Great Cabins

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin online for a vacation for my wife and I and my in-laws. We were very pleasantly surprised! The cabin was much better than expected. Well laid out and very well stocked with everything that you might need and more. The cabin was spotlessly clean and was supplied with breakfast items for every morning of our stay. We really appreciated the washer and dryer because we had already been away from home for 7 days. The cabin was very relaxing and "homey". We also loved watching the deer and mostly the humming birds which was an endless source of entertainment. I would highly recommend these cabins!!!

Morning Star Cabin...The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Murfreesboro not really knowing what to expect. We stopped at Em's Cafe for lunch before going to our cabin. Boy were we in for a treat! Excellent food, service and the friendliest people ever!

We, myself and two nieces and two nephews continued on to our cabin , The Morning Star. We were met by our very friendly and energetic landlord, Mike Guthrie. We walked into a gorgeous and immaculate two bedroom cabin with two baths a huge fully stocked kitchen, dining room and living room with two pull out sofas. The cabin was also stocked with outdoor and indoor games, DVDs, and a tv in every room and washer and dryer.

Morning Star was in an ideal location: 3 miles from Lake Swaha, 5 minutes from grocery store, gas, souvenir shops and maybe ten minutes from the diamond crater which was our primary destination this vacation.

I would definitely make this a return stay. Great place.

Nice Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at one of the cabins for 3 days. The cabin was nice, clean and comfortable. However, I thought it was a bit odd that we did not receive the "southern hospitality" in person as we did when I made the reservations on the phone. Would have been nice if we were asked if we would like to use the pool verses putting in chemicals and being told that we couldn't because it was being treated. Also, I'd like to comment on the no pet rule. The owners and their family can have their pets inside the cabins, but no one else can. Same goes with smoking. Other than that, the place was nice and peaceful.

Owner's Response: What Can I say??? These renters visited during a time that my daughter visited us. My Daughter and family stayed in another cabin. I apologize that these renters feel offended that we as owners are allowed some perks they are not such as pets. We have had to adopt a no pet policy because of abuse, we just asked people to leave that arrived with full sized lab with out our approval that they allowed in kiddie pool then in cabin!!!! As far as pool we do not advertise pool as part of package and we added a shock treatment to the pool late one afternoon and for their safety warned them of treatment. I thank these people for staying with us, and apologize if we offended. Smoking is allowed outside of cabins. We furnished them with double rations on breakfast the men told us of their visit "It was just what the Doctor ordered" and we did not complain that they checked out late on a day that the cabin had to be prepared for arriving renters and that they left cooking utensils caked with burnt grease and eggs. In this business we have to learn that some people will find fault regardless. These found fault with other cabins not the one we rented them. We wish they had felt more welcome it is sometimes difficult to determine if renters want to converse with us or be allowed their space. We will keep trying to please and learn from this experience.

This place is great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister and I stayed here for three nights, and it could not have been better. Everything was clean and the cabin was comfortable. The cabin is bigger than it looks in the photos; it has two large bedrooms and each has its own bath. There is a laundry room, a back porch and a large great room with a den area, a dining table and a fully equipped kitchen.

The highlight was the owner, Mike. (I didn’t get to meet his wife). Mike was friendly and funny. He made us feel at home with his southern hospitality. He didn’t bother us, but he made sure everything was okay. I enjoyed getting to know him.

I highly recommend this place.

VERY Nice Service, Very Clean, Lots of room, Close to the Crater of Diamonds

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was like new and was very spacious. Everything was very high quality. The owners were the best and treated us as guest. I've never experienced such great service from any other place. My sister who was diagnosed with terminal cancer chose the cabin and every one of us enjoyed it. She likes the Crater of Diamonds which only took 3-5 short minutes to get to. The scenery was beautiful. The cabin is packed with almost everything you need. We didn't want to leave! I'm so thankful we chose this as the place to stay with our family. We have many beautiful pictures and wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you Loretta. We can only be grateful that we were a part of this family get together. It touched us that Loretta wanted to do something special for her sister. I want mention details but Loretta and her husband has faced some serious challenges in their own family yet they still made sacrifices for others. Loretta's husband being a veteran reminded me of my daughter and her struggles with raising a family with Daddy gone to represent our country in the noblest of causes. Our hats are off to you Loretta and family and thank you for sharing a part of your lives with us. I need to mention that Loretta has a cute little girl that reminded me of my own grand daughters and a son .Her husband a strong young man of virtues any father would be proud of. You will be in our prayers and remember you have friends in Murfreesboro that were blessed by your visit. Thank you. Mike and Carolyn

Go and have a wonderful relaxing stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this peaceful place. The owners are over the top great and very hospitable and thoughtful. We were rock hounding the south with our 17 year old homeschool graduate as a gift to him. The place was great for hanging out by the firepit, great kitchen for easy meal prep and nice area to explore. We did visit the diamond mine but did not strike it rich there, but the blessing of the Morning Star cabin made us feel truly rich indeed.
