About The Owner

Dan and Betty Cogan are the proud owners of this home that is located on a working farm that has been in the family for generations. We are very excited to introduce and provide the opportunity to share the amazing property with others and look forward to long term relationships as we grow the property. Our goal is to provide you with the finest in southern hospitality. We are locals who can be there for any needs our guest may have. Your comfort and relaxation are our highest priority.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Bristol

With the amazing amount of river frontage, wooded areas and seclusion, this property is unmatched. We are here to provide the best experience for you on every level.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The home was built in 2005 and has recently undergone extensive restorations that make this property a perfect getaway. Traditional beams that were taken from timber removed from the property as well as sawed at the family owned sawmill are just one unique touch we are so proud to offer. Many decorations are taken directly from the farm which you will not find anywhere else. We want to share the history of the area, let you enjoy the breathtaking views, relaxation, world class fly fishing, and much sought after hunting while visiting our home.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. Clean, nicely decorated. The views are breathtaking. Owner could not have been nicer. Quick to respond to our questions. The river views and fire pit were a great memory spot for all. We will definitely be back. Just wish for King size bed in master. But that is just what we are use to. We felt right at home. We travel all over to meet with long distance family and this one goes down as one of our favorite. Love the surrounding farmland. A large slice of heaven.

What a comfortable and relaxing place to stay on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Dan and Betty,

We thoroughly loved staying at your home. The view was spectacular of the rolling hills of farmland. Although I didn't have much success catching trout on the South Holston River, there is a lot of great river frontage. The home is well-furnished and very comfortable. Thanks for providing us a restful getaway. We hope we can return next year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Reserve on South Holston is FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property!

The house was perfect. Extremely clean and well stocked, this house provides a wonderful retreat in Bristol. We sat on the back deck and enjoyed the lovely views.

The setting is AMAZING. When renting this property you have private access to the river as well as a beautiful fire pit right beside the river. Dan and Betty are the perfect host and hostess. They left snacks, a guide to the area and provided their personal phone numbers for any questions we had. We will DEFINITELY be renting this house again! Thank you Dan and Betty for a wonderful property.
