About the property

4 Bed/3 Bath w/ Bunk Room with Private Dock and Beautiful Lake Views

Fantastic 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with a 5th room that has a bunk bed for the kids! Our home has 2 decks with great lake views and a private dock. Bring your own boat or rent one at the local marina! Tons of outdoor entertaining space to enjoy the lake. High speed internet, wifi and cable TV with a flat screen in the living room. The home is located just minutes from Tims Ford Marina by water and minutes from one of the best water sports areas on the lake. New hardwood floors upstairs in the living room and 2nd bedroom!

We do not have year round water at our dock, after the TVA lowers the lake to winter pool, our dock is dry. This is from mid October to late March.

About Aaron Whitaker

My wife and I live just outside Nashville and we love being on the water. We use the home constantly but we love to share it with friends and family and allow other people to experience our getaway. There is nothing better than being at the lake!

Aaron Whitaker purchased this house in 2014

Why Aaron Whitaker chose Tennessee

Tims Ford Lake is a fantastic lake with clean water and beautiful shoreline. We chose this property so that we could have our own private dock, but you can also travel a few minutes on water to a number of private coves or channels and enjoy treed shoreline. It is the best of both worlds.

house to relax in

  • 4 of 5

We found the lake house to be an enjoyable vacation spot. The house is not an immaculate home that one would be afraid to touch anything. It is a lived in home that allows you to relax. It has enough amenities to make it an effortless transition from your house to theirs. We enjoyed using the hot tub multiple times during the day. The back screened in deck made for a wonderful napping place.

The owner was very nice when we had to call about an issue and had the issue resolved within hours.

Of note: 1) There is no ladder from the dock to get into the water of the cove. The lake edge consists of stones which are too slippery to walk on to enter the lake. 2) The sidewalk down to the dock is very steep without a handrail and could be hazardous to the elderly or anyone with disabilities. 3) The stairway to the basement is also without a handrail and must be taken cautiously.

Wonderful Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house! The dock was very handy for being able to tie our boat to instead of having to load and unload each day. Location was ideal and not far from the main marina. The view was spectacular and the owners were great to work with! Neighbors were friendly too!

Tim's Ford Rental

  • 3 of 5

The info we received showed TV's in every room. There were; however, none of them worked except the one in the living/dining area. They were not hooked up to internet.

I wouldn't recommend it to someone older as it was extremely hard to get up and down the hill to the dock.

Although not your fault, we had to deal with construction noise all week from the site next door. Plus they burned trees all week and the soot covered us and the outdoor furniture.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! This is true, the only TV is in the living room, we have removed the older tv's from the bedrooms. So sorry about the pictures being inaccurate!

Our family of 8 enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The 2 back decks over look the water and make for a wonderful morning coffee or after dinner relaxation. The hot tub was a huge hit with the kids. We rented a boat from the local marina to do some fishing and sightseeing. We really enjoyed ourselves.
