Perfect and quaint cabin

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cabin in a perfect location for someone wanting to stay right in the Knoxville area. Super clean. Cozy and relaxing. The woods are so nice, and songs and calls of all the birds are lovely while sitting on porch. Owners are wonderful to work with, and respond immediately to any questions, etc. Looking forward to coming again very soon!

Wonderful quiet retreat close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cabin it was clean well-equipped the beds were comfortable and easy to sleep in was nice having two full bathrooms. Had a wonderful time sitting in the hot tub on the porch and enjoyed the quiet of the woods and the pond. I enjoyed cooking in kitchen only wished for sharper knives. Still it was a lovely clean open space and exactly as advertised. Very clean! I would definitely choose to stay here again.

Beautiful cabin! If you need to get away from it all, this is the cabin for you. A quiet and peaceful setting. Bringing your own cookware to prepare your meals makes this the perfect get away.

This was total relaxation and I would recommend to to everyone.

Thank you Tina,

The Harrison Family

Great weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice. It was comfortable and nicely decorated. The furniture and the beds were comfortable. The hot tub was very nice as well. My only complaint is that the kitchen was a little sparse on coffee cups, glasses (which was basically all we used so I can't really say about everything else), and another kitchen towel would have been awesome. There appeared to be plenty of plates but I didn't check out cookware and such. Never turned on the TV. The internet worked great. Our GPS didn't work well finding the exact address and the sign is tiny (8 x 10) on ground level. REALLY hard to see in the dark! The cabin was so close to everything but yet felt like you were out in the country. We would definitely stay again!!

Great place to stay in Knoxville

  • 5 of 5

Cabin fit 5 of us with plenty of room. 3 adults and 2 kids. Very clean and out of the city BUT very close to campus and an EASY drive to get there. Owners are GREAT. I emailed the owners that the coffee pit was not working and within an hour a new one was here. You can't ask for any better. Hot tub worked well and was very clean. If you are coming to Knoxville I highly recommend you stay in the Green Roof cabin.

Great for a Weekend Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the cabin with another couple for a long weekend. The cabin has a nice location - it is in the country but close to downtown Knoxville. It is also well-maintained, clean, and cozy. The kitchen is pretty small but worked well for us to prepare breakfast each morning. There are two bedrooms but there is not a lot of privacy because the walls are very thin. We stayed in the bedroom on the main floor and we could hear everything the couple above us was doing (we discovered they could here us as well). Each bedroom has a bathroom close so that allowed us to have some privacy. We also discovered there was a mouse visiting the kitchen at night. This wasn't unexpected since we were staying in a cabin. It's good to know so you make sure to keep the food off the counters. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in the cabin!

Owner's Response: We value and take great concern in all our cabin reviews. Like most cabins the floors are T&G and do not insulate against noise very well. But that is a swap off for the rustic look. The mouse must be. A new visitor. We have an extimator who services our cabins but again as most cabins in the woods its almost impossible to prevent an ocasional critter from visiting. We will for sure attend to this visiting mouse.
