WELCOME TO standing bear farm hostel

 In the heart of the Smoky Mountains surrounded by Cherokee National Forest lies Standing Bear Farm, a turn of the century multi-generational farmstead including the original homestead, barns, outbuildings and farmhouse. The outbuildings have now been converted to a bunkhouse and cabin where we offer rustic lodging to hikers and others interested in stepping back from today's hectic lifestyle to a time in America's past when life in rural backcountry Appalachia was considered the "good life". 

Resupply available with pizzas and other items for cooking on-site as well as trailfood items for the hike ahead.

A great place to stop while hiking the Appalachian Trail


Standing Bear Farm is three miles North of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park,two hundred yards off of the Appalachian Trail.
