About Bonnie

Over 30 years ago I met my husband Greg. Before we were married he brought me to Dale Hollow Lake because it is where is father grew up as a child and he has many family members that still live in the area. Greg has visited Dale Hollow every year for over 50 years. I have been coming here for over 30 years every year with my family. The kids have pretty much grown up boating, water skiing, and enjoying the lake and the community. We have seen many changes over the years.

We purchased the 'SunCatcher' property with the idea of building a small rental cottage but when we started to build we soon came to the realization that it would be much larger than we expected. Thus we ended up with four floors. We drove from Ohio to Tennessee every weekend for over a year to work on the house. We have had many wonderful visitors that love the house as much as we do and we hope everyone that stays will enjoy it too!

Bonnie purchased this house in 2003

Why Bonnie chose Tennessee

We purchased this property because of the location and the view of the lake, marina, and mountains. Also, because of the convenience to launching our boat and being on the water in just a few minutes. We purchased it too because it is in a quiet neighborhood. We love the location!

What makes this house unique

The unique layout of the home is great. It has four private floors with each floor having its own full bath. Three of the floors have covered decks.

One of the most awesome things about the home is the night view. If you sleep in the loft bedroom you can raise your head at night and see the lights from the marina, and the bridge which lights up the water. It is so beautiful.

You can sit on any of the decks and listen to the sounds around you. It is so serene.

Lots of space, lots of privacy, and a great place to vacation. We built the house for others to enjoy as we have for many years.

Great place and easy access to a great marina

  • 5 of 5

The house was well taken care of and had an amazing view. Sunset Marina is probably the nicest marina on Dale Hollow. Highly recommend.

A fantastic place with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. My wife and I along with 3 other couples had all the room we needed. I stayed in the loft and being an early riser got to enjoy the wonderful view of the lake each morning without getting out of bed. 5 minutes from the marina. We will be back. Thanks Bonnie

Spectacular View.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very clean. The view was breathtaking. The house accommodated our large family with plenty of space for everyone. We have stayed in four other houses each year for our family gatherings and we have now found our home away from home. See you next year Bonnie and thanks again for your hospitality and sharing your home.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We travel several times a year, this is one of our favorite getaways so far! The house is beautiful, CLEAN, and it has everything you need. The views are breathtaking and the fun we had on the lake is a memory to behold. I wish I could keep this place a secret and come back several times a year. Not to mention, the property owner is such a pleasure to work with. Thanks Bonnie. We love your home.

Absolutly beautiful, surpassing expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

SunCatcher has incredible views!! It's maintained to perfection, it's extremely comfortable and very spacious. All the bedrooms have their own full bath, which was very accommodating. Sunset Marina was just a short car ride away. My family has stayed at SunCatcher three times in the last two years, and will be returning in July. I would definitely recommend staying at SunCatcher, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your fantastic home!
