About Alex Knight
The Outpost became a beloved, shared paradise for Ed and Alex in 2013. We grew up in the same small town in Mississippi and were close friends during High School. After losing touch, as often happens in life, we were reunited 30 years later to become the dearest of friends. I, (Alex), had relocated to this area several years earlier. As Ed made frequent visits to the area from his home in north Mississippi he quickly fell in love with the countryside, mountains and people, but especially with the Nolichucky River, also affectionately known as "Alex's River". It was blessed fate that this property presented itself. We look forward to sharing all that The Outpost has to offer in peace, solitude, beauty and nature.
Alex Knight purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Alex Knight chose Jonesborough
A true get-away-from-it all destination, but a central location for many attractions. Explore the area one day, relax in the hammock or with some fishing or floating the next. Locally owned restaurants are within miles of the cabin if you want to escape from the cooking as well! It can be what you want it to be.......... (Perhaps enjoy cooking for a change! You can watch the river as you do!) The Outpost is far from fancy. It is rustic and comfortable and most importantly, clean and well cared for. We want you to feel at ease and at home. So come experience what is The Outpost. The solace and the peace. Maybe just plain fun that perhaps you haven't allowed yourself to have in some time. Disconnect and de-VICE. Connect with those you love including yourself. Just as importantly, connect with nature and all that it has to offer. The Outpost provides for a soulful experience. Words seem empty; pictures do not do it justice.
What makes this Cabin unique
Truly secluded and private with serene views from every angle. You will struggle with which "spot" is your favorite! At times you have the sense you are in a treehouse as you watch the river flow from the porches and decks. I truly believe if you were to experience The Outpost, you would feel it's pull on your heart long after your departure.

I rented the Outpost for 4 nights with my parents, sister, and nephew & niece and we enjoyed everything about our stay! As other reviewers have said, the cabin is comfortable, beyond well-equipped, and located in a beautiful setting. Alex and Ed made sure everything was clean, stocked, and ready for us. We wish we could have stayed longer! The kids had plenty of games and the basketball & hoop made my 10-yr-old nephew very happy. We had a great time swimming in the river and we all enjoyed the hot water in the outdoor shower. I could go on forever but the other glowing reviews capture my thoughts very well! My parents only live an hour away, but I will be trying to find excuses for us all to stay here again!
Wonderful way to rest and relax!
Property is absolutely beautiful. Owner Alex is very attentive and takes immaculate care of the property. Our family of 5 enjoyed the river, pond, and stream. A lot to see in the area but we really just enjoyed coming home to the Outpost!
What a great place to relax and enjoy nature!! Place is perfect! Alex has thought of everything you might need and has it in place for you.
We had a restful stay there just wish we got to spend more time at the house.
HEAVEN ON THE RIVER!!
We didn’t want to leave!!! Most places we stay are just that......places to sleep in locations we are visiting. But this cabin is truly a destination in and of itself. The overly generous deck and porch space right on the river are perfect for relaxing with loved ones or on your own. Hammock, ceiling fans, rocking chairs, brand new gas grill......the amenities for relaxation are endless. We didn’t even have time to take advantage of them all....the fire pit, swings, games and huge movie collection. The pond is beautiful, and the property is so large that privacy is top notch even outdoors. To me, it was an embarrassment of riches. And on top of that, the location is perfectly situated amongst nature’s beauty. Waterfalls and the Unaka mountains nearby are a must see. You won’t find a better stocked kitchen or a nicer or more gracious host. Alex went above and beyond in her hospitality. I can’t say enough good things about this place other than I can’t wait to go back!
Perfect family vacation
Our family of seven, and our dog, stayed at this property as a way to unplug from our busy lives. It did not disappoint. Our kids had an amazing time exploring the pond, creek, and river all accessible from the property.
It’s clean, comfortable, and very spacious. The enormous deck was great. Alex is great and made us feel so welcome. We all look forward to spending more time at the outpost in the near future.
Property was beautiful and cabin extra clean. Host was super helpful.
Great, look forward to returning .
