Lakefront Hideaway With Private Dock

Space 393 sq. ft.
Property type Recreational Vehicle
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Can sleep 6

This is a park model RV but to see it, both inside and out, you wouldn't think it was anything but a cool place to stay. Charter TV and high speed WiF and, Surround sound. Beautiful place to relax, swim, fish, boat.

There is a comfy queen bed in the bedroom with a smart TV in case you want to check the weather (almost always partly cloudy with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms, lol), drawers and a large closet for your things.

Upstairs in the loft are 2 very comfy twin beds. This is a kids dream since it's NOT tall enough for adults to stand up. They can be up there and still be a part of what's going on below.

The couch pulls out to make a bed and there is a foam topper behind the couch to help with comfort.

This is a normally very quiet neighborhood with only 12 homes, all on the lake side of the road. The other side is a mix of forest and hay fields. A quiet walk along the road in the mornings or evenings will often let you see the local deer grazing.

*Important note about Boone Lake... The water levels are low this year due to work being done at the dam. I apologize in advance and we hope to be back to normal soon. Our dock, along with most all of the lake, is on dry land. There is still plenty of water, just not our normal gorgeous lake.

*Since this is a Park Model RV the water heater is 10 gallons. With the low flow shower head you can get a nice shower with no problems but back to back showers would need to allow about 30 minutes in between. The shower is small but I'm 6' and it works fine for me.

This unit is NOT child proof and is not suitable for children 5 and under. I do not charge a cleaning fee. Help me keep it that way by cleaning up after yourself. If you break or damage something please let me know and arrange for its replacement or repair.

Check in is 3 PM, check out is 11 AM.

About Ken Forgie

Nearing retirement while working for a large school system in North Carolina. I'm a partially disabled ex firefighter from California. I'm a musician, a boater and a floater.

Ken Forgie purchased this recreational vehicle in 2000

Why Ken Forgie chose Tennessee

This Lakefront Hideaway is my refuge. I come here to relax, recharge and get away from the daily grind. I love the peaceful location and calming views.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

If you look straight across the cove you'll see an estate owned by a partial owner of the Miami Dolphins. Look a little left near the flag pole and you might see his private helicopter landing to bring arriving guests.

Lakefront Hideaway With Private Dock
average rating of 4.9375 based on 16 reviews

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Really nice, if small, accommodation. It was exactly as described. Know that it is quite rural, there are no stores nearby, which was fine with us. The neighbors and neighborhood – it's at the end of a winding road through private properties – was very nice to stroll on and take our dogs for a walk on. This was important to us, and it was pleasing that there were no mean dogs or no trespassing signs in the neighborhood ( which, being a native East Tennessean, is not always the fact.)

As someone who suffers from allergies, from dust or mold or whatever, there were absolutely no issues.

Beautiful weekend at the lake

  • 5 of 5

This "small" lake getaway was a "big" surprise. So cute but with everything you need. Full size appliances and nice shower. The bed was very comfortable and the grandchildren enjoyed the lift area. We will return

Clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this place! The property is located on a quiet little cove on the lake and it's very ideal for swimming . We pretty much had the whole area to ourselves. Our dogs loved it just as much as we did. The lake levels are down quite a bit, but it allowed for a great set up on the resulting beach area and there was still plenty of water for swimming. The house is beautiful and well-kept with a fantastic layout for good cozy fun with your family and friends. It was a perfect lake experience. And the owner is very pleasant and accommodating. We hope to return in the future!
