Wildwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

This great little “Shed” is an outdoor enthusiasts dream home. Take a tool shed, add electricity, plumb it, insulate it, and add a huge deck. Hang a flat screen TV in the bedroom loft with a DVD player and Internet access and WiFi with a HDMI cable to hook up to your computer.

Full kitchen, countertop dishwasher, washer and dryer and no you won’t have to use the outhouse. The Shed is complete with indoor plumbing, for your convenience during rainy, cold or extremely hot weather. Yes, we do have heat and air. The furnished deck has a huge charcoal grill a picnic table, comfortable lawn chairs with foot rests, and a Hot Tub.

Located 12 miles from Rock City and 17 miles to Downtown and just across the road from America’s # 1 hang gliding flight park where you can watch small aircraft (can be noisy during the day) and hang gliders (silently soaring) almost all day every day..

They have Saturday night cook outs and campfires every week during season around 7 pm in the Landing Zone. Everyone is welcome. Some weekends and mostly all holiday weekends they also have live music which can go on into the wee hours. (well, maybe it is not that quiet of a place on Saturday night!)

So what are you waiting for? The price is most affordable – Get that reservation in before all the good dates are gone! Don’t forget to bring your gear, if you like hang gliding, or some courage in case you decide to take up a new hobby!

Quiet, intimate and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This shed is absolutely adorable. The hot tube is perfectly located in a cut out so you can see the stars. It can get rather warm during the day in the loft even with the air running, however this was a easy fix as the futon couch folded out into a very comfortable bed and it is much cooler down there. Overall one of the best places I've ever booked. Hands down we will be back.....

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the shed. We too love that little cabin. It has been unseasonably hot (in the high 90s for a couple of weeks in July. So sorry it was too warm in the loft and glad you found a solution. We would welcome you folks back!

Enjoyed The Shed and Our Stay...but those loft steps.

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Shed. It is well located for the area and you can get to everything within 15-20 mins (fast by mountain road standards!) We toured See Rock City, Ruby Falls, the Incline Railroad, Cloudland Canyons, and went to Ethridge, TN, to Amish Country. We got to all these places quickly and with no problems. Plus the drive was beautiful.

The Shed itself is nicely put together; big living area, large loft bedroom and very comfortable for the size. However, there is one thing I would warn about…steep steps going to the loft bedroom. If you have bad knees, small children, or dogs, you’re going to have trouble with these steps regardless of the handrails. I ended up sleeping on the living room futon because my knees couldn’t handle the steps. Living in Florida, and having been on many boats, these steps are what I would consider “boat” steps. You need to come down them facing the steps while holding onto the handrails just like you would on a boat. I believe my husband said they are 2” x 8” boards with a steep pitch. You may also want to bring a doggie/kid gate with you to place at the bottom of the steps to keep your dog/kid from attempting the climb; not good. Oh, and the driveway is a little steep but that’s not uncommon for the area.

Owner's Response: There really are no words. Note: Stairs to the loft/bedroom are a bit steeper than normal stairs, use both handrails. Above is a "CUT AND PASTE" copy of a notice that we have in all of our online descriptions of "THE SHED"! This particular notice is also on all of the paperwork that is sent out to the guests of "THE SHED" prior to their stay. This notice about the steps is in the directions, address and the lock code pdf as well as in the rental policy and agreement (which the guests have to accept online in order to book the property). The steep steps should definitely not have been a surprise, and a three star review because of it is really not warranted. They are not as steep as boat steps and one can easily manage them going down forward rather than having to go down them backwards. I've gone down them forwards many times and not even spilled a drop of wine. THE SHED is loved by many but if you decided to stay at THE SHED it is close to everything, within 15-20 minutes, but please, Note: Stairs to the loft/bedroom are a bit steeper than normal stairs, use both handrails.

nice little place

  • 4 of 5

Nice lil place up on the hillside. Not quiet as secluded as the ad would have u believe but we never saw the folks from the trailer below and their dog is very friendly and played with ours which is great cuz they are usually very shy. The inside was nice though and everything worked well for our little group with it's easy access to almost anything in the area.We would definitely use these folks again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Jordan. I will take a look at our description and rework it if you felt it wasn't as secluded as you thought. I do know that during the winter with all the leaves off the trees you can really see a lot around you more so than in the summer under full foliage. Thanks for staying with us, glad you enjoyed it.
