Smoky Mountain Destination Experience
While you’re planning your trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, make sure you book a farm experience and rent our beautiful lodge or cabin on property.
Our Main Lodge sits on seven beautiful acres at the base of Cove Mountain. The lodge has five private bedrooms, five bathrooms and a large game room / bunk room. There is plenty of room for everyone to feel right at home! Our property continues on across the street, where our horses and farm animals live. One of our guests favorite pastimes is walking around, taking in the breathtaking scenery from many angles. A Kings Lodge is the perfect place to create memories that will last a lifetime!
There’s a reason that Laurel Falls is one of the most popular waterfall hikes in the Smoky Mountains! This gorgeous, two-tiered, 80-foot waterfall is a sight you don’t want to miss. There’s a footbridge that crosses the stream at the base of the upper falls, so you’ll have beautiful, up-close views of the waterfall as you walk across! To get to Laurel Falls, hike the Laurel Falls Trail for 1.3 miles. The waterfall gets its name from the mountain laurel that blooms along the trail in May!
Morton Overlook is one of the most popular places to visit in the Smoky Mountains for gorgeous sunset views! It’s a scenic, road-side overlook in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. At Morton Overlook, you’ll be 5,048 feet above sea level and will have views of both North Carolina and Tennessee! On clear nights, you can even see the lights of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg below. Morton Overlook is located on US 441. Travel south on US 441, and after you pass through the second tunnel outside of Gatlinburg, Morton Overlook will be the second one on the right. If you’re traveling north on US 441, the overlook is the third one on your left after Newfound Gap.
Mount LeConte is the third highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! There are 4 sub peaks above 6,000 feet on the mountain: West Point, High Top, Cliff Tops and Myrtle Point. At Myrtle Point, you’ll have panoramic views, and it’s the best spot on Mount LeConte to watch a sunrise! Cliff Top also offers breathtaking views. To get to the summit of Mount LeConte, you have several trail options. You can take the Alum Cave Trail, the Boulevard Trail, the Bullhead Trail, the Rainbow Falls Trail, or the Trillium Gap Trail.
At 6,643 feet, Clingmans Dome is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. That’s why it’s no secret that the Clingmans Dome Observation Tower offers the best views of the mountains! On clear days, views can expand over 100 miles. The observation tower at the summit offers visitors 360-degree views of the mountains. To get there, you’ll have a steep, half-mile walk from the parking lot to the tower at the top.
