  • A weekend in the woods.

    "The cabin was perfect for our stay away from it all. We sat on the porch with a great book. Walked through the trails around the house. Clifftops is wonderful with wildlife and a beautiful lake. We left wanting to buy our own piece of paradise. The house was clean and and had everything we needed. Thank you for sharing your home!"

  • Peaceful retreat.....relax, renew & rejuvenate

    "Our family was long over-due for a get-together and this was the perfect location. Wingshot Lodge was spacious and comfortable. It was so peaceful and quiet! The kitchen was amazing. The screened-in porch was so relaxing. The grandchildren loved the backyard playset. The swimming pool was great. And best of all were the memories that were made! Thanks for sharing!!! Sam & Lynda Kokomo, Indiana"

  • Is This Heaven? Pretty Darn Close to It!

    "To borrow the question from John Kinsella (actor Dwier Brown) to his son, Ray Kinsella (actor Kevin Costner) at the conclusion of the baseball film, "Field of Dreams": IS THIS HEAVEN? Answer: Sue & Andy's home may not be Heaven -- but it's the closest thing we've ever seen to it! Extraordinary hospitality and accommodations by Sue & Andy for 5 families, with almost enough sofa space for our daughter's sorority! As the saying goes, "Not a hair out of place!". Quiet, spacious home 10 minutes from Sewanee, tucked into the bucolic, Clifftops development (1.2 miles west of I-24), where families, students, et al, can enjoy the quiet and beautiful outdoors, entertain guests through leisurely cooking their own meals together, look up at the stars from the back deck, front & backyards, and then fall effortlessly into a deep, refreshing sleep where not a sound could heard (not even the bathrooms in the dead of night!). As background, we wisely rented Sue & Andy's home 3 years in advance of our then-freshman daughter's senior year events, immediately after departing from her first "Sewanee Family Weekend." We did so with only reading their website and talking with Sue by phone, because we wanted to mimic another family's very special -- quiet but festive, Clifftops gathering, doing the same for our daughter and her classmates. We recognized the potential to offer a needed "refuge" for the students to "hang out" (more like nap on the deck!) and a very relaxing place for parents to get to know each other. IT WORKED. The only thing we could not have have anticipated was how sincerely hospitable and inviting Sue & Andy would be. Wow. Their thoughtfulness alone makes them a "5 Star" hotel. The 4 families who stayed with us were elated, just as we were, at their and their college daughters' experience at Moongalbah, including a joint, "home-cooked dinner" with 40 others. Some of the students even napped on the soft chairs on the deck and on the sofas during the afternoon. When you stay at Sue & Andy's Moongalbah (Aboriginal for "resting place"), there is one sure guarantee: There is utterly NO CHANCE you will be sorry for staying there."

  • Breathtakingly beautiful ... inside and out! We had the most amazing family trip we've ever had!

    "I'm not sure I can summarize our trip in just a few words ... From the moment we turned into the driveway our mouths were open. The land, the house, the lake, the view are all utterly gorgeous! There were 10 adults and two children in our group. We arrived before the rest of our clan, and I loved showing each couple around the house and watching their faces as they took in every room and all the details ... and the deck with that amazing view! The furnishings and decorations are just perfect! Our group was our four children and their spouses, plus two grandkids. The bottom level with the bedroom housing two queen-sized beds and its own private bathroom was perfect for the parents with the two granddaughters (ages 10 and 7). The game room is also on this level, and we put an air mattress in the office for my son and his wife to have a private room as well. The other couples arrived first and snagged the upstairs bedrooms (we got the master, of course). ;) The bathrooms are beautifully updated with gorgeous tile and fixtures. The "car wash" shower in the master was awesome! The kitchen was perfect as we brought all of our food and drinks so we wouldn't have to leave the house! (Two refrigerators sure helped!) We did do the short drive to Greeter Falls and hiked down to swim at the bottom of the falls. That was so much fun, even though the falls weren't gushing that day. There was still plenty of water to swim! However, we didn't stay long since we wanted to get back to the house! Two of the guys spent many hours on the canoe jug fishing. Our granddaughters must have burned off 300,000 calories jumping off the dock into the lake and climbing back up the ladder. It was hard to keep them out of it! The garage full of floats was a pleasant surprise! Everybody enjoyed floating on the lake together. The paddle boat was so much fun, too! The girls had their little electric scooters with them and the driveway was perfect for that! The seven-year-old fell in love with the male donkey (and vice versa!) and didn't want to leave him. <3 We visited the momma and baby, too. One of my favorite spots was the rainbow hammock by the lake. So peaceful!! We loved hearing the geese fly over, sometimes "crash landing" into the lake. We played board games, foosball, ping pong and corn hole ... and enjoyed the fire pit on the last night. It was the perfect place for our family getaway. Time to decompress and reconnect with each other. Thank you for an amazing trip!"
