About Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733

A soon to be retired local owner.

Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733 purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733 chose East

A Fly fisherman's dream cabin on the river bank and a great retreat to relax and fish when Norris Dam is not Generating. A family friendly location that offers private river access, Norris Lake Marina with lake rental boats 5 miles away, and many historical sites to visit including the Appalachian Museum, Oak Ridge's American Museum of Science and Energy including the building of the atomic Bombs and many more Knoxville museums. Historical areas of East Tn and TVA and Oak Ridge are available within minutes.

What makes this cabin unique

Guest have said:

A guest in 2016 stated "My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this cabin! It is well situated on the Clinch river for prime trout fishing! The cabin is well appropriated and the owner was very responsive whenever we had a question. Fishing on the Clinch is very generator dependent, but the cabin is very close to Norris TN which boasts Norris Lake and Norris Dam State Park with additional fishing/boating/hiking options. In addition, the cabin is close to Knoxville and the Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area. We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return soon!

Others said,

"The view from the River Room and screened porch convinced us this was a great find.

And it is always 5-10 degrees cooler on this river than in the hills of Tennessee."

ON 5/18/13 a visitor reported :

'I hooked two 20 + inch browns today. Time to fish. Got one within 7 feet, the other within two feet. Big teeth all in the same dang hole - heck may of been the same fish!!!

Caught 10 other smaller trout while wading. "

On 5/19/13:

Another Fisherman caught the same 22 inch fish in our hole today and said he pulled a 27 inch brown out yesterday.

They were all released - to be caught again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. Eastman...how a great if to brief of a trip to your cabin. Despite the weather front that put down the fish, we did manage to lose a few nice big trout just upstream of your place, and landed some 1-foot longs. Will try it again some time, maybe earlier in the fall next year.

Beauty and comfort

  • 4 of 5

The place is lovely and spacious. Beds are average in comfort. Must grow accustomed to the ever changing river levels (due to the very near damn) to maximize fishing opportunity and success. Plentiful fish!

Rocky Top Chapter, Women Marines Assocation

  • 5 of 5

The Women Veterans and River Guides thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We had everything we needed for a fantastic weekend. The Clinch and Miller's Island is just around the corner. The owner responded quickly to all of our questions and was great to work with. I would definitely recommend staying here whether you are fishing or not!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. With the Clinch 20 feet out the back door it is a great place for wading fisherman. And the boaters are less than a mile to the Miller's Island boat ramp. Hope y'all come back. Regards, EGE.

Decent place. Great location. Some very minor improvements would improve experience.

  • 3 of 5

The showers need new heads, the back porch was as slick as ice and needed to be cleaned. The TV's are very small for the rooms they are in. The grass needed to be cut bad. Very roomy and great location.

Owner's Response: Jason, This is the first time anyone was upset about the shower heads or the back porch, I will check both and fix asap. Unfortunately, due to the many afternoon rains lately the mower was not able to mow the week before your stay, but we actually did mow the day after your stay. Thanks for staying with us. We look forward to your next stay and promise to do better. E.

Great experience for relaxation and fishing.

  • 5 of 5

Very safe and secure cabin overlooking the river. We enjoyed the screened back porch watching ospry catch trout as kayakers passed by. The house is spotless, warm and inviting. The air and all appliances worked great. Pots, Pans, utensils, towels, ext.. Were provided and came in handy. I would definitely return without any hesitation. If you are getting together with fishing buddies or a family looking for a place to get away, this is one you should look at. Something I would like to see would be ceiling fans in the screened porch for those hot days when the wind is still. I will definitely return. Tim

Other fishing areas:

Wade Fishing is good at our cabin, but fly fishing for trout is great on the river, if TVA controls it's dam flows to accommodate your visit dates, so you have to check the dam Release Schedule Daily.

But if you want to fish for bass, crappie, and other fishing we have Norris lake three miles up stream and you can launch or rent a boat from there at Norris Dam Marina.

There is a a Clinch river put- in at Millers Island about one mile upstream from the cabin for floating the river and a take out 5-6 miles below at Peach Orchard ramp.

In our area we have four more fly fishing rivers all tailwaters, the Wautaga and South Holston near Bristol, TN, and the Hiawasee and Holston are good too. Fishing guides are everywhere.

Of course there are lots of other Lake fishing available too.

Check out TVA lakes in East TN on the web.

I suggest staying at the cabin and traveling to two or more other sites during the week.

Wade Fishing is out the back door at our cabin as fly fishing for trout is all over the river, if TVA controls it's dam flows to accommodate your visit dates.... you should check the dam Release Schedule Daily.

But if you want to fish for bass, crappie, and other fishing we have Norris Lake Marrina three miles up stream and you can launch or rent a boat from there.

There is a river boat ramp at Millers Island one mile upstream from the cabin for floating the river and a take out 5-6 miles below Miller's Island at Peach Orchard ramp.

In our area we have four more great fly fishing rivers all tailwaters..the Wautaga and South Holston near Bristol, TN, and the Hiawasee 2 hours south on I-75 and the Holston below Cherokee Dam are good too. Fishing guides are available for all these rivers.

Of course there are lots of other Lake fishing sites available too.

Check out lakes in east TN by looking at the TVA website for TVA TAILWATERS and see a list of lakes that are accessible in our area.

Also consider:

Museum of Appalachia - 4 miles,

Oak Ridge Museum - 22 miles,

Clinton TN - 15 Miles or so, has more antiquing shops than any other nearby town.

Knoxville - 15 Miles

In recent years downtown Knoxville has boomed with Beer Brewers, one whiskey Distiller and restaurants too many to name! if you would like an Urban experience Check it out.

Zoo Knoxville - 15 miles, and we think a first rate zoo. Look it up.

Great Smoky Mountains - 50 - 60 miles,

Pigeon Forge Tn - 40 - 50 miles,

Hospital is at Exit 112, for Tennova. 11 miles -
