Our Guesthouse is a lovingly restored antique log cabin dating back to the early 1800’s. It sits on the highest point of the Cavender Creek Vineyards property, just steps from the Winery/Tasting Room, and overlooking the vineyard.
The cabin was moved to our site in 2006 from Rogersville, Tennessee, which was settled in 1775 by Joseph Rogers, grandfather of Davy Crockett. After the cabin was disassembled, the logs were loaded onto a flatbed truck and delivered to our vineyard property. Proprietor Raymond Castleberry reconstructed the cabin and supervised the rebuilding of the roof system, porches, etc. and finish work.
The Guesthouse has two bedrooms, each with a full bath. The upstairs room can be self-contained as there are outside steps to it, as well as the inside stairs. It also has its own fireplace. The downstairs bedroom opens onto a private porch, and adjoins the handicap-accessible bathroom. The front room is the kitchen, dining space and sitting area around the big stone fireplace.
There are three porches – one off each of the three main rooms. Each bedroom has a king size bed, and a futon in the living area can sleep two. The number of Guests is limited to 6 total, including children.
While the intent was to maintain the primitive original structure, the new, improved version has all the modern amenities such as running water, electricity, and even zoned central heat and cooling. Along with the charm of the antique logs and finishes, you will find the Guesthouse very comfortable and, we hope, relaxing.
