Property description

If you are wanting to "go to the Mountains," the Waterfall House: "Falling Waters-Rising Spirits" is the rental property for you and your family and friends.

This modern 2500 square foot, two-story home sits on seven secluded, wooded acres with a creek descending down an 50 foot cascading waterfall! The waterfall is "Lillian Cascade", named for the daughter of John Moffit, the town's founder.

Enjoy this scenic view along with gorgeous sunrises from a large two-level deck overlooking the bluff and gorge.

The site is on Monteagle Mountain, the highest point between Chicago and Miami on the south Cumberland Plateau of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The town is located 90 miles east of Nashville, 50 miles from Chattanooga, TN and 170 miles from Atlanta on I-24. It is six miles from the University of the South at Sewanee.

The spacious home is decorated with much original art and local area crafts. The cathedral ceiling living room and the 20 foot by 20 foot den with fireplace are perfect spaces for entertaining, fellowship and corporate retreats or training.

The two loft bedrooms have five twin beds sharing a full bath. The main level master suite(king bed) features its own bath and French doors to the back deck. The den has a daybed and queen sleeper sofa and utilizes a large half bath.

There is a modern galley kitchen with all amenities of a "home away from home." The proximity to the University affords intellectual, theatrical, academic, and artistic functions.

The South Cumberland Recreational Park (only five minutes away) gives you thousands of acres of pristine wilderness featuring hiking, rock climbing, wildlife, waterfalls and "ole swimming holes." Breathtaking whitewater rafting on the Ochoe, Nantahala, and Chattuga Rivers is but a two hour drive.

NO pets. NO Smoking. No children under the age of ten. Year round availability. See Great rates below. When you call, say "I saw your home on VRBO."

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Monteagle:
I felt that I was "buying a national park.!" The waterfall is a feature like no other I have ever seen. To think I own such a unique spot is thrilling. It affords me the opportunity to renew and refresh. Thus the subname: "Falling waters. Rising spirits." I have been coming to Monteagle Sunday School Assembly ( in town) for 40 years. My family owns a cottage there. But the Waterfall House gives me my own hideaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
To sit on the 2-level deck across the back of the house and listen to the waterfall renews my spirit. It will do the same for you!
