19.3 miles from Beech Lake
This ain't your "grandpappy's farm"!
No, we offer a wide variety of experiences from the leave-me-alone-I'm-resting-and-need-my-coffee experience to the full-immersion-up-to-your-elbows-I-wanna-be-a-farmer experience to . Stillwaters Farm, in the heart of West Tennessee, offers the best of both worlds: a way to unplug, and a way to connect. So, plan a visit to rest, relax, reconnect, and rejuvenate!
We deliver what the others can't: Sweeping farm vistas, a private, end of the road location, and a minimum of 1.5 acres of wandering room--all with the convenience of being within 2.5 miles of the city limits!
Located on the leading edge of a 153 acre farm in the heart of West Tennessee, The Cottage is furnished in period antiques, full linens, full kitchen, full bath with vintage claw foot tub, and two charming bedrooms. Central heat/air, outdoor lounging area surrounded by perennial butterfly gardens, and views of pasture and farm. Private parking provided.
Guests enjoy full use of the Cottage and surrounding Cottage grounds and shopping at The Silo--our "on-farm" gift shop.
While a mere two miles outside the city limits, The Cottage lends itself to a bygone era—a time when life was slow and simple. In short, The Cottage allows our guests the opportunity to rest, relax, and participate in activities that they would otherwise never experience. At the farm, surrounded by hundreds of acres of agriculture and virgin woodland, our guests can learn about gardening, livestock, animal husbandry, crop harvesting, or any number of activities going on at the farm during their stay.
Horns and sirens, traffic and commerce are a rarity around here. Instead, guests will be bathed in the comfort sounds of the country—a donkey’s bray, a dog’s bark, a horse’s whinny, and, on occasion, our sheep’s graceful, signature baas.
Butterfly gardens, in full bloom most of the year, are just off the outdoor lounging area, so guests can expect a visit from the local hummingbirds (in season), graceful butterflies, and bumbling bees on the hunt for a load of pollen. Songbirds, deer, and turkey inhabit the woods and meadows all around. A good book and a cup of hot tea will round out a most enjoyable farm experience.
Looking for something a little more "hands on"? Guests can purchase the upgraded stay, once on-farm. This package includes one or more of the following activities, dependent upon weather conditions, guests comfort level, and season: morning feeding, hay, water; vineyard keeping; gardening; animal care and training.
WORKSHOPS are also available, priced individually. Check with us for current offerings and pricing.
We strive to provide our guests the ability to dive into daily farm activities, if desired.
For off-farm activities, we happily direct our guests to area points of interest, historical sites, restaurants, and shopping.
Farm interaction is provided at our guests' comfort level. Want to roll up your sleeves and dive right in? We would love it! Or, if you'd prefer, you can sit back, sip a cup of tea, and watch the world go by. It's all up to YOU! Bring your cameras!
Come, enjoy the peace of the country!
There is no public transportation nearby. Guests must make use of their private vehicle for off-farm activities.
