As you approach this private setting in the woods, you feel a calm come over you. A large covered porch greets you, beckoning you to sit a spell, watch the birds, squirrels, wild turkey, peacocks and deer play in the woods. How long has it been since you've heard a whippoorwill fill the evening air? Stroll down to the lake and 'wet a line.' Boaters and fishermen love it. Back at the house, you'll find an open floor plan with a large kitchen, dining, living room area. Two bedrooms, with one queen size and one full size bed, and one bath. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils. The dining room table seats six. The sitting area has a wood burning stove to warm your toes by.
Convenient to I-40 and I-840.

The Fernwood was great! It was clean, cozy, and so comfortable! Everything we needed was there. The lake and common area were just down the driveway. This is a beautiful area and Steve is a great welcoming host!
We stayed at the Fernwood for a total of three nights and had a wonderful time. There were four of us and the cabin worked out wonderfully. Everything you could possibly think of is included with the cabin. The kitchen is very well supplied and the two bedrooms are very cozy. The beds are very comfortable. Everything is kept extremely clean. It is located at the end of the driveway and is very quiet and peaceful. The front porch is great for hanging out. It is a short walk down to the water and the views are beautiful. We met the owner Steve and he was so polite and warm. true southern hospitality! We will definitely return. Thanks for a great stay!
We rented all 4 cabins available and were completely impressed. All of the cabins were extremely clean, very well appointed and adaptable to a variety of situations. We enjoyed playing in the sand, fishing off the dock, sitting at the fire ring socializing (and cooking s'mores of course) and racing paddle boats. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were a pleasure to deal with. You will not regret a visit to this property.
Place is Wonderful! This cabin is in a cozy setting. It is so quite, Clean, well equiped, and Steve and Deb are wonderful.
Lake is great. The dock is very nice.
We had three cabins Moonlit,Fernwood and Heron's. They were all wonderful.
Great place for a family reunion or just a nice quite get away.
My family and I stayed at three of Steve and Debbie's four cabins and the Fernwood, where my immediate family stayed was wonderful. It was clean and comfortable and Steve and Debbie were available and great hosts and very helpful. It says it sleeps four, but we have three small children and it fit the five of us just perfectly. All of your basic ammenities were provided and it was great to have a washer and dryer right there in the cabin.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the beautiful lake, fishing, bonfires and grilling out. We also enjoyed the local beach, which is just a few minutes away. Other great attractions (which were quite a bit further away) that we enjoyed were going into Nashville, horseback riding, visiting a winery, visiting the Jack Daniels Distillery, and renting a pontoon boat on J. Percy Priest Lake.
There was something for everyone and we would highly recommend this cabin.
We stayed at Fernwood Cabin during our grandson's 14U CABA World Series tournament in Lebanon, TN. It was the perfect "home away from home"! The cabin was clean and well stocked. There were plenty of linens, dishware etc. as well as spices and such in the kitchen. The living room furniture was comfortable as were the beds. Steve and Debbie even thought of the laundry detergent and softner for the washer and dryer (which came in really handy for the baseball uniforms). I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation while still feeling right at home. Our son and his family rented the cabin across the lane from us so I had the added bonus of grandkids to cuddle and enjoy. We all enjoyed the beautiful views of the lake, paddle boating and fishing when we would return at the end of the day after watching baseball. My husband preferred the air conditioned indoors while I loved sitting on the front porch in the swing. I highly reccommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay in this area.
