About the property

3 Bathrooms, 3 Bedrooms, 8 Sleeps

Our vacation home at Dale Hollow Lake is just 2 minutes away from Sunset Marina (the best marina on the lake), and is tucked away in a peaceful wilderness setting providing a relaxing “cabin in the woods” feeling. Our home is complete with 2 private bedrooms, a large loft kids suite with 2 twin beds, and a lower recreation area with a mini bar and a set of twin bunk beds allowing you to very comfortably accommodate 8 guests. The main floor has a fully furnished kitchen, a breakfast bar with bar stool seating for 4 and a separate dining table for family meals. You will also find hardwood floors throughout the main level, wood plank ceilings, a laundry room with washer and dryer, central heat and air. The home also boasts 3 full bathrooms, one attached to the master bedroom, another on the main floor connected to the main living area, and another on the lower level right next to the 2nd bedroom. All of this, plus a covered front porch and a 2-story wrap-around deck overlooking Dale Hollow Lake!! Both the main level and the lower level provide multiple glass-pane doors for easy access to nature. The decks are outfitted with rocking chairs, a picnic table, bar table, gas grill, charcoal smoker, and an outdoor fire pit.

Make this your vacation getaway and be sure to bring your boat, jet skis,etc. to have the full, Dale Hollow Lake experience! Don’t have your own water toys? You can rent these amenities at Sunset Marina.

Crystal clear Dale Hollow Lake, nestled in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains with 620 miles of shoreline and 48 square miles of surface area, is a boater’s paradise! It is widely considered one of the cleanest lakes in the United States with very little of its shorelines developed, leaving the shores pristine with natural beauty. A full range of lake water sports and activities are available close by including fishing, waterskiing, boating, scuba-diving, jet-skis, swimming, and hiking. There are numerous and varied species of fish, including some of the best sustained bass population in Kentucky and Tennessee.

Why Chris Lytle chose Tennessee

Our family of 5 rented this house on our 1st two trips to Dale Hollow Lake and we fell in love with it! We had such a wonderful time that we had to buy the place!! We hope that others will have the same great experience and make lasting memories just like we did!

Wonderful getaway - perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and had such an enjoyable stay. The cabin has a perfect lookout over the trees and the lake. We were able to catch the start of the trees turning for fall and the weather dipped into the 30s. All in all, it our stay exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

Great house! Great view! Close to Sunset Marina makes this an awesome place to stay at.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with 2 large decks that face the lake. Whether it was eating breakfast or reading a book in the evening the view never got tiring. The fire pit was nice and we had campfires every evening. The beds were comfortable and the house has beautiful wood flooring and trim. It was a great stay!

Fantastic lake-view home surrounded by woods and close to Sunset Marina!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home, perfectly suited for our families' vacation to Dale Hollow Lake: two adult couples and 4 children ranging in ages (10, 9, 7 and 7 -- 1 girl, 3 boys). There was plenty of space for all of us, and even when it was raining and we couldn't be out on the Lake, we could hang out in the family room/dining area or outside on the deck(s). There is easy access to house off the main road and drive over to Sunset Marina (minutes!) where there are plenty of boat rentals, a big store, a restaurant, ice cream shop. This is a very clean house (and we are picky/almost OCD-types). The main level has the master bedroom (queen bed) with ensuite bath (loads of space in the closet), another full bath with the laundry "room" as part of it, the kitchen, a small dining area and family room. For dining, the kids usually sat at the table and we sat on the bar stools at the counter. Plenty of room; we just weren't sitting at the same table. Kitchen is large, TONS of space in the cabinets and on the counter and well-lit. Well stocked for cooking needs, though some of the pots/pans were not in best condition. The refrigerator is a side-by-side but we were still able to fit a lot of our groceries/perishables without too much problem. Lots of windows in the house; so it feels well-lit and spacious. The views of the Lake are great, enough to remind you that you are just minutes away. The upstairs loft is very spacious: two twin beds and a bunk with a double on the bottom. Plenty of play space for the kids up there. The lowest level has a separate bedroom (double bed, and though small, it was one of the most comfortable "rental" beds I've slept on recently), a decent closet for storage, the full bathroom is shared with the play/game room -- a set of bunk beds is down there and 2 of the boys slept there and made it their "cave" when we were there. Lots of room -- they even have a foldable poker table, but we never used that. There is a mini fridge at the wet bar. The decks are awesome: upstairs has a picnic type table, benches and several tailgate chairs -- we hung out here quite a bit as it is right off the family room/kitchen and has the better view of the Lake. The downstairs deck is very large; we were able to bring and play corn hole there. They also have a fire pit, but we never used it (maybe in cooler months). Again, plenty of space for all! This home is ideal for two families, 8-10 ppl at most. We LOVED this house; can't wait to visit again.
