pot point cabin


Pot Point Cabin was originally constructed in 1835 of hand-hewn logs and planks reclaimed from a flat boat that wrecked on the "Boiling Pot," a nearby rapid in the Tennessee River.

History of the Cabin

Pot Point Cabin was originally constructed in 1835 of hand-hewn logs and planks reclaimed from a flat boat that wrecked on the "Boiling Pot," a nearby rapid in the Tennessee River.

The Tennessee River Gorge Trust purchased the cabin and surrounding land in 1991 and renovations were underway by 1993. The original section of the cabin, the two main rooms on the lower level, the dogtrot, and the shell of the second level, were left untouched during the renovation. An extension of the lower level including a large meeting room, modern kitchen and handicap accessible restroom was added along with two decks which overlook the Tennessee River.

Rentals

The Trust has contracted with Lookout Mountain Vacation Rentals to manage the booking of Pot Point Cabin. To book the cabin, visit their website or call (657) 777-2899.
