Our 2nd Cabin Stay at The Hill on Cherokee Lake

Finally writing my travel posts...
About time as the year is racing towards the end with Christmas coming our way SOON!
May you find cozy days with your loved ones.
~
Yep, we came back for our 2nd Cabin Stay and this time at the NEW! Log Cabin w/Fire Pit & Deck on Cherokee Lake!
NEW! Log Cabin w/Fire Pit & Deck on Cherokee Lake! click it and click through...
On Friday, October 25 we drove to this NEW! Log Cabin, final hours in heavy rain but we got there safe.
This photo is taken on Sunday, October 27 around 17:40
Our Nissan Murano parked near the stairs up onto the deck.
Fire Pit is visible to the right and is burning here...
We had enjoyed some great home cooking by Donna!
The weather was such that we could still sit outside on the deck - just perfect.
Perfect also, because of the view over Cherokee Lake.
Trees still had all their leaves on, it was so lovely to walk around near the lake.
We even sat around the Fire Pit for great story telling!
No matter how lovely your stay, there comes an END to it...
Had to capture this quote by writer Josh Parham.
Yes, the owners, Mother and son ARE writers too!
In the related link below this post from my previous writing about them, you find all their writing info...
On Monday after breakfast I did write this in their special guest book...
Favorite thing about this stay:
Attending a wedding in nearby Tazewell, this was a perfect choice. No other hotel will offer the beauty and peace you find here.
Places I would recommend (Restaurants, Shopping, Entertainment, Etc.):
Stay at home and use their complete kitchen. For perfect relaxation and full benefits for your well-being nothing from outside will do.
Favorite memory from your stay:
Always a joy to be greeted by Josh and Donna (the owners)
Other Notes:
Arriving at the driveway is like coming home!
There can no nicer hosts be found!!!
Perfect privacy within the comfort of a cozy cabin.
Donna's treat to some of her excellent home cooking adds to the feeling at home.
Josh's philosophy is a special experience too.
Hope guests will find out that both are also excellent writers!
Our last evening together near the fire pit outside with some story telling was the exclamation mark for this stay!
Thanks dearest Donna & Josh - till next time!!
Left this on their website only click on the BOLD TITLE, not on the general link for EVOLVE...

Our travel will continue; stay tuned!

Thanks for your visit and comment.

  2. Hello Mariette, The only thing that could be nicer than staying in the cabin in that beautiful setting is to be hosted by such welcoming, charming and intelligent people.

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      No this one we never stayed at, it was a NEW one that they offered not long ago.
      Even cozier and cuter than the one we stayed in before!
      Those hosts are the TRUE GEMS to this...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    1. Drodzy Małgorzata,
      Tak, bardzo ładne miejsce i z pięknymi ludźmi! Syn powoli staje się ślepy i głuchy, więc również trzeba go tak źle... Mam nadzieję, że to przynosi trochę sławy!
      Miłość, a także grzywny 2nd Christmas Day i szczęśliwego i zdrowego nowego roku!
