Property description

This bunkhouse is a converted garage with a large concrete pad that is great to park a camper on.

In the winter our place makes a great executive furnished apartment. Ask about monthly rates for winter!

At the bottom of our lot is 50 foot frontage on the lake. There is a dock there to swim and boat off of.

Interior – Yes we now have WIFI! You will love the interior of our Bunkhouse. It is well finished space with all you need in a little bit of room.

We also have 3 fishing rods and reels (and tackle box) in the closet. All you need is some worms to catch some great big catfish! There are 3 picnic tables around the property to enjoy a snack as well as a portable fireplace and a charcoal grill!

We some classic family fun games to play in the closet as well (Clue, playing cards, and Rook). We built a small “laptop” desk in the main living area with a super view of the lake as you work. I use AT&T for my laptop internet and get 4G service at the cabin or just use our WIFI service at the bunkhouse.

We have two flat screen TVs that get Charter TV cable channels. We also have two air conditioners at the bunkhouse. One in the bedroom and one in the main room.

Inside the closet you will find two outdoor folding chairs to relax with and there is a 4 person picnic table for your use as well.

Parking is not an issue as you have 1.5 acres of land to use. Not a problem if you have several cars or even your boat and trailer etc.

The morning and evening views are just amazing to put it mildly.

You are just a short distance about 1 mile from the German Creek Boat Marina and 10 minutes from Morristown. Here you will find College Square Mall, Walmart and many other shops. You can rent a pontoon there and park it at our small dock. Feel free to call (423) 248-4714 for more information on the boat rental.

Canoe – For an extra 50.00 on your stay we will bring you a 3 man canoe and life jackets to enjoy the lake with. Just let us know in advance.

If you like to get away and enjoy the lake but really come back into an incredible decorated and quality built bunkhouse, this is the place for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I enjoy the challenge of real estate projects, running our Salvage Unlimited store (one close to our bunkhouse, please visit) consulting as CIO and traveling across Europe. We live near the bunkhouse and take great pride in keeping it in tip top shape for your rental experience. If you like Cherokee lake you'll love the Bunkhouse at Cherokee and the privacy we have on our 1.5 acres!

Why the Owner Chose Bean Station:
We bought this great place as a real estate investment and wanted to remodel the cute little rock covered garage into living area to enjoy the lake. I designed this bunkhouse similar to efficiency apartments I have seen in Europe. Small but adequate spaces with simple design and style. I hope you enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
It is hard to find a finished space for rental in our area with, lake frontage, camper parking and hookups and top rated living space. Our bookings of repeat visitors seems to go up every year. You can make our place yours anytime you want to come down to Cherokee Lake.
