Life is a Hoot Log Cabin - in the southern part of Brown County, one of our most beautiful areas.

As you get out of your car, you feel like you are in Brown County State Park with all of the trees and wildlife galore.

As you decline the wooden walkway, you enter into the truly authentic log cabin. The wood interior is unmatched.

First room to the left, is the full bath that has a tub/shower combination. The master bedroom is the the right with a comfy queen bed.

On into the cabin is the fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances and dishes to make a feast. The kitchen is an open concept idea that opens into the small, but quaint living room with big screen TV that you can enjoy any of the programming you have with the smart TV and wifi in the cabin. There is only antennae television otherwise. Small living room is at the base of the stairs, which you ascend and find the second bedroom with 2 queen beds.

There is a nice full length covered deck overlooking the woods behind. Keep an eye out for the deer and the turkeys and the hoo-hoo-hooot Owls.

All our cabins have a 3 night minimum for Major Holidays. Dog friendly cabins require 75.00 nonrefundable fee.

Close to Brown County State Park for the horseback riding, fishing, swimming, and hiking.

"Airbnb Review #638357101448907158 #154422"

Would definitely reccommend this house and especially this host. We've stayed with this rental company before and have had an extremely positive experience. Their places are always clean, check-in and out could not be easier and they are a great value for the money. This house was no exception! It's a little remote, so be prepared to drive to nearby restaurants/attractions, but if you're looking for a quaint, quiet and cozy spot to get away from the noise...this is the place! Would defintiely stay again.

We had a lovely stay!! Unfortunately the power went out for about 12 hours or so, but that's what you gamble with when going to a cabin with a forecast of storms! No fault of the rental owners. 🙂

Our stay was great! We are repeat customers, we have counted at least 7 trips with Hills O Brown and this was the BEST!
A shout out to the fact there were no strong detergent odors on the linens and in the cabin.
The fall decorations were great. Nicely done everyone!

The decor was cute and the added Fall/Halloween decorations made the place feel cozy. It is a small cabin so seating is limited. The bedrooms are not private, so while the cabin sleeps 4 people, it's probably best suited to a small family or a couple. Having two couples or just friends stay together might get awkward. While we enjoyed our stay, there were things we were unhappy and/or disappointed with. Namely, the cabin wasn't as clean as I would have expected it to be, especially with a cleaning fee of $190. I know full well how much work goes into cleaning cabins and rentals (I've done it professionally), so I understand there are usually hefty cleaning fees. I often have to check my own sometimes-too-high standards, but this cabin just wasn't as clean as it should have been. It was way too dusty with lots of cobwebs in obvious places. The bedding didn't feel very clean (and wasn't typical bedding we've seen in rentals - these were faded and felt used) and the bathroom smelled very moldy. The back porch is amazing though! The location is nice too. Not super close to anything, but that was one reason we liked it. Plus, that way you get a beautiful drive through the hills to get wherever you're going! Check-in was at the rental office instead of keyless as were used to, but that isn't necessarily a negative-just something to be aware of.

Great little cabin in the woods!!

"New Review"

Hello! Our stay was excellent. You could have ordered less humid and hot temperatures for us though! The cabin was a little over crowded with beds but that’s understandable as the owners would like to maximize the number of guests possible. Otherwise, the cabin was perfect for us. Especially loved the covered deck overlooking the woods. It allowed us to set outside with our dogs and not have to worry about them getting into trouble in the woods.
Would definitely consider staying at this location again.

We had such a lovely visit to the cabin. It was so comfortable, well furnished and clean. It was pet-friendly and there was plenty of space for the dogs be safe and have room to roam around. The full kitchen was very functional and the beds were cozy. I was thankful for wifi and TV.

The cabin was very nice and clean! I appreciated the emails confirming the registrations and payments and information on what is provided and what we needed to bring. Although I have rented several cabins from you in the past and they have all been a very good experience. We plan on trying to come back later this year. Thank you!

The cabin was perfect. It is so incredibly cute. I stayed for the weekend and it was so rejuvenating. It was the best weekend I’ve had for a long time. The check-in process is super straightforward. I am so happy with my stay. The cabin is nice and secluded while the nearby town is active and adorable. We definitely plan to return.

The most perfect cottage and location, it was exactly as described and more. It is romantic, peaceful and quaint and we will definitely be returning for our anniversary. Thank you!

This cabin was seruously seclused! Quiet and peaceful. Perfect for our honeymoon. Be sure to being coffee and snacks with you, venturing into town is about 30 minutes away on a long tedious mountain road. Beautiful scenery. Did i say secluded? Lovely stay!

The perfect little weekend getaway just a short drive from downtown Nashville. Patty’s place was even cuter and cozier than the pictures, this cabin was a treat!
