Standout Fishing Cabins...
Rustic Elegance!

The enchanting little fishing cabins featured here come from the wooded foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee . . . and the banks of a majestic lake in the northwest corner of Montana.  Evoking the romance and charm of an earlier era, they appear to have jumped from the pages of a storybook and sprung to life!

Pictured at right is Tadpole Cottage, one  of  five cabins comprising Toad Hall, a rustic compound in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee . . .

Built from antique timbers, the cabins at Toad Hall -- including the archi-
tectural jewel pictured below -- are a combination of rugged and refined.

Designed by Atlanta architect Jack Davis,  the main house,  as well as
the cabins,  utilize a variety of ma-
terials in their construction,  includ-
ing  chinking,  shingles,  stone  and
tin.   Pictured in the background of
the pastoral scene  at  right  is  an-
other one of the charming cabins in
the compound.

Walls and ceilings of salvaged wood and a rustic stone fireplace offset the sophistication of the great room’s furnishings and art in the main house.

The inviting porch overlooks a pond and two of the enchanting cabins on the property.

Montana Fishing Cabin

The cozy fishing cabin pictured  at
right and below sits on the wooded shoreline   of   Montana's  Flathead
 --  the  largest natural fresh-
water  lake  in  the western part of
the  contiguous  United States.   A
one   room  hideaway  of  just  300
square feet, it celebrates authentic camp living.

With its primitive charms, pictured below, the interior has been designed to maximize use of its limited amount of space. Not a square inch is wasted. A mini-refrigerator and shelves make up the kitchen area.    A bed covered in old Swiss Army blankets and Navajo rugs serves as the bedroom.    A table and captain’s chairs out on the porch act as the dining room.  A weathered armoire provides storage space.

Off one end of the cabin is a "cook tent" made of log posts  and  Plexi-
glass, shown at right and below.

The ambiance and charm of this tiny fishing retreat is undeniable. According to the owner, “Even people you wouldn’t think would respond to it want to be there washing the dishes and heating the water and all that.” Summing it up, she goes on to say,  “Every man, including my husband, who walks in says, ‘What more do you need?’ ”
