We have a perfect location in the heart of town so that you can actually walk to several fun destinations, as well as great places to shop and dine!

1. The Old Mill Complex

One of the most popular destinations in Pigeon Forge is the Old Mill complex, where you will find several unique specialty shops, the Old Forge Distillery and the famous Old Mill Restaurant! This is also a historic attraction as the buildings are constructed around a working grist mill that dates back to 1830. In fact, the Old Mill is one of the oldest continually operating grist mills in the country and one of the most photographed mills in America! After enjoying a delicious meal at the Old Mill Restaurant, take the time to browse through some of the shops such as the Old Mill General Store, Old Mill Farmhouse Kitchen, Pigeon River Pottery and Sassafras.
