SPRING is coming!  SOON!

I am really looking forward to Spring, aren't you?  These longer days make me want to start making plans for Summer vacation.  Wildflowers will be blooming and wildlife will begin to move about in Cades Cove and I want to be there! 

Now I'm not normally an early riser, but I drug myself out of bed before daylight spent an amazing morning in Cades Cove while we were at Asbury Cottage in December.  I couldn't believe the HUGE bucks!  I was able to get several pictures and some were even worthy of sharing with you on our Facebook page and on a calendar hanging at Asbury Cottage.

After attending Pigeon Forge's Wilderness Wildlife Week last year, I have been "gung ho" at learning all I can about photography.  Yep, now I officially have a hobby...defined as "finding things to purchase online that I (cough-cough) can't live without."  :)

But seriously, if you get a chance, set the alarm if you have to, grab your camera, and get to The Cove early in the morning.  Take your time.  You'll be amazed at what you will see.  Be sure to share your photos with us on Facebook!

What's New at Asbury Cottage?
Who couldn't relax and enjoy a hot cup of coffee on the newly resurfaced deck?  We removed the lattice and resurfaced the floor and painted the spindles and railing.  This is my favorite spot at Asbury Cottage.
Guess What!  In mid-April, Asbury Cottage will be getting a TIN ROOF!  Ahhhh the soothing sounds of rain will make you sleep like a baby.
We have added two new recliners to provide additional comfy seating in the living room area.  We have also added all-weather rockers to the back deck.

New Cleaning Service
We are partnering with a new cleaning service as of March 1st.  We are excited that this new partnership will allow us to provide some additional personalized services for you.  More details at a later date...
This is our latest upgrade project - new six-panel doors down the hallway.  The others will be replaced soon. 
Corn-Hole anyone?  Our guests are loving the addition of our custom corn-hole boards.  Asbury Cottage's yard has plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy the outdoor game.
Each visit gives us the opportunity to make some improvements - sometimes big, sometimes small.  In addition to the changes mentioned above, we have
  • updated the TV in "The Bear's Den" bedroom to a wall mounted flat screen
  • added a TV and DVD player to the "Cades Cove" bedroom
  • added a Keurig coffee maker
  • replaced the water pressure regulator to eliminate the moaning pipes
  • added some requested kitchen items
I like to say "it's the little things" that make Asbury Cottage special.  If you have suggestions for improvement, send us an email or a private message on Facebook.
