Welcome to Hollerback Hunt and Yacht Club! Just kidding, there is no Hollerin', Huntin' or Yachtin', but if peace and quiet is what you're after then this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We welcome those who enjoy nature and can appreciate and maintain the peaceful atmosphere that we and our neighbors cherish.
We are located an hour and a half from both Nashville and Chattanooga, and 45 minutes from Sewanee, in Altamont, TN on Monteagle Mountain at approximately 2000 ft. elevation. Our temperatures are 10-15 degrees cooler up on the mountain than in the cities
We are a family friendly retro cottage cabin nestled in the trees on our 6 wooded acres next to a 10 acre spring fed lake which keeps it full pool year round as well as our own private dock and sun deck for swimming, sunning, floating, catch and release fishing and paddle boating.
Well behaved pets are welcome for a small fee but must be on a leash when off the property. They are also allowed at most local hiking spots.
Bring whatever you have that floats or use our 10 ft John Boat. (sorry no outboard motors allowed, but battery powered trolling and old school paddling are ok) Please be gentle with it when launching, do not drop it or drag it on the ground to prevent damage and leaks.

Neighbors, we love them and ask that you not trespass on their property, not allow pets to roam the neighborhood, and keep music and noise to a minimum. (We're in a holler don't cha know and sound does echo, thus the name Hollerback)
FIREFLIES, lots of them around sunset. Just like stars in the trees.
BATS, yes, bats nest along the bluff and appear every night to eat Mosquitos, so we don't have many! but bring bug spray just in case.
HUMMINGBIRDS, if the feeders are out you are welcome to add nectar to them. (1/4 cup sugar, to 1 cup boiling water, let cool, fill feeders) They put on a great show all day long near the front porch.
DEER, they love to come to the salt lick outside the kitchen window. No hunting please, but feel free to shoot them with a camera if you are lucky enough to see them.
RACOONS, so lock up that trash in the metal can near the gate and don't forget to use the strap to keep them from getting into it, they are very clever.
BEARS, just kidding, we have no bears!
