About the property

3 Bedroom/2 Bath Lodge, overlooking Clinch Mountain, with spectucular views

Looking for peace and quiet? This newly renovated Lodge is part of a 140 acre, self-sustainable farm, located far away from any busy road. It is a refuge from all of the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to the hustle and bustle that it is worth the trip to be able to come back to your own little slice of heaven at the end of the day. Six can sleep comfortably (1 King, 1 Queen and 2 Twins). On-site amenities include hiking, fishing, or just enjoying the mountain views from one of the porches, or from the fire pit. Fully stocked kitchen. Washer and dryer. Outdoor grill.

About Kevin Wiles

Welcome to COSY Farms. When we, Kevin & Tina, decided to buy a place where we and our families could get away from the "city life", we decided to REALLY get away, and picked a very remote location in a very small town.

Kevin Wiles purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Kevin Wiles chose Washburn

COSY Farms has allowed us to grow our own, all natural foods, and share our philosophy of self-sustainability with those who visit the farm that have interest - or just give folks a way to "get back to nature".

What makes this lodge unique

The ponds, creek, pastures, views, and old, huge trees, together with the uniqueness of the homes and barns located on the property (a cabin and barn that are over 150 years old), and seashells in the rocks at the top of the mountain (if you are able to make it up there), remind us all of what has been, and of what is really important.

The Lodge at COSY Farms

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at "the Lodge"! It was so serene out in the country with the great views and the peaceful quiet. Our long weekend was planned to get us a close place to stay while we worked on our own piece of heaven 12 miles down the road. We were able to get a lot of work done and at the end of the day come back to this beautiful place to rest, tour the property on the golf cart, visit Jack & Jill, Kusco, Boots, Tiki and the rest of the goats and chickens. The Dollar General in Washburn provided a close place to pick up most essentials and Tazewell (our future hometown) has everything else we needed with some restaurants, liquor store, Food City and Ingle, the Co-op farm supply and of course Walmart. Thank you again Kevin and Tina, it was great to meet you and make new friends near our future home....we'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Gene! Sorry for the delay in response, things have been a little crazy for the last couple of weeks. We very much enjoyed your visit with us, and do, sincerely, hope that you return...maybe next time you can do a little less "work", and get a little more time off to just relax! See you soon!

Secluded and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 nights here with our three young kids. When I booked this, I was worried that the kids would be bored since there's no pool, no playground or the typical amenities that parents look for when booking a vacation. However, it was nice to be able to let the kids pretty much run free in and out of the house at will, as there is literally nothing else coming up to the house. They seemed to entertain themselves chasing lizards, picking flowers and the few toys we brought with us as well. As for the cabin, it's very homey and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with spices and basic pantry items which came in handy. The sunset views are spectacular from the back porch and where our evenings as a family were spent. There were a few issues partly because you're in the woods, while we were there we had a mouse problem but it wasn't awful, and Kevin was treating while we were there for the mice. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our time there. My kids loved riding around on the golf cart (we did many laps around the farm!) and fishing in the pond. We visited Pigeon Forge twice while there which is about 1.5 hours from the cabin so we just had to plan carefully before leaving. We also visit Briarwood Auto Safari about 45min away which I highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Mindy, for your kind words. We are glad you and your family had a good time while visiting. Many apologies for the mouse (it has since been removed - something Kevin wasn't comfortable doing with small children in the Lodge while you folks were still there). Unfortunately, field mice, as well as many other "creatures," like the woods as much, if not more, than we humans do. Please know that we do all that we can to make sure that all of the woodland creatures stay outside, where they belong, but occasionally they show us how "smart" they are. We hope your family will come visit again, and that you have a wonderful rest of your summer! Warm regards, Kevin and Tina The Lodge at COSY Farms

It's relaxing and quiet. There's farm animals and places to walk around. There's a pond if you want to fish. It's just is a beautiful place.

The beauty of the 5 star place is so breath taking that all you want to do is spend time on the back porch and feeling relaxed and at peace. Perfect place.

Thank you Kevin and Tina for this wonderful birthday weekend.

Very secluded and peaceful location. If you want to get away from it all, but still drive to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Morristown, Knoxville or Bristol for a day of park activities, shopping, fishing, a football game or a race, you're not that far away. But at the end of the day, you can come back to a night, or a couple of days, of truly quiet time.

The Farm is situated between Norris Lake and Cherokee Lake; access to either is within a 20 minute drive, and both have boat rentals (if you don't have your own) for great fishing.

The Farm itself has 2 stocked, spring fed ponds, and several farm animals that are "kid friendly".

Only serious hikers should attempt to hike up the portion of Clinch Mountain located on the Farm, but all are welcome to try.

If you have a horse of your own, we have a stable available, along with a pasture for overnight/weekend stays, and know of a few nice rides in the area.

Nights by the fire pits, especially in the Fall and Spring, are truly COSY.

Bird watching and wildlife viewing are incredible, as we have several acres of "untouched" forest on the Farm...deer, turkey, many bird species, butterflies, fox squirrels, lightning bugs...there is always something to watch, no matter the season.

The "Lodge" as we call it, has basic TV and a stereo system, a DVD/VHS player and a landline (as most cell phone carriers are not covered in this area).

It is truly a place to be "on vacation" for a few days or a week. Read, listen to music, enjoy the outdoors, and most of all, the peace and quiet...get COSY!
