About the property

1200 sq. ft. log cabin with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen & living room. Sleeps 6.

Whether you’re planning to visit the Dale Hollow area on a family vacation, honeymoon, hunting / fishing trip, or simply a peaceful get away; you’ll enjoy this privately owned log cabin with rustic decor just minutes from Dale Hollow Lake. The 100’ x 200’ lot provides peace, privacy, and plenty of room to park multiple vehicles, boats, and trailers including a car port to protect your boat or car from the weather. It’s the perfect place to relax after a day of fishing, horseback riding, hunting, or playing on beautiful Dale Hollow Lake!

Approximately 1200 square foot of indoor living space equipped with:

• All new appliances and furnishings, pillow top mattresses, and memory foam pillows installed in the spring of 2014.

• Direct TV & wireless internet service.

• Central heat and air.

• Washer & dryer available for your use.

Main floor:

• The living room is open to the roof beams with a queen sized sofa sleeper, 2 rocker recliners, a 40 inch flat screen TV, and a DVD/CD/Blue Ray player.

• Kitchen fully equipped with refrigerator w/ ice maker, microwave, flat top range, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, crock pot, electric mixer, and chopper. Cookware, dinnerware, silverware, cooking utensils, kitchen linens, and 1st morning coffee provided. Dining table with 4 chairs plus a breakfast bar with 2 bar stools for additional dining space.

• Bathroom is a little small, but it has everything you’ll need ... 34” shower, vanity, toilet, and hair dryer. Plenty of towels and 1st morning bath products provided in case you forget something.


• Cozy loft bedroom above the kitchen with 2 twin beds, chest of drawers, and night stand.

Full sized finished Basement:

• Accessible from the main floor or basement level outside entrance on the back side of the cabin.

• Bedroom with a queen sized bed, large mirrored dresser, large closet, and a sitting area with a cozy love seat & 20” TV.

Relax with your morning coffee in a rocking chair on the large front porch and enjoy outdoor dining on the covered back deck that runs the length of the cabin. The deck is furnished with a dining table, 6 chairs, and a gas grill. Sit back and soak up the tranquil scenery of open grassy fields and woods. The view from the deck is beautiful, especially in the fall when the leaves turn! You may even spot some wild turkey or deer! While the steaks sizzle on the grill, you may want to try your luck at a game of Corn Hole (boards & bags provided). After dinner you may want to relax around a cozy fire in the outdoor fire pit and roast some marshmallows.

The Getaway is not next to anything, but it's near everything! The peace and quiet coupled with views of open fields and woods will make it seem like you are a long way from anything, but most everything you'll want is close by.

Dale Hollow Lake is just a couple of miles away. With over 600 miles of naturally preserved shoreline and crystal-clear water, beautiful Dale Hollow Lake is perfect for boating, wake boarding, jet skiing, diving, and fishing. It's a prime location for small mouth bass fishing, currently holding the world record for the largest Small Mouth Bass ever taken (11 lb., 15 oz)!

You'll find 4 marinas where you can rent boats and jet skis, or where you can launch your own within 5 miles of the Getaway:

• Holly Creek Resort – 2 miles.

• Hendricks Creek Resort – 4 miles.

• Dale Hollow Marina – 5 miles.

• Cedar Hill Resort – 5 miles

If you enjoy horseback riding or hiking, you won't want to miss the Red Oak Ridge Horse Riding / Hiking Trail that is just 3 miles away. The trail offers 18 miles of beautiful and scenic trails developed for horseback riding or hiking. Beginning on wooded ridge top, riders can descend to follow the forested Dale Hollow shoreline. Seven loops provide for cutbacks to shorten or lengthen the trail, and the Eagles Bluff Overlook provides one of the most spectacular vistas of Dale Hollow Lake.

• Just 7 miles away you'll find the quaint little town of Celina with multiple stores where you can purchase gas, groceries, bait, and other necessities. You may want to browse the little antique shops downtown around the old court house or make a visit to the Clay County Museum. Along the way, stop in for a taste of the local BBQ or some country cooking at one of the small restaurants.

A little further out you'll find additional marinas, 2 state parks, golf courses, more unique little towns, and plenty of southern hospitality.

About Linda Ahrens

As a life long resident of the little town of Celina, I grew up swimming and skiing on beautiful Dale Hollow Lake and riding horses over the rolling hills of my family's farm. While the rest of the world has gotten bigger and busier over the years, nothing much has changed around here. The lake is still crystal clear, the shoreline is still natural, and everyone in our little town still waves when they meet you on the road. I'm now a local business owner of a local BBQ restaurant and look forward to having you come and enjoy our little slice of paradise!

Linda Ahrens purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Linda Ahrens chose Tennessee

I purchased this property a few years ago because of its proximity to the lake and the Red Oak Trail where our family enjoys horseback riding. It's only a couple of miles down to the Holly Creek Marina where we can launch our bass boat, or we can park our horse trailer at the cabin and take off on horseback for the day. Since the cabin is located on a large lot, the grand kids can play outside without worry that they'll get into the road. The cabin is surrounded by open fields and woods, so it is super quiet and peaceful. There is no one to bother you or complain about what you are doing! I sincerely hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

The large open lot offers plenty of room to park multiple vehicles or boat trailers. There is very little traffic ... just a few home owners on their way home or a farmer going by on his tractor every now and then. About all the sounds you'll hear are birds singing or the wind blowing!

It was peaceful and nice, however there were some repairs to the house.

  • 3 of 5

The leak issue worried me the night it rained and it frightened me the men showing up during my stay. Overall though it was very nice to have the baby gate, high chair and goodies waiting for us. The view of the mountain s and cows were priceless. As long as cabin is fixed I would diffenantly stay again.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry we had the repair issues during your stay. Normally I would not schedule any repairs while guests are at the cabin, but I felt I had no choice but to try to get the leak fixed asap, as rain was forecasted during your stay. I regret that you didn't find my message letting you know to expect the repairmen before they got there. Since your stay, we have had extensive caulking done to stop the leaks and have had a new coat of stain put on the entire cabin. No leaks & it looks great. I look forward to having you back again!

Great cabin and great owner

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here 3 years in a row during Thanksgiving on a fishing trip. It's always clean, comfortable, and meets our needs every time. Great place to stay near Holly Creek Boat Ramp. Owner is always pleasant to work with and communicates as needed. Booking and access is easy.
