We didn’t mean for it to happen but Moonshine Hill Inn has become our home. We have decided to pause the bookings for an unknown period of time and live on the property here at Moonshine Hill.
When we purchased Moonshine Hill Inn 3 years ago, our intention was to continue sharing this beautiful property with the public as a rental home. We love Laguna Beach but had a strong desire to come to the south. After one visit to Moonshine Hill, we knew we had found a special place and decided to continue to live in California and visit Tennessee occasionally. Each time we returned to Laguna, we felt we were leaving our home behind.
We don’t know when we will open the bookings back up, but for now we will just enjoy our new retired life in the South. We hope to see you around Leiper’s Fork and Franklin.
We’re not certain what the future holds (is anyone?), but we are planning some additional projects and renovations for Moonshine Hill. You won’t find us on vrbo any longer, but we invite you to check back in on our website www.moonshinehill.com.
We hope our paths cross again. We are so grateful to all the guests who have visited us over the years.
In the meantime, here are a couple of recommendations for rentals near here:

Charming anniversary getaway. The property boosts a nice Big Green Egg smoker and it does a wonderful job and is fun to use. We brought pork chops and chick and cook it all in one evening as we sat around one of two fire pits that are nearby. The night sky, if clear, lends itself to a beautiful display of stars from the upper fire pit. We plan on going back at some point to relive the wonderful moments we spent there this past weekend.
Heaven on earth. Aloha All I can say is this is / was the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in and I have been around the world twice and stayed in many rentals.nI had my 52 birthday dinner in the music room and wow what a treat that was to have a dinner in an old card music room. My guest were VIPs in Nashville and they enjoyed the house and grounds very much.
Absolutely beautiful! This place is amazing! It is truly rustic chic! The descriptions and pictures provided, do not do it justice. One of the most relaxing places that I have ever stayed! This is good for a girls weekend, which is what we did- or a small family get together. The hosts and details provided leave no questions unanswered- I highly, highly recommend! We will be coming back next year!!
Beautiful home away from home. My husband and I spent the last part of our honeymoon at Moonshine Hill and loved every minute of it! I loved the main cabin and how beautifully it was decorated, the bed was so comfortable! We both took naps on the property by the pond and ate lunch overlooking the pond and treehouse.
I'm crying as we drive away!! What a magnificent trip!! Beautiful property, beautiful facility.....everything we needed right on site! Perfect scenery after a long day of junkin at the City Farmhouse show! So excited, we've already booked for next year! Very magical indeed!!
Storybook charm with Tennessee-style luxury My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at Moonshine Hill and had a wonderful time. The property itself is feels like something out of Walt Disney's imagination with rolling hills of green grass and hangout areas that feel intentionally built to match the landscape. Nature provides a continuous hum of sounds, from the hill above and pond below. It's so relaxing that we chose to enjoy the peace of the property rather than explore the near by town.
What a lovely property! We held our parent's 50th wedding anniversary family gathering at Moonshine Hill, and it was perfect. The kids enjoyed the property (treehouse, pond, etc.) while the adults were cozy sitting around the fire in the huge fireplace in the main cabin. What a delightful, homey place, enjoyed it thoroughly!
Moonshine Hill is our home away from home. We have told all our friends and family about this luxurious country escape and our tensions melt away every time we’re coming up the drive.
