Why Bruce W. McNeilage chose Tennessee

The attention to detail and comfortable design make this elegant and functional. Every detail down to the 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets to the thick, oversize towels to the goose down pillows has been taken care of. The lake is crystal clear and pool and fitness facility make this a must visit home.

I am a picky owner and cater to picky people. You will not be disappointed

Four decks, double fireplace, and the view and clubhouse and pool make this a Center Hill gem. You can also have a boat valeted right behind the house from one of two marinas.

Great home!

  • 4 of 5

The home was clean, well-kept and with plenty of space for our group of 10. The neighborhood was very quiet and within 45 minutes of most local attractions. You are expected to bring all paper products, so stock up when can you are in town as it's a 15 minute drive. Only a couple of non-chain places to eat locally so we cooked alot.

Lovely Clean Lakeview Property Near Great State Parks (Burgess Falls, Rock Island, Fall Creek Falls)

  • 5 of 5

My brother recently visited me at my home in western Tennessee. We wanted to spend some time in the central region of the state, which offers many beautiful state parks with great hiking.

I chose this property because it was located right on Center Hill Lake in an upscale resort community. Upon arrival at the home, we were grateful to see that the driveway is level with the street (no 4-wheel drive required for steep driveways), and it is only a few steps from the car to the front door. However, the road to get to the resort is narrow, winding and unlit with a couple blind curves, so it's best to arrive during daylight if possible.

When first entering the home, the impression is one of spaciousness and cleanliness. The main level contains the living area, dining area, and fully-equipped kitchen in an open floor plan, a separate room with a pool table, and a full bath. A door off the dining room provides access to the upper deck, which contains a gas grill and patio table with chairs.

The lower level is accessed from the carpeted staircase right inside the front door. All bedrooms are on the lower level: a large master with full bath, TV, and access to the lower deck; a guest bedroom with ¾ bath and a separate deck; a “kids” bedroom with bunk beds and ¾ bath; and another bunk bed in the hallway outside the kids bedroom. Additionally, there is a TV/video game area with futon seating and a large laundry room with full sized washer and dryer.

With only two occupants, we didn't use all the space in this home, but we each had a luxurious bedroom and bath to ourselves. The beds were comfortable with fresh, rich linens. The towels in the bathrooms were plush. Everything was super clean. We didn't do much cooking, but we used the grill, microwave and dishwasher. There were plenty of dishes, glassware, flatware and utensils to meet our needs. We were able to access the WiFi and experienced no performance issues. Most importantly, the satellite TV got all the channels we wanted, especially for watching the Cubs playoff games.

Communication with the owner was excellent, with quick responses to queries and the booking request. Payment can be made using Paypal (it is free if using the “friends and family” payment option). The security deposit was refunded by check through the mail in a timely manner.

All in all, this property rates superior marks in all categories and I would highly recommend it to others considering a visit to this area of TN.

My three sisters and I came here for a "sisters only" weekend. We are in our 60's. We had a perfect time here.

This is a remote location. If you want a night life, you should pick something else. Smithville is a beautiful area on Center Lake. During our visit, we saw two deer, a chipmunk, a rabbit, turkey, lots of birds and other wildlife. This home is roomy. Lots of space to play cards or pool, watch TV, or hang out on one of the great decks. There is a community pool you may use if you would like.

We sat outside in the evenings with a glass of wine and watched the lightening bugs.

The home had everything we needed. We just brought our own food and drinks and were set for the four days we were here.

There were two full bathrooms that had tubs, so you could either shower or take a bath, additionally there were two other bathrooms with small showers in them. All four of us could shower and get ready at the same time for a days adventure!

The bedrooms were great. Two bedrooms had queens beds, one bedroom had bunk beds, and a third space,(it is not a bedroom) had bunk beds. The three bedrooms had bathrooms in them and the fourth bathroom was in the living area.

The house is built into a hill so it had three levels. The bottom level was a private storage space. The middle level had the sleeping areas as well as a tv/game area and the laundry room. The top level, which is where you enter the house at the front door, had a full bathroom, dining room, pool table room, kitchen, and living room. Everything else is downstairs.

The decks got very hot during during the afternoons. Outdoor fans would have been a plus if provided.

I was worried when I booked this home about the payment arrangement and the security deposit amount. Not payable through VRBO. Don't worry, the owners have been very accessible and we have not had any problems. I would book this home again in a heartbeat.

We loved our time here. Oh, and there is a beautiful lake to look at while sipping wine one the deck!

Very comfortable and relaxing stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay recently for our first trip to the area. The house is larger and more comfortable than it looks in the pictures. We were actually a little nervous that the house would be too small for us with a family of 6 plus grandparents but there was plenty of space. We were all able to spread out and relax in comfort between the den, game space, comfy couches, dining room with a view and a multitude of decks. The setting was nice and quiet and the views serene. All together it made for an enjoyable extended weekend.

One item worth mentioning ... GPS can be a little slow to keep up back in those thar hills, so I suggest trying to arrive during daylight hours.

The owner was easy to deal with and communicate with and made the rental process easy.

Best VRBO on the market!

  • 5 of 5

We looked and looked for a place to stay at Center Hill Lake and finally chose this one, and was I glad! This semi modern house was magnificent. There was a lot of thought that went into the atmosphere. This house was VERY clean and had all the amenities of your own house, well more than my house. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious and full of charm. I was glad there was high speed wireless internet in the house, and my cell phone worked great. My family enjoyed the short walk down to the water where our kids spend hours throwing rocks into the lake. One of my favorite parts of the house was the hammock on the back porch with a view an incredible view. Next time we head back to Center Hill Lake I know where we will be staying!

So sad to leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! We can't say enough about this delightful lake vacation get-away! As a family who loves both the lake and the mountains, this place answers exceptionally well. We were very impressed with the house and its spectacular view of the lake through the mountains. The home is very spacious and has a wonderfully cozy and comfortable feel. One of the nicest aspects of this vacation home is that this house had all of the amenities of our very own home. This includes all of the kitchenware that one could possibly need. It was great to cook for the family and have the open floor plan to enjoy everyone's company as well. All of the rooms and closets were fully stocked with abundant supply of linens and blankets. We had no issues finding this home, as the directions were easy to follow. The neighborhood has a very charming and pleasant atmosphere. The immaculately clean home presents with significant outdoor living areas. Each room had its very own outdoor space, with the main deck at the top having a great gas-fed grill beside the eating / lounging area. The game room was awesome. We had several hours of entertainment while playing pool! This home far exceeded our expectations. Most times when we go on vacations, we have difficulty sleeping in a strange bed, but not only did we sleep soundly in the extremely comfortable beds, I actually took a long nap on the couch. I never take naps! Unfortunately, we had to leave and return back to reality, but we definitely cannot wait to return to this magnificent home and enjoy those breathtaking scenes.
