A Fabulous View


Look at that picture above..... It's Serenity Falls --taken from inside our little cabin where we stayed this past week. (Sorry that it is crooked. I was standing at an angle.)

Can you imagine sitting inside of the cabin in a comfy chair --just listening to and looking at that beautiful waterfall??? For waterfall lovers like George and me, this cabin is PERFECT for us!!!!





Here's a picture of our cabin from the side of the waterfall. You can see the big picture window (shown in the first picture) from the outside.





George took this picture of me ---standing on the deck, taking pictures of Serenity Falls.




Here's the cabin from the front. You can see Serenty Falls in the distance. Isn't this a cute little cabin????





George stands outside near the swing and picnic table. Serenity Falls is behind him to the right, and the cabin is on the left.





The cabin is small (2 bedrooms and 1 bath)---but it will sleep six (if someone sleeps on the sleeper sofa). The living/dining/kitchen are all in the same room. This is looking toward the kitchen.




I love the way the little cabin is decorated.. There were several quilts for use in the cabin. This is the middle bedroom--where George and I slept.




This is the 2nd bedroom. Both beds are queen-sized.




This is the living room area ---looking toward the back porch. A gas fireplace and a flat-screened TV is located to the right of this photo.




I took this picture on the back porch. This is a fabulous place to sit and read or SLEEP---or just listen to the sound of the waterfall.




Here's one last picture of Serenity Falls.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures from our little cabin in Cosby, TN.

Have a great Saturday!
Hugs,

'Serenity' is a good name for the falls :)

"Serenity' perfect description.
I could live permanently in that little cabin....."What a ripping little house this is, everything so handy "....Wind in the Willows.
Thanks for the lovely view.

It is a very nice cabin and you can not beat the location. Your photos are wonderful and the waterfalls is beautiful. Do you rent this cabin for a week or days at a time?

bettyl said...

What a perfect place for you--or anyone--to stay!

Diane AZ said...

That cabin is just as cute and cozy as can be and the view of Serenity Falls from inside is amazing. I remember your post last year and I'm glad you and George went there again.

Arkansas Patti said...

That cabin has the best view ever. Spring thaw could be a bit scary but you timed it perfectly.
That view is awesome. Can see why you return.

Meems said...

Perfect, Betsy. Serenity is such an appropriate name. I can just imagine how sweet it was to sit by that fire or on that back porch (that's where I would have been glued). Just beautiful.

Daisy said...

What a fantastic little retreat, Betsy! It is so beautiful and peaceful looking there. I would get there and never want to leave, I think! Hope you and George have a wonderful weekend!

Di said...

Betsy, it looks like George's birthday celebration was quite a success. Wonderful spot, cute cabin and what a setting it was.

That last photo however, is a WOW! Stunning... simply beautiful... a great, great shot.

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

What a GREAT-looking cabin; the location is superb! I'm looking up Cosby, TN to see how far it is from where we live.

Sandra said...

Perfection Personified! I love it, Betsy. I am jealous and want to stay in it. that is a million dollar view from the window and i was trying to figure out how you got that view until I scrolled down and saw it is sitting in the creek. You did a super job showing it to us. love the pic of you and your new camera

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

I found your cabin on the Internet. According to Google maps, the cabin is 634 miles or an 11-hour drive from our house. I bookmarked the website!

Pedaling said...

2 happy people at a most beautiful little quaint cabin.
looks like relaxing fun!

love the quote up top of your page here, too.

Thistlebrooms said...

It's an absolute Beautiful and Tranquil looking place with a Great place to have a wonderful lunch on the deck.

Thanks for the Beautiful Photo's Betsy...

My Best~Marilyn

June said...

Betsy!!!
As I opened your blog I was wondering if I could/should ask you your opinion of Cosby. As I do...I've been trawling for houses in TN, and one, in Cosby, really grabbed me. I guess you'd recommend Cosby then?

IZZAT CABIN FOR SALE? I could live THERE! :-)

Tabor said...

This is one of those very magical places for a brief vacation! Glad you could enjoy it.

Beth said...

Oh, Betsy, I am completely smitten with that enchanting little cabin! You and George have a real knack for finding magical vacation places. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Connie said...

I remember this from earlier pictures you've posted. You've been so many places and shared so many pictures of the gorgeous places you've been. I hope someday to use your blog as a travel guide.

Blissitydoodah said...

I want the phone number so I can rent this sometime soon! I can just see my boys playing in and around that water! (myself, actually LOL!)

steph said...

Amazing view!! The waterfall is beautiful!

What a nice advertisment for this darling cabin! I want to stay there and enjoy that view.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Now I really want to pack my bags and head out there.Both Jake and I were oohing and aahing over these pictures.I think we may be a little jealous. :-)
I'm just glad you are sharing this beauty with us.Have a great day and take lots of pictures.

Glenda said...

I can hear the sound of the falls if I listen closely!! The place does indeed fit its name! Beautiful pics, as always!! Have a good weekend!

Cicero Sings said...

Oh, oh, oh! I wanna go there. Lucky you. You find the best spots you two. I'm so glad that you are enjoying life to the hilt.

Cheryl said...

Betsy, this is the most darling cabin! What a perfect spot for you and George to visit and stay in. I could move right in! I am so very happy that you two found such a magical spot!

Ginny said...

I love the last picture! Also the front of the cabin with the falls at the very end. But what an enjoyable post with the inside! Who would ever know what the inside looks like; what a surprise!! It's charming! The kitchen is colorful and a bit retro looking. I guess you could never live closer to a waterfall than right there"!

Big Dude said...

A fabulous view indeed.

mothernaturesgarden said...

I remember this one from a previous post because of the window. It's as beautiful as ever.

Suzie Button said...

This is my first visit to your blog, and oh, my, what a visual treat! I would sit looking out that window or on the deck just for days on end! How gorgeous! Suzie

Jayne said...

I can easily see why it is one of your favorite places. :c)

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Betsy: That is such a neat place, thanks for the virtual tour.

Diane said...

Those are beautiful falls. Especially in the last picture it looks like there's just cascade after cascade after cascade after cascade.......Cute little cabin. Just the right size and it still looks like it has all the comforts of home. Diane

Busy Bee Suz said...

This is just the sweetest little cabin ever. I could sit on that porch alllll day long!

JKoenig said...

What a neat place to stay....The cabin, so rustic looking from the outside and homey on the inside...Doesn't look like "roughing it" at all.

I can see why you love it there!

Mountain Thyme said...

Betsy, how could you dare to leave? Oh, I know. To get ready for the next exploration, eh?

I am just noticing by your blog that I have lived away from "back east" for so many years that the kind of flora and fauna that you picture seems a little odd to me anymore. Strange, isn't it?

imac said...

Heaven Betsy.
What a wonderful place to stay.

√ Abraham said...

I could live there without any problems or regrets. Wow. It is beautiful.

Mary said...

Gorgeous view! What a wonderful looking place and of course I love the quilts!

LV said...

Am too old to be adopted by your and George?

Pam said...

I think that cabin was built with you and George in mind, Betsy. It is wonderful and it has everything you need including a waterfall at your feet :)

Catherine said...

Oh my ~ that's a view that you don't get every day. How wonderful. You and George are just having so much fun and enjoying each other's company aren't you? You two are adorable! xo Catherine

Carol said...

How lovely! Well, I live in Cosby but have no idea where this it....can you tell me directions from exit 440 on I-40?

Wendy said...

I love the decor too. It's tasteful and colourful. And funful (haha - just made that word up). LOL!

What a nice place for a get-away! Those falls must sing you to sleep at night, and serenade you during the day - perfect!

You and George look happy. I'm glad you shared your pics with us.
Hugs

The Retired One said...

What an AWESOME little cabin..thanks for posting these pix.
I wondered though..what do they do in the spring run off when the water is high? Don't the owners worry about the river washing the cabin away?????

I would love to know the address and rates if you get the chance sometime to send me the info..maybe on one of our trips down to Florida we will take a detour and go there!!!!

Dar said...

What a charming little cabin, and the view is just breath-taking. Out my cabin window, the falls is back further but in spring when the water rushes, it's wonderful to sit with the window open or on the deck in the sunshine and just listen to the water. You truly had a perfect spot to stay. Beautiful.
BlessYouandGeorge

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

Betsy, these photos look like photos seen in a magazine...they're wonderful!!! I love that waterfall!!!
If you use Picasa to edit your photos you can straighten them, it is very simple. It's listed under basic fixes.

Small City Scenes said...

Oh Betsy that is one of the most serene waterfalls I have seen. Beautiful! And to see it right outside from the cabin--WooHoo!!
I could live in a cabin just like that.

You both are all smiles so I know you all had a grand time. MB

Pam said...

That view of the waterfall outside your window is fantastic!

FIONA said...

You and George found the PERFECT place to get away.

Thank you for sharing your lovely photos. I can almost hear the falls.

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Oh my gosh, Betsy....who wouldn't love to OWN that cabin with that view and the sound of the water..oh yes, I could live with that!

I made a joke to Thomas a while back that we should create a water garden and put in a waterfall...hahaha

Well...one can dream, right! We looked a few properties that had really done that and they were beautiful....the real thing would be better!

Glad y'all had a great little getaway.

Oh, and you and me both want the "Pinky Bird". It's just precious!

Have a great day,
Stephanie ♥

Rose said...

Yep, that cabin is a winner...I love that you showed the quilts on the beds! Quilts always make a place feel like a home for me. And love those white cabinets in the kitchen area. And the waterfalls are beautiful.

Denise said...

I love that little cabin!!!! I could live in that all year round.

Cedar ... said...

I absolutely love that cabin and the whole setting. I'd love to stay there, but doubt that it will happen. I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip there.

SquirrelQueen said...

Love that cabin and the gorgeous view of the falls. It must be heavenly to be so close to the waterfalls.

The inside of the cabin is adorable, a perfect little getaway place for two.

Betsy, the last photo of the falls is fantastic.

We were gone most of the weekend so I'm getting caught up with everyone a little late.

happily retired gal said...

What a MAGNIFICENT 'get away' place with lovely views. Thanks so much for sharing ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

I may have to try and get this cabin for us sometime (Serenity Falls cabin). WOW! What a gem of a find!!!
