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!

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.

We loved the Haven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, consisting of 6 adults, 2 teens, and 4 younger than teenage children, spent 3 nights in the comfort of the Haven. It was perfect for our annual family weekend. We usually head to the mountains, but decided to do something different this year. This house had room for us to all enjoy time together or to spread out and do separate activities. In fact, we enjoyed our time there so much that we really didn't wander too far looking for entertainment. The owners were wonderful to work with throughout the booking and rental time. We definitely recommend this HomeAway home and hope to use it again ourselves.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at the Haven. It's everything you'd expect from a vacation rental. It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with most things you would need to prepare meals for a large group. I enjoyed the view and spent much of my time reading a book (or taking a nap) on the deck. The weather was perfect. The unusual layout of the house is kinda nice - we put the kids on one side while the adults were on the other. And, of course, we enjoyed the firepit each night.

The home is convenient to Cummins Falls and Burgess Falls. We enjoyed hiking both. We also ate dinner at Foglight Foodhouse in Walling, TN about 18 miles away based on your recommendation. It was fabulous. Thanks for the suggestion.

Great times. Thanks!

A beautiful property with lovely view of the lake from above!

  • 5 of 5

Much thought was put into guest comfort and convenience!! There is a well stocked kitchen including dishes that seal for leftovers! There were nightlights in all the corridors and bathrooms! The deck had a table for six with cushions and there are multiple wicker chairs with large comfortable cushions! Indoors was a large table for six with bar chairs at the kitchen counter. Everyone could join into conversations and help with prep work in the kitchen.

The house has three distinct areas of privacy for a large group: the downstairs bunk room and separate bedroom, the main floor master bedroom, and the 2nd master bedroom built on the back of main floor with balcony access from main floor and another access down through the game room and up an indoor back stairs to the addition. The game room is large with foosball and big wooden table for games. The built in shelving was stocked with dozens of games and puzzles! There is a Wii set up with several games and a Sega Genesis. We had great fun playing ping pong in the garage!! The total eclipse of the sun we viewed from the deck. It was magnificent!!! We were playing different songs related to the sun on our cellphones and guessing each other's picks between peeks at the progress of the moon across the sun!! A deer came to visit one morning strolling across the grass! The fire pit and grill outside were great. There were plenty of logs cut and available. The house was very clean and no bugs inside!!! The bathrooms were up to date. The door lock system was easy to use. There is room for 4 large cars to comfortably fit in the drive in front of the garages. It is a workout to bring luggage, groceries etc up the main staircase. Definitely not designed for those with handicaps which the owners freely state. Our 86 yr old mother made it in the main front door down a steep brick incline with assistance and pretty much stayed on that floor. We had family from six different states from age 86 yrs young to 1year!! We all had a wonderful time!!!
