Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Perched 50 feet above Tims Ford lake, this retreat has Wide Open Views across the lake. A Large Floating Dock is perfect for Swimming, Boating, Water Skiing, Tubing, Fishing or Relaxing. The Master Bedroom has an incredible Lake View through 9 foot wide sliding glass doors with a Hot Tub just outside on the 400 square foot covered patio. In the evening, the living room can become a Home Theater with a 10' pull down screen and Surround Sound. There is a small universal gym in the second bedroom. The living room has a sofa and two Rocker Recliners. A community Boat Ramp is 500 yards from the house. Kayaks are available year round to explore the lake or nearby Goose Island. Originally designed as a 'mother-in-law' apartment, this 800 square foot property is the lower half of a lake home with a private entrance and sound-proofing.

This property is best for a romantic retreat for a couple, or a couple with one or two children old enough to swim and safely navigate the stairs to the lake. It can be used for two couples, but there is only one bathroom and the second bedroom doesn't have any windows. There is only parking room for two cars.

The owners travel frequently and are often not present. If the owners are present, they're usually 'invisible' and the backyard and dock are for exclusive use by the guests during their stay. We do have neighbors on both sides. One of them has small children, and we would prefer they not learn 'new words' :). So, this property is NOT a good choice for loud or late night partying. However, we can often provide special requests such as having a chilled bottle of champagne, cake or flowers waiting upon arrival for special occasions.

We also now have very high speed wireless Comcast Internet (50mbps +).

About Lilli or Dave Stevens

Dave is a former Navy F18 pilot and Lilli was in the medical field. They have an e-commerce business and Dave is an author. His Fuzed Trilogy is ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year & won the Eric Hoffer and eBook Epic Award (complimentary copy provided :).

Why Lilli or Dave Stevens chose Tims Ford Lake

We moved here for work reasons and fell in love with the area and people. It's a slower paced life in a beautiful surrounding but with plenty of opportunities to play. We travel frequently and thought it would be a waste not to share this little slice of paradise.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We did not want to leave at the end of our stay. The owners were fantastic and had provided some extras that we did not think to bring. You will be sad to leave if you stay here.

This lovely little place is a real gem. Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several VRBO properties and this one had everything a vacationing person would need. The owners thought of everything.

The view is wonderful. Tim's Ford is a quiet and peaceful place to stay. The owners provided several fun water toys for the lake, a hot tub, a large screen t.v. and in case you like to read, there are plenty of books on hand.

I would return in a heartbeat.

Thanks for a great time in Tennessee!

We stayed here years ago without the kids and enjoyed sharing this beautiful property with them this weekend. The weather didn't cooperate as much as we would have like but it was still a relaxing couple of days. We took out the paddle boat and fished from the dock. We enjoyed a few movies on the "big screen" and sat in the hot tub while listening to a gentle rain.

Tims Ford is a 10,700 acre lake with 246 miles of beautiful shoreline and less than 20% of shoreline development. Located in a secluded community, but just 12 minutes from local restaurants, a historic cinema and a Wal-Mart. The Jack Nicholas designed Bear Trace Golf Course was named one of the 'Top Ten Places You Can Play', and it's a 20 minute drive or 7 minutes by boat! For history buffs, less than 30 minutes away in Lynchburg is the Jack Daniels Distillery (the oldest in the US) and Wine Tasting, both open for tours and tasting. Sewanee and the University of the South, along with exceptional dining, are a 35 minute scenic drive up the mountain. The Bonnaroo Music Festival is also 35 minutes away. Less than 45 minutes to the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, and some of the best hiking trails in the Southeast, such as Fiery Gizzard and Stone Door. We are also an hour from Huntsville and the US Space Center (rides, museum & Space Camp), and 75 minutes to Chattanooga and 90 minutes to Nashville.
