"Dear Arizona Jane, Thank you for sharing this
wonderful cabin with us! It's exactly what my friend and I were looking for. My favorite part of the day was sitting
on the side porch at sunrise, wrapped in a quilt, enjoying my coffee. The peacefulness of this place is like none
I've ever known. It will be difficult to return to the hustle and bustle of my daily life, But until then,
I will enjoy my last day of peacefulness, and look forward to returning in the future." Massachusetts and Vermont
Arizona Jane, Tom and I had a wonderful experience. The Cabin is wonderful. If we get a chance @ another vacation
- we will be back! Hugs!" - North Carolina
"This cabin was exactly what I was looking for when I planned
my get away. I told everyone that I was running away to the mountains, no kids, no husband and no dogs. This is
just what I needed. I love this cabin and will be back soon as I can get away. Maybe next time I'll bring my husband,
maybe. haha. I tried to leave the cabin as clean as I found it. It had everything I needed and was very clean.
Thank you so much." - South Carolina
"Arizona Jane, thank you for everything. Our stay was truly magical!
We loved it! So peaceful and cozy. We plan on coming back next October, God willing. Love your mountains,
love your community. God Bless you and the Cherokee reservation. Just want to reiterate that the time at the cabin was
special to us. It is a special place with no signs out front to advertise like an average tourist place would do - as
the people whom stay in your cabin are not average tourists. We would like to think of ourselves as the people whom
were given the gift of being able to stay in your cabin. God is so good. I loved just sitting out on the porches
or around the fireplace in the evenings. The Smokies were totally awesome. Being from the islands, it was a welcome
change. Friends Forever." - The Cayman Islands
"Dear Arizona Jane - We just wanted to thank you so very
much for sharing your log cabin with us. We have to go back to "Reality" tomorrow and we'd rather stay right
here! I know we'll be back, we needed a relaxing time away and we had it, but not long enough. I was in Cherokee
as a kid and had good memories, now I have even more. The cabin has everything and hope to be back very soon! Thanks!"
"Dear Arizona Jane - My husband and I truly enjoyed our visit. You have provided every need
thinkable. We utilized every room including both porches and still had a great time sight seeing. It
was a perfectly relaxing weekend. We would certainly enjoy another visit!" - South Carolina
- My fiance & I were wanting to find a cabin in the mountains to relax for a few days before we went to visit family in
NC for Thanksgiving - We found more than we even hoped for in this wonderful cabin. From the first step that we took
into the cabin, we were absolutely in love with it. It has such a good feel to it and we can't wait to get back
here. It has been so nice to have a place to drink coffee on the porches, light a fire & cook dinner & just
relax in general before the hustle & bustle that comes with a holiday with the family. I'm positive that
our time with family will be great, but I know for a fact that the part I talk more about with friends and family will
be our days at Dancing Stones cabin. Thank you for your hospitality & warmth. It was a pleasure meeting
you and sharing a piece of this land. Hope to see you & the cabin again soon." - Kentucky
have asked for a better honeymoon, Arizona! Cherokee is such a peaceful place in the off-season. We came with
big ideas about long hiking trips and driving the winding mountain roads, but in the end we found ourselves snuggled up close
to the fire, playing games (Ruk-Shuk is so much fun!!) and exploring the town instead. We had a blast. We're already
trying to figure out when we can come back again! This cabin is enchanting, and it will surely call us back soon. That,
or a longing for fry-bread! Thank you so much for sharing this getaway with us. Needless to say, it has been an
adventure worth remembering. We'll be back soon!" (Created Charcoal Drawing of Elk & Mountains - now framed

"Dear Arizona Jane, We absolutely love your rustic log cabin. Goldie,
she loved it too! Have never had a mini-vacation and felt totally at home. We loved listening to the rain and
slept like I have not in a long time. Can't wait to plan on coming back up here. This has inspired us to
start planning one for our new house back home. Need to downsize. This made us realize we could live full
time in a place just a tad larger that this cabin. I am sure you will see us soon and often, if you will have us back
again. P.S. Left a stone token of our Thanks on the mantle. In honor of "Dancing Stones cabin"
will bring a stone from our creek to add to the fountain out front next trip. Thanks again." - North Carolina
our last morning here, as the rain falls on the trees, our hearts are sad. Our trip here was special to us.
We have been together 5 years. This is our first real trip. We came to this wonderful place looking for rest and
a new connection. We have found that..the mountains call to our souls. We hope the next guest finds their quiet
in the mountains and a renewed sense of being as we have. This is a wonderful place. It will be hard to say goodbye
to the cabin. We will be back soon." - South Carolina
"When we planned this trip, it was an escape for
us. An escape to put our marital problems and family behind us. But it has turned out to be so much more.
It began 2 years ago....We were already on the mend before we got here, but "Dancing Stones" has re-energized us
and given us so much hope for the future. Thank You "Dancing Stones", we were divinely guided here and will
always have a love for this "Old Cabin." - Virginia
"After 10 years of dating, we decided to get married
on 10-10-10. We were looking for something real and intimate. We got so much more. The air, people, experiencing
the culture and the reservation has brought a new realization to us about the Indians and how they have protected their
world. We hope to come back with our family to make it that much more memorable. Thank you, Ms. Jane and her mother's
furry friends." - Tennessee
"We are from the Puget Sound North of Seattle. On a 3 week Hiatus from
work and have not turned on the Blackberry once! That alone is a treat. We flew into New Orleans, got a car and
have seen lots. Staying in State Parks that have cabins throughout Louisiana, Alabama, the Gulf Shores. Then to
Seminole Park in Georgia...From here, it's on to Nashville to see the Grand Ole Opry & George Jones. Will end up
flying home from Memphis, after seeing Graceland. Thank you very much! Weather has been spectacular and sitting
here on the porch of this Old Cabin smoking a fine cigar is a special way to see the sun go down in the Smoky Mountains.
Just say NO to cell phones." - Washington
"We just found this lovely book and wanted to share our thoughts
as well. We are here for New Year's Eve, but our first visit was a month ago when I found this cabin to spend a special
birthday night. It was all we dreamed of finding. We have been looking for a more rustic old fashioned cabin to
get away in and we were so glad to find Dancing Stones. Arizona Jane has made a lovely and peaceful Haven and I can
see why people who need healing would find their way here. For us, it was the beginning of a new adventure of a simpler
way to live & find relaxation..." - North Carolina
"Our Second Trip - We arrived here shortly after
a few days of snowfall. A white Christmas for sure & Cherokee had 10 inches. With snow still on the ground,
we were welcomed into an already warm & cozy cabin. With less than ideal weather outside, we were glad for the peace
& tranquility we find here in this Old Cabin. We love to wonder about the origins who lived within these original
walls. Rain did not totally deter us and we did venture out for a short trip to Mingus Mill & to explore a few shops
in town. But other than that, we find the quiet & even the sound of rain on the roof relaxing & just what we
need to "get away" and find healthy harmony. The stones and healing power of this room are a wonderful touch
and we know that others must love the quaint appeal of this place as much as we do. We plan to return in February."
- North Carolina
"Thank you, Arizona Jane for sharing the cabin with us. We have enjoyed our stay here and
have enjoyed exploring the area. Mingo Falls is definitely worth the climb, even for us 69 Year Olds! You have
made this "Old Cabin" into a peaceful and comfortable retreat." Florida
"We have two words
to describe "Dancing Stones" cabin. "Totally Awesome"!!! In this era of electronic dependence,
the week has been an absolute delight. This area reminds us of our childhoods in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.
So simple and relaxing yet so hard to find in our everyday lives. Thank you, Ms. Blankenship. We have enjoyed
this week tremendously." - North Carolina
"Dear Arizona, When we were looking for a place to stay near the
Smoky Mountains, we hoped we could find an authentic, rustic, secluded place that would allow us to be comfortable.
Your cabin turned out to be the perfect place. This has been a very special anniversary for us. Thank you for
helping to make this possible. We truly had a terrific time here. - Missouri
"Arizona Jane, We love your
place and your space. Our Anniversary was more that we had hoped for - and we had high expectations! The cabin,
the woods, the river, the mountains all made us feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you and we hope to be back soon."
"As a small token of my appreciation, I placed a flower (quilted dolly) on the mantle.
Something I pieced while enjoying the serenity of the side porch." - Kentucky
"We call our vacations
"The Gause Family Adventures", and this, by far, has been the best adventure yet. Starting with "The
Dancing Stones Cabin". We absolutely LOVE it. We figured if we were gonna stay in the mountains, we should
stay in a log cabin. This log cabin is so very real with 150 years of memories and stories, and now, it has a Gause
story. We can't seem to pick just one thing we especially loved about it, because we loved everything! As we ventured
out into Cherokee, we found more to take back to the cabin and talk about. The waterfalls were just beautiful and breathtaking.
We were in awe at the continuous and never ending mountains & streams & rivers. We have made plans to return
to Dancing Stones this fall. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us." - South Carolina
Arizona Jane, We wanted you to know this weekend in the cabin was perfect. We have not had any time alone for at least
15 years. We were so relaxed from this perfect atmosphere this cabin gives. Thank you for all that you and your
family have done to work and bring together the cabin for people such as us. In such a busy world that we live in it
is so nice to get away from it all and have a time to relax and heal. We look forward to bringing our family.
God Bless You and Your Family!" - Florida
"Jane, Thank you for a wonderful stay. It rained last night
and cooled down, so we lit a fire in the fireplace after all. The cabin is fascinatingly rustic, and clean & comfortable.
Thanks again." - Alabama
"Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin. We left a dragonfly by the stone fountain
as our way of Thanks." - Georgia
"Janie, Sorry I missed you. This cabin is the Best Place I have ever
stayed in. I will come back soon." - Florida
"Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cabin.
All the small personal things make it so enjoyable. I hope to come back soon." - South Carolina
cabin is so well equipped. I will always remember this vacation." - Florida
"We had a wonderful time
here and we can't wait to come back. This vacation was long overdue. Love this cabin. Thank you, Ms. Jane." - North Carolina
