Welcome to English Mountain, TN


The Smokies (including English Mountain) were roamed by the Cherokee for centuries before European settlers (including many Welsh, Irish, and Scots as well as, one presumes, Mr. and Mrs. English) braved the early American frontier and began settling in East Tennessee in the late 1700’s. A cemetery at the foot of English Mountain dates back to 1787.

The abundant springs on the Mountain have attracted attention for many years. In fact, four of the mineral springs at one place on the top of the ridge became the focus of an elegant health spa from the 1880’s into the early 20th century. President Theodore Roosevelt maintained a suite of rooms at the Glen-Alpine Springs health resort to provide himself with a “Camp David” style retreat, helping him deal with the pressures of the presidency. Sadly, the old spa-hotel burned down in 1902 and was not rebuilt. However, the former site of the spa now lies at the heart of the present-day Subdivision, not far from the English Mountain Condominium. Those interested in visiting the Mountain to check out lots for sale - or just to get away from it all - can find excellent rental accommodations at the Condos (www.englishmtncondos.com/). They have a 4 (out of 5) star rating on Yahoo! Travel.

Our Subdivision lies about half-way in between Sevierville and Newport (about 15 miles from each) and about 20 miles from Gatlinburg. Except for the already existing Condos, all lots in the Subdivision are zoned for single-family residential use only. Our Protective Covenants are linked at the top of this page (“restrictions”). With very few exceptions, the roads in the Subdivision are private.

One of these days, English Mountain will have its very own presence on the Weather Channel and the National Weather Service, but until then our website will have to make do with Gatlinburg’s current weather information:

English Mountain in Sevier and Cocke Counties in East Tennessee, lies just a foothill or three north of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Atop the ridge and cascading down the “back side” of the mountain (the photo reflects part of the “front side”) is the English Mountain Subdivision.
