Was it the chestnut mare who watched us sip our morning coffee? Or the wild orchids we saw along the trail? Was it the couple, who ten minutes after meeting us, invited us to their home for a fish fry? Was it the sweet fragrance of the meadows or the even sweeter s’mores around the firepit? Perhaps it was simply this... discovering that 5,000 acres can fit so comfortably into one’s heart.

Welcome to the inaugural issue of the annual Center Hill Lake Visitor’s Guide! It is with great pleasure that Terry and I introduce this high quality visitor’s guide to you. You will find this guide filled with excellent day trip ideas, off the beaten track fun places to visit, information on the great marinas, and lodging opportunities on Center Hill Lake. Let’s not forget our favorite past-times, and places to eat and shop in the region. You’ll find that information in here as well. Center Hill Lake’s close proximity to Nashville has allowed many Nashvillians to play here on the weekends and during summer family vacations, buy weekend or retirement homes, and yet stay close to home for a fun filled family getaway. Center Hill Lake offers 415 miles of unspoiled shoreline with beautifully serene jagged edges, abundant nature with wildlife, indigenous plants – both foliage and flowering, and plenty of outdoor activities to keep families, retirees, couples and other visitors satisfied during their stay. Whether you like to houseboat, ski, swim, fish, relax, or just troll along with your ski boat or pontoon boat, Center Hill Lake has 9 marinas to serve you. Smithville, the county seat of DeKalb County and the heartbeat of the Center Hill Lake region, is a bustling community with a growing historic downtown square. Their tireless Chamber Director, Ms. Suzanne Williams and her excellent staff of volunteers and business leaders organize annual events, attract new commerce, and keep newcomers abreast of the pertinent information that they need to make their new home, “home”. Center Hill Lake is rich in beauty, and brimming with creativity in the company of the many artists, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs in the region. This makes the Center Hill Lake region and Smithville truly a community woven from many diverse individuals creating a magnificent canvas. Some of the residents have lived here their whole lives, yet many have moved here to be a part of this rich fabric. The camaraderie between newcomers and locals is apparent and the community pride is abundant. One of the highlights of the year is the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree and Craft Festival which attracts over 100,000 visitors each year with 200 craft booths and amazing bluegrass, country, folk and Appalachian musical talent from across the state of Tennessee and the Southeast. The Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour is an amazing fall art tour through the region. It is a fun, interesting, and scenic tour of art studios within the Center Hill Lake, Smithville area. In 2009, 26 area artists participated at 11 stops. You can watch as they demonstrate their amazing talents while creating their works of art in genre such as wood carving, canvas, glass blowing, weaving and tapestry, pottery, photography, sculpture, chair making, and so much more. Stella Luna Art Gallery in Smithville is at the heart of this tour. Their love of art, people, and one another has brought this high end gallery to Middle Tennessee featuring beautiful pieces, and showcasing many of the very talented artists of the region. The Joe L. Evins Appalachian Center for Craft is a top notch school and museum for artists from around the country. It also offers great opportunities for shoppers, and those looking to learn more about the crafts featured through workshops and other programs throughout the year. If you are looking for places to eat, many of the marinas have excellent lakeside dining facilities, serving seafood, grilled steaks, and outstanding summer fare. Need somewhere to stay?

Center Hill Marina & Yacht Club is a full service marina facility conveniently located off of Hwy. 96 and I-40. This large marina offers over 600 boat slips, lakeview cabin rentals, pontoon rentals, and slip rentals. Center Hill Marina is tucked away in a beautiful cove. It has been a fixture on Center Hill Lake for around fifty years. To compliment the marina, they offer a lakeside restaurant; the wonderful Coppertop “Floating” Restaurant. It has been serving vacationers, locals and visitors for many years and offers excellent food in a casual atmosphere. Restaurant Manager Helen Maynard loves to tell about the best hand breaded catfish on Center Hill Lake and smiles when she talks about one of the dinner favorites at the Coppertop Restaurant, the “Redneck Nachos”. The “Redneck Nachos” are topped with hickory smoked barbecue, homemade barbecue sauce and salsa, white beans, and mozzarella cheese to create this delicious concoction. They are open during season, from April through October, on the weekends only. They have inside and outside seating and the Sunday only breakfast buffet is a lake favorite with all the wonderful breakfast food - including made-to-order French toast. Helen talks fondly of their homemade desserts and says that the banana pudding is “to die for”. Marina Manager Mistie Mauldin added that the chocolate pie and the peanut butter fudge pie are also irresistible.

It became their home away from home during the summer creating many fond memories. Frida met Reece Nash and married into the family. She has enjoyed and worked in the marina for many years and still loves Center Hill Lake even though her beloved Reece has since past away.

Breakfast is served afterwards and this is a great time to give God glory and to enjoy the fellowship of boaters and vacationers. Independence Day is a real special day at Cookeville Boat Dock and each year they offer a great celebration with fireworks always held on the 4th of July. It is extremely important to them to hold their event on that day.

Smithville-DeKalb County 0
The heart of the Center Hill Lake region is the downtown area of Smithville in DeKalb County, TN. Boy is there a lot to do in this vibrant town and the surrounding area! Suzanne Williams, their passionate, energetic Chamber Director has led this community for many years. She lights up any room with her beautiful smile and her positive “can-do” attitude. Stop by the Chamber and say “hello” to Suzanne and get more information about the local area, retirement, and relocation information. Smithville is conveniently located off of I-40 and Hwy. 56. It is easy to get to the downtown area, where the City Hall, shops, antiques, gift stores, restaurants and professional offices are located. Cantrell’s Clothing and Fluty’s Shoes are owned and operated by the Cantrell family. The clothing store is like those I remember from my childhood (and most anyone born before 1980 can). It is loaded with the latest fashions, full of style and the service is impeccable. Recently I bought a red trench coat there and loved the help and advice given by Mr. and Mrs. Cantrell. You can find a little bit of everything - from a special boating outfit to a summer dress, or just about anything for a man, woman or child. Make sure to take a look across the street at Fluty’s Shoes which offers name brand athletic shoes, sandals, cowboy boots, hats, purses and all the accessories. Smithville also has Tennessee’s oldest familyowned pharmacy which is run by the Webb family. Webb’s Pharmacy & Gifts has been in the family since 1881. There you can find their antique pharmaceutical bottles and a really great gift shop. I found a great selection of home furnishings, handcrafted pottery by Susan DeMay, decorative plates and bowls for your lake cabin home or houseboat, children’s toys including my favorite Melissa and Doug toys, an expansive line of greeting cards, baby shower gifts, jewelry and so much more. Make sure you stop in and see the Webb family and say “hello”. All this shopping is sure to make you hungry, and two of our favorites are the Sundance Restaurant and J. Ashburn’s Heartland Café. Sundance has great daily specials, wonderful fresh salads, sandwiches and some awesome homemade soups and desserts. My grilled chicken taco salad was excellent and the homemade salsa which topped it off was superb. Even though I shouldn’t have, my guest and I shared a slice of key lime pie, and oh was it good. The Heartland Café is the newest sit down eatery in downtown Smithville. It has a great, casual, fun atmosphere with excellent barbecue, country cooking, burgers, sandwiches and daily specials with wonderful southern hospitality. If you are in the mood to relax and to be pampered….not a problem. The Smithville Square has several full-service salons and specialized skin care experts to serve you. Downtown Smithville can be reached by traveling west on Hwy. 70, turn right onto North Congress Blvd., then turn left at the red light (West Main Street) and travel 1 block to the square. The two highlights of the year in DeKalb County are the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree & Crafts Festival which always takes place the first Friday and Saturday in July and the DeKalb County Fair in Alexandria. The Jamboree is a must see if you love music, dance, and pure Appalachian crafts. Come see what over 100,000 visitors from all around the world come to experience annually. The DeKalb County Fair has been known as the “Grandpa Fair of the South” since 1856. The Award Winning DeKalb County Fair showcases everything from beauty pageants to the best agricultural and home-grown products to flat track racing. The midway is filled with arcades and rides for hours of games and fun. The newest additions to the fair include the “DeKalb Idol”, “DeKalb Top Model”, and “The Vintage Fashion Show” which have become crowd favorites. Come experience home-town living, hospitality and friendly people, enjoy downtown Smithville, the Stella Luna Art Gallery, the festivals and fairs, the local eateries, and so much more!

Appalachian Center for Craft 0
The Appalachian Center for Craft is a jewel in the Center Hill Lake area. The campus sets upon over 500 acres of wooded land, overlooking breathtaking Center Hill Lake. The Center offers a top notch gallery, one of the finest in the southeast, displaying over 100 plus regional artists’ traditional and fine art crafts. The center also prides itself in offering up to twenty cutting-edge exhibitions featuring a variety of fine craft and mixed media work by regional, national and international artists in their three exhibition galleries. Originally run by the Tennessee Arts Commission, this nationally acclaimed center became part of the Music and Art Department of Tennessee Technological University (TTU) in Cookeville as a satellite campus in 1985. Currently, they have about 135 students. Offering Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees and Master of Fine Art degrees, the Center offers competitive resident artists programs with instruction, housing and studio space. The Center also offers non-degree Craft Certificate programs in clay, fibers, glass, metals, and wood that are open to the public. The Appalachian Center for Craft is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Now I, “Annie”, love art. I have since my years in Belgium and Europe when I was introduced to contemporary art by my dear friend Kathryn Feldman, a known artist in France and Belgium who has been commissioned in France and has had her work displayed in several galleries in France, Germany, and Belgium. I was so excited to find such a wonderful gallery located so close to the lake filled with the works of artists seemingly bursting from the hills, valleys and towns of the Upper Cumberland. Artists are literally coming out of the woodwork to showcase their work at so many different venues, including the Appalachian Center, Stella Luna Art Gallery, the Smithville Jamboree, and “Annie’s favorite” in the fall, the Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour which showcases many artists. Enjoy some of the Center’s seasonal special events and kick off spring with the annual Celebration of Craft with live craft demonstrations, live music, kid’s activities, hands on craft projects for kids, silent auction, gallery discounts and more. Christmas is special at the Center with the Holiday Festival that takes place following Thanksgiving Day. This event features live demonstrations, one-of-akind gifts, handmade ornaments, and exhibitions. If you like to hike, they also have a hiking trail at the Center. William Stacey was a member of the Craft Center’s Maintenance Staff over a 17 year period; he loved to work on the trail system. That trail system is now open and dedicated to his memory. There are 4 wonderful trails that range in length from a 1.3 mile loop to a 3.7 mile round trip that is rated moderate to difficult. The trails are beautiful in the spring with the wildflowers and majestic views of Center Hill Lake from the many overlooks. The Center also has a coffee shop where you can enjoy coffee and a scone or a bowl of soup and sandwich during the lunch hours. The Craft Center has meeting space with a spacious conference room available for meetings, events, and weddings. They also offer a catering service available on-site. The gallery is open seven days a week from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM and also offers online shopping at www.tntech.edu/craftcenter. Check out their website for exhibitions, events, craft workshop dates, hiking trail maps and the Walkway Café’s seasonal hours of operation or phone them at 615-597-6801.

0 Stella Luna Art Gallery
Stella Luna Art Gallery is a star quality gallery that one would expect to find in New York City or Los Angeles, not Smithville, Tennessee. The love of the mountains, memories of Louis’ Granddad fishing and hunting in the Catskills of New York, and their love of the simple life brought the Colombarinis to the Upper Cumberland thirty years ago. While working with clay at a ceramic class in Florida during their college years, the couple fell in love. They were both passionate about clay and had similar visions of the life that they would have. Louis and Christine set out on a journey to find their perfect home during the late seventies. They wanted a home that would also serve as their art studio and give them the right energy and creativity. Traveling over 10,000 miles on a camping trip on a shoestring budget, they discovered and took in the wonders of Northern California, Oregon and states in between before falling in love with Tennessee. Settling in the Upper Cumberland, they purchased a gorgeous 30 acre plot of land with all the cash that they could get together. Then they proceeded to learn the life of a sharecropper. They quickly became educated as to what chiggers are, learned about the life of a tobacco farmer, how to smoke ham, and grow a garden. They were self sufficient, but realized that farming was not for them full-time. Although they gained a great deal of experience and learned from the adventure, this is not what they had in mind long term. They settled for a wonderful piece of property and home just outside of Smithville in the early 1980’s, which has also become their studio. About eight years ago, Louis’ dream of having a gallery was realized when he found the perfect house which could be transformed into such a space; a place where their master work and that of other artists from the region could be displayed. The Stella Luna Art Gallery was born. There’s an interesting explanation behind the choosing of the name “Stella Luna”. Louis and Christine would love to share with you. When you stop in, be sure to ask them about it. For some time, Christine and Louis averaged doing about 1215 festivals a year and also wholesaled their work to different galleries around the country. Today they limit their festival participation, sell online, and still wholesale their work. They pride themselves in crafting rare vessels in clay through processes that no one else is using. Christine has been working with a process of creating clay vessels and sculpted forms by working with a primitive pit firing method using straw and sawdust. This method creates grass patterns, fire clouds, and rich sepia tones. Her work has brought her several awards. Louis started out with a “Raku” style of work, but is currently working with a primitive pit firing method using a copper wash. The results are fabulous. This dynamic duo strives to bring the simplicity of clay to life creating a perfect form with texture and color. Their methods and techniques allow them to best highlight their artistry. This has brought the honor of being designated as some of the top potters in the United States. Their design and sculpting have allowed them to fine tune their processes. Their passion is apparent through the many objects on display in their gallery - especially during one of their favorite events of the year, the “Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour”. This fall tour spotlights several artists in the Middle Tennessee area and winds along the scenic roads, across creeks, and showcases some of the best artists and craftspeople “at home” in their studios. Many of them are not only displaying their work, but demonstrate during the event. If you love art, this tour through the countryside is a must. Stella Luna Art Gallery is the beginning point for the tour, and hosts Louis and Christine will be happy to show you around, talk lovingly about their work, and give you a map to enjoy the tour. Stella Luna Art Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm or by appointment and they can be contacted at (615) 597-4004 or visit them online at www.cosmic-clay.com.

Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour 0

The Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour is one of those hip, cool, fall events that “Annie” discovered in the Center Hill Lake area while visiting the Stella Luna Art Gallery. The 11th Annual Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour will be at the end of October - a perfect time of the year to marvel at the blanket of color draped across the mountains surrounding the deep blue azure of Center Hill Lake. (Please see the www.OffTheBeatenPathTour.com website for downloadable maps and brochures, and additional information on the artists.) The Hospitality and Art Exhibit Center takes place at the Stella Luna Art Gallery in Smithville, TN where you will find light refreshments, maps and directions available if needed. I had the great pleasure of meeting with sculptor William Kooienga and wife, Sharon, one beautiful Saturday morning (picture on right). Sharon is a very accomplished fiber artist weaving with angora and mohair fibers, just to name a few. Her tapestry work and rugs adorn their rustic home and bring color to their living area. The Kooienga’s moved from Asheville, NC several years ago and fell in love with the area, buying 100 plus acres. They live simply on their expansive acreage, and have lovingly built their log home of the trees from the forest around them. They have a solar powered home with water from the creek that lines their sprawling tree-lined gravel road. William’s expansive studio where he sculpts wood and stone masterpieces overlooks the home place. He has been commissioned to sculpt some fine pieces and loves the creativity that he feels in his lovely environment. William also creates custom furniture, art pieces made out of interesting lengths of wood that are found in their forest, and other custom pieces which display his talent. The Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour covers a wide realm of artists from potters, glass blowers, furniture makers, quilters, jewelers, and wood turners. The tour takes you through the beautiful back roads of Tennessee and allows you to see the countryside at its best; showcasing the vibrant autumn colors and wonderful aromas of the season. Being able to see the artists at work in their studio is so interesting and one can learn so much about their particular style of work and wonderful personalities along the way. One artist, Tim Hintz, has been constructing ladder-back chairs for many years and is a former Tennessee Arts Commission fellow. Tim’s award winning work has been showcased at many festivals and events across the country. Folks from all over have ordered these top quality chairs. He starts with the highest quality middle Tennessee red oak and collects his own hickory bark for the woven seats. You could say that his chairs are ergonomically designed, as the back posts are steam-bent to give a supportive curve. If you have a

Blue Water Bay-The Master Plan Vacation Year Round By Holly Clark One of the best kept secrets in small town America is the Blue Water Bay Community. Just a short drive from the “Mayberry” atmosphere of Smithville, Tennessee, you will find hidden in the beautiful lakefront hills an elite community. Blue Water Bay is over 290 acres where you can renew your body, soul, and spirit. Living in this master-planned community, you can unwind from the stress of the outside world while nestled in a majestic hardwood forest. Here you will find a renewed sense of well being by surrounding yourself and the ones you love with the sights and sounds of nature. Mr. Todd Hasty, of Smithville’s Premier Realty, recalls being a part of the community’s humble beginnings, “I fell in love with the property and envisioned an idyllic lake community that would truly be special. I felt that the panoramic views of Center Hill Lake and the beautiful picturesque hills of the Cumberland Plateau offered an opportunity to provide a first class lake community that people could enjoy year round”. He said he envisioned a resort style concept with a family atmosphere. In his vision, the community would have a state of the art pool and fitness center with first class amenities; a pavilion with a fireplace and meeting rooms. Mr. Larry Hasty, a residential developer since 1977, shared the dream. Like his son Todd, Larry Hasty started as a real-estate agent, and moved into developing. Both father and son share their experience of riding the virgin land—300 acres of old logging trails. As they rode the trails, within them a dream of resort size quality began to expand in their minds. Larry Hasty said, “Riding the trails, you see the lake from every view, and the views are breath-taking spectacular—even from a distance”. Charlie Gamble of THIRD COAST CONSTRUCTION was hired to build houses that would make the development distinctive. He said, “Blue Water Bay was challenging, because we wanted to protect the integrity and beauty of the natural setting, while using the terrain to accentuate the gorgeous views of the lake. We used the colors of the houses to blend into the environment keeping the scene environmental friendly and using the natural scenery as much as we could”. Gamble was up for the challenge and excited about the opportunity to build on the lake. “We worked with a different type of construction and different type of houses than what I have worked on in the Brentwood and Franklin area”. Gamble has known the Hastys for over twenty-five years, and worked with them in the Franklin and Brentwood developments. Larry Hasty, who also has a home in Blue Water Bay said that the houses are a distinction to this lake community. He said, “To make the project special this development would be different by actually having houses, whereas most of the area’s lake communities sold properties in hopes that the owner’s might one day have the time, money and energy to build on the property.” The main draw of the respected community is residential activity—and Todd Hasty’s dream for a Resort Activity Center. The dream is in fact a reality. A person can truly live in Blue Water Bay and feel as though they are on holiday all year long. The quality of the community center is spectacular and most certainly a plus for the year long and the vacationing residents of this unbelievable community. “The neighborhood of Blue Water Bay owns state of the art POOL Center, recreation; work out area, and a really nice facility for catering weddings or parties that might be too large for your home,” Larry Hasty said. “The view as you exercise is amazing,” Todd Hasty comments. The three story event center overlooks the water providing a view of the changing of the seasons as only Tennessee can truly offer. In Blue Water Bay, you will find a contemporary home with industrial cues in the interior that seem to blend into the blue steely water of the lake. There is not another area that offers such luxury, beauty, and uniqueness in small town America—in Tennessee. Truly---you must see Blue Water Bay and have YOUR breath taken away just as the Hasty’s did, upon their arrival. You too will be hooked—line and sinker.

moved in by the end of summer 2010. Several condominiums have been sold and these 2 and 3 bedroom residences are sure to be popular. LBL’s Equestrian Center managers, Lamar and Vanessa Wright, bring sunshine and experience to those LBL residents looking to enjoy their horses or adopt a horse to ride the over thirty miles of trails that allow the novice or experienced rider the chance to explore the majestic beauty of Long Branch Lakes. Lamar and Vanessa feel blessed to offer such wonderful equestrian quarters, including a new 100’ x 200’ outdoor arena, new paddocks, and luscious pastures for the horses to graze. For many residents, the allure of horseback riding was just a distant dream; but at LBL, residents are finally able to fulfill their dreams with experienced professionals to teach them the basics within the comforts of their own community. Lamar and Vanessa’s knowledge is comprehensive in both English and Western disciplines. They are there to help with professional instruction for riders, and horses; all in these superior custom-built facilities. This dynamic duo is very passionate about horses and is extremely excited to be a part of this remarkable equestrian haven. LBL takes pride in getting to know both resident’s and property owner’s wishes and desires for the community. They encourage them to express what is on their minds. This input will help to create the best possible community for all of the residents. There are over twenty five houses that have been built or are in the construction phase to date. Many folks will be living in their spectacular homes by year’s end. Soccer fields, basketball hoops, volleyball, tennis and badminton courts compliment this development. Their signature, in-ground lakeside heated pool is a great addition to the resort-style amenities. Custom built log pavilions with custom stone fireplaces are strategically placed to offer outdoor family and community areas that can be used for gatherings and entertainment. Log lined streets, rustic lampposts, flower boxes, and the newly opened Discovery Center offer a quality, pristine community in Middle Tennessee. Bill Dance, one of America’s top fishermen, Bassmaster, and superstar in the fishing world, has teamed up with LBL to build his Bill Dance Signature Lakes in the community. These lakes offer trophy fish habitats that serve the serious and recreational fisherman alike and work in harmony and balance with the surrounding land use. The vast investments made by LBL to stock and professionally manage the community’s lakes and ponds, coupled with the expertise and knowledge of Bill Dance and his organization excite both the novice and avid fishermen who reside at LBL. Of course, a resident can enjoy the many lakes at LBL in other ways, simply relaxing lakeside and reading a book, kayaking, bird watching, skipping rocks or just enjoying a hot summer day with a picnic from the General Store. Come enjoy the activities, the grandeur of LBL, and see why this premier community is being talked about in the media, by retirees and families seeking a quality, nature filled lifestyle.

A majestic, gated community sits high atop the hills of the Cumberland Plateau. It is quickly becoming known as Tennessee’s best kept retirement secret, Long Branch Lakes - a premier, gated lifestyle community. Recently featured in “Where to Retire” magazine, Long Branch Lakes (LBL) offers a high quality of life in a picturesque setting of abundant nature, great amenities, Bill Dance Signature Lakes, an Equestrian Center with full time, on-property equestrian managers, and activities within a community setting. LBL has been diligently carving, molding, and sculpting this remarkable community for nearly seven years now. Owners Edmond Cash, Andy Cash, and Rick Klewein’s desire to give residents a spectacular place to call home and their steadfast meticulous work and vision are paying off. Folks from all around the country seeking to downsize but not sacrifice their quality of living are finding out about the magic of LBL and the wonderful assets of Tennessee country living. This top notch community has been developed for nature lovers and offers an ideal home for families who are either looking to retire, buy a second home, a weekend home, or folks just looking to relocate. There is something for everyone, and the choices include homesites, the new Trout Hill Condominiums, and the Bunk Houses - ten home sites overlooking gorgeous pastures and vistas in LBL’s Equestrian Center. Since the printing of the 2010 Fall Creek Falls Visitor Guide, much has happened at LBL. The long awaited General Store is nearing completion and hopes are to have it operational by summer 2010. The Long Branch Lakes General Store will offer a community spirit and a gathering place for residents and visitors alike. It will be the heart of the community. The General Store will offer provisions such as milk, meats, dairy and staples needed to cook wonderful meals for family and guests. It will also offer the daily necessities such as freshly brewed coffee and tea. The General Store will also have signature homemade jellies and jams, local produce, gift items, and local crafts. The full-service restaurant will make hanging out for lunch, dinner, or one of the many planned community events such as local music, art events, guest speakers, and gettogethers part of the wonderful LBL lifestyle. It will also be a great place to get an ice cream for you and your grandchildren after lazing by the in-ground lakeside pool - one of Long Branch Lakes’ wonderful resort-style amenities. Some other exciting news is the progress of the Trout Hill Condominiums - 64 luxury condominiums for residents desiring the lake-side living of LBL without the maintenance and worry of a much larger living space. The Trout Hill Condominiums have their own entrance surrounded by woodlands and lakes, offering such pleasures as a pool, recreation area and a lakefront dock for fishing and canoe and kayak launching; plus use of the full amenities of the LBL sprawling 5,000 acres development. At press time, LBL is working on pouring the second floor of the Trout Hill Condominiums and hopes to have the first residents

River near the Smith and Jackson County lines. The creek took its name from a battle defeat in 1786 between John Peyton and his party against the Indians and it is part of Cordell Hull Lake. Cordell Hull Lake is about 64 miles long with 300 miles of shoreline, and was named after Cordell Hull, Father of the United Nations and longest-serving Secretary of State (holding the position for 11 years (1933-1944) during the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 for his role in establishing the United Nations). This Corps of Engineers Lake is beautiful and known for its striped and rock bass. It is the last lock before you get to the Great Loop whose waterways can take you to the Gulf of Mexico or north into the Great Lakes. Allen and Carolyn Vires got tired of corporate America and decided to take a leap of faith and embark on another business or a marina. They found Defeated Creek Marina online, bought the marina, and moved from the great north of Minnesota in 2004. They have loved every minute of it and really enjoy the friendly people, the temperate winters, the beautiful warm summers, and the opportunity to make family vacations extra memorable with their great service. They rent cabins, pontoons and ski boats with ideal set up with Defeated Creek Campground adjacent to the marina. The campground has 156 campsites, a great swimming area, picnic shelters, tennis and volleyball courts, mountain biking, and a fantastic moderate hiking trail named Bearwaller Gap and is about 6.2 miles long each way and hugs the mountainside offering some stunning views of Cordell Hull Lake. Defeated Creek Marina has about 40 acres to roam. There is really something different to do everyday. The marina is also home to several sailboats which you can often see sailing in the clear blue waters. Customer service is important to Allen and Carolyn.

Prime Time at the “Lick” in Flynn’s Lick is at Clipper’s - the place to be on the 1st Saturday of the month for Prime Rib, delectable Shrimp Chowder, and live music. Fred and JoAnn Campbell wanted to combine their love of cooking, JoAnn’s career as a stylist for 37 years, and meeting people in the Jackson County area, so they bought a convenience store between Granville and Gainesboro. They named their place Clipper’s, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It has evolved into THE gathering place.

Spotlight on Granville 0
One of my favorite day trips while visiting the Center Hill Lake region is to a quaint, lovingly restored town called Granville which is located about 30 miles north of the Smithville area. Granville is a vibrant old riverboat town that sits beside another small lake - Cordell Hull Lake. Their wealth of history is showcased in a small museum which is staffed by local folks that love to share the history of Granville. Back in its heyday, Granville was a bustling riverboat town consisting of over 600 families, who made their living off of the fertile land, the riverboat trade, and local commerce. Today, it has been revitalized by numerous volunteers and families that have come back to their roots following careers in larger metropolitan areas. One such couple is a prominent, yet humble businessman and his wife, Mr. Randall and Peggy Clemons. The heartbeat of the community is the T.B. Sutton Store (931.653.4151) which serves as the general store, selling clothing, gift items, candies, and books. It also showcases the Upper Cumberland Arts Alliance (UCAA) artists’ work in the gallery upstairs. One of the biggest draws is their Saturday night bluegrass, folk, and country music performances which generally feature local musicians, yet occasionally spotlight headliners out of Nashville. This coupled with their family style, down home country meals make this is a great evening out for friends, families, and groups. The word is getting out about Granville’s “Corner Stage” and reservations are recommended to enjoy this excellent evening of music and delicious home cooking in this great resort town. Granville has many festivals throughout the year, including their Heritage Days in May and bluegrass festival in the summer. Folks from all around come out to enjoy this friendly river town, stay at one of the quaint bed and breakfasts available or down at Granville Marina & Café or Defeated Creek Marina in one of their cabins or campground. There are several gift stores, including the Granville Gifts and Bed & Breakfast, located nearby the granddaddy, the old T.B. Sutton Store. On one occasion while visiting the old general store, we had the pleasure of observing Mr. David Sharp practicing his wood crafting skills for those that stopped by. He does a beautiful job. The Granville Museum showcases the history of this remarkable town. In October, you can enjoy the Journey Stories Exhibit, which celebrates its grand opening on October 2nd at 10:00 a.m. as part of a special ceremony during the Granville Fall Celebration. Journey Stories is a Museum on Main Street project organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. This unique exhibit tells the story of courage, new beginnings, adventure, fun and freedom that has happened since the discovery of America. Many expeditions have taken place since that time ranging from the movements of the first settlers, the Gold Rush, advent of different modes of transportation, to those brought on by vacations, the search for freedom, and much more. The exhibit will be open Wednesday through Saturday, from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM (CST) October 2 – November 13, 2010. Admission is FREE.
