Picturesque log house on top of a hill. Hand-hewn wood interior. Gorgeous view of lake in winter. Wrap around porch with rockers. Secluded privacy in the woods. Sorry, no pets.


The hand-hewn Log House overlooks Lake Gratitude. Two large bedrooms with private full bathrooms are upstairs. Two bedrooms (each with queen bed; a single can be added to Rm#3) are downstairs. Living room and Kitchen/Dining room are downstairs. Gorgeous old-time wraparound porch with rockers.

ADVISORY: The Log House is a quaint and charming cabin located in the woods . It is right in the smack one of the most bio-diverse areas in the U.S. and NATURE HAPPENS. That means creepy crawlies and timid country mice are bound to get in from time to time. The majority of people are intrigued and gracious to our non-human visitors, but some suburban and city folk are freaked out. If you are one of the latter group then please find accommodations elsewhere. Small (and very timid) mice are usually residents in summer and winter. Please keep food in containers or cupboards, or you may find you have less food in the morning, We love our wildlife and hope you will be delighted with our resident critters as well. Please call if there is a problem.

The location of this listing was absolutely spectacular and the obvious highlight of our stay! Cell phone coverage is very limited, and the internet hotspot worked fine for our mobile devices if no more than 3 of 4 people were using it, but beyond that you should expect and secluded retreat in the gorgeous Tennessee hills. There is plenty of space for large groups of 8 or 10 and the kitchen is modestly outfitted for meal preparation (we brought everything we'd need, just in case, so we can't speak to the details of the furnishings at too great a length.) The wrap-around porch provides a lovely area to sit and enjoy your surroundings with your travel companions, and the property provides some opportunity to explore in the woods. The location is an easy drive to a nearby Kroger, liquor store and cafe; and Franklin is just a bit farther but not at all inconvenient. It is worth noting that the water has a high sulfur content with a potent odor. More detailed feedback has been shared with the host on this topic, but we would advise confirming whether or not this has been addressed before booking should you feel that you may be sensitive to this.

Great secluded location. About 7 min to Leipers Fork and 15-20 to downtown Franklin. A great place to get away if you're looking for some piece and quiet. Beautiful property. Would be a great place for a large family stay.

This is a nice house that can accommodate a large group. The location is great for running and cycling.

Risposta di Jonathan:
Yup, both Big East Fork Road and the adjacent Natchez Trace National park offer wonderful places to cycle and run. When you return, ask the Harpeth Valley Bicycling club about their biweekly outings.

Loved staying at Jonathan's place. Peaceful and relaxing! Quite a rural area - be prepared for spotty wifi and cell service. Totally worth it, though!

Risposta di Jonathan:
The Buddha House does have satellite wifi. It's not good for streaming video, but should have worked well for texting, Internet browsing, and email. Glad you thought it was worth it! enjoyed having you! Excellent cell service is available just down the road by the Nachez Trace Bridge. Most folks do just fine.

The cabin in the woods was perfect for our group of 9. Jonathan's team was nice and accommodating. It was a log cabin, so we knew what to expect and we had a blast walking the nearby trails. We enjoyed the lack of television for a couple days and spending time with each other.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have a television and DVD player that we could have brought you if you did want to see some movies.

The house was spacious and the beds were super comfy. It was a perfect setting for our family reunion over Thanksgiving weekend. The front slope was perfect for our family football game and the porch is very inviting. However, considering the cost, we were surprised that there were virtually no pots, pans, or bowls, limited silverware and no toaster. There was not enough toilet paper, no paper towels, and 1 dollop of dish soap. This is not like staying in someone's home. You will have more amenities in a hotel. Plus, it's remote location means you can't just run to the store or get a quick bite. This is not what we have come to expect from the Airbnb community. Beware before you book of the myriad additional charges. The charming features that sold us on this cabin; the fireplace, the hiking trails and the lake can only be used if you pay the host an additional fee. The "Retreat" he owns costs $10 per person every day you want to use it. In fairness to Jonathan, he did make an extra effort to provide us with things needed to cook meals, but seemed unconcerned with the rodent droppings on the bed and in closets and the major leak in the bathroom. When booking, we did chat about me cooking Thanksgiving dinner for all of us, so checking in at 7:30 pm and finding the bare-bones of a kitchen was unsettling.

Risposta di Jonathan:
Thank you so much for your feedback Carla. Please allow me to address your comments. While you were here, I was actually quite dismayed about the problems you encountered that are now outlined in your review. I was shocked when you indicated that there were issues with cleanliness and that you didn't have adequate supplies. I have a staff upon which I rely and they are to do a thorough walk-through prior to guests arriving. Perhaps the holiday weekend distracted them from their responsibilities. Regarding cooking supplies, I have had many people rent the unit over these last four years and have never had anyone complain so I was completely unaware that this might be an issue. Further, I have not had any guests prepare an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner so had no notion of the expansive cooking supplies needed to execute it. Finally regarding the leak, I don't understand how you might believe that I was unconcerned as upon learning of it, I immediately had a maintenance person there to fix the issue. Again, I thank you for your feedback, Jonathan

We stayed at the Log House for 4 days during a training in the area. We had everything we needed and deeply appreciated the serenity of the surroundings. Jonathan checked in with us to see if we were all set. I can't say enough about the beauty of this area and how peaceful everyone felt during their stay.

We are the proud owners of Big East Fork Retreat, embedded in 1200 acres of pristine valley and ridge which creates the protected watershed at the head of Big East Fork Creek. It is located 30 minutes west of Nashville and 10 minutes north of Franklin.

We have been working on the retreat for several years and enjoy entertaining people passing through or staying for a week or two.

I am a physician and my partner is as well.

Looking forward to your stay!
