Bernard Via purchased this House in 2001

Why Bernard Via chose Bristol

Our dream home is located on a hillside with much in the way of natural beauty. The Lake is a wonderful forested mountain backdrop with a view from the hillside second to none. We have installed windows troughout to open you to clean fresh air in season(of course ac when needed). Decks exist for outside dining and barbecue on gas grill. Lots of steps will get your exercise during the week. We are near parks and hiking trails. You can enjoy historic trips to Jonesborough,Abingdon,Greenville,Bristol active downtown and country Music heritage.

What makes this House unique

Pontoon rental available through 3rd person. Bring your own boat or jet ski to use our dock for some lake fun and swimming. There are plenty of places around you can rent boats . Enjoy a beautiful clean lake to swim and fish. We are located near a national forest and the Appalachian trail biking on the Va. Creeper trail between Abingdon and Damascus is wonderful. I hope the weather is pleasant, as it usually is, but if not you will have many other activites to enjoy.

                                          We have many steps that need to be considered before renting. Recent modifications put the front door closer to street level to make access easier. However this house is build on a mountainside and is rather verticle in design with 4 levels inside the house.
                                        • wheelchair inaccessible
                                          WE have a serious issue with handicap access because of the elevation and house design. If steps are a problem the 4 story house sits 1 and 1/2 floors above the parking area before entering first level. Many steps to access the house and flors and to access the dock for boating.

                                                                  Very nice view,unique style home very spacious. It was a little dusty but nothing too bad. My family and I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend this vacation home ❤

                                                                  Didn't know I was cleaning the house

                                                                  Jamie R.

                                                                  I got charged for not vacuuming even though the paperwork at the house on check out procedure calls for sweeping (which we did) for the amount of money we spent I think it's crazy.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  It was a little more than just sweeping . there was a lot of food spilled under the ottoman and the dishes had to be rewashed as they were loaded without rinsing off old dried food. The next guest would not want food stuck on dishes.. There is a $69 cleaning fee which we waived all but $15 since the house was basically cleaned.

                                                                  Wonderful time with family!

                                                                  Andrea C.

                                                                  We had a wonderful time during our stay. Lovely home with lots of room. It does have ALOT of stairs that I couldn't really tel about from the pictures but that could be an issue for older renters and the dock is accessible across the road and down a lot of stairs. As long as stairs are not a problem this house is perfect for large groups!!!

                                                                  Melissa C.

                                                                  We loved the lake house very roomy and very nice . We loved being close to the lake and having our own dock . Our kids had a blast . Was our first time at South Holston and we loved it beautiful lake . We will be back .

                                                                  The LaRue's

                                                                  Nice older home close to the water

                                                                  Paula K.

                                                                  Owner was very easy to work with and grill had propane for outdoor cooking. So many of the houses we have rented promise propane but tank is always empty. House is well suited for teens and adults but not younger kids. Parking is very limited especially if you have a boat. Overall, house is just as it appears in the pictures. Decks were very nice.

                                                                  Everything you need

                                                                  Erica P.

                                                                  My family very much enjoyed staying in this house. It had plenty of space for us, there was absolutely nothing we needed besides food! It's in a great location and views are beautiful,and the cove was perfect for the kids to jump off the dock and swim. We rented a boat at a nearby marina and spent the day on the lake. It is gorgeous!! The only concern I had was the condition of the stairs going down to the lake, as long as you take your time you should be just fine. I'll definitely be back!!
