Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Perched 50 feet above Tims Ford lake, this retreat has Open Views across the lake. A Large Floating Dock is perfect for Swimming, Boating, Water Skiing, Tubing, Fishing or Relaxing. The Master Bedroom has an beautiful Lake View through 9 foot wide sliding glass doors with a Hot Tub just outside on the 400 square foot covered patio. In the evening, the living room can become a Home Theater with a 10' pull down screen and Surround Sound. There is a small universal gym in the second bedroom. The living room has a sofa and two Rockers. A community Boat Ramp is 500 yards from the house. Kayaks are available year round to explore the lake or nearby Goose Island. Originally designed as a 'mother-in-law' apartment, this 850 square foot property is the lower half of a lake home with a private entrance and sound-proofing.

This property is best for a romantic retreat for a couple, or a couple with one or two children old enough to swim and safely navigate the stairs to the lake. It can be used for two couples, but there is only one bathroom and the second bedroom doesn't have any windows. There is only parking room for two cars. Sorry, no pets.

The owners travel frequently and are often not present. If the owners are present, they're usually 'invisible' and the backyard and dock are for exclusive use by the guests during their stay. We do have neighbors on both sides. One of them has small children, and we would prefer they not learn 'new words' :). So, this property is NOT a good choice for loud or late night partying. However, we can often provide special requests such as having a chilled bottle of champagne, cake or flowers waiting upon arrival for special occasions.

We also have high speed wireless Internet (50mbps).

About Lilli or Dave Stevens

Dave is a former Navy F18 pilot and Lilli was in the medical field. They have an e-commerce business and Dave is an author. For those who like Techno Thrillers, a complimentary copy of the first book of the trilogy is provided (Amazon bestseller and ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year).

Why Lilli or Dave Stevens chose Winchester

We moved here for work reasons and fell in love with the area and people. It's a slower paced life in a beautiful surrounding but with plenty of opportunities to play. We travel frequently and thought it would be a waste not to share this little slice of paradise.

This property is not recommended for individuals with heart, back or other physical or medical conditions. Due to the steep slope and stairs, small children are not recommended. If present, they MUST be supervised at all times for their safety. Sorry no pets.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodation at Dave and Lilli's was fantastic. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the view was beautiful. Dave and Lilli made us feel at home and they went the extra mile for us. We would definitely go back, if they'd have us. Thank you so much.

Truly a slice of paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Lilli's and David's lakefront property is beyond words. Your privacy is respected and yet at the same time you feel the warmth of a family welcome. All of your needs for an amazing get away are taken care of...water sports equipment, a hot tub, an extensive DVD and WII collection, as well as all the comforts of home...the mints on your pillow add that little touch of pampering along with some awesome cookies! What a delightful experience...thank you so much!

Well appointed guest attachment to owner's home

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom one full bath rental was very nice. We arrived to fresh baked cookies left by the owner! The kitchen and bathroom have everything you may need or forgotten. We enjoyed the amazing view, hot tub and projector in the living area. We will return. Thank you Dave and Lilli.

Tims Ford is a 10,700 acre lake with 246 miles of beautiful shoreline and less than 20% of shoreline development. Located in a secluded community, but just 12 minutes from local restaurants, a historic cinema and a Wal-Mart. The Jack Nicholas designed Bear Trace Golf Course was named one of the 'Top Ten Places You Can Play', and it's a 20 minute drive or 7 minutes by boat! For history buffs, less than 30 minutes away in Lynchburg is the Jack Daniels Distillery (the oldest in the US) and Wine Tasting, both open for tours and tasting. Sewanee and the University of the South, along with exceptional dining, are a 35 minute scenic drive up the mountain. The Bonnaroo Music Festival is also 35 minutes away. Less than 45 minutes to the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, and some of the best hiking trails in the Southeast, such as Fiery Gizzard and Stone Door. We are also an hour from Huntsville and the US Space Center (rides, museum & Space Camp), and 75 minutes to Chattanooga and 90 minutes to Nashville.
