|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Located on the leading edge of a 153 acre farm in the heart of West Tennessee, The Cottage is furnished in period antiques, full linens, full kitchen, full bath with vintage claw foot tub, and two charming bedrooms. Central heat/air, outdoor lounging area surrounded by perennial butterfly gardens, and views of pasture and farm. Private parking provided.
Guests enjoy full use of the Cottage and surrounding Cottage grounds, farm tour, and shopping at The Silo--our "on-farm" gift shop.
Looking for something a little more "hands on"?
We also strive to provide our guests the ability to dive into daily farm activities, if desired.
For off-farm activities, we happily direct our guests to area points of interest, historical sites, restaurants, and shopping.
Interaction with Guests
Farm interaction is provided at our guests' comfort level. Want to roll up your sleeves and dive right in? We would love it! Or, if you'd prefer, you can sit back, sip a cup of tea, and watch the world go by. It's all up to YOU! Guided and unguided hiking trips on our rolling acreage are available. Bring your cameras!
While a mere two miles outside the city limits, The Cottage lends itself to a bygone era—a time when life was slow and simple. In short, The Cottage allows our guests the opportunity to rest, relax, and participate in activities that they would otherwise never experience. At the farm, surrounded by hundreds of acres of agriculture and virgin woodland, our guests can learn about gardening, livestock, animal husbandry, crop harvesting, or any number of activities going on at the farm during their stay.
Horns and sirens, traffic and commerce are a rarity around here. Instead, guests will be bathed in the comfort sounds of the country—a donkey’s bray, a dog’s bark, a horse’s whinny, and, on occasion, our sheep’s graceful, signature baas.
Butterfly gardens, in full bloom most of the year, are just off the outdoor lounging area, so guests can expect a visit from the local hummingbirds (in season), graceful butterflies, and bumbling bees on the hunt for a load of pollen. Songbirds, deer, and turkey inhabit the woods and meadows all around. A good book and a cup of hot tea will round out a most enjoyable farm experience.
Come, enjoy the peace of the country!
There is no public transportation nearby. Guests must make use of their private vehicle for off-farm activities.
Other Things to Note
There are many things to do in West Tennessee within one hour of Stillwaters Farm. For off-farm activities, whether it is horseback riding, Civil War sightseeing, antiquing, fall foliage sightseeing, boating, dining out, or any of hundreds of other activities, we are happy to point our guests in the right direction.
The cottage was an extremely enjoyable home away. The house was cozy and felt just like being home. Also, has extremely comfortable beds. The owners were more than accommodating and their warm welcome made the vacation everything we could've hoped for. If we go to Tennessee again, we absolutely will visit the cottage again. Highly recommend this place!
Henderson, Tennessee, is a small rural college town just 15 minutes south of Jackson and 45 minutes north of the Mississippi state line. Daytrips to Memphis and Nashville are easy, and there are several state and national parks within easy reach.
