Below is a list of unique Gatlinburg shops that you’ll love. Add these to your list for the next time you visit Gatlinburg!


The Village Shops 

If you’re looking for not one, not two, but 27 unique boutiques, eateries and galleries the Village Shops has it all. We really believe you could spend an entire day at The Village Shops whether you’re looking for something specific or just browsing the windows. The uniqueness of the stores is truly something you will can’t experience anywhere else. A few of our favorite shops are: 


  • Life is Good
  • Zi Olive
  • The Candle Cottage
  • Pepper Palace
  • Best Gift Idea Ever


Gatlinburg Mountain Mall

The Gatlinburg Mountain Mall is another place full of shops in Gatlinburg, Tennessee where you could spend an entire day shopping. Unlike the Village Shops, the Gatlinburg Mountain Mall is all inside and also has a unique atmosphere. The indoor mall features a variety of 36 unique shops for you to shop and browse through. Our favorites are: 

  • Creative Spirit Crafts
  • The Scented Willow
  • Wild Dimensions 


Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community

Another unique shopping experience that you can’t get anywhere else is the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community in Gatlinburg. It features the work of over 100 artists and craftsmen! Shoppers will be able to browse or buy creations of carvers, watercolor artists, soap makers, potters, and other skilled craftsmen. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch the artists in action creating their work!


After a day full of shopping, head back to your Alpine Mountain Chalets cabin rental. Many of our cabin rentals are located very close to these unique shops so it’s the perfect distance, even if you need to run home to drop a few bags off in between!
