About Dennis Sheffield
My name is Dennis Sheffield. (2nd from the left between Earnest T. Bass and Barn). I have lived in Nashville since 1991 but am originally from Marianna Florida, a small town in the panhandle about 50 miles north of the Gulf Coast. (Florida State Seminole Country - 1981 Alum) I own a promotional products and T-Shirt business, and am one of the top Traeger Wood Fired Grill Dealers in the South. I know how to sing a good song and can tell funny jokes. I'm single and in search of a wealthy 90 something (female) to marry with a really bad cough.
Dennis Sheffield purchased this Cabin in 1997
Why Dennis Sheffield chose Oneida
After living on the North Florida Gulf Coast and observing what made vacation rentals succeed, I spent years looking for a new development in the Tennessee mountains. I wanted undiscovered country since Gatlinburg reminded me too much of Panama City Beach. Sharing space, restaurants and Highways with millions of tourists was not my idea of relaxing. While driving in North East Tennessee one weekend I happened onto the Big South Fork National River and Recreational Area after being lost. This was the beautiful secluded river with high bluffs, incredible natural settings (but no tourists) I had dreamed about. Bought the land, created a large pond between the ridges and built a fantastic log home. The legendary singer/song writer, Tom T. Hall, liked it so much he said I could name it after him if he and Dixie could stay and write songs from time to time. Great folks - very generous arrangement.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is the most relaxing place you could ever imagine. I tell people there's nothing to do but ya don't have enough time to do it all. I usually never leave the cabin for days at a time after hiking, swimming, fishing, love cooking in that incredible well stocked kitchen, grilling and smoking on the Traeger Wood Pellet Grill, reading, and playing music. There is a great Yamaha upright piano that fills the home with harmonics. Sitting in the hot tub gazing at night skies that are like nothing I've ever seen in the south. You can pick out satellites and shooting stars streaming across the heavens. Rocking outside on the covered porches or out on the dock reading while enjoying the north western breezes enjoying the quite solitude makes for the perfect get a way from it all vacation I've ever experienced. It's a hard place to leave once you've unwound. I also wanted to provide a place that families would enjoy for gatherings and vacations. Kids really love the pond and hiking into the Big South Fork Park, horseback trail riding and the train to the old mining camp in Stearns KY are highlights for guests. And of course the Big South Fork River for rafting and white water canoeing is spectacular. There are beautiful hiking trails along the river to Angle Falls and other points that are considered the best trails in the country.

Just what we were looking for...
Beautiful woodland cabin
Gorgeous location and fabulous amenities. Truly felt like we could get away from it all.
The perfect get-away for this nature girl and her pups. Dennis is incredibly thoughtful with all the nice touches in the house and with his availability. His detail on maintaining the house is much appreciated as it's clear he really cares. By providing his expectations to renters this property is the cleanest and best appointed rental I've visited. This is my second time here (a few years back) and it's my first choice for when I need to hit reset. Just walk out the door with dogs and walk as far as you like in wonderful forest. Thanks Dennis!!
Thank You Meredith. Enjoyed our talks and appreciate your love for the Plateau and Big South Fork. Please return soon.
Great family time
Every thing was wonderful, we think our family may have started a new tradition, doing away with the old one and making a new one.
Property was very well laid out and clean..
cabin was one of the best we ever rented..
Dennis was great to communicate with
Overall I'd recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a place to relax and enjoy!! Thanks again Dennis for sharing it with us...
Thank You, Steve.
We have been renting cabins at least twice a year for 20 plus years. We usually rent in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area and enjoyed those trips. However, I was searching for a place where my family could enjoy simply spending time together and not rushing from one attraction to another. This is it! We rented the Tom T. Hall cabin for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The setting of this cabin is very special. It is large enough so that you don't think there is another soul around you. The last morning we were there, I walked to the dock and sat there amazed at the beauty of God's creation. If you are searching for a cabin that is truly relaxing to connect with loved ones, this is the place. Dennis was great to work with, the process couldn't have been easier. We are looking forward to booking the cabin again in a few months.
Thank You So Much Patty! You all were wonderful guests and I look foward to having you back.
