High Forest Den is a home away from home in the heart of Hohenwald, TN highlighting activities you may have in that spare room, basement, she shed, or an old school 'Den'. It's a place to disconnect from the cell phone and wifi to reconnect with yourself and friends in a fun setting.

We'll have wifi for those that absolutely need it for an hourly or all day rate in case you find The Den is perfect for your laptop or remote work.

Items for sale in our boutique corner will be artisan and locally grown or made so if you have a product, please contact us. In addition, there will be art on sale from artist residency participants and occasional art exhibits. The residency program on the outskirts of the county attracts artists, writers, artisans, and even performers from all geographies. We'll also have items available for sale in our on-line shop as print on demand to do our small part to limit mass production of stuff. You'll be able to have customized unique objects, clothing items, and even artwork that supports the ongoing activities at The Den and the affiliated residency program.

Non-alcoholic and natural beverages

The Den is not a restaurant.

The Den is not a coffee shop.

We do not sell food.

We do have an array of options for you that are all non-alcoholic and natural including sodas that are made on site or smaller brands than the giant corporations.

If you would like to hang out in our space, there is a minimal table charge and we ask that you purchase one drink per person, minimum per average of 3 hrs. If you are early for a class or staying after a class, there is no table charge, but we would be delighted if you enjoyed a beverage.

We'll share with you our love of tea, non-alcoholic elixers (new brands out there and home-made style recipes), and ever-growing sources of ingredients either locally or sustainably produced.

Sounds and the absence of sounds

Do you hate being in places where the music piped in is so loud that you can't think or your conversation gets louder and louder?

That is NOT The Den! We promise not to have intensely amplified music unless it's a scheduled time.

More often you are going to hear nature sounds, ethereal music, new age without lyrics, and maybe even classical lightly playing in the background.

At a scheduled times on our calendar, we'll host a record hour or two. Maybe you want to bring your old vinyl and play d.j. or donate the old vinyl for others to peruse. This could be a fun afternoon of old country or blues, or take us back to the 70s/80s/90s. Ask and we'll figure it out on the event calendar. It could be a day time or early evening option.

If we have open mic, or host a musician, singer/songwriter, there will be a door cover charge (members get all access).

Would you like to be on the schedule if you play a musical instrument - from sax to harp, or a flute, banjo, etc. Let's connect!
