About The Owner

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

This house will remind you of your grandmother's house, and when you stay here, you will not have a care in the world. At 'The Flarity House,' there is always a gentle breeze and clean air. The huge trees in the yard cast a comfortable shadow on the front porch. This house has more native shrubs, trees, and flowers in the yard than any house on Lookout Mountain. There are numerous outdoor recreation opportunities in the area; including, the lake with fish in the back yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great weekend getaway! Our 2 year old loved fishing in the pond with his daddy and watching the neighbor cows. Unfortunately, the rain cut out trip a little short but we hope to visit the area again soon!

Love Dori the dog that comes to visit. Beautiful pastures all around. Not much traffic on road. Beds slept great. Good cellphone service and able to use internet on phone.

Nice little farmhouse in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was close enough to all the places we visited and a nice quiet place where our small children could play without any worries. We hope to come back.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property reminded me of my childhood in an older home. It was very relaxing, since my wife and I had nothing to do, and we just wanted a weekend away together. Apparently, the home had been closed for a while, as there was a musty odor inside until we got the fan and A/C going. The odor went away after a while. Other than that, it was a nice getaway. The pond had a very large Turtle in it, and a 6 foot water moccasin swimming, so I didn't fish very long. Our small dogs enjoyed exploring the acreage.

Very quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this property and once again I loved it. The house feels like a home, like I am visiting my relatives. The owner is very nice and accommodating. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, this is the place! I really enjoyed burning fires in the woodstove in the evening. Just be sure to buy your groceries before you get to the property because there are not a lot of stores nearby. Mentone is only about 15-20 minutes away and there are a number of little cafes to visit. The state park and the waterfalls are phenomenal!!!
