A Little About Us
We are the Turleys,
My Husband and I have been married since September 2007. We have created 4 little humans that keep our life wild and busy. Our oldest child Leia, is 8 then Brice 6, Kate 4 and our baby Grace is 3. Yes we own a TV and no I don’t know what I was thinking ;). We both come from large families and wanted to have the same… Well not as large, Brian had 8 siblings and I have 5.
We moved to Tennessee from Arizona in 2011 for a job. My husband’s friend opened a zip line in Gatlinburg TN. We had both never heard of the place but we were up for a change and an adventure so we took the leap. Boy, was it a change! We moved in July and I had never seen so much green in my life. Everyday I was blown away by the trees and the mountains. The pace of life here is much slower and the people much friendlier. We have fallen in love with the Smokies.
We brought on Brian’s brother Jay to help with the day to day details, making it even more of a family business. With all our siblings and parents out west it has been so amazing having Jay, his wife Kat and their adorable 2-yr-old daughter here. There is just something about having family close that makes life better.
From the time we moved here till we decided to create Long Springs, my husband worked and I was a stay-at-home Mom. It has always been our dream to have a family business that we could use as a way to spend more time together. We have poured a ton of time, thought, energy and love into this project… maybe a few tears as well. We hope everyone loves it as much as we do.
We are hoping our guests find a beautiful, inviting environment where they can enjoy all that this wonderful area has to offer. We hope you find your stay relaxing and fun. We are hoping to continue to add more and more amenities to give our guests the best vacations ever.
