Things to do during "cabin time" in Monterey
Monterey TN cabins in Putnam County The motto of Monterey, Tennessee explains its scenic location as, “Where the hilltops kiss the sky.” Your Monterey cabin rental, located in eastern Putnam County, places you on the western edge of the Cumberland Plateau with equal distances of 90 miles between Nashville and Knoxville. Short enough drives to be in the city or in the mountains in no time at all from your Cumberland Plateau vacation home getaway.
While you are exploring these spectacular mountains, be sure and stop in at the Monterey Depot Museum where you’ll learn about trains and the history of the area’s first inhabitants. Children will delight in seeing the large model railroad and full-sized vintage caboose and railcar. After your visit, take the whole family to the playground and pirate ship at Whitaker Park for more family fun.
Just a short distance from your central Tennessee cabin rental is the small Amish community of Muddy Pond. Shop at the Muddy Pond General Store for homemade jams and jellies, mouth-watering baked goods, unique kitchen accessories, hand-made wooden furniture and those famous Amish-made quilts. There is a leather shop next door that will even do custom-orders. Be sure and take cash with you because you can’t use credit or debit cards.
Bee Rock Overlook is one of the most popular short drives/hikes you’ll want to take from the comfort and serenity of your Cumberland Plateau vacation rental. Just a short 0.7-mile trail, it is accessible year-round and you may see wild flowers during the spring. Amazing views await you and you can even bring your dog with you on the hike. If you are looking for hiking to waterfalls, horseback riding trails, or UTV trails, then head over to the Belle Ridge Trails. The outdoor recreational opportunities in the area are boundless.
