About the property

Get away from it all in this traditional wood cabin in the hills of Tennessee. Peace and quiet above the historic town of Granville, on Cordell Hull Lake. Great views across “them thar hills” from the wrap around porch.

Located an hour east of Nashville this a great base from which to explore and enjoy Middle Tennessee.

Step back in time when you walk through the door into mid-century America. Drink coffee in a kitchen straight out of the 1950s. Relax on the authentic wagon wheel furniture with a cocktail from the vintage bar. Soak in the cast iron bathtub in the period tiled bathroom.

The whole cabin is yours and sits on 2 acres.

There is a hidden modern TV with satelite, DVD player and a Xbox 360.

The stove is a 1956 GEC Spacesaver but there is a microwave for those that prefer something a little more modern. There's also a kurig coffee machine and modern hair drier & iron.

Near to the small historic town of Granville on Cordell Hull lake. Miles of scenic drives around rural middle Tennessee. Local towns for shopping, eating & antiques are Carthage, Gordonsville and Cookeville. For more small town USA visit Gainsboro, Celina, Livingston and Algood. CenterHill Lake is 30 minutes away. Easy day trips to Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.

You'll need an a a boat....

Lots of motorcycles travel around this area due to the beautiful scenery and sweeping rural two lane blacktop. I've even seen a bicycle on occasion!

Awesome Place

Loved it! Amazing views, deer playing in the backyard. Wonderful time would highly recommend to anyone. The owner went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed the place, very open communication. Hope to book a stay for a few days in fall. Thanks for sharing the great place. Roger

Retro meets modern in this cabin with stunning views and plenty of wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

Me and the kids really enjoyed this secluded cabin close to Cummins Falls State Park and many other back to nature areas. You won’t regret booking this wonderful cabin. Just make sure you have 4 wheel drive as the traverse up the path can be tricky. Would stay again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was traveling from Michigan to Florida and we stopped at this cabin for an overnight along the way. It is absolutely charming and adorable in the beautiful hills of Tennessee. Paul and Teresa we're great communicators and put a lot of nice work into their cabin to make our stay comfortable. We arrived late in evening with Paul's directions landing us right on the spot. We would love to come back to explore this beautiful area. Thank you so much for the great stay!
