Vacation Location

I am in the mood for a vacation!
Thursday is my last day at work. So, of course, time is moving ULTRA slow this week. :-)

But, anyways, speaking of vacations...
For all of those in, or around, northern Alabama- you should check this place out:

Kevin and I have stayed here three times in the past four years, and let me just tell you- it's SOOOO relaxing! We always stay in Cabin #1. It's the smallest of their cabins, and was "reconstructed from an 1850's cabin and moved to a quiet secluded spot on pictorial Lookout Mountain adjoining Little River Canyon National Preserve". It's a little out of the way (okay, quite a bit out of the way, to be honest) but if you're looking for some peace and quiet...this is the place!

We also visited Cathedral Cavern while staying there once.

It's the largest cave opening in the world, and is home to one of the world's largest stalagmites, frozen waterfalls, flow stone walls, stalagmite forests and other incredible formations. It's about 4000 feet long, and takes approximately an hour and a half to walk all the way in, and all the way back out.

Here's what the opening looks like-

Inside looking Out:

If anyone is interested, here is their contact info:

637 Cave Rd.
Woodville, AL 35776
256-728-8193 (fax)

Anyone have any new vacation location ideas for Kevin and I?
I'd love to gather ideas and links!

Ciao for now!

Looks like our kind of place. Kind of reminds me of our vacation last year on an island off of Door County, Wisconsin.


Due to my husbands unemployment over the summer (he's employed again, phew!), we lost our week for the cabin for this year but are staying at a cabin in Traverse City, Michigan (drool) where we have been before. It's so beautiful there and I'll post pics when we get back from our trip in August.

Fun to see you guys enjoy a similar type of vacation as we do.

You would love Fall Creek Falls, TN. We are near Huntsville and went last fall break to an area north of FCF's. We went for the day and all 5 kids loved it. Deer on the side of the road that do not run away when you drive up and stop. Waterfalls, beautiful lookouts. In the side of the cliffs there are little tunnels/crevices you can walk through. Hiking. Fishing. Horseback riding. Fishing cabins, tent camping, a hotel on the water, or interior cabins.

Our favorite place is Colonia Williamsburg. I suppose that's why we built a Williamsburg house.
