Come relax in our cozy 2 bedroom, fully furnished guest house located on 10 acres at the Head of the Sequatchie Valley, halfway between Crossville and Pikeville. We are tucked in by the beautiful hills of God's Country. There is something very special in this space between the mountains. Walk down to the Sequatchie river which runs through our homestead and enjoy what nature provides each season. In hot weather, dip your feet in the cool water or sit in a chair and read a book while listening to the relaxing sound of the river. If you are looking to escape city life, have a personal retreat, or a quiet getaway, we offer a peaceful respite for rest and relaxation. We are next to the soon-to-be-opened Cumberland Trail State Park and located in Cumberland County, the golf capital of Tennessee which has ten championship golf courses. We are 20 minutes South of Crossville, TN, on the Cumberland Plateau which is home to the Cumberland County Playhouse, the historic homestead area, and Cumberland Mountain State Park. We are also one hour from the beautiful Fall Creek Falls State park. Other nearby waterfalls include Burgess Falls, Cummins Falls, Ozone Falls, and Rock Island State Park, among others. We are conveniently located 1 1/2 hours from Chattanooga and Knoxville. We are also 2 hours from the Great Smoky Mountains and Nashville. Our guest cottage is remote, quiet, and peaceful. Depending on the season and weather, we can offer a campfire down by the river, horse shoe pit, barbecue grill, and supervised use of the wood stove. This property located in the valley does not have cell service, although we do have free Wi-Fi.

About Larry and Beverly Maxwell
The Maxwell family has lived on this property for the last 30+ years, taking it from a wild, thorn-covered property to a park-like setting. Its original owner, Larry's father, Rupert Maxwell, was a WWII P47 Thunderbolt fighter pilot and was shot down over Germany and held in a prisoner of war camp for one year. Rupert passed down many lessons including his love for the Lord, this property, and the hard work it takes to maintain it. Larry and Rupert built both houses, including the barn. Larry and Beverly are avid outdoorsman. We love to hunt and fish, hike, garden, cook, read, sit down by the river and swing on the porch. God has blessed us with this homestead and we would love to share this special place with you. Coming from a military family, Larry has lived in several places, while Beverly grew up and lived in Michigan. Together, we share 4 grown children and 5 grandchildren. We are laid back folks who love our quiet piece of the world.
Why Larry and Beverly Maxwell chose Pikeville
This property, our little piece of the world, is secluded enough to be a peaceful haven and yet not too far from amenities. We love it!
What makes this Cabin unique
What people say when they come here is that it is so beautiful and peaceful and that we are so blessed to be able to live here. The Valley is a historic place where Cherokee Indians once made their home until they were moved out on the Trail of Tears. The first Sheriff of Cumberland County is buried on the State property next door. The Sequatchie river originates out of the hillside nearby and runs through our property and makes a great place to cool ones feet on a hot day! Wildlife pays us frequent visits that include deer, turkeys, fox, coyote, bobcat, and many species of birds, etc. Beauty abounds in this space between the mountains and if you sit long enough or wander with a keen eye, you, too, can take in its wonders and escape the real world for a while.

My wife and I were looking for a nice, secluded place and we found it in the Sequatchie Valley!
If you want to really get away, this is the perfect place....total silence, no ambient light, and no cell service. All you hear are the birds, the summer bugs, and an occasional piper cub plane drifting above the valley.
The cottage is one of the best equipped properties that we have found in our 20+ years of using VRBO around the world. Larry and Brenda are wonderful hosts... always available, but not obtrusive in any way. Their cottage provides an ideal experience for anyone who wants/needs to relax and decompress for awhile. There are many recreational options in the area, or you can sit on the comfortable front porch of the cottage and do nothing!
The best thing is that you have a choice:) This is exactly what we were looking for, and exactly what we found. If you are in that kind of mood, you can’t beat it.
Thank you so very much for your thoughtful and kind words. It is our goal to make our guest feel welcome. We are happy to hear that you found what you were looking for at our cottage. We feel blessed to be able to share our little piece of the world with others who appreciate what it has to offer.

We loved the cottage!!! It was so peaceful and Larry and Beverly were the perfect hosts. We will be back!!!
Exactly what we needed...
Well-built and tasteful cabin in a legitimately serene setting. Owners accessible yet unobtrusive. Would rent again.
We appreciate your thoughtful review. Thank you for choosing our cottage as a place to get away from it all. It is our objective to respect our guest's privacy and yet be as approachable and helpful as need be. We look forward to your next visit.
Beautiful place and wonderful hosts!
So enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage, it was all we had hoped for and more. The views are so stunning and the cottage was so well appointed and clean. Our hosts were so considerate and made sure we had everything we needed. What a wonderful place to get away from it all and unwind, we could not have asked for it to be any better. We plan to return as often as we can!
We are so thankful to be able to share our cottage and that people see and appreciate its unique beauty and solitude.
We envision this place as a true getaway location and we look forward to your next stay.
The cabin was wonderful! Very clean and well organized. The first night at the bonfire near the creek was a nice start. The evening was clear and cool (after a nearly 90 degree day) and I don't believe I've ever seen so many stars in the sky. Larry pointed out the reflection of several satellites as they passed by, you could never see them at our house.
I only wish our schedule wasn't as full as it was, we would have loved to have spent more time at the cabin then our busy schedule allowed. I suggest everyone allow more time to enjoy the cabin property.
My wife sat on the porch the last evening we were there, for several hours, watching the Hummingbirds eat at the feeder. There were 5 or more Hummers feeding at the same time on several occasions.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to have an opportunity to return some day.

Thank you so very much, Gene and Twyla~ It was wonderful getting to know you a bit. I'm happy you got to see some of the many hummingbirds we get. They are surely entertaining to watch! Please come again!
We loved staying in the Tranquil Cottage! It was so restful & gave such a peaceful feeling. The cabin was beautiful and our hosts were awesome! We highly recommend this Cabin to anyone wanting to stay in the Crossville/Pikeville area. Following the directions that the hosts provided made finding the location very easy.
