Country Cabin...You Will Love it!

Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cabin will remind you of a simple way of life from times past! 'It is comfortable and peaceful here', said a recent renter. The front porch across the full length of the house makes a great place to sip coffee, relax, and listen to nature. It's unique location allows for retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life! You will love the small but well stocked pond that is within 30 feet of the front porch and a second pond only 100 yards away! Pond was recently restocked so some fish are small. We did see a large catfish August 10, 2018.

The path behind the cabin leads to a small creek where deer and turkey are often seen; this is also a great place for a nice picnic or even horse back riding! For those who enjoy fossil finding and arrow head collecting you will enjoy exploring around the creek banks.

Rent our Cozy Cabin and you will truly be refreshed and blessed!

About Teresa Houser

My parents built this little cabin on the land my Dad grew up on! My Dad grew up dirt poor, but managed to put my sister and I through college without borrowing a dime! The cabin is built much the same way, no loans, no extras, just the basics with lots of hard work and dedication! The planks on the outside are from two large pine trees we cut off the land, and the pond is feed by a well that has not gone dry in over 70 years! This is just our little bit of heaven we hope others enjoy!

Teresa Houser purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Teresa Houser chose Collinsville

This property has been in our family for more than 90 years!

I live in Rome GA and have visited Country Cabin a total of 5 times! It is the best place to unwind and enjoy nature! The cabin is really more of a small house with all the amenities you could ever need! The owners are precious people and have a passion for hospitality.
