Great place..lots of cool toys! We plan on returning when we can. You absolutely have to eat at Uncle Gus's bbq's down the road going south from 5 oclock.
Perfect place for a family retreat!!
We aimed to kick off a third generation of family enjoying lake activities together and by God's grace with good health and gorgeous weather it happened! As a child and then again as a father our families have vacationed at lake properties from VA to NY. Now as a grandfather this house reminded us of all the best features we've enjoyed before: There's easy and safe swimming with a gradual water entry and no-traffic location. In the cove is quiet water for tubing, wake-boarding, and skiing; and then it opens onto a huge lake for scenic boat rides. (The nearby marina offers ramp, gas, and a restaurant.) The property offers a wider assortment of watercraft than we've ever found in one place. The house easily allowed smaller children to sleep while bigger kids played games together. The kitchen was fully equipped and there's a wonderful covered grill. A western view over the water makes the most of sunsets. After an experimental long weekend both our kids and their kids gave the ultimate compliment-- "can we come again next year and stay longer?"
Great location, beautiful view of the lake.
Screened in porch was a plus. The "out door" toys were an added bonus. The layout of the house was perfect for a family. The foyer was spacious and the dinning area and kitchen overlooked the lake. The over sized master bedroom overlooking the lake was great. We would choose this house again if returning to this side of the lake.
Thanks Nellie! Would love to have you back to visit again!!

The house was located perfectly on the lake- no steps down to the dock- slow grade hill only!
The house was the perfect setup for our group of 9 people. We really liked having 4 bathrooms for our crowd. The kitchen was very open with lots of cabinet space. Plenty of room at the large table to eat and play cards. The separate sunroom area allowed some to watch movies while others read a book or played games in a different area. The air conditioning worked great for our hot summer week. The separate fish cleaning area was put to good use by my son cleaning catfish daily. The owners have added a few more things since we originally booked- now have a beverage refrigerator on the screened in porch, a trampoline in the lake and a slide off of the dock. We really enjoyed all of the toys to use in the water and the dock worked great for our boat and jetski. We will book again next summer if our plans take us to Tennessee!
Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoined Tennessee Lakefront Cottages' It's 5 O'clock...here! We agree this is one special property! Sincerely hope you will be back again and again. We would love to have you!

Unbelievable Lakefront and Front Yard
We had a great weekend at this property. The front yard and lake shore are perfect. The water is about 50 feet from the house, and the private dock is perfect for lounging. The house is outdated, but who cares? It has an open layout so all guests can be in the kitchen/living/dining area. The beds were adequate, the air conditioning worked great, and the screened in porch was perfect for when the sun was setting. The reason for four stars: 1) they have most of the kitchen appliances, but they only have one pan, one mixing bowl. one cutting board, etc. We definitely could've used more throughout our stay. 2) The wifi worked well for most of the stay, but stopped working for about 12 hours (with no cell service, you notice this). 3) They tell you this upfront, but is a large hassle to have to take your trash with you when you leave. They provide you a place to bring it, but it is closed on Sundays, Wednesdays. and holidays. We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend so we had no choices. If you leave it behind, they charge $20/bag which is ridiculous. We would've gladly paid $50 more for the stay if we were able to leave trash.
Overall, a wonderful weekend. We had a lot of fun enjoying the sun with beverages. If you aren't bothered by any of the cons listed above, you will love this place.
Overall this was a good place. Close to the water, good availability of canoes/kayaks/etc, and nice view of the lake and sunset from the kitchen. The layout is a bit spread out and clunky but it's very functional.
I did email the owner asking about a corkscrew since it was missing (I mean, the place is called 5 o'clock right?). The response was effectively 'there's a store down the road so you can go buy one on your own' but I wasn't really interested in taking time on my vacation to go get something that should have been there. Glad we didn't need anything else!
So glad you had a good time in the home! Everyone seems to really enjoy it! Just to clarify, when you texted me "Where is the cork screw?", my response was it should be in the top kitchen drawer and if you don't find it there, I can bring you one or if you are having urgency and can't wait , you can go down to the convenience store just down the street to pick one up. When I didn't hear back , I had assume you found it . My apologies for putting you out. Next visit, I will have personally bar tend for you!
Looking forward to having you back!
