About James Rogers

I own several local businesses. I love water sports especially fishing. Our family loves weekends together at our lake home.

James Rogers purchased this house in 2002

Why James Rogers chose Sale Creek

We loved the lake, boating and fishing, so we built our dream home on the water. We use the home for vacations and weekend getaways, but we also love to travel. So we have decided to share our home so you can enjoy the lake as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

If you love to fish, we have set up lights under the dock to attract the fish. The dock will cover 2 24 foot boats, with unlimited places to tie up other boats. Lots of decks and patios so no matter how many people are enjoying the home, you can get some privacy. Theater room with projection TV. Almost every room in the house has a view of the lake. Open living, dining and kitchen let you enjoy games, TV and eating all in one space. EPB high speed fiber optic internet and cable TV.

Just a group of guys getting away from it all to hang out and fish. House was perfect, had so many accommodations that we only got to enjoy a few, wish we had more time off. Great place and highly recommend. Owner is definitely one of the best. James thank you very much and I hope to rent again from you.

Great place for our family to gather for a wedding in Soddy Daisey.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lakeside home with spacious rooms, comfortable bedrooms and multiple seating areas. Well stocked kitchen with lower level fridge and kitchenette. We love the comfortable atmosphere and weren't looking for Hilton style accommodations. The only small issue was the owner not responding to efforts to reach him while we were there. Needed parking advice and figured it out anyway. He was very responsive before we arrived. Would definitely stay there again

Lovely place to see the Fall foliage and we heard the fishing there is great!

Perfection? Quite possibly!

  • 5 of 5

Not a single complaint or regret about our stay. House was even better than the pictures! Lots of space inside and more space outside than we imagined. Our favorite part was the cleanup and checkout process: By far the simplest and least stressful of any vacation rental we've ever used! We were in town for Ironman Chattanooga, but we're likely to be repeat renters just for a fantastic vacation in the future. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We started renting our home to make some extra money to pay for the expenses of ownership. Soon we learned that we were also providing a an opportunity for friends and family to get together, live together, celebrate together, in an oasis beside the beautiful Tennessee River. A review like this provides me with the feedback that I need to constantly make this Retreat better and better for each guest. There is personal satisfaction in helping familes enjoy the limited time that they have to get together. Life, love and friendship is a precious thing. Thank you very much for your kind words. You have made my day. It is a priveledge to serve your group.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My large family had a great time. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their space and plenty of space to spend time together. The flat yard is unique for the area; it's great for our little kids and grandparents. There is a lot of shade making it very comfortable to spend a lot of time outside without baking in the summer sun. My wife loved the huge tub in the master bathroom. The dual refrigerators are VERY convenient. We highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Wow. Thank you for recognizing the wonderful aspects of this property. We can handle a very large group easily. I would only add that we have the best view of the TN River from almost every room.

Great house, great lake, wish the clouds stayed away

  • 4 of 5

We had our family reunion, 15 of us, last week and had a great time. We loved the space the house gave us when we needed it but also gave great areas to congregate together. It was peaceful, beautiful views and loved have the fishing dock and a boat for the week. We rented from Harbor Lights marina. We didn't realize how long of a boat ride it would be to and from the marina - so plan accordingly for your "3 hour tour"!! We enjoyed the small town feel of Dayton and going into Chattanooga. We bought a few items to help stock the kitchen that were lacking for the next folks. We would love to return in the future!! Thanks for a great time.

Owner's Response: Almost 50% of our guests are return customers. This is truly a vacation home. Not a house that is rented out for visitors. We truly appreciate this guest and their positive comments.

property 450451, Lake Chickamauga tn.

  • 4 of 5

First of all, there were 15 of us and the accommodations were perfect for our family.Having multiple patios,porches and living rooms gave people plenty of space to spread out. We had some rain days but we just played board games,fished off the covered dock and never missed a beat. We rented a 30 foot pontoon boat from harbor light marina and I will strongly recommend that you have a boat, we fished, swam and cruised , It was great. Only one negative and I have addressed that with the owners staff, who have assured me things would be corrected. The out side area, porches, patios, windows were very dirty and needed cleaning. There was some wood rot on several stairs that needed fixing. Also needed fire extinguishers by all gas fixtures (grill,stoves) we had a grease fire on the grill, due to an accumulation of old grease and no extinguisher was available. This was being corrected upon our leaving. I can't say enough about how responsive the maintenance manager was when I called. Came down immediately and got to work. Would I come back? You bet, great location, good fishing and lots of wild life. Great swimming for our grand-kids as it is only 4-5ft deep off the dock. I recommend water shoes as the bottom is a bit rocky.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the comments from this guest. We have addressed the couple of issues with new wooden steps and we have changed the procedures on the grill. Guests use and abuse the large built in gas grill. We are now asking our guests to clean the grill after heavy usage. It is working great. Many guests use this grill twice daily for some heavy duty meals. It is great for that, but it needs to be cleaned after usage, just like the kitchen. We truly appreciate the comment regarding responsiveness. We have a manager that lives 200 yards away and is on top of the repairs and maintenance when we are notified.
