In 2001 after vacationing in the Smoky Mountains, we decided to build a log home. Everyone names their house up here, and we christened ours “Life’s a Bear Get Away & Retreat”. This year was the first time that we were able to spend the entire summer in the mountains. We were also able to stay well into the fall season and experience the incredible beauty of the changing leaves. Decorating our home is so much fun! I try to change it for every season and have been know to use lots of moose and bears!
