About Tammy Henderson
Our names are Steve and Tammy Henderson. We live and raise cattle, chickens (for eggs), apples and a garden on this 40 acre farm. Steve also works away from the farm, but we enjoy being here for most of our spare time. Since offering the rental cottage, we have been blessed to meet many wonderful people from states near and far. We enjoy answering questions about the farm animals. Please call Tammy if you have any questions. 423-240-6433.

Why Tammy Henderson chose Chattanooga
This farm was originally owned by Tammy's parents. We built our house here shortly after we married and have lived here for over 35 years. The location has been very convenient to schools and jobs, yet offers a peaceful retreat from the hectic city life.
What makes this Cottage unique
Guests to our cottage most always comment on the wonderful front porch, 8 ft x 50 ft with 10 rocking chairs. The fresh mountain air and peacefulness seems to melt the stress out of your body and put a smile on your face. Sunsets are beautiful from the porch or the pavilion out back. We have a barn-wood pavilion out back where families can spend evenings under twinkling lights and play corn-hole or other games or enjoy a picnic. One of my favorite places in the cottage is standing at the kitchen window looking out at the big red hay barn. There are often cattle, chickens and guineas in the pasture by the barn.

We loved this place!
Big Porch Cottage was just what we were looking for. Our family enjoyed being together. We had plenty of room. Out grandchildren enjoyed the animals. We plan to come back.
Wonderful Mountain Getaway!
The drive to the property was beautiful! The property owners were wonderful and even invited my 7-year old to feed a baby calf. It was a wonderful trip.
A great get away in the mountains
We have a great stay. The home and property is beautiful and quiet. You are close enough to visit Chattanooga and enjoy your time away. Tammy and Steve were so friendly and made the stay even better. Feeding Buddy the 5 week old calf was an awesome experience. This a great place to get away.
Charming farm home
The cottage is clean, warm and comfortable. Everything our family needed was provided. Communication with the owners was excellent, warm and friendly. The grandkids enjoyed having room to run around. We looked it!
Quiet and Unique
This house is well cared for and roomy. The owner provides thoughtful touches like fresh apples, microwave popcorn, and instant oatmeal packets for guests. The property is beautiful, on a mountain with wide-open lawn and view of a stream and the cows next door. Very quiet. We would not have known there were cows if we weren't told about them. There is also a barn to use in warm weather. Close to Chattanooga, but in the country. A perfect combination for us.
Our cottage is in a convenient location to all the activities of Chattanooga, but also on a rural mountain-top farm. To the west is the beautiful Sequatchie Valley in Marion County, TN with a small airport in Jasper, TN; Nickajack Lake in Jasper; the Children's Holocaust Museum in Whitwell, TN; the Dunlap Coke Oven Museum, in Dunlap, TN and many craft fairs and local events such as Ketner's Mill, the National Cornbread Festival, etc.
Chattanooga offers something for everyone of all ages: the Children's Discovery Museum, Tennessee Aquarium, Imax Theatre, Chickamauga National Battlefield, Ghost Tours, Coolidge Park, Chattanooga Zoo, Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park, Chattanooga Theatre, UTC Mocs sporting events, Chattanooga Lookouts baseball, the Riverbend Music Festival, RiverRocks events in October and the list goes on.
If your family enjoys retreating to a quiet, home-like setting after a full day of activities, our cottage can offer that family-centered atmosphere you want. There is approximately 2 acres of yard with room to play ball, bean-bag toss, swing, sit around the fire pit or relax in the rocking chairs on the 50 ft front porch. You could spend your entire vacation just being relaxed and doing family things and never leave the property.
Another wonderful opportunity awaits just outside the property. We are adjacent to a TN forest, Prentice Cooper Wildlife Management Area. There are 23,000 acres of forest with abundant wildlife (deer, turkey, squirrel, rabbits, birds) and miles and miles of roads and hiking trails leading to wonderful areas overlooking the Tennessee River Gorge or the beautiful Sequatchie Valley.
Your family will find much to do and will want to come again to have more time for other activities.
