Welcome to Whippoorwill Woods!
We are blessed to have you come and enjoy this gracious part of creation. Nature can ‘teach you the unforced rhythms of grace’ as our welcome sign states. Whippoorwill Woods is 3.8 miles North of Nashville.

Upon entering Whippoorwill Lane a majestic view of Brown County Greets you. The woods on the lane are intimate and dense so that you might wonder where the cabin is but at the top of the drive, the world opens up to reveal a secluded cabin and one of the two reported highest views of Brown County. The cantilevered deck looks out onto vast ridges of trees and a 2/3 acre pond.

On a clear day you can see the tower at the south entrance of the Brown County State Park which is about five miles as the crow flies. In the fall, as you take a relaxing dip in the hot tub, you have one of the best private vistas to be enjoyed in this part of the world. A well-marked mile-long trail past the tree house, around the blue gill stocked pond and down to the confluence of the streams connects on the top of the west side of the property to the Yellowwood trail system which then leads back up to the path in the front of the cabin.

The cabin was built in 1979 by George Woods. Its design is simple and beautiful, artistically using poplar, maple, hickory, oak and cedar wood. The spiral stairway was the first addition to the cabin after we bought it in 1992 as we had young children at the time.

On the first floor the windows are large which brings the woods and vistas into the living space. The windows on the second floor are awash in summer green and fall yellow. The living space is cozy with a woodstove and comfortable seating.

The kitchen is simple yet very convenient. Dining and sleeping arrangements allow room for 4 guests. This includes a double foldout couch on the first floor plus a double bed and two beds on the second floor loft in two separate sleeping areas. The second floor is an open concept of sleeping areas (see photos) with an A-frame roof and railing that overlooks the living space.

Whippoorwill Woods is a cabin and woods that have been enjoyed by over several hundred people in the years that have owned it. This gracious place is perfect for a variety of occasions including; intimate anniversaries, fall getaways, Seder meals, work, school, and simple, beautiful personal retreats. Blessings and welcome to all.

This cabin has usable water supplied by the lake well. The water is safe, tested and filtered, but, it is not "city water". You might want to bring some drinking water with you if you do not like the taste of well water.

All our cabins have a 3 night minimum for Major Holidays.

The place would have been perfect to bring our son, as we would’ve loved it with us. it was secluded, had a great atmosphere, had recommendations for what trails to go on and details about them, the directions were easy to maneuver. The host had additional soap, conditioner and shampoo in the bathroom for us, as well as popcorn and hot cocoa. They were nice additions on top of everything else. Couldn’t have been happier. We followed the directions in the book as they were different from the email, but everything mostly matched up to what we were supposed to do when we check out.

First of all, we would like to thank you for providing us a great cabin to stay in last weekend. It was a great few days for us to just relax and enjoy each other. The past year has been hard for us. She was diagnosed with breast cancer so with the surgeries, appointments and radiation it’s been stressful. It was truly the first time in a long time that I’ve seen her relaxed, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. Really the only complaint would be a bigger TV.

My son and his wife stayed here for a short honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The view is amazing, the trails were so fun and the team was super communicative with directions for late check-in and to the location.

We stayed Monday and Tuesday, cooked meals at the cabin, which the grill was a welcome addition for. The location was amazing and the deck was lovely to enjoy the view from. Loved the large windows while you were inside as well to enjoy the views.

Difficult to find if checking in at night. We really enjoyed the seclusion. If stairs are a challenge this may not be for you due to tight spiral staircase. However, we loved it and hope to come back soon. Great place!

Great cabin and very secluded location. Rustic but with many modern amenities. Huge back deck with great views. Hot tub was broken down but it was communicated early. Would recommend!

The view is amazing. We loved how quiet and private the cabin was. Less than 10 minutes away from town, but still so private. I wish we could have stayed longer. The outdoor set up was amazing. Plenty of seats and things to do. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend
