Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My partner Barb and myself were living together since 14 years. We finally got married in March 2015. We raised 3 children together and are now Grandmothers of 1 awesome little boy. I am originally from Germany and Barb grew up here, in Jamestown TN. We lived for years in several parts of Florida before we found our Dream House here, in Tennessee. We love traveling, swimming and just relaxing in nature. We have 2 large dogs, Great Pyrenese, Max and Sasha, who roam around the property.

Why the Owner Chose Jamestown, TN, USA:
This property is secluded and right on a private lake but only a 5 minutes drive to Jamestown. Swimming on own risk, no Lifeguard on duty. We live on the property in a house beside the cabin and you may have to share the swimming area in the summer with us. But otherwise we give our guests all the privacy they want.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Private Lake.Swimming on own risk. No lifeguards on duty
