Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom/1 Bath-Beautiful Farm Setting (Sleeps 7)

The Pinhoti farmhouse is a little house that used to belong to a big farm a long time ago. It's about fifteen minutes from Dalton, Ga, and thirty-five minutes from Chattanooga, TN. The farmland still surrounds it, so you get to kick back on our broad, back deck with the refreshing breezes blowing over you, and look out over the beauty of the fields...blissful in the knowledge that you will never have to mow them, unlike the yard you left at home. Our neighbor who owns the fields kindly maintains them for our viewing pleasure (and possibly his own reasons). ;-) We have some great big, old trees on our lot, the kind with lots of character and a sense of history about them, and a whole lot of birds flapping around in spring and summer. The house has quirky charm that couldn't be tamed by recent renovations...everything that can be crooked in it, is...but that's all part of the cuteness. It has a front 'settin'' porch with rockers, in addition to the side and back decks. There are four bedrooms in it, two of which are snug little upstairs rooms that seem like kid hideouts. The area is low-traffic, quiet...though you may witness an action scene of the neighbor playing with his grandkids in the field now and then. We call it the Pinhoti farmhouse (when we aren't calling it the crooked little farmhouse) because it's only about eight miles from the biggest trailhead, Snake Creek Gap, of the Pinhoti trail (which is many, many miles long). This trailhead has a large gravel parking area, with plenty of room for horse trailers, should you happen to have one. You can hike, camp, bike and ride horses on this trail, and there's a big mountain bike race held there every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family would like to thank you for opening up your beautiful farmhouse to us. We truly enjoyed the comfort and relaxation we found here! Our only complaint is we needed more time to spend in this loving home. With that said we would love to return and hope you will have us once again. The pics of the home did not show the true beauty of the farmhouse so very glad we got to see in person.

Rent with caution

  • 1 of 5

the property was lovely, and sits on a quiet road, but the owner does not communicate well and is very likely to keep your security deposit. when my family left after a 6 week stay, we had not seen nor heard from the renter the entire time, until they cashed my security deposit without notification or explanation. when I contacted them to find out what was left amiss, they gave me a list of things that were already broken or falling apart when I had arrived. they also claimed that some items were missing, which was not at all the case. I feel they were vary unfair and just wanted extra funds to fix up the house. also the house does have ants and cockroaches (which didn't bother me, as I am use to living in the country). this place is set up for couples on a weekend getaway, not for families with children or longer stays.

Nice country home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Kids loved the 2nd floor and the blocks! A/c worked great as did the heaters at night. Used the kitchen to cook breakfast one morning and it was like we were at home. Everything you can imagine is already there. Mattresses could be updated, but were ok. Thanks!

Relaxing Quiet Beautiful Peaceful

We had the perfect country vacation at the farm house. The mountains were brilliant in fall colors. The weather was ideal for the season. The house has everything you need. Mr. Key is a great host.

Unique, private, cozy, beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This house is one-of-a-kind! An old farmhouse with creeks and oddities that lead to high character. The kitchen has everything imaginable but you might need. Wi-Fi and satellite TV mean even while you escape the rest of the world you don't have to be out of touch. We had a great time! Thanks
