Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home on a quiet rural road by an awesome cold water mountain creek. We stayed here overnight while traveling further south. Allen, the owner, was very accommodating and went out of his way to make this feel like home. The house was immaculate and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with lots of staples and all the fixings needed for good coffee. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Peacefull and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Benhams for five nights and enjoyed the quiet location. We had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was packed with everything we needed and we used the washer/dryer a couple of times. We loved the rockers on the porch for morning coffee. Thanks for providing such a nice place to stay and for your quick response with our questions.

The house was very nice, better than the pictures. It was very clean, comfortable, and stocked great. The owner is very nice and good response time with questions. But the internet is sketchy. Overall great stay.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Allen's place The Benhams Lodge. Quiet, clean, comfortable, there was nothing more we could ask for. The owner had a well stocked kitchen with all of the essentials. The property was nice to walk and well maintained.

Allen stopped by to say hello and we invited him in for a visit. Lovely guy, great host.

We'd highly recommend staying here for a peaceful retreat from the busy world out there. Very proximate to everything.

Best Rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Benhams Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. I cannot recommend it highly enough! We fly into the Tri Cities area several times a year to visit our 3 children and grandbabies and have rented from Abingdon to Boone Lake. Our entire family agreed that Benhams Lodge was absolutely fantastic and they loved the homey feel and country setting. Believe me, the pictures of this home do "not" do it justice. This home was hidden in trees and is virtually invisible from the road. My grown daughter thoroughly enjoyed the cucumber garden and the blueberry bush (I just hope that she left some for the next visitors!). In addition, I have photographic evidence that my grown sons enjoyed the Guitar Hero game a little too much!

There is plenty of parking and the lodge is sparkling clean. The owner Allen was a peach of a guy and the thoughful host had the house stocked with bowls of snacks and bottles of water (super nice touch). We enjoyed sitting on the wrap-around porch, rocking in the rocking chairs while we laughed and talked and the creek running in front of the property added to the magical setting. If you don't mind the beautiful country drive (10-15 minute) from restaurant row at exit 7, then this is the place to be. My parents in their mid 70s visited also and between the 2 of them have several mechanical body parts (knees & hips) and I am happy to say that they had no trouble manuvering into the house and the first floor master bedroom worked perfectly for them. Benham's Lodge is a hidden treasure. We will certainly be back!
