Delightful stay at Holsten River.

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute treasure. It is in a lovely location and is very peaceful. The wildlife is very abundant with great birdwatching.

It was good to catch my first ever bass on the river and the big one got away.

The house is very well equipped and has lots of room. The only thing that would improve it would be an electric kettle for tea drinkers who don't drink coffee.

The weather was perfect in April.

Great location and beautiful outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

We had two couples stay at the house for UT/FL weekend and the house was great. The outdoor area with the fire pit and hot tub were amazing. The owners even had the wood in the pit ready to go when we arrived. The owners were perfect and exceeded our expectations. The house is only a few minutes from town, so it was very convenient. Great weekend.

Fantastic Fall Football Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at the Holston River Retreat this past weekend. 6 of us traveled to Knoxville to cheer on the Ohio University Bobcats as they played UT. The property was perfect for our needs! The bedrooms were comfortable and cozy, linens and towels were clean and fresh (plenty of towels by the way), and the kitchen had everything we could think of and then some! The outdoor patio area was utilized the most by our group - hot tub every morning and evening overlooking the river and amazing fires in the unique firepit each night, complete with S'mores! The owners were just next door and went above and beyond to make sure we had anything we needed. They checked in on us each day via phone and delivered wood for the fire each night as well. We were a bit concerned with just one bath to share amongst the 6 of us, but to our surprise, the hot water lasted even for the last shower out of 6. It turned out to not be a problem. Knoxville is one of the friendliest places we have visited and if we are able to return, we would love to stay at the Holston River Retreat again! Great Weekend!

Nice River Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful home which was great for 6 of us to stay comfortably. The kitchen was very well equipped and their were plenty of towels and toiletries available which was nice. Marti and Archie were very accommodating hosts. The river is just a short walk away so our grandson had fun throwing rocks into the water. There was a fire pit with wood and a great jacuzzi both of which we used. My only recommendation would be to provide a small row boat or paddle boat so guests could go out on the river. But our stay was really great and we would totally stay there again!
