Cades Cove is beautiful all year long but this time of year it’s especially beautiful!!! There’s a big chance you will see Deer or some other type of wildlife. Dress warm, it is COLD!!! And wait for the sunset, you won’t want to miss it

Nice , Clean, Historical. They have a "home" on the place from the 1930's that was a typical box car where my husband was born at Tremont just up the road. The history of the Cove is very good.

We found this museum online as a nearby activity while on our anniversary trip to Knoxville Tennessee. The museum attendees were very knowledgeable about the Cades Cove history and they were very passionate about their history.
