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.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The cleanliness and attention to detail reflect the skill and caring thoughtfulness of the owners. Beautifully furnished and completely supplied. Loved the woods, lake view and green-way walking trails. Very relaxing and we enjoyed the Easter holiday with our 5 year old grandson. The yard was perfect for an Easter egg hunt and blowing bubbles! We want to come back and highly recommend this property! Bob and Brenda S.

Fantastic home and host!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at Ted's house. Very clean and modern house, stocked with all amenities one would need for a stay. Beautiful location, quiet and private, with walking trails nearby. Bedding and towels were top wife wishes we had a shower like that in our house, my daughter wishes she had the bunk beds! Ted was a perfect host, very communicative, and check-in/out was a breeze. If we are in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here. Highly recommended!

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two adult daughters needed a half-way point to meet for a couple of days during the Christmas holiday.

We were tickled to find this excellent property in Estill Springs where we enjoyed a wonderful, quiet, and comfortable Christmas! The property was clean and in A+ condition in every way! The amenities were superb. Beds were comfortable - I wish my own shower at home is as good as the one here. Our daughters particularly enjoyed coffee from the Kureig! - All the previous positive reviews we read on the property were "spot-on!" The property was perfect for our Christmas rondavue! Ted was kind and attentive in every way. We especially appreciated his quick and courteous agreement to let us extend our check out time on Christmas day so we could extend our family time a little while longer! - We can highly recommend this property without reservation! - Steve
