  • If you are not going to Cherokee but are going to Gatlinburg, you gotta take the beautiful ride over the mountains to see this museum. Great little walk and the history and surroundings are to be seen...  more »
  • Very good place to relax and take in some history. Something for everyone. Old historic buildings, creek, information and lectures, gift shop and maybe some wild turkeys and Elk. And it's free.  more »
  • Great place to take the kidos to learn about and see how early settlers lived. Farm animals, and a beautiful walking trail. Also, if you're lucky you can catch sight of the beautiful elk that come to ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Really impressive glimpse into the olden days. Love the chickens and hogs when they are out! And the structures themselves are impressive.
  • I am a sucker for homesteading and self-reliance. We drove past this on our way to a cabin to the north and left early a few days later just to walk this place. SO GLAD WE DID! It is so amazing to see how independent and self-sustaining this homestead could have been. My children love the barn, cobb house, and pig pen. I loved the blacksmithing, apple orchard, and log cabin. Just beautiful!
  • Beautiful, peaceful, educational, at your own pace. The rangers and staff are great, the country is so beautiful, even when the trees are bare. You walk along a beautiful creek, and meet elk in the park, and in downtown!
  • Great grouping of old building. And informative sign posting.

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.
