  • Excellent family retreat vacation home

    "We rented the Snowden House while in Memphis for our son's wedding. WOW, what a great place! This historic house, with all its architectural grandeur, fine furnishings, and lakefront location was the perfect retreat for our family during a very busy week of wedding preparations, celebrations and sightseeing. Because the house has four bedrooms each with its own bath, we were able to host various family members and close friends throughout our weeklong stay, providing them with their own private area. The fifth bedroom has no private bath, but we put the young adults in that room, and they shared their parents' bathroom(s). The lower level has two other bathrooms which were available to all. The 6,000 square foot home provided plenty of space for us to spread out. We enjoyed early morning breakfasts in the sun room, a birthday celebration in the formal dining room, late afternoon barbeques on the lawn by the lake, and late evening snacks on the screened veranda. The kitchen space was coveted by must guests as it has two sinks, a high functioning Viking gas and electric stove, a large Viking refrigerator and a huge island for prep work and general gathering. The pantry also has a sink and lots of cupboards for food storage. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook, bake and serve. The property owner provided a tour of the house upon our arrival. The pride she has for her family home was evident. She encouraged us to use and enjoy the home as if it were our own. She provided us with all the amenities of a fine hotel, and all the necessities you'd find in a family home. The master suite was a true retreat for us, with its multiple shower heads in the shower and extra long tub for soaking. The linens were high quality, the mattresses comfortable. Some practical suggestions: bring your bug spray, as any lakefront home will have mosquitos/bugs at dusk/night. The AC worked beautifully, keeping everyone very comfortable with its three zone system. Spend the day relaxing by the lake, use the canoe to explore and check out the other houses along the lake. Downtown Memphis is 1/2 hour away. Not having to eat out all the time was a great money saver. Stock the refrigerator at the Memphis Sam's Club or Costco, or at the local Walmart. Eating at "home" was a big cost savings for all. Having a full house make the weekly rental rate very affordable. Hopefully, we'll visit the Snowden House again! Thank you Martha."

  • G&S

    "Our stay in Memphis was a quick and tiring one. Martha met us at the door to this little wonder, showed us around and answered any questions we had as well as helpful hints on neat local spots. In my opinion, Martha is excellent and prompt with all communications and makes booking and staying here easy. As far as this little grocery store goes, we loved it! It's spacious, comfortable, and well appointed. As others have said, the neighborhood is friendly and the place private. It really is a home away from home! Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer. We will be back!"

  • Reelfoot cabin in March

    "The cabin is very nice. The back deck and the deck out onto the lake are also nice. An entire wall of windows facing the lake was great. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for us so we didn't catch any fish. The owners were helpful when we needed directions. Wireless worked on my laptop but not on the tablets or cell phones. Yes, I would recommend this cabin to anyone. Look at the tags on the light/fan switches so you don't leave lights on all day. A few sugar ants in one bathroom, but that was all the insects that we saw. The lake itself is not bass boat friendly. Trees and stumps everywhere. The cypress trees are very interesting."

Reelfoot Lake Travel Tips

Relax in Nature at Reelfoot Lake Vacation Rentals

Formed by a series of earthquakes in 1811 and 1812, Reelfoot Lake is the largest natural lake in Tennessee. It covers 30,000 acres and the average depth of the lake is only 5.2 feet. This unique lake has a natural wetland, which houses a diverse selection of plants and animals. Imagine sitting on the deck of Reelfoot Lake cabins and watching some of the wildlife pass you by. With breathtaking views and serene surroundings, you're sure to enjoy your Reelfoot Lake vacation.

Navigate Reelfoot Lake in the "Stumpjumper''

Reelfoot Lake is known for its "Lake Boat," or more commonly called the "Stumpjumper." These boats, built by four generations of the Calhoun family, are the oldest tradition at Reelfoot Lake. The unique design of these boats helps navigate the stumps and trees standing in the lake, and they're perfect for use in the shallow waters. There are "Stumpjumpers" on display around the United States, including at the Smithsonian Institute, and you can see one in use in person at Reelfoot Lake.

Hop on a Canoe and Enjoy the Reelfoot Lake Scenery

The quiet waters of Reelfoot Lake are perfect for canoeing. In fact, Reelfoot Lake is one of the best quiet water canoeing locations among West Tennessee resorts. Along the shores of the lake, you'll find wild plants and animals in abundance hiding in locations you can only access by boat. A day on the lake is a great way to spend a day of your vacation to the Reelfoot Lakes area.

Find Year Round Fun at Reelfoot lake

No matter the season, there are things to do at Reelfoot Lake. The changing colors of the trees attract tourists in the fall, and the bald eagles encourage travelers to stay through the winter. Spring brings a higher water level, which means better boating opportunities, and summer brings lush vegetation, wildflowers, and wildlife.
