I've found a place that fits into my perfect idea of a relaxing vacation. Is it the beach? No. Although I'm a big fan of week-long stints as a beach bum. Is it the big city? No. Although I could shop and enjoy museums and live theater any day of the week.
In the midst of a chaotic and vacationless year, I found a place where I feel I could truly relax. Have you heard of Butterfly Gap? Click on the link to indulge yourself. In the middle of the Smoky Mountains sits about nine contemporary cabins (adorable, I must say). It's scenic seclusion, where you spend you days reading on the front porch, shopping in the nearby town and simply enjoying your natural surroundings.
If that doesn't make your bones feel like Jell-o, shall I mention the sleeping porches, soaking tubs and the gourmet breakfast delivered to your doorstep each morning.
As "30 Rock" Tina Fey would say, "I want to go there."
