Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time with today’s Groupon: for $169, you get a two-night stay in a one- or two-bedroom cabin at Hidden Creek Cabins (up to a $398.70 value, including tax and cleaning fee). Just a three- to four-hour drive or 13-hour hot air balloon flight from Charlotte, this Smoky Mountain retreat is a convenient destination for explorers of all levels.
Hidden Creek’s beautifully maintained cabins are a reflection of the pristine landscape surrounding them. Choose from cabins on the creek, such as the two-bedroom cottage, and cabins with views, such as Pop’s Cabin—which features a backyard hot tub, a perfect spot to unwind after a day of hiking or to conduct a solemn but tiny re-enactment of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. For those bringing the whole family or five hypnotized strangers who help carry groceries, Hidden Creek’s two-bedroom lodges, such as the Skytop Cabin, can accommodate up to 10 guests (an additional $20 fee per person after the first four people will apply).
Stir-crazy vacationers can venture out to nearby attractions, including a casino and a bear zoo, to unwind and throw forest bloodhounds off their scent. Or visit the Cataloochee Ski Area, just a 30-minute trek from the cabins, for some stick-mounted slip and slide. To stay hot on a cold night, fire up the hot tub or sit around an actual fire, or, as city slickers might know it, "angry light."

- The days and nights that we stayed were not long enough. Aside from a few short trips venturing around the area, we were satisfied to just stay at the house and enjoy the rest and relaxation. – Shelley
