'Lazy Days' is the third cabin we built on 60 private acres of property here in the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond. It was a priority for us to maintain seclusion for each cabin while finding a beautiful spot for building. We decided on a hemlock ringed area with just a short walk out to a private gazebo set out on the same 2 1/2 acre pond as Whippoorwill Hideaway shares. We believe you will fall in love with this beautiful, peaceful oasis where you can sit on the porch and do absolutely nothing without any guilt. If you enjoy fishing then you'll appreciate the dock by the gazebo where you can fish for bass or bluegill.

The cabin is only built for 2 and is one open room except for a central fireplace and the private bathroom. It includes a king-size bed with a two-person Jacuzzi beside it. The living room is cozy and you can bring videos to watch on a DVD or VHS player for the quiet evenings. The full back porch is supplied with rockers and a view that is beautiful.

Just a short walk over a little bridge leads to a gazebo out on the water where you can fish or sit in the porch swing.

As soon as you turn in the winding country road tightly hemmed by evergreens you will begin to feel the difference in atmosphere. You've come apart from the rest of the world and this time is just for you - just the two of you.

We live in and the cabin rental is surrounded by the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond. There are unique shops here and some good eating at the General Store, Country Porch and Bachen Haus. Horse lovers will enjoy the Leather Shops and nature lovers will appreciate the serenity and natural beauty that is all around. In the fall watch the old time sorghum mills operate. If you've made this your vacation destination than you may want to go farther afield to the Big South Fork which offers: Horseback Riding, Fishing, White Water Rafting and Hiking; or to Fall Creek Falls, Picket and Cumberland State parks which have: Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating; Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place or historic Rugby . The Cumberland is alive with history and beauty. It's a place to relax and reflect and become acquainted with the real Tennessee. Step back to a simpler time and create a precious memory.

Activities at the Cabin: Sitting on the porch rockers watching the birds, Relaxing on the hammock enjoying the beautiful view, walking down quiet lanes, Reading good books, Fishing, In the community: Sightseeing while leisurely driving the back roads, watching old time sorghum cooking in the fall, Browsing crafts and bulk foods at the general store, Checking out neat things and gifts at the Leather shop, Variety Store or Country Porch. Farther away: Big South Fork which offers, White Water Rafting and Hiking, Fall Creek Falls, Picket and Cumberland State parks have, Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating, Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place and historic Rugby are nearby.

                                              great escape from the e-world

                                              Bill S.

                                              No cell service no internet and no cable or tv this is a great place to get away from rat race of the world today. Everyone should take time to spend here to settle down and just be.

                                              Lazy Days quiet time

                                              Bruce Z.

                                              Lazy Days is a good description...especially on cold winter days. Cabin is cozy, warm and well equipped. If you must have Wifi and TV...it's not for you. Nice country stores and shops to visit when you need to move about the area. I am sure the beauty of the area expresses itself more fully in Spring and Fall.

                                              Looking for a quiet getaway...try it!

                                              Great Little Cabin

                                              Gabrielle M.

                                              My husband and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary. It was cozy and peaceful. The bath tub was huge! Bed was comfortable. The community is quaint and friendly.

                                              Escape from reality

                                              Cassandra R.Tilton, IL

                                              The cabin is away from town which is what we were looking for, not to far to be back to reality. The cabin is very relaxing. We got in late the first night which was disappointing cause we couldn't see the property. When we got up the next morning it was perfect, we had coffee out on the gazebo and listened to nature. We left to go in town for the day when we got back a huge storm had come through and we had no power. The cabin owner came down to check on us but we were still gone. When we realized we had no power I called. She had plenty of candles and oil lamps for us to use that were stocked in cabin. We lit everything along with fire and it was a very relaxing night just the husband and I. If you are looking to disconnect this is the spot. Would love to go back.

                                              We appreciate your patience and good attitude about the power outage. Some things are just out of our control :(

                                              Thank you for coming, and I hope you can visit us again.

                                              This place is the best way to get away from it all and slow down. It is one of our favorite places!

                                              Gena B.

                                              As always, we thouroughly enjoyed our stay. It was relaxing to fish on the pond and then cozy up near our outdoor fire. We hated to leave the little world of peace and quiet. God bless you for providing us a place to get away.
