This was a great place to come back to after a day of hiking down at Cumberland Falls. It is nothing fancy and could maybe use some new linens, but everything was clean and comfortable. Beautiful, quiet area with a lovely, peaceful atmosphere. Thanks!

This place was an answer to prayer. We needed a place to
relax, rest, and commune with God, and we found it at
Wildcat Cottage. The biggest noise we noticed was every
once in a while an airplane going over would be noticed.
The hummingbirds were a delight to watch, and the mountains will take your breath away. There wasn't a need to find a restaurant because we did our own cooking.
You will find Pete and Julee to be very pleasant people.
The cottage is clean, comfortable; a place to return to.

This cabin was a half way meeting point for me and my best friend. It was very cozy, clean, and the views are amazing. There are historic landmarks nearby and miles of trails to walk! Our hosts were so kind and had everything we could possible want in the cabin. The back deck is very roomy and the porch swing wonderful to read a book on! We will return as soon as we can! We love everything about it!

After arriving, we were greeted and welcomed to the cottage. Pete and Julee made us feel right at home.The cottage's centerpiece is a beautiful stone fireplace.My favorite is the covered back porch:hummingbirds flitting about while horses grazed to the left and the cows meandered to the right. Bring your camera for gorgeous shots !
