great get away just 3 miles from Tennessee Tech and Cookeville. 25 minutes from 3 major lakes. 3 miles from Cummings Falls, one of the best in the South. 1 .5 miles from a 18 hole golf course. Perfect Retreat and you can hear the creek flowing from the rear windows. True Tennessee decorated in country and vintage style, but with modern conveniences too. Great spot for home feel without the hotel hassles.
4 BEDROOM 2 BATH FARMHOUSE NEXT DOOR AVAILABLE TOO!
Cummins Falls State Park is an idyllic, but rugged, 211-acre day-use park located nine miles north of Cookeville on the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River on the Eastern Highland Rim. Located in the Cordell Hull Watershed, the area has been a scenic spot and swimming hole for local residents of Jackson and Putnam counties for more than 100 years. Cummins Falls is Tennessee’s eighth largest waterfall in volume of water and is 75 feet high.
The gorge area of the park is a natural feature unaltered by man, as is most of the park. While very beautiful, this is a rugged area and there are inherent hazards.
The gorge and waterfall are not easily accessed and can only be reached by foot.
There are two routes that descend into the gorge.
One is approximately one mile and the other is approximately 1.5 miles.
Both routes are steep with uneven terrain and have significant elevation drops.
Natural trail surfaces are varied and include water crossings, boulders and other obstacles.
