Under Canvas Great Smoky Mountains

This Hotel is seasonal and welcomes guests from April to December.
 

A magically misty forest hideaway in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains

Set beneath ancient mountains on 182 acres of lush woodland lies a retreat that blends seamlessly into its beautiful backdrop. Under Canvas Great Smoky Mountains, named a top resort in Conde Nast Traveller's 2023 Readers' Choice Awards, offers more than just glamping – it’s an invitation to immerse in the landscape. To uncover the secrets of the forested valleys and get back to nature in ultimate comfort.

The camp’s safari-inspired tents come equipped with everything you need for a cosy and comfortable getaway – with little extras included to make your stay even more special. But campfire treats and bottomless coffee are just the start – tent options include the Stargazer Tent, with a night-sky-viewing window above a comfortable king-sized bed, or a Suite Tent with lounge area and pull-out sofa bed. Lounge by your tent’s wood-burning stove in the cooler months, and there’s even the choice of an extra tent for the kids if they (or you) want your own space.

From your base near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you’re perfectly situated to explore its rugged mountains via 800 miles of pristine – and often less explored - hiking trails, through gulches and gully’s and some ending in dramatic waterfalls. Take a thrilling raft trip down the rapids of the Pigeon River or explore Appalachia on a guided driving tour. Roam the land of black bears and elk deer, and watch as the trees come alive with fireflies. Whatever pace your adventures take, you’ll arrive back at camp refreshed, re-energised and ready to tuck into a deliciously wholesome hot supper, complete with your choice of locally crafted beers and specialty cocktails.

Enjoy your stay!

What to expect

Under Canvas properties offer amazing experiences near some of North America’s most iconic national parks. Because they’re in such special places, some of their services and facilities are a little different from those in other resorts. 

Water is a precious resource in all Under Canvas locations, so showers are pull chain to limit water use. Tents have USB battery packs provided for essentials like lanterns, fans, and phone charging. That means no plug sockets or hairdryers, so you can fully embrace the outdoors. 

Swap screens for starry skies, with no WiFi, cell phone service or TVs in Under Canvas properties. Evening entertainment comes in the form of fires, s’mores and lots of smiles.

Housekeeping is on request. And while there’s no room service, or in-room coffee or fridges, complimentary coffee, tea, afternoon fruit and botanical-infused water will keep you refreshed and energised for all your adventures.
