Restaurants Open for Holiday Dining

holiday-dinner.jpgGatlinburg is a special place to stay for Christmas in the SmokiesHeartland Cabin Rentals is gearing up to welcome couples and families to warm and wonderful mountain cabins where Christmas traditions can continue and new ones be discovered.  Not only is your Christmas cabin with crackling fireplace and bubbling hot tub an important part of your holiday celebration, but so are the sweets and eats we look forward to all year long.

If you’re hoping to gather in the kitchen to cook up your Christmas dinner, your Heartland cabin is completely equipped with full refrigerator, microwave, oven and cooktop with plenty of room for making your special recipes.  Cooking utensils are provided, but don’t forget to bring your ‘special pan’ if needed.  There’s even a dishwasher for cleaning up afterwards so that you can sit back and relax, and simply ‘enjoy.’  If cooking your own meal isn’t in your plans, Gatlinburg restaurants are opening their doors and offering their regular menus and/or traditional Christmas meals, and local grocery stores prepare hot and ready meals for pick up.
