Welcome to our Smoky Mountain Den! Hummingbird Holler is a fully furnished private apartment in a beautiful mountain setting. Wildlife is nearby, sometimes just outside the window. You'll enjoy peaceful surroundings & a quaint and comfy getaway here.
Our newly built apartment has all of the comforts of home, including a full size-bed (a double), a kitchen, bathroom, an electric fireplace and a private screened in porch. There is a TV with DVDs to watch, but no cable or local stations are available. Our sleepy neighborhood is nestled in Wears valley. You will be refreshed by our misty mornings and our big starry skies. After a fun day of adventure or a quiet day of rest, you can sit around the outdoor fire pit and listen to the crickets chirp. Smores are encouraged!
We live above you on the second and third levels of the home. The apartment is on the first level. You will have a combo lock for the doors and there is covered parking available. The fire pit is shared with us and possibly other travelers, but the apartment and its screened in space are all yours. There are no crazy elevation changes or steep hills on the drive in. Also, there are no elevation changes on foot to your room (no stairs to negotiate).
Interaction with guests
We will give you all the privacy you would like, but of course we are available to answer questions, guide your adventures, give driving directions or whatever else you need. We will let you in on some local secrets, including an entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park, shortcuts and fun attractions.
Other things to note
The nearest airport is in Knoxville and is about a 45 minute drive. We are located near bustling Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge if you are looking for some city action. We are five minutes from the little known North entrance to the Smoky Mountain National Park that brings you to the Metcalf Bottoms picnic area. A "T" at the end of the picnic area will take you to either Gatlinburg, "The Sinks Waterfalls, Cades Cove, or Townsend, TN. Although we don't have cable tv or internet, there is a General Store up the street with free Wi-Fi if you need to check business, ESPN, email or social media.
We are fun-friendly folks. We ask that you respect our home and treat it just as you would your own. Please, no pets or smoking or extra people (including infants or children). Since we are right by the forest, we cannot leave food outside because it attracts wildlife. Please don't feed the bears.

After living 29 years in beautiful south Florida, my husband (Bob) and I have established a new residence in the hills of Tennessee.
Life has a much slower pace. We enjoy sitting on the front porch looking at the beautiful Smoky Mountain range and watching the clouds roll by.
We have settled in the Wears Valley area where our home is peaceful yet in minutes we can engage in the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge.
Bob is an engineer and musician who loves to build (he built our home ). I enjoy volunteering, socializing and star gazing.
