Reconnect with nature at this unforgettable escape in the Emerald Eyes Tiny House. Purchased from a Mennonite builder as a shell, now owned by an artist and award-winning interior designer, and her husband a craftsman who has finished the 300 sq. foot space to be both functional, beautiful, and serene. Allowing for a relaxing and revitalizing stay.

The farm is nearly 30 acres for a true nature experience. Unplug and disconnect from daily stresses and enjoy relaxation.

The space
The owners who live onsite believe in repurposing, recycling, and upcycling to support the sustainable lifestyle they long to create. You’ll see elements throughout the home and property.

We left the typical life of 9-5 and meaningless work to live a dream and pursue a more natural lifestyle and hope you enjoy the mountain and hiding in the hills as much we do.

Emerald Eyes at Futurology Farms is for the passionate person who wants to connect with nature, the adventurer who loves to explore the beauty of the land, couples who wish to reconnect, and those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

We require a short-term rental agreement, and liability waiver signed before entering through the gates.

The house manual will detail and outline everything you need to enjoy the mountain and your stay.


Despite the 30-acre farm being in its early stages of development, it is a serene and magical place perched atop a mountain on a cliffside overlooking the Cumberland River in Tennessee. The farm provides an ever-changing view- including glorious hillside meadows, mysterious dense forests, and mystical thick fogs.

The property will be in development for many years with a long list of features to be added. The farm is in its infancy stage and it's not uncommon to see felled trees or areas undergoing change. With 30 acres, there is much to do and lots to see.

It’s not uncommon to see deep rich fog engulf the valley or glistening mountain tops sparkle in the sunlight. The view from the point is different every time you visit.

The unit has a 2-burner electric cooktop, griddle, kettle for coffee or tea, and a toaster.

A fire extinguisher is also on the premises and a hard-wired battery backup smoke detector.


Our aim at the farm is to provide a safe nurturing sustainable lifestyle model. We do not have Wi-Fi at Emerald Eyes Tiny house. There is Wi-Fi available on the farm for short intervals or emergency needs. It's a remote destination cell service is unreliable.

We hope you leave the digital life behind during your stay and simply enjoy all that the mountain has to offer while decompressing and recharging. We encourage you to use your phone for pictures and selfies but leave the digital space and reconnect with nature and your partner.

The firepits at the Emerald Eyes Unit and the point are for your use and firewood for several fires will be provided along with our signature fire starters to ensure a great start and fire every time!

The property location is perfect for the adventurous soul looking to explore the river, state parks, waterfalls, and the beautiful countryside.


We've included some basics to help ease with the hustle of travel. You'll find pancake mix, syrup, and butter, pasta and sauce, salsa and chips, farm-fresh eggs and bread, grab-and-go snacks, and bottled water. And a treat for the campfire. We wanted you to be able to not have to worry about running out to the grocery store right away. This way you'll have everything you need to make a meal for dinner when you arrive and breakfast for a couple of days.


Nature has much to offer during your stay whether hiking and traversing the grounds or exploring the beauty of the river with water activities and fishing. You’ll find a wide selection of state parks with hiking and waterfalls to investigate. Kayaks and canoes can be rented just a few miles away with an entry at the location.

The property is on a mountain and has areas that are nearly 1000 feet in elevation with rugged terrain and steep drop-offs. For this reason, we do not feel the property is suited for infants and children. Additionally, nature is active at the farm with snakes, turkeys, raccoons, bobcats, coyotes, and other local wildlife.

This is a natural environment and that comes with things like ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, bugs, and stink bugs. We take every precaution possible and provide bug spray for the outdoors but you should be aware and dress appropriately.

This property has steep but passable roadways. Most vehicles can navigate fine. A small 4-cylinder vehicle may struggle in wet weather or snow and ice conditions. Generally, they are fine.

The Emerald Eyes Tiny House is designed to accommodate 2 guests and only registered guests will be permitted. Any violations of the 2-guest rule will be asked to vacate the property immediately without a refund.

Emerald Eyes is located about 15 minutes from the Jackson County seat of Gainesboro along the Cumberland River. Detailed instruction to find this hidden gem will be provided upon confirmed booking.
