Why Dori Wright chose Tuscumbia

Grandpa Isaac Newton Wright built the original home in the 1940's by cutting down trees from the farm and dragging them by horse to the home site.

We gutted his little 4-room homestead, changed the floor plan, remodeled in a rustic decor, added an attic loft/balcony for an additional sleeping area, added multiple windows for viewing the landscape, and a private study/reading area to thoroughly enjoy the solitude. You'll love it!

Beautiful and fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is secluded in a beautiful valley with cows and calves in the pasture right out the window. The private lane leading to the cabin is well maintained and a picture of peace. We found the cabin well cared for (it looked perfectly new) and stocked with things you would use in your own home. The owners are wonderfully friendly and keep the entire farm tidy. We loved the lack of internet. Truly was peaceful. What a great opportunity to get out of the norm and spend some time being together.

Our Favorite Rental Owners (and the Cabin is Amazing Too!)

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Dry Creek Cabin. We first experienced the cabin last year after we got married, so needless to say, we have a particular fondness for the cabin. There’s so many things we love about Dry Creek cabin: the reading nook, the fire pit and seeing the Milky Way in the night sky just to name a few. However, our favorite thing about Dry Creek are the owners: Tom & Dori. They are incredibly hospitable and friendly. Both of the times my wife and I have visited we have felt like we have known Tom & Dori for years. They’re great to work with and that makes our stay even better. We’re already planning our next visit. We can’t recommend Dry Creek cabin highly enough, it’s easily our favorite rental spot!

Still thinking about it

  • 5 of 5

Already planning our next stay. There is much to explore at the house and the area. Every room was a place you wanted to be and dwell. Outside was the same, front, back, the yard, surounding hills, morning sunrise, late afternoon shadows. Trails to explore, and a conservation area nextdoor. I don't think we have enough time left to see half of it but we are going to try. We stayed as long as we could beating check out time by three min. Can't wait to see when the trees turn.

A special place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO. We loved the Dry Creek Cabin!! Can't say enough wonderful things. Tucked away, but not too far away - quiet and peaceful. We were greeted within minutes of arrival by the owners who shared the beautiful history of the cabin. Special touches everywhere. Cozy and comfortable with all the amenities one would need. Very special and unique place. We hope to come back next year!!

Dry Creek Cabin - a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and felt like home. It was a great escape from all of the hustle and bustle of life. I will definitely be coming back sometime to stay. Tom and Dori's hospitality was great! The cabin truly had all of the amenities of home, and it made it so nice to have everything readily available.
