About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Day bed, 2 bathrooms, porch, quiet (Sleeps up to 12)

Behind the simple exterior of this country home, lies a beautifully refurbished interior, with modern amenities including WiFi. Our house, set in 115 acres of peace and tranquility, is the ideal place to unwind and refresh in the natural beauty of Southeast Tennessee.

On the main floor of this five-bedroom home you will find an open, kitchen-dining-sitting area, two full bathrooms - with travertine stone floors and a bedroom (2 twins). Upstairs there is an additional sitting area to read, chat or play games and four bedrooms. The house sits on a hill, between fields and woodland, with porches on two floors to admire the views and take in a sunset.

You might choose to linger over an old-fashion breakfast, stroll along the nature trails, swim in the saltwater pool, picnic beside the creek, or perhaps spend a relaxing evening around a campfire, enjoying the brilliant starry skies.

You may see llamas, a donkey, goats, alpacas, chickens, ducks and geese as you stroll around the land. From the porch you may spot deer grazing in the morning as well as a variety of other local wildlife. It is a remarkable area for bird watching too!

Our large saltwater pool, is usually open from early - mid May until early October. This pool, which is 25 yards in length, is shared with other families who live on the 115 acres.

We are always happy to work with you to provide what is needed to make your stay just right.

Located in Decatur halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga, we're surrounded by an abundance of sightseeing possibilities. You could go on a fishing expedition at nearby Watts Bar Lake, hike around Ruby Falls or Fall River Falls, catch a concert on the river in Chattanooga, visit the Knoxville Zoo or the Womens' Basketball Hall of Fame, play at Dollywood or enjoy the scenic wonder of Smoky Mountain National Park...to name a few day trips. Whatever your fancy, there is an abundance of nearby activities to choose from.

It’s a special place for couples, friends and families to spend quality time together.
