About the property

Studio with 1 bath - sleeps 2 only - on the banks of a private pond

Romance was on our mind as we designed and built 'Two’s Company'. The only dwelling nestled on the banks of a one and a half acre private lake, this romantic one room suite, one bath cabin is all wood inside and out. It includes a king-size bed with a two-person heart-shaped Jacuzzi beside it.

A gas fireplace is in the cozy living room and it has a fully equipped kitchen. From the porch you can walk straight down to the dock or to the grill on the other side.

As soon as you turn in the winding country road tightly hemmed by evergreens, you will begin to feel the difference in atmosphere. You have come apart from the rest of the world and this time is just for you.

Surrounding this Tennessee cabin rental is the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond on The Cumberland Plateau.Located just ten miles north of I-40 between Nashville and Knoxville, you can rendezvous for several days of refreshment, or spend your whole vacation here while exploring the beauty of the Cumberland.

Reasons You Should Come:

At the Cabin: Sitting on the porch rockers playing checkers or watching the birds, Relaxing on the swing enjoying the beautiful view, walking down quiet lanes holding hands and talking, Reading good books, Fishing.

In the Community: Shopping at unique stores, Sightseeing while leisurely driving the backroads, Eating someone else's cooking, Watching the sorghum growing in the fields or being cooked in the fall. Farther Away: Beautiful scenery which includes Big South Fork, offering: Horseback Riding, Fishing, White Water Rafting and Hiking; Fall Creek Falls, Picket and Cumberland State parks have: Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating; Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place and historic Rugby are nearby.

About Rosanna Horst

Our family lives right here in the community of Muddy Pond just 2 1/2 miles. from our 3 cabins. Martin manages a storage shed business part time and is nearby if he's needed. He's a builder by trade and had a lot of fun building the cabins 'from scratch'. He even cut the trees from the 60 acres by the cabin and had a miller come in to saw them. I (Rosanna) wear a lot of different hats. I home school our children, communicate with you, and make sure the cabin is ready for you. I enjoy cooking and baking, gardening and even some painting.

We'd love to meet you, come see us!

Rosanna Horst purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rosanna Horst chose Muddy Pond

About 10 years ago 60 acres came up for sale just a couple miles back in from our home. We love the area and just can't think of any place we'd rather live, so......We put down a few more roots. The weather in this part of TN is ideal, and lots of retirees have moved here on the Cumberland Plateau because of it.

We are also surrounded by natural beauty and the Cumberland Plateau is rich in waterfalls, caves and history.

What makes this cabin unique

When we travel, we love to find a secluded rental surrounded by nature. Our rentals reflect our interests, and we believe you'll enjoy the luxury of solitude and simplicity which renews our spirits.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely beautiful!!! Please don't change a thing.

We came here on our honeymoon with plans to go places and do things, but once we got to "Two's Company" we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave. Other than a trip to town for groceries and going out to dinner once we never left.. It's so serene and beautiful here we could easily stay longer.

Thank you very much Martin and Rosanna. The cinnamon buns were excellent ! We'll be back if you'll have us :)

The perfect getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have no words to express how much we loved this cabin. We wished we could of stayed longer. We were so sad to leave :( This is the perfect area for a romantic getaway. The cabin was cozy, large porch, the private pond was immaculate and clean, we even took the boat out for a few and we even swam. It is so close to all the state parks, hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc. Down the street is a great restaurant that was amazing as well. My wife fell in love with this place as did I. She told me when we sat outside at night that she's never seen the stars so bright, I agreed. Thank you so much for providing such an oasis that we can come and enjoy without the stress of our everyday busy lives. This was an awesome anniversary week for us that we will never forget. We will definitely be back!!! J&B

From a simple checkin to arriving at the cabin everything was as good as it could have been. The seclusion and quiet was wonderful and relaxing was easy. It was a great way to escape for a few days.

Very quiet and calm

Pond is stocked with cat fish and blue gill. Sprinkle some bread crumbs off the dock to see them swarm or bring a fishing pole if desired. Grateful for hide-away setting for a weekend get-away!

Car: recommended

You can shop in nearby Cookville or Crossville but we live in & the cabin rental is surrounded by the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond. There are unique shops & good eating at the General Store, & Country Porch. Horse lovers will enjoy the Leather Shops & nature lovers will appreciate the serenity & natural beauty that are all around. In the fall, watch the old time sorghum mills operate. If you're staying for a bit, you may want to go farther afield to the Big South Fork which offers: Horseback Riding, Fishing, White Water Rafting and Hiking; or to Fall Creek Falls, Picket & Cumberland State parks which have: Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating; Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place or historic Rugby. Crossville offers golfing and the famous Playhouse. The Cumberland is alive with history & beauty. It's a place to relax & reflect & become acquainted with the real Tennessee. Step back to a simpler time & create a precious memory

Other Activities: The most important activity at the cabin is relaxing

Golf: Crossville Tn is considered the golf capital of TN. I don't know a thing about it :) but it's not far away if you want to go.
