About Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green

My partner Barb and myself were living together since 14 years. We finally got married in March 2015. We raised 3 children together and are now Grandmothers of 1 awesome little boy. I am originally from Germany and Barb grew up here, in Jamestown TN. We lived for years in several parts of Florida before we found our Dream House here, in Tennessee. We love traveling, swimming and just relaxing in nature. We have 2 large dogs, Great Pyrenese, Max and Sasha, who roam around the property.

Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Silke Wohlrab and Barbara Green chose Big South Fork

This property is secluded and right on a private lake but only a 5 minutes drive to Jamestown. Swimming on own risk, no Lifeguard on duty. We live on the property in a house beside the cabin and you may have to share the swimming area in the summer with us. But otherwise we give our guests all the privacy they want.

What makes this cottage unique

Private Lake.Swimming on own risk. No lifeguards on duty

10 stars if we could!! The ultimate in privacy. Great smaller cabin on a private lake!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for total piece and quiet, this place is it! It is located on a smaller private lake that provides the feel of a big lake without all the noise and activity that comes with a big lake. The owners cabin is a ways away and offset which maintains the privacy, plus they appear to go out of their way to ensure your privacy. The cabin itself is really well maintained and the two decks both provide great views! The dock is also well maintained, and the fact that it's covered provides flexibility related to the weather. There's also a nice winery about 10 miles away if you're into that sort of thing. Again, a really relaxing experience. My wife and I will definitely be back!!

Quiet, scenic, private, relaxing cottage

Had a wonderful 3 night stay at this quiet scenic lakeside house. Owners were very friendly and accommodating; ensured we had everything we needed while staying at the cottage. Highly recommend staying here and we plan on revisiting in the future.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here and it was amazing! Barb and Silka were so friendly and welcoming. They were great hosts! The lake was clean, quiet, and so peaceful. The kayaks were available also. This is a perfect lake for fishing or swimming. The house was a perfect retreat. They really thought of everything. Extra condiments, coffee, and shampoo etc... Even though it was on their property it was very relaxing and private. This was hands down the most relaxing trip we have had. We will definitely be returning.
