About this listing
SPRING SPECIAL! We're a seven night rental but very flexible.Long term rentals available. Drop us a line to introduce yourselves. Nestled in the woods of West TN, this log cabin, with wraparound deck and screened porch, is a perfect getaway for nature lovers. Wake to a medley of birdsong, the fragrance of deep woods and breathtaking views of Indian Lake. For stargazers, come nightfall the sky's the limit!
Just steps out the front door, down our winding trail, lies beautiful 132-acre Indian Lake, home to fish, bald eagles, blue heron, turtles, frogs, ducks and other animals. Bring your binoculars, camera, sketch pad or journal. We are located in a quiet, private, gated community with paved roads, great for a morning walk or afternoon stroll. Deer and wild turkey can often be seen on the grounds.
Guests can make themselves at home with access to two bedrooms, bath with tub and shower, the porches, the yard, kitchen privileges and Mother Nature.
Interaction with guests
The owners are generally off property while guests are visiting but are always happy to offer information on getting around the area.
Indian Lake is a quiet, private, gated community nestled half way between Memphis and Nashville. Though it's worlds away from city life, it's just 10 minutes from the new 1000 acre Carroll County Recreation Lake, 20 minutes to the The Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center and Hal Holbrook Theatre in Huntingdon, and 20 minutes to historical Bailey's Crossroads. Jackson is a leisurely 30 minutes southwest and Amish farms, with fresh produce in season, dot the hillsides.
Tennessee is renowned for its natural beauty and West Tennessee is no exception. There are seven state parks within about an hour's drive--a nice day trip--of Easy Street. From hiking and fishing to Native American and Civil War history, these parks have a little something for the adventurer in you: Big Cypress State Park, Paris Landing State Park, Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park, Chickasaw State Park, Pinson Mounds State Park, Natchez Trace State Park, and Mousetail Landing State Park. Even beautiful Pickwick Landing State Park (known for it's famous Tennessee River catfish tales) is only an hour and a half's drive from Easy Street. So what are you waiting for? Pack your hiking shoes, your binoculars, and your fishing pole and book a date with us!
There is private off road parking on the property but the garage is reserved for the owners.
