The Best Time of the Year

We love all the seasons of the year, spring with its new growth, summer for all the outdoor activities available for the family vacations, winter brings Thanksgiving and the Polar Express.  But everyone’s favorite has to be the fall.

Fall brings the glorious colors that cover our mountains like a bag of M&M’s.  There are yellows, reds, still some greens, and even browns that magically the hillsides with spectacular views only seen in Autumn

The cool nights gives way to a brisk morning, a fire in the fireplace crackles as you enjoy your first cup of hot coffee, and the warm conversation around our lazy susan tables at breakfast starts your day.  It is followed by a hike, walk, or just a stroll on one of the many Great Smokies trials to bear witness to natures true splendor.  Your evenings are spent around the tables once more as you share the experiences of the day.

The best news is rooms are still available, especially during the week.

November and December are the times to come enjoy “The Polar Express.  Tickets sell out early, so make your plans now.
