The home is wonderful and has a lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect. I spent an entire week there for my fiftieth birthday with my family and parents. We had a wonderful time. The home is charming and welcoming. We camped every morning at 7:00 and again in me evening. My parents grew up in Sewanee/Monteagle area and enjoyed showing my children all of the wonderful sites and hikes available. It was nice not to stayin a hotel so that we could eat as a family and enjoy one another.

Comfortable, spacious home in beautiful, tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for our daughter's Sewanee graduation. The screened in porch was a favorite place to read or nap, the porch overlooking the lake an idyllic spot for morning coffee, or just to sit and listen to the birds. Downstairs master perfect for elderly grandparents, while the large upstairs room accommodated our teens. We only had breakfasts at the home but the kitchen had everything we needed. We did have to share the two showers, but the large downstairs powder room was a practical place for the girls to get ready. We enjoyed walking through the wooded trails and sitting on the dock. Unfortunately we were not there long enough to take out the canoes.

The owner was accessible for questions, and made us feel welcome with a basket of goodies.

Great experience overall. Hope to return.

A well equipped, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many houses over the years in several states but this house is at the top of the list! It is beautifully appointed, yet welcoming and comfortable.....set back in the woods on a lake. Peaceful and quiet.....a real get away from our hectic world! Lynne has provided everything you can possibly need...and more! The kitchen is fabulous and made cooking easy.....entertaining is a delight with the open spaces and multiple dining areas. The dock and canoes were the highlight for our vests enough for all....we wish we could bottle the laughter that attended hours on the beautiful lake! We saw only one other boater out one day....the lake feels like it is yours alone! A little rain here and there afforded game time......and our favorite spot....the screened in porch! The Piggly Wiggly has everything you might need for any kind of meal.....and Sewanee provides great excursions! Looking out over the Pelham (Franklin County) Valley overlook at the Memorial (60 foot) Cross is breathtaking!

Sewanee Natural Bridge (stone) is also a must.....and All Saints Chapel can't be adequately described! Monteagle also boasts trails and lakes and The Assembly Grounds ....interesting history. We have been to these places many times before but always take the opportunity to see them again. Everything is long drives to take in architectural wonders as well as creational wonders. A Tennessee gem. We cannot thank Lynne enough for sharing her home. She responds quickly and genuinely cares about your stay. Lovely week....hard to leave. We will return again!
