Find it on the Quieter Side.

Stay and Play in the Smokies is a vacation trip planner for relaxing, rejuvenating escapes to the quieter side of the Great Smoky Mountains, in and around the mountains of western North Carolina.  Whether it's Franklin, Highlands, Bryson City, Sylva, Dillsboro, Cherokee or Cashiers, NC that you wish to visit, we have you covered.  

Now that the Holiday season is behind us, and 2014 is ahead of us, we recommend using our website as a trip planning resource for your visit this coming Spring/Summer.  Be on the lookout for new weekly content, as we keep you up-to-date on the latest happenings throughout the western North Carolina Smoky Mountains.  Or, perhaps you're looking for a winter escape?  If so, contact our premium Stay listings for low rates through March, and find the perfect Smoky Mountain cabin this winter! 
Winter is  a great time to check out all of the hiking trails, scenic drives , and waterfalls our beautiful area has to offer.  With the leaves off of the trees, the views are almost endless!
