Why Denise Tabscott chose Culleoka
We love the country and historic homes and looked for years for a property like this. When we found this property we fell in love with it and look forward to retiring there. We often come for relaxing weekends and vacations and love unplugging and unwinding and being in the middle of nature. Life tends to slow down when you are at the Historic Hideaway and we can't wait to share that experience with our guests.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Make sure to pull up a lawn chair in the back yard in the summertime and watch the millions of fireflies dance in the twilight during the summer months. This house was built with a breezeway effect so to cool down open the front door and pull down the screen and open the back door and allow the cool breeze to come through the house.

Great place to relax
We spent a few days here for our anniversary and enjoyed a relaxing time. The property is beautiful and the location is peaceful and quiet. We also enjoyed watching the deer and wild turkey that frequented the property every morning and evening. A great place to vacation!
We are so very glad you enjoyed your time! Thank you for taking such great care of the property!
LOVE THIS HISTORICAL GETAWAY
With over 4000 s.f. this home was very spacious and charming. We absolutely loved the setting and the property. We would love for everyone to experience the history that this home portrays.
Unkept, dirty - filty, has seen better days!
So disappointed! The house needed to be cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. That house had not been cleaned in a very long time! It is evident of the dirty floors, BUGS everywhere, rat traps all over the house, All of the windows had LIVE and dead bugs left in them and on the floors. Bathrooms urine around the toilet on the floor, sinks & tubs dirty. Dirty towels left in the washing machine. Dirt and trash under the couch seats. THE HOUSE IS JUST FILTY! Upon entering the house all you can smell is musty odors! I don't know if the owners have visited the 776410 property lately, but that house needs lots of upkeep and CLEANING! The owners excuse was that "the house is old", does not negate the fact that the house is dirty. I have pictures of the filth.! I was so embarrassed that my guest had to help me clean the house, do the laundry - wash the sheets, towels, remake the beds with the clean linens, just so we could stay in it. We were told that the house was clean and that wasn't true, so we were not trusting that the linens had been changed and cleaned. We did not have time to try to find another place to stay at the late hour before the events that was that was already scheduled. And trust that going to a hotels would have been cheaper/night than what we paid when all of the fees are added!!! First approach, the grass had not been cut, the back & front porch was covered with dirt & leaves; paint & some wallpaper is pilling, front porch had old broken chairs with no bottoms. Inside the house, curtains in some of the rooms are hanging off the rods, mattress that didn't fit the bed that it was on, badly stained mattress, the oven had stuck on and baked on food on the racks and bottom (dirty). I was on Facetime with the owner/she saw some of the mess. The owner did refund the cleaning fee because she could not get the cleaning lady to come until after our check out time. The owner and VRBO should be ashamed to rent this house in the condition that it is in. VRBO should not list this property until it has been brought up to some basic codes & restoration back to how the listing pictures show that it WAS! There was a service fee charged, but this property was defiantly a disservice to me and the other guest. Everyone left your property with a feeling of injustice and disappointment.
Sorry the site will not allow me to upload the CURRENT pictures with this message!
Disappointed to see that after my graciousness of allowing Lou to check in a half a day early that she would be so untruthful. The house was professionally cleaned a few days before Lou's arrival. There are so many untruthful things in this review. The day before her arrival 2 brand new A/C units, a new water heater and a dehumidifier were also added to the property as upgrades. I thought maybe there was some dust left from the workmen so I offered to try to get my cleaning lady out there again. This is simply a case of a renter not understanding what type of property she was renting as well as someone trying to get something for nothing. In fact, Lou was untruthful in the amount of guests she had at the property as was evident from the FaceTime call she made when she arrived. As to the late hour I believe she called at 9 am because I said she was welcome to check in early. Our home is surrounded by 200+ acres and is in TN, the bugs she referred to are common aphids (ladybugs) that are frequent during the summer months. She face timed and showed me about 7-8 dead ladybugs. Because of summer rains the lawn was unable to be cut before her arrival but was cut the next day, while she was there. During our call I explained that the house had been fully cleaned but in wanting her to be satisfied I would try to get the cleaner out there again, when she was unable to come I refunded Lou her cleaning fee as a courtesy. I also said that she would be welcome to not check in and find other accommodations and I would refund her money but she refused. It was only after she completed her stay that she tried to get me to refund her money, in essence getting her stay for free. Our home is lovely and enjoyed by many as is evident by the many 4 and 5 star reviews that it has received. Not even 3 weeks later you will see a five star review for this property. I know that travelers will be able to see through this untrue review and enjoy our wonderful historic home.
The house was just right for our extended family group from several states, for an early Christmas.
The property is in a beautiful rural location which is quiet and private. It was cold when we visited, so down comforters which I took were welcomed. In the more pleasant weather though, I would definitely give it a 5.
Very relaxing, beautiful home
The home is very spacious and cozy! Everything is provided from towels right down to the bathroom supplies. Enjoyed staying here, the check in was amazing, all made very easy. We will definitely return this home. Thank you again for amazing stay. The beds slept wonderful.
Great country setting
We greatly enjoyed the historic hideaway. It was centrally located for our needs and was a welcome change of scenery from our home area of coastal Georgia.
