“Handmade Gifts”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

This is a must do if you are visiting the area. The Arts and Crafts Loop is awesome. There are tons of artist, craftsmen, potters, and the list goes on. Great handmade crafts. There are wood, glass, and pottery crafts made by the locals. I absolutely love this area. This is the best area for shopping if you want high quality gifts from the mountains.

“Nice area out of Town”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I absolutely love it in this area. So many crafts and pottery and a nice coffee shop. if you are ever in this area, do yourself a favor and stop by. It is a nice place to go to get out of the hustle and bustle of the strip.

“The real Gatlinburg!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If visiting Gatlinburg, you have to drive around the Arts and Crafts Loop!! Tons of neat artists, unique crafts, love the pottery shops in particular. A gift from here will be much more appreciated than the airbrushed t-shirt sold downtown Gatlinburg.

“Great way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

I come to this area a couple times a year, but this was my first time to visit the Arts and Crafts community. You can easily spend a day or at least an afternoon driving the eight mile arts and crafts loop and visiting all of the artists and their shops. There is something along this trail for anyone even remotely interested in the arts.
