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.

Great place for a relaxing few days with extended family. Plenty of room to stretch out.

  • 4 of 5

Great wrap around porch to enjoy the views and watch the rain and fog come over the hills. Good fishing in the local lakes. Need to replace burned out light bulbs, and floor mattresses were too hard for the kids. Couches and red chairs on top floor served better for kids' beds.

Beautiful property but some minor work needed

  • 4 of 5

Missing several light bulbs inside and out. Missing smoke alarm in bottom bedroom. Probably time to update some pots/ pans. Otherwise had a great time and is a beautiful home. I did notice that wood wasps are eating into your outside beams. Also need a lid for one of the outside trash cans so critters don't make a mess

What a great place to stay for everyone

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Half Moon Cabin. The house was spotless clean, and it was very roomy. We had all the amenities we needed for our large family. The porches were wonderful and the grounds were beautiful. We played outside as much as we did inside. The grandsons LOVED fishing on the lake down the way. My daughter in law had Verizon cell service and had a signal, those of us with Sprint or ATT, only had service in a few places; but that was fine. It was nice not have everyone on their devices all the time. Even though that storm came through and knocked out power til after lunch, we made it fine. We will likely have come back, the kids all talked about how wonderful it was, and I agree. Thank you for making that possible. We loved it!

Our only criticism is, the directions to the house need to be modified or updated. They were vague. I had to drive out to the diner, that isn't Depot Diner, and look at the house on Google maps to get there. Our kids plugged in the address in Waze, and drove right there. Also the grill was kind of in disrepair, and could really use an update. We used it, but the lid wasn't attached at all. Oh and we walked over to the stables, and they haven't rented horses in a long time he said. But everyone out there was super friendly.
