We walked up and down the strip of stores for 2 days and they were all the same except for these. They were clean, friendly, unique and not over priced. It even had a really nice courtyard in the middle and a more secluded spot by the celtic store. The candle cottage was great with candles made locally and some... More

My wife and I really enjoyed going thru and shopping at the shops in the Village. Very unique items and decent pricing. Would be nicer if the shops offered military discounts.

The place is set up so perfect and it is beautifully landscaped. The shops were wonderful and there was a nice place to take a break around the fountain.

As a family, we always have stayed within one block of The Village when in Gatlinburg. We walk thru it on our way to the strip and back thru it again on our way back to the motel. We have witnessed many changes in our years of walking those brick pathways. One of the most disapointing changes was when Sweethearts... More

I love this little hideaway of shops right in the middle of Gatlinburg. It's very tranquil with a beautiful fountain and great shops. My favorite is the donut shop, so good!!

Prices at most of the shops are too high, but it's very cute to walk through! My daughter liked the fountains and the ducks.

We loved the shops so much on our trip that we decided to stop by twice! So many small unique places to go. I suggest to visit the Donut Friar shop and buy some of their famous Cinnamon bread! They sell out by noon every day. Most of the shops open by 10AM. Interesting place to walk around!
