Guestbook comments from the owner

The owner of this property was great, quick to respond and has put the little touches in the property that makes all the difference. Every need thought of in this top notch rental. The property is new and spacious (the pictures don't show how large the space is). We had a family reunion of 12 people, and were able to rent the cabin next door. The combination of these made a perfect family getaway. The cabin comfortably accommodated 6 adults. Most time was spent on the deck enjoying the views, hummingbirds and hot tub. The local Piggly Wiggly provided all our cooking/grilling needs and we enjoyed hikes at the University of the South and Foster Falls (bring your swim trunks). Highly recommended!!

Perfect Cabin for our family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We had an event at The University of the South in Sewanee and we wanted to be able to host our family for a couple of days. Renee was immediately responsive to my inquiry and helped me determine which of her two properties would be best suited to our family's needs. Throughout the booking process and leading up to our time at Monteagle Cabin, Renee was always attentive to us.

The Monteagle Cabin is a great space with comfortable common areas and a well-supplied kitchen. The view is spectacular (altho at this time of the year the late afternoon sun is a bit rough). Love that tree that gives some early shade!! We spent our early mornings watching the hummingbirds and deer and our evenings star-gazing.

This location is perfect for any kind of event in the area (especially Sewanee events). The access is paved road all of the way (unlike many cabins we have rented in the past). We were pleased that no one was in houses on either side of us during our time there as they are in close proximity to Monteagle Cabin. Our last night we had planned to use the hot tub but got to enjoy a wonderful storm that moved in from the West instead. We love weather events so this was exciting for us!

We love the Monteagle/Sewanee area so we definitely will hope to return to Monteagle Cabin. Thank you so much for making this property available!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us at Monteagle Cabin. Your review means so much to us. We are thrilled that our cabin was the perfect location to host your family while attending such a special function at the University of the South-Sewanee. The back deck is my favorite place to be too... Morning or night! Especially watching the bluff view in the evening change with every movement of the setting sun. Just beautiful! The hummingbirds and passing deer are amazing to watch too. I am sure that your return to the Domain was a lovely heartfelt one. I am further excited hear about your retirement prospects to the area. The mountain definitely has a way of offering a layer of "southern charming" to all who visit. Many blessings to you and your family. I look forward to your return. Best!

College Visit

  • 5 of 5

What a great cabin. I thought the photos looked nice but they truly don't do the cabin or the views justice. The cabin is cozy yet roomy. Everything looks rustic but it's all very new. The views are amazing. We loved sitting on the porch watching the humming birds. I highly recommend staying here. Thank you for a great weekend!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend we had in Lil' Bear Cabin! The view from the porch is outstanding, the cabin well set up and maintained. Located with easy access to all the sights in the area. We brought a lot of cooking items we didn't need because the kitchen is well stocked.

This beautiful log cabin was quite perfect. It had a beautiful overlook and plenty of space for the seven of us, and room still when my brother and his girls joined us the second night. We spent one day visiting Rock City (fun and whimiscal) which is about an hour from the cabin. There are also some state parks located nearby that we had hoped to visit but we were deterred by some rain. What we did get to see however was the beauty of the steam rising in the overlook, it was quite breathtaking.
