Privately set on a ridge with an unobstructed year round view of Center Hill Lake, 'Due West' is a custom three level cabin. This spacious cabin is a perfect getaway for several couples or multiple families. The main living area has wooden beams throughout with stunning lake views from all rooms.

'Due West', is located on Center Hill Lake, 72 miles from Nashville, Tennessee and 15 miles from shopping and numerous restaurants in near by Cookeville, Tennessee. The cabin is within minutes of Cookeville boat dock marina which offers overnight slip rentals by the day, boat rentals, and a wonderful restaurant well known for their delicious food and homemade pies.

This rustic cabin is wonderfully decorated, boasting numerous antiques and furnishings constructed out of reclaimed timber, some from the old Jim Beam distillery in nearby Kentucky. All bedrooms feature luxury linens including 300+ thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows. Comfortably from any one of the three decks you can sun, grill, dine, enjoy music, soak in the hot tub while watching the sunset and stargazing. The (provided) telescope will give you a guided tour of the universe. The main living room has a 55" LCD TV with satellite TV, DVD player and a cozy fireplace. In the bonus room we have an additional 40" flat panel TV with DVD, wet bar and wifi internet. Just outside the bonus room is a free standing hand chiseled stone fire pit with wooden benches.

The master bedroom has a wall of windows including a large picture window which looks out over the lake. Imagine waking up in the 'Big Boss Man' king-size bed hand-crafted from Cypress timber obtained from a 150 year old Mississippi barn. Then enjoying breakfast from your own private deck while soaking in the tranquility of the lake.

There are two bedrooms located on the third level, both having large picture windows overlooking the lake. (king bedroom and bunk bedroom) The third bedroom is located on the first level ( queen bedroom) adjacent to the bonus room, bar and bathroom.

Just down the hill from the cabin you have access to the lake. The lake offers excellent fishing, swimming, waterfalls, hiking, and water skiing. Bring hiking boots and enjoy dozens of trails and fun. We offer our guests free access to a three person kayak perfect for exploring the lake and fishing. A pair of bald eagles have nested directly across from the cabin on Davies Island. The eagles can regularly be seen catching fish and flying in the area. The nest is visible from the balcony off the master bedroom through the provided telescope.

Your search is have found the perfect cabin on Centerhill lake!!

What a wonderful close get away for a bunch of chicks to reconnect to laugh, cry and pray together. I would highly recommend arriving in daylight hours as the last few miles are a little tricky. There was 7 in our party and ample bedding available. The only thing, we wish we had more comfy space on the main floor for sitting around, but because of the amazing deck with comfy chairs and perfect weather, we made it work outside. THANK YOU WILSONS for sharing your home away from home with us!!!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We picked this home out of pure luck. We weren't sure what or where we wanted to go for vacation this year. The home is gorgeous with a spectacular view. Plenty of room and easy assess to several state parks with incredible water falls and Center Hill Lake. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Amazing View / Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family recently stayed at Due West for 3 nights celebrating my Dad’s 70th birthday and had a wonderful time. The cabin is decorated beautifully and the view from the cabin is absolutely amazing. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit was great for roasting marshmallows and enjoying s’mores. The large deck had plenty of comfortable seating and a large table for all to be together and enjoy the amazing view. Our family brought a boat that we were able to dock overnight at the Cookeville Boat Dock. The trip back and forth from the cabin to the dock was very convenient. We also ate dinner one night at the Lighthouse Restaurant at the Cookeville Boat Dock and had a great meal. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone traveling to Center Hill Lake for a relaxing vacation.

We stayed at Due West from June 29 - July 4, 2014. The rental was amazing and had all that we were looking for in our Tennessee vacation. The owners were great also. We had some questions upon arrival and they were very quick at getting back to us and helping out. There are many waterfalls / state parks within a half hour drive of the rental, which I highly recommend. There are also some lake access areas close by that we could take the kids swimming. The lake also offers excellent fishing. We rented a pontoon boat for a day from Cookville Dock and the kids had a blast. Most of the fish we caught were fun for the kids to reel in. We did boat one big catfish! Due West has amazing views from the decks. We loved eating dinner on the deck and watching the sun set every night. I highly recommend this property if you are looking for a Tennessee mountain get away.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking to getaway for the weekend and I came upon this house. Not only is the house beautiful but the view is gorgeous! We loved the log cabin type feel of the house and all of the wonderful decorations. The Master bed was also great, the feather pillows and a down comforter make you feel like you are on a cloud. I have to say that having a hot tub was one of the selling points of us picking this house for our stay; and this hot tub was not only very nice and warm but also came with a wonderful view. Due to the way the house sits on the point of the land you feel as if you have no neighbors and that you are the only ones around. We also went to Burgess falls; it was nice to go see such beautiful scenery and it was only about 15-20 minutes away. The owners have really made this place very homey and accommodating to guests. There were nice embroidered towels, beach towels, coffee filters, children's toys, and lots of kitchen accessories that you don't usually see in other rentals. The owners are also very nice people to work with. I ended up accidently leaving something at the house and they had it returned to me. We will definitely be having more vacations at Due west.

Charming Location

We had a girls trip at this Cabin! It accommodated all 7 of us very comfortably. The house had everything we needed. It was so charming and the decor was perfect! The view waking up was spectacular and it made for some amazing sunsets as well.
