Cypress Point is not only nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Cumberland Plateau, it is tucked at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a small neighborhood of 9 homes located on a secluded cove of Tims Ford Lake. Just a mile from Winchester's charming town square, Cypress Point is ideally situated in Franklin County enabling easy access to Historic Winchester, Estill Springs, Cowan, Sewanee, and Monteagle, Fayetteville, and Lynchburg for shopping, dining, or touring the city and state parks or the many area attractions as the area is rich with history. Bike along the quaint historic area to reach the town square within minutes. Canoeing the Elk River is also minutes away in addition to horseback riding, seasonal hunting, four-wheeling, and dirt biking fun which can be had on nearby and picturesque Keith Springs Mountain! Visit the Belvidere area's old mill and store and shop for a couple of Adiriondack chairs handcrafted by the Menninites to take home. The Unclaimed Baggage Center, famous for bargains, is 44 miles away in Scottsboro, AL.
The Cypress Point Lake House, a 2-story home constructed in 2007, is at the tip of the Cypress Point subdivision. If you appreciate horticulture, there is an abundance of annuals, perennials, and flowering and fragrant shrubbery. A charming front porch accented by the stacked stone masonry is the perfect place to enjoy afternoon coctails and the sweet perfume of the rose garden garnishing the handsomely landscaped grounds. However, if a shady spot is your afternoon preference, the covered back deck overlooking the private back yard, field, and wooded area would be your choice. This deck includes new rocking chairs, a new extra large stainless steel grill, 6 dining chairs with glass-topped dining table all which adjoin the downstairs great room via double French doors. Watch the sun rise on this deck. Another outdoor spot for your relaxation is the upper balcony's seating area. Lastly is the back lawn for enjoying the provided bocce ball or croquet sets, or perhaps bring your own corn hole, volleyball or badminton sets or golf gear for putting. The fire bowl and seating area are also located on the back lawn; however, we ask that guests build no fires during times of drought.
Family friendly and perfect for entertaining, the open and airy floor plan includes large windows facing the private back yard with cathedral ceilings in the great room all combining to allow for optimal natural light. Designed with antiques and charming details for your comfort, the lake house at Cypress Point provides the perfect environment for a relaxing and fun Tennessee vacation! The main level features a large living room with lots of comfortable seating (including three sofas) for all to view the large screen television and is open to a professional and modern, fully furnished kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances with an eat-in kitchen including a table seating six, an adjoining long antique church pew to accommodate more diners, and a breakfast bar seating two additional people. Again, these three areas are open to each other incorporated as one, in a sense, in a great room type of setting. The main level also includes 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and a laundry room with large load capacity washer and dryer and long counter for folding. The stairway leads you from the main level to a landing with another seating area and a quaint reading nook with 100+ books for your pleasure. At the top of the stairs is an overlook landing with views into the main level living room and of a bit of the cove of the lake.
The second story includes the fabulous master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and unique antique furnishings. The master bedroom features a private deck with seating perfect for enjoying your morning coffee while others are sleeping, for sunbathing and lounging by day, or for watching the moon rise over Sewanee Mountain at night. The second story also boasts a large and luxurious full master bath with a jacuzzi tub, a separate shower, and a double vanity (double sinks with mirrored wall behind).
An additional room containing a daybed with a pull out bed underneath, a full-length mirror, wicker table with lamp, wicker lounge chair, and two closets for plentiful storage is located upstairs and shares the master bath in the case that this room may be needed for extra sleepers. While this room is very small and cozy accomodating two children or one adult well, it may feel tight for two adults. This is the room which we use as the semi-4th bedroom as it is vented to the heating and air system but has no window.
The very large boat dock and ramp is conveniently located directly across the street from the home and is property of the neighborhood association. It is of utmost importance that rules are followed and the neighborhood area and neighbors themselves are treated respectfully. You will be furnished a private slip and will be provided the slip number to dock your watercraft if using the dock. It is important to adhere to using our slip. The slip number will be relayed upon booking of the reservation after an understanding has been reached by the guests to follow the dock rules such as no running, no cluttering of the walkways, keeping noise levels low for consideration of the neighbors, etc. Basically, the rules involve common courtesy for others and for safety for all--rental guests, neighbors, and for the neighborhood. For safety concerns, an addendum to the covenants and by-laws requires that children under the age of 16 be escorted by an adult.
Also, in showing consideration for the neighborhood residents, we ask that guests park in the home's driveway and/or to the left of the drive on the home's lawn. There is AMPLE PARKING AREA ON THE HOME'S PROPERTY alleviating any need to park on the street.
THE BEACH----The sandy public Winchester Beach and picnic area is a nice feature to have located so nearby by merely travelling under the bridge just yards from our community dock. Just around the bend from the beach is the Winchester City Park and also the Bass Club for fishing enthusiasts.
The 4 or 3 bedrooms sleeping a total of 11 people include 2 queen beds, 2 twin beds, 1 bunk bed and 2 trundle-type beds. There is a queen size self-inflatable mattress if anyone prefers sleeping in the great room or adding this mattress in one of the bedrooms or elsewhere. However you choose to arrange the sleeping, we ask that you do not sleep more than 11 people at the property in consideration of the neighborhood residents.
The home features 2 full bathrooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen with granite countertops, hardwood floors throughout with tile floors in the baths and laundry. The three televisions are serviced by satellite. Although the home is not wheel chair accessible, it is easily accessible, indeed, with minimal steps to the front porch and deck.
Tims Ford Lake is one of Tennessee's best kept secrets with approximately 11,000 acres and 250 miles of shore line! If fishing is a priority for your group, Tim's Ford is well known as a great smallmouth bass and striped bass lake. Largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish are also plentiful. We can provide leads to local guides who can "put you on the fish".
