About John Barrett

My wife and i love this home. Its been our perfect get away. Our four children have had many good times here.

John Barrett purchased this house in 2008

Why John Barrett chose Tennessee

We love the Colony type homes. It comes with everything we need to either stay in the neighborhood for swimming at the pool or get to the lake for a fun day of boating.

What makes this house unique

The porches on this home look directly at the lake and in the morning there is nothing better than sitting on the main level porch with your coffee and relaxing.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice and comfortable. I was not told that the pool would be closed during my stay which we were looking forward to using. The grill was filthy so we did not get to grill out. Toaster doesn't toast work. GFI issues in master bathroom and kitchen. Master walk in closet light did not work. Outside driveway lights did not work.

Highly recommend

This was our second trip to this property. It is a lovely home, very spacious, is well maintained and has a great view of the lake. John is a gracious host and we plan to return again.

New, Clean, Beautiful home with Great View

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family. It is incredibly clean and comfortable (great couch and recliner in family room). We loved the game room with shuffle board and pool. The home is spacious and luxe feeling. But the best part is the screened in porch. It feels like you're above it all and has a beautiful view of the lake. The one thing I wish I could change is the lack of shops and restaurants anywhere nearby, but obviously that's just something to know when you book a stay here. A wonderful home that we will be back to!

We hope to come back many times!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lake house, and we're so glad we returned. For this trip it was myself (the mom), and a total of seven teenagers. There was plenty of room for everyone. The house was clean and beautiful. The kids had a great time in the game room, and I enjoyed the peacefulness of the screened porch. The only slight "negative" would be that the kitchen supplies are somewhat limited when it comes to plates and especially glasses for a group of eight. If you plan to do a lot of meals for a group, this might be something to consider.

Great Experience, Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved being here as a family for a weekend of pool time and catching up. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Drink your coffee on one of the two porches with stunning views of the lake. Things were very clean and there were plenty of towels, etc. John was extremely responsive, helpful and accommodating. We were already discussing a return trip on our first evening in this great house. Thank you!
