After a disappointing venture to explore Cade's Cove, we stumbled on this WONDERFUL spot. Strong winds had closed every entry into the park, so we were rambling and sick of the tourist traps. THIS IS NOT A TOURIST TRAP! There's not even a tshirt to...More

The waterfall is gorgeous!! We went to mine for gems which was a lot of fun! The menu is pretty limited, but the view is worth sacrificing more menu items. We were a little disappointed with finding a plastic army guy in our mining bucket,...More

After a long and very crowded day of shopping at the outlet stores, we found this place to "get away" from the crowds searching on Tripadvisor. We absolutely fell in love with this beautiful place. It was exactly as described. A wonderful place to get...More

For sure stop here on your way to or from Townsend to Pigeon Forge. Super cute atmosphere. Small and quaint. We had ice cream and enjoyed the view of the fantastic cute waterfall. We also enjoyed strolling through their garden and spotting all the gnomes....More

When you get tired of the noise, crowds and endless tourist attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, then it's time to drive to a more peaceful place. This little shop and snack shack is a great place to go. The falls are pleasant, the surroundings...More

We sure do. Our local smoked trout plate is gluten free if you skip the crackers. Any of our sandwiches if you leave the bread. Our Friendly Fall-Chos are our take on nachos. They would work too. Hope to see you soon... More
We first saw your place when we stayed at the old log cabin next door a couple of years back. You were actually still working on it. We've been wanting to try it out. Coming week of June 1 to gatlinburg. I been reading reviews and wondered why you stopped serving burgers? Reviewers seem disappointed -- no burgers

Hi there, How cool you got to share beautiful Cove Creek with us. You won't believe the changes here when you come back. As far as burgers, there are many reasons. First among them is that we only have 300 sqft in our... More

Great Food, Cold Drinks, a Relaxing Garden & a Waterfall! This is a great find in the Smoky Mountains. Only 4.5 Miles from Pigeon Forge on Wears Valley Rd but your a world away. Order inside our restaurant and store and enjoy on the covered/heated deck overlooking our waterfall or in our garden. The kids we'll LOVE our creekside Gem Mine. You can even get married, hold a family reunion or book a private dinner at our Waterfall! Hours change seasonally and we are closed for the months of January and February.
