About the property

Three bedroom, three bath home in the mountains, surrounded by nature and views

Comfortable and contemporary cabin on 13 acres is located in the mountains of the Cumberland Plateau. Home is located near several Civil War historical sites and situated between three of the most beautiful state parks in East Tennessee: Fall Creek Falls State Park, Savage Gulf Natural Area and Rock Island State Park. House is 15 minutes from downtown Dunlap, 45 minutes from Chattanooga and the airport, 25 minutes from Soddy Daisy and 2 hours from Nashville.

Bring yourself or your family for a relaxing vacation you won't forget. The cabin is surrounded by nature but easy to get to with an expertly maintained gravel road .8 mile directly to the house with new paved streets and four lane highways at the end of the gravel road. Wake in the morning and sip coffee on the deck while quietly watching the deer, turkey and fox walk through the property all while enjoying the cool fresh mountain air, beautiful sunrise over the mountain and the sweet sounds of nature. Or, enjoy the steam sauna before or after your morning run or hike.

Bring your fishing poles if you like, as there is a gorgeous two hundred acre lake at Fall Creek Falls State Park 12 miles away where visitors can enjoy spending the day hiking in the mountains, fishing, canoeing or Kayaking.

Perfect quiet family getaway located in the Cumberland Plateau. In the heart of nature and close to several fantastic parks and historical civil war sites.

House is new, very comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for your stay from high speed internet, linens, towels, hair dryer, dishes, full cook wear and an outdoor state park style wood or charcoal burning grill for delicious BBQs.

large six person outdoor table with sun umbrella and chairs, four log rocking chairs and four super comfy, 'zero gravity' reclining chairs to relax in on the lawn. Close to major shopping and restaurants in Dunlap, Sparta, Soddy Daisy and Chattanooga.

Fine dining, night clubs, sea aquarium, museum and attractions offered in downtown Chattanooga, only 45 minutes away.

Property is located only 12 miles to Fall Creek Falls State Park and Savage Gulf Natural Area and 30 minutes from Rock Island State park, where visitors can enjoy many outdoor activities like: rock climbing, cycling, swimming, hiking, world class golfing, horseback riding, kayaking, boating, tennis, fishing, hunting, horseshoes, mountain biking, hang gliding, antiquing, sight seeing, wildlife viewing and much more.

There is so much to do and see, one trip will not be enough. Also check out other interesting places in the near like Cumberland Caverns, Rock City, Ruby Falls, Shiloh Civil War Battlefield or Look out Mountain in Chattanooga, just to name a few.

Make plans now, to visit during the summer season as the home fills up fast. The scenery and wildlife here is fascinating and romantic, especially up here in the mountains.

A wheel chair ramp is provided upon request for guests who require assistance.

For guests arriving by plane, rental cars are offered at the Chattanooga airport (CHA) and just outside the airport with a free shuttle provided to pick you up and take you back.

About Terri Ramsey

We are two sisters with a great love of nature and spending time together with family and friends. This is our way to accomplish both goals and hope you will enjoy the serenity we have.

Terri Ramsey purchased this house in 2010

Why Terri Ramsey chose Tennessee

This is not just a rental but our personal cabin which we have opened for others to enjoy. The original owner lovingly designed and built the home as his retirement destination before love took him to Hungary to be with his wife. You will feel all of the special touches that make this a special place. My sister and I purchased it because of our love of the outdoors, the peace and calm that nature provides, and being able to share time with family and friends.. The home is located a short distance between three of the most beautiful state parks you will find in East Tennessee. The house has everything you will need for a memorable stay that will surely bring you and your family back a second time.

What makes this house unique

Travelers will enjoy a unique quality vacation with their loved ones or a romantic getaway with each other. The cabin is luxurious, comfortable well equipped with everything you will need and well suited for those who are seeking adventure as well as peaceful mountain surrounds that inspire awe. Wildlife is abundant in the area and is best viewed while either sipping coffee on the front porch in the morning or while driving through one of the lovely state parks nearby with your family.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

This cabin is the absolute best ever!! When the former owner sold it to the new owners, always a little mindful of change but they are fantastic and have added some character of their own to the home!! Thanks for continuing to share this lovely home!! Happy New Year!!

Captivating Comfortable Cozy Cumberland Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Whether used as a base camp or secluded hideaway, this cabin will not disappoint! For our family it was a base camp for exploring the area. We stayed over the long Thanksgiving weekend; enjoying hiking and a holiday meal at nearby Fall Creek Falls State Park (the falls were dry) a 'day after' ranger led hike on the downstream trail at Rock Island State Park (the falls were running) and ventured to the Chattanooga riverwalk on Saturday. It was good to return to the cabin each afternoon, with its large windows looking out into the nearby woods. The leaves had fallen off most the trees on the property, but seeing the structure of the woods is no less impresive this close up. We kept warm in the evening with the great wood stove in the living room, and the ample supply of wood provided. We were somewhat disappointed with the outdoor fire ban, but the glass door on the wood stove made for a good visual experiencre. There was plenty of counter space and assorted kitchen gadgetry available, including a dishwasher, for our meal making. Our beds were very comfortable and the bedding was of good quality providing everyone a good nights rest. All the sleeping areas offer a view across the deck into the woods each morning. There were plenty of towels for bathing in any of the three baths, as well as the outdoor sauna. Having a washer and dryer available was nice. We appreciate the thought that Randy put into building the cabin, as well as the generosity of Terri in continuing to share this special place with others.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience. We love that you had a great time and were able to enjoy some of the beauty of the area. My sister and I were finally able to enjoy our first weekend there since purchasing the cabin from Randy. We added another couch and some cozy throw blankets, a bigger TV, and a larger dining table to make it easier for large groups to enjoy the fellowship with their family and friends. New pictures will be uploaded shortly!!

Beautiful location for fall colors!! Great home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our family to meet. We had family coming from multiple locations and we love the layout of the home with split bedroom floor plan and three great bathrooms. The clawfoot tub in the master bedroom was beautiful. The beds are very comfortable.

I would highly recommend this home!!

Beautiful,scenic, private home with everything you need. if your visiting FCF, this is the spot

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for larger groups, home is very private and is stocked with everything you need. The only things you need to bring is personal items and food. There was some games which occupied our younger people. We dined on the deck several evenings. It's so perfect. It was so nice to be able to wash our clothing before leaving, because it's tiring after vacation to go home unpack and wash up. The owner and keepers were so nice to check in on us and ask if everything was okay and if we were enjoying ourselfs , it's also a tremendous value for larger groups and we were also so thankful to bring our fur babies.We're hoping to get booked in for years to come.

Castle Rock

Dog friendly cabin

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean, private cottage with all amenities as listed on well-maintained property. The owner/manager representative was timely and thorough in communication. Great area for dogs to walk about and stretch legs. We spent our entire two days at the property to relax though we didn't make it to the sauna. We did find that the highway noise is a bit loud with trucks downshifting and with periods of heavy traffic. We've dropped the rating from 5 to 4 for only that reason. Perhaps a fountain in the front would help drown out that noise. Would recommend this property all the same.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your specific feedback and the helpful suggestion. It is the first time I have received this feedback so I appreciate it. We have plans to enhance the outdoor area with a larger fire pit and sitting area. We will look at incorporating your suggestion. Thanks again for taking the time to provide feedback. I hope you will come back to check on our improvements!
