Highland Honeymoon

My DH and I were married in July 2010 at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, in a traditional Scottish wedding. The wedding was perfect, romantic, personal, and unique.

Our honeymoon was spent at Fish Camp Cottages just down the mountain in Linville, NC, in a tiny white cabin, on a little river. The perfect spot to rest, relax and rejuvenate after all the wedding planning. Our cabin's back porch overlooked the river, we sat in the rocking chairs, drank coffee, and enjoyed the rippling water, the fresh mountain air and each other's company most of the time. Our cabin had an enormously tall bed tucked into an alcove, a perfectly appointed living room with a comfy sofa, a recliner, a television, and a fireplace. The minute kitchen boasted everything necessary for any cooking we might want to do and our little bathroom held fluffy towels, a shower, and even a stackable washer and dryer. The cabin managers were perfect hosts, even giving us the gift of a bottle of champagne when they found out we were honeymooning.

We spent most of our time relaxing on our back porch, DH did a little fishing in the river. We did take the time to drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoy the panoramic views of the mountain. Linville Falls is a nice comfortable hike and worth the effort to view, and Linville Caverns, with its blind fish and cavern formations, is an enjoyable adventure. But mostly we simply relaxed.

It was a perfect, idyllic time... we plan to go back every year! And stay in the same cabin.
