This place smells weird. The staff never acknowledged us. A quick in and back out. They were complaining about something going on in town and didn't even step to the side when we tried to walk around them.

What a travel back in time. A must see if in the area. If you do the hiking to the Falls bring water and be healthy it is quite a trek, but certainly worth it.

Wonderful morning hike here. Not a strenuous hike, but beautiful scenery and history. Purchase a flier before you hike and see the grounds - the National Park Service has put together a nice summary of the homestead. We visited with one of the Ogle grandchildren who was sketching the cabin while we were there. The streams and nature is breathtaking!!

It was easy to find since we stayed on Historic Nature Trail Road. Not much to see here. It's a good place to stop and relax in the shade after hiking Rainbow Falls trail but otherwise not worth the time.

Great little piece of history. Our kids were baffled at how 10 people lived in this tiny cabin. This log cabin was right off of a parking area along the beginning of the Roaring Fork Nature Motor Trail. Easy to get to and great little nature trails to run along. It was however very rocky and not easy to push... More

Early settlers amaze me as to the hardships they had to endure. The Ogle Log Cabin is a case in point of the living conditions of these settlers. Make sure you take your children to see this and let them compare it to their current living conditions.

We like to drive the Roaring Fork Motor Trail when we visit. It's fun to stop and see the old houses and barns that have been there for so long. It's a great way to show kids how people used to live. A must for a Gatlinburg vacation.

Although it has been moved from its original location you can tour this little beauty and get a feel for what it was like for families in the mountains many years ago. The simplicity they live astonishes me and makes me yearn to have lived in those simple life days.
