Peaceful healing property. We do organic gardening and have animals that you can visit with as well. I have a sculpture studio that you can come check out. We've been living off the grid for over 30 years. Come visit us and learn about our way of life! Enjoy complete privacy in a cozy forest retreat hut in a beautiful hollow in Middle Tennessee. Accommodates 2. Pretty steep 200 yd uphill hike to hut. Perfect for relationship getaway, spiritual retreat, or writing - planning intensive. Nationally-known spelunking (Indian Grave Point Cave) within 1/2 mile. 3 miles from Center Hill Lake. Hiking trails. Experience our alternative lifestyle with owner built solar log home, organic gardens and sculpture studio. Guests must arrive before dark to ensure finding correct address (GPS errs a last moment) and to facilitate hike up to hut. Potable water, trash disposal, and a toilet are available on site. Pets are permitted, as well as campfires (outside of burn bans). Guests love staying here: "Wow! This place is amazing, beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, and super cozy on cold nights. I can not recommend this place enough. William is a gracious host. He made sure I had enough wood for the wood stove and spring water to drink. If you are anywhere close and want a totally unique experience check this place out."

Our favorite get away!
William and his family have created and shared a magical place! This is our second visit and we are already planning our next! The cabin is cozy and the views are amazing! You don't even need to leave the property for beautiful hiking trails. I highly recommend this little piece of heaven in the woods.

This place was a wonderful little get away. If solitude is what you are looking for, this is your place. It was an easy drive to get to and there is flat parking. Pack light! The hike up is pretty dang steep. The cabin is amazing and well sealed which was amazing to me because most I have stayed in have big holes in them. There are two adorable beagles on the property and two friendly goats. There was plenty of firewood and the views were awesome! I felt safe here and very comfortable and can't wait to come back!

William was such a kind, welcoming host and the cabin itself is adorable and cozy. It was the perfect rustic, outdoorsy experience without being too far outside of Nashville. Great for a little getaway weekend.

This is an absolutely lovely getaway if you're looking to reconnect with nature for a bit. William was a very welcoming host ensuring we had everything we needed for the stay. The logging road and trail make for perfect wandering, we will definitely be returning!

Amazing as always!
William was a great host as always! I took my girlfriend and daughters up to the cabin for a weekend and they absolutely loved it. William was kind enough to help drive some of the packs up the hill for us which really helped out. He also checked on us daily via text to make sure we had enough firewood and our stay was enjoyable. This time, we traveled down the road to Smithville and found a really nice park for the girls to play at for a while which they loved. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our get away and can't wait to go back again for a 4th time.

Relaxing get away!
Amazing secluded and private property away from any distractions, so that you can focus and relax. It is definitely a steep hike to the cabin location so bring your boots. William was very nice and went out of his way to accommodate us. Must check out the cave.

William was a gracious host. We had a peaceful rest for one night in the woods. I can't wait to go back and spend more time. Truly a spiritual place made with love.

Well this place is great! Wow. The cabin is small, but really thoughtfully made and was exactly what I was looking for as a getaway, to get my Walden Pond vibes goin'. There are some good trails around the well tended property with lots of cool wildlife, plants, and fungi to see. Lugging my stuff up to the cabin definitely had me winded, which I counted as a plus, but I could see how some people wouldn't. If you want car camping, this ain't it, but it's not a day hike either. If you're looking to get out in nature and away from civilization (but not too far) this spot is perfect! I hope to come back.

A glimpse of a life to live
The Hideout was a great getaway, I only wish that we had more time to spend. William’s land is beautiful and wishes to be explored. William was so welcoming and kind. He took the time to tell us his story and the story of his work. I am truly grateful that Ambrosha and I were so fortunate to spend our time there.

The hut William built is fantastic! It is peaceful, serene and comfortable - and tons of wildlife. Would highly recommend for a weekend (or longer) getaway! Had so much fun building a fire at night and listening to the sounds of nature.

I loved staying at The Beech Hollow Hideout! The entire property is beautiful, well cared for, and serene -- the perfect getaway from Nashville or place to rest along the way. William was a great communicator and his directions to the property were clear and easy to follow. Hands down the best view from a toilet I've ever had.

Heaven on Earth
If you’re looking for heaven on Earth, it’s here. William and Sharon are gems of humans. I have never felt more at home or more at peace than when I hiked up to this beautiful cabin and breathed in the fresh air. My dog and I adventured, bird watched, read books and made Indian food over a roaring campfire. The loft was breezy and comfortable and the cabin was cosy and had everything you could ever need. The next day William showed me his workshop and his AMAZING galley full of his sculptures. He’s an absolute genius guys. Don’t forget to give all the pets to Wren and Rocket because they’re precious angels. Thank you again for having us William. We will be back soon.

A magical place! Rocket the dog showed us the way to the camp. The woods form a protective canopy and cool summer haven. Relax in the hammock with a book from the little library inside. Cook over the grill and fire ring. (Was too hot out for the wood stove.) Unforgettable!

Camping on an awesome homestead!
Holy cow! What a peaceful and thoughtfully prepared oasis to hang your hat. William is an excellent host that will more than meet your expectations of hospitality. This little off grid cabin is a pretty steep hike up so plan accordingly. If you’re looking to unplug, this is the spot. Not too hot, not too cool. Absolutely stunning opportunities for forest bathing.

William was a lovely and warm host. The hollow he and his family live in is private and beautiful. The Hideout was also very peaceful. The sweet breeze that blew through was icing on the cake. Their dogs are also very cute.
