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 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. There is an indoor shower and a modest kitchen area. Who wants to cook when there is so much to do here! The Silo is very convenient to the Great Smoky Mountains and to a Knoxville ball game. If you choose to bicycle, the road is open to Cades Cove and horse stables. For motorcyclist, the "Tail of the Dragon" is only 20 minutes by way of the Foothills Parkway. Rivers and lakes and hiking trails galore. Come stay with us.

Beyond any expectation we could have even dreamed! One of THE coolest place we've ever been able to step foot into. This place is one of a kind. And to make things even better - you are at the base of the Smoky Mountains. A 15 minute ride into the entrance of the Smokies! Bob, was super friendly upon our arrival. He built this 4 story silo in a year and half - WOW! Local art is throughout the silo to purchase too. We will be back!

There's even two cots upstairs to put together! So the light can wake you up in the morning - if you wish. Josh stepping out into the fresh mountain air - the entrance. 4 story curved stairs - handmade & beautiful.Everything you could potentially need in a tiny kitchen. Plates, silverware, toaster, coffee maker, etc.

The silo was the cutest place I've ever stayed! Definitely recommended and would go back in a heartbeat. One of the nights it got pretty cold at night (it was November after all, so not unexpected) and it was pretty chilly in the morning, but nothing unbearable, just something to be aware of. Otherwise it was totally comfortable! Really love the style Bob has going with it!

The Silo exceeded all expectations! It was gorgeous, well kept, cozy, unique and overall magical! We wished we could stay more nights. I saw fireflies for the first time looking out the window and was brought straight to tears. We loved every second.

If you're traveling along the west side of Great Smoky Mountain National Park or if, like us, you've just come out from a long backcountry stint and you're looking for a place to recharge -- look no further! The Silo was luxurious, clean, charming, with dreamlike serenity. I'll probably never see another place like it.

Beautiful, cozy bed on a custom-made Murphy frame.Those stairs, A+Evening's greetings; handmade light sculpture and a painting of the mountains just down the road.Bathroom; admiring the decor.

The Silo at Little River Barn is AMAZING! My boyfriend and I will definitely be back. We enjoyed the afternoons reading and sipping bourbon on the top level listening to the rain. The bed was extremely comfortable. As an Airbnb host, I give it a definite thumbs up. Extremely romantic setting. Loved it!

The pictures don't (and can't) do this place justice. Bob's vision for the property was extraordinary and was matched by his meticulous execution. My kids and I were passing through the area and I was looking for a different and fun place to stay instead of a traditional hotel. This listing perfectly fit the bill. I had no idea, however, how incredible the Silo actually was until seeing it in person. The attention to every detail is amazing. From re-purposing old wood from the adjoining barn, elegant lighting, working air conditioning, a surprisingly comfortable bed, and a coffee station, to the beautiful craftsmanship throughout. This is probably the coolest place I've ever stayed and I certainly hope to return for a longer stay.
