I love this little nook in Gatlinburg. It's right off the main strip, but it's so quiet and peaceful. My family and I were walking around Gatlinburg and stumbled into this little village. I love the smells of the Pancake Pantry and the candy shops (you can watch them make the candy) and the candle shops, as well. Also love the red telephone booth, makes you feel like you're in Europe somewhere. This is such a cute little village, and we'll definitely be back next time we visit Gatlinburg!! And this time, I'll try a doughnut at the coffee/doughnut shop because they smelled DELICIOUS!!

Although the shops are right off of the main parkway and hustle of other shops/attractions, you'll feel much more peaceful here. A nice place to sit and enjoy a cold drink near the flaming fountain.

This shopping spot in downtown Gatlinburg does have a wonderful "village" feel to it. It also has some of the better shops in it. Nestled around a relaxing fountain, you will find a little bit of everything. I especially like that Alewine Pottery has opened a shop here. You can get a taste of what they have here, and then drive out to the Crafts area on Glade Rd. where you will find their larger store and more items. Art, clothing, candles, treats, and more in this quaint shopping area.

I love The Village in Gatlinburg, TN! The shops are quaint & the atmosphere is charming! My favorite thing to do is get coffee & a doughnut from The Doughnut Friar, and relax by the beautiful fountain! A beautiful, relaxing, peaceful, cozy setting! I love shopping here, having a snack, and just simply walking through it and enjoying the scenery!

I try and visit The Village on every trip to the Gatlinburg, sometimes to have a great breakfast at Pancake Pantry, other times to simply browse the many shops and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that is decorated beautifully for every season. I can't wait to return to The Village!
