The cedar lodge has beautiful stonework throughout and 2 wonderful stone fireplaces with gas logs that turn on with a flip of a switch. The living room is rustic with high A-frame wood ceilings. Large picture windows offer fantastic views throughout. The five bedrooms are private and easily accessible to the bathrooms. The most delightful room is the glass sun-room with a panoramic view of the lake. You will find the kitchen fully furnished with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The deck wraps around the front of the house with a large gas grill, jetted hot tub and seating for four. Imagine yourself sitting in the hot tub at night under the stars looking out at the lake. It is NICE... The den is spacious with a view of the lake and a large stone fireplace to enhance your evenings. We offer internet and cable and a library of wonderful DVD's (many for children). Outside your door is the lake with our own private small dock for boats, playthings or a place to just sit and fish with your son or daughter. Hop in your own boat and you will find a marina just down the way that has a full outdoor restaurant and live music all through the summer. Boats may be rented at the marinas as well. There is the beautiful South Holston dam on the lake and Cliff Island where you will find kids and adults jumping from a stone ledge into the water. The sunsets are spectacular but the turning leaves in the Fall are rich and colorful as well and then there is the winter snow as you soak in the hot tub overlooking a frozen lake that is indescribable. Finally, spring arrives with the purple martins returning to our bird hotel and all around turns green as life blooms everywhere. The activities and opportunities around this area are innumerable and the beauty does not fade with the summer... it lasts for 4 seasons. Come and stay and enjoy the festivals, the live theaters, the wonderful and delicious eateries. You are in God's country and it just doesn't get better than that. We would love to share our good blessings with those who are led our way as our honored guests.

Wonderful Christmas Location
Our Girls Night Out group stayed overnight to celebrate Christmas. We had such a wonderful time - the house was perfect for us and we enjoyed the holiday decor at the house! Would recommend to anyone!
wonderful family getaway`
Three families met here for a holiday weekend. It was perfect for our needs - plenty of beds, a well equipped kitchen and lots of space to hang out. We would definitely return.
This property was perfect for our stay for a family wedding in October. You could sit all day in the beautiful sun room and take in the views of the mountains and water. We had 8 grandchildren with us and the house was set up perfectly for them with bunk beds and even a toddler bunk bed, we even found a basket of toys! It was so easy to work with Bethany renting the property and she was quick to answer any questions we had about our stay. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful home.
This is a very inviting family friendly home to stay in.
Our family of 14 came together arriving from the west, south and the north for a Long weekend of fun and relaxation. We originally came to attend the Bristol race but also enjoyed other things especially the lake. The home is very family oriented. We ate all her meals there and enjoy just being together. We also enjoyed the trails caverns and local winery. The outdoor hot tub and cooking facilities were an added bonus. The outdoor fire pit was enjoyed by the entire family at the end of a long and tiring day. We would certainly come again.
Wonderful home...the only thing to make it better would be flat walk to the lake....3rd year using..
We love it...will be back next year! We did use the pontoon boat one day...rained alot...did not hurt us...
