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.

Awesome place. So much history in the homesteads and Churches that has been moved into Cades Cove. Also the wildlife is amazing. You never know what animals you'll see. HIGHLY recommended visiting.

Townsend, since cades cove is a state park, there are no motels. Townsend has some great motels, also beautiful cabins, and some fun campgrounds.
