The mist that rises from the peaks covers some great Smoky
Mountain luxury resorts and cabins that stand apart. We found the top vacation opportunities on a recent
search of the most popular National Park in the United States.
Treehouse Grove has the distinction of having the nearest and most direct access to Smoky Mountains National park. Comprising Eight treehouses, this resort offers the best nature has to offer right at your doorstep. You might have caught a glimpse of “Treehouse Master” Pete Nelson on one of a handful of TV shows featuring treehouses. If you have, chances are you also came across Treehouse Grove as well.
The resort location you are situated 6.6 km from Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and about the same distance to Gatlinburg. Which makes it an ideal destination to explore both worlds.
The cabins themselves are what you would expect in non tree bound structures. You will find a TV, a coffee/tea maker, In-room dining and a kitchen containing a refrigerator and a microwave.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the busiest in the country and occupies parts of Tennessee and North Carolina. It's not any wonder that you are interested in visiting here, as it really is an accessible and easy way to get back to nature and change the pace for a little while. While the park itself follows the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there are more than a few good resorts and cabins in this part of the Appalachian Mountains with access to these magnificent high mountains.
