About Property Manager/Owner

Jim is a native Floridian; Brenda is from upstate New York, both are retired educators/attorney. We built this home in 1990 as a future retirement home because we loved TN and had developed a small community here with one brother and two sisters who then lived in surrounding small homes. We have lived here almost full time since 2005, but now find we can share it with others, spending most of our time in FL for health reasons.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1990

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Tennessee

Although we are not hunters, many family members have been successful hunters here. Our greatest pleasure has been the hiking trails and the wildlife, especially the birds, rabbits and deer.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We most enjoy the two hour proximity to Nashville, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, Falls Creek Falls State Park south of Crossville, and the entire Smoky Mountain trail. (and the great Casino in Cherokee). Our favorite past time is sitting on the deck at dusk, listening to the sounds of the night while identifying all the birds at our feeders. The greatest benefit is that we can house a very large family to celebrate events together.

Great vacay.

  • 4 of 5

Great vacation home. Pool, outdoor living areas, cozy home. Close enough to town of Harriman to go eat or get groceries. If cooking, take spices, condiments, cooking oil, and a blender! About 45 minutes from house is Catoosa Wildlife Management Area, where there's beautiful hiking.

Nice house in the country

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax with a family or friends this is the right place for you. A cozy, clean house with everything you need. The swimming pool is well taken care of, lots of room for sun bathing.The kitchen is well stocked as well. Our dog had a lot of fun too. Enough room for 7 or 8 people. I would recommend the house for your next vacation.

A Great Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described. The house was well kept, had everything we needed, and the land was quite lovely for me, my friends, and our dogs. The pool was most excellent during the hot days. We definitely spent a couple hours a day just relaxing there. A lot of the 60 acres are behind the house, and it was very fun exploring them with the dogs. The location is very close to town (Oliver Springs) so it was never hard to get anything we needed. The Property Manager was very helpful, and easy to deal with. The whole trip/Owner was very stress free, and made it a perfect get away weekend. I would definitely recommend this place.
