About the property

5 Bedrooms,4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 Stone Home With Panoramic Lake Views

This pristine LAKE VIEW home was built high on the hills of Stewart County overlooking Standing Rock Bay on Kentucky Lake. No lake access from our home, but we are 5 minutes from Paris Landing State Park and Paris Landing Marina, home of multiple BassMaster and crappie fishing tournaments.

Paris Landing Marina hosts multiple annual bass and crappie tournaments which makes our home a perfect location for the tournaments. Enjoy a peaceful evening on our triple tier down decks after enjoying a full day of fishing on Kentucky Lake.

Paris Landing State Park offers a seasonal roped off swim area, an Olympic size pool with lifeguards, an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, basketball counts, fishing pier and lots of picnic areas.

Eagles Lair is the perfect vacation refuge. Wildlife is abundant, whether it be deer and turkey running through the yard or pelicans and eagles soaring high above the home.

Kentucky Lake is the largest man-made lake East of the Mississippi River. Entertaining your guests is not difficult at this location. Whether you're a water baby or a land rover...there's plenty to do! Rent a pontoon boat, SeaDoo or kayaks/canoes and tour the lake. You can also hike 3 trails at Paris Landing State Park...five minutes from our home or hike 20+ trails at Land Between the Lakes Federal Park twenty minutes from our home.

If you are a history buff, our home town of Dover located 15 minutes from our home offers Fort Donelson Federal Park and the Surrender House. As you stand behind the huge cannons in the park you can visualize these beautiful pieces of history firing at the iron clads as they travel down the Cumberland River.

No matter what the occasion, this home is the perfect refuge for a fishing tournament, a couples vacation, a hunters/fisherman's paradise or a family gathering place.

Entertaining outside is a joy with the triple tier down decks, grill/bar area and covered porches. No need to worry about parking because you have a 40'x50' parking pad to accommodate all of your guests, 5 car maximum, no boats or trailers.

This custom built, energy efficient home was built using 8'x12' D logs with dovetail corners and Centurion Stone. Upon entering the solid mahogany front door you will see beautiful Malaysian Kempas hardwood floors in Exotic Ginger and Italian porcelain tile in Jade Ocre. The earthy look of the knock down walls on the main floor make you feel like you are outdoors. Enjoy panoramic views of the lake from every room in the home and every deck.

The kitchen has a 10' bar with 4 bar stools, Uba Tuba granite counters, Venetian bronze fixtures and stainless steel appliances which add to the warmth of this custom home.

The Main Floor of this three level home offers 2 Master Suites with open Great Room/Kitchen/Dining area. The Upper level offers 1 King Suite that shares a bath with a Queen bedroom.

The full basement has a King bedroom with hall bath and den area.

Not interested in an active day of sports? You will not go home empty handed...our unique local shops offer something for everyone. For a little taste of Italy, be sure to visit our local Paris Winery!

About Jeanne Faith-Garton

Jeff and I found this property Harley riding in 2002. In 2005, after looking at every lake in Tennessee, we decided Kentucky Lake was the place for us. We bought our lot and started building our dream home; we completed the build in Dec. 2006.

We built this home for our children, grandchildren and mothers. Over the last 12 years we've enjoyed our families and created a lot of memories here.

We were married here, both of our mothers spent their last days with us here, and our children/grandchildren have grown up here enjoying the lake. There is a tremendous amount of love and tradition in this home.

With the kids growing up and the loss of our mothers, Jeff and I have decided to start a new chapter in our lives. As a result, we hope to share our beautiful home with others who will appreciate and cherish it as much as we do. We hope you'll form your own traditions here as well.


Jeanne Faith-Garton purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Jeanne Faith-Garton chose Dover

We love the outdoors...we spend the majority of everyday outside.

For years we have known we wanted to retire on the water, and we knew we wanted to experience the seasons. Neither of us are from Tennessee originally; but we fell in love with the seasons and the people here.

What makes this lodge unique

Whether we are drinking coffee on the porch at sunrise, watching the eagles soar over the house, looking at the panoramic views of the lake...the mist on the lake and in the hills in the early morning, watching the sunrise over Fat Daddy's Marina and the moon sparkle on the water at is an awesome place for a retreat of any kind.

Life doesn't get much better than this..what's not to love??

This is the best VRBO property in which I have stayed!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice. My family and I wanted a large home so that we could all stay together for my nephew’s wedding. We were all knocked off our feet. The views are spectacular, bedrooms comfortable and well appointed, great gathering places, and everything you could need in a kitchen. We are already planning a return trip! Thanks Jeanne!

We had a great time at the Eagles Lair! Beautiful inside and out with plenty of room. Jeanne responded quickly, had everything organized, had lists of activities for surrounding areas and so well stocked on dishes and spices! We had a great time meeting here and celebrating our parents "50th" wedding anniversary! We had 3 families with a total of 10 people and we had plenty of room :) Thanks Jeanne for your hospitality!

The property had everything your heart desires for a family vacation. It was a beautiful home that is well furnished with loaded kitchen and pantry. The exterior decks and porches have more than adequate furnishings and room for any type of festivities. Views are amazing. Owners are kind and accommodating. We had no regrets with this property.

Beautiful, well appointed Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 adults had a relaxing weekend at Eagles Lair. The house accommodated all of us very comfortably and the kitchen and pantry is the best stocked that we've ever seen in a rental house. The view overlooking the lake was scenic and beautiful. Almost felt like being in Gatlinburg with a lake view. We spent most of time in the house, playing games, cooking and having fun adult time with friends. Did get out and walk the hilly road and ventured to Paris to visit the winery and minature Eiffel Tower. Jeanne answered questions right away and was very helpful and easy to work with. Look forward to staying at Eagles Lair again.

We're glad you were able to spend quality time with friends at Eagles Lair this winter and get a little sight seeing in at the same time. We hope you will be able to visit us again soon! The lake is a lot of fun in the spring and summer, we'd love to have you back! Please thank your guests for us!
