Overview

Photos and Description of the Sewanee vacation house rental

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

WELCOME TO SIDEWAYS IN SEWANEE! Reserving for 2016 only. 2017 Reservations may be available at the start of 2017.

Sideways is a RUSTIC, but quaint little 3 bedroom, 1 bath house right smack in the middle of campus (the University of the South campus, that is). It's a 115 year old gem of a cottage whose poor old bones just aren't as straight as they once were.

While a bit crooked it may be, it definitely won't let you down when it comes to offering you relaxation on a budget and a great location to reconnect with alumni and friends! It's located within walking distance to the local coffee shop (Stirling's) and the local bar (Shenanigan's), as well as countless hiking trails, golf and tennis courts, lakes for fishing, and just about every University building.

It is NOT the Hilton. It's far from it. This is an OLD house that is used as a vacation home on many weekends by the owners and their spouses and looks more like a casual old vacation cabin than a fancy bed and breakfast, so please set your expectations accordingly. Think crooked floors, drafty windows, occasionally a tad musty, but with a great set of porches. If you like camping in a tent, this is one step above that! The inside looks like a box of Crayola Crayons exploded there (see photos). It was that way when we bought it many years ago and every time we think of painting it something more normal, somebody comes in and tells us we're crazy. We are starting to think maybe they are the crazy ones, but for now, prepare to wear your sunglasses inside...it's bright!

Also, it's in a WOODED area, so while it will be clean and fresh when you arrive, there is always a chance that a little bug or daddy long legs could wander in. If this kind of thing makes you queasy and sends you running to a therapist, then no hard feelings, but this probably isn't the house for you. You probably landed here because it was the least expensive option you saw, so know that there are plenty of other more expensive houses in the area on VRBO that will satisfy those with more of a Kardashian lifestyle. Don't get us wrong, Sideways is cute, it just ain't fancy. :)

Please EMAIL (don't call) for specific questions regarding renting. If we need to talk by phone, that's not a problem, but we will respond much faster by email (somebody helps us with that). Renting is allowed for University sponsored events only (if you have a question about that, just email us). Pricing is $195 per night with a 2-night minimum except during Commencement/Graduation each year. Due to the high demand, the rate for Commencement is $1500 flat rate for minimum 6 nights/7 days.

WE REQUIRE A TWO-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.

The property is located at 121 Palmetto Ave, Sewanee, TN 37375.

We look forward to letting you be a part of Sideways!
