Privately set on a ridge with an unobstructed year round view of Center Hill Lake, 'Due West' is a custom three level cabin. This spacious cabin is a perfect getaway for several couples or multiple families. The main living area has wooden beams throughout with stunning lake views from all rooms.

'Due West', is located on Center Hill Lake, 72 miles from Nashville, Tennessee and 15 miles from shopping and numerous restaurants in near by Cookeville, Tennessee. The cabin is within minutes of Cookeville boat dock marina which offers overnight slip rentals by the day, boat rentals, and a wonderful restaurant well known for their delicious food and homemade pies.

This rustic cabin is wonderfully decorated, boasting numerous antiques and furnishings constructed out of reclaimed timber, some from the old Jim Beam distillery in nearby Kentucky. All bedrooms feature luxury linens including 300+ thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows. Comfortably from any one of the three decks you can sun, grill, dine, enjoy music, soak in the hot tub while watching the sunset and stargazing. The (provided) telescope will give you a guided tour of the universe. The main living room has a 55" LCD TV with satellite TV, DVD player and a cozy fireplace. In the bonus room we have an additional 40" flat panel TV with DVD, wet bar and wifi internet. Just outside the bonus room is a free standing hand chiseled stone fire pit with wooden benches.

The master bedroom has a wall of windows including a large picture window which looks out over the lake. Imagine waking up in the 'Big Boss Man' king-size bed hand-crafted from Cypress timber obtained from a 150 year old Mississippi barn. Then enjoying breakfast from your own private deck while soaking in the tranquility of the lake.

There are two bedrooms located on the third level, both having large picture windows overlooking the lake. (king bedroom and bunk bedroom) The third bedroom is located on the first level ( queen bedroom) adjacent to the bonus room, bar and bathroom.

Just down the hill from the cabin you have access to the lake. The lake offers excellent fishing, swimming, waterfalls, hiking, and water skiing. Bring hiking boots and enjoy dozens of trails and fun. We offer our guests free access to a three person kayak perfect for exploring the lake and fishing. A pair of bald eagles have nested directly across from the cabin on Davies Island. The eagles can regularly be seen catching fish and flying in the area. The nest is visible from the balcony off the master bedroom through the provided telescope.

Your search is have found the perfect cabin on Centerhill lake!!

Perfect scenery and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with our three children from Thursday through Sunday. The house was very clean and beautiful scenery. We built a fire in the fire pit. Hiked three state parks to see amazing waterfalls all within 20 minutes of the house. Cookeville which has nice dining and all amenities is only 15 min away. This house is perfect for scenic views with central location to anything you want to do. Homeowners were very responsive and accommodating. Thank you Mr. Wilson.

Great scenic location with great views

  • 4 of 5

Marc is a great host that is very responsive. We had a great overall stay at this cabin and would stay here again. Here were our pros and cons:


- Beautiful views

- Quiet location

- Great outdoor camp fire spot

- Awesome multi-layered decks

- Indoor fire place

- Owner let us use his firewood

- Waterfalls and hiking close by

- Marina and boat rentals close by


- Roads to get there are somewhat scary; they’re not unsafe, just must be careful

- Could use more seating in main living room

- Cell service poor and WIFI not great (which may be a pro depending on what you’re looking for!)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your good review and thoughtful recommendations. We have thought about adding additional seating in the main living area but ultimately decided to add a larger sectional sofa in the area on the first level. The roads are completely safe and well maintained by the county. We are located in the foot hills of the Cumberland plateau and there is certainly no shortage of hills that add to the beautiful views. The last assent on Ford Road is a little steep but our road Dillon is a completely flat cul-de-sac. We have lived here for 11 years and there has never been a single incident. My cell phone coverage at the cabin is excellent through Verizon and I have friends that have AT&T and it is equally good. I will say that at the marina (Cookeville Boat Dock) Verizon's coverage is poor but AT&T has perfect coverage there. We also offer a landline for local calls if your carrier doesn't have good coverage in the area. The WIFI availability in the area is marginal at best. It will allow you to check emails and I am able to remote access into my office using that connection. We have tried to stream video at the cabin but the connection is just to slow. Thank you so much for your feedback. The Wilson's

What a wonderful close get away for a bunch of chicks to reconnect to laugh, cry and pray together. I would highly recommend arriving in daylight hours as the last few miles are a little tricky. There was 7 in our party and ample bedding available. The only thing, we wish we had more comfy space on the main floor for sitting around, but because of the amazing deck with comfy chairs and perfect weather, we made it work outside. THANK YOU WILSONS for sharing your home away from home with us!!!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We picked this home out of pure luck. We weren't sure what or where we wanted to go for vacation this year. The home is gorgeous with a spectacular view. Plenty of room and easy assess to several state parks with incredible water falls and Center Hill Lake. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Amazing View / Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family recently stayed at Due West for 3 nights celebrating my Dad’s 70th birthday and had a wonderful time. The cabin is decorated beautifully and the view from the cabin is absolutely amazing. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit was great for roasting marshmallows and enjoying s’mores. The large deck had plenty of comfortable seating and a large table for all to be together and enjoy the amazing view. Our family brought a boat that we were able to dock overnight at the Cookeville Boat Dock. The trip back and forth from the cabin to the dock was very convenient. We also ate dinner one night at the Lighthouse Restaurant at the Cookeville Boat Dock and had a great meal. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone traveling to Center Hill Lake for a relaxing vacation.
