Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to bring the family. Breath taking views with a even better place to relax. Loved the house and the porch made me never want to go home. This house makes you feel like your staying with family . My only complaint is we didn’t stay longer . Next time we come down we will just stay at the cottage and not just use it like a hotel. Mary thanks for the fresh eggs . Beautiful cottage beautiful area

A peaceful cabin close to many middle TN places

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was just right for our two kids and our dog. Nice, quiet area. We were able to visit Chattanooga with ease. We also spent time in Cookeville and visited many state parks in the area.

Beautiful cabin feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin. It was gorgeous and there was snow on the front steps upon arriving. There was plenty of home items to make us very comfortable. They even put in a new couch with is not pictured here yet but it’s so comfortable and even had usb charging ports. I would definitely stay again. The kids were able to play outside without any worries while I cooked dinner and dad started the fire. Definitely worth every penny.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We wanted some place close to where we live without the long hour drive and this place did not disappoint. The cabin had everything we needed and more. We are going to keep this in mind for future staycation.

Awesome cabin

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome! Cabin is large and very clean. Only issue is a new grill is needed. Took 25 minutes to cook on it. Otherwise it is highly recommended. We much appreciated the stay!

Perfect for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as shown on the VRBO website and Mary was so helpful. The kitchen is well-equipped and quite large and the beds are super comfortable. The wood-burning fireplace was the cherry on top!
