About Judy Valentine
Jim and Judy operated a sign shop, Val-U-Signs, in Oak Ridge, TN from the mid 80's until 2006. When we retired, our son purchased, and now operates, the business. I guess we couldn't stay retired because here we are starting another business. In 2005 we purchased a Crestline modular home and erected it on our property in Norris (8.6 acres). We lived in the home until early 2012. It's a lovely home, but more space than we need. We subdivided the property, moved another house next door and now live there. Over the years we have done quite a bit of entertaining in the Rabbit Run house. Plus there was one wedding and one memorial service. It really is a perfect place to have a gathering. We chose the name because we have had a rabbit rescue here for several years. Animal lovers and children will enjoy the variety of animals. Our rabbit rescue pen has become a home for chickens. Our granddaughter, Charlie, is an animal lover; and chickens are her current favorite. We still have a house rabbit in our home as well as 2 parakeets, The rabbit is a white Netherland Dwarf named Marshmallow. Just let me know if your children would like to visit Marshmallow and/or the birds, There are also four cats--they are all gentle, and they may come to visit the Rabbit Run house yard. We now have two goats--Pansy and Daisy, and there are, 3 rabbits in cage below the office. The goats are in the barn, and you are welcome to visit them--they are very tame. Adults please accompany children, and be sure to keep the barn gate closed.
Judy Valentine purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Judy Valentine chose Clinton
It's a lovely and peaceful place. When we purchased the property in 1997, we wanted to be in the country without being too far from civilization. It's just a few minutes to drive to walking trails, streams, Norris Dam and Norris State Park.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique

Perfect for our group!
The house and location were awesome! Good parking space, nice yard, we felt safe, plenty of beds and rooms were available! Our family enjoyed being all together. For the 8 adults and 5 children we had there were plenty of bathrooms. The mattresses could use an upgrade soon and the house although it was lovely and we enjoyed it a good cleaning is needed.
The owner is amazing! She responds very fast and solved any problems or met any requests very promptly and effectively! I would definitely recommend this property for a family gathering or group retreat!
This was a great place for our families to gather as it was centrally located. The young kids in our group enjoyed the swing and the chickens in the yard. Inside there was plenty of room for all to spread out. Overall, a good experience.
Enjoyed this retreat-style property!
We had an amazing time! The house is very spacious, clean with a fully stocked kitchen. We had a pretty large group, everyone had their own space, a lot of room for the kids to play. Very easy to get in touch with owner and she responds quickly. A nice yard and outdoor seating areas. We had a great time!
My husbands family is from all over so this was a great middle spot for us to meet, checking in was easy, host was easy to get ahold of if needed, house was clean, lots of beds and so much room! Kids loved the chickens and cats that roamed around. If we come back to this area we would definitely stay here again!! Judy was a great host!
Great for large family reunion
We enjoyed our stay. The house was in a great location for our family traveling from all over. The Knoxville airport is about 40 min away. There were enough beds for our large family of 28 (including children)!
The owner Judy was very easy to work with and accommodating while we were staying at the house. Would definitely go back again
