About Shawn Wilmoth
We are a family that loves family time and travel! We have traveled to Europe as a family many times and love making our East Tennessee farm our home. We take special care of our overnight locations to make sure they are better than your average stay. This includes cleaniense and details. We love spending time at home on the farm as well. Watching the sun go down on the dock or grilling out at the pavillion or just making smores on one of our outdoor firepits! We hope we make your stay better than you expected and are here if you need us or a phone call/text away. Thanks for your stay with us. We hope you become a regular.
Shawn Wilmoth purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Shawn Wilmoth chose Jefferson City
You choose this property for one reason. Family time. Our farm has lots to keep you busy for your stay. Kids love our place, and they will talk to you for years about the time they caught a catfish. Another good reason to choose us is for your family event! We can host up to 350 persons for the day as well as offer overnight accommodations for 14. Corporate or business events are perfect to rent the farm for just a day or an overnight retreat! We have lots of room in our Milkhouse for up to 30-50 persons with tables. We have all the tech you need as well with flat screen monitors and an entire farm that is a huge hot spot.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
You will not find many places that get your family and friends 30 acres of private country living for your stay. This property is awsome and even offers one of the best lakes in the region for other water sports--just 4 miles away! - Cherokee lake offers great fishing and we can even offer a fishing guide for a fee. Our guide could be blindfolded and dropped from in the middle of Cherokee Lake and take you directly to the best fishing nearby that spot. This guy has fished this lake all his life and is a great guy to fish with. His fee is reasonable and you will truly enjoy your day on the lake. Oh yeah, he'll make sure you take some supper home... Food. A great option for our property is to have a meal prepared for you in our kitchen for your family. The meal is comprised with southern cooking and hospitality in mind. Expect to have left overs for snacks! This is again a special part of your stay. You can enjoy this each day or you can just have breakfast made for you on certain days. Pond guide. Our lake fishing guide is available also for an evening of fishing on the pond. This is a great way to introduce your family to fishing for catfish. You can bet your family will always remember fishing as the sun goes down and having caught fish on the side of our pond! We also think that your stay should include great photos. You of course can take your own or have a photographer come and take photos one evening. The sitting fee in modest and the prints are purchased as you like. All in all our family farm is a unbelieveable experience. We hope you will enjoy.

Very relaxing property! Great for family
Very good experience
Hey Mardie, It was great to have your family to the farm. Tell the kids the chickens miss them!
More then just a rental!
My family and I were looking for something quiet and cozy on our way home from a week of softball near Nashville, and we found more with this gem. The owner Shawn was right when he list it at more then just a rental, it’s definitely a experience! My kids loved the farm! If they weren’t out on the canoe, paddle board or Kayak on the pond they were chasing the many chickens around the farm. Shawn’s helper Ashley was awesome! He took the kids to feed the cattle and told us all the hot spots to check out, and they both were only a phone call away if needed. The house is so relaxing and cozy! My wife fell in love as soon as she stepped in the door. The house was very clean, and everyone slept well each night in the comfortable beds.
Plenty to do in the area, we rented a pontoon boat at Black Oak Marina, which was very reasonable and a great time. We took a trip to Panther Run State Park 20 minutes away that had some great trails. We also spent the day at Smoky Mountain National Park(around 1:20 minutes away) which was amazing with the views.
Even though we are 9 1/2 hours from this property in PA, we are already looking at dates in the future to get back down here for a longer vacation! If your looking for a cozy quiet place to relax and spend a few days, this is the place!!
So glad that your family could enjoy the adventures of both the area and the farm. We love to see others enjoy all the great spaces on the farm, so it was a joy to have you here. We'll look forward to a future visit!
We had a great experience at the Wilmoth’s property. I would recommend the farm for any get together or family vacation.
Thanks, Holly! We're so glad you enjoyed your celebration at the farm. :)
This place was amazing for our family. We had a great time!! The little ones loved the chickens, fishing, and canoe oh and the game room was a plus too. Definitely a wonderful place to visit with the family.
Lisa we are so glad your family had fun on the farm. Kids of all ages love coming here. We hope you can make it back to Milkbarn soon. Thanks so much for the shout out!
Beautifully maintained property. Loved the decor of the Milkhouse! Spacious and comfortable! Owners always responsive and kind. It was only 2 of us, but a large group would be very comfortable here. Highly recommended. We had a lovely, peaceful weekend.
Thank you so much for staying at the farm and the kind comments. We would love to have you back sometime soon!
Close to perfect!
Our stay was pretty close to perfect. Shawn and Priscilla were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Our girls enjoyed collecting eggs and holding th me chickens. The house was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. When we weren’t fishing or exploring the region, we enjoyed the game room or watched movies on one of the TVs. We spent every evening on front of either the wood fire pit or one of the gas fire pits making s’mores. Good times!
The only negative was the pond was not as well stocked as I had hoped. We saw a couple of catfish, a couple of box turtles, and lot of 3” blue gill. My girls and enjoyed fishing at the pond, don’t get me wrong. I had been hoping for more catfish and larger bluegill, but I understand the nature of the ecosystem with the cranes devouring the larger fish population.
In any case, Cherokee Lake and Sevierville were less than 30 minutes away, and we had a blast exploring both. My family and I enjoyed our stay in Tennessee. It was peaceful and relaxing. I’m pretty sure we will be back in the future!
It was so nice to have you guys on the farm. We really appreciate the review. It’s great to see families enjoying time together on the entire property.
We hope to see you again soon. (We hope you become regulars :-) ) Tell the girls that our “girls” miss them already!
Dollywood Splash Country and Dollywood Theme park are just 40 minutes away!
One of the areas greatest fishing, sailing, and water skiing is at Cherokee Lake--just 5 miles away.
