The private cove with a gentle water depth slope is perfect for swimming, especially young children, or just those wanting to enjoy calm waters.

My husband and I both grew up in East Tennessee. We have seven children that keep us very busy, ages 19 to 2 years; three wonderful daughter and four awesome sons. We love spending time with our family and particularly enjoy spending time on the lake. We currently live in Rockwood, just one hour away from this home.
Joe & Rhonda Chapin purchased this house in 2003
I grew up nearby in Rockwood, yet I worked in Knoxville when I purchase this home. I LOVE the water ... I really enjoy the exciting water sports, but also the calming effect it has on me when I just sit and enjoy the view. This was the perfect site in between the part of the lake I grew up enjoying and the proximity to make workplace.
The seclusion, yet convenience, peace and quiet, and breathtaking views of this location sold me before I even went inside. The home is very beautiful and unique with exposed beam ceilings and mahogany wood used throughout and lots and lots of windows for an open feel!
Some friends and I spent the weekend at the Sanctuary. We had so much fun and it was completely private as described. No need to leave. So much to do right at the property and so beautiful!
When we arrived very late we couldn't see the house in it's full perspective, when we woke to the sound of song birds, the wind blowing a warm breeze and the sound of lake fishing jump. It was truly something we have dreamed of. The house is beautifully decorated and open. There was plenty of space for all of us, including our furry babies. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and hot tub, looking at the stars at night. The lake was awesome. We had so much fun in the paddle boat and row boat. Caught and released lots of fish. The colors were just starting to change and the weather couldn't have been better for us. Smoky Mountains were a short and beautiful drive away for us to stay the day and hike, still make it back to enjoy the quiet sounds from the deck. Full moon off of the lake make it like a night lite. The owners were incredibly accommodating and came right out when we couldn't figure out the hot tub. They had it going in no time and made us feel welcome from the start. It was so wonderful and we didn't want to leave. Cannot wait to visit again and stay at the same place. The house is at the end of road and very private, which we loved! There is no wifi which is a BLESSING to Unplug!! They had plenty of movies to watch and games to play. We cooked everyday and didn't need anything.(we came prepared) The house is well stocked with all cooking essentials. Next time I will bring my large electric skillet, pancakes for 6 took me a bit longer, but we all enjoyed the wait. Everyone enjoyed cooking while looking out at the breathtaking lake view. The house has so many windows, it' s like being in a tree house. Can't wait to go back and stay! Thank you so much to the Chapins! You have done a great job with the property. Loved it ALL! Thank you!! I cannot say enough positive things. We miss it already!
While the house itself is beautiful, it is unkept. There were cobwebs everywhere, the sheets on some of the beds were dirty, the curtains had build up from dirt and bugs. The kitchen cupboards had dust and dirt. I think with some TLC and elbow grease, this property would be spectacular, but my whole family was grossed out by all the dirt. I did not ask, so no fault of the owners, but there is no service for cell phones or wifi in the area. I had to drive to the nearest town to get some work done. May be a good idea to note this in the description.
Dealing with the owners prior to arrival was very good. They responded to emails in a very timely manner and communicated well.
I would recommed a thorough cleaning of the houses, inside and out and I guarantee the rating for the property would go way up.
15 family members spent a long weekend while attending a wedding at Whitestone Country Inn in Kingston which was directly across the lake; even allowing us to view the fireworks from the house upon returning that were the grand finale of the wedding.
The amount of room in the houses was perfect for all of us and we all spent much time by the outdoor pool, hot tub and lake. A great weekend!
It was great. Plenty of space for people to sleep. Nice and quiet in the woods with a beautiful view of the lake. And the pool and hot tub were great!
My wife and I had a great time while staying at this property. The location is super private. We brought everything we needed for the entire stay and never left. The pool and hot tub were awesome and where we found ourselves the majority of the day. The pool and hot tub are in the middle of the two houses. There are tons of places to sleep in these houses and could accommodate multiple families. There is a great view of the lake from the property. This trip allowed us to relax and forget about the everyday responsibilities and hassles back home. Rhonda was great to communicate with. We would recommend this property and will probably return ourselves.
this place was beautiful. we took 24 girls with us to this house for a retreat and couldn't have picked a better spot. it was clean and had everything we needed plus some.
