Black Oak Refuge was built with recycled/reused materials, sweat, and love. I've always envisioned it as a place for friends to gather, so there are a few sleeping options--a platform treehouse, tent pad, and hammock area. Among the wooded property there is also an outdoor kitchen, platform deck, and composting toilet. Dogs are very welcome! I keep a few dog essentials in the treehouse and a poop-bag dispenser on the outhouse. All shapes, sizes, and breeds are welcome with responsible owners.

BOR is an excellent base to explore the Cumberland Plateau--less than an hour from Falls Creek Falls State Park and the Obed National Wild and Scenic River. Only 25min from Cumberland Mountain State Park and the Head of Sequatchie River. If you love the outdoors, there is plenty to explore! In Crossville, you'll find some small-town gems like Grinders Cafe, the Pour House Bistro, and the historic Cumberland County Playhouse.

Black Oak is adjacent to my other property with two tiny cabins, but they won't be used when guests are in town. Guests are welcome to get water from the well next to the cabins and to let their dogs enjoy the fenced-in area. Both properties share a trail down to a seasonal creek.

The road is narrow and can get muddy but is passable year-round even in a car. Only one neighbor is visible from the property and is separated by a privacy fence and treeline. There is no cell-service or wifi at the property--great for sharing good conversations!

I've never quite stayed at a place like Victoria's before. She's built the Refuge with her own two hands and you can feel the care she's built into the place! So many thoughtful touches throughout the property. Opening up that treehouse door in the morning, listening to the creek running nearby (be sure to take the trail down to the creek!) it was such a restful place to stay. Very clean, so peaceful, and so many lovely state and national parks nearby to explore. Would definitely stay here again!
