We came to this magical place to found a self-reliant, intentional
eco-community when I retired from corporate life in 2006. It's called the Village on Sewanee Creek, named after the creek 800 feet
below the bluff where we are located. There are now a dozen
homesteads here and a small thriving community.
I traveled the world as a senior executive for Baskin-Robbins, Dunkin' Donuts, Papa Johns, Blockbuster, 7-Eleven and other retail franchises, making the world safe for Pizza, Ice Cream, Pancakes Video Rentals and American convenience. And I was ready for something more fufilling. I scouted for a place of exquisite natural beauty and I found it here. I bought way too much land just before the real estate bust and learned how to turn a nice fortune into a very small one.
I faced challenges and had lots of fun. Now I want to share our experience. It's
the Village 2.0 for guests. Who knows, you may decide to stay. Or not. Life in the city is OK as long as you can get away frequently.
I'm convinced if you love nature and the outdoors, this is the best place to celebrate it.

Miller’s Point Lookout
The site was wonderful! We got in right at sunset, and it was stunning to see the light set behind the mountains through the trees.
Our hosts were wonderful and kind, and once they left us, we truly felt secluded and private.
Will soon be returning for more!

Overall I liked this site. The tent was clean and comfortable. The waterfall was nearby exactly as described providing a nice attribute to the peaceful setting. The campfire and cooking situation is very adequate if you enjoy creative cooking. South Cumberland State Park is nearby and offers great hiking, etc. Very minimal road noise can be heard. Slight criticism of the site, understanding that this is glamping not camping, is the solution for water is only passable; gallon bottles &/or Brita water filter dispenser positioned over the sink. The shower access/workings was not 100% (though the host was aware and planned to address it). A nearby property had outdoor dogs that barked into the evening.

On the Beech Treehouse
Very unique and authentic experience. We loved the private waterfall and repurposed shower. Sleepy under the beech tree was amazing.

Amazing location and very relaxing. The area is really beautiful and the short hike down to the waterfall is really fun. We spent a lot of our time just taking in nature on our stay. Grant was super helpful and even brought us firewood upon request. The site not 100% private and may have other campers / hikers near by, but everyone keeps to themselves while enjoying the views.
I would definitely stay here again!
