Standing Bear Farm
Hartford, Tennessee

Old shed spanning creek has become The Cabin


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".

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

For now we offer lodging in our rustic bunkhouse or cabin, tent camping, solar showers, phone, mail-drop, shuttle service and free fuel (denatured or camp).

Hosts Maria Guzman and Curtis Owen have combined their talents and resources to make 2002 Standing Bear Farm's first official season of operation. We are fortunate in that we are able to live and work here fulltime while sharing the beauty and serenity with others.We will soon offer more services such as resupply, and internet access.
