"This property listing's description was accurate, and the cabin was just like the photos provided--a cool, cute and cozy cabin. Plenty of towels and wash cloths, toilet paper, laundry detergent, dish & dishwasher detergent, soap, so it was nice to not have to bring those items along or buy them after arrival. So great to have a washer and dryer!
The setting, in a lightly wooded area with a beautiful creek below, was beautiful. The property is part of a larger, historic parcel of land, and the information provided about the history was interesting. It wast quiet and private, yet was actually very close to everything you may need. The large porch overlooking the creek was nice. The location was central to several other areas we were visiting (Kingsport, Douglas Lake, Bays Mountain Park, Warrior's Path State Park, Briar Hill Farms, etc.), and served as our "home base".
The owner, Jake, was very pleasant and helpful, and quick to respond to emails and phone calls.
We ate at The Mill restaurant one night, also owned by the property owner, and it was packed with locals and visitors, and that, too, was a good experience. Good food and friendly service while overlooking the creek and the little dam and waterfall.
I would definitely recommend this to family and friends, not only for the great cabin, but also for nearby attractions, such as the Ebbing and Flowing stream, the dam and falls, the restaurant, the Thomas Amis house, and the proximity to all that Kingsport has to offer. Also nearby, in Gray, TN is the Natural History Museum, where an extremely important archaeological dig is ongoing.
The only negative comments are that the kitchen needs a cutting board, the floors of the cabin were not as clean as I would have wanted, and the sofa bed mattress is extremely uncomfortable, but children could probably manage it okay. Adding a railing in the loft would feel a bit safer, as would completing the railing on one end of the porch. But even with those few complaints, I STILL would highly recommend the place to friends and family! It is an adorable little cabin!"
