LAKEFRONT HOME WITH PRIVATE DOCK, WOODED SETTING, CLOSE TO SMOKY MTNS

Dandridge House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 9

All the comforts of a Modern Home nestled in 3 acres of Secluded Woods.

Set on a beautiful cove on Douglas Lake, this property is perfect for families or friends who enjoy diverse entertainment. The lake provides excellent swimming, fishing, and water sports; and the location gives quick access to all the attractions of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Dandridge, the second oldest town in Tennessee, is just 10 minutes away.

Douglas Lake is one of the best fishing lakes in Tennessee! Our particular cove has good fishing and excellent swimming right off the dock behind the house. The dock sits in 15-25 ft of water from late April until September, and is protected from lake traffic, so its convenient for both swimming and boating. The closest boat ramp is just 5 minutes away.

Enjoy any of these nearby activities or simply stay at the house and relax in the hot tub, watch the deer and wild turkeys, and enjoy the beautiful vistas.

This house is relatively new to the vacation rental market (since summer 2011), and we have had a great response so far. We listen closely to our guests and make improvements based on the feedback. We set up a propane gas grill on the deck just outside the kitchen, repaired the hot tub, added a TV, and set up fast wi-fi internet access. We have also expanded the deck and are now adding a gazebo.

About Paul Bing

We live in Chattanooga for work but dream about a time we can move back to Dandridge. Until then, our house will remain a home away from home for ourselves and for anyone who is wants to vacation there.

Paul Bing purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul Bing chose Dandridge

It was an easy decision to buy this lakefront home. Being passionate sailors, this house gives us the secluded wooded feeling and access to a huge lake at the same time.

Our group of nine loved the property.

  • 4 of 5
Our stay was wonderful but a few small changes could have made it even more comfortable. The kitchen cookware, plates, silverware could stand to be checked and restocked. The house needs some better skillets, more mixing and serving bowls and dishes and silverware for at least the nine people it is listed as housing. The house also did not have a DVD player, although the listing lists that it should have one. Another way to improve the property would be to screen in the deck with the table, off of the kitchen area. We loved that area and spent a lot of time playing cards there but found it challenging in the evening as the bugs came out. Otherwise, the trip was awesome. The house was very roomy for 9 and was quite clean and comfortable. This house would be perfect for spending most of your time at the lake but if you intend to spend a lot of your vacation going to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge or hiking then plan to spend a lot of time in the car. The distance might not seem all that far but the traffic makes the trip seem very long. The privacy of the cove was spectacular. We had the whole cove to ourselves and spent lots of time hanging out of the dock and floating in the water. This was a wonderful way to spend a week and everyone in our group would rent this house again.

Nice property on the lake.

  • 4 of 5
Overall our stay was a positive one. The property is a very nice size considering the cost of rental for a week. We had 6 adults and two children stay there and never felt cramped or lacking for space. The owner was very easy to work with throughout the entire process and his brother, who is the caretaker, was also very accommodating and available,

We chose this property because it was on the lake and we wanted something a little off the beaten path, which it is. Keep in mind though, that it's on top of a hill and you have a long way down many steps to get to the water. This wasn't a problem for us, but I just wanted to note it for anyone reading. The dock was disconnected from the steps, but we were able to get it back into place enough to make it useable, although the water was over the bottom few steps, so you got wet feet accessing the dock. Also not a problem for us, but some folks may take issue with the dock situation.

I saw that some other reviewers questioned the cleanliness of the house. We did not see any mouse droppings, but I will say that if you're looking for a pristine rental, this one may not be for you. While it was clean and in reasonable condition I would consider this more like staying at a relatives house than staying at a high end rental, like others I've been at in the past. Window sills needed cleaning, and there were spider webs here and there, especially on the outside of the windows and in the screens. Nothing horrible but not the cleanest I've seen by far.

My biggest complaint would be the cookware. If you plan on doing any cooking with a skillet, bring your own cookware. The skillets are cheap and paper thin, and we struggled to make a decent pancake with what they had there. Other than that the kitchen is well stocked with the other cooking utensils and serving items.

I saw someone mention the poor condition of the decks and I have no idea what they're talking about. We spent a lot of time on the decks and they are all safe and pleasant to use. Our kids played out there daily.

We enjoyed this property and the surrounding area very much. I would recommend this property with the readers understanding that it is a lived in and used home, and don't go into it thinking you're getting "Ritz Carleton" level accommodations. For the price it's well worth it.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property so much! We had three familys stay here, everyone had their room with that they needed. Downstairs is game room and HUGE master room with bathroom, that area was PERFECT for my sisters family with two younger kids ages 6,8. They were able to be loud downstairs without waking anyone upstairs! Our main concern was accommodating our 86 yr old grandmother, so the small room on the main floor right next to the bathroom and kitchen was the most ideal situation we could ask for. It let Grandma be right there with all of us, but also able to go to bed early and use the restroom or kitchen at her convienance. We often found ourselves at the kitchen table playing board games and in the living room just relaxing in the beautiful open room. The views are amazing and the majority of my photos were of them. Upstairs is three rooms, one smaller room that was great for my younger sister with no husband or kids, then there was a slightly larger room with bigger bed for my mother and her husband. In between those rooms was a huge bathroom with held washer and dryer which came in handy with all the little ones running around and their messes. lastly the master room upstairs was PERFECT for my husband and I, it had a full bathroom in the connecting room as well. We have a small child so it was perfect little (it is actually huge) room for us with tons of privacy for a little one and momma. I loved that I could shower and bathe baby before everyone got up for the day without waking any other guest, it was really the prefect room. I was SO pleased how well the property accomidated all of us. I keep using the word Perfect but that's exactly what it was. We LOVED all the decks to hang out on. To be honest I didn't know there was a hot tub but you can imagine the excitement on everyones faces when we found that!! My husband fished all week and loved the floating dock. There are many steps leading down to the dock and at times it was a bit steep, but we did not mind at all and enjoyed every moment. Paul is a wonderful host and was VERY good about communitcation throughout the process of booking the rent up into following up to see if my family had a great time. We are 100% going to book this property again in the future and cant wait to come back to visit douglas lake!!!

Sadly disappointed

  • 1 of 5
Our second stay in this property. Having had such a wonderful stay in 2012 (see my review below) we were soooo looking forward to our return visit. Could not have been more disappointed. What a dreadful difference a year made. House was filthy. Owner's brothers Boxer dog roaming fee and pooping throughout property. Decks attached to house structurally unsound. Window coverings torn and broken. Large concrete block under sink as 'temporary repair' (?) Mouse droppings in several kitchen drawers. Dead mouse in main floor toilet. and the list goes on. Cockroaches and millipedes everywhere. When we approached the owner he did not seem to think any of this such a big deal. He even told us that the renters after us in the property had also noted the mouse droppings in the kitchens drawers but it didn't concern or worry them (really ??) In 2012 this was a wonderful clean well-maintained property. In 2013 it was horribly unkempt and dirty. Such a dreadful shame because of our previous experience. We did after much correspondence receive a partial refund from the owner (although not enough to make up for a ruined vacation) We can only hope that he took our comments to heart and has cleaned up and repaired his house to be in a fit and healthy state for other renters to experience. I am quite sure he will respond with some clever 'positioning' but I have much correspondence which would disprove any rebuttal he could come up with. Future renters be aware............!

Spacious lakefront home amidst trees

  • 4 of 5
This large property has 5 bedrooms on three levels, along with 3.5 baths. The layout is perfect for up to 9 people, with plenty of spaces to spread out, including two porches, several living areas, the gazebo, and the dock. You can't see much of the lake from the porches because of the trees, but the shade keeps things nice and cool. The cove is quiet. This location is convenient for visiting the Smoky Mountains, Knoxville, and Oak Ridge.

NICE PROPERTY

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at this property and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is in a very nice location and was able to accomodate a very large party of us (around a dozen people for part of the week).

Overall, the house is well maintained and looks great. I was particularly pleased with the quality of the bedding and the climate control system. The owner also went to the effort of having an extension cord run down to the dock for us to charge our trolling motor batteries.

Anyone renting needs to realize there are about 100 steps to get from the house to the dock as clearly portrayed in the pictures. The steps are well maintained and shouldn't be an issue for healthy adults.

We would definitely like to return again sometime.
