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 Big South Fork

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.

Peaceful, relaxing... mixed with some adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from an awesome week-long stay at this beautiful cabin. Dennis, the owner, makes sure you have everything one would need for a great stay. He even gave us advise on where to take our car when we thought we were having car trouble. Luckily, it was fixable with just a stop at O'Reilly's. We have stayed at several cabins in the past and this was BY FAR the most well-stocked and definitely the cleanest...and with the most down to earth, personable owner. You can tell that Dennis takes alot of pride in his cabin and he truly wants others to enjoy it. He also sent out the most complete list of things to do and even emailed us a heads up the week before we left to let us know what was going on in the area for the week we would be staying. That was so appreciated and it's little things like that will always make this cabin stand out. The first two days we were there, we just enjoyed lounging around the cabin, sitting on the deck by the pond...fishing and sunning. One day we had the most beautiful rain storm and we sat on the porch on the rocking chairs... listening to the rain and thunder. The porch is wide with a large overhang, so we stayed completely dry while the rain pounded down all around us. That will be a great memory. When we were ready to leave the cabin for the day, we chose to go horseback riding. Luckily, Dennis had Southeast Pack Trips as a suggested activity on his website. Larry, the owner, took us on the most amazing 1/2 day adventure through beautiful trails and forest and creeks in Big South Fork and on his surrounding land. It was the best horseback riding we ever experienced! He customized our trip to be exactly what we wanted to do. We told him we wanted more adventure and he definitely gave us that! The horses were beautiful and well trained. The next day we went on a "River and Rail" all day trip with Sheltowee Trace Outfitters. It was an 8 hr day trip that first took us on the Big South Fork Railway through the old coal mining towns and then canoeing down the river for about 2 hrs. It was very well organized and also included a nice packed lunch in a souvenir lunch bag. We had a wonderful and memorable time at Tom T Hall cabin. Thanks Dennis, for sharing your beautiful spot in the world! We hope to come back for a visit again.

Beautiful, Private, Every Detail Covered, Dog Friendly, Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best cabin we've ever rented! Dennis was super responsive and friendly during the booking process, and as soon as we walked in the door of the property we could tell he has put a great deal of time and thought into what his renters would need. The cabin is laid out really well, it's beautiful inside, and the place is the best stocked rental we've ever seen. Dennis thought of everything. Every kitchen tool you'll ever need, satellite tv, cozy linens & comfy beds, upgraded shower heads, hair dryers, board games, fishing poles... even thoughtfully placed bottle openers and sticks for roasting marshmallows. We visited for 3 nights, during winter, and we were totally entertained the entire time without having to leave the property. Our toddler absolutely loved fishing, the canoe, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit and the hot tub. It was also so nice to be able to bring our dog with us. Usually any trip is accompanied with the stress and cost of finding him a nice place to stay while we are gone. This time we were able to take off last-minute with no hassle. We will absolutely be renting again and will be bringing friends and family with us. Such a quick 3 hour drive from Nashville- this will be a go-to for us! Thank you Dennis!

Owner's Response: The shower heads are pretty cool... don't know what else to say about that since you covered it pretty well. You were the first to use the new bottle opener on the bottom deck but we'll keep 'em in suspense on why it's worth bringing up. Really enjoyed getting to know you even though you aren't the international super star you share a name with. This is a wonderful review and I can't thank you enough. Get back over there!

Perfect setting, great home

  • 5 of 5

Recently came for a short guys weekend and couldn't have been happier. The front yard is very flat with lots of open space, but still secluded. The pond out back is awesome. The home is perfect and the Traeger pellet smoker is aweome, we did a brisket and BBQ and it was super easy. Overall great property and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: So glad you used and were so happy using the Traeger Wood Fired Grill. It really is a treat for grilling, smoking, baking, roasting, braising and BBQing. (Yes... I am Nashville's Platinum Traeger Dealer).

Private, Secluded, Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay. The cabin is so well-maintained that it feels new in many ways. It is extremely clean, spacious, comfortable, and appointed with everything needed, plus lots of extras. Our dogs were very safe, the property is located at the dead end of a seldom used gravel road. The pond is easily assessable from all sides as well as stairs into the water. The hot tub is clean and roomy. The property owner was responsive, accommodating and friendly. We look forward to returning!

Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

This was beyond expectations and exactly what I wanted. Very private and quiet and in the forest. My work in the fall is non-stop and I need RnR and my dogs need attention. I wanted to have my dogs with me and to hike and we were able to do that out the front door or with a short drive. Relaxing by the fire or in the hot tub was heavenly. The cabin, as advertised, had everything and more that I needed. Owner was exceptionally responsive. I'll be back!
