Nippersink Lodge and B&B is beautiful, comfortable, vintage, rustic. It reminds me of the historic lodges in the national parks out West. The secluded location steps away from the calm, scenic Little River is Outstanding for anyone who likes paddling, nature, quiet, beauty. The nearby DeSoto Falls and stunning "brow" overlook of the Cumberland Plateau are interesting and beautiful.

Nippersink Lodge is a wonderful bed n breakfast just down the road from DeSoto Falls. Ms. Teresa is a wonderful host. The lodge is roomy, rooms are spacious and clean and you're only a short walk down to the river. Breakfast is outstanding. Kayaking is available and all equipment provided. Internet and cell service is limited if available at all...

We had a great time this weekend at the Nippersink Lodge B&B.. It was very relaxing and Theresa was a great host. Teddy was very sweet and made us miss our furry four legged child. Breakfast was simple but good.. It wasn't as hot as I thought it would be since the lodge has no AC.. We ate at 2...

Nippersink Lodge Bed & Breakfast was built in 1934. My wife and I stayed for the weekend and had a great time hiking in near by DeSoto Park and Little River Canyon. One thing to note is that there is no air conditioning, but don't worry. These houses were designed with that in mind. I was amazed at how comfortable...

We stayed at the Nippersink Lodge in June. It was warm, and I was concerned about the lack of air conditioning, but I shouldn't have worried. The huge screened-in porch has 2 ceiling fans, and the rooms all have floor/portable fans. The temperature is cooler in the mountains, and falling asleep to the sounds of the crickets, owls and other...

We had a bit of trouble finding the lodge since it was our first visit to the area, but it was well worth it. We were greeted by Therese and Teddy, both very friendly but Teddy won't give up his ball for you to throw until you've passed his dog-lover sensors. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable....

Very relaxed, quiet, almost-no-phone-reception peaceful. The cabin features a huge living room with massive stone fireplace. Perfect shady porch. The main decorations are hundreds - probably thousands - of books on shelves that line the walls. The place feels like it was built in the thirties or forties and decorated in the 70s, then left alone. Our hostess (Teresa, I...

Checked in on a Friday afternoon for a three-day weekend. Enjoyed beautiful weather, rustic but comfortable lodgings, great breakfasts. Went on a long hike with a local guide who took us to caves, the foot of DeSoto falls, and scenic overlooks. Enjoyed sitting in a rocker on the back porch in the evening, reading and listening to the owls. With...

Wanted to get away for the weekend and came across this B&B. Rustic Cabin takes you back. Everything is made of wood/stone as the Lodge has been there well over 50 years and the decor was wonderful. Rooms are located upstairs so be prepared to climb and overlook the living area. Air conditioning is not available but rooms have fans...

“There was good wi-fi in the dining area but not in the rooms. Not a problem. If it is hot, request a room downstairs.”
