About ted helm
I own a small business in Nashville and we live in Estill Springs. After graduating from the University of Louisville/NROTC, I spent four years as an Officer on the USS Forrestal and then spent the rest of my career in the facilities management business; providing construction and related services to the commercial office industry.
ted helm purchased this House in 2008
Why ted helm chose Estill Springs
We bought this property with short term rentals in mind and to give me a place to stretch physically and mentally. It was definitely a "fixer upper" and the journey has been rewarding. It has really been fun to see the property reach its beautiful potential. We've added a few additional parcels, so now it is almost 10 acres. We'd love to add a few more cabins and trails and perhaps make it home for retreats and reunions.
What makes this House unique
The property offers a relaxing point of view; whatever yours may be.

Charming and clean
The house is everything we needed; clean, quiet, close to hiking and boat ramps. The sheets and towels were top quality, subtle touches of luxury everywhere. Kitchen supplies were first rate although a little limited. Morning coffee in the screened in porch was great with birds and other wildlife giving us live entertainment. There's a hiking trail right from the back porch! We felt comfortable and pampered. We saw other sites we needed to visit in the area so we'll be back! It's one of the nicest places we've rented (and we do this a lot).
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review! Your suggestions were so helpful and we look forward to your return trip!
Wonderful place, great host!
This is our second summer staying at Ted's property in Estill Springs. The place is great! So wonderfully furnished and comfortable. (The beds are amazing!) Our kids love the bunk room. The 10-acre property is great. Having the public park next door complete with walking trails, access to the creek and the lake is great. We just carried our kayaks down to the water and went out on the water. Ted is a very gracious and wonderful host. I can't recommend him and this property enough!
Wow, what a thoughtful and gracious review...thank you, Dominic!
Having you all return is really a special for us. Please come back soon.
"We'll keep the lights on!"
We loved relaxing in this peaceful home. Everything was so new--fresh, crisp, and clean. Owners had supplied all the little extras--soaps, shampoos, detergents, trash bags. Loved the shower, towels, and comfy bed. Also enjoyed eating on the screened in porch. We took daily walks along the Greenway -- so convenient. This is probably our favorite vacation rental in which we have stayed. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
What a thoughtful review...how nice of you to write about your stay with us!
We sure hope you come back soon!
This property is in a great location and is a 5 star all the way!
The house is so very cute and well maintained with wonderful décor. The beds, sheets and towels were like staying at a 5 star hotel. Everything we needed was supplied in the kitchen even the coffee! We enjoyed the living space and the lovely screen porch and being so close to the stores. Hoping to return next July. Ted is a great host.
Nice place to stay
Very clean and neat. Plenty of towels and other necessities. We felt very comfortable here. Wish we had brought out bikes. Did go fishing, mosquitoes were biting but that does not take away from the house or that it is within walking distance of a fishing spot. Would have been better is grass was cut and trees were cleared from walking path. Pretty area.
Thanks for posting your review, Pat. We were happy to have you all and hope you'll come back soon!
We enjoyed the house very much! It had everything we needed, very clean, and obvious attention to detail. The owner was easy to contact and very responsive to questions, though the information left in the house didn't leave very many! We will be trying this house again, if we can.
How nice of you to take the time to write such a thoughtful review...I really appreciate it. Please come back soon!
