We have been to Parrot Mountain many times. We especially love the interactions with the birds. Being able to feed, take and hold them is a treat. The nursery is always enjoyable. Such cute baby birds. Parrot Mountain is great for all ages. Would highly recommend a trip. Located on the way to Dollywood. Wear comfortable shoes and bring quarters... More

I have visited Parrot Mountain twice and loved it each time. I have been with my husband and also my bestie on a weekend getaway. She loved it as well. I love the interaction with the birds and how well the place is maintained. The garden areas are great as well as the baby bird room. Looking forward to returning... More

My husband and I found Parrot Mountain by accident shortly after they opened. It was a serendipitous discovery. We were delighted by how well things were done here. No cheesy-ness could be found. Birds are displayed with educational tidbits and there are wonderful opportunities to interact with them. Even if you're not a "bird person," the beauty of the gardens... More

Great experience for all ages!!! Be sure to purchase the extra nectar to hand feed the birds and be sure to take your camera for some great colorful photos.

One of my favorite places to visit! The birds are beautiful! I have been here several times, and really enjoyed it. They have an open area where you can feed the birds, which I highly recommend. It's .25 cents for a handful of food. If your lucky, one will hop on your shoulder!

I am a bird lover and owner. This place is where you want to go. It amazes me how the birds are sitting on perches as you go up from the parking lot to pay. The hands on experience with the birds is a wonderful thing to do. It is so much fun. The nursery was the highlight of my... More

The birds were beautiful, but we were not expecting the high price. Definitely not the place for someone who has trouble walking as there are lots of hills to walk. It was a one time stop for us.

My husband was really excited to visit Parrot Mtn and I was a little less sure. Our visit was fun, but pricy for the experience. You get to get close up with the birds (which again, he was all about and I was not!), and there are some beautiful animals, but overall it was a bit underwhelming. If you love... More
