“A quiet place in a busy town...”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

I almost hesitate to write a review, because I don't want the place to become too crowded. I think most people walk by the entrance and don't think much of it. But it's just what it says...a little village. There are a ton of neat shops in there. Including my favorite in the whole town, the Day Hiker. But it is mine & my wife's favorite place to just sit and relax. Grab a donut & coffee at the Donut Friar and sit by the fountain. Love it, we go there numerous times on every trip to Gatlinburg.

“Awesome village, very unique”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

A serene little village of shops. Very relaxing atmosphere. a place to spend a few hours browsing through the shops or just sit and people watch. Doesn't cost a thing unless you want it to.

“Best Time in Gatlinburg”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

Great city to relax and refresh for a few days. Get a hotel in the midlle or close by downtown so can walk to places. They have a lot of shops and restaurants. The city is very pretty you will not disappointed. Cade Coves only half an hour drive from downtown Gatlinburg...along the way to the Coves....the scenic is very beautiful.

“Small village of shops”
Reviewed 27 August 2011

speciality shops with some unique things. There are restrooms nestled in the center of the village. There are areas to sit, eat and people watch. The fountains are pretty. Beware of the timeshare salesmen as you enter the village from the parkway side.
