Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Need a break from the stress of city life? Do you enjoy outdoor activities? Come to the Cumberland Plateau and stay at the Carriage House. If you love hiking, cycling, and outdoor activities you can do them here or practically anywhere in a thirty-mile radius, in which numerous waterfalls are located. South Cumberland State Park Visitor and Information Center is about 7 minutes away. The park, which includes Sewanee Natural Bridge, Fiery Gizzard Trail (ranked in the top 25 by Backpacker), Foster Falls, Savage Gulf, Stone Door, Greeter Falls, Meadow Trail and Grundy Lakes has some of the most noted hiking trails in the country. The Mountain Goat Trail, between Sewanee and Monteagle, is also a lot of fun. If you truly need to relax, go no further than the gardens and trails of the Carriage House. We are nestled approximately 1.5 miles from Highway 56 on part of a 400-acre farm. The Carriage House is the end of the trail and is quiet and peaceful. The butterfly garden attracts many visitors. It is filled with butterfly bushes, bee balm, lantana, phlox, lilies and of course, butterflies. Hostas, trilliums, and columbine make up the shade garden. Red Bud, dogwood and river birch are beautiful spring, summer, and fall. A short walk away is the lake. The ducks are very friendly and love to be fed. Hopefully, you'll also see a visiting Blue Heron, eagle, deer or turkey. We have built a cabin on the lake, you can watch the fish jump or other wildlife from the porch, fish from the jetty or pitch horseshoes on the dam. We've also added a picnic area with a firepit in the cabin area. From the lake, walk up the trail and visit our miniature donkeys, Lizzie and Sadie or go in the other direction to Buzzard Rock with its spectacular view of the gulf and Payne's Cove. We don't charge you to bring your pet and we've added a deck to the entrance where you can keep them when they want some fresh air.

Location

We are located atop the plateau about 1.5 miles from Highway 56. We are surrounded by state parks, Savage Gulf, Foster Falls, Fiery Gizzard, and other parts of the South Cumberland State Park. You might be interested in seeing the historic coke ovens or walking the trails around Tracy Lakes. After your hike, visit the oldest bakery in Tennessee, The Dutch Maid Bakery. The University of the South is only a short distance away, where cultural activities abound. Concerts, plays, and guests speakers are regular fare. Head in the opposite direction and visit Beersheba Springs with its historic Methodist Assembly Grounds and its original log homes.

If you are hungry a 10- minute drive takes you to Monteagle for fast food or relaxed dining. The Smoke House offers live music on weekends. High Point provides historic dining on the summit between Chicago and Miami. Local legend has it that Al Capone stayed at High Point on trips between his Chicago and Florida homes.

If you want to stay closer to home we are located on a 400- acre farm with several miles of bluff views, walking trails, and roads. Bring your camera.

The reservation software asks for payment on the day the reservation is made, even if it's 5 minutes to midnight. Please pay at your convenience. Also, instead of tax not included, the listing should state that there is no tax. Also, the payment requests states that you should call before paying. If you're using a credit card I see no need to call, unless that's something you want to do.

Owner's Cancellation Policy
