You’ll find inspiration all around you to write that favorite poem or get started on the novel you’ve always wanted to write when you stay at the Writer’s Retreat Cottage in Spring City, TN. Just steps from gorgeous Watts Bar Lake, this Tennessee waterfront cabin nestled in a rustic setting and crafted of chinked pine wood will make you feel like you are in hidden in the forest itself. Imagine sitting on the covered deck that looks out over the majestic scenic lake, or in the living room with its cathedral ceilings in front of a crackling fire in the lovely stone fireplace.

A private dock and pier is your private destination for swimming or fishing. Your cabin rental is secluded in the woods, but you can still get cell service. However, there is no WIFI or television. If those are important, bring you own mobile hot spot. With so much quiet and nature to enjoy, this vacation home will nudge you to slow down and listen to the that artistic inner voice within.

The open concept kitchen has a large island, refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, pantry, items, dishes, utensils, and washer/dryer. The dining room table seats four.

Sleeping Arrangements: Bedroom 1 has a queen bed; Bedroom 2 has 2 queen beds; Bedroom 3 - living room with futon.

Unique Features

Pack a picnic lunch and explore the lake on the free pedal boat that comes with the cottage. Take your morning coffee out for a stroll along the boardwalk down to your private pier, or sit in the swing on the porch and watch the sun setting.

Things To Do

Don’t forget to bring your fishing tackle with you because Watts Bar Lake on the Tennessee River is known for its terrific largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing. You can fish from the pier or the rental’s pedal boat. Bring your own boat and launch at the Rhea Springs Recreational Area or the Terrace View Marina. You can also rent pontoon boats at the marina for full or half days.

Just 30 miles away is the Cumberland Mountain State Park located on the Cumberland Plateau. You can rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and fishing boats with electric trolling motors at the park to use on Byrd Lake. Fish year-round for catfish, bass, and bluegill. A large Olympic-sized pool is open for swimming Memorial Day through Labor Day. Six different hiking trails ranging from easy to difficult offer many options to explore the woods and mountains. Golfers will love shooting a round at the Bear Trace Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus.
