Looking for a staycation?
We know that life can get hectic sometimes and maybe all we want for this special day is to spend quality time together without having to drive anywhere. Whispering Pines, in downtown Pigeon Forge, offers one to four bedroom luxury condos with plenty of on-site amenities to take advantage of, so you can definitely enjoy a day in just the two of you. Each condo comes with a private balcony that overlooks either the city, mountains, or a secluded nature view. To start your morning, I recommend making a nice warm pot of coffee to sip on together out on the balcony. You’ll love getting to take in all the beautiful sights around you as you relax with a cup of coffee in hand. Ready for some delicious breakfast? If you like to make homemade meals then you’ll love having a fully equipped kitchen in your unit! You and your sweetheart can serve up a tasty meal (heart shaped pancakes to celebrate the special day anyone?) and indulge in the comfort of your own space. Once you’ve let your food digest, how about going for a little swim? We know it’s cold outside, but lucky for us, there’s an indoor pool and hot tub! Our favorite part about the pool area is that it’s an all glass building, so you can look out over the mountains while you’re swimming around and having fun. After your quick dip, you both can get warmed up in the relaxing hot tub. Nothing beats an afternoon at the pool. There’s also a fitness room where you both can get a workout and put on a show you love on the tv. Now that you’ve got a little exercise in you, we have another romantic option for you guys. How does an in room couples massage sound? We have a wonderful company called Smoky Mountain Massage that will come right to your unit so you can enjoy being pampered for a little bit. And finally, to end an amazing day in together, you can grill up some mouth-watering steaks at the grilling pavillion and open up a bottle of wine to share. You can also rent some free dvd’s at the front office and have a couples movie night. You’ll be talking about this romantic night in for years to come, you both needed and deserved it!
Looking for a little adventure?
If you’re the more adventurous kind of couple then you’re coming to the right place. Are you ready to wake up and see the gorgeous sunrise together? We recommend checking out the Cades Cove Loop that will feature numerous pull-offs so you can watch the sun rise over our majestic mountains. It’s such a romantic sight to see and we know you and your loved one will really be pleased with the beauty surrounding you. If you’re both a fan of hiking, you can also find some excellent trails here like the Cades Cove Nature Trail and more. Pack up a little breakfast and have a picnic if it isn’t too cold outside! If you’d rather go out for breakfast, make sure to visit Brick & Spoon in Pigeon Forge for some fantastic breakfast and brunch options that you both will love. Are you ready to get whisked up in the air? Our next suggestion is visiting the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at the Island. This enclosed ferris wheel (that is heated) will take you up about 200 feet where you can see all of the city and the beautiful mountains that surround it. Cuddle up and get ready to see some truly breathtaking views on this spectacular attraction. This one stop shop also has plenty of shopping, attractions, and dining options to check out while you’re here. Next up on the agenda is checking out the Rocky Top Wine Trail. You and your significant other can embark on this 12 mile journey that will feature 5 different and amazing wineries where you can try some samples of over 70 unique kinds of wine. Best of all? The trail is 100% free and we know you will love this one! It’s time for a real adrenaline rush. The Rocky Top Mountain Coaster is a brand new one located on Veterans Blvd that I recommend visiting once the sun goes down. They will light up your journey as you twist and turn through the neon colors at the speed you prefer. That’s right, you don’t have to be a speed demon to do this one. We know you both will be smiling by the end, it’s so much fun. To end this magical day, it’s time to grab a delicious dinner at the new Five Oaks Farm Kitchen. Their eclectic menu features plenty of food for you both to share. From smokehouse to farm table options, we are sure that you both will be talking about this place all night. Nothing beats getting to enjoy a romantic dinner together to end one fantastic Valentine’s Day in the Smokies!
