“Adorable cabin away from it all”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My son and I wanted to take a short trip from the Nashville area to stay in a cozy cabin without driving all the way to the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge area. This cabin was ideal! Our favorites: 1.) The hot tub: wow! What a lovely way to end the night both nights. It was large, super clean and very relaxing. The first night I could see lightning over the distant hills. 2.) Howard's helpfulness: he was so responsive no matter what came up. He even taught me how to use the grill and showed my son his fabulous 1963 car (just ask!). 3.) The surroundings: so peaceful and lovely. Old spearheads found on property by owners may even be from Paleo-Indians native to TN. It is truly quiet and private. 4.) The rooster and chickens! Don't hesitate to book. It's an exceptional value for the price. It is a little remote, though, so it's best for those like me who really want to get away.

“Beautiful inside and out with lovely decor and awesome views”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Remote, yet not too far from town (Carthage) should you need supplies (Walmart). Lovely country drive around the lake to the towns of Gainesboro (honestly wasn't real impressed but may be better in summer when more things are happening) and Granville. Be sure to check out Sutton General Store. They serve lunch and also have special shows and music throughout the year. The Homestead and the antique car museum was closed for winter but a nice little gift shop in the old bank was open and the lady working there was very knowledgeable. As for the accommodations, they are decorated with beautiful antiques yet it is still very homey and comfortable. Awesome kitchen with many of the staples (coffee, spices, sugar, flour...), fresh eggs and juice in the fridge. The hot tub was a great way to relax and ease weary bones after travelling most of the day to get there. The bed was sooo comfy (warning, you will need to use the little stool to get in it if you are short) even my husband slept in and he's usually up at the crack of dawn! It was lovely to wake to the rooster crowing( don't worry it wasn't too early and not overly loud). You do have to be able to climb stairs to get to the living space.However, there is a full bathroom downstairs making it handy when you are outside on the porch grilling or using the hot tub. The owners are on property in case you should need them but not intrusive. The deer came out along the drive to say goodbye (LOL) as we drove away.... I recommend staying here whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway just the two of you, a girls weekend or family fun on the lake.

“Beautiful Cabin on the Hill!”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in November 2015

I was in nearby Carthage on business for a couple of weeks in the fall and was lucky to find Carla and Howard's beautiful place on the hill. I had an extremely relaxing and pleasant stay. The cabin was clean and well appointed, the bed super-comfortable, and the views stellar, but what really made the stay memorable was Carla and Howard! More accomodating and gracious hosts I can't imagine. I truly look forward to my next stay!

“i've Been There 3 Times”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

i have stayed in over 30 different private homes in my travels for business and pleasure. This is one of my favorite places. I like it, because it sits on top of a mountain and the closest neighbor is a mile away. You can watch the fog rise off the river below the property. The property borders the river. The bird life is plentiful. When you sit on the porch over looking the river, all you hear are the sounds of nature. On most trips back to civilization, you will see local wildlife, deer, rabbits, turkeys. The place is tastefully decorated, it's as close to home as I get when I am traveling. What makes the place special is the hospitality of the owners. They treat you like family. When I a back in the area, this is the only place I will stay at. If your looking to get away from the average home rental experience, this is the place
