  • It was cold but fun to walk around and take pictures. Not a huge place but beautiful location and fun place for kids. Worth the stop if you are in the area and the visitor next door is nice too.  more »

  • Really neat place. My 6 yr old also enjoyed it.
  • This is a quick outdoor visit and excellent for young kids to explore and run around. Great depiction of mountain farm life at the turn of the century.
  • Very nice example of an old homestead. Bonus was getting to see the elk come down off the mountain.
  • Great museum. You actually get to see what life was like more than a century ago. The preservation is up to par. It is a good place for families as kids can run around too. It's also at the beginning (or end) of the river trail which is nice in itself.
  • Ever wonder what it was like to live in the Great Smoky Mountains hundreds of years ago? If so, the Mountain Farm Museum should be your #1 destination the next time you visit the Cherokee, NC area. From a small mountain cabin to a large barn, many structures have been transported from throughout the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and preserved here. See how our ancestors survived in the wilderness with the bare essentials. Be sure to allot several hours for the experience!

Where to stay in Cherokee

Cherokee has no shortage of hotels, motels, and inns. Accommodations range from basic and affordable to lavish and extremely expensive. A towering casino downtown offers many rooms, but rustic cabins and cottages are more characteristic of the area. These places offer mountain views as well as fully equipped kitchens and in-room fireplaces and hot tubs. If you wish to explore the Great Smoky Mountains on your own terms, consider one of the area's campgrounds. Most are full-service, featuring both trailer and tent sites as well as hot showers, electric hookups, and on-site grocery stores.
