I've seen a lot of old cabins in my life, but this one is worth the very short walk. You can see it from the parking lot, so the walk is really short. The cabin is pretty innovative for the fine. But, let's you step back back into those early days. Go see!

The cabin is on the Cherokee Orchard Road just outside of Gatlinburg. The footing is rocky of course, but it is an interesting example of log cabin architecture.

Take a few minutes to check out this area. The cabin is interesting - especially when you reflect upon how primitive life was at the time this cabin was occupied. The surrounding area is beautiful and worth the time to do a little easy hiking. I've been in the Summer and the Fall - loved my visit each time...... Word... More

We just kind of stumbled on this nice little stop as we were exploring Gatlinburg. The cabin was very interesting, then we took the short hike to the grist mill. It's an easy hike and very pretty, even in the winter when we were there. I would definitely recommend it to families or people who aren't physically able to do... More

Worth the time to stop and see. You can quickly tour the cabin and the barn. The fireplace is amazing if you really take the time to look at it from the outside. There is a hiking trail adjacent to this stop. Didn't take time to walk but lots of people were.

It's not a huge exhibit, it's the cabin and then a barn behind it. Cellar can also be seen. You park near the road and walk down. This stop is not handicap accessible, you need to be able to walk down, stepping over roots and rocks. That said, it is a short and easy walk, not even considered a hike.... More

If you love history, take time to visit the Ogle farm and cabin. The park service has done an excellent job of providing a printed guide that gives an accurate overview of how hard the life of mountain pioneers really was. Seeing how the cold winter winds must have gone around the log home was a sobering thought. The nature... More

I always enjoy going to this cabin. It was the first one I ever saw that was preserved from long ago. The park service has had to put on a new roof. They did try to make it seem as though it was original to the rest of the house, but you can tell it's new if you get a... More

First stop on the motor trail. the old house is very interesting. we found the trail going the back way from the barn. looks like most people take the main trail and go back after seeing the watermill. the way we went was very pretty and untouched looking. little babbling brooks and streams lead you to the watermill. absolutely peaceful!!...
