We reached out to Betty 3 years ago in order to lock down the week of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. She was very accommodating even though we could not book it that far in advance.
The cabin is huge, and it sits on a very large over-sized lot that is well maintained. To us, avid cooks that we are, the best part was the industrial sized kitchen. The pictures do not do it justice (Betty do you want my pics of the kitchen?). Its perfectly suited for several people to be preparing food simultaneously, there are no shortage of sinks and stainless steel prep surfaces. We also took advantage of the BBQ grill and made some St. Louis style ribs that came out perfect.
The grandkids enjoyed the pool practically every day they were there and it was sparkling clean and refreshing.
The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully appointed with nice furniture and seating. Everything was clean and well maintained. Every room had its own TV as well. The internet connection worked great for us, though we did have trouble in the beginning due to the very long and case sensitive password with it, but it worked fine after that.
The combination living/dining area (great room) is huge, and has high vaulted ceilings. The rustic timbers used to build the cabin are exposed to the inside and add to the wonderful atmosphere. I don't know when this was built, but it had a very pioneering days look to it.
Betty was super nice and even provided a new blender which was needed for our cooking. She even upped the speed on the internet as we ran into some buffering issues on the living room TV, though we did not have time at the end to test the upgrade. I suggested simply adding an apple TV or similar device could solve the problem once and for all. This was only for using Netflix, etc. regular TV channels came in perfectly.
We had a blast overall and would love to come back someday and hang out and use it as a base for launching into visits to Nashville or the Land between the lakes national park.
Beautiful cabin..... clean and comfortable... would recommend to anyone.... plan on a bigger group next time.. ty
