The favorite part of my vacation was getting up early morning and taking my cup of fresh brewed coffee to the porch and seeing all the wildlife! The Carolina Chickadee was the first to appear and the hummingbird quickly followed. Squirrels are always active in the trees.
The weather was perfect, just reaching a low of 47 degrees. The cabin was warm and cozy. Our group had peaceful, restful sleep every night on that quiet mountain.
During our stay we visited Waynesville, Ashville, Cherokee and drove into the Smoky Mountain National Park. The Waynesville visitor center told us about the Elk at dusk in the Cataloochee Valley. Hwy 276 to Cove Creek Rd (near I-40) then 12 miles back. That was the most AMAZING drive full of steep dirt and gravel roads ...but well WORTH it. The Elk were abundant. We also took scenic drives along the Blue Ridge Highway...breathtaking for this Florida girl! The leaves were just beginning to change with pops of color here and there. The middle of our stay was visiting a dear old friend in Canton where most of the locals work at Paper mill in town. A trip to Wheels thru Time Museum is a MUST,even for non-bikers. Our group spent about 2 hours there. Food places are hit or miss. Call ahead because not every restaurant is open every day. Butts on the Creek was recommended , but we arrived on Wednesday and the sign said " Open Thursday-Sunday". Again, Joey's Pancakes was on the list...but CLOSED on Thursday.
Throughout our stay, we were always comforted to know that we would arrive back home to our creature comforts. We loved your cabin. Very spacious and convenient for our group of four. Your home is clean and homey with plenty of modern conveniences like Cable , WIFI and washer dryer!
I would come back again and will definitely recommend this cabin to my friends and family.
Thanks Celeste for opening up your place to us!
