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.

Picnic tables and lawn chairs are available at the campsites on top of the hill. Stacks of firewood ready for you to burn a campfire. The horses can be seen down the hill from where you can pitch your tent. Pitch a tent anywhere you'd like right here. A 360-degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains.

I enjoyed you guys ever so much! Oh, my goats were pregnant after all. We have a precious little baby, named PeeDab. More to come. :) I look forward to having you guys visit again. I hope y’all can stay longer. My puppy misses your puppies. I hope your trip home was great and all good things come your way.
