The Silo and Barn are non-smoking and pet free.  Due to the structure of the space we cannot accept children under 12 years.   Beyond a campground, The Silo is a unique experience. It boasts three curved staircases.  Four floors lead to a sleeping area that has a 360 degree view with windows that open to the tree tops. Wake up to birds chirping and the smell of mountain air.

The silo is truly a unique stay! The craftsmanship is just incredible!

Not too much of a view. Although we saw tons of fireflies in the wildflowers.

This stay is perfect for a couple!

We enjoyed having the unique experience of staying in a silo. Bob's conversion to a rental is very well done. It was amazing to see how it was engineered Is to be very safe. It is organized on 4 different levels with the kitchen being on the ground level next the bathroom, The 3rd level is the bedroom and the 4th level is the living area.

Our trip to the silo was short but it was fantastic! We didn’t do much more than sleep there for two nights. The silo is well built and makes sense. Everything we needed was there and the host was great. As soon as we booked, instructions were given and they were accurate when we arrived late to the silo on our first night. On our second night, the host sent a quick message about it being cold that night and he was going to do a quick swap on the propane so we were warm throughout the night. It was such a unique and great experience! 10/10 would do it again.

Kitchen was functional and sufficient. Bedroom was superb. Beautiful venue!

Wow, what an amazing experience staying in such a unique place to spend time with my BFF. Everything was just as described and we truly had the best time! Absolutely would stay again if in the area. The bed was so cozy after a long day of exploring the Smoky Mountains National Park. We had a campfire each evening and made delicious sandwiches in my friends pie iron. Also enjoyed the sunset from the top floor. Don’t pass this one up, you’ll love it!

The silo was incredible. Truly a one of a kind stay with a great location. Very clean with everything you could ask for. The only negative is that the bedroom can get toasty on a summer night.

The Silo is amazing!!! Bob has done an amazing job making this space into something truly unique! It can get a little toasty on the floors that don't have the AC units but we managed just fine! Would 100% recommend! Location was perfect as well. Smokies and Cades cove very close!

What a wonderful stay! The silo is attached to a wooden barn and has a strict no smoking policy due to all the beautiful wood surrounding you. It is even better than the pictures! Bob’s attention to detail makes his craftsmanship stand out. His thoughtfulness shows in every corner. Great romantic getaway.
