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!

Very Nice Cabin!
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!
Lake house vacation
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.
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.
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!
Thank you so for the kind words Peg and allowing our home to be the place you selected for your special day. Congrats!
Beautiful lake home...we had a very enjoyable weekend! We would definitely visit again!
I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves! Please come back and thanks for the kind words!!
Have to say our stay was just ok. Our vacation was geared to spending time with family in the area and a lot of fishing. Advertised 2 boat docks but one was already in use so had to dock 3 boats at one. The walk to the docks is very misleading, not at all in front of house and when carrying coolers and fishing supplies not an easy walk. The fire pit shown on the new patio, not there. No place for outdoor fire. Inside the home the walls are covered with private family photos to the point you had to be very careful in walking downstairs to not bump them. We and anyone visiting thought this distasteful. It's a nice home and large, but not family friendly.
I am sorry you felt that way regarding our family photos. In 12 years we have had many, many comments from guests saying that it added to their experience by making the cabin feel very homey. The VRBO ad should say that the cabin is our retirement home and we do use the cabin frequently to stay in the area, so the fact that family photos are within the space should not have been a surprise. I have been an interior designer and have owned my own business for 33 years, so I take great pride in how the cabin is designed and furnished. In regards to the dock, I did not know you were going to have three boats there. I am fairly certain that the web site asld to use whichever dock is available and did not promise there would be two open docks. Why not put two boats on each dock? Had you called, I would have gladly had my son in law, who lives 10 mins away, move the boat. The walk to the dock is not steep and I have had many elderly guests and guests with children find it very manageable. Again, never a critical response from a guest regarding that short walk. The site does not say the dock is directly behind the cabin. If that was an important feature to you I wish you had asked. We fish with rods and tackle boxes, have two children and two grandchildren under three with lots of items to carry for them etc., and it has never been a problem to reach the boat. Again, never a complaint.
You were the person I gave a special privilege to by allowing you to arrive on Friday. As you know the site states Sat to Sat. I was there at the cabin for Lakefest, so my husband and myself moved out of the cabin with our two grandkids and slept on my daughter's sectional, so you could check in on Friday.
In regards to there not being anywhere for a fire, that is just not correct. Many guests have had fires there, albeit in the winter. I am not allowed through my insurance to have a pit there, and with the temperatures as they were the week you were there, I am surprised you would consider sitting in front of a hot fire.
I find your issues minor, unfounded, and easily fixable. If they were important to you I am always a phone call away... I bend over backwards for all our guests as I proved initially by allowing a Friday check in. I personally cleaned the cabin for 7 hours prior to your arrival and it looked beautifully. If a picture(s) bothered you as you decended the stairwell, you could easily have removed it/them and put it/them back prior to leaving.
Great place for family time
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.
Please come back again. My husband and I really do enjoy sharing our home with guests! It sounds like ya'll had a great time!
