I want to share an awesome Blog that my sweet friend, January Alexander, owner of
J. Alexander Home wrote about her recent stay at our newest cabin,
Kennedy Cabin at High Falls.
My view-Part 1 of 2
Hi there! I wanted to write a personal note tonight and share a very special place with you! This folks is the amazing view my family and I experienced last weekend in Alabama while set up at the Vintage Pickin Barn Sale. This view is what we enjoyed down a tiny, one lane, backroad leading out atop a mountain in the countriest of country...let me introduce The Kennedy Cabin!!! The Kennedy is one of 5 beautiful antique log cabins restored by my sweet friend, Karen Tillery of Restoration Log Cabin Rentals! I have had the joy of staying in 2 of the 5 and let me just tell you...if you want to experience God's finest gifts...visit one of these cabins! From my first trip, my heart and soul were filled with peace and tranquility from what these logs bring! Take a sneak peek from our weekend and you'll know why!
Karen and I have become great friends and our passions are identical! Her love for design and detail are cream of the crop! We literally call ourselves soul sisters and are so excited to have met when we did...we have so many ideas for the future!! Karen not only started her cabin rental business several years back, but her love for cabins even connected her to become a featured designer on the popular show Barn Wood Builders, with Mark Bowe!! Mark even built one of her homes...so cool! ❤️ After growing up in an antique log cabin myself and even buying one of my own, I totally understand and appreciate all the joy and beauty they bring! Take a peek around the Kennedy and stay tuned for PART 2 of this adventure!! HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT to share with you! Until then enjoy the view,
XoXo January Johnston Alexander
Hi, I’m Karen Tillery, I am a Christ following wife and mom of four, a log cabin loving-- designer and decorator, and the crazy queen of up-cycling everything possible. I am a Birmingham born southern girl and an Auburn University graduate in Graphic Design. My career has spanned the gamut from an illustrator and designer with Oxmoor House Publishing, to a full time stay-at home mom and part time art teacher to owner of Restoration Log Cabin Rentals in North Alabama. My business combines my passion for history and construction with my design skills by renovating and restoring 1800’s log cabins. My formal training in regards to color, balance and space partnered with 24 years of renovation and construction experience and 12 plus years of reinventing 1800’s log cabins, have given me a special insight into designing living spaces that are not only functional but comfortable and inviting. My fine art and illustration skills have given me the ability to draw the concepts of my designs so that other people can see my vision before it is even a reality. When you love your job as much as I do it hardly even seems like work!
