“Exactly what I wanted.”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

We had a wonderful week. The cabin was beautiful and exactly as advertised. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well eqipted. The cabin was secluded on property that is just what I expect in the hills and woodlands of Tennessee. A couple of our group saw a bear on the property. Love bears! It was wonderful to go right down the road and be in the BSF. We had to choose between hiking, canoeing, and swimming every day (tough choices). At the end of the day we came back enjoyed a good meal and a soak in the hot tub. I would definitely recommend it and I will be back.

Owner's reply: Jeff Glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to having you stay with us again

“Summer trip to the BSF”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

6 of us stayed in Second Nest. It was perfect. Enough woods around us to be secluded. 2 of our group saw a bear on near the cabin. The cabin was wonderful. It was clean and had everything we needed. It was easy to get to hiking trails and to the river. The staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the trip very much and intend to come back.

Owner's reply: Thank you Jeff. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay

“Great cabin!”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2015

This was a great get-a-way for me and my wife for our anniversary. Cabin was clean and well furnished and spacious. Loved the hot tub on the deck - very private and could enjoy being out side to enjoy the wooded surroundings. Very peaceful which was great. Enjoyed the part of the deck that was covered as we had some sprinkles the first evening. Thinking seriously about bringing the family next time.

“Amazing Stay”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

It was our first time renting a cabin in the US and coming from Germany we we didn't know what to expect, we were AMAZED at our arrival! This was a luxury cabin, with so much detail and with all the amenities one could wish for. I felt like I was at a friends private home! We loved the whirlpool, the wood finish throughout the whole cabin,the kitchen, the bedrooms... we loved EVERYTHING! We cannot wait to go back and spend our whole summer there!

“Great place to stay!”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2012

Wonderful cabin - clean, nice rooms, beautifully decorated, had everything you could possibly need. Don't go looking for a hotel in this area - none to be found. Nightly rate very reasonable, pictures online do not do this cabin justice! Have never stayed in a cabin that was SO VERY clean! Owners were great to work with, easy process. Highly recommend Second Nest!

Parker City, Indiana
Your cabin is lovely, you have outdone yourself. The cabin is so lovely. We did not need for anything.

Knoxville, Tennessee
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cabin. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and watching the wildlife. Hopefully next time we can stay longer.

Canton, North Carolina
Thank you for sharing this wonderful cabin with my family. The cabin is well equipped with every amenity we would look for. The wildlife (deer) was awesome, can't wait to show off our pictures. Location is close to activities of interest but so secluded we felt like the only ones in Big South Fork. Next time we'll bring horses.

East Lansing, Michigan
