About John Helm

Hi my name is John ,and I am the proud owner of this beautiful property. I live in Los Angeles , California with my wife and my son and 2 daughters . i work for the Public Works Dept. for the City of Bell Gardens (32 years) . I am an electrician by trade but I also deal with other projects that involve other disciplines .

John Helm purchased this lodge in 2007

Why John Helm chose Tennessee

I was looking for a vacation home , preferably a house on a lake . We searched for about 6 months on the internet , but when it was all said and done ,we settled for the this gem on Pine Lake in friendly Tennessee. I actually found this property advertised on Ebay. We negotiated with the owners for about 6 months and finally came to terms. This is probably the best decision I have ever make in my life . We are truly blessed.

What makes this lodge unique

I guess that the best benefit of owning this home is that it gives us a chance to travel to a different place and meet new people . Also we have created some great memories with family and friends here and will continue for years to come.

My family & I stayed 5days/4nights at this beautiful lake house for my husband & I Anniversary & for the Labor Day weekend! The house is absolutely beautiful!!! It was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Including a baby gate for my 1yo son!! Our family loves to fish so this house was the perfect!! We also rented a jet ski from April (the house caretaker) which we had a BLAST!!!! Speaking of April, she is soooo awesome & sweet!!! So is her husband!! Walmart is only 20min away if not Dollar General is closer if you do not want to make that drive!! Everyone is sooo friendly!! We really love this house so we are planning to book our next vacation soon!! (really soon) Thank you Mr. John Helm for allowing us to make great memories with your beautiful lake house!! You will hear from us soon!! Thank you all again!! Can't wait to return!!!!

Fantastic House and location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at the Country Lake House for a relaxing Mother, daughter weekend. We enjoyed the boat dock and relaxing in the water on rafts. We also brought our 2 furry babies and they loved the water too. The house was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Angie made us feel welcome and answered all our questions promptly. I highly recommend this property.

Bachelor Weekend Done Right!

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible. We had initially planned on five of us being there, but we had one that had to cancel last minute. More than enough room for four people. As mentioned in other reviews, April the caretaker, was as good as gold. We enjoyed the boat rental as well. We fished off the pier without much really small white bass. We took to the lake and trolled with crankbaits. We had success here. Caught a few large mouth bass, a catfish, and a crappie, with this method. The deck and boat were our mainstays. We put the little wrought iron table to good use. We BBQ'd and did all of our cooking on an outdoor burner that we brought with us. We got some incredible pictures and made some lasting memories(some of which we will never remember). We plan on coming back in the future, but we will bring our wives that time. We even watched Forrest Gump on VHS for some late night nostalgia. Only recommendation to future guests, grab all of your groceries you need in Lexington on your way in. It beats having to keep returning to town.

On behalf of my friends and I, we would like to thank John and April for everything. We look forward to heading your way in the future.

Great place! Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was excellent - large and inviting, with the best lake views ever. We loved sitting in the cozy living room with the fire, eating in the sun-room while watching the ducks on the lake, and relaxing while fishing off of the dock. Everyone we met was super friendly, and the kids loved playing in the backyard. We would love to come back!
