About Darlene Neeley

The Cowboy Inn is family owned and operated. We treat every customer like they were a part of our family. We live here in Byrdstown, so if you have any problems we can correct them immediately. We want your stay away from home to be GREAT! Enjoy your vacation on Beautiful Dale Hollow Lake.

We moved here from the Cincinnati OH area to pursue retirement on Dale Hollow Lake! We bought our first house the Cowboy Inn in 2001. It was on a rental program until we retired here in 2005. We then bought another house and moved out of the Cowboy Inn so it could be put back on the rental program. We recently purchased the Lighthouse to add to our rentals.We love this area and all it has to offer and we love sharing this little piece of heaven with our guests. All of our children are grown with children of their own, but they enjoy spending time here on the lake. We are local residents. We retired here 11 years ago. This area is a little bit of heaven.

Darlene Neeley purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Darlene Neeley chose Tennessee

This cabin is in rural setting with very few full time residents. Located on a no outlet street with little traffic, depending on the time of year. There is plenty of parking for cars, boats, and trailers. Extra parking across the street in the open area. Easy access to two Marinas.

New flooring in the Master bedroom, family room, downstairs hall and downstairs bathroom.

What makes this cabin unique

There are three covered decks....so even if it is raining you can enjoy being outside. The one back deck has two ceiling fans to help keep you cool in the summer. There are two gas fireplaces to warm you in the fall and winter. Snuggle up on the couch with the fireplace going, kick off your boots, and enjoy the view.

We took a family vacation here with some friends. There was 4 adults and 6 children. This place was absolutely incredible! We had plenty of room for all 10 of us. The set up was great for us too. We plan to come back to here again. The owners are very nice people and will answer any questions you may have. Can't wait to come back!

Great place for a get-away

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The view was beautiful!! Lots of room.. The beds were comfortable except for the bunk bed room. Bunk beds and fold out couch were not very comfortable. The owners were prompt in responding to any questions we may have had. We were not able to get the hot tub warmer than 96 degrees. I would visit this cabin again and would recommend it to others. Thank you for allowing us to stay here:)

Owner's Response: Sorry you couldn't get the hottub warmer than 97. It is a brand new hottub. If you would have called we maybe could have resolved the problem. Hot tub had a bad circuit and has been fixed! Sorry about the bunks and pull out not being comfortable for you. It is usually kids that stay in that room and they never complain. Bunk bed and pull outs are usually not very comfy. Hope you enjoyed your stay and hope you consider us for future vacations. Thanks again, Jeff & Darlene

Wonderful, through and through. The cowboy inn was much more than i could have expected.

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and i decided we needed a vacation, a Tennessee vacation. My search for cabins landed us here at the Cowboy Inn. The cabin was beautiful, and there was more than enough space to accommodate all 8 of us, comfortably. The lake view from the back deck, was absolutely stunning, kinda surreal. I knew I always loved Tennessee in the fall, and this vacation proved that to be true. We enjoyed a hike to the cave at Cordell Hall, and that too was quite breathtaking. Overall we definitely enjoyed our stay, plan to come back, and will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends!

The Cowboy Inn was exactly what we were looking for.

It was absolutely beautiful, with great views.

There were deer in the back yard everyday that we stayed!

The lake was a real short drive and many attractions nearby.

Cant wait to stay again!

Our stay here was absolutely phenomenal.

  • 5 of 5

The cowboy inn is a wonderful escape to a quiet getaway. The view was awesome, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and inviting. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals. We took all food needed for the trip as our daughter has a medically required gluten free diet. The bed on the main floor was very comfortable which is where we slept. We definitely enjoyed the hot tub, and we recommend as soon as you get there, turning the heat all the way up so when you want to get in, it's very warm. It was very clean! We had little ones, so keep in mind there are wooden steps, which can be very slippery. we just had to really watch our 17 month old. We took our boat and there was plenty of room for parking and the closest marina was about 5 minutes away and very quiet and convenient. We can't say enough good things about the place! Privacy was not an issue in the least. If you are looking for a quiet, secluded, private getaway, then we definitely recommend the cowboy inn! If we had to list a complaint, it would be there was some junk left on the bottom deck and ground underneath not thrown away from possibly some remodeling work. We stayed primarily on the main and top floors though, so it wasn't a big deal. Maybe get that cleaned up and thrown away? Other than that, fantastic stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to do a review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We had just put in new flooring, that is why the construction stuff was there. We did the flooring and painting in a three day span! Again thank you for choosing us and we hope you will come back soon! Jeff & Darlene

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cowboy Inn Cabin. It was very clean and well cared for . Nice big porch to have coffee on in the mornings and the kitchen was well stocked. We would highly recommend staying there.
