Are you dreaming of taking a vacation to the Smoky Mountains but are worried about breaking your budget and being able to afford the trip? We have put together 5 tips to help you have an affordable stay with us here at The Appy Lodge!

Time Your Trip Just Right

Lodging rates are based on the demand in the area so the busier the area is, the more you’ll have to pay for hotel rooms and cabins. One of the best ways to have an affordable stay at our hotel is to plan your trip during a time that the demand is low. Not only will you get a great deal at that time but you’ll also avoid traffic, long wait times and have the opportunity to enjoy the solitude of the Smoky Mountains. You’ll find beauty and fun year-round when staying with us so you certainly won’t be missing out! As you’re browsing our guest rooms and rates, take a minute to play around with the dates. Early in the year, the week before or after holidays and just a week or so off from prime weeks can mean saving quite a bit of money. If your vacation time isn’t flexible, consider visiting during the week when rates are also lower than on the weekends. Every week is a great week to be in the mountains and the more you save, the more you can play!
