'The Briar Patch' welcomes you in this quiet wooded lot set on over five acres of land inside Clifftops Resort, a 2000 acre Gated Community on Monteagle Mountain. This wonderful Retreat sits on just over five acres of land and perfect for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life.
Enjoy the wild azaleas, the viburnum, and over 20 varieties of hydrangeas, and many other flowering finds in this spacious home deep within the woods. It is a perfect retreat for a family of several families to get away to renew your mind in the quiet setting deep within the woods.
The master bedroom, on the ground level has a queen-size bed with a nice large bath and a footed tub for relaxing. The upstairs has two queen-size bedrooms and then a children's room with three twin beds. These rooms share a spacious bath on the second floor. One of the queen bedrooms has it's own private bath.
The beautifully finished home has a spacious living room with a wonderful wood burning stove that keeps you warm on the cool evenings. The well stocked kitchen has a jenn air stove, microwave, and all the comforts of home.
Enjoy the nice evening sounds and the flowering trees in your favorite rocker on the porch that wraps around the front of the house. A wonderful place for a glass of wine and the sounds of the woods to keep you company. There is also a deck on the side to enjoy nature at it's best.
In Clifftops, you can enjoy the wonders in the woods with a 60 acre private lake including a beach. There are two club houses, a swimming pool, tennis courts, walking and jogging trails, horse stables, and a mountain overlook picnic area. You are only minutes away from the University of the South/Sewanee and St. Andrews School. There is a local fee market each weekend, and there are many restaurants, crafts, antiques, and stores near by. There are several state parks and hiking areas with spectacular falls and all levels of hiking trails very close by. There is even golf for those who can not stand a weekend away without their sticks.
Close to Birmingham and Sewanne
Hiking and just being out doors.
Our large family (7 kids) rented The Briar Patch as we moved our oldest into his Freshman dorm at Sewanee. It was a great house for us. Warm, cozy, relaxing home base between events at Sewanee throughout the weekend. The little ones explored the "woods" around the house. My wife & I enjoyed morning coffee on the spacious porches. The owner was gracious & kind. We're coming back!!!
This home is tucked away in the woods. The four bedrooms are well appointed and there are ample spaces in the house to relax as well as to dine. Clifftops is close to Monteagle and Sewanee and many wonderful hiking locations.
Our combined family of 10 plus two dogs (with permission of the owner) enjoyed everything about being on the Mountain again. The home provided plenty of space for all of us and the surrounding area offered recreation without leaving the friendly confines of the Cliff Tops property. It is extremely easy to occupy six children in a lovely swimming pool for an extended period of time. They just loved it. The general location is a perfect jump off for visiting Sewanee and to access the hiking trails beyond Monteagle as well as those within the property. I am happy that we chose this venue for our annual family holiday.
Our daughter got married at the Lake near this home on June 11 and we stayed 4 nights at the Briar Patch with other adult children and my 91 year old mother. The place was perfect for all 9 of us! The kitchen had everything we needed. Most of all, the home provided a quiet respite for us when we needed a quiet atmosphere to re-charge! We highly recommend this home for your vacation.
Briar Patch was amazing. We had a wedding to attend and family from four different states. It was perfect. We had a small lake to take the baby swimming and the pool at the club house as well. Just being out in the quiet and having privacy from the hustle and bustle of big city living was wonderful. Our host was very accomodating. It is definitely a really wonderful home for families and friends to stay. Three full bathrooms make it so easy for the families. The surrounding area is wonderful as well. We took a hike to Foster Falls, just be sure you pack tennis shoes. Thank you Elna.
The house was perfect for a girls get away. There are plenty of opportunities for multiple groups to catch up with each other and then a large dining room table and enough swings and rockers for the whole group to gather. The entire house was clean and the yard/gardens were well maintained. And so many bunnies!
