But first, we had to get there.
The place is dog friendly, so we paid the extra $25 so Napoleon could come with. This might make me a crazy dog lady, but I bought a dog car seat for him so he'd be safe during our 12+ hour drive. He didn't seem to hate it after a while.
What should have been a full-day drive exploded into a backwoods gallivant after a landslide near the Kentucky-Tennessee border closed the highway. It took us three hours off course, along with a ton of other motorists.
Once we finally arrived, there was a super steep drive up a gravel road. I'm glad Tim did all the driving instead of me.
The cabin was filled with country charm. It was clearly a pre-fab home, but it was well-maintained. We opted for the two bedroom, two bath option, which came with a surprisingly well-equipped kitchen.
They must have known we were coming, because there were three corkscrews in the drawer. Sweet.
The first day, we enjoyed coffee from our porch, which overlooked the mountains. Absolutely beautiful.
New friends (we found this collered, but unleashed dog on the second day. I called her Bratwurst, because she foraged one out of our garbage. I eventually took her for a run, or at least part of one)
And lots of sunning on the porch with coffee, a good book and a little furry friend.
