About Christie Puckett

Hi! We are Joel and Christie Puckett! We love to travel and spend time with our family and enjoy the outdoors! We are owners of a small concrete construction company and Christie drives a school bus for elementary and junior high students. We are very active in our local church serving in a number of ministries! Joel has been involved with a local jail ministry for many, many years.

Christie Puckett purchased this house in 2009

Why Christie Puckett chose Byrdstown

We both grew up visiting Dale Hollow. 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 friends 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!

Dale Hollow Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed at Almost Eden. We will defiantly rent again. House is will equipped, comfortable master suite bed, plenty of room for a large family, has a great sun set view, 5 minutes to Sunset Marina. Best rental property we have stayed at in our 40 plus years of vacationing at Dale Hollow. Owners are great to deal with.

Great location for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 came from Knoxville, Nashville and east Texas for Thanksgiving and had a perfectly peaceful holiday. This is a clean, comfortable house with a terrific view of Dale Hollow Lake and plenty of deck/yard space for the grandkids to play. Just one little glitch as the kitchen refrigerator had gone out, but we made do with the 2nd fridge and the owner gave us a partial refund as compensation. Yes, we would stay here again.

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.
