Brigadoon cottage description

Beautiful cottage on one of the widest and most scenic sections of the Tennessee River/Watts Bar Lake near Rockwood, TN about 12 miles off Interstate 40. The community is gated and great for biking and walking due to the lack of traffic. Our cottage due to its location on a point has views of the lake and river from every window. The back yard has a gentle slope down to a private dock (swimming, fishing and boating) and just a short walk to the nearby private community beach with volley ball and shuffle board. There extensive wildlife including Bald Eagles, Canadian Geese, Osprey, deer and even a bear was seen swimming in the river this summer. The community has nearby shopping (Wal-mart, etc.) and there is a bowling alley, drive-in theater and skating rink nearby. Also, there are numerous Wilderness areas and State parks nearby with waterfalls, hiking and other activities. The town of Crossville is nearby with more extensive shopping and numerous golf courses.
There are 6 marinas nearby with restaurants, boat rentals, etc. Also, there are numerous islands nearby to explore by boat including the very popular gathering spot of 'Sand Island.'

              Car: Necessary

              The property is in an upscale, gated community on the Tennessee River with small mountains nearby. The community is approximately 12 miles off interstate 40 near Rockwood, TN and is an easy drive. The river is extremely wide and scenic in this section. My property looks directly out at a large undeveloped island and there are numerous islands in this section of the river to explore including the popular 'Sand Island.' Numerous State Parks and Wilderness areas are nearby for hiking and exploring. Crossville, TN is approximately 30 minutes away with good shopping and numerous golf courses. There is a nearby Drive-in Theater, bowling alley and Roller Skating. There is a Wal-Mart in Rockwood and a new Hospital just opened in the area as well. There are 6 marinas within 5-6 miles by water and most have Restaurants and boat rentals. Some offer live music on weekends as well.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About: Like all of the owners in this community we live nearby and to virtually all of us this is a second home which we rent. It means renters get a great place more like there home than a 'rental property.'

              Why Brigadoon:
              We had been vacationing on Watts Bar Lake since 1996 and finally found a property we liked enough to buy and build on.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Less than hour from our residence so we can use the place often. Due to relatively mild climate we can use it all year round.
