Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Baxter - Red Roof Home on the Lake

One of very few homes right next to the water of Center Hill Lake! Beds for 12

We would love to share our beautiful home on Center Hill Lake with you and your family! It is very unique in that it is one of only a few homes on the lake located on the water. You can, literally, back your boat from the house right into the water. While spending the day out boating you can drop off anyone who needs a rest at the house and then pick them back up with ease. It is a 50 yard paved walk to the boat launch!

The home is two levels. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, but has beds for 12. The upstairs has a covered back porch for easy parking and handicap access. You can actually access both the upstairs of the home and the downstairs without using stairs if needed.

The kitchen has modern appliances and is fully stocked with dishes, utensils and amenities, including microwave, blender, coffer maker, crock pot and griddle. There is a large dining room table and smaller side table if you need more seating.

The upstairs family room has a 50 inch HD TV and DVD player with DISH cable, including ESPN. There is plenty of seating for large groups and a selection of DVDs and board games for the family.

There is spacious front porch that runs the length of the home and is accessed through two separate, beautiful sliding doors. There is a large amount of outdoor seating for watching all the wildlife and a large gas grill.

On the lower level you can play games on the ping pong table or separate pool table, or watch games on the 50 inch HD TV in the downstairs family room!

There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer.

Have fun in the large front yard playing ball or picking apples from one of the 3 apple trees that bear fruit in mid to late summer. You can also enjoy a fire out under the stars and roasting smores in the fire pit near the house.

We are located just 15 minutes from I-40 by car. It is just under an hour to Nashville International Airport and is a very easy drive. We are 15 minutes from the town of Cookeville, where Tennessee Tech is located. There is every restaurant you can imagine, along with movie theaters, bowling alley and roller skating in case you have a rainy day. We are less than 10 minutes by car from Cookeville Boat Dock Marina. By boat, we are less than 10 minutes from Hurricane Marina and are located right at the entrance to Mine Like Creek - famous for its wakeboarding and water skiing conditions.

Whether you are just wanting to have a large place for several families to meet, a place right on the water with easy access for boating, a mile of walkable shoreline for exploring and fishing, or thousands of acres of adjacent US Corp of Engineers property for hunting, we think you will have a great time at our home!

About Tim Myers

We are a family from middle Tennessee who fell in love with Center Hill Lake when we moved here 15 years ago.

Tim Myers purchased this house in 2004

Why Tim Myers chose Tennessee

We love how Center Hill Lake has such a pristine shoreline with no docks and it just feels like you are out on a "mountain lake", but we wanted the function of being able to just be able to put the boat right in the water from our place and not have to drive to a marina. It took years of looking, but this setup was worth it.

What makes this house unique

Nearby waterfalls with great hiking, location right on the water, two levels in the home to spread out and easy access to Cookeville and Nashville!

Relaxing Weekend on Center Hill Lake

  • 4 of 5

Wanted to stay somewhere where we could bring our own boat to launch. This place was clean and had the space to accommodate us all. Launching was just down the road a bit - and a piece of cake. Didn't hurt that we had four wheel drive to help! We spent most of the time on the water boating and playing and then a quick drive back up the road to our lodging. The house was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and grilling! The kids loved the ping pong table and pool table available for their use. The only thing that would've been better is to have had the lake view from the long front porch!

Sooooo relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with plenty of room to relax. The upstairs porch is wonderful! Just sitting and chilling with family while grilling steaks on the barbie was great. Everything was clean and well organized. Plenty of things to entertain everyone- and our guests ranged in age from 2 to 93! Will definitely consider booking this place again next year.

I would recommend you purchase provisions for the trip in Cookevill, as the Little Dodge Store, while convenient, is quite pricey. Cell service is not very good, but who wants the phone bugging you while you're chilling at the lake? A great place to unplug and unwind!

Our Stay over 4th of July weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! Tim was so nice and helpful with questions we had. When we got to the house, it was everything the pictures showed and more. We loved that the kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook with etc. We also got great use out of the fire pit. That was so nice to have. Great location and literally right at the lake. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be back next year!

A good price for a place that sleeps 12.

  • 4 of 5

I appreciate the kindness and prompt communication from the owners. We were a little disappointed with the surrounding area as many of the houses were not well kept and somewhat run down. You will definitely need a four wheel drive to put your boat in the water if you have a larger or heavy boat. Not too bad if you don't mind driving 20 minutes to the Cookeville Boat Dock to put your boat in. One disappointment with the home was the layout with the one room of the full size bed and bunks is not really a "room". It is part of an open area to both the top and bottom floor so it is not a good place for the kids to get a nap as you might like. Good news is that the place is very clean and in good shape. And as I said, the owners are great folk.
