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!

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!

Very Nice Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our first family get-together. Kids played downstairs & adults upstairs. First night didn't realize there was separate a/c unit for upstairs. There's wall to wall pictures of the owner's family which we thought was odd for a rental property. We had family coming & going all week since many live close by in So Boston. Loved the open floor plan upstairs. Hottub was fun. Docks & water access was good for fishing & boating except for red mud. Overall, our family was pleased!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our review is a bit overdue as we stayed Memorial weekend earlier this year. But as I search for vacation rentals for 2015 I realized we never left a review. We had a wonderful time at this cabin and it was exactly as described (and beautifully decorated). There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids) and there was plenty of room for all of us. We also brought our dog and 2 jet skis. We were blessed with beautiful weather and had a wonderful time skiing around the lake all weekend. The owner was very accommodating and while there were some strict rules, I imagine that's because there are some folks who unfortunately don't take care of other's property. The rules didn't seem unreasonable to us. The owner also returned our damage deposit (uncashed check) very promptly to us! We would definitely stay here again!

Lake house vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family vacation at this house. It was clean and comfortable. The location is really nice- right on a lake, woods, a lot of privacy. The one downside was the extensive list of rules with fines associated with them. We respect requests to maintain their home but it was unpleasant feeling like anything we did could result in a fine of up to $300. We couldn't even adjust the temperature on the hot tub which was not hot enough to enjoy.

Owner's Response: The fines are listed, as some folks would rather just pay the $50 than take the trash, etc.. There is no cleaning ever requested of our guests and the items listed: such as packing dishwasher, taking trash, etc.. are normal functions you would do in your own home...nothing out of the ordinary. The woman that cleans the cabin is in her late 60's, so I try to make it easy on her. In regards to the hot tub, a simple phone call and my maintenance man could have adjusted the temp, so there would be no reason to be unhappy with the temperature. I will say, I arrived at the cabin after this guest left and cleaned up long blonde dog hairs for two weeks. There was no mention of a dog during our conversations. The cabin pricing is within the normal range, so I did not offer the military discount she requested.

Charming Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay just a few days for our 25th wedding anniversary in this very warm, comfortable, and clean cabin. Nice lake view, the home and deck offer ample space for a much larger group, but we were able to feel cozy and comfortable, just the two of us! Ada was super responsive to any questions we had and we truly enjoyed our stay! Would definitely return and bring friends!

Great place for family time

  • 5 of 5

We spent four wonderful days as a family in this lovely home. Our daughter, who just graduated from college, our other daughter who was home from college, and our high-schooler all met here and had a wonderful time together: swimming, boating, playing pool, and hanging out on the deck. The kids swam right off the dock. My husband and I preferred to swim off the boat in the main lake. We rented a boat from a place in Clarksville. It wasn't cheap but well worth the money to enjoy a day on the lake.

The property and home are as beautiful as they are shown to be on this site. It was clean when we arrived and notes around the house helped us know and remember the owner's expectations, which were reasonable.

I would recommend this property for couples and people with older children.
