Are you and your mate wine lovers? You’re in luck! There are five wineries within 12 miles of each other, and each boasts local wines and unique flavors. Rocky Top Wine Trail offers a four-hour tour of all five wineries, and participants receive a free wine glass and T-shirt. Learn about the magnificent history of the area as you enjoy the wine on your tour.

Horseback Riding (Seasonal)
Horseback riding is another fun way to enjoy the mountains. Smoky Mountain Riding Stables is located inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
“Natural beautiful riding trails await you with an experienced guide that might lead you into a flock of wild turkeys, a herd of wild deer or even a black bear climbing a tree,” the Web site states.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced rider or a beginner – everyone is guaranteed a great ride, they promise. No riding experience is necessary.

Does ice skating sound good to you? How about snow skiing? Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park has both – along with snowboarding, tubing and other outdoor activities, as well as shopping and dining.

Quality couple time could be spent hiking and picnicking around Cade’s Cove, the single most popular destination for visitors to the park. An isolated valley that was once home to numerous settlers before the formation of the National Park, it now offers well preserved homesteads, scenic mountain views and abundant displays of wildlife.
There’s also nothing like taking it all in on the Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook. Enjoy the crisp mountain air and see the beauty of the Smoky Mountains like never before. You’ll want to be sure to capture the moment with plenty of pictures.
End the day at one of our cozy cabins – the location is perfect and the hospitality can’t be beat. Call Heartland Cabin Rentals today at 1-888-711-0087 to reserve your romantic getaway!
