Enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains with the best view in Gatlinburg.
Relax and Unwind
Enjoy the views
Camp up around our fire pit, kick back in a rocking chair, enjoy a cold beer or ice cream cone on our patio; however you choose to relax at the top of Anakeesta Mountain there are panoramic mountain views to enjoy and fresh mountain air to breath in.
THE BEST VIEW OF THE SMOKIES
It’s a breathtaking view from the summit of Anakeesta. Discover the panoramic overlook of the Mt. LeConte Range hidden just above the City. Sit back and unwind at Firefly Village as you watch the mist roll out of the mountains in the early hours of the day. Then, find your favorite spot to watch the sunset over the Great Smoky Mountains and enjoy the twinkling lights of Gatlinburg come alive below.
FOREST MEMORIAL INTERPRETIVE TRAIL
On November 28, 2016, more than 15,000 acres of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the city of Gatlinburg were damaged by the most devastating fire in the state’s history. The south side of Anakeesta Mountain which was badly scorched is a fitting location for our Forest Memorial Interpretive Trail.
Stroll through the charred forest that serves as a reminder of the courage of the brave men and women who fought the fires, the fortitude of those affected and the resilience and restoration of our beloved Smoky Mountains and the city of Gatlinburg that truly are ‘mountain tough.’
The Best Selfie Spot in Gatlinburg
Photos with friends are the memories we cherish. At Anakeesta you will find the best spot for a selfie with a backdrop of the majestic Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Nestled 600′ above the heart of downtown Gatlinburg it is hard to find a bad spot for a selfie! Stroll across the Firefly Village bridge, pose next to our Anakeesta bear or put your feet up at the firepit centrally located in Firefly Village. All you need to do is smile and snap.
