Muddy Pond Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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. Farther away: Big South Fork which offers, White Water Rafting and Hiking, Fall Creek Falls, Picket and Cumberland State parks have, Scenic Trails, Swimming and Boating, Local Wineries, Historic Sights of the Cordell Hull birthplace, Alvin York home place and historic Rugby are nearby. Crossville is famous for the golf courses and the Cumberland County Playhouse. The main activity here is relaxing and listening to the sounds of silence.

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.

Fantastic Cabin for Two

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin, clean and well stocked. My husband and I enjoyed the tranquil setting and loved fishing in the pond. The only thing we could find wrong was there is no dining table on the porch with the grill. The description given for the cabin says it shares the pond with another cabin, but this is no longer correct. The owners have dug another pond just for this cabin, but you still have access to the other pond as well. The cabin pond is stocked with blue gill and catfish. We caught several nice catfish, but released them back into the pond, as two were quite pregnant. We loved just sitting, watching the stars, and listening to nature's nightly chorus. If you need a place to relax and forget your cares this is the place. We have already booked our next visit in August for our 43rd anniversary. We can hardly wait to return. Thanks Rosanna and Martin for sharing your little piece of heaven.

Tranquil and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I took my elderly mom on a trip to visit family and found this wonderful cabin. The booking process was hassle free. It was a pleasure to meet Roseanna. What a peaceful environment! Waking up with a view of cattle in the pasture just steps away from our cabin. Plenty of quiet time and beautiful walks through the hemlock forest. I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone wanting to get away from it all. Book early for the autumn - very popular!

What a delightful cabin. It was all that was discribed on the vrbo information. We enjoyed the peace and quiet,yet not far from both Monterey and Crossville. We really liked the cows that came to visit every morning and the fireflies at night!! We rented this cabin to be close to highway 127 and the yearly Worlds Longest Yard Sale. We made many trips back and forth to 127 and got great yard sale items even some we really didn't need. It was always great to come back "home" to our cabin in the woods and enjoy looking at our treasurers...The cabin was very clean and it had everything we needed. It was nice to have the washer and dryer to wash up everything before we headed home. thanks for a delightful time in the woods. We hope to come back another year.

Perfect Hide Away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is pristine as is the hospitality. I have lupus and therefore cannot be exposed to sunshine, so the covered gazebo/dock appealed to me. It was truly heaven to be on the water again for the first time in so many years and not have to worry about the sunshine. My husband and I had so much fun feeding the fish. We aren't much for actually fishing but we adore watching them and the tadpoles/frogs and other pond life! You will love this property!
