The Noah "Bud" Ogle cabin is a unique gem for anyone who loves Smoky Mountain history. The cabin is very well preserved and from the moment one approaches it, their mind travels back in time imagining what it must have been like to live there. The beautiful surroundings make it all the more special and on occasion a bear is... More

Very nice nostalgic homestead. Nice short 3/4 mile trail - however it says it's easy walk - it is when speaking of incline but it is very rocky. Can get in the water by the old small mill - bring towels etc.

If you like history or the days of old, this old home place is great to visit. Very interesting to show the grandkids.

Nice to be able to see the way how the early settlers of the Smokies lived during their time. Take your time and enjoy the cabin and barn and take a stroll along the trail. Not sure if we followed the trail, as our hiking book stated it was an easy hike, but back by the springhouse, we were rock... More

Stopped with our 5 year old and 2 year old before hitting the Roaring Fork motor trail. Spent a few minutes going through the cabin and then the barn before taking the three fourths of a mile nature trail that loops behind the property. The length and difficulty of this trail was just right for our little ones. It did... More

A group of us went to see this cabin and all ages enjoyed it. Maybe to the kids it was just another house, but it was still fun for them to explore. For us adults who like to imagine what it was like to live there 100 years ago it is fascinating. The house is set back in a field,... More

This is a fun place to stop and check out how the original settlers lived back in the cove. There is usually a volunteer in the cabin the can tell you about the history of the cabin.

This was our family's first nature trail on our vacation to the Smokeys. I loved it. My 5 kids ranging from 9 years old -22 seemed to also have fun. Being on a trail in the Smokies is very different than looking at the forest. The quiet cool peaceful serenity and sounds of rushing water are a stark contrast from... More

Noah “Bud” Ogle and his wife Cindy first settled in what is now Gatlinburg in 1879. On their 400 acre farm they built the cabin that still stands near downtown Gatlinburg. Located on Airport Road near the start of the Roaring Fork .This visit will transport you to those days where earlier settlers struggled ,survived and prospered

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!
