Bear Sighting!

Hoping for a “bear sighting” in the Great Smoky Mountains?  Oak Haven guests will be greeted by these giant bears at check-in.  Here’s hoping they magically turn into polar bears just in time for Christmas!

It’s Fall at Blacklab Property

Fall is our favorite time of year with pumpkins and scarecrows popping up everywhere!   Our choice is always the apple caramel walnut pie with  homemade vanilla ice cream from The Creamery. Local floral designer, Melissa Henderson (Flowers by Melissa), has been busy bringing a touch of autumn to our Oak Haven homes.  We will feature photos over the next several days.  Enjoy!

Travel Tip–Be sure to stop in at Apple Barn for cider and freshly made apple pies. Our choice is always the apple caramel walnut pie with  homemade vanilla ice cream from The Creamery.




They Need Our Help

First, Harvey, now Irma!  Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone who has had their lives turned upside down by these storms.  Our vacation homes have escaped fires, wind, and hail over the past 20 years.  But nothing could ever compare to the loss of your family home!  We are supporting rescue organizations from Feeding America which is providing thousands of meals to PetSmart Charities and Houston SPCA who are caring for homeless family pets.

We encourage our guests to help in any way possible–whether you volunteer, donate, or foster homeless pets.  You never know when a tragedy might strike close to your home and community!

Tennessee Kickoff!

Experts tell us brightly colored leaf foliage is dependent on weather each year.  There is one color, however, that is abundantly displayed well before the reds and golds appear–ORANGE!  And, not just any shade of orange but Tennessee orange.  UT VOL football fans begin pouring into the Smoky Mountain/Knoxville area early in September.   Big Orange Navy floats on the river outside Neyland Stadium and strains of “Rocky Top” can be heard everywhere. Plan a weekend of football, shopping, and dining all while staying at “Unforgettable”.  Click on the icon below for the 2017 Vol Football Schedule then simply send your Reservation Request for availability and best rate.
