A Lifetime movie was filmed here in 2003 and is now being shown. The name of the movie is "No Regrets" so watch your TV listings for show times or order from Netflix. We have also had a recent Vice President and his family spend some of their vacation time here.

The great-room has a large living, dining, and kitchen area with 24-foot vaulted ceilings, and a massive fieldstone fireplace. One downstairs Queen bedroom with half bath. Upstairs has two bedrooms and a full bath.
One bedroom has a King bed and the other has a set of twins. Aero Beds are available for two more guests--the kids love them! A large deck with rocking chairs, many marinas nearby for boating, water-skiing, and fishing. Water ski instruction is available at some docks. Pets are NOT allowed; no smoking.
Restaurants are at most marinas and in Smithville and Cookville.Try the new resturant at Hurricane Marina. Many types of boats are available for rent at most marinas. Hikers and nature lovers enjoy the numerous state parks nearby including "Fall Creek Falls State Park", with the highest falls east of the Rockies, and "South Cumberland State Park". Hike to the many "water falls" in this park and see the "Great Stone Door." Burgess Falls is also nearby and can be reached by boat on Center Hill Lake. Horseback riding is available in Cookville.
For country music fans, Nashville is less than an hour's drive. Appalachian Center for Crafts is only three miles. For those who like to antique there are many shops in the area. Cookville is only 20 minutes away and has many large chain stores and restaurants.

Exceeded all expectations!
Exceeded all expectations!
We rented this beautiful cabin for a week based on the pictures alone. But let me say, that the pictures do not do it justice. This place is INCREDIBLE! And much larger than the pics lead you to believe. We actually held our wedding ceremony in front of the fireplace and it couldn't have been more perfect! The photographers called the cabin "their dream location" because of all the nature lighting from the huge windows. The views are spectacular and our families cannot stop talking about it. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The cabin itself is fully stocked and it has such a homey, comfy feel that we didn't want to leave! We hope to return for every anniversary!

Owner response: We are so thrilled that the wedding was sucessful and do urge future customers that are interested in a small wedding to consider our home. In front of the fireplace is a perfect spot and the front lawn is also a wonderful place in warm weather with the view in the background for great pictures. We will continue to keep the house well stocked and would also appreciate any ideas for improvement in any area of the property.

Fantastic Log Home with a GREAT VIEW! This Log Home is really wonderful! I wish I could buy it and move in for my full time home. There are no pictures that can ever do it justice. The lady that does the house keeping (Maudine) and the man that does the yard work, firewood, and maintence (Michael) could not have done a better job. They act more like your friends than people that work for the owners! The two story windows/sliding doors that overlook the panoramic lake view really add to the experience. Winter or Summer - this is the best cabin one could rent. Great value for what you get as well!! Thank you for sharing this home with us.

Owner response: We are so happy that Mike and his family enjoyed our home and hope future renters will enjoy our Center Hill Lake retreat as much as they did. We appreicate any thoughts or ideas for improvement.
My family and another couple have rented this home on two different occasions and couldn't be more pleased. The view from the back porch is stunning, and the floor-to-ceiling windows make it even more spectacular. It has every ammenity you could want and is very comfortable. In addition, the owners - although we've never met in person - are extremely kind and helpful. Great place!

Owner response: We appreciate the nice review. It is always good to hear from our renters and will try to continue to upgrade and improve.
I should have written this last year when we stayed here but time got away. This was the most awesome home to relax in with the best view of the lake. Very private. We visited when my brother in law was graduating from Glass blowing and the whole family rented several homes and everyone loved ours the best and all wanted to be with us the entire time. Thanks for sharing your home with us and we will return.

This house/cabin is located at the end of a semi- private Rd. off of 56 south. The town we are close to is Smithville where you will find a Food Lion and a Super Walmart. We are close to Hurricane Marina and can see the Marina from the house. There are other marinas such as Hidden Harbor at the end of Hurricane Ridge Rd which turns into Casey Cove Rd Off of U.S. 70, Sligo which is further southeast off of U.S.70 under Sligo Bridge.

Why the Owner Chose Smithville:
We love Tennesse and Center Hill Lake because of the beauty of the area. It is peaceful but not far from more activity if you would choose to go to Nashville for the day or to Knoxville. We had always wanted a log house and we were so happy when one of our children found the house for us. Once we saw the view and the house we knew it was for us and our family to enjoy when we are not renting for others to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beautiful setting that gives us the use of the lake for swimming or a chance to go boating, golfing and hiking on the beautiful Tennessee trails. Just sitting on the deck watching the wildlife and enjoying the view is a treat.
