It was a terrific week for the three of us (all adults) as we enjoyed the peaceful and serene quietness of the “Tennessee Teepee “ cabin located on a small street directly on the water. Yes, there was a major highway on the other side of the river, but the noise didn’t bother us. The cabin had ample room with a rather large kitchen/dining area full of windows. The first thing we noticed was the cleanliness of the entire premises, inside and out. Be prepared! It is rustic with uneven floors. That adds to the charm. Plenty of space with two great screened in porches; one in the front and one in the back.

The three of us all agreed that the shower was our nemesis. Poorly constructed, it is almost impossible to properly bathe. Needs to be replaced, pronto! It would have been nice to have had a small closet or hanging rack in each bedroom for clothes. There were hooks on the doors that were inadequate. Bring your own hangers! Also unique is that towels must be hung in the bedroom because the bathroom is too small to accommodate any towel racks.

The owners were so nice and want you to be pleased with their charming cabin. I would, and probably will, rent there again. It was a nice experience on “the peaceful side of the mountain.”

Cute cabin for families!

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in the cabin! It gives you a country feel and has a pretty view. It is very cute, cozy and warm. The front porch is roomy and we enjoyed the checkers! It is close to the main road and close to town. Our only criticism is that some important items were not stocked. We had to buy paper towels and kitchen sponges along with a early morning trip to the store to find out we were left with only one roll of toilet paper for a family of 5 staying 4 nights. Bring your own hairdryer too.

Bathroom was very tiny but worth the inconvenience to be right on the creek. We would definitely stay here again.

Awesome location, Beds and lighting was ok.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were very happy with the cabin. Although the beds were very uncomfortable and the doors did not shut and one was falling off. Looking past all that we would definitely stay again. Awesome location to the dragon and other towns.
