Sewanee House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + 2 Twin Beds in Office, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-10)

Only minutes from The University of the South, St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, St. Mary's Retreat Center and Monteagle, Aerie is the perfect retreat on Sewanee Mountain.

The Property

The recently-refurbished 3,000-square-foot wood house blends in with the trees on a 13-acre site. Set on the edge of a bluff with a spectacular view of mountains and trees and with two decks for viewing them, Aerie offers respite from everyday life.

No matter what the season, weather or time of day, the view is always incredible.

When you wind down the long driveway through the woods, you know you’ve come to a special place. Relax in the sunroom and watch the chickadees, titmice and nut-hatches on the feeder a foot outside the window. Explore the shelves of books in the library/office. Play games or do puzzles on the balcony overlooking the living room. Watch movies from the selection in the great room upstairs. Or do them all!

House Description Continued: The poplar-paneled master bedroom has a California king bed (slighter narrower and longer than a regular king) and a master bathroom with a step-in shower. The library/office has a day bed and a trundle bed. The house can sleep up to 10. There is a half bath downstairs. The dining table seats eight, and there is a card table and four TV tables; there is a table on the balcony upstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped. The living room, laundry room and sunroom are also downstairs.

Upstairs is the blue bedroom (queen bed), the yellow bedroom (queen bed), the balcony, a great room and a bathroom. Upstairs or down, all of the rooms have views—of the far-off mountains or the nearby trees—and there are hand-made crafts and original paintings throughout the house.

The Surrounding Community: There is much to do on the mountain. During the school year, The University of the South offers theater and music performances, as well as art exhibits. Craft fairs are held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, in May and on the Fourth of July. The Sewanee Summer Music Center is held four weeks in the summer and hosts numerous performances. Shakerag Craft Workshops are held in June at St. Andrews-Sewanee School.

For hikers, there is the 18-mile Perimeter Trail on the University of the South domain, as well as South Cumberland State Park (which includes Fiery Gizzard, Savage Gulf, the Stone Doors, and the Sewanee Natural Bridge, a mile from Aerie) with its many hiking opportunities, and other natural areas. Woods Reservoir and Tim’s Ford are nearby for boaters. Golfers will enjoy the Sewanee Golf course. There are a number of dining choices in Sewanee, Cowan, Winchester and Monteagle. For the attractions of the big city, Chattanooga is 45 minutes away, Nashville is 1.5 hours, Birmingham is 2.5 hours, and Atlanta is 3 hours.

You must be at least 25 to rent Sewanee Aerie, and you must be on-site.

There is a high bluff in front of the house, and there is no fence, so the house may not be appropriate for small children. In fact, everyone needs to be cautious near the cliff!

LABOR DAY WEEKEND WITH RAIN

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 5, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Beautiful view!
We sat around the window watching the clouds coming and going with the rain and would run outside for a walk, tour or hike when there were breaks in the weather. The Natural Bridge, the blue trail hike from The Cross, All Saints Chapel at Sewanee, Templeton Library, St. Mary's Retreat and convent, Mountain Outfitters, Shenanigans, Crust, High Point, Monteagle Assembly and Lemon Fair have been checked off our list.
It was a great place to gather. It was cozy and like being in an art gallery. We were Chattanooga, Memphis and Brooklyn on the mountain top! We will go back. I did not recommend children or teenagers because we had no experience with that. There are movies and games and books galore though.

Owner's Response: It sounds as if you had a busy and fun weekend. Thank you for renting Aerie!

Beuatiful, private mountain retreat in a welcoming, comfy house

I cannot say enough good things about our experience staying at Aerie Sewanee and dealing with the owner, Cindy.

First of all, Cindy was incredibly professional, responsive and easy to deal with in all matters of the rental. Having rented several vacation houses directly from owners before, this is not always the case and I think it is an important part of the overall experience. Cindy definitely gets an A+ in this department!

Secondly, the house and the setting are just beautiful, more so than I expected. The house is nestled in a private woods and the views of the surrounding mountains (which you can enjoy from a nice-sized deck or one of the balconies of the second floor bedrooms) are unobstructed. The house itself is very nicely decorated and comfy, with multiple comfortable sitting areas to read or just take in the view. The kitchen is huge and well-stocked with equipment (a "must" for me and my family of cooks).

I staid at Aerie Sewanee with my family (husband, father, sister and one of her children). Everyone felt instantly at home as soon as we walked in the door, and I am sure you will too. You won't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! The kitchen at Aerie isn't the fanciest--it doesn't have granite countertops or a gas stove--but we've tried to be sure it's stocked with the pots, pans, utensils and other culinary items you need to cook the meals you want on your vacation. I'm glad it all worked for you and that you enjoyed your stay!

I will stay at Aerie every time I return to the mountain.
It is absolutely gorgeous, best house I have ever rented, and I really can't think of a better location on the mountain.
Plus, all the cooking tools available in the house made it really nice for us since we like to cook.
That was definitely an added bonus to the post card view!
