Welcome to Cumberland Gap, TN
Eat, Shop, and Stay In Historic Town of Cumberland Gap
The Historic Town of Cumberland Gap is nestled at
the foot of Cumberland Mountains inside Cumberland Gap National
Historical Park. Breathtaking beauty and charming "Mayberry"
atmosphere will greet you as you come into town.
First known as the "Gateway to the West", then as the strong hold during the Civil War, Cumberland Gap is now known for everything from its specialty shops to the National Historical Park. Located approximately an hour north of Knoxville, Cumberland Gap is a great place to spend the day, or even spend a weekend.
Within a three block area of downtown there is a
variety of attractions, stores, restaurants, and inns. In
addition to the natural beauty of the area, some of the local
attractions include the Iron Furnace, the Bicycle Museum, the
Wedding Chapel, and walking trails, too numerous to mention.
If shopping interest you, then you may enjoy Nothin's Perfect Craft Store, Whistle Stop Antiques, The Frame Shop & Art Gallery, The Cumberland Gap General Store, or even a visit the Old Drug Store for a milkshake at the turn of the century Soda Fountain. If you are in the mood for something more filling be sure to visit Webb's County Kitchen, for a meal you are not soon to forget. If all of this seems too much for one day, then stay the night. Cumberland Gap has three Inns available, including the Cumberland Gap Inn, the Olde Mill Bed and Breakfast, and Cumberland Gap Log Cabin Rentals.
For a unique getaway that will be enjoyed by all, plan a visit to the historic Town of Cumberland Gap. Experience the best of yesterday and today as you walk in the steps of your ancestors, and recall the past as well as create memories that will last well into the future.
The Town of Cumberland Gap certainly has something for everyone. Whether you come for the day or for the weekend, I can’t think of a more perfect place to stay.
