About the property

2 Bedroom, one bath with woodburning stove, 4 private acres

When you arrive at Hill Top Haven, one of the first things you will notice is the view of the valley. As you enjoy sitting on the large front porch, you will notice how the park like property is void of the normal man made noise, yet full of the sights, sounds, and smells of nature. The cabin is an open floor plan with cozy couch, 55 inch Smart TV next to a wood-burning stove.

After a busy day, rest in a King size bed or Full bunk beds that gives plenty of room for kids or another couple. Don't forget we have a queen size comfy sleeper.

The washer and dryer are located in the bathroom.

With our easy access kitchen, supplied with everything you need to fix a great meal, or BBQ some of your favorites outside on the grill on the fantastic covered porch. If you really want a break from cooking, Celina has a great Mexican restaurant or Meat and 3 that will satisfy, also, Gainesboro with its real English Pub.

The" Man Cave", is out back, check it out! Then stroll on down to our fire pit with grill top, at the end of the path overlooking the Cumberland River. It is a fantastic place to grill Hot Dogs, and fix Smores, all with a Million Dollar view!

About Jan West

We (there are 4 of us), love Tennessee, especially this part. Nashville is our hometown. Dale Hollow Lake is our favorite lake.

When we found this property, it was a no-brainer...had to have it!

We love the water, hills, valleys,wildlife and fresh air, its all right here.

Jan West purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jan West chose Celina

When looking for a getaway that could be shared with other guests, we knew it had to be private, with a huge front porch to hang out on, no matter what the weather. We wanted a clean, ranch style cabin. A wood burning stove was a must, as well as spacious, but maturely wooded acreage.

In other words, we were looking for a Park like setting...its all here!

What makes this cabin unique

Being here, and being quiet, you can see many deer resting on the valley below us, and as they travel around, you will see them hanging out by our fire-pit, licking on the salt block.

If you are real quiet, there are Great Horned Owls that will hang out in one of the trees near the cabin, or Bald Eagles off the Cumberland River View. The bird feeder out front is great for watching red birds, blue birds, and the occasional Gross Beak. Summer brings the Hummingbirds, lots of them!

Year round enjoy the many wild turkeys, and Red Fox that visit.

Of course, you are probably well aware that the World Record Smallmouth Bass came out of beautiful Dale Hollow Lake. But, did you know that the Cumberland River is also know for Brown Trout and Stripper fishing? And lets not forget the Obey River for Trout fishing and Canoeing.

Plan to spend a little time in Celina. We have never seen anyplace like it. Surrounded by 3 different water ways. Dale Hollow Lake, the Obey and Cumberland Rivers. There are several nice shops and restaurants. Celina has been able to preserve their small town charm even with all the attention that World Famous Dale Hollow Lake brings its way.

Another nearby town, Gainesboro, Tn has even more attractions such as restaurants, shops, and Civil War history.

Wonderful and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a perfect getaway for me and my husband. We originally booked it so we could have a place to see the eclipse in totality, but it turned into a lovely weekend trip. The cabin is very remote and we enjoyed complete solitude. We saw lots of deer, heard coyotes and had daily visits from hummingbirds. Mornings were perfect on the porch swing, listening to the cicadas singing. The cabin is well maintained and has a lot of cute extra touches....and Jan was so accommodating and quick to respond to our emails. There are things to do around the area...canoeing, hiking, etc....but we were only there for a long weekend and didn't leave the whole time! Thanks for a lovely trip!
