Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Bedding for 4/max 6)On 2.5 Acres W/ A Treehouse

“Rustic Retreat' - Come stay in my Cabin and feel the warmth that I have created in this special home built in 2005 by the local Mennonites. This home is 1 1/2 miles from HWY 111, located in a Log Home community called 'Cozy Cabin Retreat' on a secluded 2.5 acres. No Highway noise here, just peace and quiet and lots of stars! Whether you come for a short weekend or a longer stay, you are sure to relax and enjoy small town living and all the beauty that the Cumberland Plateau offers. One of the special features of this home is the Custom Treehouse and will provide hours of activity for the children! The front porch has a screened in porch that provides an additional outdoor dining area and rockers to rock off the stress of everyday life. Out the back door boasts an elevated large deck that will also provide additional outdoor dining and lounging and overlooks the lush hardwood forest. My home has been decorated with pieces of history that I have found from locals but also has all of the luxuries one would want.

Relaxation is priority, so we have provided high quality bedding and linens. This home has all of the modern conveniences but will take you back in time when things were simpler...

About Mary Newman

I have many years experience in the Hospitality Industry and I had the pleasure of renting my home that I currently live in, prior to moving to Tennessee full time. I enjoyed sharing my home with families that were coming to the area to enjoy family vacations together. Once moving to Tennessee full time, we longed for the opportunity to find the perfect getaway to share once again. With the help of supportive family members and friends we have made this possible. I look forward to meeting new families and sharing all that this beautiful area has to offer. Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Mary Newman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Newman chose Fall Creek Falls

This area is rich in nature and small town culture. Fall Creek Falls is the backdrop for this area, which is why I fell in love with this area almost 10 years ago, and provides days of activities. Whether you choose to go on day trips every day and back to a campfire at night, or just relax indoors at Rustic Retreat, we are sure you will enjoy your stay.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are looking for a home 'off the beaten path' and far away enough from the Highways, this is it!!! Enjoy sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs reading a book or just relaxing. Watch the hummingbirds come within your reach! Make a fire outside in the fire pit in the evenings and have a glass of wine or roast a marshmallow! Enjoy taking day trips to Fall Creek Falls, Burgess Falls, Rock Island State parks and enjoy the waterfalls, hiking, swimming in the falls and have a picnic lunch. Take a trip to Chattanooga to visit the art bluff district and have a gourmet lunch or go to the aquarium.

Great long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. We love the secluded area away from it all. Close to the caverns for Bluegrass Underground. Try the fresh eggs provided by host. They were great.

Mary was helpful and responds quick with any info you need.

Will probably be back again.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend at the Rustic Retreat was a peaceful getaway from the busy city we live in. It was clean, well stocked with basic supplies and very quiet. It afforded us the opportunity to just relax and unwind, although our time there flew by much too quickly.

Home away for home!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing....It was welcoming, warm, clean, and cozy. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook yummy meals. At night we sat by the fire pit with a bottle of wine and gaze at the stars, too numerous to count. The bed was super comfy allowing us to get well needed rest . The whole time we were there we only noticed one car passing by outfront it was super quiet and secluded. Yet there were several parks and some great shopping to be had. Would definitely recommend and we hope to make it back one day. Thanks for sharing this space with us, John and Michelle
