About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Bedding for 4/max 6)On 2.5 Acres W/ A Treehouse

“Rustic Retreat' - Come stay in my Cabin and feel the warmth that I have created in this special home built in 2005 by the local Mennonites. This home is 1 1/2 miles from HWY 111, located in a Log Home community called 'Cozy Cabin Retreat' on a secluded 2.5 acres. No Highway noise here, just peace and quiet and lots of stars! Whether you come for a short weekend or a longer stay, you are sure to relax and enjoy small town living and all the beauty that the Cumberland Plateau offers. One of the special features of this home is the Custom Treehouse and will provide hours of activity for the children! The front porch has a screened in porch that provides an additional outdoor dining area and rockers to rock off the stress of everyday life. Out the back door boasts an elevated large deck that will also provide additional outdoor dining and lounging and overlooks the lush hardwood forest. My home has been decorated with pieces of history that I have found from locals but also has all of the luxuries one would want.

Relaxation is priority, so we have provided high quality bedding and linens. This home has all of the modern conveniences but will take you back in time when things were simpler...

About Mary Newman

I have many years experience in the Hospitality Industry and I had the pleasure of renting my home that I currently live in, prior to moving to Tennessee full time. I enjoyed sharing my home with families that were coming to the area to enjoy family vacations together. Once moving to Tennessee full time, we longed for the opportunity to find the perfect getaway to share once again. With the help of supportive family members and friends we have made this possible. I look forward to meeting new families and sharing all that this beautiful area has to offer. Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Mary Newman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Newman chose Spencer

This area is rich in nature and small town culture. Fall Creek Falls is the backdrop for this area, which is why I fell in love with this area almost 10 years ago, and provides days of activities. Whether you choose to go on day trips every day and back to a campfire at night, or just relax indoors at Rustic Retreat, we are sure you will enjoy your stay.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are looking for a home 'off the beaten path' and far away enough from the Highways, this is it!!! Enjoy sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs reading a book or just relaxing. Watch the hummingbirds come within your reach! Make a fire outside in the fire pit in the evenings and have a glass of wine or roast a marshmallow! Enjoy taking day trips to Fall Creek Falls, Burgess Falls, Rock Island State parks and enjoy the waterfalls, hiking, swimming in the falls and have a picnic lunch. Take a trip to Chattanooga to visit the art bluff district and have a gourmet lunch or go to the aquarium.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and awesome location on the plateau! Everything you could ask for. The house was clean and in a private setting and very relaxing on the back deck looking at the woods. I will for sure go back when we are in the area!

Had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to stay! We were able to enjoy using the fire pit outside with our children, as well as the gas grill. Our son had to sleep on the couch, but he did not mind, as it was comfortable for him. On hot days, the AC and fans did the job to keep us cool. The location was peaceful and close enough to Fall Creek Falls to easily visit. Mary was very easy to work with and accommodating.

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Rustic Retreat was the perfect base camp for our family vacation in the gorgeous state of Tennessee. The place was super cozy and decorated so nicely. I especially loved the children's bedroom. All the basic supplies you need for preparing and cooking meals were available. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire pit and bird watching on the road in front of the drive. Rustic Retreat is close to several attractions. We went to Cumberland Caverns, Fall Creek Falls (one of the best parks I've been to), Lost Creek Falls and Cave, Cummins Falls (wear a swimsuit and water shoes!), and Burgess Falls. The drive around the area is so beautiful and truly feels like a retreat. It's so much better than going to those crowded tourist traps. Huge thanks to Mary for allowing us to have amazing experiences using her home. Our family is eternally grateful. Just a note, expect to see some bugs around because you are in the woods.
