About the property
- House4000 sqft
- Half Baths1
- Minimum Stay3 - 6 nights
Large enough to host family reunions, church retreats, and small weddings.
Mariner's View is located next to Stone's View(VRBO# 572667); owning both properties enables us to offer our guests the option of a 14 bdrm stay experience to comfortably accommodate up to 34 for family gatherings or corporate events.
The location is convenient yet private. Located 125 yards from main street downtown, 1/2 mile to the area's grocery store, and a 1/4 mile from the marina and public boat ramp.
The house offers a panoramic view of Douglas Lake with the three highest peaks of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in the background, and a back yard that extends down to the lake. The back deck and patio are great areas to entertain a large group or just relax with a book and take in the view.
Dandridge is a mix of old and new, we have tried to accomplish the same at Mariner's View. Our goal was to keep the charm of this 1930's home with all the modern amenities to create a truly special place. There are three large gathering areas for entertaining, two kitchens, a 1,200 sq ft patio area (520 sq ft of the patio is covered), and a 550 sq ft deck off the living room area.
The home offers seven bedrooms that can comfortably sleep 17 and 5 full bathrooms and 1 half bath. The home has two master suite bedrooms with en-suite baths. The entire home has been professionally decorated with many luxury upgrades.
For the chef, the kitchen is well equipped with new and convenient appliances and cookware. There is plenty of capacity with two ranges and two refrigerators.
The best Mariner's View has to offer is the inner peace and joy you'll experience seating on the deck or patio watching the birds catch their lunch, the occasional deer and turkey grazing, or maybe a glimpse of bald eagles that nest in the area. We hope you visit us and experience the unique qualities of the Great Smokey Mountains, Douglas Lake, and historic Dandridge at Mariner's View.

Why Kent Maples chose Dandridge
Dandridge exemplifies small town USA; it has a proud, unique historic past and is protective of its heritage. My wife and I love to take walks; we're entertained by the cities nuances and in awe of the lakes natural beauty. We find it very convenient to have two marinas within 1.5 miles to rent various kinds of boats and accessories. The public dock and boat ramp is less than a mile away for those who have their own water craft.
What makes this House unique
Mariner's View has been totally renovated to offer spacious gathering areas for large groups and special events; as well as, the property offers private places to experience special views and share intimate moments. We have hosted many lovely weddings, family reunions, special wedding anniversaries, church and corporate retreats, and memorable family vacations. Dandridge is a quaint and historic lakefront town. Mariner's View has one of the best views on the lake which creates a serene environment to enjoy and create memories.

Beautiful, spacious home.
My family had an amazing experience. Kent and Cathy's home is an exceptional property. It's a well-maintained home with great amenities. Each room had it's own little touch of beauty. The kitchen had everything we needed to have a great Christmas dinner experience and the view was amazing. We will definitely be back. I will be hosting my first guest in my home in New Orleans in a few days and the experience in this home has shown me how to better prepare my home in a beautiful and thoughtful manner. We had a blessed holiday season in Kent and Cathy's home in Dandrige!
Really enjoyed our friends and family retreat at this beautifully appointed home. You can tell the owner has given special attention to detail. The views of the lake were beautiful especially in the morning.

Our home is located in the historic City of Dandridge overlooking Douglas Lake. Being Tennessee's second oldest city, you will find that Dandridge has its fair share of history. Dandridge was named in honor of our country's first First Lady, Martha Dandridge Washington. It is a National Historic District. The city's most iconic building is the Jefferson County Courthouse. It was completed in 1845 in Greek Revival architecture. This is one of the many historic buildings you can see from our front porch. Four of the original taverns highlight the walking tour of the historic district. Dandridge provides a delightful mixture of old and new. The courthouse contains a free museum displaying historic artifacts from many area of Jefferson County. Maybe one would prefer a carriage ride of the historic district based from a cafe where you can also utilize their high-speed wireless internet connection. Tinsley-Bible Drug Store is celebrating their 104th anniversary. This old fashioned drug store takes you back to “when times were great”. Guests are served breakfast and lunch at their old fashioned soda fountain counter and booths; just across the bridge from down town you'll find a full service marina that allows guests to rent boats, wave runners, skis and more. ESPN hosts two fishing tournaments each year that validates the lake's great reputation for fishing. From your house, walk down town to hear free concerts from local artists as well as buy locally grown produce at the farmers market on Saturdays. The Nation's most visited National Park is just minutes away including Pigeon Forge which offers Dollywood theme park and water park, the second largest outlet center in the US (Tanger Outlets), plus much much more.
