About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Seedling was built in 2008 and is constructed of solid log. For year round comfort, it is fully furnished and equipped with central heat and air.

The floor plan is designed for couples seeking peace and solitude; however our comfortable sleeper allows the cabin to accommodate two more. The cabin is tucked away among the trees. Your nearest neighbors are the squirrels and birds that come to visit.

Plenty of windows will bring in the natural light of the day. As our guest, you will enjoy many amenities inside, such as a cozy fireplace, full kitchen, towels and linens, vaulted ceilings and cable tv.

For those who need to keep in touch, a phone and wireless internet are also provided. Enjoy the outdoors sitting around the rock fire pit while your steaks sizzle on the charcoal grill, rock away your worries on the wrap around porch or just simply relax in the Jacuzz.

The Seedling is all about peace and quiet, but fine dining is only 10 minutes away and 30 minutes from you are many interesting events at The University of the South.

About Frank Lutz

We love the mountains here in Coalmont and wanted to share their beauty with others. We take great pride in The Seedling and believe the peace and quiet is exactly what is needed in these hectic times.

Why Frank Lutz chose Tennessee

We vacationed in many cabins in North Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. We have tried to apply what we learned to The Seedling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mar. 6-8, 2009

Thank you so much for an incredibly relaxing weekend at the Seedling. Your

cabin is the perfect get-away and we both couldn't have used it more. The

perfect escape. Your cabin was so comfortable and exceeded expectations with

the movies and flat screen TV; hot tub was amazing! Everything was so clean.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a small cabin in the woods away from touristy areas and the business of life, and that's exactly what we found. The place was warm and ready for us when we arrived. We weren't able to do any hiking while we were there (VERY cold with some rain and snow), but we had plenty of books to read and just relax, which is what we wanted anyway. The owner was very accommodating and provided an extra oil heater for the really cold night expected.

We loved our stay; the only negative part was that it wasn't long enough!

A relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is set in a quiet forest, away from the main road. The owners were responsive and had the cabin warm and cozy when we arrived. The amenities were what we expected, and we will certainly be returning in the future.

Cozy forest cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is stellar. It's gorgeous, all wood, cozy, comfortable; it has everything you need. The hiking nearby is gorgeous, some of the best I've done, and not so intense that the uninitiated can't do it. I spent nine nights here, doing a quiet retreat and it exceeded my expectations in every way. I will be coming back. I brought my own food, which added to the experience. The area is not a shopping or restaurant haven, which is just my style.

Perfect little getaway in nature

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was the PERFECT getaway spot for a little girl's weekend away. The cabin itself was clean and quaint. Not too far from a market in case you forgot something you need and not far from outdoor adventures - hiking, etc. The hot tub was a fantastic touch. Everything was in working order and the owners are so kind and helpful if you need anything else. I will be coming back here in the future with my two children as there is a lot of outdoor space to place and a large deck to play on. And they would just LOVE this cute little house. It could not have been any better!!!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin. Very clean, well equipped and has easy to use space for a small footprint. Its is very homey and safe feeling. The hot tub is great after a long day of hiking "also the hot tub us HUGE" the bed is also comfortable. I did not do much cooking but I did look at all the supplies for the next time I stay and it seemed to have everything you need "note the oven is the smaller kind" not a big deal just keep that in mind for meal planing.

Also for this part of Tennessee it is convenient to many location. Easy to get to whisky distillery's, a brewery or two, and the great hiking in the area, Savage Gulf, Fiery Gizzard, Fall creeks Falls and more.

We are looking forward to staying in this cabin many more times.
