The cabin features 2 full kitchens and living rooms, one on the main level AND one in the basement. There are 2 TVs and DVD players in the living rooms (no TVs in the bedrooms). The king master suite is located on the main level along with the washer and dryer and additional half bath. You will find 2 king bedrooms, a full bath, and including a sitting area upstairs.

The cabin is decorated with a true classic rustic and western style! Located on a 2800 acres Preserve, providing peaceful settings and a private atmosphere. Renting the cabin gives you access to multiple fishing lakes that back up to Johnson Lake. There are miles of hiking possibilities and creeks.

Best vacation we had ever had

  • 5 of 5

It’s been a few months since we stayed in this beautiful cabin, But we still talk about it all the time. My kids beg to go back.

The memories we made here will stay with us forever.

Cabin was amazing. Plenty spacious for our family of 6 and the guests we had come and go. Well stocked and very clean. The kids, of course, loved the horses and the water close by to fish in.

Everyone slept well, the beds are very comfy.

We met the owner upon checking in and she was such a kind lady. Helpful, with recommendations of things to do on our trip.

We will def stay here again!!

Perfect spot for a mini family reunion - can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I spent the weekend here with my husband's sisters and their families. It was the perfect place to unwind and spend quality family time together. The layout of the house allowed for all of the kids (cousins who don't get to see each other very often) to have their own space in the basement, while the grown ups could relax upstairs. The weather was nice, so the kids had a great time playing in the yard, and the runners in the family enjoyed running through the nearby countryside. The kitchen was well-equipped (and an extra kitchen downstairs was a real bonus!), the porch offered great views, and we had everything we needed. This is our annual Christmas present to each other - the gift of time together. This cabin was a great place to make memories and the kids are already planning their adventure for next year. While there wasn't wi-fi (which we knew in advance), we all still had decent cell service. And to be honest, it was a relief to not have wi-fi, we could really unplug and enjoy our time together. Thanks for an absolutely lovely stay. It really was the recharging weekend that we all needed!

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean and well stocked. The grounds were peaceful and we enjoyed walking to the nearby lake. The kids loved seeing the horses. We spent every evening on the deck and the fans kept the mosquitoes away. Easy drive to Chattanooga. We loved it so much we extended our stay by another night.
