Meet the Simmons Family – Glad & Marty


In the 1970s, we traveled this winding road in a bright yellow Volkswagen. We stopped at the Mark of the Potter to gawk at the waterfall and the big trout. Never in a million years could we imagine that we would one day live on this stretch of Hwy 197. We are blessed beyond our expectations because all we ever desired was a little trickle of water we could hear from a screened porch. This land once belonged to the Cherokee, and one day it will belong to another caretaker. In the meantime, we just try to be good stewards, showing a little hospitality at a place we think is pretty special.
