Great

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Bower keeps the cabin very clean, my wife and I were looking for a quiet place to getaway for the weekend and this cabin was it. We enjoyed the views and the quietness of the location. We recommend a stay for anyone that wants to getaway from it all. The pass to the Cloudland Canyon Park was great, if you have time you must visit the park.

comfy and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and comfortable on the inside and the sights and sounds were great on the outside. We took hikes at Cloudland State Park (free park pass) and enjoyed the beautiful rocks, waterfalls and well-maintained and marked trails. The hot-tub was a great way to rest our sore muscles after our hikes, and appreciated the "treats" that we there for us when we arrived. It is a mountain area, so I am glad I brought my truck- no problems getting around. It would be a great place to see in fall and winter...thanks again!

Grandson's Post Graduation Tip With MawMaw Net

  • 5 of 5

I said that as my grandkids graduated, I would take them on a trip. Steven had never seen mountains. So I decided to take him to this area. We only had a few days, because he wanted to be home for church Wednesday night. This was very important to him, so I made sure he didn't miss church. I booked the rental and sent him the info, and he was so excited. He kept saying that. When we drove up to the rental, and we got out of the car, I asked if this was as good as he thought it would be, and he said, MawMaw, it's even better. He said that he could live there. He loved his trip and he loved the cottage. The views were breath taking. I took two teenagers and most of the time you could hear a pin drop. A great trip with two great kids, who continuously thanked me for getting a great place to stay and for everything I did with them. It made it all worth it, and gave me quality time with them. The only thing was, a 4 wheel drive may have been easier to get up the driveway. My Lexus drug a lot at one spot.

Charming and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I had such a wonderful week staying at Buzzard's Roost Cottage. The property was everything promised and more. Incredible views, clean, comfortable, and well stocked with just about everything you need to feel at home. We were even provided with fresh eggs upon arrival! My dog, Bella, enjoyed the cottage very much too. So thankful that the property was dog friendly, as are many of the nearby attractions - Cloudland Canyon State Park (parking pass provided by the owners), Rock City, and Ruby Falls (kennels available for your pets). Definitely recommend Buzzard's Roost - Thank you so much Miss Gail!
