Her eyes were focused on the sun setting behind the tall pinnacle opposite. I looked from her face to the peak. Rugged scenery certainly--majestic--but I did not understand her intense concentration on it. Then suddenly, the sun dipped and the shadow of the mountain fell across us, lying like a dark hand across the top of the ridge where we stood.
Our cabins are a great place to just "hang out" and relax. But, if you enjoy a wide range of activities, there is no shortage of exciting things to do. East Tennessee has something for everyone, no matter what your interests might be.
Within minutes of our cabins is the premier location for whitewater rafting in the Smokies. You will find trails to hike and many natural wonders to discover just outside your door.
The small country road we are located on, has surprising historical attractions that few people are aware of. Just up the road is a tiny one-lane road that once upon a time, led to a small community called "Rocky Top". The mountains have long since reclaimed the community, but if you have a rugged four wheel drive vehicle or are a intermediate to experienced hiker, you can enjoy some of the breathtaking views on Rocky Top Road that inspired the famous song.
Also just up Old 15th Road, is the factual location of "Cutter Gap", the community made famous by Catherine Marshall's book, Christy, and later by the popular TV series starring Kellie Martin andd Tyne Daly. One of the original log cabins is still standing and the foundations of the buildings have been marked by the current owners of the property. It's a wonderful place to pack a picnic and visit and a must-see for any die hard Christy fan.
We are within easy driving distance to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, and the Great Smoky Mountain's National Park on the Tennessee side. Equally close are Asheville, the Carl Sandburg Homeplace, Biltmore Estates, Maggie Valley, Pisgah National Forest, Hot Springs, Cherokee and Harrah's Casino.
