About Bill Wright
I live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. I am from Tennesee and was raised in Johnson City and Nashville. I have lived in New York, New Jersey, Michigan,and several other south eastern states. I have 3 grown children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. We all love the lake and the unique log home with the breathtaking view.
Bill Wright purchased this House in 1988
Why Bill Wright chose Smithville
We love Tennesse and Center Hill Lake because of the beauty of the area. It is peaceful but not far from more activity if you would choose to go to Nashville for the day or to Knoxville. We had always wanted a log house and we were so happy when one of our children found the house for us. Once we saw the view and the house we knew it was for us and our family to enjoy when we are not renting for others to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
The beautiful setting that gives us the use of the lake for swimming or a chance to go boating, golfing and hiking on the beautiful Tennessee trails. Just sitting on the deck watching the wildlife and enjoying the view is a treat.

House is very nice and the view is gorgeous. Here Lakefront means the property is on the lake. You can not get to the lake from the house. The only way to get to the lakefront of the property is by boat and you still cannot step on the property from the lake. The pictures are accurate. Where you see grass is the only part of the 5-7 acres that can be accessed. The shower tile and soap trays were not very clean. The soap dishes all had previously used bar soap left out for us to use. There is no Washer, dryer or hair dryer in this house as listed in amenities. I looked after we got home and under general it says to ask owner about washer/dryer. Grill was dirty and and grill brush available was completely worn down to the plastic. Knowing all this now if we come back we will be prepared for the negatives.
The house is high above lake as pictures show. People seem to love our view and it is one of the best on the lake. Part of the area on the property is wooded and many enjoy the wildlife. The grassed area is large enough for plenty of parking and the washer and dryer are there if needed, but one needs to ask as stated. The hairdryer is there in the upstairs bathroom for anyone to use if they wish. It usually is in a basket with the curling irons. I will ask my cleaning person to take care of the other issues.
Best view of Center Hill Lake
I got married in the backyard and it was beautiful! Perfect place with a perfect view. We will definitely book this place again!
The house was amazing!! The view spectacular!! Susan was so nice to deal with! We will be back!!!
Thank you and we are happy you enjoyed the view. Look forward to your future visit!
End of the road seclusion, great fire place and back porch. If you are looking for an updated cabin this is not it, kinda rustic and the view just makes it magical.
Wonderful host and very responsive. No issues.
Thanks for the very kind review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. The fireplace is always a popular attraction in the winter. Summer is popular for those that enjoy the lake and sitting on the front deck and relaxing.
October ‘17 TN visit
We absolutely loved the cabin! We knew there would be a lake view but having never visiting the area had no idea how awesome it would be! The cabin gives you a rustic feel without feeling you are roughing it. Well equipped & furnished. Would recommend everyone to stay here.
We had an awesome time. The cabin is beautiful.
Beautiful cabin. Amazing view.
Thank you for your review. I know I need to have pictures done so people that might be interested in a neat old Log Home might better see how nice it is in a secluded area with a beautiful hard to beat view that is close to Hurricane Marina.
I added the 60 inch smart TV in hopes that folks might like sitting before the fireplace to watch ball games in the cold weather. The view is always pretty regardless of the time of year.
