I am a transplanted Australian, by way of California, and chose the Tennessee mountains as a perfect place to semi-retire and enjoy the beauty of middle Tennessee.
The house reflects a combination of my Australian heritage and a little of the south and the name 'Moongalbah' is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning 'a sitting and resting place' and I invite you and your guests to use the front porch rockers and do just that... enjoy, relax and breathe the fresh mountain air.
Susan Herrick purchased this house in 2005
'Moongalbah' in Clifftops is a perfect retreat for guests attending events at the University of the South, whether it be key university weekends, weddings, reunions etc. This gated community allows privacy, and a perfect base to explore the Cumberland Plateau, hiking trails and so much more.
A safe and secure home in a gated community.
Five high school friends and I rented this GREAT house for a reunion weekend. The house was lovely, quiet, and had everything we needed. The owner, Sue Herrick, was very helpful and accommodating.
We stayed at Moongalbah for Thanksgiving week and it was wonderful. It is a charming house and the setting is superb. The kitchen and breakfast room have a beautiful view of the woods where deer browsed each morning. the house had lots of space: two living rooms and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had everything we could possibly have needed and more to serve Thanksgiving dinner for 18.
We stayed at Moongalbah for a reunion weekend and it was absolutely perfect!! The house is wonderful and perfect for relaxing and spending time together with friends. All of the bedrooms are nicely sized and are great for couples and kids alike. And Sue could not have been nicer and more accommodating --- she went to great lengths to make sure that we were happy and made to feel very welcome. We had a lovely little welcome basket waiting for us when we arrived at the charming home and felt like we were staying with family. Clifftops is also such a great setting (some great paths and amenities within as well as easy access to a number of trails, etc) and very easy to get in and out. We would absolutely rent this house again and will recommend it to all of our Sewanee friends.
5 couples for a birthday and wedding weekend. Could not have selected a better house. Very comfortable. Cooked in and celebrated a birthday. Dining room comfortably accommodated 10. One of our friends is in a wheelchair. The owners installed a custom built ramp through the garage which was perfect. We were able to be inside and out on the deck with great ease and comfort. Wished we had brought a puppy. Back yard is gorgeous and fenced in. Deer came through in the morning. Very peaceful and we didn't feel our birthday party disturbed the neighbors. Everything you could possibly need or want. Close to sewanee with a lovely drive 10 minute drive. Sue is a great owner and was available to us. The large bedroom upstairs over the garage would be perfect for teenagers as there is a big tv and lots of room. This room is also very quiet. The downstairs master was ideal for the chair which our friend needed to shower. No ledge for roll in shower. Double sinks made getting ready easy. Heated towel rack was a luxury. Kitchen can accommodate 10 more people for dining. Kitchen was easy to navigate and cook for a group in. Thank you Sue and Andy.
We had a wonderful girls' weekend in this lovely and comfortable home. Sue checked in with us shortly after we arrived to be sure we had everything we needed. Enjoyed the beautiful wooded surroundings, the community pool and just relaxing on the deck with a retractable awning.
Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay while in Sewanee! We rented it for our daughter's wedding and it was perfect. Our family was very comfortable and the house is clean and well stocked. The décor made us feel right at home. Very comfy and cozy in a beautiful private setting!
