"This house was the perfect place for the family together fora wedding. Everyone had enough space and it was fully equipped to accommodate a large rehearsal party. Everyone oohed and awed at the amenities. Even the large garage allowed for spillover with guests. It will be our go to place for the next big gathering!"

"Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at Trafalgar House in June. The scenic lake setting is beautiful and relaxing. It is tucked away in a quiet gated community, but with easy access to Sewanee, Monteagle, Chattanooga and the South Cumberland pocket wilderness areas. The house is immaculate and well appointed with many personal touches that make it feel like a "home away from home"... much better than a sterile hotel room. We enjoyed day hikes, Sewanee campus, and other local activities. But we also liked just relaxing at the house... playing games, teaching my grandson how to fish from the dock, etc. Lots of deer, birds, frogs, fish jumping in the lake and the biggest owl I have ever seen.
The houses are far enough apart that it feels like you have the place to yourself. It is much more than just a place to sleep. Plenty of great restaurants nearby (Pearl's, Ivy Wild, Crossroads, Mountain Goat Market & others), and a well-stocked kitchen for meals at home. The owner is extremely helpful and responds promptly. I am so glad we found this hidden gem! We have already made reservations for a return visit in October."

"This was our first stay at Lil Bear Cabin, although we have been to Monteagle/Sewanee many times. The location is very good - tucked away on a quiet street, but not too far from stores/restaurants. Our favorite part was the amazing view from the living room and deck - BEAUTIFUL! There is also a grill and hot tub (which we never used because it was very hot in July!). I was looking for a place that would allow pets, and the owner was wonderful about allowing us to have our 3 small dogs there (she is very dog friendly!). The cabin itself is rather small in size (as advertised, it is 1300 sq. ft), but it is cozy and comfortable for 2 adults (and 3 small dogs), and it is very-well appointed with furniture and amenities. The kitchen is user-friendly for 1 person, but it would be more of a challenge if 2 or more people were trying to cook and prepare a meal at the same time. Since it was just 2 adults, we never used the upstairs, so with the nice ramp from the driveway to the front door and being able to live on the main level, it was nice that I did not have any stairs for my bad knees to deal with ... but it does have a 3rd bedroom, 2nd bath, and loft upstairs! I have used VRBO and rental companies many times before, but I have never dealt with such a wonderful owner ... she was VERY prompt in her replies, responsive to my needs, and always courteous!! We will DEFINITELY return to Lil Bear! THANK YOU!"
