      Call the corporate office. Really, setting up new page simply will lead them to hack THAT one.
      (650) 543-4800 INSIST on talking to customer relations or someone.. have your id for you page (ie your link address) and tell them you have spent a week with NO RESPONSE!!!

          Hello GSMV,
          As a side note for when your page is back up (sorry for all your troubles on that), the break in security likely came from clicking on some link posted to your facebook page. All of the spam that was showing up was from a place called which is the likely culprit. Sometimes when clicking on those things, it asks for your permission to allow that site to make certain changes or allow access to your facebook. Always deny those. :)
          Hope to see you back up soon as I’m trying to plan a couples retreat for mid September.

          Best of Luck.

          I love the pictures. My mom is going down hill since my dad passed away. She’s depressed all the time and the least little thing makes her cry. We almost lost her a few months ago and her health is still not what it should be. She will be 79 years of age, June 11th. I would love to be able to take her to the mountains. I took her and my dad about 10 years ago, they loved it. Whomever wins, I hope it is somebody that really deserves a nice, relaxing getaway. Good luck to all and God Bless!

    • Kim says:

      I have been wanting to come to the Smokey Mountains since September of 1994. You might think that it is funny that I specify a month and year. Well, my brother and sister n law went there for their honeymoon. They took a video camera and when they returned I watched the video. I have been wanting to visit that area ever since. However, my husband is afraid of heights and he will not drive there because of the mountains. Luckily, I have a best friend (Rebecca) who will do anything with me! I would LOVE to win this contest! THANK YOU so much for the opportunity!

    • Judy Walker says:

      I like this sounds like very much fun

    • pam Blankenship says:

      I haven’t been to Tennessee in years, I love the state. Me and my late husband used to go. He died 3 1/2 years ago suddenly and I haven’t have a vacation in over 10 years.

    • nicole says:

      I would like to be entered in your drawings please :-)

  • Darla says:

    Thank you for trying! I look forward to following you again!

  • Cindy says:

    I don’t see the new fb page. When/how will we know it’s up & running?

  • Amanda says:

    It is so sad that this has happened. I knew that something had to be wrong when there were so many weird posts. I hope you can get it fixed or get a new one up and running soon,.

  • Sheryl says:

    So sorry this happened to y’all! What a pain! I have liked the new page and posted the link on my wall–I have several friends who also are fans of your page. :)

  • Cathie says:

    When will new page be available?

  • Cathie says:

    I tried it but it’s not bringing it up in the search on Facebook. Only one that comes up is Friends of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Tried on my phone. I will ck later on my laptop. Thanks.

  • Melissa says:

    Nevermind, I found it! lol

  • Teri says:

    Can you post a link to the new fan page? Can’t find it.

    • It is called Friends Of Great Smoky Mountain Vacations… you might have to scroll down a little to find it in the search as there are several with Great Smoky Mountain in the title. The thumbnail photo is the same bear picture that we had before… Thank you!! Rebecca

  • Karla says:

    Could you please post the url to your new facebook page? No matter how much I search on the new name, I can’t find your page. Part of the issue is that facebook now uses “Friends of” as a search term.


  • Carla says:

    Instead of “Friends of”, make the new page REAL Great Smoky Mountain Vacations. That clarifies it better.

  • Kathy says:

    GSM, I subscirbe to on FB. It has great security info and ways to recover pages, contact info etc. I think it might be helpful to you. So sorry this happened. Love your page/site! should we unsubscribe from the page?

  • Lanie says:

    When searching for the new page, the new FB graphic thing is very confusing. I finally found the page, here is the link:

  • Sharon Gerstman says:

    Would love to go back to the Smoky Mountains! It is beautiful and I am sure the fall colors now are awesome! Thank you for the chance to win a vacation!

  • Anna says:

    I went to the old page and reported it. Hope that helps get it down. I certainly don’t want to see those kind of pics when looking for smoky mtn info and doubt anyone else does. Good luck with the new page.

  • Arlinda Clair says:

    I have always wanted to go to a cabin, but we have never had the money. I am disabled at a young age of 39 and have been this way for the past 2 years. We have a 3 year old son, which I have to help with all the time. My health keeps going downhill fast. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but we would love to take a vacation. My husband and I have been married 18 years in November (30th) and we never had a honeymoon. Plus on July 5th we lost my daddy-in-law to cancer. This has been a rough year for us. I spent most of the year taking care of my daddy-in-law despite my own health problems. I have put my own health on the backburner and it is catching up with me. My husband is having problems with rapid heart beat and the doctors are not sure why. They believe it is stress related. Really I don’t know why either one of us would be under stress. Our son has a limited vocabulary and is in speech, developmental, occupational, & physical therapy four days a week. They think he has Autism. Like I said I don’t know why we would be under any stress.

  • Stacey Logan says:
