"Hilltop Haven" was built in 2008 and is a premier lakehouse destination on Tennessee’s Center Hill Lake only twenty minutes away from Sligo Marina. At over 3,000 square feet, the spacious five bedroom, three full bath, two-story lakehouse is a quiet and luxurious retreat located on a dead end cul-de-sac. It is the perfect destination for a family vacation or reunion.

Recently decorated with comfortable, plush furniture, Hilltop Haven invites an afternoon on the deck with a 180-degree view of the lake or a lively day of jet skis and pontoon boat rides. There is no better getaway for watching the famous autumnal Tennessee leaves change while relaxing in the hammock or grilling out on the two story deck overlooking the lake. Hilltop Haven has something for everyone. The surrounding view of trees and lake with the sounds of countless Tennessee birds can become the soundtrack to your most relaxing summer vacation yet. The front yard and surrounding area have seen kite-flying, Frisbee games, and many short hikes for all levels of experience.

At the heart of the house is a culinary foodies dream kitchen with brand new stainless appliances and seating for twelve in the dining room and breakfast room and outside on the patio. The house easily sleeps eighteen including two bunk beds located in the fifth bedroom/playroom. Flatscreen and Apple TVs are in the living room, den, playroom and master bedroom. A SONOS sound system keeps music streaming throughout the home, and wireless internet keeps you connected in every room. Wood burning fireplaces are located in the living room and master bedroom. Washer and dryer are in the laundry room.

Just a short drive away through some of Tennessee’s most beautiful countryside is the famed and award-winning Foglight restaurant situated right on the Caney Fork River. Center Hill Lake is calling your name. We hope to welcome you at Hilltop Haven soon!

About Marcie Allen

The Van Mol's split their time between Nashville and New York. You will pick up the fact that music has had a huge influence on the owners’ intertwined lives since childhood. From the birdhouses to the art collections, music and memory-making permeate the lake house. We hope that you will find joy in the cheerful and upbeat space that has been built and decorated at Hilltop Haven.

Marcie Allen purchased this House in 2008

Hilltop Haven is super private atop a mountain, overlooking Center Hill Lake. We saw every kind of wildlife around the house, and endless stars at night. We visited incredible parks with great hikes to beautiful waterfalls and boating on the lake itself! So much to do...Then there's the house - perfectly appointed with everything you could need from the spacious accommodations; many bedrooms, decks, indoor and outdoor spaces to the games and puzzles for the kids, ping pong table, Sonos, Apple TV and more... we had a fantastic time at the house and all around it. We look forward to going again!

We were blown away by the hospitality and thoughtfulness of our hosts and loved the beautiful view of the river below. There are plenty of restaurants in the area if you don't feel like cooking but it's far enough out to have the retreat experience. Thanks so much for sharing your home!
