The Cabin at Muggs Pond

Built in 1975 and remodeled in 2006, The Cabin at Muggs Pond offers the perfect amount of mountain seclusion just 10 minutes (and three stop signs) away from The University of the South and St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School campuses. Full of rustic charm and eclectic flare, The Cabin also comes equipped with all the modern necessities and features you need during a weekend getaway or an extended vacation.

Step outside The Cabin’s back door to easily access a 1¾ mile trail perfect for walking, running or biking. Take the short walk down to Muggs Pond for plenty of fishing, canoeing and swimming. Enjoy morning cups of coffee or evening cocktails on The Cabin’s covered back porch. Grill up delicious dinners on The Cabin’s large side deck, complete with built-in bench seating.

The Cabin's great room includes a beautiful stained-glass window and large mountain stone fireplace, fully stocked with firewood for cold winter nights. Each of the bedrooms on the main level has its own 1/2 bath (toilet and sink) and shares a tub shower with an adjoining bedroom. The Cabin’s original full bath is also located on the main level, off of the kitchen. Walk up the spiral staircase to reach The Cabin’s loft bedroom, which has a cozy sitting area/den adjacent to it ideal for reading books, watching movies or playing board games with friends.

Excellent for any occasion (Myers Point, a favorite venue for Sewanee weddings and receptions; is only 1/4 mile away!), The Cabin is sure to make your trip to the mountain one to remember.

Check-in time is 3:00 pm. Check-out time is 11:00 am.

Secluded Log Cabin Near The University of the South

The house was exactly as described! Great location and lay out and very well supplied!

  • 5 of 5

We particularly liked the Jack and Jill bathrooms as we had a big group staying there to attend a wedding nearby. Bill was very attentive to our needs. It was nice having the two outdoor areas to relax in and there was plenty of room inside to spread out. We were there for a week and never ran out of supplies. It was very well outfitted with what our needs were. We would definitely stay there again!

Secluded cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Took a group of 8 men to the area to hike Fiery Gizzard as well as other trails. Found this cabin and it was perfect. The cabin and linens were clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Will definitely come back for our next trip.
