Our Stay Was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't really describe how much we enjoyed out stay. This cute studio has everything you need and is beautifully and tastefully decorated with antiques. We enjoyed the spacious kitchen, the nice living space, the hot tub and the beautiful view. This studio was perfect for our "Girls Weekend" getaway, but we were close enough to Nashville to spend one of our afternoons/evenings there as well. The owners live on the property and could not be any nicer! We met them the first night when we arrived and did not see them again until the morning we were supposed to leave. We had car trouble right as we were leaving to go home, and the owners were super helpful in recommending a tow truck and nearby dealership, and made sure we had everything we needed until we could get back on the road again. Super sweet owners, wonderful view, and nice studio. We will definitely be returning in the future and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in the mountains.

A lovely place to relax!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week on our honeymoon. This is a very nice cabin, tastefully decorated, private, and comfortable. Carla is an excellent host. The kitchen is very nice, and was stocked with some food, so we didn't have to go buy our own right away. We would definitely recommend this place!!

Caption says it all. Carla and Howard are very gracious hosts. We especially enjoyed the butterfly garden and the hummingbirds. Oh, yeah, and the geckos, too!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for an affordable relaxing getaway close to home with amazing views. What we got was so much more.

The property is situated back in the foothills above a river and lake. Very well maintained with a cute gazebo fully set up with furniture for you to relax in. The main (owner's) house and small greenhouse are situated adjacent to the rental home but in a way to afford you total privacy. The rental is huge. It has a large patio with lounging furniture, grill and hot tub. The view of the lake is simply gorgeous! The patio is fully covered so you can enjoy if raining. We spent one afternoon in the hot tub while it rained which was so relaxing. You enter the rental on the ground floor which has a large entryway with a full bathroom which is perfect for taking a shower after using the hot tub or if you need to use the facilities while enjoying the covered porch. The landscape is filled with flowers and plants that beg for butterflies and hummingbirds to play in. We even saw a bit of wildlife with a young deer frolicking on the hillside with it's mama and sibling.

You proceed up the stairs and through a doorway to a huge open room which has a large kitchen fully stocked (a chef's dream) overlooking a dining area, living room with comfortable furniture around a TV and another eating area. I believe the TV is a 55" flatscreen with a DVD, stereo and surround sound equipment. They have Direct TV so you can veg out in front of the TV or enjoy a movie which we did on a few occasions. There is a full bathroom with tub/shower before the kitchen. Two bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds. A queen in one and a full and twin in the larger bedroom. Off the larger bedroom is a huge deck with lounging furniture and table if you want to enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the peaceful surroundings. A nearby chicken coop provides fresh eggs the owners stocked in the fridge. There is nothing you will lack in the kitchen and we were very impressed with how well stocked it was with everything you will need to cook meals. The home is decorated with beautiful antiques that give it a homey atmosphere.

The absolute best part of our visit were the owners Carla and Howard. They are so accommodating if you should need anything. We loved getting to know them. Really good people we felt like we had known forever. It was hard to leave and we cannot wait to come back and see them again. By far the best rental experience we have ever had.

Owner's Response: Your review absolutely blows me away. I feel like we have been blessed every day we wake up here.The fact that we can share it with such a lovely couple as you makes it so much more precious. We want you to feel free to come back and visit us and share some of Howard's pixie dust on the hill. Again. Thank you!
