As of this writing, Cades Cove is open for it’s last day until March of 2020. Couples who are hoping to plan a Cade Cave Wedding in January or February of 2020 will need to make other plans and Sampson’s Hollow has always been an excellent alternative to a wedding in Cades Cove. Located at the foot of the Cades Cove area, Sampson’s Farm is an outdoor, premier farm venue in the Townsend, Walland area of the Smokies. Couple’s from around the world, have chosen Sampson’s Hollow as their storybook wedding location for over 10 years, due to our romantic settings, our century farm history, our expansive views, and our incredible wedding planners and staff.
Sampson’s Hollow offers many all inclusive wedding and elopement packages, at our century farm located next to Blackberry Farm and at the base of Cades Cove. Although our elopement ceremonies can only be booked for weekdays or weeknight afternoons during peak season, especially during January and February, we likely can accommodate a last minute decision to have a wedding in the Smokies. Sampson’s Hollow is not a wedding chapel. We are an outdoor farm venue with all inclusive wedding packages, however, we welcome your phone call for your last minute romantic getaway wedding to the Smoky Mountains.

Once you have decided to visit our area, find these awesome locations near us that are part of the National Park and the Smoky Mountain Area. Although Cades Cove is special, and there is no replacement for Cades Cove, we can recommend these areas for your Smoky Mountain honeymoon and highly recommend you discover one or two of them!
A portion of the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina leads to Max Patch, a 4,600-foot bald mountain top with views of the Smokies. Campers get a front-row seat for incredible views of the stars. This would be an awesome and romantic discovery for the two of you.
Metcalf Bottoms located along the Little River Gorge is a very easy hike that offers plenty of sites and a picnic area. The Little Greenbriar school located there was built in 1882 and is open for tours. This is an under rated area of the Smokies. As part of the National Park, expect picnicking, shot treks, and time by the river.
A paved 1.3 mile trail leads to an 80-foot waterfall which is named after the Laurel flowers that bloom along the trail. Hikers can access the moderately difficult trailhead from the Sugarlands Visitor Center in Gatlinburg.
