We are Dan & Bonnie. We have been together since 1988! We met in the Navy and both retired with over 20 years. We came back to the Bristol Area because of family and the weather. Bonnie is from Michigan, which is way too cold in the winter and I am from Bluff City. It is not a bad place to hang your hat.
Dan Stophel purchased this farmhouse in 1991
This was my Grandparents house were they raised my mother, as well as her sisters and brothers. We bought it from my uncle and rented it out for a while and decided to convert it to a VRBO home. We hope it works out well and we meet some really great people.
My dad and I stayed for two nights on a fishing trip. The house was just right for our purposes. You can tell Dan takes great pride in the house; it was spotless and very clean. Bathroom and kitchen were well provisioned, good towels ect. The beds were pretty comfortable. The decorating was a bit dated, which I'm sure Dan will work on, but that didn't detract from our stay.
We had an absolutely fantastic time! Even though it rained a lot, we were able to do things in neighboring towns, and go on many walks, exploring the beautiful fall colors. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
Staying here was truly a breath if fresh air.. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We really enjoyed staying here.
This was a great place to stay for race weekend. Location is great and close to the track. No traffic either night. the house while a little dated, was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was great for making breakfast. Would stay here again.
I noticed one of the reviewers said he stayed May 28, 2013. He made a mistake, as we were there thru June 2, 2013. The house was easy to find after we discovered to turn "right" after exiting from 81 at exit 69. The poarch was a pleasure. We enjoyed all the birds, so take your binoculars. We couldn't fine a place to get to the river to fish so we tried at Steel Creek Park. no luck. The dogs from across the street came over everytime we were outside, I almost fell twice as the puppies got under foot. we had a hard time unlocking the door! on the day before we left, we were unable to unlck the door at all, called Dan and he came and fixed side and back door locks. It got hot the last 3 nites we were there and it was very uncomfortable! Amenities list Air conditioning but there was none. I did not call Dan and complain. Ants and mouse were a problem. esp. the ants! had to keep all food items in the frig. might really enjoy it in the fall.
Stayed here for a week on a motorcycling vacation/reunion with my two brothers. The place was pretty near perfect. It was clean and well kept without being so fancy that we were worried when we tracked in some grass clippings. The owner stopped by to see that everything was okay on the first morning and then left us alone after telling us to call if we needed anything- Just right! It would be hard to imagine a more quiet, cozy location and it's just a few miles to Thunder Valley.
Cell reception is terrible (which was actually kind of nice- no one bothered me) and you wont find high speed internet, but you can run into Bristol and sit at the Krystal Burger if you need to check emails, etc.
All in all, this is just the kind of place we were looking for. Definitely worth checking out!
The house is located at the foot of the Cherokee National Forest, minutes from the South Holston river, lake and dam. Great trout fishing in the river and bass fishing in the lake.
