Overview

Douglas Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-10)

Private home with 3 BR's and 3 1/2 baths. It sits in a private subdivision (you don't see any neighbors!) 15 miles from Sevierville, 19 miles from Dollywood.

(DISCLAIMER: The house sits on a mountainside lot, with a private dock and access to Douglas Lake. However Douglas Lake will only have water in this area, summer season, between May 1 and Oct. 1. It is a strenuous walk to the water! A 4 wheel drive, Geo Tracker is provided to help with transportation up and down the road. There is a boat launch in the subdivision, but a larger one at a state park nearby.)

You have privacy AND accessibility! During the summer, our best kept secret is the excellent wakeboarding and tubing. The cove has a wide long swing, leading to a 1/2 mile stretch to the main lake. The water is like glass! From the most struggling beginner to accomplished wake jumper, you can ski until you ache. You share it with only a few evening locals and the occasional week-ender. You can also fish right off our private dock or paddle out to shady hollows.

Shopping your thing? All the wonders of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Sevierville (along with the shows, Dollywood, and Flea Markets!)are a short 20 minute drive. You can visit the fall craft shows, and enjoy the excitement, then be sitting on your deck with a cup of coffee, enjoying the wonderful fall colors for breakfast and dinner.

If boating isn't your thing, within 30 minutes, you can be white water rafting, or hiking many of the Great Smokey Mountain trails.....again, some for your beginners, to the more serious hikers in the crowd (my sister and I did a 17 mile hike one day!)

Want a slower pace, a real vacation? There are 10 quiet towns within an hour's drive, each boasting its local bit of history, and antique stores. Scenic drives in the country for fall or spring color will take you to out-of-the way corners. Even Knoxville is only 45 minutes away for sports fans, the zoo, and those wanting a little different day trip.

Details on the house..... It is set-up to accommodate up to 10 people, with living areas to gather together, or slip away for some down time. Even the decks have separate sitting/eating areas!

1st floor is a game room with full bath, laundry room, and sofa bed, TV- perfect for kids or teens.

2nd floor is the main living area with wrap-around decks and windows. Open concept living room, dining room, kitchen, with vaulted ceilings and great views. Couch is a pull-out for extra sleeping.

Master suite is on this floor - with 4 foot shower, and jetted tub - private door onto decks for morning coffee.

Upstairs has a small sitting area, 2 bedrooms and a full bath.

All bedrooms have TV's and VCR/DVD players. There are 3 Direct TV boxes - main living area, master BR and upstairs. There is an outdoor grill and tables and seating for visiting. NO INTERNET at this time

Basically equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, as well as a water softener. All linens (bed, bath, kitchen) are included.

About Jane Shrader

We are school teachers with a large (and growing) family!

Jane Shrader purchased this house in 2006

Why Jane Shrader chose Douglas Lake

We love all that East Tennessee has to offer! Some of us are shoppers! (Pigeon Forge Outlets! and great retail locations) - some of us are theme park aficionados (Dollywood and Ripley's). I'm a hiker and love all that the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer. And my husband loves flea markets and out-0f-the-way corners! And we all love the water....this is some of the most fabulous water-skiing and wake-boarding around. Truly a great secret! We are teaching all of the little ones to swim and ski!.

What makes this house unique

We are in a private subdivision with great neighbors - yet we see no one from the house itself....just lake and mountains, and trees. I'm sitting at the dining room table as I write this and can see out through the soft fog and gray light on this Christmas morning.

But we can get to everything we need (from emergency care when my husband cut his finger severely! to fancy restaurants, or local flavor! from the known to the unknown - How adventurous are you?)

We really do have spectacular views year round from the huge wrap-around decks. (yes, the lake is all mud right now, but you can still see mostly mountains and trees, and wilderness...)

East Tennessee has some fun, unusual hideaways - like the National Storytelling festival in nearby Jonesborough, and Bristol's road racing is only 2 hours away.

The house is ideally located between Sevierville, and Dandridge, TN. Take your pick of activities - outlet shopping and shows, natural activities in the Great Smoky Mountain National Forest, water skiing/wake-boarding, fishing on the lake.

It sits on a cove of Douglas Lake with a private pier. Water is seasonal (April to October) But the house sits up the mountain, so the water access is steep, but then it also offers great mountain views. The cove is nearly 1/2 mile long and offers excellent wake-boarding/water skiing. It is a quick 5 minute drive to main roads and all that the area has to offer, without being in the middle of tourist mania. 30 minutes and you can have it all - whitewater rafting, hiking, or Dollywood and shows.
