The Hawks Nest Log Cabin was hand-built by our uncle and cousin from cedar trees on the lot about 35 years ago. The cabin is small, but cozy and comfortable. It's perfect for 2 or 3, and can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children, but is really too small to accommodate 4 adults. Both bedrooms and the bathroom are located upstairs. If you have a problem with stairs, the cabin might not be right for you, as the stairs are steep. It is located right on Tims Ford Lake in middle Tennessee, just outside the town of Winchester. It sits at the edge of the lake, surrounded by 4 wooded acres, with its own dock in a private and quiet residential area. There is an outdoor fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. There's a deck with a porch swing, and another swing down by the lake. You'll find picnic tables and both a gas and charcoal grill for your convenience. There is plenty of shade and it's very peaceful and relaxing. There are games and rainy day activities for children, as well as an outdoor swing set and sandbox. Basic cable TV is available, as well as a DVD/VCR with a small library of movies. No smoking is allowed inside the cabin.
Tims Ford is a great lake for fishing, skiing, or boating. There are lots of antique shops and other attractions nearby as well as mountains nearby for hiking. It's 25 miles to Jack Daniels in Lynchburg; 15 miles to Falls Mill with the largest working water wheel in the United States; 17 miles to Sewanee and the beautiful University of the South. The cabin is located approximately 60 miles northwest of Chattanooga, 90 miles southeast of Nashville, and 50 miles northeast of Huntsville AL and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
