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.

We are so grateful for your kind review and that you and your daughter were able to get some quality time together! We so look forward to your next visit!
Tranquil views at the Cottage
We were welcomed with warm, fresh out of the oven, Banana Nut Bread- which was a delicious treat after the long drive down! The cottage was exactly what the photos showed and the view was amazing! You looked out the window to a view of the moutains and heard nothing but the beautiful sounds of nature. Beverly and Larry were nextdoor but we never heard them. The property was well kept and the cottage felt like home! We highly recommend this location for your next vacation to a place with limited cell service and breathtaking views! We plan to visit again :)
Thank you so much for your kind review. We love being able to share our little slice of paradise here in the Valley. Even to us, it's such a peaceful respite from the hectic pace of today's world. We do hope you'll 'escape' and come down again. We loved meeting you both!
Absolutely loved staying here
It was such a wonderful getaway location. Very peaceful and relaxing. The owners are absolutely lovely, so sweet and kind. I can’t wait to go back!
Thank you so very much! We do hope you will come back again! There is still so much to explore! :-) We love sharing our little piece of the world with those who enjoy getting away from it all!
Very quiet back to nature place.
If you are looking for a place to enjoy the natural outdoors and not hear a mobile phone ringer tone, this would be the place.
They have a fairly new State Park next also.
Thank you so much for choosing us for your getaway! We love meeting new, kind people such as yourselves!
Clean, well kept lawn/home, fully stocked kitchen
Larry and Beverly,
Many thank yous for a mountaintop welcome to “The Valley” and Tranquil Cottage. Jerry and I felt captivated entering the soothingly warm cottage, with a readymade glowing fire in the wood burning stove and a plate of fresh, homemade, gooey sticky buns—-swirling with cinnamon, raisins and nuts—-on the kitchen countertop! You provided outstanding customer service! What a generous reception to start our Thanksgiving stay! We enjoyed preparing our full holiday meal in your spacious and well equipped kitchen. Throughout our visit, we loved the colorful fall scenic views, the calmness, sitting on the porch and overdosing on the smoke from the fire in the wood burning stove, visiting neighboring towns, engaging conversations, premium sleep, peace, walking along the lengthy stream, on property and listening as it slammed against the stones. We also highly appreciated the timely way you kept in touch, answering our concerns and providing helpful directions to the cottage. It is our hope to visit with you again and again.
Thank you for your kind, well written, review of you stay.
It is always a pleasure meeting kind folks as yourselves.
We count it a blessing to share God's creation with those that appreciate the wonder of it all.
We look forward to your return.
Peaceful, Safe Scenic Getaway
This cottage is a beautiful hideaway for anyone wanting some R & R. The owners make you feel at home and Beverly surprised us with homemade pumpkin muffins. We had all the comforts of home and more. The cottage is so spacious and comfortable for a family. We felt safe and wished we could stay longer. We will definitely come back here in the warmer months to enjoy the outdoors and relax on the inviting front porch. Thank you Beverly and Steve for opening your lovely cottage to us.
We are so glad you found our cottage comfortable and cozy. We loved meeting you both and hope you will return again!
