We rented Wingshot for our family Christmas gathering. It's a beautiful home in a great location; private, yet not too isolated. Lots to do for everyone. Kitchen is great for cooking and gathering around. We particularly enjoyed just sitting around the fireplace in the family room, watching our old family videos, and catching up. There was plenty of firewood on hand for a nice, warm fire in the fireplace. The bedrooms are all beautifully done and very comfortable. The owner went out of her way to make our stay wonderful and was a joy to work with.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners were very kind and helpful! They responded immediately to our questions. The house is comfortable and well appointed, plenty of room for everyone and plenty of room for parking. We especially appreciated the big fireplace (with lots of firewood just outside) and the kitchen. The huge refrigerator is a real plus with a large group and the two ovens and convection oven made the dishes for our Thanksgiving dinner all come out even! We walked a lot in Clifftops and hiked in Sewanee; the house is convenient to all the services on the mountain, particularly the Piggly Wiggly. Our family played lots of pool and the younger children loved the swings and slides. We hope to come again next year.

Monteagle Reunion Weekend

  • 4 of 5

For the past several years, close friends who own a home in Clifftops have convened a reunion for about 20 college classmates. While the festivities were elsewhere, several of us stayed at Wingshot Lodge, which was close to our friends' home. There was plenty of room for our group of 8. Everyone had a bedroom with a couple of bedrooms to spare. This is obviously a place where the family gathers to play: pool table, foosball, pinball machine all present. WIFI worked fine throughout the house. We didn't use any of the electronics, but it might have been nice to have instructions for the stereo/TV's. The kitchen was well equipped, large refrigerator with plenty of room for food for group meals, big stove, the family who owns this home clearly cooks for a lot of people when they are here. Only thing missing was a toaster or toaster oven. Wingshot Lodge is great for families or groups of friends reuniting and enjoying the beautiful Monteagle/Sewanee area

Great for Group of Families

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for a Sewanee reunion with growing families. Tons of space for adults and kids; very comfortable. Jennifer is very easy to communicate with, and when we had a minor issue with one of the bathrooms the property managers were very responsive. This was our second time staying at Wingshot with a large group, and we will definitely stay again!
