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 all of this seems too much for one day, then stay the night. Cumberland Gap has two places to stay, Hotel Cumberland Gap and the Olde Mill Bed and Breakfast. 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.
