Log Home On Two Acres, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Two Fireplaces, Large Bar
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 so.....like 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!

We had a wonderful vacation at your cabin. Very relaxing and enjoyed the water.
Thank you so much for enjoying our home! Please return anytime!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. However, we did miss having phone service and WiFi. We were aware of this ahead of time so this was not the property manager’s fault. On the down side, we discovered it is not senior friendly and we did run across two snakes directly around the house.
So glad you enjoyed our home!! I will respond to your few points:
There is WiFi at the cabin, and haven't had any issues with it this summer, but will certainly check on that. The password is on the counter, as well as on the site, so if you connected to it, you should have been good to go!
We have had many seniors there over the last 15 years, including my 85 year old mama. She stayed in the master bedroom on the main floor with the bath in the adjoining room. There are stairs there, and they are pictured and listed on the VRBO site.
Yep, there are woods on both sides of the cabin and yep, it is summer, so there may be a snake or two! I hope I never see one though! LOL
Please come back!
We had a very peaceful week in a beautiful home.
Thank you Jessica! It was our pleasure to host you and your family! We are so glad you enjoyed our home and please come back!
Beautiful home and setting. Owner was responsive when contacted.
We are so happy you enjoyed our home! Please return anytime! :))
We enjoyed our week! The house is beautiful and the location is wonderful! Will definitely be renting again!!! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
Thank you so much for the kind words and consider this an invitation to stay at our home anytime! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves!
Great property and location. Loved everything about it but the Internet Service. That was sub- par and hardly high speed, but the property itself was very nice. If you want to unplug, you can't do much better.
Thank you for the kind words. I am surprised regarding the internet reception. We were there for three months and left on May 8 and it was working great. Thank you for letting me know, as it was newly installed in March. I can only guess that since it worked perfectly the three months we were there, that the position of the satellite must have been compromised. We even have a booster to maximize the strength, I will definitely call them on Monday to come out and have a look. And again, thanks for the heads up!
Ada Hoyt UPDATE ON THE INTERNET SERVICE.....I CALLED HUGHES YESTERDAY AND THEY SAID THAT FOR A BUSINESS TO BE ABLE TO REALLY WORK ALL DAY THAT THE MAIN MODEM SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PUT IN THE BASEMENT. THEY ARE COMING OUT ON THE 6TH OF JULY TO MOVE IT TO THE MAIN FLOOR. WITH THE 5 GENERATION/25 MBPTS PLAN WE ARE ON THEY SAID I SHOULD HAVE PERFECT SERVICE. AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KNOW! REGARDS, ADA HOYT

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.
