Anam Cara is a charming cottage tucked away on one and a half acres in the Historic Village of Rugby. The name translates into "soul friendship" and garners an atmosphere for weekend retreats, a writers getaway or may serve as a cozy weekend gathering spot for friends. It borders protected lands and the Big South Fork National Park, is easy walking distance to the Clear Fork and White Oak Rivers, as well as the Village of Rugby and provides peaceful, gorgeous views of the mountains.

The space
We discovered this home in the quiet village of Rugby when visiting some friends that live here. It has a unique charm that we will not be able to enjoy year round because our jobs are not in Rugby. We named it 'Anam Cara' to reflect the friendships we hold so dear to our hearts, our desire to foster kindness, creativity and cultural bridges in our everyday journey with known and yet to be known.

****IT'S REMOTE! You'll want to bring in your groceries and your libations. There is a cafe and general mercantile....but you should plan to bring what you need and enjoy!****

Rugby, Tennessee, United States

The Village of Rugby:
The Victorian Village of Rugby was founded as a Utopian community in 1880 by British author and social reformer, Thomas Hughes. It is a rich historic community nestled between Big South Fork National Recreation Area and the Rugby State Natural Area. Non-profit Historic Rugby was founded in 1966 to restore and preserve the village. The village houses a visitor centre and theatre, hosts various weekend arts/crafts/antique festivities, walking tours of the historic buildings and provides lovely meals at The Harrow Road Cafe.
