Paradise Found has been completely renovated from top to bottom with an attention to detail to make your stay very comfortable. Its clean, casual design is like a breath of fresh air which will have you saying “ahhhh” the moment you enter, with water and mountain views from almost every room! The large open concept living, dining, kitchen area is a great gathering space for your family and friends. The kitchen is very spacious and is well stocked with small appliances, cookware, spices and utensils. A separate bar area houses a wine refrigerator, coffee station and sink where you can prepare your favorite libation before heading out onto the covered deck to take in that Million Dollar view. This main level also has two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The downstairs is a wonderful entertainment area with lots of comfortable seating, a big flat screen TV with surround sound speakers, the Sunday Ticket so football fans don't miss a game, a gaming table, foosball, board games and puzzles for all ages, and yes, a pool table for us big kids! The great room provides yet another incredible view of the lake and mountains, with access to the lower level patio where you can lounge and enjoy the views while getting some sun. On this lower level there is a third bedroom with ensuite bathroom; as well as a half bath and laundry room. The terraced back yard is connected by stunning staircases that are beautifully lit at night. The property is conveniently located off of I-40 and is close to local restaurants, small shops and grocery store. If you can pull yourself away from the lake; Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville, Knoxville and Bristol are all 25 – 75 minutes away where you can spend the day shopping or touring the attractions they have to offer. A stones throw away is Smokey Stadium where the guys can catch a Chicago Cubs Minor League baseball game or do some shopping of their own at Bass Pro Shop. There are also 3 golf courses close by so bring your clubs!

Now the fine print… This property is not “child proof” and is not recommended for families with children under the age of 8. As a courtesy to guests with allergies, smoking is prohibited in and on the property; and, while we are pet lovers, pets are not allowed no matter how small or well behaved.

About Donna Keller

We grew up in South Florida and moved to East Tennessee a few years ago. We currently live in Dandridge not far from Paradise Found.

Donna Keller purchased this house in 2014

Why Donna Keller chose Dandridge

After 50+ years in South Florida we found that it just was too "crowded". Most folks ask why we moved from South Florida to Douglas Lake. Ironically they answer their own question once they visit Douglas Lake... We searched for 6 years around the Douglas Lake area and found that this waterfront property was one of the handful that have an incredible view of both lake and surrounding mountain ranges.

What makes this house unique

Aside from the obvious lakefront and mountain views, this property has easy access to I-40 and is strategically located for day trips to surrounding tourist destinations.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property do not do it justice. This is by far the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Sometimes the pictures of a property look amazing and you show up at the house and you are disappointed. This property is even nicer than the pictures. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. It has every luxury you could ever want.

The lake views are amazing from every front window and from the deck and patio. I would recommend you bring binoculars for your stay as there are all kinds of birds in the tress and on the lake for you to see.

Just an overall excellent experience. Donna, the owner, was wonderful, too. We will be back next year!

Exceptional in all ways

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely outstanding experience! 10 of 10. All aspects of our time there exceeded what we could have asked for. The home was perfect in every way for our family. Clean, accommodating, and perfectly arranged. The furnishings were beautiful and thought out. The view truly majestic and the lake was amazing. We fell in love with the place upon entering the driveway and plan to return annually. Donna is truly a friendly and gracious kind soul that gave our experience a warm personal element. She made sure any questions, inquiries, or needs were met. We are truly grateful and blessed to have had the experience and will be repeat vacationer's!

We stayed for 8 days and was on the lake over half of them. The home was beautiful and well maintained. There was a marina 5 minutes away and the people were very friendly. We returned home approximately 24 hours ago and we miss it already. Thank you for a very different Tennessee experience this year. We look forward to coming back. Can not wait to meet you and your husband next time. Take care. Alicia Z-Y

Amazing home and scenic view

  • 5 of 5

The house was is perfect shape and very clean. The homeowner takes pride in her work and it shows in the detail for this home. The view and surroundings is ideal if you're looking for a perfect getaway in the smokes. The pictures for this house don't give it any justice. It's a huge wide open floor plan with all the games, entertainment and fun any family or couple could ask for. Highly recommend!

Perfection in every respect!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of eight from the UK (4 adults and four teens) who have been coming to the Smokys' for the past six years. As soon as we saw "Paradise Found" on Home Away, we knew that this was the spot for our vacation. Donna was wonderful to deal with, always responding to inquiries promptly - she is extremely affable and personable and put us at ease that we had chosen the right location.

No amount of photographs could have prepared us for what we encountered when we arrived! Donna was waiting for us on the doorstep of the freshly painted house and greeted us like long-lost friends - we felt that we had known her for years! As we stepped into the house, we gasped with delight.......the house is absolutely out of this world. The photographs on the website can never replace the reality of what you will experience - every aspect of this house is sheer perfection! Where to start? The whole house has has been totally remodelled and re-furnished in a fresh, light contemporary style and Donna has captured perfectly the "feel" of water-side living and her choice of color and accessories are excellent. No expense has been spared with the quality of the furnishings, the kitchen is simply to die for, equipped with absolutely everything needed to cook the most extravagant of meals - during our stay we cooked traditional English Sunday dinner for a party of 10! The whole house was spotlessly clean. It is light and airy and flows from room to room beautifully - the downstairs "great room" was wonderful for our two 16 year olds - one slept on the murphy bed , the other on a very comfortable sofa bed. Donna had thought of everything, equipping the great room with a pool table/table tennis table, games and a karaoke machine (yes, we did use it!!!). Although the house is quite simply the best that we have ever stayed in, the star of the show has to be it's position -I'm sure Donna must have heard us screaming with delight when she left us alone on that first afternoon! The views from all rooms but particularly the deck is wholly breathtaking - we could have sat out there for ever, we were all totally mesmerized by the view of the lake and mountains, the scene changing with each day we stayed. What a fun vacation - we hired pontoon boats from a couple of nearby Marina's, docked at "Cowboys" for lunch (good friendly services) and swam in the lake. Donna, "thank you" seems insufficient for our spectacular stay at your house - we WILL be back!!!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to finally meet you and your "clan"! That first day I could have stayed for hours chatting with you all but tore myself away so you could begin enjoying your vacation. We strive to exceed our guest’s expectations of their vacation lodging and it sounds like we succeeded in doing so for you. Thank you for your glowing review and I look forward to your next visit!
