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.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family (7 adults) spent the Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin and it was an all around wonderful experience. The property is well taken care, very clean, and definitely the most well stocked property I have ever rented. The lay out of the bedrooms/bathrooms gives people lots of privacy. Even though it feels cozy, the community spaces are big enough to not feel overcrowded. Two different living room type areas gives people opportunity to watch different shows or have a separate kids area. The fire place is a really nice addition for everyone to gather around and enjoy. Bill communicated check in updates and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We took some nice walks around the property when we wanted to get out. It does feel really secluded, but we got to the little town center or the Piggly Wiggly in less than 15 minutes. We had no complaints at all!

Fully Equiped Cabin Close to Sewanee

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was great for Sewanee Homecoming. With all the bedrooms and bathrooms it easily worked for the 9 of us. We had everything we needed and more and the location was close enough to campus but at the same time isolated with beautiful surroundings. Great place for a large group to enjoy both Sewanee and relaxation!

Best cabin we've stayed in during our 4 years of parents weekends at Sewanee

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at the cabin for parents weekend. In 4 years of Parent's Weekends, this place offered the best balance of all places we have stayed. Very convenient to the University, and a calm Oasis to retreat to after attending a party elsewhere. I only wish it was available for Commencement!

Thanks Bill - we loved our stay and enjoyed getting to know you.

Perfectly appointed adorable cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! Six-person family stayed for a wedding at Sewanee. The Cabin has such wonderful character and charm, it made the stay so pleasant. On top of that, even the smallest details are taken care of. Everything is neatly organized and anything you could want is provided. Clean, comfortable, cozy. What more could you ask! The owners did a fantastic job of making this a top notch home rental.

Quiet & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for my husband's 50th birthday celebration. It was awesome! I have never stayed in a condor/home that was this well stocked! They had everything there that we could need or want. The beds were comfortable & the cabin was clean! Very private & peaceful! We hope to be back soon!
