Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

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.

About Jim DeLozier

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.

Jim DeLozier purchased this apartment in 1948

Why Jim DeLozier chose Tennessee

We've dreamed of a home on the bluff for years.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Peaceful Retreat

Very accommodating hosts. The apartment has everything you need. Slept great in the comfortable bed. Enjoyed the deck outside. Very quiet. Want to come back in the fall when the leaves change.

Clean, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is very clean and surround by beautiful big woods. This was a great alternative to staying at a hotel and it is PET FRIENDLY which can be challenging when looking for a nice place to stay. If we come back to the area, we will stay again.

Quaint cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the Carraige House. Our kitty felt right at home too. We wanted to cook and the kitchen utensils were a little sparse but everything else was perfect! Loved the cozy fireplace and homey decor. It was nice to know the owners were right across the road. I smiled every time I was greeted by the sweet doggies. We can't wait to come back!

Mountain Weekend with pals

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin! We had a great time hanging around the house at night- watching movies and playing the piano! We spent most of the days hiking around, Fiery Gizzard and Buggytop trails. The dogs and chickens were a lot of fun! Thanks Jim and Mel!!! We loved the place

Peaceful country living

  • 5 of 5

I could not have chosen a better place to stay for my vacation. It was calm, peaceful, beautiful and just what I needed to recharge my batteries. I work with people all day every day, so I needed a place to get away. This was perfect. The owners, Jim and Melba, provided me with a Thanksgiving plate - thank you, it was delicious!! - and honored my need for quiet and calm while I was here. If you are looking for a cozy place to unwind away from the chaos and congestion of the city, this is the place to stay. I will be back.

Location

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.
