Decatur house description

Behind the simple rustic exterior of this Amish-built home, lies a beautifully refurbished interior, with modern amenities including WiFi. This house, set in 130 acres of peace and tranquility, is the ideal place to unwind and refresh in the natural beauty of Southeast Tennessee.

This five-bedroom home has a large, open, kitchen-dining-sitting area and two full bathrooms - with travertine stone floors. Upstairs there is an additional sitting area to read, chat or play games. The house sits on a hill, between fields and woodland, with verandas on two floors to admire the views and take in a sunset.

You might choose to linger over an old-fashion breakfast, stroll along the nature trails, swim in the saltwater pool, picnic beside the creek, or perhaps spend a relaxing evening around a campfire. and enjoy the brilliant starry skies.

You may see sheep, llamas, horses, goats, alpacas, ducks and geese as you stroll around the land. From the veranda you may spot the deer grazing in the morning as well as a variety of other local wildlife. It is a remarkable area for bird watching too!

We are always happy to work with you to provide what is needed to make your stay just right.

Located in Decatur halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga, we're surrounded by an abundance of sightseeing possibilities. You could go on a fishing expedition at nearby Watts Bar Lake, hike around Ruby Falls or Fall River Falls, catch a concert on the river in Chattanooga, visit the Knoxville Zoo or the Womens' Basketball Hall of Fame, play at Dollywood or enjoy the scenic wonder of Smoky Mountain National Park...to name a few day trips. Whatever your fancy, there is an abundance of nearby activities to choose from.

Visit our website to see more details through the link below the calendar.

It’s a special place for couples, friends and families to spend quality time together.
