Dandridge Historic District

The National Register Historic District is the core of the town founded in the 1780s. Four Taverns, or ordinaries, still exist and are currently in use--one of which is the Town Hall. Located on the shore of Douglas Lake, Dandridge is two miles from I-40, Exit 417, and is nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. We are 30 minutes from Knoxville, slightly over an hour from Asheville NC, and about 30 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

This is a great small town with friendly people and beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Great place for cabin rentals and pontoon rentals. You can keep your family active all day outside. About an hour and half to most trail heads in the Great Smoky Mountains. Very close to Dollywood for a day trip.
