About Dennis Sheffield

My name is Dennis Sheffield. (2nd from the left next to Earnest T. Bass). I have lived in Nashville since 1991 but am originally from Marianna Florida, a small town in the panhandle about 50 miles north of the Gulf Coast. (Florida State Seminole Country - 1981 Alum) I own a promotional products and T-Shirt business, am sell Traeger Wood Pellet Grills. I know how to sing a good song and can tell funny jokes. I'm single and in search of a wealthy 90 something (female) to marry with a really bad cough.

Dennis Sheffield purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Dennis Sheffield chose Oneida

After living on the North Florida Gulf Coast and observing what made vacation rentals succeed, I spent years looking for a new development in the Tennessee mountains. I wanted undiscovered country since Gatlinburg reminded me too much of Panama City Beach. Sharing space, restaurants and Highways with millions of tourists was not my idea of relaxing. While driving in North East Tennessee one weekend I happened onto the Big South Fork National River and Recreational Area after being lost. This was the beautiful secluded river with high bluffs, incredible natural settings (but no tourists) I had dreamed about. Bought the land, created a large pond between the ridges and built a fantastic log home. The legendary singer/song writer, Tom T. Hall, liked it so much he said I could name it after him if he and Dixie could stay and write songs from time to time. Great folks - very generous arrangement.

What makes this cabin unique

This is the most relaxing place you could ever imagine. I tell people there's nothing to do but ya don't have enough time to do it all. I usually never leave the cabin for days at a time after hiking, swimming, fishing, love cooking in that incredible well stocked kitchen, grilling and smoking on the Traeger Wood Pellet Grill, reading, and playing music. There is a great Yamaha upright piano that fills the home with harmonics. Sitting in the hot tub gazing at night skies that are like nothing I've ever seen in the south. You can pick out satellites and shooting stars streaming across the heavens. Rocking outside on the covered porches or out on the dock reading while enjoying the north western breezes enjoying the quite solitude makes for the perfect get a way from it all vacation I've ever experienced. It's a hard place to leave once you've unwound. I also wanted to provide a place that families would enjoy for gatherings and vacations. Kids really love the pond and hiking into the Big South Fork Park, horseback trail riding and the train to the old mining camp in Stearns KY are highlights for guests. And of course the Big South Fork River for rafting and white water canoeing is spectacular. There are beautiful hiking trails along the river to Angle Falls and other points that are considered the best trails in the country.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5
I have been looking for this cabin for years! It was everything I hoped for and more. We were so happy with our week and so were our dogs. We felt as if we were staying at someones home, we were never uncomfortable. I own my own business and wanted to escape the real world, I did just that. Dennis was very helpful and friendly.

Peaceful, relaxing... mixed with some adventure!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from an awesome week-long stay at this beautiful cabin. Dennis, the owner, makes sure you have everything one would need for a great stay. He even gave us advise on where to take our car when we thought we were having car trouble. Luckily, it was fixable with just a stop at O'Reilly's. We have stayed at several cabins in the past and this was BY FAR the most well-stocked and definitely the cleanest...and with the most down to earth, personable owner. You can tell that Dennis takes alot of pride in his cabin and he truly wants others to enjoy it. He also sent out the most complete list of things to do and even emailed us a heads up the week before we left to let us know what was going on in the area for the week we would be staying. That was so appreciated and it's little things like that will always make this cabin stand out. The first two days we were there, we just enjoyed lounging around the cabin, sitting on the deck by the pond...fishing and sunning. One day we had the most beautiful rain storm and we sat on the porch on the rocking chairs... listening to the rain and thunder. The porch is wide with a large overhang, so we stayed completely dry while the rain pounded down all around us. That will be a great memory. When we were ready to leave the cabin for the day, we chose to go horseback riding. Luckily, Dennis had Southeast Pack Trips as a suggested activity on his website. Larry, the owner, took us on the most amazing 1/2 day adventure through beautiful trails and forest and creeks in Big South Fork and on his surrounding land. It was the best horseback riding we ever experienced! He customized our trip to be exactly what we wanted to do. We told him we wanted more adventure and he definitely gave us that! The horses were beautiful and well trained. The next day we went on a "River and Rail" all day trip with Sheltowee Trace Outfitters. It was an 8 hr day trip that first took us on the Big South Fork Railway through the old coal mining towns and then canoeing down the river for about 2 hrs. It was very well organized and also included a nice packed lunch in a souvenir lunch bag. We had a wonderful and memorable time at Tom T Hall cabin. Thanks Dennis, for sharing your beautiful spot in the world! We hope to come back for a visit again.

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5
When I spoke with Dennis over a year before our stay, I asked if this place was "FOR REAL?" His answer was yes, and even better than the pictures. That is what we found when we rounded the corner and pulled up to the cabin. Peace, quiet, beauty, full relaxation all prevail when staying here...and quiet!!

We were here with our son, daughter (in-law) and grandchildren to celebrate Father's Day and my husband's 75th birthday which fell on the same day. The time with family was such a memorable time that it prompted my husband's emotions to declare this was the best celebration ever! Our 7 year old granddaughter, Bridget, stated with wide eyes that this was better than Disney! Our 11 year old grandson, Colin, was like a little bird who had just been released from a cage. He loved the rope swing, the canoe (even took old grandma for a lovely ride), fishing (he caught the first and almost only fish), and swimming as well as walks in the woods.

When they had to leave after a few days, my husband and I had to recover from a few melancholy moments, but soon busied ourselves with soaking up trailwalks, fishing, the hot tub, and our own canoe ride.

A word to the wise though is to heed Dennis' suggestion to spray, spray, spray! We suffered some hefty chigger bites. Thank you Dennis for our phone conversations, while there as well as before arriving. Don't forget to call or stop by next time you are in Cincy.

Most sincerely,
Chuck and Thelma Emery

A great place for a reunion

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was great; I wish the four of us had planned to stay longer. The listing was accurate & everything was clean & well cared for. The kitchen included every item we could possibly want for cooking & eating in.
The owner was super helpful. I asked if there were dishes that I could use to bake bread in, & he sent me pictures of the dishes that he thought I could use.
From the cabin it is only a short walk into Big South Fork where there are many available hiking trails. In addition to hiking there we spent an afternoon at Rugby, an interesting historical village.
The only issue was that the directions to the cabin were not as clear as they could have been. I scouted the place out before we all arrived & told the owner the issues I had found. I think he has revised the directions so it should be easier for other people. I would advise people to try to reach the cabin before dark as it would be hard to find the first time after sunset.
I would recommend this facility to anyone wanting a nice place to stay to enjoy nature.

Owner's Response: Marti was a ton of fun getting to know and a delightful renter. She not only helped me re-write directions to the cabin, but pretty much every page of instructions I send to help answer most every question a renter will have before arrival. I now refer to her as, 'Spock McNally'... and sincerely appreciate her insight and help.

Romantic Birthday Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5
"My husband and I stayed at Tom T. Hall for a romantic birthday get-a-way. We had stayed here before with the whole family so knew what to expect but it still exceeded our expectations. The setting is so tranquil that stress simply has no place here. The cabin has every amenity you could possibly want and is beyond very comfortable. The hot tub is a god-send after a day of hiking. We drove a short distance to several beautiful spots and also took some fabulous walks right outside the front door. Dennis is a fabulous host. He went out of his way to make sure we made the most of our visit with helpful ideas, graciously offering a late check out, and was available for any questions. We only wish we had time to stay longer but look forward to returning again very soon."
