Spring has finally arrived. I hope many of your have already received the postcard about our new season. We’ve adopted a “theme” of sorts this year…Return to Simplicity…Return to Nature. With all that’s been going on, we think it is time for all of us to slow down, refocus our priorities, and return to a simpler time. We invite you to return to Hemlock Inn and the nature surrounding our 57 acres.
Return to Nature is appropriate since 2009 is the 75th Anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. They will have activities planned for all year.
To make it possible for folks to take a vacation, we are offering several incentives including the elimination of charge for children under age 16 for the summer months, special discounts for multi-day stays, and adventure packages for families and adults. We invite families to enjoy an experience like being at a family camp, except with warm beds, hot showers, and home cooked meals. Spend quality family time together doing all sorts of family activities such as rafting, riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, going to “Unto These Hills” outdoor drama, tubing, hiking and much more. Adults can have the same experience as well with the Adult Adventure Package. Call us and let us help you plan your trip.
Like many other places, Hemlock Inn in making an effort to “Go Green”.
The first thing we have done is to switch to completely green cleaning products. These products are from a brand new company and carry the DfE (Designed for Environment) seal of the EPA. Lainey and I have recently become involved with this company and if you are interested in learning more about the cleaning products, their health products, or the company, let us know. We have switched just about all of our light bulbs to the new fluorescent tube bulbs. We have begun a comprehensive recycling effort, sorting all our cans, bottles, cardboard etc and making containers available in each of our rooms. We will also provide our room soap and shampoo in reusable pump containers, eliminating all the wasteful individual plastic individual bottles. We have a long way to go, but we want to be part of the effort to help our environment.
I hope your winter has been pleasant and that you are planning a great spring, summer and fall. We have had decent rains and the drought concerns are greatly diminished. The streams are running well, the early spring flowers are beginning to come up, and the grass is turning green. We expect a glorious spring. Rooms are available starting April 13. Let us know how we can help you.
