About Brenda Lees

My husband and I (married 32 years) and our two daughters, have always enjoyed the outdoors. We dreamed of owning a cabin where we could enjoy our family and our horses. We are both native Tennesseans and put down roots in Middle TN to raise our kids. My passion is equine rescue, and I spend most of my spare time trying to make a difference and educate people on animal welfare. We currently have several equine rescues, as well as several dogs n cats!

Brenda Lees purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Brenda Lees chose Oneida

Our familly spent the last several years going to different destinations to hit the trails. In 2010 we decided to stay in the GRITS cabin and explore the Big South area. We found ourselves going back to this area, and when the cabin went up for sale, we made the decision we had to have this piece of paradise!

What makes this cabin unique

GRITS (Girls Raised in the South), is such a great location to enjoy the BSF. Ride from the barn right onto the trailhead, and miles of trails. We love sitting in the hot tub and building a fire when the season turns cool. Sitting on the screened in porch and listening to the bullfrogs and the crickets makes the work week a memory.

Everything about this cabin, the barn and turnout spaces, the indoor and outdoor living area was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room to be together or spread out. The owner, Brenda went above and beyond to assist us with any and everything we needed. We will stay again and bring more Indiana folks down to see this special area of Tennessee.

We stayed at GRITS for a work trip that we had in the area. This cabin was the perfect respite to come home to after a long day. Sitting in the hot tub watching college football on the outdoor TV and the outdoor fireplace could not have made for a better weekend. In fact, we were originally supposed to leave after 4 nights and move to a hotel after the majority of our group left, but ended up extending our stay at GRITS because it was so comfortable, relaxing, secure feeling and best of all affordable. Thank you Brenda for being so accommodating and communicative. We are hoping to be back in November for our follow up meeting and will absolutely book GRITS again if it is available.

The cabin was just as advertised. Clean, fully stocked kitchen, clean hot tub. 7 male mountain bikers had a wonderful time. Satellite was appreciated for Saturday football. The cabin was spacious and comfortable.

My wife and I did not want to leave this cabin. Its very well decorated and well stocked. We loved having coffee on the screened in deck in the morning and watching the deer from the deck before it got dark at night. I dont think our dog wanted to leave either. Since we are atv riders it was nice to have a short drive to brimestone but it would be perfect for people with horses. Cant wait to be able to rent it again. Thanks

GRITS cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin is awesome. The bedroom and bathroom accommodations are wonderful for a large number of people. The out door spaces make it easy to spread out and enjoy Mother Nature. As always the horse trails are great fun to ride.
