About The Owner

My husband and I are

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

This house will remind you of your grandmother's house, and when you stay here, you will not have a care in the world. At 'The Flarity House,' there is always a gentle breeze and clean air. The huge trees in the yard cast a comfortable shadow on the front porch. This house has more native shrubs, trees, and flowers in the yard than any house on Lookout Mountain. There are numerous outdoor recreation opportunities in the area; including, the lake with fish in the back yard.

We enjoyed our stay, especially the peace and quiet. It is a little ways Mout of town and only one bathroom in the middle bedroom is a handicap, but for 2 couples it works fine. Fun place for local visits or enjoying the countryside.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family found this to be the perfect spot to get away from it all. I didn't know there were so many stars in the sky until we were away from all the city lights--it was beautiful to look up and see them all. The house is so cozy. The kitchen is large and enjoyable to cook in and have the ability to visit with others with the open floor plan. The dogs loved every minute walking around the lake and being outside. The wood stove became a conversation piece as everyone pitched in to stoke the fire up or let it die down some. DeSoto State Park was only a few minutes away and we had a great hike to walk off some of the Thanksgiving feast on the Boardwalk Trail--a moderate 2.5 loop trail. The waterfalls were beautiful. Crockford Pigeon Mountain is closest to the house but you will have to get a permit--even to hike. We didn't know that so we will make sure we do this before we go next time. This was the perfect place for our family that came to stay overnight or just for a few hours visit from Knoxville, Huntsville, Sand Mountain, and Chattanooga. It was convenient for everyone! The perfect get away! Thank you!

Cozy home on beautiful land

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this cozy house. I wish we could have stayed longer! The home is very clean and EXCELLENTLY maintained. The beds are comfortable. The decor is so well put together and has the personal touches of the owner - which made staying there feel like you were at a home away from home! The front porch has 4 comfortable rocking chairs and a swing. We spent a lot of time rocking on the porch looking at the cows across the street. The horses were so friendly and fun to pet. My daughter loved them!

The beautiful town of Mentone is 10 minutes away, so we rode into town for a nice walk around the craft stores. We ate at the Wildflower Cafe - really great food! I couldn't ask for a better, more relaxing place to stay! If you are looking for a place to relax, that has animals and an old-timey feel, and is close to a fun and eclectic town, then this is your place!

Great if you like dogs and only need two bedrooms

  • 2 of 5

We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the surroundings, however everything smelled like dogs. Also, another issue for us was that it's actually a two bedroom. The third bedroom didn't have a door and walking through it was the only way to the bathroom.

Owner's Response: We offer an authentic farmhouse experience surrounded by beautiful green pastures- a garden, berries, and fruit trees in the summer and wood burning stove in the winter. Our farmhouse is not great for larger parties. The humid summer month create odors that are unfamiliar if you live in a modern home. There is only one bathroom, which is centrally located along with the middle bedroom. Thanks so much!

lovely spot

  • 4 of 5

I loved staying in your home. The horses are some of the sweetest I've ever met. We didn't want to leave them! The whole property is old and lovely. The only suggestion I have is spraying for bugs and spiders. It is much needed for the inside and the front porch. Other than that I really LOVED it! Thanks again!

Homey Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only exageration is that the lake is more of a pond, but the house is lovely, big kitchen, comfortable beds, enjoyable porch.
