Lakefront Hideaway With Private Dock

Bedrooms 1
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. 2 TVs and high speed WiFi. 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.

There is an external surveillance camera for property protection.

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 Piney Flats

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.

Wonderful property to stay at with great views and nature all around. Called fish with the kid and had a bonfire which was wonderful. Ken is a great host always got back to us within an hour with any questions we had. I highly recommend this place to anyone that wants to relax and enjoy their time with their family.

Nice, cozy place. Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing.

Just what the doctor ordered: nice, quiet, relaxing, and peaceful sanctuary from the busy-ness of life! About 15 minutes from town. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay!

It was Great !!!

  • 4 of 5

When we first arrived it was dark so we couldn't see much until the next morning. The Mobile home/cabin was great for us. Plenty of room for 2 people. Needs just a little TLC especially around the swimming area.It was totally overgrown and no place really to access the water from the home,which was a big disappointment since I love to swim.Other than that, a great location very close to Bristol's Thunder Alley . Loved going exploring and finding all kinds of places to eat ,shop and explore . Would definitely go back :)

OK, but could be better.

  • 3 of 5

The location was woodsy and quiet. Though the cabin was small it was all we needed. The level of cleanliness was disappointing, though. The floor space around the toilet hadn't be cleaned in ages, and shower base were pretty grimey too. Almost no soap of any kind. There was an air of neglect, as if he owner hadn't been there in quite a while to check up on the maintenance. In general, the attention to detail wasn't what we usually find with vrbo places.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for pointing out the issues you reported. This has been addressed immediately with the cleaning staff. I will say there was at least 1/3 of a bottle of Dawn dish soap prior to the stay, and there is always an individually wrapped gift pack of shampoo, body soap, conditioner and moisturizer left for each guest. This would normally be enough for two people for at least two days if they forgot to bring their own toiletries. I appreciate your business and your thoughts and opinions. I will let my almost unanimous 5 star ratings speak for themselves as to my attention to detail and how I'm there regularly to make sure each stay is enjoyable for all. kf

Cute little cottage by the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. This park model is small but we knew that when renting it. Perfect for a couple for a weekend getaway. It is very quiet there.

We are from California and were there for a week to check out the area as we are considering moving to Tennessee. The only drawback for us in that regard was that it is a bit remote which is perfect for a quiet vacation but not when you are looking for homes😉?. Ken was a great host and we appreciated his getting back to us in a ttimely manner in answering any questions we had. It might be a bit small for a family but perfect for a couple.

Nice place. Very kid friendly!

  • 4 of 5

The place was everything we could have hoped for. A little disappointing about the lake level being so low, but that's out of the owners control, of course.
