Property description

Three bedroom, log home built from hand hewn logs. Breathtaking view of 65 mile long Center Hill Lake and surrounding hills in the Heart of beautiful Middle Tennessee on 7+ acres very private property at the end of a small community road. Located near Hurricane Marina

A Lifetime movie was filmed here in 2003 and is now being shown. The name of the movie is 'No Regrets' so watch your TV listings for show times or order from Netflix. We have also had a recent Vice President and his family spend some of their vacation time here.

The home is a two-story, private dwelling with 12-foot high picture windows across the lake side of the house. The great-room has a large living, dining, and kitchen area with 24-foot vaulted ceilings, and a massive fieldstone fireplace. One downstairs Twin bedroom with half bath. Upstairs has two bedrooms and a full bath.

One bedroom has a King bed and the other has a Queen bed. Aero Beds are available for two more guests--the kids love them! A large deck with rocking chairs, many marinas nearby for boating, water-skiing, and fishing. Water ski instruction is available at some docks. Pets are NOT allowed; no smoking.

Restaurants are at most marinas and in Smithville and Cookville.Try the new resturant at Hurricane Marina. Many types of boats are available for rent at most marinas. Hikers and nature lovers enjoy the numerous state parks nearby including 'Fall Creek Falls State Park', with the highest falls east of the Rockies, and 'South Cumberland State Park'. Hike to the many 'water falls' in this park and see the 'Great Stone Door.' Burgess Falls is also nearby and can be reached by boat on Center Hill Lake. Horseback riding is available in Cookville.

For country music fans, Nashville is less than an hour's drive. Appalachian Center for Crafts is only three miles. For those who like to antique there are many shops in the area. Cookville is only 20 minutes away and has many large chain stores and restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. I am from Tennesee and was raised in Johnson City and Nashville. I have lived in New York, New Jersey, Michigan,and several other south eastern states. I have 3 grown children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. We all love the lake and the unique log home with the breathtaking view.

Why the Owner Chose Smithville, TN, USA:
We love Tennesse and Center Hill Lake because of the beauty of the area. It is peaceful but not far from more activity if you would choose to go to Nashville for the day or to Knoxville. We had always wanted a log house and we were so happy when one of our children found the house for us. Once we saw the view and the house we knew it was for us and our family to enjoy when we are not renting for others to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beautiful setting that gives us the use of the lake for swimming or a chance to go boating, golfing and hiking on the beautiful Tennessee trails. Just sitting on the deck watching the wildlife and enjoying the view is a treat.
