    Horse back riding at it's best. Trail that take you in to the mountains and Cades Cove that has been set back in time for you to enjoy.

    About an hour away for the cabin is Cades Cove. It is an 11 mile loop trough a valley that used to be a thriving farming community. Stops along the way are at old homesteads and churches. The visitor center at the half way point has a gift shop, an old homestead and a working grist mill.
    Cades Cove is grat hangout spot for wildlife. We saw a mama bear and 2 cubs, they were very calm but you can't get too close!
    At the entrance to Cades Cove loops is a great picnic area! Get there early to get a choice spot next to the river and you can spend the day and get wet!
    There is also a campground and horseback riding tours through Cades Cove.
    A great outdoor day!

    Be careful with this map marker, its incorrect! Please see the other "Cades Cove" we added to our travel guide for correct map marker. Another MUST and its FREE!! Breathtaking, just beautiful scenery! We recommend you visit at dawn or dusk for best chances to view local wildlife. Plan your visit. Take food, snacks, and plenty to drink. There are no restaurants nearby.

    Well worth the drive, about 27 miles from Take Me Away. Visit historic homes, take photos of the mountains and streams. Stop along the way to hike or cool off in the water. Good chance in seeing bear, turkey, deer and elk (mainly in the cooler months). Awesome!

    Beautiful Cades Cove takes us back to a simpler, more peaceful time. Although we've driven the Cove countless times, we always look forward to being there again. The possibility of seeing the deer, turkey, and of course the Smoky Mountain Black Bear, always adds a bit of excitement to our drive. The Cades Cove Picnic Area is one of our favorite places to enjoy our picnic lunch after we've toured the cove.

    Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains and is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smokies. It offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park. Large numbers of white-tailed deer are frequently seen, and sightings of black bear, coyote, ground hog, turkey, raccoon, skunk, and other animals are also possible.

    The valley has a rich history. For hundreds of years Cherokee Indians hunted in Cades Cove but archeologists have found no evidence of major settlements. The first Europeans settled in the cove sometime between 1818 and 1821. By 1830 the population of the area had already swelled to 271. Cades Cove offers the widest variety of historic buildings of any area in the national park. Scattered along the loop road are three churches, a working grist mill, barns, log houses, and many other faithfully restored eighteenth and nineteenth century structures. An inexpensive self-guiding tour booklet available at the entrance to the road provides in-depth information about the buildings and the people who built and used them.

    An 11-mile, one-way loop road circles the cove, offering motorists the opportunity to sightsee at a leisurely pace. Allow at least two to four hours to tour Cades Cove, longer if you walk some of the area's trails. Traffic is heavy during the tourist season in summer and fall and on weekends year-round. While driving the loop road, please be courteous to other visitors and use pullouts when stopping to enjoy the scenery or view wildlife

    Cades Cove is only about 8 miles from the cabin and this is the hottest spot of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you want to almost be guaranteed to see a bear, try the easy and paved Laurel Falls.....

    Step back in time and see how life was lived in the mountains. Cades Cove gives you the opportunity to see what life was like for mountian folk. Spend the day enjoying the setting while you get the chance for an educational experience.

    A splendid drive, with plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities. Not unusual to see more than a dozen deer during a drive or sometimes even black bear cubs in a tree with mama bear serving as lookout on the ground. Many hiking and horseback riding trails - Abrams Falls is a good hike (about 5 miles roundtrip, but a bit challenging in spots). From May through September, Cades Cove Loop Road is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays for hikers and bicyclists, sunup - 10:00 a.m. Terrific way to see the cove....you can rent bikes and helmets for a reasonable fee. http://cadescove.net
