A beautiful farm passed on to us by our folks. We love to share it because we see it with new eyes when we show it to you. Large farm with walking trails, horses, dogs, chickens and a million fireflies in June! Come spend a night in the country! We have an organic garden world class salads you can create from fruits and vegetables. Good cell reception here. Pet fee $25 per pet. Great hikes, picnic areas, dogs to pet, bluegrass music sometimes, 2.5 miles from Burgess Falls, 12 min to Walmart.  We offer multiple cabins for rent, a lodge, or camp sites (both tent and RV spots available). Please read listing descriptions, as each listing is unique.  Guests love staying here: "I came up to Sparta, Tennessee to heal my lungs from the Red Tide. I definitely healed up well at Dan’s cabin in Sparta!! I loved writing music on my cabin porch looking at beautiful green hills with mini ponies roaming around!! The trails on the property were awesome! And at night i loved picking on the guitar with Dan and his family! They were so kind and real genuine people! I highly recommend this hip camp, he has multiple cabins, all unique and special! Plus its close to so many amazing state parks, waterfalls, and swimming holes!!!"

Camping on the Farm!
We loved the location in the woods/fields, so the kids could explore. They also loved petting all of the animals and collecting eggs!

Nature camping and privacy!
Hidden gym in the Tennessee country side. Close proximity to Virgin Falls hike. Privacy and great sounds of nature galore. The land has been in the owners family for many years. Suitable for truck camping or roof top tents. Lots of space and options for your set up.

Beautiful Land!
We actually stayed @ the garden house also listed on this property because this one wasn’t available and I’m glad we did! It was beautiful and had everything one could need in terms of cooking/sleeping/showering. We loved the fire pit, the views and their dog, Martin. Dan and Jo were very welcoming and respectful. The garden house is very private, yet still a part of the ‘commune.’ We will definitely be back. Thank you!

Absolute perfection!!!! Dan is a top notch, super nice host. He was very welcoming, helpful and friendly! He was nice enough to invite me to listen to music with them, but also understood that I was there for alone time and graciously allowed that. The place is a dream! It’s literally everything I had hoped and more! Perfectly private and serene. They provide everything you could possibly need. The bed was comfortable and the tiny overhead fan was awesome! I was shocked at how well it worked! My dog absolutely loved it, too! We live in a neighborhood, so getting to run free in the creek and the woods was awesome for him! I have a personal rule to never visit the same place twice. This will be the exception!

Paradise!
This place far exceeded my expectations! It was like a little piece of Heaven on Earth. The beauty of the farm, the rolling hills, the babbling creek, the animals, the friendly people, the tranquility - it restored my soul. All that and I haven’t even told you about the cabin yet.

Fun times at the Hawk's Nest!
Staying at the Hawk's Nest was so much fun! The kids had a blast, especially in the creek, and watching the little horses in the pasture. This was a great family adventure!

We had a lovely stay at the Hawk’s Nest! It was an adorable space and was very peaceful & relaxing. We loved getting to star gaze, watch the sunset & listen to the babbling creek and crickets at night. The campsite came with everything we needed to make pancakes in the morning & we even had one of the farm dogs Martin join us for breakfast. We would definitely love to come back!

Nice place
This is a beautiful tiny-house cabin that sure beats camping. We loved the property and playing with the dogs too. My only suggestion is that the windows need to be fixed so that it can get fresh air.

Peaceful. Quite. Private. Beautiful
This was such an awesome retreat. We loved all the special touches put into the place. We had everything we needed and more. We greatly appreciated the firewood and cooking supplies that was available. Martin, the the farm pup, was a really fun addition making sure we were settled in that first night and making occasional visits during our stay. We enjoyed the coyote songs at night and views of the mini horses during the day. The peppermint tea Jo recommended was great. We had a really relaxing time and are already planning our next trip back!

A six out of five stars!
We loved staying at Hawk’s Nest. The little creek flowing below the cabin, the woods, the sweet horses, the singing of the coyotes at night: PURE MAGIC. Dan and Jo, our hosts, could not have been more gracious or kind.

Very clean, very peaceful place to spend the weekend! The cabin was filled with unique decor and was very welcoming. The screened-in porch made for a beautiful setting for evening meals and morning coffee!

Hawk's Nest
This place is very peaceful and in a great location. I was able to get to Burgess falls and rock island very easily. The hosts have a list of all local places which rocked because I had minimal service. The hosts were very nice and the property was adorable. They have friendly horses and friendly dogs that will come and hang with you during your stay. There are a few things that are different then the pictures and some things that are not mentioned. There is no speaker in the bedroom for music. There is no countertop propane grill. There is a shower added next to the bathroom but I doubt you could use it as a shower it barely runs but was perfect for rinsing off after long hikes! There are only candles and small hanging lights so I recommend bringing a lantern and a flashlight as it is dark walking to the bathroom at night 😆 some cool stuff not mentioned is that it has solar so there are USB ports to charge your phones! There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom and it rocks. There is free firewood on the property! There are pots and pans so you can cook using a propane stove top next to the fire pit! They even have marshmallow forks so you can roast marshmallows! They have three dogs and Bonnie was my favorite. I do everything solo which gets lonely so it was nice to have a loyal doggy hanging with me. She was precious. They have a boy dog (I can't remember his name) and he will rearrange your shoes, well anything, he is very puppy like 🤣 he will also flip the trash so be aware 😆 overall I highly recommend checking this place out, it was a great time and a great glamping experience.

A place to heal
The Hawk’s Nest was a perfect place of healing for me and my husband after a recent family loss. While quiet and private, it also gave us the opportunity to sit with our hosts and other guests for some music in the evening for as long as the mood suited. The screened-in porch bedroom included plenty of blankets to keep us cosy and we enjoyed percolator coffee over a gas fire in the morning. Lots of mooing cows and love and protection from our hosts’ extremely smart dogs. It was just what we needed.

What an amazing place! The cabin was perfect- super clean, comfortable, and in a beautiful setting. The dogs took us on a walk around the farm, and we settled right in. I only regret that we were driving through on a long road trip, so we didn't get to stay for a few days and explore the way we would've liked. This is a truly fantastic stay.

Glamping in style….it was PERFECT!
Leading up to our trip I kept reciting one of the reviews I had read before booking my reservation with Dan at the Hawk’s Nest, and the review basically said they felt more less like it was too good for it to ‘get out’ to the mainstream. And they were right. It was absolutely wonderful. It was everything and more we were looking to feel and experience. We event lucked up the morning of checkout to beautiful sounds of rain! It was the perfect temperature too might I add! Dan & his lovely wife Jo will definitely be getting another visit from Ronnie & I. And we’ll be bringing the guitar too 😊 it’s the place to be!!!!!!!

Hawks Nest was such a peaceful place to stay. Unfortunately we only got to stay one night, but had the best time. The farm is beautiful and we enjoyed walking around to visit the cows and down to the creek. The cabin had everything we needed and was so cozy. We especially loved sitting at the bar and looking out! The dogs were also very sweet, they made great company.

The perfect hip camp - Hawk's Nest is 10/10. Dan was an incredible host. They have super cute English shepherds too that will walk around with you throughout the property - also an incredible place. Agreed with the other reviews saying they want to keep this place a secret.

Wonderful Farm Land
Dan and his wife were so friendly and considerate! As soon as we showed up they made sure we had everything we needed and gathered us some wood for a fire. The site is on their property but is so private and secluded! There is so much space and the animals are incredible friendly!! We had some ponies and a cow spend quite a bit of time with us. I would highly recommend this place for anybody who is a lover of nature and animals!

Cozy & Comfy
WOW!! We sat on our screened in porch and read while it rained, while our dog enjoyed the fenced in yard to watch the cow. It was incredibly clean, very cozy, and with lots of thoughtful touches. The fire was even prepped and ready when we arrived! It was very warm and cozy, so we made sure to stay all the way until the late checkout of noon. We loved visiting all the animals, and Dan was a very friendly and helpful host. Would definitely recommend anyone and everyone to stay here. What a fabulous place!! It’s like staying on a farm with the comforts of home...plus a king size bed!

What a perfect and beautiful getaway! We loved our stay! Dan and his wife we gracious hosts and the Hawk’s nest was just the perfect mix of what we needed to recharge, be immersed in nature and still have some of the finer things, like a bed and toilet but also a hammock to lay and watch the stars :) we will definitely be back❤️
