Overview

Smithville Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Welcome to our quiet peaceful country home nestled in the Dry Creek valley in Middle Tennessee.

Private and cozy with all the comforts of your home away from home.

The gurgling “Dry Creek” has water year around to attract children (and adults!) of all ages.

55 acres of woods, rock bluffs, hills, and caves for exploring.

Our secluded country roads are also great for leisure walking, biking and 4-wheeling.

Enjoy our lush 3 acre (fenced) pasture to board your horse for the duration of your stay. There is plenty of room to park your trailer.

Center Hill Lake is 8 miles away for fishing, boating, and water sports.

Cumberland Caverns is a half hour scenic drive away.

Every 4th of July week end Smithville hosts the famous Fiddlers Jamboree and Crafts festival.

Nashville Music City USA , home of the Grand Ole Opry is just 55 miles away.

Step back in time and relax in a “rocking chair” or “hammock chair” on the veranda and reminisce what life may have been like as you read the history of “The Old Mill at Dry Creek” and observe the 16’ overshot waterwheel, the gears, and the grinding stone.

At the end of your fun-filled day, relax around the campfire on the creek bank and swap family stories, or in quiet contemplation observe the evening stars.

Wonderful retreat over Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property. Family of 7 adults and 3 children stayed over Thanksgiving. The house is very roomy and was suited for all of our needs. We enjoyed the outdoors as much as the indoors. We were not brave enough to explore the cave though! We have already made plans to come back again in 2015.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Halloween season is always the busiest for my company ( a family owned costume company), so afterwards we like to unwind somewhere quiet. This was the perfect place for us! There was space for everyone, and plenty to do in the house. It is so large that even with 14 people there, everyone had space to do whatever they wanted, play games, watch movies upstairs, or relax in the hot tub.

We explored the cave and it was a great adventure. Two of the people with us were cave conservators from TN, so they gave us a great guide through everything and we even helped them find and keep count of healthy bats and other things.

The kitchen is huge, which is good, because we ate almost the whole time. We all gained a couple pounds after the trip I am sure.

We are hoping to come back next year!

Great girls weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I visited for a bachelorette/getaway weekend. It was incredible! I wish we could have stayed longer to take part in everything the house had to offer. We loved walking around the property, swimming in the COLD swimming hole by the cave, and cooking in the beautiful, open kitchen. The outdoor spaces were exceptionally beautiful. We somehow missed the information about no wifi and most of us had little to no cell phone reception, but we enjoyed being present with each other. We will definitely visit again!

Great Location for Families of All Ages

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 15, ages 5-71, thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Old Mill at Dry Creek. My husband made it through the challenging cave tour, the oldest yet to complete it, at 71. We want to go back again! The house is rustic enough, yet updated enough to please most anybody. Plenty of room for everybody. Had a great Karaoke night with our karaoke set-up and your sound system and projector. The family loved the cave, swimming hole and creek. Burgess Falls State Park is close and a must see. Additional perk, Walmart is just 10 minutes away for whatever you need!

Beautiful setting, gorgeous clean house

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen of us, including 5 kids age 4 1/2 and under, all stayed at the Old Mill at Dry Creek for a long weekend. We were able to entertain family from the area and enjoy time to ourselves as well. The kitchen was huge and was stocked with everything we forgot to pack and then some. The kids loved having a movie night in front of the big projection screen after a long day of playing in and around the creek. The cave was fun to explore, and the property was amazing. I appreciated the ease of communication with the property manager leading up to and during our stay. Hopefully we'll be able to make the trip and stay here again next year.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this property/location very much! Our children played in the swimming hole, spent hours in the creek, explored the cave and had a much needed quality vacation. We will return!
