About Stephen Best

I met my wife when she was living here in 1983. Until last year we had rented this property monthly. Over the last year we have done major renovations, Refinished Oak hardwood floors, Tiled Bathroom and put in new Tub/Shower. New Kitchen Cabinets, Counter top and floor. New Windows.

Stephen Best purchased this house in 1980

Why Stephen Best chose Tennessee

This property was purchased as a Kayak store where the garage was the kayak shop. The building next to it was converted to a one bedroom.

What makes this house unique

You can hear and see the river from the front porch. The 4 seasonal changes brings a renewed excitement for being on the river.

Extended Stay.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I, senior citizens, enjoyed a relaxing 3 month stay at this facility. When we arrived the house was clean and everyting we actually needed was provided. We did not go into withdrawal without TV service and we found that after 30 years we had not forgotten how to wash dishes by hand. Shortly after we arrived, the owners remodeled a bed for our comfort which we greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the front porch and the surrounding scenery was beautiful and relaxing. Full time residents of the area are friendly and welcoming.This house is in one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from River Impressions. We were there for health and some R and R. We found this home to be perfectly suited for our needs and the environment. The owners were available and provided many recommendations. Our time exploring the scenic river and waterfalls near by was excellent and coming back to a home where the art displayed echoed this was serene. I also took part in the therapuetic services offered by the owners and this really was a boost to my health. I look forward to our next trip there.

Great stay, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a four-day stay at Steve and Lynda Bests' River Impressions property. The house was clean and comfortable and well cared for. Both Steve and Lynda made themselves available for any questions or problems but we had neither. My son and I both enjoyed sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs at night watching the lightning bugs and enjoying the quiet evenings. When we return to Tellico we will definitely book their property again. I would also refer any of our friends or family to stay at River impressions. Patrick P... Ocala, FL
