Yellow Creek Retreat

Our History


We disassembled an 1850 vintage log house and moved it a mile and reassembled it on our 163 acre farm in middle Tn . Just 50 miles west of Nashville. We added onto it and took us two yrs to complete the project. We used all reclaimed wood on the inside . It is one of a kind and a very unique property with chestnut oak and poplar thru out the house. It is now ready for rent. It sets above a creek, with easy access. Private 163 acres of woods with bicycling and walking trails. Be one of the first to experience the history of these old handhewn logs . Enjoy our huge outdoor fire pit. We cut the wood . You light the fire!!!!

Best family vacation ever

5/5 Stayed Dec 2019Irene C.

If you want peace, quiet, no distractions and a beautiful location to enjoy uninterrupted time with your family, this is the place. Jerry and Janice created the most precious retreat for us to unwind and enjoy the quiet and solitude we needed for our Christmas retreat (the decorations were dreamy!). They were attentive and so helpful throughout our stay, and really made the trip special for us. We will be back for sure and have already shared this hidden treasure with our friends in South Florida. Jerry, you will be getting lots of calls from our friends who are looking to stay at your property! Thank you for everything. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

This is such a beautiful place and it is the perfect destination for a peaceful getaway with family and friends. Its an authentic rustic cabin with all the modern conveniences which makes the stay comfortable and easy.  Jerry & Janice are the best and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and that we got the most out of our stay.  5 Stars really doesn’t do this place justice...I would recommend Yellow Creek Retreat to anyone searching for a place to rest and recharge...

Yellow Creek Cabin Retreat...Spectacular!!!

This remarkably restored, one-of-a-kind cabin is located on one of the most breathtaking plots of land in Tennessee!!! The Crawfords have succeeded in creating a private Smokey Mountain masterpiece right here in the rolling hills of Middle TN! They are fantastic hosts who can recount in detail the history surrounding this cabin and the adjoining lands. If you like to retreat in style with all the modern day trimmings and enjoy nature in all its glory, you MUST visit this place!

Rental Cabin Retreat

5/5 Stayed Dec 2018

Jerry and Janice met us at the cabin when we first arrived. They were such gracious hosts; welcoming us with a roaring fire in the fireplace and lovely Christmas decor to complete the picture. They gave us a quick tour of the cabin and included historical detail behind the cabin's construction and what was required to relocate the cabin to its current location. We were enthralled!

Jerry took some time the next day to give us a tour of the 160+ acres of land. They made us feel right at home. My wife and I enjoyed spending the next several days in complete solitude with only the local wildlife and the beautiful scenery. The cabin is very well kept and has all the modern amenities. They spared no expense in making this an oasis!

My wife and I will be repeat customers and hope to three-peat sometime in the near future. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway to recharge, look no further!

I didn't want to leave!!!

This property and the owners met and exceeded every expectation. You can't describe how much charm this cabin offers. We had no issues during our stay but still the owners let us know that they were always ready if we needed anything. We came to visit my daughter & son in law who is stationed at Ft Campbell for Thanksgiving. This was an important visit for our family. I am so glad we chose to stay here. There were 6 of us staying a week. There was plenty of room. Everyone loved their comfortable beds. The property has everything you need. Loved seeing the turkeys and deer. We have been fortunate to share many vacations as a family. This is definitely one of our favorites. The photos don't do the cabin justice. Can't wait to return. Thank you Jerry! God bless!

Amazing location, away from the crowds and a wonderful cabin to call home

5/5 Stayed Aug 2018 Sherry B.

I booked this trip for my family that spread out over 4 generations. Jerry and his wife went above and beyond any expectation I could have imagined to make my family feel welcomed and taken care of as I was not able to accompany them on this trip. It was intended to make memories, but from the stories I heard it did much much more than that.

The cabin itself is a master piece of fine craftsmanship that can be appreciated from the outside to the inside, down to the smallest detail. The porches, the fire pit, the decorations, the landscaping, the trails to explore, the spacious accommodations were unlike anything you will ever expect. The feeling of being home while on vacation becomes a given at this magical place and you don’t want to leave. In fact, it was said that the eldest member of the generations could live out her remaining days here and would be better prepared for the glories that heaven has to offer, cause it felt like she was already in heaven by the end of the trip.

Not only was the place itself wonderful, but you get the entire package with the attentiveness of the owners. This started out as a last minute trip to end the summer, it became so much more. We will be back!
