The Old Mill Square is something of a landmark in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and it is within walking distance of your Cherokee Lodge condo rental. The area offers dozens of different activities and attractions. Whether you visit Pigeon Forge with small children or on a romantic vacation with your significant other, you can still find something that captures your attention.

Visiting The Old Mill Square gives you the chance to step back in time. The area has its own bakery that still grinds its own flour in the same way it has for years. The mill uses French Buhrs granite pills that use a water wheel for power. Watch the mills grinding flour and cornmeal before you enjoy one of the delicious desserts or breads served on-site.

The Old Mill Restaurant is another site you might enjoy. The restaurant provides the same down-home Southern comfort foods that locals enjoyed for generations. If you find a dish that you especially love, stop by The Old Mill Farmhouse Kitchen. This shop sells hundreds of different specialty foods, including jams, jellies, sauces and mixes. Take home a little bit of the South when you head home and treat your family to a home-cooked meal that uses some of the products you bring back.

You can even spend a few hours browsing through the shops in the area. The Old Mill Pigeon River Pottery shop sells handmade pottery crafted by artisans working in and around Pigeon Forge. Search for a unique gift for a loved one or find the perfect souvenir of your trip.

The Cherokee Lodge condos give you access to fabulously furnished condo rentals. When you rent one of the properties for yourself, you need to know about nearby attractions. You cannot expect to spend all day every day sitting inside your body, but luckily you are only a few minutes away from The Old Mill Square.
