Why Byrdstown: My Husband Ted and I were looking into maybe retiring in a less populated area of the country. We decided to check out the state of Tennessee. Ted got on the computer and googled different areas of TN, preferably near a lake and found Dale Hollow Lake in North Central TN along the Kentucky border. We decided to take a trip out there and look around. We contacted a realtor in the area.
Our first stop was Byrdstown TN to look at some homes in an area called Stair Point Village. It didn't take much looking around to find a place that had everything we could ever want in a home. The second house that we looked at, we fell in love with. We knew it was the one for us. Ted especially loved it because it was just 5 minutes from Dale Hollow Lake. We especially loved!! the huge wrap around deck...always wanted one. :) and we particularly loved the wooded surroundings with all the wildlife scurrying about...especially the deer. Love the deer!! We drove back home five days later to tell the family that we had just purchased a home in TN in beautiful Star Point Village near a gorgeous lake just a few minutes from the house. Their response 'You're kidding right?' We assured them we weren't. They were thrilled!!! Still are. :)
