A secluded cabin in the woods perfect for finishing that novel or writing that song. Or just waking up to birdsong in perfect peace. Idyllic setting in rural TN. Wildlife, water, birds, goats, deer, meditation space. Lots of good walking. Get away from it all - just relax, breathe the air & enjoy. Loft bedroom. Kitchen. Bathroom with shower. Beautiful cedar outhouse. A/C window unit. Photos and reviews on parallel listing service. Google my NYT essay 'lure writers cabin'. Electricity, propane, cell phone best with Verizon. No internet. NOTE: Three night minimum. Or $120 weekend rate (plus $30 cleaning).

                        A Great place to disconnect

                        wade e.

                        Owner was courteous and performed minor repairs quickly. Due to bad weather the access road stayed muddy. The goats were awesome, however be leery of them nibbling on your vehicle. The owner's friend was less than helpful on the last day helping my wife move out. He only watched from the pickup that had a MoveOn.org bumper sticker.

                        Owner's Response:

                        Sorry about the mud! I wonder who my 'friend' in the pick-up was. All the folk I know with pick-ups here would have rushed to help. David

                        Exactly what is advertised

                        Beautiful. David is a great host as well.

                        Magical writing space!

                        Great Place to Escape the Plague of Civilization

                        Jon Z.North Carolina

                        I live in a busy metro part of North Carolina and hate it. Yellowbird is one of the best places i've found to fully recharge and forget about the plight of over crowding, noise, and the general depression that sets in when objectively assessing the populous.

                        I stayed for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. David was a great host. The cabin was clean and provided all the necessary conveniences. The grounds at Yellowbird provided a ton of space to hike and explore. Things are overgrown and perhaps excessively natural...but that's the charm. And that's what makes it special. The buildings and facilities may look somewhat rough on the outside but everything is really well crafted. The interior of these buildings is really cool. The whole place is quite inspiring and i recommend a visit by anyone who is interested in unadulterated nature and comfortable solitude.

                        Owner's Response:

                        Thanks Jon. It was a pleasure having you stay. Your kind comments captured just what I have tried to make happen here.

                        Thomas S.

                        This rustic "writer's cabin" was a great retreat for a private weekend. There are a ton of trails and interesting structures to discover and explore on the property. The only time I saw anyone else was checking in with David. Wildlife all around.
