About Nannette or Milam Cain

We are a family of eleven. We have nine children ranging in ages 15 to 18 months. We love the outdoors and we love this home. We live on the property just up the hill. My husband's mother and her husband also live on the property. This home was originally purchased by my husband's father. Over the years many families, including our own enjoyed this sweet spot to rest. For the first time, our families are opening this home to the public to enjoy. We hope you will enjoy our hospitality.

Nannette or Milam Cain purchased this house in 1948

Why Nannette or Milam Cain chose Alabama

My husband's father obtained this piece of property in the 40's. People criticized his purchase due to the distance from 'town' and the rough terrain. He proved them wrong and has now left his wife, sons and grandchildren a beautiful piece of property that we wish to share with your family.

What makes this house unique

The home has the original tongue in groove pine paneling in the main living area, kitchen, and bunk room. While there aren't many 'rooms' there is plenty of room. You can often find deer grazing in the front yard, as you can hear the frogs and cicadas lull you to rest each night.

Quiet Country Retreat
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews
Mobile, Alabama

Awesome cabin close to Bryant Denny Stadium! Wonderful place to get away & RELAX!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed very comfortably in this cabin. It has soooo much charm and we loved the wood walls/ceilings & stone fireplaces (but did not use them:) The beds are super comfortable & the sheets are amazing!! I've never used such big bath towels either. They were perfect!

The wooded lot is quite secluded and the kids enjoyed paddling around in the pond. We had a fire in the outside fire pit. We are hoping to come back when there is no ALABAMA game, so that we can totally relax and not have to leave. Grocery stores & restaurants are just a few miles away. It took us 10-15 minutes to reach the Univ of Alabama campus. ROLL TIDE!!! It is just south of Tuscaloosa off of Hwy 69.

The family that owns this is very accommodating & live up the street. (They have a NO alcohol/NO smoking policy.... I think that they may be mainly trying to avoid partiers from renting their family cabin since this is a college town. I do enjoy a glass of wine before bedtime....)

I will recommend this site for all of my friends & family. I saw 2 white tail deer from the kitchen window right beside the carport!! I enjoyed the screened in porch very much.

The only thing that could make this better is TV reception & WIFI. I think that they are considering adding this one day. There is a TV & dvd player if you want to watch movies tho. We will definitely be back to stay! Thank you Nannette :)
