Carefree drive to Nashville (1 hr), Franklin (45 min.) and Huntsville (1.5 hrs). Master bed/bath with hand carved 1800s bedroom suite (queen bed); fireplace in each room, vaulted ceilings, hand carved trim and doors, large floor to ceiling windows to watch sunset over hills and fields of grain. Beautiful porches, landscape, and strolls.

Whether you would like to tour Nashville, want a family vacation with privacy, peace and quiet, or a guys / gals retreat, this historic home will meet your lodging needs. It has five bedrooms, the master with a queen size bed, antique bedroom suite and fireplace; the parlor with a single bed (historic half - teeter bed), wardrobe and 2 fireplaces, the stone-walled basement with a queen bed and winter kitchen (fireplace), and the upstairs one with queen bed and fireplace, the other with 3 beds, each complete with wardrobe and connected by Jack and Jill bathroom. There is a double sized futon in the winter kitchen bedroom for additional sleeping. There is a spacious great room with hand hewn beams. There are two baths, one with a tub and shower and the other with a tub. The home is completely furnished with everything you need from modern appliances and kitchen needs to linens and towels, along with a washer and dryer. Wifi is strong throughout. Even though this is a remote area, you will get cell phone coverage. Just bring your food and personal items and lock yourself away for a truly peaceful experience!

Canoeing, fishing, scenic drives, horseback riding, all just a few minutes away. Enjoy walking and hiking or horseback riding in the Yanhali Wildlife Management area, browsing the shops and antique stores in the quaint city of Columbia which is only a 15 minute drive. Other attractions between 30 to 90 minutes away are Davy Crockett State Park, the Natchez Trace, Amish Country, antique shopping in historical downtown Lawrenceburg, Franklin, Helen Keller's childhood plantation home and a Frank Lloyd Wright's house in Florence, AL, Shiloh Battlefield, Jack Daniel's Distillery and much more. But what you may enjoy most is to turn off your cell phone and enjoy your stay in private seclusion while enjoying the warmth of those you love most. Watch the sunrise over the grain fields on the back porch, feel the wind through the breezeway, and move to the front porch to watch the sunset paint the evening canvas above rolling hills. Stroll to the old tobacco barn on one end of the property or the tenant house on the other. Listen closely over the birds and crickets to the voices of the past welcome our 7th President (Andrew Jackson), debate Emancipation, mumur in awe of the sight of the first "mechanical" horse carriage or welcome their son back from the World War.

Road Conditions: All main roads are paved. The drive to the house is gravel.

About Denise Tabscott

Chris and Denise met at the University of Central Florida and have been married 20 years. We moved to TN in 1999 and fell in love with the area. We have raised our 3 kids here and currently live in the Middle Tennessee area.

Denise Tabscott purchased this Farmhouse in 2015

Why Denise Tabscott chose Culleoka

We love the country and historic homes and looked for years for a property like this. When we found this property we fell in love with it and look forward to retiring there. We often come for relaxing weekends and vacations and love unplugging and unwinding and being in the middle of nature. Life tends to slow down when you are at the Historic Hideaway and we can't wait to share that experience with our guests.

What makes this Farmhouse unique

Make sure to pull up a lawn chair in the back yard in the summertime and watch the millions of fireflies dance in the twilight during the summer months. This house was built with a breezeway effect so to cool down open the front door and pull down the screen and open the back door and allow the cool breeze to come through the house.

                                                              We enjoyed staying, the house is beautiful!

                                                              It is a beautiful home and property. We are already planning to visit again.

                                                              This was the most relaxing and enjoyable retreat I've had in years!

                                                              The house is lovely and the setting is so serene and picturesque. We loved listening to crickets and night birds and the sound of soft rain while sitting on the cozy porch. We came for a writing retreat - trying to get away from the city and focus on deadlines for a project. But the peace of this place just made it so easy to rest and the creative energy flowed easily. We would love to return.

                                                              And our hosts were just as helpful as can be - they had everything we could need or want to feel comfortable and welcome!

                                                              Historic and comfortable...

                                                              Needed to stay on town for a family wedding. The place was a perfect spot to visit to get a taste of history and fun. We will stay again.

                                                              We absolutely enjoyed our time at the 1828 historic home. It was everything you would expect , plus so much more. There was a little bit of everything in the house. And we loved the library wall. So much information on Tennesse , Civil War History Etc. We felt very relaxed, comfortable and at home. The surrounding area was very beautiful. Easy to get to and anything you would like to do in the Nashville area was a short drive away! We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner than later!
