Cabin That Took Our Breath Away

Cabin: Unforgettable

A vacation? We hadn't really thought about it ? it was March, after all. And then our daughter and her family have invited us to join them on theirs. They had been looking for a place to go with the family and after some research, determined that they were going to the Great Smokey Mountains, and had rented a 'cabin' that had plenty of room for their family and the two of us. What fun time with the family and the grandchildren and we hadn't been to Tennessee, either.

So, the planning began. Departure was scheduled for the end of May. What should we do, where should we go, and oh, by the way, here's the website for where we'll be staying. It's called Elk Springs Resort. Cabin? Did you say cabin? Nothing could have prepared us for what we were viewing on the web. The beauty of the area, the incredible views, the size and amenities of the 'cabin' quite literally took our breath away.

Our arrival at the Four Seasons came after having spent the previous week in a hospital room with a beloved family member. We were ready to unwind and relax.

I wish someone had been there when we pulled up to the cabin to record the expressions on our faces as we drove up, entered and explored this incredible edifice. Beautifully decorated, with every possible convenience we could hope for, yet not pretentious. It was a perfect environment for 2 families to share, giving us both private and community areas. They stayed on the lower level; we took the upper ? which provided us with all the amenities of having our own home away from home, while still being all together. We loved sitting out on the rear decks on the upper and main levels, reading, talking, and enjoying God?s beautiful creation.

Sadly, we were called back to our original destination after just 2 and 1/2 days, and had to leave this beautiful place, but we both were convinced that we definitely wanted to return to Elk Springs again. This place had indeed touched us in a tangible way.

Fast forward to September?.God provided the means to take (another) vacation. We'd spend 3 weeks on the road, culminating with a week at Elk Springs, where we'd unwind and relax and enjoy the sights. This time, it was just the two of us, and we stayed at Elk Springs? Bearfoot Mountain Resort in the Unforgettable cabin, and we definitely were not disappointed. Once again, we entered with many oohs and aahs! This cabin was more than perfect for just the two of us. The weather was incredible and we spent many hours on the rear deck ? reading, relaxing and dining; in the hot tub, and enjoying that fabulous 55' 3D TV. Our time in our little mountain paradise passed much too quickly, but the memories will linger on and we know that if the Lord wills, we will definitely return to Elk Springs.

Our heartfelt thanks to God who allowed us to take this trip and granted us safe travel. To all those at Elk Springs who (patiently and so pleasantly) answered all our questions, and to those who created this wonderful resort area for people to enjoy, we thank you. Our time was so blessed. I am confident that anyone looking for an amazing vacation experience can confidently enter into a commitment to stay at Elk Springs. The variety of things to do is endless, as is the joy found simply in the quiet rest that will be found here.
