Covered porches were a way of life in the 50's, in most of the country; people would sit in the shade and watch the world go by. Porches had rockers, or porch swings. Now it's decks. It's a desirable feature in newer houses to have a deck. You tend to see a table and chairs on the deck, with an umbrella, and a barbecue grill so even the furniture is different. Well, not in Tennessee! Typical cabins have a "broken-backed" roofline that forms a deep porch across the front and, for the most part, they still have rockers and porch (2 comments)
BIG SOUTH FORK TENNESSEE: Spruce Creek Equestrian Community - 07/30/09 06:47 AM
Big South Fork, Tennessee, is a destination for trail riders. The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area encompasses 125,000 acres and has hundreds of miles of trails for riding. It's called "The Trail Riding Capital of the Southeast" and, in fact, has the best trail riding east of the Mississippi! Many who come to ride stay in a horse campground or a rental cabin. Many who come to ride STAY! Several equestrian communities have been developed now near Big South Fork. Ten years ago, people who wanted to come here for the riding bought parcels of land in Spruce (1 comments)
BIG SOUTH FORK TENNESSEE: Are You Ready To Ride? - 07/29/09 07:45 AM
This part of Tennessee, the Big South Fork, is a destination for trail riders. It is called "The Trail Riding Capital of the Southeast" and is, in fact, the best riding east of the Mississippi! The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area includes 125,000 acres with hundreds of miles of trails. The local terrain is referred to as "rolling" and some of it is ....well...more rolling than others! Some of it is, in fact, STEEP. There are many scenic overlooks where you can tie up at hitching rails and enjoy the view but first you have to get up (0 comments)

What is a "Halfback?" - 07/28/09 07:05 AM
I am a "Halfback," which is someone from up north....New England, upstate New York, Michigan etc...who moves to Florida, hates it and moves halfway back, to North Carolina, the Blue Ridge, eastern Kentucky or Tennessee. In my case, I had moved from Vermont to the Florida panhandle but found, all too soon, that the climate did not suit me. Too hot, too humid, too flat, too featureless! I fled Florida three years later, still in possession of two long-handled windshield scrapers, my ergonomic snow shovel, forty pair of wool socks, four flannel nightgowns and a down coat. Oh, yeah....I still had (0 comments)
Heavy rain started sometime well before dawn and pounded down for several hours. By the time I picked up my Buyer's Agent client yesterday morning, it had tapered off to a drizzle and we set off to see several cabins on the other side of the gorge. I live near the Big South Fork national park, Tennessee, on the Jamestown side. To get to the Oneida side, we had to cross the the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River as it flows north into Kentucky. The gorge is approximately 600 feet in depth, rimmed with magnificent sandstone bluffs. (In (2 comments)
BIG SOUTH FORK TENNESSEE: I Recommend Riding A Shod Horse - 07/26/09 08:39 AM
I've heard people say that you can ride the Big South Fork without shoes on your horses. That only works if you stick to relatively flat, mostly sandy trails, or if your horses' feet are tough as nails. This is rocky terrain, no doubt about it. On some of the steeper trails, there are outcroppings of sandstone that horses have to navigate and the last thing you want is to be on a horse whose feet slip out from under him! Most people who live here and ride these trails regularly have their farrier weld Borium caulks or Drill Tek to (1 comments)
BIG SOUTH FORK TENNESSEE: Shop 'Till You Drop! - 07/25/09 04:24 PM
It's the World's Longest Yardsale, also known as the 127 Corridor Sale... 650 miles, or thereabouts, across five states, from Gadsden, Alabama, to West Unity, Ohio. Headquartered in Jamestown, Tennessee at the Fentress County Chamber of Commerce, this unique event was first held in 1987 to lure travelers off of the interstate highways and onto the scenic back roads along the Route 127 corridor through Kentucky and Tennessee. 2009 marks the 22nd anniversary of the sale, which keeps getting longer and longer! Ohio joined only four years ago. Attracting hundreds of thousands of bargain-hunting road trippers, the annual World's Longest Yardsale always (1 comments)
BIG SOUTH FORK TENNESSEE: Unusual cool weather makes riding a pleasure! - 07/23/09 04:00 PM
What happened to The Dog Days of Summer? It was an unusually cool and rainy spring and it is now a very unusual PLEASANT July! In fact, this run of cool weather has broken a previous low temperature for July 21 in Nashville that was set when Rutherford B. Hayes was president! When the temperature at the National Weather Service station dipped to 58 degrees at 5:30 a.m. that morning, it wiped out the previous record low for the date of 60 degrees, which was set in 1877. It's generally 5-10 degrees cooler up here on the Cumberland Plateau during the (2 comments)
I live minutes from the Cumberland Trailhead into Big South Fork National Park, in Spruce Creek Acres, an equestrian community that abuts the park itself. Horses are a major part of daily life here and this is a very active, supportive horse-oriented community. It is a gift to work as a realtor here, listing horse properties and selling horse properties to horse people! We joke that I've probably done more real estate on horseback than off!
If you want to "live where you love to ride," let me help you find YOUR Big South Fork horse property .
