Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cabin in Sewanee - The Cabin

5 bedroom, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, pond view

The Cabin at Muggs Pond

Built in 1975 and remodeled in 2006, The Cabin at Muggs Pond offers the perfect amount of mountain seclusion just 10 minutes (and three stop signs) away from The University of the South and St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School campuses. Full of rustic charm and eclectic flare, The Cabin also comes equipped with all the modern necessities and features you need during a weekend getaway or an extended vacation.

Step outside The Cabin’s back door to easily access a 1¾ mile trail perfect for walking, running or biking. Take the short walk down to Muggs Pond for plenty of fishing, canoeing and swimming. Enjoy morning cups of coffee or evening cocktails on The Cabin’s covered back porch. Grill up delicious dinners on The Cabin’s large side deck, complete with built-in bench seating.

The Cabin's great room includes a beautiful stained-glass window and large mountain stone fireplace, fully stocked with firewood for cold winter nights. Each of the bedrooms on the main level has its own 1/2 bath (toilet and sink) and shares a tub shower with an adjoining bedroom. The Cabin’s original full bath is also located on the main level, off of the kitchen. Walk up the spiral staircase to reach The Cabin’s loft bedroom, which has a cozy sitting area/den adjacent to it ideal for reading books, watching movies or playing board games with friends.

Excellent for any occasion (Myers Point, a favorite venue for Sewanee weddings and receptions; is only 1/4 mile away!), The Cabin is sure to make your trip to the mountain one to remember.

Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is 11:00 am.

Had a great time for our reunion weekend and a perfect place to stay. Shared house with 3 other couples and plenty of room. Definitely recommend as a place to stay if coming to Sewanee.

WONDERFUL IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the world and experience the beauty of nature, this is the place to be! We had a group of 6 and had more than enough room and beds for everyone. The setting is breathtaking....the sounds and beauty of nature abound....and the stars shine so brightly. The cabin was warm and cozy with interesting artwork (especially above the fireplace!). The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of towels, good wifi, plenty of firewood....all the amenities of home. Wish we could have stayed longer....but plan to come back! THANK YOU for a wonderful stay:)

Thank you ! Warm and inviting home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin in the woods! Very nicely appointed home. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare any meal. Four bedrooms with connecting Jack and Jill bathrooms. The fifth bedroom was up a spiral staircase with a sitting room and bedroom. Wonderful back porch that we truly enjoyed.

Comfortable cabin in a forest setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a week before my daughter's wedding at Myer's Point. The cabin living area was comfortable and cozy, while the bedrooms and bathrooms were modern and bright. There was plenty of room for seven of us, and the loft bedroom was perfect for a younger guest. We had a couple of parties prior to the wedding. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare both meals and serve everyone. But the best part of the cabin was the beautiful setting on Mugg's Pond. It is surrounded by a natural forest with birds and wildlife. And nothing could be better than sitting on the porch during a summer afternoon rainstorm. We plan to go back for a relaxed vacation in the near future. Even though the setting feels remote, there is easy access to both Sewanee and Monteagle. If you are going to spend a week or weekend at Sewanee, don't stay in a motel but rather stay here.
