About the property

Bunkhouse, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This bunkhouse is a converted garage with a large concrete pad that is great to park a camper on.

In the winter our place makes a great executive furnished apartment. Ask about monthly rates for winter!

At the bottom of our lot is 50 foot frontage on the lake. There is a dock there to swim and boat off of.

Interior – Yes we now have WIFI! You will love the interior of our Bunkhouse. It is well finished space with all you need in a little bit of room.

We also have 3 fishing rods and reels (and tackle box) in the closet. All you need is some worms to catch some great big catfish! There are 3 picnic tables around the property to enjoy a snack as well as a portable fireplace and a charcoal grill!

We some classic family fun games to play in the closet as well (Clue, playing cards, and Rook). We built a small “laptop” desk in the main living area with a super view of the lake as you work. I use AT&T for my laptop internet and get 4G service at the cabin or just use our WIFI service at the bunkhouse.

We have two flat screen TVs that get Charter TV cable channels. We also have two air conditioners at the bunkhouse. One in the bedroom and one in the main room.

Inside the closet you will find two outdoor folding chairs to relax with and there is a 4 person picnic table for your use as well.

Parking is not an issue as you have 1.5 acres of land to use. Not a problem if you have several cars or even your boat and trailer etc.

The morning and evening views are just amazing to put it mildly.

You are just a short distance about 1 mile from the German Creek Boat Marina and 10 minutes from Morristown. Here you will find College Square Mall, Walmart and many other shops. You can rent a pontoon there and park it at our small dock. Feel free to call (423) 248-4714 for more information on the boat rental.

Canoe (3 man), Kayaks (2), Paddle Board – For an extra 50.00 (each item) on your stay we will bring you a some water equipment and life jackets to enjoy the lake with. Just let us know in advance.

If you like to get away and enjoy the lake but really come back into an incredible decorated and quality built bunkhouse, this is the place for you.

About Shawn Wilmoth

I enjoy the challenge of real estate projects, running our Salvage Unlimited, and traveling across Europe.

We live near the bunkhouse and take great pride in keeping it in tip top shape for your rental experience.

If you like Cherokee lake you'll love the Bunkhouse at Cherokee and the privacy we have on our 1.5 acres!

Shawn Wilmoth purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Shawn Wilmoth chose Cherokee Lake

We bought this great place as a real estate investment and wanted to remodel the cute little rock covered garage into living area to enjoy the lake.

I designed this bunkhouse similar to efficiency apartments I have seen in Europe. Small but adequate spaces with simple design and style. I hope you enjoy.

What makes this bungalow unique

It is hard to find a finished space for rental in our area with, lake frontage, camper parking and hookups and top rated living space. Our bookings of repeat visitors seems to go up every year. You can make our place yours anytime you want to come down to Cherokee Lake.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

all is good. clean. quiet . relaxing. I did not expect all the pots and pans ,linens towels, TP, body wash, and soap these people go above what one would call a bunkhouse ........ My son and I loved it .A week of fishing and

kayaking was good for the soul.. Ok one complaint the hill was a bit much for an old man with a bad back , would do it again.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend at the bunkhouse was comfortable and cozy. Amazing how nice they have made such a small space. Our only minor complaint was that you could never really get the shower hot, it was just warm. Overall great place to stay though!

We really enjoyed our stay at the bunkhouse. We took our fishing boat, kayaks and food and had a very relaxing time. The place is exactly as described and is clean. Cherokee lake was down several feet so the dock was no longer floating. However, there are multiple boat ramps within a very short drive.

If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet get away, the bunkhouse is a great option! We will return.

The bunk house

  • 3 of 5

The property was very clean but small. The bed was small not much support. The tv in the bedroom did not work. The one in the living was fine. There is some water damage and mold in the living room so if you have allergies this might bother you. The bathroom sink is very slow draining and the air conditioner filter needs to be cleaned as it will cool better. Now with all this being said all of these things are minor and easily fixed. The property owner is easy to work with and very responsive. The view is beautiful . Do not overlook this property we enjoyed our weekend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We really try to keep our place clean! We appreciate you saying how responsive we are. We really stick to our phones in case you need anything. Glad you loved our view. It is great. So glad you enjoyed your weekend at our place. We hope to have you back soon. The TV in the bedroom works but likely the cable box had gotten turned off (sorry if we had known we could have helped over the phone).

Small but roomy feeling lake getaway

  • 4 of 5

Found the bunkhouse to be a comfortable place to stay. Really enjoyed the large yard and patio table, my grandkids came to visit for the day and we cooked out, fished from the dock and shot basketball. The lake is a good stroll down a hill but we went up and down a couple time and I heard no complaints. Quite neighborhood so it's a great place to recharge and listen to nature!
