We rented the cabin for an hour and a half for $50. We had a funky victorian/steampunk wedding. It was absolutely amazing! Beautiful setting, very peaceful, and truly historic and romantic! We were married on the back porch and it was perfect! I would recommend going and seeing it, not only bc its beautiful, but you can really hear the... More

Great cabin/barn off the road to the Roaring Fork Motor Trail; this cabin gives a sense of the hard life farmers endured in this region in the 19th century.

The buildings are well preserved. Nothing is in them, but they are very photogenic. Only a short walk is needed from the parking lot to get to the buildings.

Short, peaceful and beautiful hike, mostly along a creek. Very easy and worth the hike. You just have to be careful of the rocks and tree roots. That's really the only downside to it.

Loved the original homestead. Neat historical buildings. A hiking trail fairly easy but you need to be able to navigate uneven ground. Water crosses the trail in several spots.

This was our first stop entering into the park. We took our dog with us and she had a really good time. It was nice to read the pamphlet and learn something new along the way. Definitely hard to imagine seeing the landscape the way it was before to how it is now.

The house is similar to all of them in the Smokies. Interesting and educational. The real treat here is the trail back to the mill. It's probably about a mile round trip. The walk is very peaceful and by the creek, it's beautiful. I've spent hours wadding in the stream with my daughter, through the years, throwing rocks and building... More

Loved it. It was amazing to see the older houses. Definitely nice. Would definitely come back again. Except go early so you can get pictures without people in them.

You can check out the cabin and take a short walk on the trail. It takes you back to where the family mill was. It's a nice walk, pretty easy. This place is worth the stop.
