Modern Cabin By Bear Lake

Cookeville, Tennessee

At the bequest of its new owners, this soulfully modern log cabin was reassembled in 2015 by the man who purchased and moved it off a Rickman, TN property back in 1991. It offers a cozy master downstairs with queen bed, a loft area with both a double and a twin bed, two fireplace seating areas, a fully equipped and sparkling new kitchen, along with a dining area, laundry and bath facility and fire pit. We also supply a twin air mattress with linens if a sixth person would like to stay.

This property is stationed atop a hill with amazing views of Bear Lake, its beautiful, white estate home. Nestled in the wood and just outside the city of Cookeville, this Scandinavian-inspired cabin is the perfect respite.

    The cabin is beautiful and clean. The location feels secluded and remote, but is less than 10 minutes from stores, etc. The whole family wished we had booked a longer stay. The beds are ridiculously comfortable, too!

    We enjoyed our stay so much..Very serene yet you’re only a few minutes to great restaurants and convenience.. We wish it had been warmer. We were there first week in April. Pretty property. Used the fire pit on cool nights. Watched movie on smart tv. We went to Burgess Falls & Fall Creek Falks.. Beautiful drive and not very far..

    Great weekend getaway!

    We had an absolutely wonderful weekend away at this adorable cabin! It has a perfect balance of cozy cottage with all the amenities needed. Options for wood burning fires both inside and outside made it perfect for the cool evenings. Anna was quick to respond and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend this for any couple, or small group of friends to get away and enjoy!

    We had a lovely visit at Anna’s cabin. All was exactly as described and photographed in the listing. Anna was very responsive (within minutes) and so helpful! The cabin is adorable and was perfect for our little family getaway. We visited a couple of days before Thanksgiving and captured some fun pics of wild turkeys in the yard as we were packing our bags to head home. Our 7 and 9-year-old navigated the loft just fine and enjoyed climbing the ladder to bed each night. We will definitely be back!

    Everything was clean and very nice. The ONLY issue we ran into was there were no extra trash bags, paper towels, or toilet paper. It was no big deal since there is a store right down the road from us. I’m sure if I would have said something to the owner they would have solved the issue for us, but we took care of it.

    The cabin was in an excellent area. Private, quiet, and very convenient. The check-in process was seamless. Overall, the cabin was comfortable and sleeping in the loft was a nice experience. The cabin could've been a little cleaner, primarily sweeping and cleaning around baseboards. But would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Great stay

    What a beautiful retreat! The pictures don’t even do this place justice. Details at every corner make this cabin an incredible stay. The fire place at night was so romantic and warm, then waking up to the heated floors was elating ❤️! I would highly recommend this private cabin for anyone who enjoys privacy and luxury. Even the bed sheets were incredible, what a great place. The best VRBO I’ve stayed in yet! Thankful for you having us!

    We highly recommend this place! 4 women stayed here as part of our girl’s getaway. This cabin is stylish and cozy, the kitchen was new and fully stocked with equipment - we cooked a big dinner and breakfast and only had to bring the groceries. The owners stopped by to bring extra supplies and they were kind enough to build us a fire while they were there. We all want to come back!

    This cabin was clearly well loved and maintained. The woods and lake provide such a relaxing landscape, and we absolutely loved taking it all in by the firepit in the evenings and with coffee in the mornings. The cabin is so well designed and decorated and was a perfect space for adult travelers. Ann was lovely, I had a couple questions and she was quickly responsive and very helpful. I will certainly be back to this cabin, we are already planning for it (my sister is referring to it as our second home :)) Thank you for sharing this VRBO, what a beautiful space! If you are in question, book this one!

    Amazingly beautiful. Quiet and perfect stay.

    It is picturesque with lovely views. We stayedfor a week while we were househunting in the area. Couple comments- no fan in kitchen for cooking, etc. Bathtub is claw foot type- hard to get in and out of with nothing to grab and no shelf for anything- shower pressure , etc., was great but we found it a little dangerous. We would have appreciated some firewood too as the firepit is awesome but we were not prepared to bring or buy/move wood. Saw lots of deer- pretty! Final comment- we did not use the upstairs loft- but it is a steep ladder - only for adults!!! And not older folk.

    Home Sweet Home.... THIS CABIN IS A GEM!

    My husband and I had the opportunity to take another trip to the Modern Cabin by Bear Lake from February 1-9-2017, and what a wonderful time we had! We enjoyed the beautiful weather, the deer sightings, nightly fires in the fireplace, and the heated floors! Thank you Anna for your continued hospitality. We also want to thank you for helping us find a house to rent in Cookeville in preparation to our move to TN. Always, Denise & Rodney, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

    Our week-long stay in the cabin exceeded all of our expectations from the second we drove up to it. It delivered the utmost comfort, and tranquility we were searching for. It offered all the amenities we needed to make our stay wonderful. The cabin's location gave you the 'country' feel, yet very convenient to drive to surrounding cities. Thank you Anna for your hospitality. Can't wait to return for another stay soon.
