Beautiful cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful vacation house. Owners were nice and quick to answer questions. I would like to have seen a few more amenities but was reasonably clean. Very quiet.

Great accommodations!

What a great place to stay! The owners even invited the kids over to jump on trampoline and to do zip line. Amazing time!

Beautiful cabin in a quiet area!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin! The atmosphere was so welcoming and cozy and there was plenty of space for our two families with a total of four kids and four adults. The only issue we had was that the cabin is very close to the road without a yard area for the kids to run and play. We had kids ages 3 months to 4 years - the springs were also a good distance by car so we never got to go to them. Also, the view in the description was a bit misleading. We did not have a view overlooking the valley, it was across the street and very wooded.

However, if you are a runner, the road was safe to run and low traffic (vehicle) it is a bit hilly but that makes it fun, and there were a few loose dogs that liked to tag along :)

The owners live a rocks throw from the cabin, which is convenient but also makes it not so private. The owners were so nice and accommodating though, so there were no issues.

I would def recommend this cabin for anyone seeking a peaceful stay at the cabin type vacation! It is beautiful! It is about a 20 minute ride to the city which wasn't that bad either! overall 4 stars! Thanks to the owners for being so accommodating during our stay!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this review is a bit misleading. This cabin does sit closer to the road to take advantage of bluff views directly across the street, with a good size yard in between, one that guest continually enjoy throwing balls, running and playing in. This home also sits on an acre lot with plenty of room around the cabin to run and play. unfortunately, the children in this group were a bit too small to enjoy the other wooded and open play areas around the cabin as they are not visible from the front of the cabin. However a walk around the porch yields a birds eye view of the property. It's also an unfortunate review for the neighborhood. This cabin is located on a quiet, country, residential street. Since we know all of our neighbors, we just have not been able to decipher what "dogs" this reviewer is referring to. Only one "wondering dog" comes to mind, our beloved neighborhood watch dog "Sweet Pea". And unfortunately this neighbor had to fence her in because our guest and children love her so that they lure her into the street to walk with them, unaware of the danger this could be for her. We wish the Mullis family would have contacted us regarding swimming holes in the nearby spring. This is a 7 minute drive from the cabin. We do recommend driving to the closest spring since families must cross a busy street to get there. And there are many many more lovely hiking, swimming holes and waterfalls less than 30 minutes from the cabin beyond this one. We are dissapointed that this review doesn't accurately portray the cabin. Yet we also understand that it may not have been the best fit for several small children ages 4 and under. This cabin has offered wonderful adventures and summer fun for so many families with children.

Excellent getaway for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and the owners were very kind and welcoming! We had 5 children and 6 adults and there was plenty of room for everyone! The kids had plenty of room inside and out to play. It is an easy 25-30 min drive to downtown! I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a nice getaway! The only downside is that the internet access was very slow. If you needed to do any work for business or stream a tv show the internet access would not accommodate that. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Adam, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin... You are right, this cabin is best suited for hiking, biking, swimming, star gazing, family time together, exploring and adventuring. It's so good for the soul...yet if one must be connected at all times to the internet, satellite (mountain top internet) is not always dependable. We hope your family can retreat again soon!!

Great house, love that each bedroom had its own bathroom.

  • 5 of 5

Great family weekend. Love being in the mountains yet close to Chattanooga. A little disappointed there was no view of the valley from the house. The house sits across the road from the view and we were unable to see view due to trees. The house is close to the road but the road doesn't have much traffic so ended up not being an isssue.
