Space 900 sq ft
Property type house


About the property

Located on beautiful Reelfoot Lake within a couple miles of the Reelfoot Lake State Park, our property is available year round. It can be rented by the day or week, however, there is a two day minimum required to rent the guest house. This property is good for couples, families, duck hunters or fishermen and can serve as your headquarters for area fun and relaxation. The property is located right next door to a public boat ramp which allows you easy access to the lake if you are on a fishing or duck hunting trip or simply want to kayak or canoe around the lake. Reelfoot Lake is the only large natural lake in Tennessee. Reelfoot Lake is about 18,000 acres and includes about 10,900 acres of open water and marshes, and about 7,100 acres of bottomland, hardwood forests and cypress dominated bottoms and sloughs. The area is popular for recreational boating and fishing. Reelfoot Lake is noted for its bald cypress trees and its nesting pairs of bald eagles.

Our guest house is a 900 sq. ft. lake style cabin located on our home property. It has two bedrooms and one full bath. The property can sleep 2-7 people. It comes fully equipped with most everything you could need. Just grab a change or two of clothes and come stay a while.

Some of the local attractions include the annual Arts and Crafts festival every year in October, the Discovery Park in Union City (about 20 miles/25 minutes), Reelfoot Lake State Park/Museum, Full Throttle S'loonshine Distillery in Trimble, TN (21 miles and 27 minutes) as well as several local restaurants serving delicious food.

This was one of the most enjoyable VRBO experiences we have ever had. Sheila and Andrew were exceptional hosts, very attentive to our needs and never "to much". The Cabin was excellent for a fishing trip, plenty of room to spread out, well equipped and close to everything. This is not 5 star accommodations, but it is clean, comfortable and well stocked for a lakeside visit.

I can't say enough about the hosts, we were treated like family during the visit. Plus the extra bonus of being able to use their dock in the PM for a little extra fishing gave my grandson a way to burn off energy while I enjoyed the lakeside experience.

Andrew can provide his expertise on the lake as a guide, given enough notice, or make guide service recommendation if you need them. For us, even though the weather did not fully cooperate, my grandson and I had a truly memorable experience because Andrew went out of his way to make it special.

If Crappie Fishing is your objective on Reelfoot Lake, this is the place to stay. Literally next door to a boat ramp, a mile from the best bait shop in the area and midway between the best local restaurants. The best of all worlds.

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

We had SUCH a good time on this trip. The owners of The Sunset Guest House were MORE than accommodating. They are probably some of the nicest hosts we’ve ever had. The house was cozy and very clean! It had EVERYTHING we needed. The house is close to the water and the main house has a dock that is on the water. They didn’t mind if we used it while we were there. The sunset was gorgeous!! This place is great for a family or if you come here for fishing or hunting. There is no doubt that we will be back to Reel Foot and as long as these two hosts have this house, we’ll be staying here!!!

Convenient place, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Whereas the weather was not great, our experience with the Sunset Guest House was terrific. Sheila and Andrew were so easy and accommodating, also really wonderful people. Kitchen works, bed comfy, plenty of room for two (or up to 7 of 8!). We will be repeat customers here.

Fabulous Get-away Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Guest House is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Reelfoot Lake! The owners are great to work with and were very accommodating during our stay! The house is just what we needed, plenty of room and comfortable beds! Would be a great place for a weekend retreat for a family, girls weekend, or hunting/fishing trip for the guys! The space is comfortable and decorated so nicely. The bathroom is nice and had several little amenities such as a small medicine cabinet and travel shampoo, that I was not expecting! If you decide not to eat at one of the great restaurants in the area, the kitchen is also equipped which just about anything you would need to prepare and enjoy a meal! The guest house offers a great selection of movies, board games, and books for entertainment as well as free WiFi!! I was really impressed with all the little touches that make for such a wonderful stay! I would highly recommend Sunset Guest House on Reelfoot Lake to anyone visiting the area!!! Looking forward to staying here again!
