About Jennifer Lancaster

Our family loves to spend time together enjoying the outdoors. My husband and I grew up going to Dale Hallow lake some of our fondest memories are of the time we spent there. We wanted to spend more time here with our family and friends so we began looking for a place on the lake. Everything we found on the lake had a view of the lake, but was still a 10 min drive to get there. Our real estate agent told my husband about a place that was still close enough to the lake, but it was actually on the river.

Jennifer Lancaster purchased this house in 2010

Why Jennifer Lancaster chose Byrdstown

We fell in love with the property when we first saw it. It is so beautiful with its huge trees, natural wildlife and amazing location right on the river. Our family and friends have grown to love the place and we enjoy spending time here year around. My favorite thing to do is to sit on the porch in a rocking chair and listen to the peaceful sound of the river-it doesn’t get any better than that!!! In the spring, fall and winter we enjoy exploring the river and of course in the summer we love to spend the day on gorgeous Dale Hallow Lake. We hope everyone can come enjoy this beautiful area of Tennessee and make their own treasured memories.

Basketball retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a retreat. Great people to work with and will go out of there way tonnake sure you have a nice stay. I coach high school basketball and needed a place to stay nearby. We didn't wanna do the hotel deal so we chose here. Man was it a great idea even in the middle of winter! Fireplace inside and out was amazing. Had plenty of games,cards,tv etc for the kids to do. Even though we where not able to play in the river the views where unreal. I'd recommend this place and look forward to getting back in the summer.

One of Our Most Favorite Get-a-ways Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, and friends--a family of 6--had the most wonderful, relaxing time at this beautiful cabin. The location is perfect for a private retreat. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. We had kids age 7-15, and everyone enjoyed it and had something to entertain them. We fished (my daughter caught her first fish), swam, and rocked on the front porch. We enjoyed cooking together in the kitchen and watching the beautiful sky full of thousands of stars around a bon fire. We rented a pontoon boat on Dale Hollow Lake, which was fun for everyone. The cabin is also in a great location to explore the beautiful area. We visited Pumpkin Day in Allardt and toured the Victorian village of Rugby. We hiked around a waterfall and down into a cave. It is truly a beautiful part of Tennessee. I can't wait to go back!

We had the most relaxing and fun vacation staying in your beautiful cabin! We actually planned to spend most of our time on Dale Hollow Lake, but had the best time enjoying the river right in our own backyard. Fishing and riding inner tubes in the river, and just spending time on the wrap around porch were the best! The cabin was very cozy and clean, and the kitchen was very well equipped for preparing our meals. We did enjoy a fun night in town at a local restaurant recommended by the owners. Thanks so much for all of your help, and we're so excited to find a place we'll look forward to staying for future vacations!!!

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! The house was spacious enough for our family of 12 with room to spare. We spent hours on the deck that overlooks the river eating, playing games, relaxing and it was perfect for the small children. The river is steps from the cabin with a swimming hole and rapids that were fast enough for floating on tubes. The water was cool and crystal clear. Sunset Marina was a short drive away with a swimming beach and boat access. Our family loved the cabin and made lasting memories. We highly recommend this retreat for gatherings of all kinds!

Great place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Wolf River Retreat. The property was very well equipped, very clean, modern and decorated with an outdoor theme. We loved the river and water hole so close - our kids loved swimming, fishing and playing in the river. It was so peaceful listening to the river. We noticed the amazing sound of the river as soon as we got out of our car when we arrived. The owners were helpful and made some great recommendations for dining and local activities. We enjoyed a hike in Big South Fork that they had recommended. It is a little further drive to the lake than where we usually stay but it is well worth it because we enjoyed the river so much. We will be back next year we have a new favorite place to stay.

What a wonderful weekend! The cabin is private, relaxing and very comfortable. My husband and I spent a long weekend and had the best time. We wanted a quiet retreat and we got exactly that! Walking around the river was nice and we can't wait to go back with our snorkel gear and swim suits (a bit cold to swim when we were there). We loved walking around and gathering fire wood and had the most amazing fires! The kitchen provided everything for some excellent meals. We spent hours rocking on the porch, which gave us a different view each time since it was all the way around! Gorgeous views from every angle. The cabin is well decorated, extremely comfortable and very clean! This home is perfect for anyone! From a romantic getaway to family vacations or reunions. The home is large enough to accommodate everyone and give enough space for all. This is NOT a home you will be crowded in. While there are things to do close by, we cherished just staying at the cabin all weekend. If you like the water - the river is perfect for sitting and watching it sparkle or getting in and splashing around! Again, can't wait to go back!!
