Summer Fun in the Smokies

Summer Vacation Carr KidsHusband and Fellow Innkeeper John and I have a stayvacation each year when the Alaskan branch of the family arrives.  Our family’s experience reminded me of what a great venue Buckhorn and the Smokies are for summer fun. This year we gave 5 year old great granddaughter Jane skip roping lessons on the veranda of Buckhorn House with her mom, granddaughter Jessica, me and Alice and our daugther counting out cadence.   We hiked the Inn’s nature trail, did morning runs, played games on the terrace, enjoyed hearty breakfasts and an elegant dinner served in our private dining room so the four under 10 great-grandchildren could make as much noise as possible and not disturb other guests.  We did two hikes, played golf and mini-golf, rode Gatlinburg’s new Mountain Coaster (TWICE), played Pickle Ball at the Gatlinburg Recreation Center, attended a riotous show at Dixie Stampede, and had lunch at the Mountain Lodge, a family tradition.
