Overview

About the property

1 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 2

'Lazy Days' is the third cabin we built on 60 private acres of property here in the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond. It was a priority for us to maintain seclusion for each cabin while finding a beautiful spot for building. We decided on a hemlock ringed area with just a short walk out to a private gazebo set out on the same 2 1/2 acre pond as Whippoorwill Hideaway shares. We believe you will fall in love with this beautiful, peaceful oasis where you can sit on the porch and do absolutely nothing without any guilt. If you enjoy fishing then you'll appreciate the dock by the gazebo where you can fish for bass or bluegill.

The cabin is only built for 2 and is one open room except for a central fireplace and the private bathroom. It includes a king-size bed with a two-person Jacuzzi beside it. The living room is cozy and you can bring videos to watch on a DVD or VHS player for the quiet evenings. The full back porch is supplied with rockers and a view that is beautiful.

Just a short walk over a little bridge leads to a gazebo out on the water where you can fish or sit in the porch swing.

As soon as you turn in the winding country road tightly hemmed by evergreens you will begin to feel the difference in atmosphere. You've come apart from the rest of the world and this time is just for you - just the two of you.

We live in and the cabin rental is surrounded by the small Mennonite community of Muddy Pond. There are unique shops here and some good eating at the General Store, Country Porch and Bachen Haus. Horse lovers will enjoy the Leather Shops and nature lovers will appreciate the serenity and natural beauty that is all around. In the fall watch the old time sorghum mills operate. If you've made this your vacation destination than you may want to go farther afield to the Big South Fork which offers: Horseback Riding, Fishing, White Water Rafting and Hiking; or to Fall Creek Falls, Picket and Cumberland State parks which have: Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating; Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place or historic Rugby . The Cumberland is alive with history and beauty. It's a place to relax and reflect and become acquainted with the real Tennessee. Step back to a simpler time and create a precious memory.

Activities at the Cabin: Sitting on the porch rockers watching the birds, Relaxing on the hammock enjoying the beautiful view, walking down quiet lanes, Reading good books, Fishing, In the community: Sightseeing while leisurely driving the back roads, watching old time sorghum cooking in the fall, Browsing crafts and bulk foods at the general store, Checking out neat things and gifts at the Leather shop, Variety Store or Country Porch.

A Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin and setting. It has everything you need and more. We loved the quiet and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the porch rocking. I can't recommend it enough and we look forward to going again!

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many cabins , but this one was the best cabin. The people in the area were so nice and friendly. I caught a big small mouth bass and enjoyed the atmosphere. The only bad thing that I have to say about the trip is that we couldn't stay longer because they were booked. Next time we are going to book early and stay at least three days. Very peaceful.

Wonderful Relaxing Time

  • 5 of 5

We also had the pleasure to partake of sparkling apple cider and Hershey kisses left for us by the owners. Unfortunately we were not able to meet them. The weather was rainy and cold, which is unusual for this time of year in middle Tennessee. But we were on our getaway at this beautiful, secluded property, and we could care less! We spent the morning fishing and caught a number of fish - bream and bass. It had been a long time since my wife and I enjoyed a fishing excursion. The cabin is lovely and had everything we needed. The gazebo on the dock is a nice staging area to rig your fishing equipment. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. Saw plenty of birds, including robins, crows, blue jays, cardinals, and gold finches. Got acquainted with a couple of donkeys that wandered up to the fence.

We plan to come back to stay in one of the other cabins and repeat this great experience! Thanks to Martin and Rosanna for providing such great facilities!

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted, upon entering the kitchen, with a bottle of sparkling apple cider and several Hershey kisses in each glass :-) What a welcome! We didn't get to meet the owners, but can tell they take care of their property. It was absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the peace and quiet and loved seeing so many stars at night! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all! No cell service or internet, but we didn't care. There were some DVD's there and we ended up watching the "Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage" video series. We thoroughly enjoyed that and felt as if we were on a Couple's Retreat. I planned this trip as a surprise for my husband for our 15th anniversary. He LOVED it! Thank you for providing such a nice get a way!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being wonderful guests! One of our wishes for the cabins, is that they could be useful in strengthening marriages. In the busy lives we live, it's so important to spend quiet time together. I hope you can come back soon! Rosanna

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this cabin in late March of '16. It is a beautiful, secluded location. Definitely buy what you need before getting there: it's a bit out of the way. And don't count on having cell service; ours was intermittent at best. As such, we had a wonderful, quiet vacation, and will be back! The view is wonderful from the gazebo, and the cabin has pretty much everything you need for a getaway. Highly recommend! Dealing with the Horst's was straight forward and couldn't have been easier. It's a lovely, affordable way to have a nice vacation.
