About this listing

This stone home, hand-hewn by its property owner with rock from its quarry, offers a charm that can't be beat. Sitting on 280 acres, the property is a quiet respite from city life.

The space

This Post WWII stone house was hand-hewn by its original owner who spent 10 years digging through the rocks on the property's quarry. Updated at the beginning of 2014, this working farm is within a half-day's journey to numerous Upper Cumberland attractions, trails, and waterfalls. If guests prefer access to the urban, a Nashville, Knoxville or Chattanooga trip is within one and a half hours (1.5 hours) journey. Numerous golf courses are a stone's throw as well. Guests are welcome to walk the trails on the property or cycle down Brotherton Mountain.

Address: 5380 Brotherton Mountain Road, Cookeville 38056

Guests will have access to a full kitchen with ice maker, 1950s fridge (with limited freezing space) dishwasher and spacious island. W/D available. WIFI and Dish TV.

Allergy season can be taxing on some, so if you're prone to pollen disturbances, bring Zyrtec.

Please note that we allow dogs, but we ask that you be an extremely cautious and respectful pet owner. We ask that you crate unattended animals (especially at night if they are known to roam or to chew) and that in no circumstance should your animal be left alone without supervision. We have gone to great lengths to furnish the cabin for a luxury experience, and damages can be expensive and no fun.

What a beautiful place from the land, to the history and architecture, to the decor. I felt like I was living in a magazine. It was just what I needed for a relaxing, peaceful trip. Perfect distance drive to state parks, waterfalls, and hiking trails nearby. Anna was a wonderful host and great to communicate with. I would highly recommend this place, and I will definitely be back for another visit.

Such a charming little stone house! We loved every minute of our stay at this place. The owners did an amazing job at updating it and yet keeping all the charm and originality. Beautiful.

This home was absolutely lovely. Think farmhouse meets stylish touches while maintaining it's truest identity. We came here for a business trip and it was perfect - wifi was reliable and allowed for work. Everything was provided in order for cooking of your own food - which is clutch when you have food allergies so eating out can be a pain. The freezer was frozen over (no biggie - the refig in the pictures is accurate - antiques require a bit more time and they said they tried to defrost it in-between visits), so if freezing things is a must, bring your own coolers. They have an ice machine so you will be set. I cannot wait to come back here for a personal trip and have already recommended this lovely home to 8 other people. You won't be disappointed!

The farm house is the perfect place to live life in the slow lane and to catch a little R&R. We enjoyed the place to it's full potential and loved cooking at home with the sounds of the animals in the background. Anna was attentive to our needs and all of the farm staff were friendly and accommodating. We didn't want to leave when our stay was up, and we definitely intend to be back!

Two years ago, my husband and his brother secretly bought this 280 acre farm that sits atop Brotherton Mountain in Putnam County, Tennessee. I wasn't thrilled. Don't get me wrong, the land is beautiful...really beautiful. But, seriously? Didn't we have a little too much on our plates, I argued. Oh, but there was a stone house, and a perfect little barn, and blackberry thickets, and little overgrown lakes. Fun project, right? We'd done these types of things before, right?

Fast forward to 2016, when dozens and dozens of guests have enjoyed our little farm. Now I can truly say that the farm has been a blessing, even through all the design decisions and renovations that can extend people and budgets. Enjoy, people...enjoy the wandering cows, the tire swings, the rocking chairs, the pond. You have my persistent and visionary husband and brother-in-law to thank :)
