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.

Perfect place for our family on "The Wedding Weekend"

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at this cabin for my daughter's wedding weekend. It was very spacious so that the 8 adults and 3 children didn't get in each others way! Everything is thoughtfully arranged and labeled for easy living. We would certainly come back again. Thanks for making the family feel so welcome and at home.

p.s. The children wished they could live there all the time (and I think the adults might feel the same way).

Everything You Could Want In A Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from my second stay at the Cabin at Muggs Pond, and I am already anticipating when I can next return. The Cabin really is everything you could want in a mountain cabin, and then some. Bill and Carrie are lovely and thoughtful hosts, and the Cabin is superbly and comfortably equipped. It would serve as a great home base, as you venture out to explore the beauty of Sewanee - but you may find yourself in danger of not wanting to leave! It is so comfortable and so inviting, that you may find it difficult to pry yourself away from reading on the back porch, or visiting around the firepit. The kitchen is simply the best equipped kitchen I have ever encountered in a VRBO home - there is easily service for 12+ people, plus all the equipment for any cooking you want to do. (Although, if you don't feel like cooking - you may want to give Big Marv's BBQ, down in Winchester, a yell. The man does it up right!)

I love that there are many large communal areas (the aforementioned back porch and fire pit; as well as the generously sized living area and kitchen) where you can gather with your family and friends. And when you start to feel overwhelmed from all that togetherness and need some quiet time to recharge - the 4 main floor bedrooms are large and comfy, and the loft bedroom has a separate small seating area - so you can carve out some quiet space as needed.

I love the layout of the 4 bedrooms on the main floor - they are arranged as Jack and Jill suites; each pair of two rooms share a shower/tub, but each has its own separate toilet/sink area. This just gives everyone a little more privacy than you often find when traveling in a larger group.

The Perfect Sewanee Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend staying at the cabin at muggs pond. It was big enough to accommodate all eleven of us (plus kids!) and came complete with a beautiful back porch, fire pit and canoes! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Thank you!

Rustic Luxury

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this cabin justice. Settled into a gorgeous woodland setting, the cabin is an a beautiful mix of old and new. We had 4 grandparents, couples and kids and everyone at every age enjoyed it. Our hosts had so many little touches including tealights around the cabin, motion sensitive nighlights in the bathrooms, so-white linens and firewood stacked and ready to light in the fireplace. While this might be a "cabin", you will love your cozy and luxurious stay.
