About Gale Moore

We just bought this cabin after falling in love with Clifftops. We are swimmers, runners, cyclists, tennis players, paddlers, and fisherpeople. Clifftops had all our favorite activities in a beautiful community.

Gale Moore purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Gale Moore chose Clifftops

We like this property because it is near the front of the Clifftops development which gives easy access to trails, restaurants, and The University of the South. It is also at the end of a cul-de-sac which is an asset when little ones want to play.

What makes this cabin unique

Running out the backdoor onto a trail is a thrill for me and my dogs. Being allowed to swim a mile in a clear, clean, lake knowing I won't get creamed by a motor boat is fantastic. Being able to pull our canoe or kayak off the rack and paddle a couple of miles and fish for bass makes for a perfect evening activity.

It's like Glamping!

  • 5 of 5

Super cute spot nestled in the woods. Sitting on the back porch feels almost like you're in a tree house. Kitchen is well appointed. Beds are small but comfy. House is clean. Owners, Gale and Dick, were kind and very easy to work with. We had a fabulous weekend, and will be back!

Clifftops has so much to offer with the beautiful lake, sandy beach, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and trails going everywhere, not to mention the swimming pool. There is so much to see and do. We love sharing this special place with our guests.

Wonder cabin

We really enjoyed our time at the Cozy Cabin. This cabin was wonderful for 8 adults to sleep comfortably. Location in Cliff Tops was very convenient to the entrance and exit of the community.

Perfect Parents Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rented the Cozy Cabin for Parents Weekend and it met our needs perfectly. It was the ideal spot for us to visit with our Sewanee student and take in all the activities that Parents Weekend offers without being right in the middle of everything. We had a small dinner party at the Cabin and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad the cabin worked out for your Parent's Weekend. Our son graduated from Sewanee last May, so we love having Sewanee parents as guests.

Where kids and dogs can be off leash!

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cabin was perfect for my family and friends. The kitchen was well-equipped; the fire pit was fun; the canoe was awesome, and Gale helped us out with missing keys right away. Convenient to Sewanee's campus and Monteagle, near the entry of the neighborhood but still feels like the middle of the woods. Overall, a little piece of mountain paradise!

Perfect Homecoming!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cabin for our family of 5! It was my 25th reunion and the entire family came along. The sleeping options were so nice, and the cabin was clean and neat. The wooded lot felt secluded, while being close to so much happening on the Mountain. Great cabin!

Owner's Response: Glad the cabin was enjoyable for those enjoying the re-union and the others who were able to hike, swim, run, or canoe.

Love this Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the cozy cabin. My four daughters love to swim in the pool, canoe in the lake and hike the many trails in the area. Everything is present that you need to cook a meal or you can go out to eat very conveniently. It is peaceful and quiet. With the good wifi I was able to sneak a little work in while my kids napped. We highly recommend the cozy cabin.

Clifftops is a large, wooded, gated community with a private lake and swim club. Homes are on 5 acre lots. Wildlife abounds. Trails run throughout the development. The roads through Clifftops are newly paved and shady. There is very little traffic, making it a nice place to ride bicycles or scooters. The swim club, tennis courts and playground are less than half a mile from our cabin. The beautiful lake with dock, sandy beach and clear, clean water is 4 miles from the cabin. Open water swimming is allowed. Gas powered boats are forbidden. The fishing is fantastic from the dock or canoe or kayak.

The area is famous for hiking with Sewanee's 21 mile perimeter trail just 4 miles from Clifftops. Fiery Gizzzard and Cumberland State Recreation Area are also close-by. We are near the front of the development, which makes for easy commute to campus.

All Saints Chapel (breath-taking Episcopal church) and the beautiful campus of Sewanee are close-by. There you will find a coffee shop and boutique restaurants.
