About Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green

My partner Barb and myself were living together since 14 years. We finally got married in March 2015. We raised 3 children together and are now Grandmothers of 1 awesome little boy. I am originally from Germany and Barb grew up here, in Jamestown TN. We lived for years in several parts of Florida before we found our Dream House here, in Tennessee. We love traveling, swimming and just relaxing in nature. We have 2 large dogs, Great Pyrenese, Max and Sasha, who roam around the property.

Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green chose Big South Fork Recreational Area

This property is secluded and right on a private lake but only a 5 minutes drive to Jamestown. Swimming on own risk, no Lifeguard on duty. We live on the property in a house beside the cabin and you may have to share the swimming area in the summer with us. But otherwise we give our guests all the privacy they want.

What makes this cottage unique

Private Lake.Swimming on own risk. No lifeguards on duty

Great place to stay, worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds surrounding this property are spectacular. Feels like you are in a treehouse because of the elevation of the property. Sit on the deck and look out on the beautiful fish filled lake. Don't be concerned about owners house being close, they definitely give you all the privacy you want.

Pull up to the house and you are greeted by the owners 2 large but very friendly dogs. The cottage is everything you'd want with everything you need except food and beverages.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

my wife and I stayed 2 nights at this lovely cabin. it is such a quite and peaceful setting . It served our purpose ,for getting away for a couple days of r&r, perfectly. Very clean inside and out, we didn't have go haul our kayaks because the owners have some there to use. Although the owners were right next door they respected our privacy while making sure all our needs were met.

The only reason I didn't give a full 5 star was for the a/c . The window type air conditioner in the bedroom was not quit adequate for the whole house . it was 87 degrees the day we were there and it was pretty warm for my blood so I would think in the dead of summer this could be an issue. other than that the place is awesome and I would highly recommend for a no quite escape.

10 stars if we could!! The ultimate in privacy. Great smaller cabin on a private lake!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for total piece and quiet, this place is it! It is located on a smaller private lake that provides the feel of a big lake without all the noise and activity that comes with a big lake. The owners cabin is a ways away and offset which maintains the privacy, plus they appear to go out of their way to ensure your privacy. The cabin itself is really well maintained and the two decks both provide great views! The dock is also well maintained, and the fact that it's covered provides flexibility related to the weather. There's also a nice winery about 10 miles away if you're into that sort of thing. Again, a really relaxing experience. My wife and I will definitely be back!!

Had a wonderful 3 night stay at this quiet scenic lakeside house. Owners were very friendly and accommodating; ensured we had everything we needed while staying at the cottage. Highly recommend staying here and we plan on revisiting in the future.
