An Original Log Cabin Adjacent To The Museum Of Appalachia In Norris Tenn
Robert and Robin Sain
About Robert and Robin Sain
Bob and Robin Sain are the owners of the Cabin along with their dogs, cats, birds, and horses. As ‘custodians’ of the Foust cabin we are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of it by minimizing the impact of providing conveniences of modern living for our guests. As we restored each cabin we took steps to ensure the original structural integrity of each cabin was retained as much as we could and still comply with local building codes.
Robert and Robin Sain purchased this Cabin in 1994
Why Robert and Robin Sain chose Clinton
The Foust family cabin is unique as it is an artifact of the history of Appalachia that is rapidly disappearing. It has endured the passage of time for over 150 years if not longer. One of our primary goals is to preserve it so it may survive for many years to come. Robin and I view our ownership of this cabin as being temporary custodians until we pass it on to the next generation of owners. We want to use this time to collect as much information as we can about the history and background of the cabin and the families who lived in it.

Everything we needed for an enjoyable stay
We stayed at the Foust Cabin for six nights while we did some hiking on the local trails. The cabin was a unique experience given its history, while also being comfortable and well-equipped. Robert and Robin were very helpful and responsive in making sure we had what we needed to maximize our enjoyment of the cabin, such as bringing us plenty of wood so we could use the gorgeous fireplace. They were also a great source of information about the local area and helped us identify some hiking experiences that we wouldn't have known about. We would definitely recommend the Foust Cabin to others.
The cabin was exactly how advertised. Modern ammedities but keeping the1800's charm.
My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend getaway. The cabin was cozy and just what we needed to get unplugged! We will diffinitely return.

Charming cabin in the woods
Had a wonderful time visiting the Norris and Knoxville TN area. The cabin and property were well taken care of and the character of these old cabins were just perfect for a weekend getaway. Robert and Robin were super friendly and accommodating!
Secluded and relaxing weekend
It was a great time relaxing and unwinding in this marvelous 1860 era cabin. Located near the interstate and main roads, but far away from noise car or anything else. The owners were so kind and ready to help with anything. Everything that is described and many more in there. Cozy, clean, and all the necessary amenities for cooking or even watching TV, Netflix, or just listening music in the background. A fantastic experience that we will definitely want to go back.
Beautiful, Rustic, and Romantic
This cabin is fantastic!! Beautiful, private setting with so much charm and character! The cabin is well appointed with many conveniences. The living room is very welcoming with a large stone fireplace and comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped. The cozy loft bedroom has a king sized bed that overlooks the living area below. The front porch has rockers and a swing with cushions. We highly recommend this cabin. This cabin is CLEAN and well kept!! It is also very easy to find even though when you’re there...you feel like you were away from everything. There are restaurants, gas stations, and attractions close by as well.
Kristen: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We really appreciate it. You were wonderful guests who are welcome back any time. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit.
