Are you an animal lover who would love to vacation at a place where there is peace and quiet as well as all kinds of animals, both domestic and wildlife, to watch? Do you stress when planning a vacation because you can’t bring your dog(s) along? Would you love to bring your horse(s) and ride some new trails? Would you like to have unlimited long distance calling available rather than trying to use your cell phone in our mountainous area? Then Cabin at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is the place for you. The cabin is situated on 17 acres of beautifully rolling hills directly below Meadow Creek Mountain. For your canine family members (we allow up to 5 dogs..size doesn't matter), we offer 1/2 -acre of fenced backyard so that they may run and frolic as well as a fenced deck. We've replaced the backyard fence and have added pictures showing the cabin with the new fence.

Our cabin has three bedrooms and two full baths. The Master bedroom has a king sized bed, and its own bathroom. The other two bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, a crock pot, electric roaster pan, coffee pot, toaster oven, four-slice toaster, and many other items for folks who want to do their own cooking. There is seating for 6 at the kitchen table.

The living room has a flat screen TV with both a DVD and VCR player available for your convenience.

The back porch is where everyone likes to sit and enjoy the view. There is a large hot tub on the deck with two separate sitting areas. We have a professional gas grill that is hooked up to our large propane tank so you will never have to worry about bringing your own propane. There are also BBQ utensils so you don't have to bring your own. The backyard and upper deck are fully fenced for the safe containment of your pets and younger children.

Our Farm:

We have a working farm in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest. Our farm is 100+ years old (it was originally a dairy farm back in 1900) and has an extensive history. The cabin was originally the hired man's house (although it has been totally renovated) and the 100+ farmhouse across the street is where we live. A road divides the cabin and the farmhouse which allows everyone to have their privacy. We will welcome our guests when they first check in to make sure everything is okay at the cabin. We are out and about twice a day to feed the Llamas and horses; if our guests have questions about the Llamas/horses or need our assistance at the cabin then we are available. Otherwise, we try and stay invisible so our guests have their privacy.

Our six equines (including a miniature mule and two miniature donkeys) will often come up to the back fence to welcome the “newcomers.” It’s amazing how many dogs have never been “up close and personal” with a horse! It will be like a dude ranch for you and your dogs!

Near sundown, our guests find it very entertaining to watch the donkeys at play. They will run and chase each other while kicking their hooves in the air. Most of our equines are rescued animals, so it’s especially heartwarming to see them enjoying life.

Bring Your Horse(s): For our guests who would like to bring their own horse, we offer a 2.5 acre guest pasture with a three-sided walk-in that can easily protect two horses. We even provide an electric fan in the shed when it’s hot!

You can park your horse trailer right next to the pasture. The guest pasture is very close to the cabin, maybe a one-minute walk. Once you have your horse(s) saddled, you ride down the pathway directly in front of the cabin which will take you toward the many horse/hiking trails that are offered in this area, within minutes you’ll be heading up to the Cherokee National Forest.

The Llamas: For those who may like more exotic animals, we have a working llama farm. Presently, we have 9 gelded males (3 are trained to pack); 10 breeding females; and 2 sires.

Take a look at the amenities area on our page to get an idea of other things that we have to offer. Included is an entertainment guide that will give you ideas of the entertainment available in this area. We have an entertainment notebook at the cabin that includes some additional ideas on some interesting things to check-out while you are here!

To get sense of what others think about our cabin, you may want to read our reviews. These will help you to determine if our cabin would fit your needs.

With all the farm animals and things to do in this area, we have never had anyone complain that they were bored staying at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm and Cabin Rental. We hope to see you soon!

About Ed or Ginny Miller

We are Ginny & Ed Miller. I'm a native Texan (with roots in Tennessee) while Ed is from Upstate New York. We lived in the Clear Lake City, Texas area for 21 years where we worked for NASA/Johnson Space Center. From Houston, we moved to Colorado Springs for a year and then Washington, DC for 17 years. Ed worked for the Department of Defense while I worked in the human resources field in several different industries.

Ed or Ginny Miller purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Ed or Ginny Miller chose Tennessee

Ed's brother moved to Parrottsville and was married here. The reception was held at a local resort within walking distance of our cabin. Family members stayed at the cabin prior to us purchasing it from the resort, less than 6 months later. We fell in love with the quiet beauty of this area. It took us almost 4 years before we were able to move to Parrottsville and enjoy this 'little piece of heaven' on a full-time basis.

What makes this cabin unique

The peace and quiet are something that can't be described. For people who live "life in the fast lane" the peacefulness of our farm can help our guests to become back "in balance." At night we don't have "light pollution" so the evening sky is beyond description. Many nights, we can see the Milky Way. Again, it's difficult to describe the beauty of walking outside and seeing a sky full of planets/stars with meteorites trailing across in the distance.

2nd Time at cabin , 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

It was our 2nd trip to the farm and we loved it just as much as our 1st stay. Our dogs enjoyed their stay as well. They were happy to be back too. I would like to stress that Ginny and Ed take great pride in their rental cabin. It is always clean and never a pet smell. They stock this cabin with supplies that you would never get at another cabin. We have stayed at other dog friendly cabins and never have they been stocked and as clean. We always had to bring toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, laundry detergent to other cabins but here they take great care of you. They take pride in their rental and that is obvious. It is a great cabin to relax at. Very peaceful. We will be back. Thank you Ginny and Ed.

Did it for the dogs, but we loved it too!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a pet-friendly vacation spot that our two dogs (a 75-pound rough collie and a 45 pound mix) could run and bark, while secured in a fenced area, and not worry about bothering the neighbors. This was the ticket! The fenced yard and the fenced porch - GREAT! The best part, we had just as much fun as those two crazy dogs (although we did not bark and run.)

Having our dogs able to run and bark and not have to be "shushing" them all the time was a wonderful week for all. As a matter of fact, on the day of our arrival, Ginny said, "Don't worry if your dogs bark, this is rural." Wow! That was so great to hear. So we heeded her advice and just let the days roll by without worry. However, the only thing our dogs wanted to bark at was the occasional car that went by down the side road - not often.

If you have read any of the other comments, you already know the cabin is clean and well-equipped. Every cooking device, utensil, pot, pan, ovenware, dish, glass that you could want is there to use. My kitchen seems sparse in comparison! The washer and dryer is a nice feature - don't have to pack as much because clean clothes are just a wash and dry away. As I have done in the past for other vacation homes, I brought the paper towels, TP, dish soap, garbage bags, etc, but this is absolutely unnecessary as Ginny says "Just bring your clothes and food, everything else is provided." Another thing that I loved - - a lot of vacation homes have that "owner's locked closet" which houses all the extra towels, bedding, paper products, laundry soap, etc., but that is not the case at Ginny and Ed's cabin, they leave all of these extras available for use during the vacation stay.

The animals - so fun! Llamas, horses, mule, donkeys, wild turkeys, the neighbor's free-range chickens, deer, and many different birds to watch. We so enjoyed watching the barn animals and the wild life. My husband was thrilled to see his first blue-bird and he said he saw the reddest cardinal he has ever seen in his life. We also saw some tit-mice which are so cute.

This was by far the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. As the title says, we went for dogs, but we enjoyed it just as much. We read books, soaked in the hot-tub, enjoyed the scenery from the great wrap-around porch, walked the dogs, played Scrabble (John is the champ), slept in and just had a great time.

If you are looking or relaxation, Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is the place!

Best vacation in Tennessee EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an awesome stay at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm. Coming around the corner to the cabin and there are the Llamas looking at us, my girls went crazy (so did I)!! The cabin is great, super clean and stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need while on vacation, they even offer grocery pick up prior to your arrival. The covered deck is amazing, I can see being able to sit there all day and just watch the day go by. This is the one vacation that we were very upset about leaving, we needed more time to continue to enjoy everything about the property and just sit back and relax. We cannot wait until we return, we know this is only cabin we will be staying at from now on.

The owners, Ed and Ginny are the nicest people you will ever meet, they are available for you if you have any concerns or if you just want to chat while they are feeding the Llamas....oh don't forget to ask how to greet a Llama!!!

We brought our two small dogs with us and the fenced yard is perfect, it is huge, they enjoyed seeing horses on one side and the llamas on the other.

We had a wonderful time, and are planning our next trip. If you want a truly amazing vacation, you HAVE to choose Autumn Dancer Llama Farm you will not regret it.

Perfect for Two AND Four Leggers!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great, relaxing getaway for you and your dogs, look no farther, Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is the perfect spot! The cabin is spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and cozy, and very well equipped with anything you need -- It's also child and DOG friendly! The cabin has amazing views from the porch, and I just wish the weather hadn't been so chilly so I could have enjoyed sitting outside. Our dogs could not have enjoyed their time any more either! The yard is dog friendly and is very secure and safe -- At night, the yard is well lit allowing you to let them out with no worries as well. Two of my dogs that came with me are 13 & 14 year old Golden Retrievers, and have mobility issues -- But they had no problem getting up the two steps onto the deck and back into the cabin.

The owners, Ed and Ginny are kind, gracious and thoughtful! They really have thought of everything you may need or want, and I really appreciated the offer to pick up any groceries for our stay. And while it is supposed to be a getaway, having satellite TV, Wi-Fi is nice to have access to. Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is truly a special place that is second to none, and we are looking forward to our next getaway!

Fifth stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our fifth stay at the Autumn Dancer Llama farm. Ginny and Ed have become our friends, not just people we rent a cabin from, This is perfectly maintained cabin and property. Ginny and Ed are happy to assist with any questions or issues. It is difficult to imagine a better family and pet friendly vacation destination than the Autumn Dancer Llama Farm. We are planning our sixth trip.

My 2 teenagers were not very excited when I told them that our family vacation was going to be in Tennessee, and that we were staying on a llama and horse farm. They wanted to go on a cruise, but we needed a vacation destination that would allow us to bring our 3 pups with us. Two pups are elderly and would not do well in a kennel. My teenagers soon changed their minds! They loved being able to watch the horses and llamas. Ginny was wonderful and even introduced them to the llamas. They both loved one of the llamas named Crystal. That was one of the highlights of our trip for sure! The cabin was so clean and had everything we possibly needed. We loved sitting out on the porch relaxing and my kids loved the hot tub. We spent a lot of time bonding as a family playing games and cards. My dogs were very comfortable and safe in the yard and the house. The yard is fenced and very large. My dogs were able to interact with one of the mules. Very fun to watch! They had never seen horses before, let alone meet one nose to nose. The cabin had everything we needed. We will definitely return there in the future! There was so much to do around there. My kids enjoyed zip lines, water parks, caves, and dinner shows. We ran out of time to do everything they wanted to do. They were both very happy we stayed there and would love to go back. I would definitely recommend this rental!
