About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Need a break from the stress of city life? Do you enjoy outdoor activities? Come to the Cumberland Plateau and stay at the Carriage House. The Carriage House is ideal for Parents' Weekend, homecomings and graduations at the University of the South and St. Andrews Sewanee. If you love the outdoors South Cumberland State Park visitors and information center is about 7 minutes away. The park, which includes Sewanee Natural Bridge, Fiery Gizzard Trail, Foster Falls, Savage Gulf, Stone Door, Greeter Falls, Meadow Trail and Grundy Lakes has some of the most noted hiking trails in the country. If you truly need to relax go no further than the gardens and trails of the Carriage House. We are nestled approximately 2 miles from Highway 56 on part of a 400 acre farm. The Carriage House is the end of the trail and is quiet and peaceful. The butterfly garden attracts many visitors. It is filled with butterfly bushes, bee balm, lantana, phlox, lilies and of course, butterflies. Hostas, trilliums, and columbine make up the shade garden. Red buds, dogwoods and river birch are beautiful spring, summer and fall. A short walk away is the duck pond. The ducks are very friendly and love to be fed. Hopefully, you'll also see a visiting crane, deer or turkey. Bluebird trail leads to Bluebird Rock with its spectacular view of the gulf and Payne's Cove.

About Jim DeLozier

My wife and I are retired teachers. She has several piano students and, in fact, the Carriage House is her music studio when we have no guests. We are animal lovers and currently have two Poms, a Great Pyrenees, a bobtail German Shepherd, and two lucky cats.

Jim DeLozier purchased this apartment in 1948

Why Jim DeLozier chose East

We've dreamed of a home on the bluff for years.

What makes this apartment unique

Seclusion. We live almost two miles from the highway, with no through traffic, one neighbor across the creek, bluff views and miles to walk in all directions.

Beautiful Countryside

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in the DeLozier's Carriage House. It was clean and comfortable with a beautiful deck. Our hosts were friendly and helpful.

A Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed some time away from home at the Carriage House. While the house itself was nice, we especially enjoyed the property and the scenic setting the house offered. We were even accompanied on several walks by their two friendly pups.

The house is far enough out there to get away from things for a while, yet close to small towns like Monteagle, which has unique shops and sights to see. We even took a day trip to Chattanooga while we were there and enjoyed everything the area had to offer.

If we are ever back in the area, I'm sure we will enjoy another stay at the Carriage House.

The Carriage House was a cozy and comfortable place to stay. It was bigger than expected and very clean. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very restful and quiet location. We hope to return!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our extended weekend at the Carriage House. It's a gem for privacy, comfort, and the view of the bluff (just a short distance from the property) is sublime. Jim was friendly and a great host. We hope to stay here again!

Clean, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is very clean and surround by beautiful big woods. This was a great alternative to staying at a hotel and it is PET FRIENDLY which can be challenging when looking for a nice place to stay. If we come back to the area, we will stay again.

Map

We are located atop the plateau about 1.5 miles from Highway 56. We are surrounded by state parks, Savage Gulf, Foster Falls, Fiery Gizzard, and and other parts of the South Cumberland State Park. You might be interested in seeing the historic coke ovens or walking the trails around Tracy Lakes. After your hike, visit the oldest bakery in Tennessee, The Dutch Maid Bakery. University of the South is only a short distance away where cultural activities abound. Concerts, plays, and guests speakers are regular fare. Head in the opposite direction and visit Beersheba Springs with its historic Methodist Assembly Grounds and its original log homes.

If you are hungry a 10 minute drive takes you to Monteagle for fast food or relaxed dining. The Smoke House offers live music on weekends. High Point provides historic dining on the summit between Chicago and Miami. Local legend has it that Al Capone stayed at High Point on trips between his Chicago and Florida homes. Some of the best barbecue, anywhere, can be found at Smokin B's.

If you want to stay closer to home we are located on a 400 acre farm with several miles of bluff views, walking trails, and roads. Bring your camera.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $25

The reservation software asks for payment on the day the reservation is made, even if it's 5 minutes to midnight. Please pay at your convenience. Also, instead of tax not included, the listing should state that there is no tax. Also, the payment requests states that you should call before paying. If you're using a credit card I see no need to call, unless that's something you want to do.
