It is a fairly new house with a newly constructed wood deck that surrounds the house, nice walkways Marina nearby and boat ramps. It comes with foosball table, keyboard synthesizer, 100 x 300FT swimming cove. The house overlooks the lake near lake Bridge with easy access to Abingdon and Bristol Raceway.

However the views of surrounding lake and mountains are awsome. Up for Cliff jumping into Lake?
lake house: This is a Lake Lodge w/large picture windows and decks.. In 2010 we added a sunroom/den overlooking the Lake,bringing the entrance closer to parking. The lodge is well furnished from kitchen to bath. You bring the food only. We wish you a fun relaxing and enjoyable stay at our beautiful mountain lake. From boating to nearby skiing and hiking the area is full of fun things to do with nature ,sightseeing and history. Easy access to many whitewater adventures/trout river fishing, flea markets, cinemas, plays and many restaurants are nearby. Located next to a marina and a public boat ramp is just across lake by bridge. Many coves to explore and fish on this beautiful pristine lake next to Cherokee National Forest..
Or you can sit and enjoy the view, watch 10 satellite movie channels and do nothing on the Lake.
The dock is across a small country road and down several flights of steps where it floats because of seasonal change in water levels .Be very careful on dock/rope adjustable.

pet policy: WE like our dogs but we leave them home when we vacation. Dogs tend to run off in woods or get in street in front of house and exposed to car traffic. .Also dogs tend to keep patrons awake due to unfamiliar surroundings. Never the less we will consider a pet that stays in sun front room and the renter is going to pay for any damages or clean up from allowing a pet inside house. Additional deposit for protection is required.We like to keep the interior house allergy free for persons with sensitivities to pets and therefore confine the pet to the front sun room area of house. Dogs that have expereince with damaging property ie young dogs, need to be kenneled.
