Great Smokey Mountains

Smokey Mountains - Biltmore EstateWithin one day’s drive for half the population of the United States, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park may not be the oldest national park in the U.S., but it is the most visited.

Seventeen years in the making, Mr. and Mrs. W. Davis had the idea in 1923, after visiting national parks in the west.

Smokey MountainsTo say it was not an easy effort, is an understatement, and from the outset, it appeared to have insurmountable obstacles. There were financial interests to overcome like the Little River Railroad Co, timber, pulp and fiber companies, political factions, and business interests.

Descendents of pioneers had lived in Cades Cove since the 1800’s and others had bought property to build vacation homes. The ultimate price was in the neighborhood of $12,000,000. The states of Tennessee and North Carolina donated $2,000,000 each and the Rockefellers gifted $5,000,000.

Dedicated in 1940, and due to its original charter, it is unique in the national park system, and to this day is free to all visitors.

Smokey Mountains

Townsend, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge form a triangle and are the major entrance points on the Tennessee side of the park. On the North Carolina side, you have Cherokee, (the Indian reservation and casino) and Bryson City. McGee Tyson, Knoxville’s airport is about 40 miles west of Gatlinburg and 25 miles from Townsend. The closest major airport in North Carolina is in Asheville.

Smokey Mountains

In Townsend, TN, “The Peaceful Side of the Smokies,” you have the natural beauty and serenity of the Cades Cove entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park. Cades Cove is a pioneer settlement. It is an eleven-mile single lane one way loop road sprinkled with old log homes, cantilever barns, churches, cemeteries, a gristmill and other structures important to life in the late 1800’s.

You can camp at the cove, bike the loop, ride a horse or catch a carriage ride. Auto-touring, hiking, biking, fly-fishing, golfing, tubing, kayaking, caving, horseback riding, strolling the bike trail or 900 miles of trails in the park, and touring the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center, can keep you busy for days.

Spend days at leisure and feel you have stepped back in time. The only thing you need to bring with you is a good pair of shoes or hiking boots and perhaps a bathing suit. Each year, spring and fall, are the festivals at the Townsend Visitors Center, Cades Cove and the Heritage Center featuring mountain crafts, food, and music. Activities set the stage but nature steals the show in Townsend.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are hopping with every activity know to man. In Pigeon Forge you have a shop till you drop experience with several huge outlet malls. Music theaters and Dollywood, an amusement park, are centrally located.

Smokey Mountains

Fine restaurants, shopping, the aquarium, the arts and crafts community, and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail are the best Gatlinburg has to offer.

Roaring Fork, somewhat similar to Cades Cove, is an incredible driving experience in the park. At stoplight # 8 in Gatlinburg, turn onto Cherokee Orchard Road and just keep staying to the right. It will take you to the entrance of the six mile one way road that follows a river a good portion of the way. It is narrow, so don’t attempt to take a motor home around it or you will get hung up making the sharp turns onto the bridges crossing the streams.

Close by is Glade Road an eight mile loop road around the arts and craft community. Pick up a brochure at any one of the stores. Each of the 109 stores is numbered, and is listed on the brochure with a picture and a description of what they sell.

Smokey MountainsEach year Elkmont, another campground/picnic area in the park, hosts the synchronized fireflies. There are only two places in the world you can see this phenomenon, Japan and the Great Smokies in early June. Hundreds of people are shuttled into this area; you sit on a blanket and wait till dark for the show. The fireflies all turn off and back on at the same time. It is like waves of flickering light all around you.

The road between Gatlinburg and Cherokee is 33 miles long and climbs up and over the mountains. Newfound Gap at 5046 feet straddles the state line and the Appalachian Trail. If you take the side road up to Clingmans Dome, at 6643 feet, it is the highest point in the park. On a clear day take the time to climb the tower.

Gracehill B&BGracehill Bed and Breakfast is in the middle of the triangle formed by Townsend, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and being only minutes from all three, we have the best of all worlds. Newly built in 2000, it is a luxurious, romantic, inn.

Gracehill is equipped with king bed pillow tops, hot tub, whirlpools, steam shower, fireplaces, HD LCD TV’s with VCR & blue ray DVD player, library, WI-FI, guest computer, fitness center, masseuse, antiques, original oil paintings, 12ft ceilings, an eclectic mix with 200 ton of dry stack stone, cedar siding and lush gardens. All this, AND adjacent to the national park! Breakfast is a three-course event. We use different china and flower arrangements each day and don’t repeat menus. You have a choice of eating on the front veranda overlooking all of Townsend, the formal dining room, the morning room with a blazing fire, or the back patio under a wisteria draped pergola by the fishpond. Our personalized service will tailor make a vacation perfect for your tastes and desires. A beautiful sunrise, a day spent doing nothing or everything and the romance of watching the sun go down over the mountain ranges of the Great Smokies. Black Tie Class, Blue Jean Comfort….
