I’m spending a few days in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with some writer friends. We’re having a blast in our rustic Cabins For You getaway, though some would find our outing to be low-key.

The area has numerous attractions that (for us) aren’t the attraction at all. Rather, it’s the solitude, quiet and change of scenery that brought us to this place. You see, we’re all about the writing on this trip…well, that and the food. We did make a special trip to the local Wal-Mart grocery to grab fortification to sustain us through the strenuous work of writing. ;-)

Words are flowing, pages of new story are appearing in part because of the great and relaxing surroundings. We’ve got a spacious living area on the lower floor, another off the kitchen complete with a fireplace. (What great ambiance for writing romance, right?) And if we need a little space from others, there’s a game room in the loft above the kitchen. DSC03867It’s really a lovely cabin.

If any of you are looking for a vacation getaway, we’re all impressed with the welcome we received here. But don’t take my word for it, check out the pics!
