About Donn Claiborne
Proprietor of ClaiHill Farm. Former Real Estate Agent and family business owner (aggregate industry). Currently I am focusing on making ClaiHill a superb vacation home and event venue.
Donn Claiborne purchased this Estate in 2014
Why Donn Claiborne chose La Follette
My grandparents purchased the property in 1942. It was named by grandmother using her married name (Claiborne) and maiden name (Hill), thus ClaiHill was established. Russ and Miona raised their two children in the home and lived there all their lives. After my grandmother's passing in 2013, I purchased the home from the estate in 2014. Renovation began in 2015 and has finally concluded. This will be our first year hosting.
What makes this Estate unique
The property is located about 10 mins from the nearest marina on Norris Lake and at the foot of the Cumberland mountains. The house sits on 2.5 acres and is surrounded by an additional 38 acres all inside the city limits of LaFollette. This makes the house very centrally located yet still very private and picturesque. All modern conveniences internet, Satellite TV, smart TV's in every bedroom and throughout the house. The front yard is vast with beautiful trees and plenty of shade. The grand back porch looks out through the field.

We had our wedding here and it was perfect. Donn helped us out tremendously and was there every step of the way to make our wedding perfect. I highly recommend anyone and everyone to stay here. The house and property are beautiful.
Beautiful, Amazing and Peaceful
This home made for such a special holiday with our family. The home is amazing, warm and inviting. We had plenty of room to comfortably host Thanksgiving dinner and kids had an amazing yard space to run in.
This home is the perfectly updated to create a truly relaxing experience!!!
Thank you so much for being such fantastic guests! I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and property and that it made for a fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday!!! I hope you will think of us again and let your friends know about us.
Excellent Family time and a beautiful home.
The house was just as described. It was a true delight to spend a weekend here with 6 family members. There were no issues with anything in the home and the owner would go out of his way to make sure all your needs were met. We spent 70% of our time either in the wonderfully supplied kitchen or on the beautiful porch on the back of the home. It was surprising because we travel frequently and carry some staples with us in the car (we are foodies)such as GOOD knifes ..... there was no need here - everything in kitchen was great quality. The porch was truly a relaxing area. It didn't hurt that the TV over the fireplace supplied us with the college games we wanted to see, but we were lucky enough to watch the 3rd and 4th games of the World Series. We will definitely be back here, it was such an easy drive for all of us with each member of the family coming from a different state. We had a wonderful time! Thank you, Donn.
Debbie and Family,
It was my pleasure to have you as my guests. I've been very fortunate to have had the most excellent guests. Great people that give good feedback I take good care of the house. Not to mention the fact that so far everyone has absolutely been satisfied with great suggestions that I take into account. I look forward to you and your family coming back and I certainly hope that you recommend ClaiHill to others. it was my pleasure to meet you and your spouse and your brother and his spouse on only sorry that I missed meeting your sister and her spouse. I look forward to seeing you again at ClaiHill Farm!

Dream House in the Country
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at ClaiHill. Donn was the perfect host and the house is truly impressive. When you walk into the home, it looks like you are stepping into the pages of a magazine. No detail was left untouched. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, pots/pans, plates, utensils you could ever need. The living room, dining room, sun porch, even the hallways, are lovely.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful. High quality linens and fabulous towels. There is even nice soap and shampoo in all the bathrooms. And lots and lots of extra linens! If you need a blanket, pillow, towel, you don't have to look far.
The best part of our visit was spending time outside on the back porch. Daytime was spent reading books and looking out at the pretty landscape. Nighttime was spent with a fire and watching football on the outdoor TV. We had our kids with us and Donn purchased some games and a great portable ping pong net. The kids played ping pong on the porch for hours. Donn even had extra blankets in the living room for use on the porch. They are all rolled up in a basket and perfect for a cool evening.
Donn stopped by in the evening to tell us the history of the home. It made our stay extra special. We will be back next year - I just wish I had more reasons to visit the area and stay at ClaiHill more than once per year.
I could not have asked for better guests! Jen and her family and friends were wonderful! Everything in the house was left perfectly clean and tidy. They were self sufficient in finding all the things they needed. More importantly, they were welcoming to me. As a host, I love getting to know my guests and they were so kind to have me over to visit and talk about the house and learn about them. I hope to have them back and would be thrilled with anyone they recommended. Good people know good people. I appreciate Jen's glowing review and I must say she and her family and friends were excellent guests!
