About Gale Moore
We bought this cabin after falling in love with Clifftops. We are swimmers, runners, cyclists, tennis players, paddlers, and fisherpeople. Clifftops had all our favorite activities in a beautiful community.
Gale Moore purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Gale Moore chose Clifftops
We liked this property because it was near the front of the development which gives easy access to trails, restaurants, and The University. It is also at the end of a cul-de-sac which is an asset with little ones.
What makes this Cabin unique
Nearly secluded location in Clifftops forest. Four miles from Sewanee. Being allowed to swim a mile in a clear, clean, lake knowing I won't get creamed by a motor boat is fantastic. Being able to pull our canoe, kayak or paddleboard off the rack and paddle a couple of miles and fish for bass makes for a perfect evening activity.

Fun Sewanee trip
Great cabin, perfect for our visit.
Great location for a weekend in Sewanee. Great to be able to bring the pup with us. Cabin was a bit musty from being closed up. The only thing that would be great is if the seating in the den was updated as it is very old and uncomfortable. An update and this place would be great.
Sorry that you found the place musty. It was cleaned 3 days before your arrival. We are experiencing a heat wave. Fortunately our AC works quickly to cool and freshen the cabin. In our living room, we have a love seat that is less than 2 years old. Since we allow pets, we don't feel the need to have new furniture in the Living Area. We had custom pillows made for the couch and love seat within the last year for extra comfort.
Quiet and Relaxing
ATypical cabin was as described. The main bedroom bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had all the necessities. There are lots of carpet runners on the floor which posed a minor problem for me (old guy with bum leg). You are in the middle of the woods with no neighbors nearby, so the owners have chosen to emphasize the views by not having any window shades, drapes, etc. which may take a little getting used to. The owner was responsive to a minor problem we had with the lock box. The cabin was a nice place and we would go back again.
We loved Atypical cabin. It was
An Absolute Dream
ATypical Cabin is a wonderful retreat from the busy world. Set back in the woods at the end of the road, you are surrounded by stunning nature. The deck and screened in porch allow for maximum enjoyment of the setting. The cabin itself has a fantastic layout with a open concept fully stocked kitchen, dining area and living room with a beautiful fireplace. The main bedroom is very comfortable. The star of the show is the screened in porch. We spent most of our time taking in the beautiful scenery. Clifftops is close to grocery stores and Sewanee which makes it perfect for Parents Weekend or Graduation. I highly recommend ATypical Cabin!
Thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed Atypical.
Nice getaway spot
Nice for a few days getaway.
Enjoyed screened in porch and convenient location.
Great that you can take pets there
Glad you and your pup enjoyed your stay. Please let us know what we can do better to earn one star.
Clifftops is a large, wooded, gated community with a private lake and swim club. Homes are on 5 acre lots. Wildlife abounds. Trails run throughout the development. The roads through Clifftops are newly paved and shady. There is very little traffic, making it a nice place to ride bicycles or scooters. The swim club, tennis courts and playground are less than half a mile from our cabin. The beautiful lake with dock, sandy beach and clear, clean water is 4 miles from the cabin. Open water swimming is allowed. Gas powered boats are forbidden. The fishing is fantastic from the dock or canoe or kayak.
The area is famous for hiking with Sewanee's 21 mile perimeter trail just 4 miles from Clifftops. Fiery Gizzzard and Cumberland State Recreation Area are also close-by. We are near the front of the development, which makes for easy commute to campus.
All Saints Chapel (breath-taking Episcopal church) and the beautiful campus of Sewanee are close-by. There you will find a coffee shop and boutique restaurants..
