About the Property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

Enjoy excellent trout fishing and relaxation at the Clinch River Lodge.

After a great day of fishing for rainbow, brook, and brown trout, hang your waders up, grab a chair on the wrap around porch, and watch the sun bring its evening colors right up the beautiful Clinch River in Tennessee. Just 20 minutes north of Knoxville, TN, you will find some great tailwater below Norris dam where the water's temperature is 50-60 degrees year round.

We built the Lodge approximately 100 yards downstream from where my grandfather, father, and brothers enjoyed a deep pool and the excitement of getting up in the morning with the fog and the beauty of the river ... all of us wading and casting for the trout it holds. Here at the Lodge the river really does “run through it.”

The Clinch River Lodge sleeps 16. It has 5 bedrooms with 5 baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds. One of the bedrooms has a long bunk bed with a full bed below and a twin above. The other 2 bedrooms have 3 bunk beds in each - one of these bunk beds has a full bed below and a twin above. The Lodge has 3 levels with a wrap around porch and a view downstream as the river sets on the water. The great room has a movie screen available for projected films (you provide the projector). It is also equipped with a 42" HD Flat Screen TV and DVD with a small video library for your view pleasure.

The Clinch River Lodge sits right on the Clinch River about 4 miles downstream from Norris Dam. It is right on the trophy section of the river. The Tennessee state record brown of 28 lbs. was caught about a mile upstream.

Other Things to Do ...
Two miles away - The Museum of Appalachia, as a Smithsonian affiliate, is a living history museum which presents the lifeways of the Appalachian peoples through artifacts, exhibitions and programs. The 65-acre site includes three dozen authentic log structures and two large display buildings surrounded by authentic split rail fences, gardens and pastures with a working farm, sawmill and live farm animals. Also, within an hours drive are Dollywood, Gatlinburg, and Knoxville, Tennessee.

We welcome you to our dream come true - The Clinch River Lodge in Tennessee.

Bring your waders and when the water is at "0" generators below the dam, wade in right below the old Massengale Bridge at our property and fish in the very same pool as did I, my grandfather, father, brothers, and sons.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi. My name is Lance Cooper and I am the President of SalesManage Solutions, a sales consulting company based out of Knoxville, Tennessee. I was born here and have lived here virtually all of my life. I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a VOL fan forever. :) I love trout fishing especially in Tennessee. The Clinch River Lodge is a dream come true for my entire family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. "The River Runs Through It."

Why the Owner Chose Rocky Top, TN, USA:
When I was growing up, I enjoyed outings with a grandfather and father who loved fishing. We especially loved to go trout fishing in various East Tennessee locations. One of those places, The Clinch River, flows below Norris Dam. When we were young we saw the early morning fog on the river, the tell-tale dimples on the water, and got to feel the trout it help fighting on the end of our lines As I grew older, I returned to look for property along this beautiful tail-water. And, on my first revisit I found the land that The Clinch River Lodge now resides on. It was just 100 yards from the special pool of water that my brothers and I remember from days gone by - out in an early morning mist with our Father. We built our 5 bedroom - 5 bath log lodge out of Southern Pine with a wrap-a-round porch and view of the setting sun sending its colors up the river. The river truly "runs through it." And, we invite you to enjoy it as well.
