About Judy Valentine
Jim and Judy operated a sign shop, Val-U-Signs, in Oak Ridge, TN from the mid 80's until 2006. When we retired, our son purchased, and now operates, the business. I guess we couldn't stay retired because here we are starting another business. In 2005 we purchased a Crestline modular home and erected it on our property in Norris (8.6 acres). We lived in the home until early 2012. It's a lovely home, but more space than we need. We subdivided the property, moved another house next door and now live there. Over the years we have done quite a bit of entertaining in the Rabbit Run house. Plus there was one wedding and one memorial service. It really is a perfect place to have a gathering. We chose the name because we have had a rabbit rescue here for several years. Our rabbit rescue pen has become a home for chickens. Our granddaughter, Charlie, is an animal lover; and chickens are her current favorite. We still have a house rabbit in our home as well as 2 parakeets and a dove. The rabbit is a white Netherland Dwarf named Marshmallow. Just let me know if your children would like to visit Marshmallow and/or the birds, There are also four cats--they are all gentle, and they may come to visit the Rabbit Run house yard. There is another rabbit and two goats arriving soon.
Judy Valentine purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Judy Valentine chose Norris
It's a lovely and peaceful place. When we purchased the property in 1997, we wanted to be in the country without being too far from civilization. It's just a few minutes to drive to walking trails, streams, Norris Dam and Norris State Park.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Only an hour away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, the retreat is 16 miles north of Knoxville, TN--just minutes away from Norris Lake, Norris Dam, the Clinch River, Appalachian Museum, U.T. Stadium, hiking, biking, and horseback trails. Shopping, restaurants, and easy interstate access are all close by.

We loved our time in Judy’s Home. It’s a nice Quiet home with a lot of space for people to spread out. Great value.
The house was spacious and the hostess was helpful. Was cool having the chickens and goats around the property.
We had a wonderful stay!!!! Rabbit Run was awesome, the accommodation were prefect for our large family. Ms. Judy was an awesome host she greeted us with a beautiful flower arrangement. We are planning to visit again already!!!!!
It was a pleasure meeting your family, and that you shared your wonderful story!
I look forward to your next visit,

Many thanks for the opportunity to stay at Rabbit Run Retreat. We found the house very comfortable and offered plenty of space. Hostess Judy greeted us with a lovely arrangement of fall flowers and she was most friendly. Good location for TN games and the dam and park are close. Highly recommend for group gatherings. Thanks again we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.
