Need a break from the stress of city life? Do you enjoy outdoor activities? Come to the Cumberland Plateau and stay at the Carriage House. The Carriage House is ideal for Parents' Weekend, homecomings and graduations at the University of the South and St. Andrews Sewanee. If you love the outdoors South Cumberland State Park visitors and information center is about 7 minutes away. The park, which includes Sewanee Natural Bridge, Fiery Gizzard Trail, Foster Falls, Savage Gulf, Stone Door, Greeter Falls, Meadow Trail and Grundy Lakes has some of the most noted hiking trails in the country. If you truly need to relax go no further than the gardens and trails of the Carriage House. We are nestled approximately 2 miles from Highway 56 on part of a 400 acre farm. The Carriage House is the end of the trail and is quiet and peaceful. The butterfly garden attracts many visitors. It is filled with butterfly bushes, bee balm, lantana, phlox, lilies and of course, butterflies. Hostas, trilliums, and columbine make up the shade garden. Red buds, dogwoods and river birch are beautiful spring, summer and fall. A short walk away is the duck pond. The ducks are very friendly and love to be fed. Hopefully, you'll also see a visiting crane, deer or turkey. Bluebird trail leads to Bluebird Rock with its spectacular view of the gulf and Payne's Cove.
My wife and I are retired teachers. She has several piano students and, in fact, the Carriage House is her music studio when we have no guests. We are animal lovers and currently have two Poms, a Great Pyrenees, a bobtail German Shepherd, and two lucky cats.

We've dreamed of a home on the bluff for years.
Seclusion. We live almost two miles from the highway, with no through traffic, one neighbor across the creek, bluff views and miles to walk in all directions.
Beautiful area with great hosts
We had such a lovely experience at the Carriage House. Our stay was short but very memorable!
We were greeted first by the owners dogs - Roxie, Charley and Izzy. What a nice welcoming committee! The grounds of the property are beautiful and the Carriage House very well appointed and clean. Everything you can think of is already in place. Our first morning Roxie and Charley took us on a guided tour of the grounds and never left our side even when we went much slower than they would have liked. (hehe) They brought us to the bluff and then around to the duck pond and right back out onto the drive where they then left us to go exploring on their own.
The Carriage House is not only a beautiful setting on its own, but it is just a short drive to amazing hiking opportunities. The owners are attentive and kind and have all the information you would need to have a great time. I would not hesitate to recommend the Carriage House to anyone I knew, and we will most certainly be back for another (hopefully longer) stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House for our anniversary. We had such a relaxing weekend sleeping in and enjoying a leisurely breakfast in the little dining room overlooking a gorgeous view. We are hikers, so the fact that many of South Cumberland State Park's trails were within a few minutes' drive was a plus! We even enjoyed walking on the trail to the overlook right there on the property and with the Delozier's sweet dogs as our guides.
The apartment was very clean and the view was unbelievable. We felt very much at home and welcomed. The nearby town of Sewanee is also worth a drive to see. The college campus is gorgeous and we found a wonderful little restaurant serving delicious Singaporean food called Crossroads. We had an absolutely perfect stay in the beautiful little apartment and hope to come again!
The Carriage House was one of the highlights on our stay in Tennessee. The location was very convenient to the University, even though it was in a rural area. The loft is very private and quiet. I have never stayed in a rental that was as well equipped has the loft and it was immaculate! The hiking trails, the chickens and I can't forget the 2 most friendly dogs in the world Charley and Roxy. You have choices when visiting the area but I guarantee you The Carriage House is the best!
We were last minute in making our plans for our anniversary weekend getaway. Jim responded promptly to the inquiry, and we booked it. It was just what we needed! The Carriage House is a lovely apartment, completely furnished and comfortably appointed. The area surrounding the homes are well kept and encourage you to get out and look around. The walking trail is well marked, and Roxie is a great guide. It is easy to access the park areas from here, and the surrounding area is full of opportunities to explore. There are places to eat to suit anyones' taste preferences in Monteagle and Sewannee, from fast food to fine dining. Jim and Mel are wonderful, friendly hosts, and great sources of information. We hope to get back again sometime. My one bit of advice would be to be sure to arrive in the daylight hours, as the turn into Adams Road is a little difficult, and with out knowing where you are going, could be easily missed in the dark!
We are located atop the plateau about 1.5 miles from Highway 56. We are surrounded by state parks, Savage Gulf, Foster Falls, Fiery Gizzard, and and other parts of the South Cumberland State Park. You might be interested in seeing the historic coke ovens or walking the trails around Tracy Lakes. After your hike, visit the oldest bakery in Tennessee, The Dutch Maid Bakery. University of the South is only a short distance away where cultural activities abound. Concerts, plays, and guests speakers are regular fare. Head in the opposite direction and visit Beersheba Springs with its historic Methodist Assembly Grounds and its original log homes.
If you are hungry a 10 minute drive takes you to Monteagle for fast food or relaxed dining. The Smoke House offers live music on weekends. High Point provides historic dining on the summit between Chicago and Miami. Local legend has it that Al Capone stayed at High Point on trips between his Chicago and Florida homes. Some of the best barbecue, anywhere, can be found at Smokin B's.
If you want to stay closer to home we are located on a 400 acre farm with several miles of bluff views, walking trails, and roads. Bring your camera.

The reservation software asks for payment on the day the reservation is made, even if it's 5 minutes to midnight. Please pay at your convenience. Also, instead of tax not included, the listing should state that there is no tax. Also, the payment requests states that you should call before paying. If you're using a credit card I see no need to call, unless that's something you want to do.
