As you step across the threshold of Weekender Retreat, you will be transported back in time, when life was more simple and quiet. This cozy little place offers a chance to rest and observe a common 1930's construction style seen in numerous Brown County log cabins. Summer is an especially lovely time to visit the Weekender, as pink rambler roses climb over the split rail fence out front. The cute front door gives a hint of the authentic and rustic ambiance you'll experience during your visit. Perfectly sized for two to four, the cabin features 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, and 1 bath with a corner shower.
In the living room you'll find a sofa (which converts to a queen-size bed) a loveseat, and a comfortable wooden rocker. A fireplace outfitted with gas logs means you won't have to put on your coat to carry in an armload of firewood...just flip the switch, and you'll have a great fire going in seconds. Satellite TV and a stereo will provide options for indoor entertainment while you're here, plus there's a collection of board games to play with, too.
The kitchen is equipped with all the trappings for preparing a meal...an arched brick alcove provides an interesting home for the electric range; and an adjoining dining area with nice big windows is a lightfilled spot for savoring an omelet or pancakes. If the weather allows, there's a nice black patio table and chairs on the back deck...conveniently located near the charcoal grill. As you go down the steps to the yard level, you'll see that Weekender Cabin also has an attractive little campfire pit. Just beyond the campfire pit is a pond stocked with fish. The owners have thoughtfully supplied the fishes' favorite kibble that you are welcome to cast upon the water...then just watch how the little fishies come to gobble it up. Another item of outdoor interest is a large concrete table. With its accompanying net, it is unofficially dubbed the “Barney Rubble Ping-Pong Table.”
Lots of knotty pine paneling, cabinetry, wood floors, and some wood ceilings await you in this quaint little cabin and make you feel right at home. Colorful woven rugs add a cheerful note, as do the touches of red found through out.
If you want to pop into town for some shopping or other social activities, you're within a short 10-minute drive to Nashville. Less than 10 minutes away is Helmsburg...a tiny village that is proud to offer the Fig Tree Gallery & Coffee Shop; as well as the Helmsburg General Store...tiny, but packed full of all sorts of vacation necessities, such as bait, beer, sodas, and bread. Bean Blossom is just minutes away, too...where you'll find a grocery, an antiques shop, and a veterinarian's clinic, among other things.
Should there be a need for more lodging for extended family or friends during your getaway, the owners of Weekender Retreat also offer another similar, but larger, cabin fairly close-by, called Serenity Log Cabin.
