One of the lesser know places in the Smoky Mountains. A spur trail from Jakes Creek in Elkmont leads to the Advent Place. No signs tell of this place. I met a couple of Knoxville women here who had a internet printout of the place. I forget the womans name but apparently she was a painter and had the house built so she could do paintings. With Jakes creek cascades below it and beautiful Mountain Laurel blooming behind, I have would have no trouble taking up residence here!
