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.

Took my family with three children under 7 and had a great time. I highly recommend to burn an hour or so. Couple of things: 1) parking is limited so try and arrive by 9 am 2) spend 50 cents for a brochure that takes you on a self guided tour of the place 3) take the nature loop (only... More

A leisurely hike offers plentiful rewards. A quick walk takes you to the log cabin and barn. It is amazing to see the craftsmanship of early settlers. The hinges and door latches are all made of wood! Follow the path toward the sound of gurgling water to see the historic mill amongst the gorgeous rocky river. Maybe a 5 minute... More

I loved walking in the little cute cabin right in the middle of fast paced gatlinburg. Its amazing seeing how much gatlinburg has changed and grown from the time of Mr Ogle and his family. A nice History piece and you wont regret taking the time to walk through the house on your way walking though gatlinburg:)

We stopped through as we were exploring and it was very different, pretty cool and free. Just go through and get to see some history, if your ever by it you should check it out.
