Wonderful vacation home, even to use to get out of town for a weekend. I . There are many things to do,mostly we relax and enjoy a beautiful view that captures us all.WE cruise on our vacation. Now have 2 boxer brindle dogs.

Bernard Via purchased this house in 2001

Why Bernard Via chose Bristol

Our dream home is located on a hillside with much in the way of natural beauty. The Lake is a wonderful forested mountain backdrop with a view from the hillside second to none. We have installed windows troughout to open you to clean fresh air in season(of course ac when needed). Decks exist for outside dining and barbecue on gas grill. Lots of steps will get your exercise during the week. We are near parks and hiking trails. You can enjoy historic trips to Jonesborough,Abingdon,Greenville,Bristol active downtown and country Music heritage.

What makes this house unique

Pontoon rental available through 3rd person. Bring your own boat or jet ski to use our dock for some lake fun and swimming. There are plenty of places around you can rent boats . Enjoy a beautiful clean lake to swim and fish. We are located near a national forest and the Appalachian trail biking on the Va. Creeper trail between Abingdon and Damascus is wonderful. I hope the weather is pleasant, as it usually is, but if not you will have many other activites to enjoy.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

the house was everything you could want; plenty of dishes, spices, extra's

such as salad dressing, condiments,coffee, etc. beautiful view and very relaxing. lake was wonderful and house accessible from town.plenty of extra room to spread out. the deck is a delightful place to spend a few hours morning and night. you "will" get plenty of excercise going up and down the steps though...so don't bring to many heavy suitcases... pack light and use the washer/dryer. had a great time and would do it again.

Didn't know I was cleaning the house

  • 3 of 5

I got charged for not vacuuming even though the paperwork at the house on check out procedure calls for sweeping (which we did) for the amount of money we spent I think it's crazy.

Owner's Response: It was a little more than just sweeping . there was a lot of food spilled under the ottoman and the dishes had to be rewashed as they were loaded without rinsing off old dried food. The next guest would not want food stuck on dishes.. There is a $69 cleaning fee which we waived all but $15 since the house was basically cleaned.

Wonderful time with family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. Lovely home with lots of room. It does have ALOT of stairs that I couldn't really tel about from the pictures but that could be an issue for older renters and the dock is accessible across the road and down a lot of stairs. As long as stairs are not a problem this house is perfect for large groups!!!

Nice older home close to the water

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very easy to work with and grill had propane for outdoor cooking. So many of the houses we have rented promise propane but tank is always empty. House is well suited for teens and adults but not younger kids. Parking is very limited especially if you have a boat. Overall, house is just as it appears in the pictures. Decks were very nice.

Everything you need

  • 4 of 5

My family very much enjoyed staying in this house. It had plenty of space for us, there was absolutely nothing we needed besides food! It's in a great location and views are beautiful,and the cove was perfect for the kids to jump off the dock and swim. We rented a boat at a nearby marina and spent the day on the lake. It is gorgeous!! The only concern I had was the condition of the stairs going down to the lake, as long as you take your time you should be just fine. I'll definitely be back!!
