About the property

Large Home, 4 Private Bedrooms, Three Covered Decks And Spectacular View

"Bridgewater Terrace" will be featured on "My Lottery Dream Home" on HGTV on February 16th and February 23rd, 2018. The house was chosen by HGTV to be considered for purchase by two lucky winners of the Florida Lottery that were looking for a vacation home at Dale Hollow Lake. What an adventure!

"Bridgewater Terrace" consists of four floors and three covered decks. It has four private bedrooms with queen beds and four full baths. Each floor is decorated in a different theme. On the lower level there is a wet bar and Foosball table. It is across from Obey River State Park Campgrounds and Beach and overlooks Sunset Marina, Pier 42 Restaurant, and Highway 111 bridge. The mountain view is breathtaking and when the sun sets the lights from the marina shimmer on the lake. The night view is extraordinarily beautiful.

The home will rent to a couple or will sleep a maximum of 12 persons comfortably.

About Bonnie

Over 30 years ago I met my husband Greg. Before we were married he brought me to Dale Hollow Lake because it is where is father grew up as a child and he has many family members that still live in the area. Greg has visited Dale Hollow every year for over 50 years. I have been coming here for over 30 years every year with my family. The kids have pretty much grown up boating, water skiing, and enjoying the lake and the community. We have seen many changes over the years.

We purchased the 'SunCatcher' property with the idea of building a small rental cottage but when we started to build we soon came to the realization that it would be much larger than we expected. Thus we ended up with four floors. We drove from Ohio to Tennessee every weekend for over a year to work on the house. We have had many wonderful visitors that love the house as much as we do and we hope everyone that stays will enjoy it too!

Bonnie purchased this house in 2003

Why Bonnie chose Byrdstown

We purchased this property because of the location and the view of the lake, marina, and mountains. Also, because of the convenience to launching our boat and being on the water in just a few minutes. We purchased it too because it is in a quiet neighborhood. We love the location!

What makes this house unique

The unique layout of the home is great. It has four private floors with each floor having its own full bath. Three of the floors have covered decks.

One of the most awesome things about the home is the night view. If you sleep in the loft bedroom you can raise your head at night and see the lights from the marina, and the bridge which lights up the water. It is so beautiful.

You can sit on any of the decks and listen to the sounds around you. It is so serene.

Lots of space, lots of privacy, and a great place to vacation. We built the house for others to enjoy as we have for many years.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Suncatcher is absolutely fantastic!! My family and friends have been renting this cabin for the last 4 years. This is our all time favorite place to stay when vacationing on Dale Hollow Lake!! The cabin is always SUPER clean and provides all that you would need. Lots of towels. blankets, pillows, and fully equipped kitchen. Love having four different levels, and three different decks over looking Dale Hollow Lake. Each level has a bedroom and a full bath! To top it off, it's only 5 minutes from Sunset Marina. The owner Bonnie is absolutely awesome if any problems occur! If your are looking for a cabin on Dale Hollow Lake for just a short weekend; or the entire week, this is the place to stay!! You will absolutely fall in love with this cabin!! My family is already asking to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. It has been a pleasure renting to you for several years. As for the house, every time I go there and open the front door I can't believe the view. You pretty much said all of the great things about it and I appreciate that you stay every year. I know that I told you that HGTV just filmed our house for the TV show "My Lottery Dream Home." The house was chosen randomly for the show as it was for sale and the lottery winners are buying their dream home. The show will air in January. I will post the date. Talk with you soon!

3 Family Vacation Rental overlooking Sunset Marina on Dale Hollow Lake

  • 5 of 5

If you haven’t visited DHL, Suncatcher is nicely located with convenient access to groceries, gas, ice cream, and adult beverages in Byrdstown. It’s also an easy 3-5 minute drive down to Sunset Marina which offers boat/jet ski rentals in addition to a bar, restaurant, and souvenir shopping for the kids.

Suncatcher is a 4 level home (3 floors + loft over main living) offering plenty of sleeping space for our 3 families (6 adults/6 kids). The home is well loved by its owners, nicely decorated, and remarkably clean from top to bottom. Bonnie, the owner, even hand-cleaned the windows ahead of our arrival.

While only the loft provides a true en suite, the bedrooms and bathrooms are located right next to one another on each of the 3 levels. Our girls had a bedroom to themselves in the lower level and our boys crashed in the middle and lower level open spaces with plenty of room. We did bring cots for the boys however so as not to have to open/close the sleeper sofas each day. The lower level bed was wrapped in a protective coating; while our girls didn’t mind, not an ideal sleeping option for adults. Each bedroom has dressers and closet space to store your belongings. The bathrooms are limited in the amount of hooks for towels and bathing suits. We would recommend the addition of modern tv’s/entertainment offerings to help the kids through rainy days.

On the main level the kitchen provides a great view out over the lake and marina, and can fit about 2 people at a time. Any more than that and becomes difficult to maneuver while making a meal or doing the dishes. For a house that accommodates 12-14 people, we wish there had been more utensils, plates that can go in the dishwasher, and other cooking amenities. But with proper planning we made it work with use of paper plates, plastic ware, and disposable drinking cups.

The three decks provided an abundance of outdoor space to eat, drink, and enjoy the sights. We appreciated that Suncatcher provides multiple outdoor trash bins that were emptied several times throughout our week-long stay. The clean grill was easy to use and was stocked with two full tanks of propane. With a large picnic table, two smaller tables/chairs, and a porch swing – you won’t need to bring your own chairs to watch the boats come and go from the marina each morning or view the moon and stars at night.

Bonnie was a pleasure to work with. We recommend this house for 2-3 families and look forward to returning to Suncatcher!

Great location and plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

Due to thee hot muggy weather we were unable to enjoy all the views from the home. Mosquitoes were swarming! The home was very comfortable and ideal for

Multiple families due to living spaces on all levels.

Owner's Response: I wish I was able to do something about the weather and mosquitoes but unfortunately I can't control that. I am sure that the views were still spectacular. Every time I am there I am amazed at how relaxing and beautiful the views are from all four stories in the house. The privacy that the house gives having four floors, four bedrooms, and four baths is what most people love about the home. Hope you got to cool off in the lake!

2nd Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at this beautiful home. It is so spacious and having all of those bathrooms sure is a big plus. The view is spectacular and house deco is great. Most importantly the house was very neat and clean. We had every amenities at our finger tips. It is as if you are at home, but with this incredible view. Bonnie (the owner) is very accommodating and makes sure you have everything you need. Thanks for sharing your home.
