Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great trip to Spencer, Tn. We enjoyed the firepit and porch swings. We hiked at Fall Creek Falls and visited Chattanooga. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend. Thank you for your hospitality!

It was great

  • 5 of 5

Nanas and Papas nest was everything promised and more. we relaxed in the cabin and out side on the deck with just the breeze blowing through the trees. It was quiet and peaceful. Mary was always available when needed and to answer any questions we had. everything was clean with plenty of linens and instructions for everything. It was great and we would come back in a minute. If you are looking for peace and relaxation this is the place. Mike and Sandy K

Well maintained and well cared for cabin

  • 5 of 5

We went for a relaxing - commune with nature trip and that’s exactly what we found. Cabin is great with lots of outdoor space for sitting and relaxing. Barbecue was essential for grilling our fresh purchased corn from the nearby Mennonite community where fresh jam, tomatoes and corn were a must. The State Parks were beautiful, stunning view with waterfalls and was terrific for hiking and the serendipitous finds were the Cumberland Caverns which was a great guided tour and the Calf Killer Brewery in nearby Sparta. So perfect.

Amazing get away!

  • 5 of 5

our four ladies group had a fantastic time! we enjoyed the environment, the seclusion, the outdoors and inside were both great.

loved sipping coffee on the front porch swings every morning.

The bed in the master could have been bigger, it was a little small for two people to share. Great place to stay all in all I would highly recommend it!!!

Best rental

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was such a pleasure. The owner has thought of everything! I've rented a few houses in the past, but this one is by far the best in every sense. We were looking for a relaxing weekend away, and this was just perfect. The appliances are top notch, the beds are insanely comfortable, and the indoor lighting is better than my own home. Also, there are many different seating areas that were just a hit with us. This property is well-maintained - a home away from home. Very impressed. The owner even called us before we were set to arrive to let us know the house was ready early for our arrival.

Car: necessary

Whether you decide to stay close to the Nest and spend you days at Fall Creek Falls or Rock Island State Park, there is so much more to do within such a short distance.

Visit Chattanooga's award winning Aquiarium, Rock City, or the beautifull downtown area loaded with dining options and sightseeing! Nashville is just 2 hrs away as well.
