Set on a 4,200-acre farm, this high-end resort in the Great Smoky Mountains is 10 miles from Tuckaleechee Caverns and 15 miles from Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Green Frog Farm

15 Green Frog Ln, Alamo, TN 38001

(731) 663-3319

Green Frog Farm is a collection of lovingly restored historic structures surrounded by the natural beauty of Tennessee farm country.

The Bells Garden Club established an arboretum (a botanical garden devoted to trees) at Green Frog, which now features almost 200 different tree species, labelled with their common and scientific names.

The magnificent variety of trees features many natives and is a wonderful compliment to the historic structures.

At Green Frog Farm you take a self-guided Cotton Museum tour of the historic buildings by checking in at Anita's Designs or TN-Q BBQ.

Rates are $6 per person, $3 for children under 12.

Still Waters Farm

375 Oak Grove Ln, Henderson, TN 38340

(731) 989-4251

The Cottage is a 1000-square ft. free-standing guest cottage, complete with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, fully-appointed kitchen, and outdoor lounging area, located only 2 miles outside the Henderson city limits, at the edge of the 153-acre Stillwater Farm.

This getaway lends itself to a bygone era--a time when life was slow and simple.

Horns and sirens, traffic and commerce, are a rarity around there.

Instead, guests are bathed in the comfort sounds of the country: a donkey's bray, a dog's bark, a horse's whinny or a cow's lowing.

Sometimes even the sheep get in on the act!

Butterfly gardens, when in bloom, are just off the outdoor lounging area, so guests can expect a visit from the local hummingbirds (in season), graceful butterflies, and bumbling bees in search of a load of pollen.

Songbirds, deer, and turkey inhabit the woods and meadows all around.

A good book and a cup of hot tea will round out a most enjoyable farm experience!

While some guests elect to be mere observers of the goings-on of the farm, others look to roll up their sleeves, don their work gloves, and jump right in to daily activities.

Either way, you will reap the benefits of taking time out to recharge your batteries.
