Knoxville Daily Photo will post one photo per day taken from the Knoxville/Knox County, Tennessee area. Knoxville is the city of my birth, the place where I work, and the largest city near our hometown. It's a wonderful community in which to raise our family. It's really a beautiful place . . . . at least I think so.

I am not a professional photographer; I call myself a point & shoot photographer. I have had a genuine love for and interest in photography since childhood. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix S600 ~ which I love for many reasons that I won't list here. Sometimes I use my old camera which is a Nikon Coolpix 5900.

Photography is something that I enjoy immensely. My photographs & albums are treasured above all other material things I own. The memories that are captured and preserved through my camera are so precious.

I am glad that I have discovered City Daily Photo and started a photo blog. It's an honor to share my little corner of the world with those who find themselves here. Enjoy looking around my blog, and welcome to all who visit.

Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant

If you like down-home, family-style, country cookin' like your mama or grandma used to make back in the good ol' days.....then do I have a restaurant for you! The Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant is located at the Apple Barn in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge near the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee.

I love the look of the place. I bet it has some great cooking for a cold day.

Rambling Round said...

What a great place. I love the apple decoration, and the food sounds like food that I like to eat.

Hilda said...

I love how it looks! Do they let guests just sit on the porch? It looks like a lovely place to watch nothing in particular.

JM said...

This is so invinting! What a lovely building! I would definitely come inside.

Hope said...

Hilda...yes, you may sit on the porch and relax! In fact, we spent some time on the porch ourselves!

Hope said...

This building was a former farmhouse that families lived in....and it was converted into a restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is broken up into rooms just as a house would be. So it is a very cozy and quieter dining experience. Still family style though....lots of families with children!

Lois said...

We have a similar restaurant here that used to be an old farmhouse. This sounds like a great place!

Boise Diva said...

I want to go there for breakfast!

Tanya said...

What a great looking place, love the photo Hope :)

I'm convinced that if I ever visit Knoxville, I'd have to pack elastic waisted sweats because I'd do nothing but eat at all these yummy places you post. Let's just say I'd come home with more baggage than I started with. If you know what I mean.

I'll bet they can make a mean bowl of cheese grits!

You captured the homey feel of this place so well.
