The Tom T. Hall Vacation Log Cabin... A Whole Home with The Whole Family for a Wholesome Vacation. Just south of the Tennessee/Kentucky border, this beautifully furnished musician's retreat rests on 16 secluded acres overlooking its own private pond for swimming and fishing. A canoe is provided at no charge. Spend hours rocking on porches enjoying the fresh mountain air surrounded by rustic beauty and solitude of the Cumberland Plateau. The property borders The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, offering white water canoeing and 150 miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking just outside your back door. Decorated with recording artist Tom T. Hall's and Music City memorabilia, the spacious 1800 square foot, log home spares no expense in offering guests luxurious comfort and name brand amenities. There are three bedrooms with one King Bed, Three Queens, Two Twin Bunks and Two Additional Single Floor Mattresses. This is the opposite of Gatlinburg or Panama City Beach with traffic and noise... this vacation is about spending quality time with family and friends while those 'stressed out and worried travelers' are at those 'stressed out and worried' vacation spots.

The Tom T. Hall Cabin is the perfect place for relaxing in a peaceful quiet setting. If your desire is to settle down with friends and family, read, play the piano, swim, fish, ride horses, white water canoe and hike nature trails this is the place! In the evenings take in an unrestricted view of the glorious night sky and stars in the six person hot tub or roast marsh-mellows over the open outdoor fire pit. Firewood is provided at no extra charge.

High Speed wireless internet service is provided as well as Four TV's with Dish Network Premium Movie Packages, DVR and Blu-Ray in Great Room. This is one of the best stocked kitchens you will ever find in a vacation rental! Check out what former guest have written and be sure to visit the Tom T Hall Cabin Facebook page and owner's website for more photos and info about the area. This property offers more for what is charged than any other rental in the area.

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.

Absolutely the best cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Tom T. Hall cabin. It was a perfect getaway for our family. Our boys are 4 and 6 and they loved exploring around the property, fishing in the lake, canoeing, sleeping in the cozy bunk beds, getting into the hot tub, playing horseshoe, and making s'mores by the fire. Dennis could not have been any nicer. He was so helpful and wanted to make sure that we had everything that we needed. I don't think there is a better cabin than this one. We look forward to coming back next year.

Cozy, well stocked

Our family had a great Christmas at the cabin. It’s clean, well stocked with lots of bedding, firewood and kitchen supplies. Dennis was great and provided tons of helpful info. We’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away and relax.

Amazing cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented lots of homes and cabins all over the USA and this is one of my absolute favorites. When Dennis tells you it’s well stocked, he’s not kidding. We had Thanksgiving dinner for 13 people and we had everything we needed. It’s on a beautiful piece of property, it’s cozy and quiet, and it’s perfect for spending time together. We really hope we can return in the summer to use the pond more and have more time to explore.
