Overview

Tims Ford Lake Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Perched 50 feet above Tims Ford lake, this retreat has great Wide Open Views across the lake. A Large Floating Dock is perfect for Swimming, Boating, Water Skiing, Tubing, Fishing or Relaxing. The Master Bedroom has an incredible Lake View through 9 foot wide sliding glass doors with a Hot Tub just outside on the 400 square foot covered patio. In the evening, the living room can become a Home Theater with a 10' Screen and Surround Sound. A nearby Licensed Massage Therapist is available for on-site (even on dock) massages! There is a small universal gym in the second bedroom. The living room has a sofa and two Rocker Recliners. A community Boat Ramp is 500 yds from the house. A Pedal Boat is available year round to explore the lake or nearby Goose Island. Originally designed as a 'mother-in-law' apartment, this 900 square foot property is the lower half of a lake home with a private entrance and sound-proofing.

This property is best for a romantic retreat for a couple, or a couple with one or two children who are old enough to swim and safely navigate outside stairs to the lake. It can be used for two couples, but there is only one bathroom and the second bedroom doesn't have any windows.

The owners travel frequently and are often not present. If the owners are present, they're usually 'invisible' and the backyard and dock are for exclusive use by the guests during their stay. We do have neighbors on both sides. One of them has small children, and we would prefer they not learn 'new words' :). So, this property is not a good choice for loud or late night partying.

Why Dave or Lilli Stevens chose Tims Ford Lake

We moved here for work reasons and fell in love with the area and people. It's a slower paced life in a beautiful surrounding but with plenty of opportunities to play. You can either relax and soak up rays or fish ... or you can spike your adrenaline with water sports. We're very proud of our house. We travel frequently and thought it would be a waste not to share this little slice of paradise.

A beautiful part of Tennessee

Seldom have I been amazed at how clearly and accurately this rental unit was described on the rental website. But I was on this one! Everything was exactly as published and then some! It was spotless, welcoming, and wonderfully cozy for a n autumn weekend away. The owners were attentive yet very unobtrusive . I can't wait to come back!

Amazing = This Lake House

  • 5 of 5
I am really unsure I want to write a review for this lake house. I don't want anyone to know about this beautiful place so I won't have a problem renting again!!! If the word gets out, I may never be able to come back.

My family is now calling this our TN home.

We joked that we could come with just our clothing and be able to live for a week with all the pantry items available. It was fun "snooping" around to see everything that was ours to use as we pleased- food, toiletries, laundry, books, movie collection, video games, hot tub, projector, lake needs.....

The house is beautiful and modern with plenty of room. Yes, the steps are very steep to the lake (and a lot of them), but if you don't have any health issues, some exercise will do you some good. If you want privacy and quiet, you won't be disappointed. We have stayed in other cabins on Tims Ford and they were all old, outdated, dirty, and small.

Dave and Lilli are unbelievable hosts. I guarrantee you will not be disappointed. THANK YOU!!!

View of lake was great.

  • 4 of 5
it has a steep climb back up from the boatdock, which was great exercise, but if not physically able to do so, this will limit your outside activity. We forgot a jacket and the owners actually were going thru our hometown, and met me to return it personally. That speaks for itself. Great people!! It has a cozy, welcome home feeling. Very clean and even had cookies waiting for our arrival. We will go back, hopefully weather will cooperate next time.

Best place ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
I went here to get some me time. I had the perfect place. I got to relax, read, fish and best of all the view Of the lake. Could not been any better. The fall colors was changing n I have never seen anything so pretty. The pics on net do not come close to seeing this place first hand. The owners was the best people you could ever meet. The cinn. Bread was the best that they made n left for me. Everything u could ever need is already there. All u need is you and your food. I will go back again and again. (To the owners) your home is a blessing and thank you for letting me share your blessing with you. You are great people and made me fell safe as It was just me spending my me time. THANK YOU

Wonderful little getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome! There are two beds and a fold-out couch bed, so our party of 6 had no problem with finding a place to sleep. We walked in to a plate of cookies, along with a kitchen that had a lot of food to choose from! Some of it is stocked and some is left from other guests, but it's all up for grabs. It is located in a very quiet and peaceful area of the lake, which made for a very relaxing weekend. Lilli and Dave are wonderful hosts and very nice! It's a great deal for a great price!

Map

Car: necessary

Tims Ford is a 10,700 acre lake with 246 miles of beautiful shoreline. Located in a secluded community, but just 10 minutes from local restaurants, a historic cinema and a Wal-Mart. The Jack Nicholas designed Bear Trace Golf Course was named one of the 'Top Ten Places You Can Play', and it's a 20 minute drive or 5 minutes by boat! For history buffs, less than 30 minutes away is Jack Daniels, the oldest distillery in the US. Sewanee and the University of the South, along with exceptional dining, are a 35 minute scenic drive up the mountain. The Bonnaroo Music Festival is also 35 minutes away. Less than forty-five minutes to the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, and some of the best hicking trails in the Southeast, such as Fiery Gizzard and Stone Door. We are also an hour from Huntsville and the US Space Center, and 90 minutes from Nashville and Chattanooga.
