountains, why would you pick a less central location for your stay?

The answer depends on what you'd like to get out of your trip.

We've laid out some factors that might make these cabins a great fit for your vacation. Some of our cabins just off of Highway 321, like our cabins the Glades area of Gatlinburg, could be just right for your stay!

So what makes these cabins so special?

A Good Place to Getaway - When Pigeon Forge has lots of traffic for big events or during the busy tourist season, it's nice to stay in a peaceful spot in the mountains. Highway 321 East of Gatlinburg has plenty of cabins in secluded locations, so you can really getaway from the crowds.

Quick access to Downtown Gatlinburg - Though you're off the beaten path, you're not far from all the action. The heart of Gatlinburg is only a short drive away where you can enjoy all manner of attractions, shops, and restaurants.

Easy Come, Easy Go - US Hwy 321 provides quick access to I-40, one the main routes vacationers use to reach the Smoky Mountains. By staying in this part of Gatlinburg, you won't have to drive through the busy Pigeon Forge Parkway to reach your cabin or make your way home.

An Authentic Smoky Mountain Vacation - This unique part of the Smokies has plenty of unique mom and pop shops and restaurants to explore. There's also plenty of local color in this part of the Smokies. This region of Gatlinburg was home to the community of Big Greenbrier, where many early settlers of the Smoky Mountains staked their claim. You can still see the remnants of their homes and barns inside the national park.

Some of the most popular destinations on Hwy 321 are:

  • Glades Arts & Crafts Community
