The two families are like night and day. Your family is a little more laid-back--nature lovers who are content to just sit out on a cabin deck and take in the scenery for hours on end. Your sister's family, however, is a different story. Real Type-A personalities who like to go, go, go constantly, and they never seem to survive very long without a Blackberry, a cell phone or a laptop. So how do such two very different families share a vacation rental? This four-bedroom cabin you found in Wears Valley
has been the answer. Your brood has loved spending time looking at the mountains and taking long, relaxing soaks in the hot tub, while the other gang has kept in motion by playing pool and air hockey in the game room. And the wireless Internet service has kept them all connected to their precious electronic devices. Not that you haven't found common ground. Everyone seemed to agree that cooking out the gas grill and gathering around the outdoor fire pit at night was a good idea. And you were even surprised that your sister was able to put her Blackberry down long enough to take in a show at the Comedy Barn Theater
. Naturally, though, she booked everyone's tickets online.
