The pioneering spirit of our ancestors inspired a patriotic theme for this room. Boasting a beautifully hand-carved wooden king size bed with a cloud-like pillow top king mattress you are surely to feel like a royal. Cades Cove has its own private bathroom with a standard shower/tub combination and the bathroom even has its own patriotic touches that make it special. Giving you the spirit of 1776! This room is perfect for a veteran, an active military man/women or even a parent with a military son/daughter that wishes to enjoy being surrounded in an American theme. You can enjoy your favorite show on the TV from the comfortable bed or while resting in one of the two wing back chairs while still in the comfort of your own room. If you are the working type you can surely rest and work in this room, plug up your computer and enjoy the WIFI capability. Cades Cove decor is another way we can show our appreciation for our many solders in America throughout the years!
Cades Cove Highlights: wildlife viewing, historic buildings, bicycling
Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by the mountains and is the most popular section of Smoky Mountain National Park. It is where some of the homes and churches of the mountain people were left intact when the park was established. An 11-mile, one-way loop takes you through this picturesque valley. It offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park. Large numbers of white-tailed deer are frequently seen, and sightings of black bear, coyote, ground hog, turkey, raccoon, skunk, and other animals are also possible. A visitor center (open daily), restrooms, and the Cable Mill historic area are located half-way around the loop road.
Numerous trails originate in the cove, including the five-mile roundtrip trail to Abrams Falls and the short Cades Cove Nature Trail. Longer hikes to Thunderhead Mountain and Rocky Top also begin in the cove. Several designated backcountry campsites are located along trails. Only bicycle and foot traffic are allowed on the loop road until 10:00 a.m. every Saturday and Wednesday morning from early May until late September. Otherwise the road is open to motor vehicles from sunrise until sunset daily, weather permitting.
