Why David and Joann Sappington chose DeKalb County
Serenity Ridge is our first of our 5 cabin vision. We want you to enjoy all of the things that we would want for our own vacation. We have put our heart and soul into this cabin, and we hope you enjoy and appreciate it as much as we do.
What makes this Cabin unique
The ability to enjoy so many outdoor activities and still have the convenience of a town that provides all of your dining and shopping favorites, a short drive to Nashville or Knoxville to enjoy the night life and famous sights, made this location a great choice for our guests.

Beautiful, private, and quiet. The hosts are cool, friendly, and responsive.
I almost don't want to say anything because then everyone will want to use this awesome place. The cabin is totally renovated and is in a beautiful part of Tennessee. There are so many state and local parks around with unbelievable waterfalls, great hiking, and beautiful canyons.
The lake is amazing and not surrounded wall to wall with cabins. There are great restaurants in nearby Cookeville and Nashville is about an hour and 15 minutes away. The hot tub is awesome and set in a great little private gazebo with a firepit right outside.
The cabin has everything you need from great towels and linens, to cooking utensils and pots and pans. The appliances are all new. The views are great.
The owners were super cool, responsive and very attentive, without being in your business. The owner's home is next door, but because of the way the cabin is situated, their home is not in your view of the woods and lake (which should get better when the brush thinning project is completed). We will go back and that says a lot because it's an 8 hour drive for us.
FYI, there are a lot of stairs and the walk to the lake is very steep. But, the local boat launch is very close by.
Thank you so much for staying with us, it was a great pleasure to meet you both. We will continue to make Serenity Ridge a fabulous and comfortable place for everyone to enjoy, and we really look forward to seeing you in the near future!! Happy Holiday's and thank you for the great review!
Peaceful cabin that offers everything you need!
The name of this cabin says it all! Absolute serenity, peace, and relaxation. A home away from home tucked away in the mountains offering all the outdoor adventure you could ask for. We would go back again and again. It was truly the best vacation we've ever had. Thank you again David and JoAnn for being the best hosts! We had just as much getting to spend time with you both as we did staying in this beautiful cabin!!
Thank you so much for staying with us on your Honeymoon, and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We were thrilled to get to spend some time getting to know you all as well, and we truly look forward to you visiting with us again. May your years together be as blissful as your vacation!
David & JoAnne were extremely gracious, accomodatiing, and friendly! She made us a cake and picked up missing grocery items for us! We look forward to staying in their cabin again!
Thank you so much, we enjoyed having you all as well! See you soon!
Peaceful with everything you need.
Great cabin ! We had a great weekend. We enjoyed the lake then celebrated a birthday in the cabin. Our kids kept finding games and everything we needed. The fire pit with smores was amazing! Great host who live right next door! Rare to find such southern hospitality.
We really appreciate your feedback, and we are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Your children are so well mannered, and the cabin was left in great shape. Thank you for that. We hope you will come and visit again! As we mentioned, we will continue to build more great things for everyone to enjoy while visiting. Please come again soon!

Perfectly set up for comfort
Sometimes staying at a vrbo feels like you're invading someone else's house -- there can be clothes in the closets, junk on the dressers, personal notes on the fridge, etc.
Not this place.
Serenity Ridge is clearly set up as a vacation rental. It's comfortable and inviting. Very cozy. It's decorated nicely and feels "finished".
My husband, four kids, and I stayed at Serenity Ridge for 3 days. The owners made us feel incredibly welcome. They were accommodating in every way, but were not overbearing at all.
There were plenty of linens. The beds were comfortable. The accommodations were clean.
There are two sets of stairs in the rental, so it would not be recommended for people with mobility issues. Other than that, though, I think many types of people would enjoy the space. They had some great board games too! It worked well for our family, and it would be an ideal spot for a couple as well (the kids' beds are in the basement). It's definitely versatile.
We had a fantastic time. Thank you for everything!
We are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay at Serenity Ridge. We have put our hearts into making it as warm, cozy, and comfortable as we can, so your feedback is so greatly appreciated. We will be adding more amenities as we progress, and we truly hope you will come back again.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really do appreciate it!
