About Laura Heeke

I grew up in Rogersville and this was our families farm. My husband and I have the passion to save it and let others enjoy what we do.

Laura Heeke purchased this cabin in 1960

Why Laura Heeke chose Rogersville

This is my family farm. I was blessed to be the one to carry on to save the farm. My father bought the farm in the 1960s and in 1976 he found the cabin in a neighboring community, bought it, and he and one other man tore it down, piece by piece, numbered each one and put it back on his property. Each cut of wood has his touch and heart in it. I played on this farm as a child, picked strawberries to sell to friends, laid tobacco stakes for my brothers to stalk rows of tobacco, rode our horses, feed our cows, and made castles in the hay loft. Even though it is not a working farm today, we hope it brings back a simpler time in life. There is additional cabins on the property that my parents built together. They collected antiques and made a wonderful little piece of history on the back of the farm. It is now in disrepair, but we hope to be able to save some of it, but it is available to explore.

Great family vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Rogersville, TN before. We looked for a halfway place for our family scattered from PA, Fl., AR, and MS. for Thanksgiving.

If you are looking for quaint, off the beaten path, yet close to town, this is your place. Our little grand boys had a blast! Our teenage grandchildren, well they’re teenagers who were concerned they didn’t had great cell service. Our adult children and husbands loved it, and all left saying it was one of our best Thanksgiving get togethers.

One of our daughters had car problems and the local Heritage Motors were super and used their mechanic to fix the problem. The town is charming and the people are very friendly..

We had a few hiccups but the owners were very responsive and helpful.

A great family weekend

  • 5 of 5

The entire family loved this home and property. So historice, but with upgraded amenities. A firepit with a great view, hiking with a better view and visiting nearby local spots were highlights. We ate in most meals - the grill is great and kitchen too. The beds are very comfortable - we slept great. I'd suggest visiting Amos Mill Eatery as well - wonderful spot and not far away at all. The family was talking of making a return trip before the weekend was ever over! Laura was great to work with as well. This place is a true gem!

Great house great property great area

  • 5 of 5

Great place to be in the mountains surrounded by the feeling of love and sights of nature. We stayed a week but wanted to stay a lifetime. This old place is updated to the fullest. Plenty to do within a short drive. Don't overlook this place

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a delight! I booked the cabin for my wife's birthday weekend, she loved it. The cabin had the "home" atmosphere and charm she loves. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet weekend get away. It is conveniently located to lots of historic landmarks and small town shops. I would have given it 10 stars if they were available. Thanks form making our trip so enjoyable!

Great mixture of history and modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this historic log farmhouse was an adventure. A week was not long enough to see the treasures within the house and the surrounding countryside. Front porch for morning coffee and back patio with new gas grill for evenings. Every room was inviting and offered nostalgic treasures. Hope owner will put screens on windows before fall. Would love to come back then and enjoy cool days and evenings.

Owner's Response: Betty, we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We like to share our family heirloom and know that others enjoy it as much we do. Now about the screens......boy, I wish I knew where those went. I know some windows have them, but to get them for those old aluminium windows.....I will have to keep an eye out. We have thought of replacing the windows and that may be in the future. Come on back anyway, every season has its treasure.
