Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Byrdstown - Almost Eden

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Not your typical cabin! Modern home, sleeps 12, with spectacular lake views. Located in a quiet neighborhood just 10 minutes from Sunset Marina, the largest on the lake. Take a leisurely stroll from Almost Eden to the water's edge to fish, swim or just enjoy the serenity of beautiful Dale Hollow.

Almost Eden is the right choice for rest, relaxation and reconnecting. The open floor plan and many windows provide a comfortable yet homey atmosphere. The master suite has a king pillow top mattress with luxury bedding, deck access and attached full bath. The guest bedroom includes a queen bed, ample storage and an attached full bath. The loft suite has two twin trundles (sleeps four) and adjoins a spacious common area with two sofas, tv/dvd and another stunning lake view. The walkout basement has two comfortable futons, tv/dvd as well as deck access and a half bath. The basement is also home to Air Hockey, Fooseball, Ping Pong and board games making it the teen's favorite spot. The spacious kitchen has all stainless steel appliances and provisions for twelve guests. Whether you are looking to put together a quick meal after a day of boating or taking time to let your inner chef shine, you will find what you need! The washer/dryer area, adjacent to the kitchen, includes storage for your grocery items. The dining area seats six with four additional seats at the breakfast bar. A favorite dining area is on the deck where there is seating for 8. The deck also includes a stainless steel gas grill and the most gorgeous sunsets on the lake!

Nearby Byrdstown (10 minutes) has several restaurants, grocery store, fuel, boat repair, canoe rentals, etc.

Please come and enjoy our home. We have designed it with comfort and relaxation in mind. Looking forward to hearing from you.

About Christie Puckett

Hi! We are Joel and Christie Puckett! We have two teenage sons and live in Noblesville, Indiana. We love to travel and spend time oudoors. We are small business owners and Christie drives a school bus for elementary and junior high students. We are very active in our local church, serving as youth leaders for the last seven years. Joel has been involved with a local jail ministry for 14 years. Our other interests include hunting, fishing and motorcycling.

Christie Puckett purchased this house in 2009

Why Christie Puckett chose Tennessee

We both spent time on Dale Hollow prior to meeting. Our trips together began while were were dating and have continued on throughout our marriage. Our boys have been brought up coming to Dale Hollow and enjoying it's beauty and fun! We have rented everything from houseboats to cabins to homes. When we made the decision to purchase a home for ourselves Almost Eden was an easy choice. The house has a gorgeous view and is laid out to accommodate two families very easily which was a bonus for us since we have a large extended family and lots of friend who love the lake! We purchased it from the builder and have truly enjoyed making a perfect get-a-way for everyone to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things to do is have coffee on the main deck and enjoy the wide variety of birds that bustle in the tree tops just a few feet from the deck! Relaxing and catching sunset is also a highlight as each evening brings it's own unique gift for us to enjoy! The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. A morning walk will bring you into contact with many of the 'year rounders' as they are out making the rounds with their pets and keeping a watchful eye on the goings on! The house is only a ten minute drive to town and Sunset Marina so any needs that arise can easily be met by a short trip. We especially enjoy New Smyrna Church right across from the Dairy Queen. Good old fashioned preaching and singing!

Great vacation for a large family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a holiday weekend and loved the beautiful house, with more than enough room for our party of seven, with a well decorated and a fully stocked kitchen. The downstairs game room kept the kids entertained, and we loved the upper balcony with a great view of the lake and privacy on the lower balcony for reading or relaxing. It was a short drive to Sunset marina or into Byrdstown for dinner. Well maintained, roomy and comfortable accommodations. Thanks!

Beautiful, clean, and great views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Almost Eden for a long weekend and only wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was perfect. The house was amazingly spotless, something we highly value. The views of the lake and the sunset were gorgeous. Plenty of room for everyone and the house was well equipped. We all agreed we will most definitely be returning. Thanks for sharing your home.

Outstanding for our Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed July 16 to July 23 2016. This our 2nd stay and obviously we love the location, the view and the house. Clean, comfortable and close to Sunset Marina. Dale Hollow is a perfect lake for the type of boating and water sports we do. The view is wonderful off the decks in the morning and evening! Everything worked perfectly in the home and the owners are accessible and very pleasant to do business with. The house is very well equipped and decorated to make your stay great! We have already made reservations for next summer!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights at Almost Eden while down at the lake for a family reunion. The house was amazing and there was plenty of room for 7 adults and 3 children; never felt too crowded. The back patio was our favorite hangout spot with a great view of Dale Hollow Lake. Nice big kitchen and rec room in the basement. We will definitely be back!

Just returned from a week at Dale Hollow and our stay at Almost Eden. One of the best places we have stayed over the years, clean with plenty of room for 10. The best part was the amazing view. Thanks for providing a great vacation get away.
