Lakefront Hideaway With Private Dock

Bedrooms 1
Space 393 sq. ft.
Property type recreational vehicle
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Can sleep 6

This is a park model RV but to see it, both inside and out, you wouldn't think it was anything but a cool place to stay. Charter TV and high speed WiF and, Surround sound. Beautiful place to relax, swim, fish, boat.

There is a comfy queen bed in the bedroom with a smart TV in case you want to check the weather (almost always partly cloudy with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms, lol), drawers and a large closet for your things.

Upstairs in the loft are 2 very comfy twin beds. This is a kids dream since it's NOT tall enough for adults to stand up. They can be up there and still be a part of what's going on below.

The couch pulls out to make a bed and there is a foam topper behind the couch to help with comfort.

This is a normally very quiet neighborhood with only 12 homes, all on the lake side of the road. The other side is a mix of forest and hay fields. A quiet walk along the road in the mornings or evenings will often let you see the local deer grazing.

*Important note about Boone Lake... The water levels are low this year due to work being done at the dam. I apologize in advance and we hope to be back to normal soon. Our dock, along with most all of the lake, is on dry land. There is still plenty of water, just not our normal gorgeous lake.

*Since this is a Park Model RV the water heater is 10 gallons. With the low flow shower head you can get a nice shower with no problems but back to back showers would need to allow about 30 minutes in between. The shower is small but I'm 6' and it works fine for me.

This unit is NOT child proof and is not suitable for children 5 and under. I do not charge a cleaning fee. Help me keep it that way by cleaning up after yourself. If you break or damage something please let me know and arrange for its replacement or repair.

There is an external surveillance camera for property protection.

Check in is 3 PM, check out is 11 AM.

About Ken Forgie

Nearing retirement while working for a large school system in North Carolina. I'm a partially disabled ex firefighter from California. I'm a musician, a boater and a floater.

Ken Forgie purchased this recreational vehicle in 2000

Why Ken Forgie chose Boone Lake

This Lakefront Hideaway is my refuge. I come here to relax, recharge and get away from the daily grind. I love the peaceful location and calming views.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

If you look straight across the cove you'll see an estate owned by a partial owner of the Miami Dolphins. Look a little left near the flag pole and you might see his private helicopter landing to bring arriving guests.

Cute little cottage by the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. This park model is small but we knew that when renting it. Perfect for a couple for a weekend getaway. It is very quiet there.

We are from California and were there for a week to check out the area as we are considering moving to Tennessee. The only drawback for us in that regard was that it is a bit remote which is perfect for a quiet vacation but not when you are looking for homes😉?. Ken was a great host and we appreciated his getting back to us in a ttimely manner in answering any questions we had. It might be a bit small for a family but perfect for a couple.

Nice place. Very kid friendly!

  • 4 of 5

The place was everything we could have hoped for. A little disappointing about the lake level being so low, but that's out of the owners control, of course.

Great place and great owner.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend and we fell in love. The view is great and the cabin is perfect for two people. Its definitely away from everything which was perfect for us. Ken was awesome and so nice to work with. Overall, we were completely satisfied with our stay and plan to be back soon!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful mini vacation. It was relaxing and fun. The atmosphere was great. Ken was great and replied to every question I had. The only disappointment that he had no control over was that the lake was very very low. All those docks with no water was so sad looking, cant wait till they get them fixed.

peaceful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property. My nephew lives in the area so we were able to cook out and have a nice visit. Had deer right up by the firepit. We saw a fox on the rocks down by the water. Beautiful sunsets. Owner is great to work with.

A plus

  • 4 of 5

Great little hide-away. Easy access to a lot. Little scary going back in, worried your not in the right place, but directions are great. It's a shame the pool is low, but still a great location. Glad I choose here opposed to a hotel. Major plus dog friendly, enough room to play fetch with the dog.
