The Owner purchased this house in 2007

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.

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.

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.

Relaxing, renewing and quiet

  • 5 of 5
This little farmhouse is beautiful and the perfect spot to relax and get away from it all. Just sitting on the front porch in the morning and evenings was wonderful! Horses in the backyard, cows across the street, no traffic, no noise. When we entered the property I felt just like Grandma was going to pop out of the kitchen with a plate of cookies! I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away from it all for a few days of comfort and refreshment.

BIRTHDAY ADVENTURE

  • 5 of 5
VRBO is my favorite place to find great people/places! Flarity House followed in the same tradition. My niece & I treat ourselves to a birthday trip as our birthdays are a week apart. We love to stay in the country and mix among the locals. Upon our arrival, Jeremy came soon to help us with our 1st fire in the wood stove. We so enjoyed meeting you Jeremy, and hope to meet Ferne on our next trip! Slim and Dollar were very photogenic and enjoyed greeting us as well. :) The views are fantastic and we really enjoyed taking photographs. Flarity House was well represented in it's description on VRBO and has so much charm that we could have stayed a month! We would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy being in the beautiful, peaceful countryside. Enjoyed surrounding areas...Mountain Cove Farms (Beautiful!)(Manor House Restaurant-Delicious!). Cloudland Canyon State Park, Paradise Gardens (Summerville, Ga) Little River Canyon(Fort Payne, AL and Bama Q BBQ (Hammondville, AL) Pigeon Mountain Country Store (great BBQ-Chickamauga, GA) We tip our cowboy hats to Flarity House/Ferne's Cottage!!! Thank you so much Ferne & Jeremy!!!

We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was such a great experience! Very private and peaceful. House had that old school country feel that you can only find in the real country. Loved the wood burning heater also and firewood was awaiting us already stacked neatly by the door! The pond is very easy access and plenty of grass along the bank (not a mud hole). Enjoyed seeing my boys catch some fish! We really enjoyed the old kitchen too. Ms. Ferne runs a good place here and her price is honest and fair. Cant wait to go back!
