100% refund for cancellations at least 30 days before check-in. As our reviews reflect, we work hard to make the cottage clean, inviting and a place to make lifetime memories. Whether you are traveling with several family members, a group of friends, or only a couple - we know that you will find relaxation on the big porch rocking chairs or around the fire pit. Special visits from the farm dogs and red hens that free-range the farm are a real treat. There is just something so amazingly peaceful about watching the hens and cattle going about their leisurely lives of grazing and resting. The property has plenty of room to toss a ball or frisbee; play flashlight tag, chase fireflies or catch snowflakes on your tongue. There is a cornhole board and bags set and board games for inside. We have decorated the cottage in an inviting, comfortable country theme. There are books and inside toys for the children to enjoy (if you can ever get them inside).
The kitchen offers everything needed for your stay. With two separate round tables and bar stools, you can all enjoy a sit-down meal in the house - or a picnic style meal in the pole barn which is lighted with strings of clear lights.
The master bedroom has a queen sleigh bed, large walk in closet and a full bath. The south bedroom has a queen sleigh bed and a twin bed with antique dresser. The north bedroom has a unique door-headboard, full bed and a twin bed with beautiful views of the hay barn. The south and north bedrooms share a full bath and walk in closet. The living room has TV with cable and DVD, game chest, seating for 10 and lots of floor space to play games. There is also a game table in the living room. The kitchen/dining room is very spacious with beautiful oak table/chairs and an island with bar stool seating. The kitchen is fully furnished with stove, oven, side-by-side refrigerator with ice/water dispenser, dishwasher, microwave, coffeepot, blender, dishes and cookware.

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.
Tammy Henderson purchased this Cottage in 2011
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 33 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.

Fun and relaxing
Driving up to the property, my children were so excited to see the cows and the barn. There was a great yard for them to run and play in as well as a barn area complete with concrete floor perfect for their scooters. Our only regret is not scheduling a longer stay!
Loved it!! Had everything we needed!! Very close to attractions.
Clean, great location, quiet, great owners!

Our cottage is located 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 in June, 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.
