    Over all the cabin and property was very nice. I think my only criticism is that you can hear the traffic on the main road or interstate, but other than that it was a good stay. Something that would be helpful would be exiting paper so we would know what to do before we left...ie: wash dishes, placement of dirty towels and sheets, etc

    Cabin was cozy, perfect for 2 people, and well appointed. The hosts were next door and perfectly present when needed, but otherwise unobtrusive. Proximity to great hiking, marvelous fireplace, and a great loft all make this historic spot a gem.

    The Foust cabin was perfect. It had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook our meals, the bed was comfortable, and the space was super cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace, which was my favorite part of the whole experience. Robin and Rob are great hosts and they made sure we had everything we needed. They gave us great tips on places to visit and other things we could do during out short stay. I would love to come back next year.

    My partner and I were looking for some healing peace and quiet and we found it in spades. The cabin was absolutely perfect, we couldn't have found anything better. Bob and Robin have done an amazing job keeping the rustic charm while also offering a lot of modern amenities. I have never felt so at home at a vacation rental property. The cabin is conveniently located between the city and some great state parks. Next time we will stay longer!

    We were charmed by the warmth of our welcome and of the cabin. It was perfect for a romantic and restful retreat. Just what we were looking to do - get away from the noise of the city. There was hiking and a paved walk within 5 minutes of our stay. Due to COVID-19, we did not eat out or enjoy many of the local offerings, but enjoyed cooking ourselves. Thank you, Robin and Robert, for making out stay so wonderful.

    We had a nice stay and the property owners were very nice.. however there is a camera in driveway and on porch so we didn't feel like there was much privacy and the front of the cabin faces the front of their house so we felt as though we were being watched every time we came and went. It just didn't state that anywhere when we booked.

    My wife and I had a great time staying at the cabin. We spent the days going to the 3 local state parks, Museum of Appalachia, and Cades Cove in the Great Smokies. We also enjoyed Clinch River Brewery near Norris Lake Dam State Park. The Appalachian Arts and Craft Center across the street is a good place to look for a gift or locally made souvenir. The owners of the cabin were very nice, helpful and informative. The cabin was a very relaxing place to chill out at night.

    We stayed at the Foust Cabin for six nights while we did some hiking on the local trails. The cabin was a unique experience given its history, while also being comfortable and well-equipped. Robert and Robin were very helpful and responsive in making sure we had what we needed to maximize our enjoyment of the cabin, such as bringing us plenty of wood so we could use the gorgeous fireplace. They were also a great source of information about the local area and helped us identify some hiking experiences that we wouldn't have known about. We would definitely recommend the Foust Cabin to others.

    The cabin was exactly how advertised. Modern ammedities but keeping the1800's charm.

    It was a great time relaxing and unwinding in this marvelous 1860 era cabin. Located near the interstate and main roads, but far away from noise car or anything else. The owners were so kind and ready to help with anything. Everything that is described and many more in there. Cozy, clean, and all the necessary amenities for cooking or even watching TV, Netflix, or just listening music in the background. A fantastic experience that we will definitely want to go back.

    This cabin is fantastic!! Beautiful, private setting with so much charm and character! The cabin is well appointed with many conveniences. The living room is very welcoming with a large stone fireplace and comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped. The cozy loft bedroom has a king sized bed that overlooks the living area below. The front porch has rockers and a swing with cushions. We highly recommend this cabin. This cabin is CLEAN and well kept!! It is also very easy to find even though when you’re there...you feel like you were away from everything. There are restaurants, gas stations, and attractions close by as well.

    What a gem! My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful long fall weekend here, and it was exactly what we needed to get away from our stressful city lives. Cozy, SO comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. We spent our days out hiking and then coming back to sit in the porch swing, and our nights cuddled up in front of the fireplace. Bob, the owner, let us know how to get in touch if we needed anything (and he showed up with extra firewood just when we needed it) but otherwise we were left to ourselves. We dream of coming back, as soon as we can. If what you are looking for is a quiet, cozy getaway away from it all, this is it.

    What a wonderful small cabin in the woods. It was a balm to stay here and build a fire in the fireplace at night. Robert and Robin are wonderful hosts, attentive and not intrusive. I loved sleeping in the comfy king bed in the loft at night after I banked the fire, with the residual heat rising up, lying cocooned in the feather comforter and soft blankets and with plenty of pillows, listening to the coals crackling, enjoying the absolute peace of the night. One night there was rain on the roof—so cozy. This place is a gem.

    This was our second time of staying at Foust Cabin. After our first stay, we looked forward to the next. Now we wait another year for vacation and plan for our return next fall. It is a beautiful cabin, quiet location and a good jumping off point for many interesting things to see and do. This was also our second time attending the Tennessee Fall Homecoming music and heritage festival, which we really enjoyed.
