About James M Campbell

As a 2004 retiree, I needed something to do to occupy my time. Since I was originally born in Tennessee and owned several acres on the Cumberland Plateau, it seemed only natural that I would eventually find myself back there. Renting vacation cabins came purely as a coincidence since I wound up with more cabins than I could use after buying out and 'ol Navy buddy.

I enjoy meeting and talking to all kinds of people and this seemed to be the perfect venue for that passion.

James M Campbell purchased this cabin in 2008

Why James M Campbell chose Fall Creek Falls

While traveling from Georgia to Kentucky we crossed the beautiful Cumberland Plateau many times. Each time we would comment on how great it would be to own property there someday and to thoroughly enjoy the area, especially Fall Creek Falls State Park.

What makes this cabin unique

The beauty and serenity of the area provides a great place to sit back and relax away from the hustle and bustle. The added joy of having the beauty of Fall Creek Falls so close by is just a bonus.

Sitting on your porch and watching the area wildlife come and go is a real treat.

Beautiful property, clean cabin with all the basics, serene, could use a few decor updates,

  • 4 of 5

We visited in February and had the place to ourselves. It was exactly what we needed! Accommodations were clean, comfortable, and adequate, if not a bit dated. Serene trails on site made for easy morning meditation walks. We stayed in Summer Shade and the 3 other cabins in proximity would be fun for extended family/friends to stay. Hope to make that happen soon. Owner and caretaker were friendly, prompt, and made themselves available for any needs/concerns. A great place to stay!

great cabin in Fall Creek Falls area

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Summer Shade cabin with another couple for a long weekend. This cabin was perfect for us, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was plenty of room for all of us. The cabin was spotless and had everything that we needed. We spent the days hiking in Fall Creek Falls and Rock Island State Parks. In the evenings, we grilled out using the supplied charcoal grill and ate our dinner in the comfy screened in porch. After dinner we relaxed around a cheery fire in the fire pit using the provided firewood. The owner was very responsive and helpful during the rental process. We had hoped to get a chance to meet him, since he told us that he grew up in the same town that we currently live in, but he was not able to be there the same weekend we were. However, the lady that watches over the property while the owner is away was also very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the Fall Creek State Park area. We will definitely be coming back.

Great long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Summer Shade was the perfect cabin for our long weekend getaway. The place was impeccably clean and nicely laid out. The attention to detail showed that the owners really care about your vacation experience. Nothing was outdated or broken. Everything you would need to prepare a nice meal was there, extremely clean and in good working order. The area was quite and serene. Although there are four cabins in close proximity, we had complete privacy while sitting on the screened porch. The outdoor grill and fire pit area were well maintained, along with the entire grounds surrounding the cabins. Jim, the owner, met us upon arrival and showed us around. He gave us lots of useful local information, as well as directions to the park attractions nearby. We enjoyed visiting with him and his dog “Bear” the retreat mascot. Our little dachshund was quite taken by Bear. It was puppy love at first sight! This was one of the most relaxing getaways we have had in some time. Our intention was to spend a lot of time in the park, but we opted for hanging out at our peaceful cabin instead. We'll definitely go back to Cumberland Plateau Retreat!

Comfortable, well furnished cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Summer Shade cabin for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This cabin comes complete with everything you could need for a comfortable get-away - just bring your food and make yourself at home! We enjoyed walking in the woods behind the cabins, playing cards on the screened porch, and making s'mores at the fire pit in the evenings. It is an easy drive to Fall Creek Falls state park, where we hiked, kayaked, swam, and enjoyed the rope course. This cabin was a wonderful home base for our adventures!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this cabin. It rained the first night we were there and we stayed on the large screened porch the entire evening and talked; it was wonderful. We also loved the long walks in the country and you didn't have to worry about the sound of cars because there weren't any. It had the amenities of a nice hotel, but also the feel of camping, which my husband and sons/grandsons loved. We are already talking about coming back in the fall. Really great experience. Would highly recommend it!
