165TH INFANTRY, RAINBOW
DIVISION, SOLDIER AND POET,
AUTHOR OF "TREES", BORN IN
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., DECEMBER
6, 1886, KILLED IN ACTION IN
FRANCE JULY 30, 1918.
THIS MEMORIAL WAS INITIATED
BY BOZEMAN BULGER POST,
VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS
AND WAS SELECTED BY THE
U. S. FOREST SERVICE.
This simple biography of Joyce Kilmer is engraved on a
bronze plaque in the heart of the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.
Joyce Kilmer was educated at Rutgers College and Columbia University,
where he graduated in 1908. He taught high school for a year, and then
launched out on his writing career. He took up editorial and journalistic
work in New York City, rising rapidly to prominence as an accomplished
journalist. From 1913 to 1918, he served on the staff of the New York
Times and contributed mean-while to many magazines.
It is as a poet, however, that Joyce Kilmer is chiefly remembered. His
love of the common and beautiful things, especially in Nature, found a
simple and delicate expression in verse.
Through most of Kilmer's poems and articles runs a strong religious
thread. There is a deep, underlying sense of humility, and a worship of
things simple and clean and eternal. He sensed the dignity and the
God-given unity of all living things, whether man or tree.
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet' flowing breast.
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray.
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair.
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
From - Trees and Other Poems by Joyce Kilmer

The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest
This Forest is one of the most impressive remnants of our Nation's virgin
wilderness. Here, where the headwaters of great rivers rise, immense trees
grow in the natural set- ting that was theirs when this region was the
unexplored hunting ground of the Cherokees.
Many of the huge trees are hundreds of years old. Some of them are twenty
feet around the base and more than a hundred feet high. They include
yellow poplar, hem- lock, sycamore, basswood, dogwood, beech, several
species of oak, and many others.
In addition to the trees, there is an out- standing variety of shrubs,
vines, ferns, mosses, lichens, liverworts, and herbaceous plants. In the
spring wild flowers take ad vantage of sunlight which will not be avail
able after the hardwood trees are covered with shade producing leaves.
Rhododendron, mountain laurel and azalea are to be found in bloom in the
late spring and early summer.
Though this forest is undisturbed by man, it is ever-changing. Some trees
die so others may live. Many species of vegetation would be eliminated
without occasional openings in the treetops to admit sunlight. Insects and
plant diseases take their toll At many places on the forest floor you will
see remnants of massive American chestnut trees which, prior to 1925,
composed a large part of the timber stand. The chestnut blight disease,
accidentally introduced from Asia, has now killed all of the mature trees.
Occasional sprouts may still be found.
The memorial tract is maintained in its primitive and natural state. No
plants living or dead may be cut or removed.
JOYCE KILMER SLICKROCK WILDERNESS
The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is part of the 14,000-acre Joyce
Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness. This area lies in the watersheds of Little
Santeetlah and Slickrock creeks, which are separated by the ridge between
Stratton Bald and Haoe. There are more than 60 miles of hiking trails in
this wilderness that follow ridge tops or cool mountain streams. Hunting
and fishing are permitted in accordance with state laws.

I am often away from home. Kindly leave a message

please note: We had motorcycle riders stay with us several times, but
some find the road to the cabin somewhat steep. The parking area is not
large and it may be difficult to turn a trailer around.
We are just
about to leave the cabin and want to thank you for a wonderful stay!
The cabin was just as beautiful as advertised and provided us with a
peaceful vacation surrounded by the beauty of the Smokies. We took
advantage of the nearby watersports, hiking and the Cherokee museum,
and it was wonderful to come back and relax in such a beautiful
setting every night.
Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful cabin!! Best,
Chrystal and Douglas, Nashville TN 7/12
The stay was
wonderful! The location of the cabin was so close to the drop in
zone for white water rafting on Nantahala! Thanks again. Bruce,
Huntsville AL 7/12
We enjoyed our
stay very much. The cabin was neat and very clean. It was very
useful having internet service available – this helped us research
and plan some activities. It was also great having a Jacuzzi tub as
an alternative to the hot tub. We would definitely rent this cabin
again. Thanks, Scott & April. Greensboro NC 7/12
We had a very
peaceful visit to A Mountain Memory. We loved the proximity to the
rivers and lakes and took advantage of everything we could. The
cabin was very clean and we had everything we needed. Thank you for
making this an easy rental experience.
Matt and Sarah. Marshall NC 5/12
This was the
BEST anniversary my husband and I have ever had!! The cabin was
spotless and cared for all of our needs. My husband even asked me to
make sure we get the same cabin again next year too. The directions
were awesome as they took us straight to the cabin. The scenery was
AMAZING, and the river was so relaxing we didn’t want to come home…lol.
Thanks again for providing us with a vacation we will never forget!!
Star, Greensboro NC 6/12
My husband and I
stayed in A Mountain Memory from May 30 through June 3 and we
absolutely loved the cabin. Everything about it was perfect! When it
came time to check-out we did not have any cash on us so we could
not leave a tip for Bess. Can you please tell me where we may send
it? She did a wonderful job and we would like for her to know that.
Jennifer, Atlanta GA 6/3/12
Walt, YES! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!!!!!! Thank you so much for
everything. We cannot wait to return. It was the much needed break/R&R
that we needed. We couldn't have found a better place in the mountains
to stay. Everything we needed was right there at our finger tips,
including the handheld mixer! Even the wooden furniture was amazing,
down to the kitchen chairs! I hope the cabin was found acceptable and
clean. We went through and tried our best to leave it how we found it.
Thanks again, Tiffany and Steven ****Things we loved: The beds and
pillows were SO comfortable! Everything was so quaint and cute,
definitely very clean! The hot tub was AMAZING! I'd have to say my
absolute favorite was waking up to the fresh mountain air and having all
those windows to gaze out of with my cup of coffee! HOW RELAXING!!!!! I
swear we can't wait to return!
We had a
wonderful time at the house. It was just what we needed, The
place was very clean just an overall nice place to get a way
for a while. Thank you, Cody, Asheboro NC 3/12
We had a
wonderful time. A Mountain Memory was so cozy, we felt very
much at home the moment we walked in the door. The beds
were amazingly comfortable. We will definitely be renting
again! Mark & Wendy, Debary FL 1/12
enjoy renting ‘A Mountain Memory’ last week. Thanks! The
cabin was very comfortable. Loved the fireplace, Jacuzzi
tub and the hot tub. I was impressed by the nice
furnishings and appliances. I really appreciated finding
the cupboards stocked so well with dishes, pans, etc. I
came with a cake on hand to make and expected to hand mix
it, but was very happy to find the electric mixer in the
kitchen instead! I appreciated finding extra blankets too.
The TV set-up is also very nice… we really enjoyed the
Direct TV, as that’s not something we have at home. We were
surprised to find a DVD player and wireless internet as
well, because I don’t think those were listed in the
amenities. All around, a great vacation… Very relaxing!!!
Sheila & John, Piedmont SC 12/11
Joe and I enjoyed our stay. The cabin was outstanding! We have told
family and friends about romanticcabin.com already. We certainly
plan on using you again. We have added you to our favorites list.
Thanks for a wonderful comfortable and beautiful place to stay for
Karan, Summerville SC 8/11
was very nice! The pictures from the web site did little justice
to the actual cabin. Other then the food we had to buy on the
way in, everything was there. It was very clean. I was worried
being a little close to the road if you could hear the cars and
trucks but actually it was very quite at night. Overall it was
very relaxing and cozy! The spa was clean and did take a little
longer then expected to warm to desired temperature but once all
set up it was the best feature! I also enjoyed having a
washer/dryer combo there on site, it made our stay very smooth
and plus I hate traveling back with smelly clothes. Thanks for
the experience! The cabin was an easy find thanks to your
directions. We will definitely be planning another trip in
months/years to come. Thanks again!
David, Fort Worth TX 5/11
We had an
enjoyable and memorable stay at Mountain Memory. The cabin was
meticulously clean, quaint, and beautifully decorated. For us
Floridians, it was cold, but you would never know it from inside our
cabin. The central heat supplied us with ample amount of warm air,
making us feel all cozy inside. We had a great time and look forward
to visiting again soon. Sincerely, Jeremy and Lori, Bradenton, FL
Walt, we had a wonderful vacation! "A Mountain Memory" was much
more than we expected for the price!!!! Our boys absolutely loved
having a loft bedroom to themselves and their own bathroom. My
husband and I drank our coffee on the deck each morning, while listening
to the sounds of nature and enjoying the cool mountain breeze. Thank you
so much! Josh and Bev. Kentucky.
Our stay at the cabin was beyond my expectations. The pictures on the web
some how don't do the cabin justice. My wife and I were both very
impressed with how nice the cabin is. It was a truly wonderful stay that
we hope to repeat in the future. Thank ya'll so much! Sincerely, Noah &
Hannah p.s. See ya'll again soon!
My wife and I
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at your Mountain Memory Home. The
pictures really don't do your cabins justice once you cross the
threshold. We literally had to force ourselves out of the cabin it
was so nice. We have not decided were we are going this year for
our anniversary but your place by far has been the best and well worth
the 6hr drive from Greensboro, NC. Thanks again, JD
Your cabin was
absolutely lovely and made our stay in North Carolina very, very
pleasurable. Very clean and well equipped and the location was just
superb for the things we wanted to do. My husband took his motorbike
with us so we enjoyed many days of riding the tail of the dragon and
even took several day trips to Tennessee. We rafted on the Nantalaha
River several times, took a few day hikes on the AT, and did a few of
the very challenging trails at Tsali. We also had a lot of fun visiting
Asheville and the smaller towns. Great vacation! A fabulous vacation and
we would love the rent your cabin on the lake next time. Bobbie What a
fantastic way to spend a honeymoon! The cabin was more than we
could have imagined. Immaculate, romantic, completely relaxing and
inviting. The decor is perfect and the Jacuzzi and hot tub, well,
what can we say? Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this
lovely retreat. We hope to celebrate many anniversaries and
special occasions in your "cabin in the sky". With warmest regards,
James and JoAnne
I just wanted to
say that my boyfriend and I loved "A Mountain Memory". The pictures
you had on your website really sold me on this cabin and once we got there
we were not disappointed. Thanks again and we will definitely be back!
Walt, Our family had a
great week! The cabin was much more than we had expected. So wonderful!
Everything from the towels to the hot tub were "top of the line". We will
certainly be back. Take care and thanks again. The Cockrell clan
Shari and I had the
most wonderful and beautiful time during our stay! We said over and over again
to each other that our "Mountain Memory" was the best vacation either of us have
ever had! We enjoyed it so much that we never left the driveway in the car
during our entire time there! We did take a walk up the road (found out how out
of shape we were...) but the rest of the time we just relaxed and enjoyed our
time together in "A Mountain Memory." We are seriously considering renting there
again. Thank You. John and Shari
Which is it? Smoky or Smokey?
We spell it both ways on this web site. So, if you're searching for
honeymoon, anniversary or family vacation rental accommodations and log homes,
cabins and cottages for rent in the "Smokey" mountains, you'll be sure to find
us. Both are common spellings. But if you want to be correct about it, spell it
the way the National Park Service does — the Great Smoky Mountains.
Smokey the Bear, on the other hand, spells his name the other way.
And if you're wondering about "Smokeys", "Smokys" or "Smokies,"
they're all correct.
you searched for Ashville NC, you're not alone. Asheville North Carolina
may be the only city name that is not spelled "Ashville".
