About John Helm

Hi my name is John ,and I am the proud owner of this beautiful property. I live in Los Angeles , California with my wife and my son and 2 daughters . i work for the Public Works Dept. for the City of Bell Gardens (32 years) . I am an electrician by trade but I also deal with other projects that involve other disciplines .

John Helm purchased this lodge in 2007

Why John Helm chose Lexington

I was looking for a vacation home , preferably a house on a lake . We searched for about 6 months on the internet , but when it was all said and done ,we settled for the this gem on Pine Lake in friendly Tennessee. I actually found this property advertised on Ebay. We negotiated with the owners for about 6 months and finally came to terms. This is probably the best decision I have ever make in my life . We are truly blessed.

What makes this lodge unique

I guess that the best benefit of owning this home is that it gives us a chance to travel to a different place and meet new people . Also we have created some great memories with family and friends here and will continue for years to come.

Relaxing - gorgeous lake view; comfortable; spacious

  • 5 of 5

A great lake home with fantastic views of the lake. This home provided a great retreat for a long weekend and our dogs loved it, too. A miscommunication was resolved quickly. The beds are very comfortable and there are numerous places throughout the home to settle down and relax, inside and outside. We were in town for a memorial service and while the circumstances difficult, being able to relax in this home was comforting.

Excellent get away!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice area. Quiet and peaceful. House was clean with everything we needed except food. Town is only a short drive. Lake is beautiful. We really had a nice time. We locked ourselves out as we was about to leave and one of the children realized he had left his phone inside. Did not take long at all the overseer was there to let us in and he was extremely nice about it. Do recommend this property. Will stay again.

An escape

We loved staying in this home! There was plenty of space and a beautiful lake right outside. We lounged on the sturdy and spacious dock most of the day. I highly recommend!

Beautiful spot & home on a lake; very comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

My sister & I live in AR & IN, hadn't spent time together for 2 yrs, & this home was the perfect place and area to meet. The location and lake view are spectacular; home nicely furnished and beds very comfortable; even had milk & eggs in the fridge! Plan to meet my sis at this home again! It's a 2 story home, and getting up/down the stairs was a challenge as I have knee problems, so we just stayed at the upper level, which is where the kitchen and "VIEW" are. Thanks to John for making his home available.

South Florida meets Tennessee!

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was just what our South Florida family needed to get some much needed rest and relaxation. Visiting our son at Freed-Hardeman University and spending the Holiday at the house was convenient, picturesque, and most importantly of the highest quality. One of the highlights was my kids seeing their FIRST snow! We plan to make a return visit! April was a wonderful host as well!
