Beautiful Country Home Minutes from 3 Dale Hollow Lake Marinas

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled in the trees….envision a tranquil setting catching glimpses of deer and wildlife from a large deck overlooking a wooded hillside or from a rocking chair on a large front porch. Enjoy relaxing walks in beautiful Star Point Village or launch your boat to enjoy fishing or pleasure boating on pristine Dale Hollow Lake with clear water and 620 miles of shoreline.

Dale Hollow Lake was ranked as the #4 lake in the nation to “float your boat” by USA Today and is known as one of the best fishing lakes in the country. Dale Hollow Lake is the current WORLD recordholder for small mouth bass. If water isn’t your thing, there is golfing, antiquing, hiking, horseback riding, site seeing, historical sites and restaurants with home-style cooking within close proximity.

Shadowood is 3-bedroom/ 2 bath home (which sleeps 8) which is privately owned, beautifully decorated and abundantly furnished. There is a large great room area with a cathedral ceiling and lots of windows to enjoy the scenery. In the evening after your memorable day, have a barbeque on the deck with friends and family. There is plenty of flat area for parking multiple vehicles and your boat trailer. Our home is located just over a mile from Star Point Marina and short distances to Eagle Cove, Sunset and Wolfe River Marinas. Shadowood is ready for you to move in to relax, refresh, rejuvenate and enjoy your well deserved vacation time.

While only 2 hours from the cities of Nashville, Knoxville and Gatlinburg and 4 hours from Cincinnati, you can enjoy a step back into time by staying in the quaint Byrdstown area. Our family has fallen in love with the people, the scenery and the lake during the 25 years of visiting each summer. You will be glad that you made the decision to make Shadowood your lake home and will want to return time after time.

happy camper

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin. It was clean, comfortable and had all the comforts of home. The view from the deck was awesome. I have stayed in many cabins and condos and for the price, this was one of the nicest I have experienced. Also, the people that assisted us in renting the cabin were courteous and helpful.

Very clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Shadowoods as a last minute family boating get away. It was perfect! The house was very clean and well stocked. Kitchen had everything we could possible need. TV was great. Ummm.....mattresses we extra firm which was a negative for most of our family. The rental process was so easy and the agent was very helpful! Can't wait to go back!

Picture doesn't do it justice

  • 4 of 5

The listing and photos are accurate, but the house was much bigger than I expected--the photos don't do it justice. The property was clean and well-maintained. Questions and concerns were answered by a representative from the owners' rental agent who needs a better way to communicate when someone will be in the office so that the costumer can pay the bill. Other than that, they were easy to work with prior to our stay. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return ourselves. Caution to those with slight disabilities, though: The cabin doesn't have a walkway from the driveway to the house. There is a sidewalk from the house that leads to the road, but there is a difficult gap to negotiate in order to get up to the sidewalk. The cabin is well-appointed and very clean, and so, was worth the challenge (which wasn't bad after a couple of trips across the yard). We visited Dale Hollow lake for the first time--it was gorgeous and very close to the development! We also enjoyed Dixie Cafe in Byrdstown; it was wonderful!

Shadowood stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home decorated to welcome guests for a truly comfortable stay. Relaxing porch swing and spacious deck provide many opportunities for relaxing and enjoying the wildlife. Deer are abundant. Well equipped kitchen with everything one may need to prepare meals.

Couldn't have asked for anything more. Loved the laundry in the master bath; spoiled with warm towels right out of the shower.

Relaxing, beautiful setting, great family memories.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Your cabin has so much to offer. We loved the front porch rockers with our morning coffee. The back deck was a great place to chill out in the evenings. The open floor plan allowed for great family time. It has a very cozy, warm feel to it. Thanks for a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Dale Hollow.

Relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. My husband and I stayed here in July and loved the home. This home is decorated nice and it has everything you would need and more. There are other homes around but it feels somewhat private which is a PLUS for those needing some R&R. Good parking for those with boats. We have a 25 foot pontoon and had no issues with parking. The nearest marina is Starpoint and if availible they have overnight rental sliips,...we find the people there very nice. We saw many deer in the area and on one night eating dinner one came near the dining window looking in as though it was watching us. The rocking chairs on the front porch was a great way to start your day having your morning coffee. My husband liked the porch swing. The home also has a nice large deck on the back surrounded by woods. It's a nice area to take walks in the evening after diner. All in all we were very pleased and and felt very comfortable staying here. We are hoping to vacation here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and for choosing Shadowood for your vacation getaway. This type of feedback is why we enjoying sharing our home with others. We really enjoy being at Starpoint Village and all of the things you mentioned make us miss not being there ourselves. We try to provide the amenities that most anyone could need in an atmosphere conducive to rest and relaxation but if you have any suggestions of how to make your experience even better, please let us know. (Other than weather, we can't control that.) We do sincerely hope you will have the opportunity to come back to Shadowood in the near future. Thank you again.
