Hidden gem on top of the world
Our stay at Old Mountain Home & Forest was an absolute pleasure. Oenita's 77 acre property sits on the top of a mountain with a 360-degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains. No matter where you pitch your tent, you are guaranteed a magical view at sunrise or sunset. To make this location even more memorable, Oenita (the host) gave us the best type of southern comfort making us feel right at home.
