The outdoor porch with fireplace totally made the house, as we spent most of our adult hang-out time there.  Area was fun even in the rains. Went hiking in BSF Park, local trails, Stearns Railway, Cumberland Falls Park & horseback riding (down the street). Good times had by all!

We came here for our honeymoon! It was perfect! Just what we were looking for. Total privacy. We are in our 30’s and didn’t want the “average” honeymoon experience. We hope to come back again!

Beautiful remote setting right on the edge of the park but yet very convenient to the best places to hike. We especially enjoyed sitting under the covered porch in front of a fire in the outdoor fireplace while it rained. We will definitely be back!


Also, here is the list of things we did NOT hear at the cabin: traffic sounds, airplanes, noisy neighbors, loud music. Here are the things we did hear during our stay: rain on a tin roof, Barred Owls, Whipoorwill, all manner of songbirds, Bobcats, an occasional horse neighing, and laughter around the dinner table.!

Just enough things to do in the area and still be relaxing. The cabin is secluded enough that you feel you're all alone - except for the deer visiting just off the deck the last night . . . .

★★★★★ Hemlock Bluff Cabin is truly a beautiful, secluded, luxury cabin. If you want to be away from the city rat race for a quiet, peaceful, and serene atmosphere, this is it. There is no Dollywood here.  This is for the nature lovers.

The cabin is nestled in the woods adjacent to the Big South Fork. Out every window is a view of the beautiful flora and fauna. We had a deer siting out the bedroom window one morning, took a lovely walk near the cabin and drove a short way for an easy hike to Angel Falls. The hot tub on the deck was fantastic in January. Truly a peaceful, enchanting getaway.

This is a perfect location to get away from it all, but still able to get to a store or see the sights.  The Jacuzzi bathtub is FANTASTIC!  Thanks for leaving seed for the bird feeder. Also saw a flying squirrel on the feeder at 1:00 a.m.

P.S. Great book collection!
