Guestbook comments from the owner

The seven of us have been friends for almost 60 years and went to school together. 5 of us from Ohio, 2 have been in Florida for over 20 years. We get together at least once a year. Had a great time here even tho it was cold & rainey most of the time. Enjoyed the beautiful home and view of the lake.

Great Home, Location and Owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described, the perfect lake home that exceeded the needs of our family and guest. The Kitchen is very warm and perfect for entertaining and family cooking. It had every type of pots and pans you could use... and we used just about everyone of them. The backyard porch was great as was the fire pit. Over all a very nice home. Everything was clean and functional in the home and the view is amazing. We hope to return to the home some day for our next vacation in Tennessee. Thank you Janice!

Perfect family lake retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for Labor Day weekend. Watts Bar area was new to us but the house looked perfect on VRBO and indeed, it was all we hoped for and more. Communication with the owner, Janice, was excellent start to finish. The house and property are really beautiful - I wish we had planned a longer visit because we could have spent days taking advantage of all the different areas. Our group included two couples, 3 kids ages 5,6 and 10 and one Grandma.

The house is immaculate. Very cute lake house décor. Plenty of space for everyone. Comfy bedrooms. Bright modern, spacious kitchen and main living area. If the weather hadn't been so beautiful, we would have gladly spent more time inside hanging out and playing games. We enjoyed coffee on the screened in porch each morning and family dinners on the huge deck each evening. Just couldn't ask for a better house.

The property - also just perfect. Large open spaces for the kids to play. Huge firepit space with lots of comfy seating. And a big sturdy dock overlooking a gorgeous lake view. Again we could have happily spent full days just hanging in the yard or on the dock. My son really enjoyed fishing from the dock every evening (and he caught a lot of fish!) The lake is stunning at sunrise - like glass, and so peaceful. At dusk, we saw deer swimming across! Awesome!!

We rented a pontoon boat from Blue Springs marina for the whole weekend - pricy, but the boat was brand new, spacious and perfect for exploring the huge lake. (Took about 30-45 mins to pilot the boat from the marina to the house, which was an adventure I know my son and husband will cherish forever!)

So now we know Watts Bar Lake! I can't imagine staying anywhere else for a lake vacation. Thank you, Janice for sharing this treasure!!

Great house layout and dock on quiet cove

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time to rent a lake house and this one was great. The large kitchen open to the living area allowed our 4 families to stay connected even while cooking, Good satellite TV for the Olympics in the evenings. The dock is large enough for our chairs. They have a beach umbrella on the dock and we added a 10x10 popup tent made it great during the day. The dock has a great view between two islands across the lake. We rented a pontoon boat at Piney Point Resort, older units but very close on lake to house. Used it two days and owner great on giving us pointers on the lake and neat places to visit like Sand Island and another swimming beach. As reported, the deer, buck and herd cross over from the island each morning and evening. With the stand up paddle boards, kayaks and canoe we brought and the lake floats at house, it made hanging around the dock and swimming and playing a great week. No reservations in recommending. Owner very helpful on any questions.

This is a very clean and well kept property.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. Every item that we could have possibly needed was available for our use. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and general state of the property and its dock. We really felt at home.

It was a bit more remote than we expected. Eating out was a bit of a challenge as well as shopping, golfing, etc. All of these amenities were available but were a bit of a drive. One of our guests wished there was more of a variety to watch on the TV.

We would definitely refer this property for anyone wishing to stay on Watts Bar Lake.

We had a great week enjoying being right on the lake. The house was well kept and very clean and had every amenity you could think of. Would highly recommend it for a quiet time on a lake.
