Located on over 400 acres of protected natural lands on the banks of the Tennessee River, the Pot Point Cabin was originally built in 1835. The cabin was constructed from hand-hewn logs and planks reclaimed from flat boats wrecked on the “Boiling Pot” rapid on the Tennessee River.
In 1993, renovations were made to the original cabin that included a great room with floor to ceiling windows that provide a scenic view of the Tennessee river, an upstairs bathroom with shower, a downstairs wheelchair accessible bathroom, and a small but serviceable kitchen. There are two decks overlooking the river.
Across the road up the driveway a bit and to the left, this cabin even has its own Self-Guided Nature Trail. It is a moderately strenuous, 3.5 mile loop trail featuring some steep climbs and reaching over 1,000 feet in altitude around Azalea Point. Along with the recreational experience, hikers will be able to enjoy the rich biodiversity that is found in the Tennessee River Gorge.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
• Primary responsible renter must be at least 25 years old.
• Maximum occupancy of 10 people at all times.
• Water at Pot Point is well water and is considered non-potable (Not drinkable). We do however provide a 5 gallon cooler of potable (drinkable) water for our guests. We also recommend that you bring your own drinking water. This property is on a well and sometimes with over use of water the well pump may not keep up and may take several hours to refill the tank. Please use water sparingly.
• This property is about 12 miles from downtown, but sometimes feels further because of the slow, narrow, winding river road. The view is fantastic however, and provides a wonderful way to slow down from hectic daily life!
• Log cabins have the tendency to leak when it rains very hard. Every effort is made to avoid this but we have thus far been unable to avoid it.
• We require a photo of your ID and a photo of yourself as well as your signature on our rental agreement to complete your reservation. Even if you make your reservation through AirBnB, HomeAway, etc (instead of directly on our website), we require this.
• We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We love guests of all types as long as they pay for the use of the property and take good care of that property during their stay.
