The Day We Have Been Long Awaiting…


So, what is so special about the picture above?  It was take from the view point in the drive just outside the office door of Tremont Outdoor Resort.  This is now the view of the NEW BRIDGE with no construction barrels, no work trucks, no temporary bridge, no cranes or other equipment, and no temporary traffic lights!  That’s right, after almost a year, Townsend is back to being a one traffic light town and Tremont has its peace and quiet fully restored.  Not only that, we have a brand new bridge that is a full 8 feet wider than our old bridge!  Ok, so really the bridge belongs to the State of TN, but it is a necessity to us, so sometimes we are known to use the wrong possessive pronoun:)  Two full size lanes and a shoulder on each side!  Also, the weight limit sign that graced the end of the old bridge has also been removed, so anyone who had doubts over whether or not the bridge would support their rig can now cross with an easy mind.

Couple this fantastic news with the fact that we have been having incredible spring weather in January and February, and it is a great time for a get-away to the Great Smoky Mountains right now!  I heard a rumor the other day that the daffodils were actually blooming in Cades Cove!  So, don’t wait for Spring to make your next visit, beat the crowds and head on over to visit us now:)

There is still one piece of unfinished business in regard to the bridge…we have not yet been able to put the Tremont Outdoor Resort sign back up on the road at the end of the bridge.  So, if you have stayed with us before, you know where we are, but you might want to slow down to make sure you don’t miss the turn.  If you are new to our little piece of Heaven on Earth, we are the last thing before you enter the National Park.  Once you pass the KOA, look for the bridge on your left and that is us!  If you come to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sign, you have gone too far.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before we have the sign back in place.

We look forward to seeing everyone!
