About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Bedding for 4/max 6)On 2.5 Acres W/ A Treehouse

“Rustic Retreat' - Come stay in my Cabin and feel the warmth that I have created in this special home built in 2005 by the local Mennonites. This home is 1 1/2 miles from HWY 111, located in a Log Home community called 'Cozy Cabin Retreat' on a secluded 2.5 acres. No Highway noise here, just peace and quiet and lots of stars! Whether you come for a short weekend or a longer stay, you are sure to relax and enjoy small town living and all the beauty that the Cumberland Plateau offers. One of the special features of this home is the Custom Treehouse and will provide hours of activity for the children! The front porch has a screened in porch that provides an additional outdoor dining area and rockers to rock off the stress of everyday life. Out the back door boasts an elevated large deck that will also provide additional outdoor dining and lounging and overlooks the lush hardwood forest. My home has been decorated with pieces of history that I have found from locals but also has all of the luxuries one would want.

Relaxation is priority, so we have provided high quality bedding and linens. This home has all of the modern conveniences but will take you back in time when things were simpler...

About Mary Newman

I have many years experience in the Hospitality Industry and I had the pleasure of renting my home that I currently live in, prior to moving to Tennessee full time. I enjoyed sharing my home with families that were coming to the area to enjoy family vacations together. Once moving to Tennessee full time, we longed for the opportunity to find the perfect getaway to share once again. With the help of supportive family members and friends we have made this possible. I look forward to meeting new families and sharing all that this beautiful area has to offer. Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Mary Newman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Newman chose Spencer

This area is rich in nature and small town culture. Fall Creek Falls is the backdrop for this area, which is why I fell in love with this area almost 10 years ago, and provides days of activities. Whether you choose to go on day trips every day and back to a campfire at night, or just relax indoors at Rustic Retreat, we are sure you will enjoy your stay.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are looking for a home 'off the beaten path' and far away enough from the Highways, this is it!!! Enjoy sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs reading a book or just relaxing. Watch the hummingbirds come within your reach! Make a fire outside in the fire pit in the evenings and have a glass of wine or roast a marshmallow! Enjoy taking day trips to Fall Creek Falls, Burgess Falls, Rock Island State parks and enjoy the waterfalls, hiking, swimming in the falls and have a picnic lunch. Take a trip to Chattanooga to visit the art bluff district and have a gourmet lunch or go to the aquarium.

Loved the Rustic Retreat! Great for a quiet getaway. Loved listening to the wind blow through the trees while enjoying our time on the front porch and back deck. We will be back! 😃

Indeed cozy, peaceful and outstandingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

It was a surprise to find ourselves immediately "at home" in this really cozy cabin. It was the cleanest place I've stayed in (I'm and admitted clean freak) and the welcome book gave every detail we needed. But the owner went above it all with a personal call to ensure we were settled. Very thoughtful and welcoming touch. The view off the elevated back balcony is stunning: birds, stars, trees as far as the eye could see.... a real nature get-away. And check out Fall Creek Falls just 17 miles away. Incredible beauty. We'll be back! Thank you so much.

Perfect romantic getaway in the Tennessee mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I spent spring break at the Rustic Retreat. We needed some relaxing peace and quiet away from it all, and we found it! The cabin was very clean and welcoming. We felt at home immediately. The fireplace is a nice touch. Although it was just the 2 of us, the cabin is spacious enough for a family of 4 or 5. We had everything we needed. The fresh eggs from Mary's hens as well as Mary' homemade preserves made for a delicious addition to our breakfasts. We enjoyed the surrounding area as well: Visited Ruby Falls in Chattanooga; hiked a few of the trails in Fall Creek Falls State Park; and enjoyed a bit of antiquing in the nearby towns. I would not hesitate recommending the Rustic Retreat to friends and family. We plan on returning in the future!

Nice clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a good location away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trap vacation spots in Tennessee yet close to great places like Falls Creek Falls. We enjoyed just riding through the country side as well as a trip to McMinnville and across the Walden Mountain to the beautiful small town of Dayton. My wife and her sister were able to sniff out a thrift store in both places.

The cabin is real nice and well maintained. Excellent people to deal with. If I ever need a place to stay again in this area it will be this place.
