About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 9

The Pet Friendly River Thyme Lodge is located across the street from the Tennessee River with a boat launch just a block away and the Cuba Landing Marina just minutes down the road. This eclectic cabin is just an hour outside of Nashville, ready for your weekend trip. Slow down an enjoy this convenient & relaxing getaway spot. The home sleeps up to 9 people with a variety of beds and sleeping configurations. The master bedroom has a comfy King sized bed and off the master is a hidden loft that contains a single twin bed most suitable for younger guests. The second bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed with an additional twin trundle bed. This bunk room can sleep up to 4 guests comfortably. The living room has an u comfortable queen sized futon for flexibility. Or there is an extra twin air mattress located in the closet. This cabin is perfect for a family(s) getaway, use it as a guy/gals hunting or fishing lodge or group trip.

This home has extensive outdoor living spaces for relaxing and unwinding. Slow down and rock in the chairs on the covered front porch or sip your morning coffee on the private balcony off the master bedroom. And at meal time, gather the troops for dinner on the back deck. The home is even equipped with a charcoal grill for your hamburgers and hot dogs. At night, we have a fire pit with chairs so you can sit around and tell stories of the big one that got away.

The fully equipped kitchen has all the items you may need including pots, pans, blenders, grills, plates, glasses, utensils and even a waffle maker! We even leave a few little things there for you like salt, pepper and other cooking essentials---feel free to make use of whatever you find. We keep this cabin stocked with all the goodies we would want, so you will probably find it to be better equipped than most places you have stayed. That being said, it is secluded, so bring enough food for the trip as going to a grocery store is a bit of haul. The cabin does have paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, soap, etc so don't worry too much about bringing this stuff.

The hub of the River Thyme Lodge is undoubtedly the dining room. The unassuming table easily converts to play bumper pool or into a poker table. We even have cards and chips in case you forget yours! We also have a TV in this room with some classic DVDs for your viewing pleasure. The cabin is also stocked with many of your favorite board games. Also, don't forget your fishing poles as I can just about guarantee you will catch something in the river if you even try.

River Thyme Lodge is meant to be a place to unplug, unwind and relax. For this reason, the cabin ***DOES NOT HAVE CABLE OR INTERNET*** service. But relax, your mobile phone should work just fine as I know both AT&T and Verizon have strong LTE signals. We encourage all guests to use this time to put down the electronic devices for a few days and reconnect and relax.

About Rachel Potter

Bob & Rachel are real estate adventurers. We buy houses and share them with friends, new and old. We have traveled the world extensively but enjoy a relaxing weekend at the cabin sometimes.

Rachel Potter purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Rachel Potter chose Waverly

Because it doesn't have cable TV or internet. It forces us to unplug and relax for a long weekend. Plus, the river activities are spectacular in this part of the state.

What makes this cabin unique

So close to the Cuba Landing Marina, which rents boats for a very reasonable rate. Fishing on the river is great too.

Kinda small but enjoyable.

  • 3 of 5

It is what they say a quiet place in the country with no wifi. But be prepared to take a running start to get up the driveway if not just slide back down and try again. Have to admit our oldest granddaughter said that was the highlight of the night. The nearest store is 30 min away in Waverly.

All in all it is a great quiet place. But no view of river.

Unplug and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to unplug and unwind from a long day taking photos during the Amateur National Motocross Championship at the Loretta Lynn Ranch. Comfortable and quiet retreat. I was able to get work done without distraction. Ready to book for next year!!

Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really liked a lot of things about River Thyme. The master loft was great! Probably my favorite thing. The convenience of having a kitchen with all the appliances was also a big plus. Admittedly, it was tough going without wifi or any tv, but we brought some workout DVDs and got some good training in for the weekend. I also really like the bunk bed room, as it is super comfortable for kids! I give it 4 stars instead of 5 due to a few things. As other reviewers have mentioned, the driveway is pretty gnarly, and unless you have 4WD, you'll have a difficult time actually reaching the top. We had to park our SUV halfway up and carry all the luggage, groceries, etc. the rest of the way. Also, this may seem random, but the bathroom mirrors are hung really low on the walls. We are both pretty tall, and it made it kind of awkward to hunch over and get ready. Other than that, though, we had a great time and would recommend to those wanting to go off the grid for a getaway!

great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time, loved the house and location. The only down fall was tons of misqutos..maybe getting something to spray around property would help..Was hard to stay outside long. Other than that.. Fantastic!

overall it was a very nice weekend

  • 4 of 5

The home is nicely decorated and seemed to be pretty clean with the exception of the sheets on the master bedroom, we rewashed them before going to bed, the only other issue is the drive way, If you have a very low car or like us were trying to pull your fishing boat this drive is basically impossible to climb. Even with these two issues it is a very nice quiet getaway.
