About Ron & Darra VanAlstyne

We currently live in Florida, and built this home as our vacation home and future retirement home. We're both originally from "up north" (NY & NJ), and although we enjoy the winter weather in Florida, we've always missed the scenery and seasons of the northeast. Tennessee gives us the benefit of the seasons and the scenery, without the harsh winters!

Ron & Darra VanAlstyne purchased this house in 2003

Why Ron & Darra VanAlstyne chose Watts Bar Lake

Watts Bar Lake is an amazing place to vacation. The lake is so large, you can spend weeks exploring all the coves and still not see everything. Plus, because of it's size, the lake is never crowded, even on holidays. The home is pretty centrally located, too, for travelers coming from almost anywhere.

Fun time

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 12, plenty of room. Very clean and well stocked. Great for jet skiing and loved sand bar island. Two beautiful decks with an awesome view. Spent lots of time floating in tubes enjoying the sun or fishing off the dock. Kids (3 to 14) stayed entertained too!

Close to home !

  • 5 of 5

There was 9 of us ,and we had plenty of room. 3 kids and 6 adults . The 2 levels in the house was great , My daughter and her family stayed on the lower level ,my husband ,son and girlfriend and myself stayed on the top floor . The house was stocked with everything we need except an ice cream scoop , but it has one now ! LOL The house was very clean, and the sunsets were beautiful !!!! We will go back to the lake house as soon as we can . We had as much fun here as the beach and a whole lot closer . Donna Hawley

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Everything is CLEAN..... It is secluded and beautiful, but also close enough to anything you might need. The dock for the boats made it nice for our crew, since we were there fishing. Everyone in our group was impressed, and that's rare. We will be back. Highly recommended !!!

Perfect for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our recent family reunion! It was exceptionally clean with a fabulous deck overlooking the private dock on the lake. All the rooms were spacious and comfortable. We hope to come back for our next reunion!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place! My family and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. We will be coming back next year! It was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The lake was beautiful and the dock and porch were a treat during sunset. I cannot wait to return!

Great Home with Lake Access

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable lakefront home, with nice dock & views. Kitchen very tight, but otherwise very comfortable for our group of four generations. Property very steep, so not ideal for very young and anyone with disabilities.
