We enjoyed our stay. We found the antiques interesting and enjoyed the seclusion. We wished there were DVDs for use in the cabin and more reusable plastic cups (rather than disposable). We also would have enjoyed stools at the bar in the kitchen (we cook a lot!) but generally found the kitchen well stocked. Peaceful and pleasant - great star-gazing!
We try our best to accommodate our rental guests. We feel that satellite expanded service allows our guests with better viewing choices including all music channels. I’m sure we would never have the right DVDs for everyone’s taste. Disposable cups for hot and cold allow our guests to have beverages of either type. We used to use solo cups but they did leave rings on our furniture when guests did not use coasters. As to the bar stools, there is not enough room even though we considered it. With two tables there is room for dining for ten. Way more than we allow as maximum guests. We felt with the living area open, that there were plenty of opportunities to have the chef not feel isolated from the rest of the action. We try hard to give our guests a value for their money spent. Hope you enjoy the geodes we gave you.
The home is perfect for what we needed. The view is spectacular and it’s quiet and peaceful!
We came to Tennessee to see the state parks and waterfalls and stayed in this home as it is off the beaten path but does the job great! Full kitchen bathrooms outside view is amazing!
We so appreciate your choosing our rental for your get a way. It was a total pleasure to host you! Hope you return soon.
Perfect Summer Vacation
Our family of 4 booked for 8 days, but enjoyed it so much we ended up staying for 10! The property is absolutely beautiful with great views of the lake and magnificent star gazing in the evening. There are several things to do close by as well! We were able to take our 11 & 13 year old horseback riding, hiking and swimming at Cummins Falls, swimming at the man made beach in the city of Defeated, and even on a guided fishing trip! There are also hiking trails available on the property. Carla and Howard the owners were just delightful! They were so helpful with anything and everything we needed. We will definitely return again!!
Great stay at a very scenic property. Would definitely recommend. Considering going back.
Loved the experience!
We enjoyed the quiet serenity of The Blue Heron. Our host and hostess were phenomenal. The retreat facility was spotless. We will return.
We loved the place and would definitely stay there again. Everything was what we expected
We are located halfway between Nashville and Knoxville, north of I 40 in an area known for its scenic beauty and often called "The Switzerland of the South."
