There is a gas grill and an outdoor fireplace adjacent to the porch. The home is nicely furnished with crown molding and many extras on the inside. Access to a private community boat dock slip is nearby and optional use of A PONTOON BOAT is included in the rental. Elf Point is a quiet community that is great for biking, walking or running, with a large wooded TVA forest on the end of the point.

The full rental fee is due 10 days prior to arrival. Cleaning and pet fees are also due 10 days prior to arrival. The Pontoon boat will be full of fuel and oil but subsequent fill-ups are the responsibility of the user and the Pontoon must be left full of gas and oil.

Christmas getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I chose this house because of the bedrooms/bathrooms configuration. Traveling with my husband, 3 kids, sister, mother and grandmother, it’s always difficult finding a home that’s both cozy but spacious but this house gave us all the space we needed but comfort we wanted. The home has a wonderful kitchen and although the dining room set up is a bit difficult with as many people as we had we made it work and enjoyed our meals as a family! My kids made sure to take full advantage of the ping pong table and we even bbq’d in 30* weather! The best part of this house however, is the back deck. Just sitting out back on the comfy seats listening to leaves rustling and wind blowing is the best therapy for a frazzled mind! I only wished we could’ve stayed longer! Mr. Cliff was awesome, very attentive and eager to help. He showed up the day we arrived with a Christmas tree and a wreath since we would be spending Christmas in the home! We also took our 17 lb wiener dog and he loved going for walks around elf school and the lake. Relatively close to grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations. Just an all around great house that’s suitable for large families looking for a retreat from the manic every day life! We will definitely be coming back! Thank you Mr. Cliff for all your hospitality!

It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and we are so happy that your Christmas and Holiday in the Mountains was all you hoped it would be. Thank you also for making the point, for our future guests, that mountain lakes can also provide a great Winter experience!!

We always travel with our dogs and we were so happy to find this wonderful pet friendly house! We had a great time! Patterson House was spacious and peaceful and had everything we needed. The master bedrooms were beautiful and we all loved the back porch!

Cliff was very accommodating and patient while we tried to decide if we would need the boat. We hope to stay at this wonderful house again sometime!

An Unforgettable Eclipse Experience

  • 4 of 5

On first impression, the exterior of the house is not very inviting. In my opinion the front entrance and landscaping could be better maintained.

On a more positive note, the interior of the house was very nice and we had plenty of room for 3 couples. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch and using the pontoon boat.

Cliff Hood was very prompt in his responses to any problems or concerns that we had.

A suggestion: Bath mats for each bathroom. Getting in and out of the shower was a bit tricky for us senior citizens.

Overall, we had a fun trip and enjoyed out stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words and suggestions. Glad you folks had an enjoyable stay. I updated the housekeeper about the bath mats and also freshened the mulch and did some trimming of the abundant shrubs and flowers. Please visit us again!

A nice quiet wooded location

  • 3 of 5

If you're looking for an out of the way place where hardly anyone can find you, then this could be for you. It is not high end and there is no view of the lake, to speak of there are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, just no parking for more than two small vehicles. The property is in a moderate state of disrepair and in sore need of a makeover. If you can put this behind you and enjoy the pontoon boat provided it makes up for the lack of detail, towels, and linens. It sounds like the motor on the boat needs a set of new spark plugs or guests have no clue that the gas and oil mixture on this two stroke Evinrude is 50:1.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the house was not a good fit for this group from South Florida. The gentleman that I rented to and corresponded with was very nice and did not express any unhappiness with the house. The only issues that he reported to me was a text that the garbage needed emptying 2 days after arrival. They filled a 50 gallon rolling curb canister in 2 days which is somewhat unusual for our guests. I asked my helper to go by and empty it, which he did. The only other issue reported to me was the coffee maker stopped working. The guest graciously agreed to pick up another and I sent reimbursement after he checked out. Upon leaving he sent a text to me saying that they had vacated and ended the text with, "...Thanks very much!" Again, no indication of a problem. I was at the house when the party arrived and was there to check the housekeeping and preparation for their arrival. I met everyone and took the gentleman over to the Pontoon Boat that goes with the rental (as I always do) to go over the operating and safety information. As part of my presentation, we cover the engine, gas, marina location and detailed instructions about the boat. The boat does not need "plugs". It was tuned in June with new plugs, by the nearby marina. When we returned to the house a lady ran out yelling, "there are no towels in the house!." I went in and showed them that all three bed/bath suites has two full sets of bath, hand and wash towels and another full set in the extra bath. I provided extra towels from the utility closet. They actually brought more people than was listed on the reservation so it was a bit crowded (I did not make an issue about the extra people). As for the house, it is an older home but has been totally renovated with all new fixtures about 10 year back and we added a new kitchen and porch when we bought it about 8 years ago. It is very clean and well kept and not in "moderate disrepair". You can easily park three normal size vehicles and guests in the past have also parked boats in the yard. Sorry to be so long with this response but I do respectfully disagree with several of the points in this review.
