About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home. Close To Marina And Recreation Area! Gorgeous Lake View

Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Looking for a place to boat, ski, and swim? The Haven is the perfect place for one or multiple families to come and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors! The home is nestled on 3 wooded acres on the end of a cul de sac so it is very private. You can sit out on the covered deck or patio and enjoy the beautiful year round lake view or relax by the fire at the fire pit that overlooks the lake. There is plenty of nature for the children to explore and safe areas for the children to run and play outside.

The home has 4 bedrooms: 2 Master Suites, one with a king bed, walk-in shower and one with a queen bed and shower/tub combo. Another queen size room and a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds and two extra pillow top twin mattresses that can be pulled out trundle style. If you have additional guests there is a loft area with a queen size pull out sofa bed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare your meals. Pots/pans, coffee maker, blender, griddle, and mixer are all provided. There is a charcoal grill outside for your family cookouts. You will enjoy all newly purchased kitchen supplies and linens for your comfort.

Sit back and relax in the living room while looking through a wall of windows overlooking the lake. For those cold evenings enjoy a fire in the stone gas fireplace. The children can relax in their own space downstairs while the adults are upstairs. Complete with a foosball table, 55" flat screen TV and game table the downstairs is set up to entertain! There is also a ping pong table for those late night tournaments and a basketball goal for the energetic souls! The house has has 6 flat screen TVs, Wifi, a Wii and Netflix for your enjoyment, no satellite/cable.

The house has a wrap around porch to experience the most nature has to offer and both Master Suites walk out to the deck. The other two rooms walk out to a covered patio with a lake view and comfortable swing or rocking chairs to relax in. There is plenty of parking in the driveway and easy boat turn around in the cul de sac. Unlike many properties on Center Hill lake the drive is NOT treacherous. There is a recreation area and boat ramp 1 1/2 miles from the house and Sligo marina is close by with pontoon boat rentals or boat slips available by the night for $10. Riverwatch golf course is close by for those who enjoy spending the day on the greens. There are grocery stores, restaurants and activities 15 minutes away in Smithville. The property's address is Sparta, but it is actually right outside of Smithville. The Haven is the perfect place for sport, leisure, and getting away from it all!

About Stacey DeWit

I grew up camping and boating on Center Hill Lake and it was always a dream of mine to own a home on Center Hill. It is such a beautiful lake and holds many cherished childhood memories for me of the days I spent here with family and friends. Now that I am grown and have a family of my own with a husband and three children I decided having a place of our own to create new memories would be such a special gift. We live in Mt. Juliet, TN so the lake property is around an hour away. We just purchased the home in January 2015 and have been working very hard to make it our home away from home. We decided to rent the home on VRBO to help cover expenses and to allow other families the opportunity to make their own memories!

We love this property because it is on three beautiful wooded acres with a beautiful year round lake view. It has tons of privacy, yet it is close to the lake and marina. We hope to spend many weekends having great experiences at our lake home and we hope you do too!

Stacey DeWit purchased this house in 2015

Tree Top Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, all nine women, life-long friends, were WOWED by this property - even in the dreary January winter. It was a perfect setting with wonderful views to enter our sixties together . There was plenty of room in the kitchen for us all to cook together and throughout the property (indoors and out) to huddle and catch up on our lives. We certainly took advantage of the fire-pit one afternoon, comfy seating for all. It is a clean, well-maintained property! The owners were delightful and responsive with all our questions and needs.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your cabin. The layout was perfect for us, our 2 children and another guest that joined us. The guest stayed in the separated room which was perfect as she had her own sitting area, bathroom etc. The kids had a BLAST in the rooms downstairs with the foos ball, puzzles, ping pong, etc.

We loved the lovely master and bathrooms (loved the bathrooms) upstairs. The kitchen was also very well equipped as we like to cook.

Our favorite things, however, were the VIEW from the deck and the fire pit out back (same view).

We will be back!

Wow!! What a beautiful home and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lake house for our Christmas Vacation. We went with another family 10 people in all and there was ample room.. So much at the home for the kids to play with and kept entertained. The view was breathtaking. Would love to stay there again. I would recommend this stay to anyone.

Beautiful View, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 7 days to be close to where our daughter was Getting married. I arrived a few days earlier than my husband. I felt safe alone there. The home was very nicely decorated. Very spacious. The view was breath taking and I was able to sit back and relax between the hustle of last minute preparations. The Master was Upstairs on the main floor with a huge master bath, while the bottom floor offered two bedrooms, eight beds, a Wii game system, board games, puzzles, Foosball and ping pong. Every bed room had a door to the porch area. There was an upstairs bedroom over the garage that offered a small master feeling. As well as seclusion from the kids downstairs. My husband is not one to pay for a rental home. He prefers to keep his options open in case he is not satisfied with his accommodations. However, when it was time to go, he expressed how sad he was to leave. As my kids would say, "best stay ever".
