About Doug and Donna Hess

Professionalcouple, empty nesters who enjoy escaping the city for the slower pace of life and friendly atmosphere of Dale Hollow Lake.

Doug and Donna Hess purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Doug and Donna Hess chose Tennessee

We have been vacationing here since we married in 1995, we honeymooned here. We have our family reunion here every year and there is nothing better than sitting out on the deck in the evening with family sharing the events of the day and looking at the gorgeous stary nights. We can't wait to wake up each morning to have coffee on the deck and to possibly get a glimpse of deer or turkey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at your beautiful cabin. The weather was perfect, the lake was warm and the cabin was the perfect place to relax, eat & play cards. Thank you for your hospitality. (copied from guest book)

Beautiful cabin in the woods

This spacious, well-appointed canon has everything your family needs for a vacation at the lake. One point with this area, bring your own food from home.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family always has a wonderful time when we get to stay here. Since our last stay, our family had grown by a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law and a granddaughter and there was room for everyone to have their own space. The amenities are top notch. The view of Dale Hollow Lake is nice and Sunset Marina is very close. Doug & Donna have always been great to work with. We will be back sometime. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled a lot over the years and been fortunate to stay at some wonderful places, but I can honestly say none have been better than the Hess home on beautiful Dale Hollow Lake! The home welcomes you the moment you walk in the door and you truly won't want to leave. The home and outside living area is furnished and outfitted with everything you will need, Our group ranged in age from 60 to 1 year and was suitable for all. The proximity to Sunset Marina (2 minutes) made it very convenient for those wanting to spend the day on the lake. Prior to leaving, I had heard almost everyone say "I want this house", what better compliment can you have. I could go on and on, but will stop by saying that we are already planning another trip to this home for next Summer. Thanks again Donna and Soug!
