About Ada Hoyt

I grew up in Virginia and built this home as a retirement home. We currently live in Florida and aren't quite there yet, but really enjoy sharing our home with guests while we wait!

Ada Hoyt purchased this house in 2003

Why Ada Hoyt chose Clarksville

I absolutely LOVE Clarksville. The beauty of the Lake is breathtaking and the folks are some of the most hospitible I have seen. I chose this property to build the cabin on, because it is on a cove and gives you that private, cozy feeling my husband and I love to enjoy on our stays. The water view is beautiful, but the trees are equally being in a treehouse!

What makes this house unique

We had always loved log homes and wanted to eventually retire in one. I am an interior designer by profession, so the home was great fun to furnish by "antiquing" locally for some of the furnishings. We try to spend at least 3 months a year there, so it is our part time home as well. We have been so grateful over the last 12 years to the many guests that have treated our home as their own. The trees surrounding the log home allow you to really feel as if you are in your own large treehouse!

This is an honest review of this rental. This is a very nice property and the lake is beautiful. We enjoyed renting a pontoon boat for a few days and really enjoyed ourselves out on the water. My family was happy that pets were allowed. We did not order the linen package, but they were on every bed when we arrived. Couldn’t call anyone so we put them aside and used the linens we brought with us. Beds were not comfortable. A word of caution, both stairwells are lined with framed pictures. If not careful, they can easily be knocked off the wall by kids and adults alike. The kitchen has few plates so expect to run the dish washer about every day (We had 6 adults and 2 kids). Also essentially no kid appropriate cups were available and dining chairs are white cloth covered. Most of the bathrooms could use more places to hang towels to dry. None of the light switches are marked so it took us a while to figure out how to turn on the outside lights.

Note to anyone who potentially rents this house, do NOT expect to have a cell phone signal and there is no wifi provided. We didn’t expect wifi because it is not in the listing, however when no wifi is provided one would expect in 2018 that a cell signal is possible. There is a land line for any incoming calls and local outgoing calls. The owner claimed that the sitting area near the fireplace on the main floor could be used to make cell phone calls, but that is not the case. The company that set up the installed cell phone booster came out and verified this. Had the listing specifically stated that this is a dead zone, then there would be no expectation otherwise.

Great House, Great Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The house was very comfortable for our family and friends. We used the dock for our ski boat and had an awesome time skiing and tubing on the lake. The location on the Bluestone Creek section of Kerr Reservoir was great and off the main lake for great swimming and recreation. The hot tub had some issues while we were there, but Ada did a great job trying to get it fixed (it was fixed with a couple of days left on our rental) and she kept us in the loop on what she knew from the maintenance guys. Some may not like the lack of wireless signal access, but it didn’t bother us and was easy enough to get on daily trips to town. Overall, it was great experience and we loved it.

Unplugged and refreshed!

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and filled with everything we needed. So peaceful. I really enjoyed all the family photos and decorating style. It fit perfect for me and my four grown children, plus the infant granddaughter! We could be together but separate if we wanted. There was no wifi service that we found and cell service was sketchy, so we had a wonderful unplugged weekend!! I would definitely book this house again!

Great getaway for family or couples!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice log home located up a quiet cove not far from boat launch. Bedrooms and bathrooms on all 3 floors. Multiple TV’s, hot tub and dock!! Limited internet service. Plenty of parking available. Bait shop just down the road. Only thing missing is a pool table. Owners very good to work with. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all this is the place for you!

Great family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Property was beautiful! There was plenty of space for everyone to gather as well as plenty for us to get away and " settle down". The beds were luxurious and the hot tub glorious. The lake level was very high due to lots of rain prior to our visit, but we enjoyed it despite limited dock access (no fault of the homeowner). Would definitely recommend and rent again.

This property was a great choice for our long weekend getaway (with kids)!

  • 5 of 5

Ada is incredibly responsive and her home is beautiful. We visited with another couple and our toddlers- and the house was perfect. Every inch of the cabin is thoughtfully decorated and the kitchen is amazing! The kids loved the patio and firepit for making smores. We enjoyed a great little local winery while we were there (three sisters) and a beach/park -both within 15min of the property.

Great place to getaway and disconnect!

Berry Hill Plantation

Marveling at one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in Virginia as you travel up the tree-lined drive, you’d almost expect Scarlett to slip through the massive columns and glide down the stairs to meet you. Built in 1842, this eight-columned home is the quintessential southern antebellum mansion, once the seat of one of the most successful tobacco plantations in the region. Previous owners of the property included Colonel Edward Carrington, who fought alongside General Nathaniel Greene in the Revolutionary War. Berry Hill lay in ruins for nearly 50 years before being meticulously restored to its original pre-Civil War grandeur. Today, you can enjoy gracious southern ambience in one of Berry Hill Plantation. Located at 3105 River Road, South Boston, Virginia, 24592. (434) 517-7000

Buffalo Springs Wayside

The US Army Corps of Engineers manages this historic site, picnic area and artesian well. Water that sold for $5.00 for a dozen half gallon bottles in 1895 is free to all.

Directions: Seven miles west of Clarksville, just a 1/4 mile off US Hwy 58 West.

Clarksville Bridge Lighting & Night Fishing

Since Clarksville flipped the switch on 76 fishing lights on the Clarksville Bridge in March 2006, the bridge has been alive with night fisherman. Two rows of Hydro Glow lights were installed on each of the 19 bridge pylons, one row above the lake water and one below. Underwater lights attract millions of feeder fish, which attracts large game fish.
