Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

'The Briar Patch' welcomes you in this quiet wooded lot set on over five acres of land inside Clifftops Resort, a 2000 acre Gated Community on Monteagle Mountain. This wonderful Retreat sits on just over five acres of land and perfect for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life.

Enjoy the wild azaleas, the viburnum, and over 20 varieties of hydrangeas, and many other flowering finds in this spacious home deep within the woods. It is a perfect retreat for a family of several families to get away to renew your mind in the quiet setting deep within the woods.

The master bedroom, on the ground level has a queen-size bed with a nice large bath and a footed tub for relaxing. The upstairs has two queen-size bedrooms and then a children's room with three twin beds. These rooms share a spacious bath on the second floor. One of the queen bedrooms has it's own private bath.

The beautifully finished home has a spacious living room with a wonderful wood burning stove that keeps you warm on the cool evenings. The well stocked kitchen has a jenn air stove, microwave, and all the comforts of home.

Enjoy the nice evening sounds and the flowering trees in your favorite rocker on the porch that wraps around the front of the house. A wonderful place for a glass of wine and the sounds of the woods to keep you company. There is also a deck on the side to enjoy nature at it's best.

In Clifftops, you can enjoy the wonders in the woods with a 60 acre private lake including a beach. There are two club houses, a swimming pool, tennis courts, walking and jogging trails, horse stables, and a mountain overlook picnic area. You are only minutes away from the University of the South/Sewanee and St. Andrews School. There is a local fee market each weekend, and there are many restaurants, crafts, antiques, and stores near by. There are several state parks and hiking areas with spectacular falls and all levels of hiking trails very close by. There is even golf for those who can not stand a weekend away without their sticks.

Great in every way

  • 5 of 5

Love this comfortable, welcoming home. You immediately feel like it's your own home. Spacious and well equipped kitchen. All common areas are comfortable for a larger family or group of friends to gather and enjoy together time in this mountain retreat. Love the large porch, too! One of the better values on the mountain. We will absolutely return!

Quiet house in the woods with room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We rented "Briarpatch" during a recent trip to Sewanee and it was the perfect place to enjoy our morning cup of coffee and evening glass of wine while settling our children into school!

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in this lovely home on the mountain. Our three families met for a mini-reunion. We took full advantage of the large kitchen and dining areas. We also enjoyed sitting on the front porch enjoying the five acres of tranquility. We definitely plan to return in the upcoming years.

Wonderful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (7 kids) rented The Briar Patch as we moved our oldest into his Freshman dorm at Sewanee. It was a great house for us. Warm, cozy, relaxing home base between events at Sewanee throughout the weekend. The little ones explored the "woods" around the house. My wife & I enjoyed morning coffee on the spacious porches. The owner was gracious & kind. We're coming back!!!

The Briar Patch is a great place for families.

  • 5 of 5

This home is tucked away in the woods. The four bedrooms are well appointed and there are ample spaces in the house to relax as well as to dine. Clifftops is close to Monteagle and Sewanee and many wonderful hiking locations.
