Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 3 Couches, Full Kitchen, Mountain And Valley Views.

Do you really want to get away from it all and take a step back in time? Make your way to our cabin that overlooks part of the Savage Gulf State Natural Area, and it sits on the edge of a bluff which has a great 180 degree unobstructed views of the mountains and valley. There are family-friendly activities such as a basketball court, tennis court, and hiking. You’ll love our place because of the coziness and how rustic it is. Great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids older than 2 years old), and medium size groups.

10 minutes to groceries, gas and other essentials; 36 minutes to The Caverns (new home of the PBS series "Bluegrass Underground", and a truly unique year-round live music venue); 5 minutes to the Savage Gulf/Stone Door area of South Cumberland State Park (at 31,000 acres, Tennessee's largest state park, famous for its waterfalls, vistas, hiking, backpacking); 35 minutes to Monteagle and the Fiery Gizzard area of the State Park; 45 minutes to Sewanee and the University of the South. This is a great 'base camp' from which you can take easy day trips to some of the best Tennessee has to offer: 1hr 18minutes to Chattanooga's Tennessee Aquarium, Rock City, Ruby Falls and other attractions; 1hr 12 minutes to Jack Daniel and George Dickel distillery tours or to Fall Creek Falls State Park (highest waterfall in the eastern U.S.); 1hr 45 minutes to Huntsville (AL)'s U.S. Space and Rocket Center or Nashville's Music Row, or 2 hrs to white water rafting on the Ocoee or Hiwassee Rivers. All the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains without all the crowds!

Activities on the property include hiking, basketball, and tennis. The property sits on 12 acres and you do not see any other man made structures in the view from the back porch.

The wood on the main part of this cabin comes from an old farm house that was built in the 1800s an hour away from Beersheba Springs, torn down, and reassembled at its current location.

The large porches provide a wonderful outdoor living space that helps you soak in that 180 degree view of the mountains and valley below. There is even a couch swing so you can take a nap or enjoy the view with several of your closest friends or family.

There is a working wood burning fire place that helps add even more charm to your stay.

Outside of the basketball and tennis courts there is a game and puzzle closet to keep you busy on those cold and rainy days. There is also life size jenga as well as a cornhole set located in the downstairs bedroom.

This cabin has everything you need to truly relax and spend quality time with your closest friends and family.

Local activities within a five mile radius include Greeter Falls and Stone Door which is part of Savage Gulf State Park.

About Alfred Stewart

This is our family's cabin that we built in 1981. It has been in our family ever sense.

We grew up in the Franklin area just south of Nashville, TN.

We have a passion for working hard, being outside, and spending quality time with our friends and family as well as helping others any chance we get.

Alfred Stewart purchased this cabin in 1981

Why Alfred Stewart chose Beersheba Springs

Our family has been coming to Beersheba Springs, TN since the early 1900s. It started with my great grandfather and we have been going up there ever since.

Going to Beersheba helps us push the reset button on our busy day to day life that we live.

The rustic feel of the cabin and the rich history of Beersheba Springs creates an atmosphere that dates back to the 1800s which is actually how old the wood is that currently makes up the main part of the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

It has a front porch swing as well as a church pew and a Jack Daniels barrel we store wood in for the fireplace.

The back porch has a 180 degree unobstructed view of the mountains and valley below. Our favorite feature is the couch swing on the back porch.

The cabin has many puzzles and board games as well as a basketball and tennis courts.

It sits on 12 acres of land that you have full access to.

We enjoyed the house, deck, view, and the ability to have room to get the whole family together.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was very enjoyable. You are in a wooded area so there were bugs & spiders, but we expected that. We also enjoyed the 2 parks & hiking trails nearby. If opportunity arises, we would definitely consider going back.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beersheba Springs cabin!!! Very peaceful and relaxing. We were going to take a day trip into Chattanooga and decided to do some hiking locally so we would be closer to the cabin. Again, we loved it and will definitely be back soon.

This cabin delivered an absolutely beautiful and peaceful retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin. We had plenty of room to sleep, eat, relax, and visit. The view from the amazing back deck were breathtaking. The only regret was not doing my research on the exact location We were almost a good hour from Sewanee. The drive had to be made several times with three different commitments

I would highly recommend this cabin as long as you don’t need to be in Monteagle or Sewanee during the stay.

Owner's Response: Hey Amy! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. You are correct, it is not a short drive from Beersheba Springs to Monteagle or Sewanee. Usually about a 45 min drive each way. I hope you guys are able to stay in the area next time and enjoy all the hiking Savage Gulf State Park has to offer. It is only a 5 min drive from the cabin. Thanks for staying with us!
