The South Cumberland region of Tennessee is an amazing wonderland of nature, beauty and fun. We call it the ‘Mountains of Adventure’.

There are over 85 miles of trails and 30,000 acres of the largest park in Tennessee – the South Cumberland State Park. Visitors come from across the country and the globe to hike, climb, explore, swim under waterfalls and visit historic sites from timber and coal mining days.

Recently, a visitor told me that he was in a store and someone just looked at him and said Hello. He was amazed! People don’t do that where he was from. He had never experienced the Southern hospitality that we are so blessed with. His family had made a special trip to our area specifically to see Southern hospitality and the folks here gave them a great dose.

In our region, there is a 1300+ acre off-roading park at the Coalmont OHV Park, a weekly concert venue at The Caverns , a large annual music festival Bonaroo, zipline at Bigfoot Adventures, clay shoots and bird hunts at Baggenstoss Farms, and so much more.

There are great places to eat and plenty of short-term-rentals to stay in.

There are museums including the Grundy County Heritage Center, Palmer Miner’s Museum, and the Sam Werner WWII museum. Beersheba Springs is a National Historic District with over 25 sites on the National Historic Registry. There are many other historic sites throughout the area, including the Manor 1885 which is available for rent on our site.

As we began restoring the building that is now Greeter Falls Lodge, we realized that running short-term-rentals successfully is not a simple task. As we setup the systems for our own properties, we did so in a manner that we could expand into helping other owners with their properties. In 2022, we did so and have now taken on a limited number of clients.

South Cumberland Getaways is a small business with family values. Let us help you find the perfect place for your next getaway.
