Collinsville cabin description

This cabin will remind you of a simple way of life from times past! 'It is comfortable and peaceful here', said a recent renter. The front porch across the full length of the house makes a great place to sip coffee, relax, and listen to nature. It's unique location allows for retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life! You will love the small but well stocked pond that is within 30 feet of the front porch and a second pond only 100 yards away! A 4lb bass was caught two weeks ago (October 2010). The path behind the cabin leads to a small creek where deer and turkey are often seen; this is also a great place for a nice picnic or even horse back riding! For those who enjoy fosil finding and arrow head collecting you will enjoy exploring around the creek banks.

Rent our Cozy Cabin and you will truly be refreshed and blessed!

              About: My parents built this little cabin on the land my Dad grew up on! My Dad grew up dirt poor, but managed to put my sister and I through college without borrowing a dime! The cabin is built much the same way, no loans, no extras, just the basics with lots of hard work and dedication! The planks on the outside are from two large pine trees we cut off the land, and the pond is feed by a well that has not gone dry in over 70 years! This is just our little bit of heaven we hope others enjoy!

              Why Collinsville:
              This property has been in our family for more than 90 years!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              This property is centrally located if you want to enjoy areas from Chattanoga Tennessee to Talladega Alabama! One of the best things for summer and fall is Little River Canyon! It's the largest gorge east of the Mississippi!
