Decatur house description

Behind the simple rustic exterior of this Amish-built home, lies a beautifully refurbished interior, with modern amenities including WiFi. This house, set in 130 acres of peace and tranquility, is the ideal place to unwind and refresh in the natural beauty of Southeast Tennessee.

This five-bedroom home has a large, open, kitchen-dining-sitting area and two full bathrooms - with travertine stone floors. Upstairs there is an additional sitting area to read, chat or play games. The house sits on a hill, between fields and woodland, with verandas on two floors to admire the views and take in a sunset.

You might choose to linger over an old-fashion breakfast, stroll along the nature trails, swim in the saltwater pool, picnic beside the creek, or perhaps spend a relaxing evening around a campfire. and enjoy the brilliant starry skies.

You may see sheep, llamas, horses, goats, alpacas, ducks and geese as you stroll around the land. From the veranda you may spot the deer grazing in the morning as well as a variety of other local wildlife. It is a remarkable area for bird watching too!

We are always happy to work with you to provide what is needed to make your stay just right.

You could go on a fishing expedition at nearby Watts Bar Lake, hike around Ruby Falls or Fall River Falls, catch a concert on the river in Chattanooga, visit the Knoxville Zoo or the Womens' Basketball Hall of Fame, play at Dollywood or enjoy the scenic wonder of Smoky Mountain National Park...to name a few day trips.

                                    We first pulled up to the house I thought I might had made a mistake till we walked in everything was very clean and comfortable. had everything we needed from plates to paper towels we went with 5 adults 6 kids from 2-14 year old. had a great time, I would suggest That if you bring young kids that you bring some children books and maybe a child's gate to keep small kids from going up stairs on there own. PS loved the pool

                                    We stayed at the house at the end of our vacation to visit with family in the area. The house was neat, clean and very comfortable. We were able to have both families over and enjoy the big porches. The views and surrounding were beautiful! I would recommend it for any family or families.

                                    Wonderful venue for a family reunion! We loved this farmhouse....plenty of room for 14 of us!! It was clean and well maintained...we did however have to clean some of the outdoor furniture. I think we were the first renters this spring. I would definitely recommend this to any group that would love a quiet place to get away!!

                                    The house was very nice. Everything was neat and functional when we arrived. However, The parking for all of us and boats were poor at best. We all enjoyed the place until it was time to park all of our vehicles. I would not recommend this house to a fishing party but for people with cars only it was 4+ stars.

In the past we've accomodated 4 boats, and you've shown us that that is the limit. We'll now know to let fisherman know at the start the limit on charging boats. Hope you all had a great time at the tournament.

                                    The pictures I saw did not do this place justice. An old-fashioned, rustic look on the outside and very up-to-date on the inside. It was very clean, very roomy, and had everything we needed to sleep 14 people comfortably, feed 40-50 people for a buffet lunch, rehearsal dinner for 60 and host a wedding with 100 guests. Not to mention beautiful picture opportunities. The kitchen was equipped and the bedding was better than a hotel. Of course we rented the nearby Ayeli hall on the same property for the reception which was equally impressive with a nice big kitchen with lots of counter space. We really got to soak up the entire wedding experience for 3 days since most of the bridal party stayed on the property with the parents of the bride. We enjoyed the warm, relaxing, salt water pool, the verandas with hammocks, the beautiful scenery. No need to bring towels - they have enough for everyone! The WiFi worked great but cell reception was spotty. Bring your camera and bug spray if you are going to be outdoors. Thank you Homestead for making our daughter's wedding everything we hoped it would be and affordable too! Your staff was extremely accomodating and great to work with.

                                    Family from 2 different states met at the Victory House in Nov 2011. The house is rustic, but the inside was nice and cosy with quilts on the beds, and a well stocked library. The weather that weekend was so nice, so we spent a lot of time on the large front porch playing games, doing crafts and playing instruments. The house is only 10-15 mins from the city of Athens (For those with AT&T cell phones, the connection is spotty at best.)

                                    My girlfriends and I spent a weekend here in November scrapbooking and crafting for Christmas. We had a WONDERFUL time. The space was perfect! We loved the names of each of the bedrooms and the beds were so comfy! We are all checking our schedules to see when we can come back. Thanks for having us! Hope to see you soon.

                                    We five knitters had a very relaxing weekend retreat. The house was clean, well stocked, quiet, and the best place to sit and knit, relax and get to know each other. We are right now making plans to return in a few months.

                                    My wife and I needed a peaceful weekend and found it here!! This was absolutely everything it was advertised and more. These people open up their lovely place with hospitality and kindness. The salt-water pool is great!! The house is very cozy and has everything and more as advertised. We will be back to visit. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away without any interruptions and just relax.
