Outstanding cabin & host
My wife and I stayed in the Art House for a weekend getaway, just us, no kids. I have no complaints!! The layout of this cabin is near perfect. Nice kitchen with all the utensils you could possibly need/want, separate living space that is spacious, laundry area that is out of the way ,but right where you'd want it, very nice bathroom and great shower, plenty of closet space to stay a weekend or a week , bedroom that is plenty large enough. There is a desk area in the bedroom and a reading nook in the entry area to the cabin. There is also a side carport ,attached to the cabin, to park your vehicle. The cabin is nicely decorated and features several pieces of furniture that look handmade and are eye-catching, but very much functional. It is very peaceful and the cabin is located in a beautiful area. I'd wake up very early and enjoy coffee on the deck , listening to the sounds of nature, turkeys gobbling in the distance, an owl in the woods that hasn't wrapped up its night , even a couple of geese up on the ridge. There are lots of squirrels and chipmunks at the cabin that are fun to watch as you read a book or drink your coffee.
The host has prepared a folder with information about things to do in the surrounding area and places to eat. She has given directions to hiking close to the cabin and details on the best times to go on which trails. There is a stream right next to the cabin. At the time of my stay, it was a dry stream bed at the cabin, but 50 yards up the stream bed, water was flowing. Very beautiful. I have stayed in many cabins over the years and I have never stayed in a cabin where there was so much attention to detail. The house was spotless. I cannot say enough good things about the cabin and host.
Cabin is a short drive ,through beautiful cattle and horse country, to Franklin for dining ,shopping and entertainment. Cabin is also close enough to drive into Nashville if you wish.
Thank you so much for that wonderful review! You have captured nearly every intention I had for the Art House when setting out to create it.
And you were fabulous, thoughtful guests. I am so happy you loved staying here and hope to see you again anytime!
If you are looking to escape the busy, noisy, stressful world your life has become - this is the perfect place. The woods, the quiet, the deer who walked past the picture window, everything was serene. Sydney has created a space that is calm. Her sculptures and art compliment the woods that surround the property. We had forgotten how bright the night sky actually is, it was amazing to see the stars over the Art House. We disconnected from the electronic devices and had the opportunity to connect with each other and to nature. Great hikes await just outside the door. Puckett's grocery store, Leipers Fork and the Natchez Trace Trail were great local trips. We will definitely be a return visitor here.
It was a true pleasure to host you and talk with you "on the trail, by the sacred shard pile". I look so forward to seeing you all again, and sharing that glass of wine. You are each so special a couple and I am thrilled you loved my little valley....Next time you will have to go up on top, it is a different world.....take good care of each other...Sydney
My husband and I spent our anniversary here and it was perfect. So quiet, nicely appointed, and absolutely spotless. There was even an electric tea kettle, a nice selection of teas, and drinks in the fridge. The home is covered in original art as is the surround property. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful Tennessee Retreat
Very peaceful and beautiful cabin. Sydney was very welcoming and accommodating. Exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended.
thanks Scott....Loved having you both here. You are wonderful guests and I would welcome you back anytime!
Beautiful location and great host!
I enjoyed my retreat and would come again for another stay!
The Art house is a wonderful and relaxin get place to stay.
It’s so inviting...off the beaten path, but with everything you’d want. My wife and I have loved it!
