About Joe and Wendy Fate
We are an adventurous family! We love taking in the breathtaking sights East Tennessee, NC and VA have to offer. As our kids have headed off to college, our eight-bedroom home has become more spacious, quiet and empty. We decided to transform our 3 bedroom, 1 bath downstairs apartment into a fully furnished retreat for those seeking anything from a peaceful weekend on the lake to an adventurous week spelunking, kayaking, and hiking on the Appalachian Trail, for NASCAR race fans, music lovers, history enthusiasts, and more. Our background is in home remodeling and creating beautiful spaces for clients to live and thrive. We have enjoyed doing all of the recent renovations to make this a beautiful space we think you will love!
Joe and Wendy Fate purchased this House in 2000
Why Joe and Wendy Fate chose Bluff City
We are central to so many amazing things. Coming from South Florida, we are also in love with the weather and lack of bugs here, where the average year round temperature is 55 degrees! Even on the hottest day in summer, 85 degrees, it is still cool in the morning and evening. The fresh water fishing is amazing. There are endless trails and incredible camping opportunities, white water rafting and exploring, musical, cultural, historical and art opportunities all around. Let us know your interests and we will point you in the right direction. We are so excited to be able to host people from all over, getting to know guests as they come back year after year. We work hard to make it a great experience for each guest with little extras to make it feel like home.
What makes this House unique
Sitting out back, with a fire going in the fire pit, hanging with friends and family.... time just seems to stop and all the cares of the day melt away. For a moment, all is right in the world. We love our little city. It's just so quaint and centrally located between Johnson City Bristol, Kingsport and Elizabethton and is only an hour and a half from Knoxville. We love living near the water and feeling the cool air when we walk by, along the boardwalk or over the swinging bridge. But, I have to say, one of my most favorite things is the sound of the train horn echoing in the mountains as it passes through. It's a slower pace here. That took me a while to get used to, but you will love the beautiful flowers in the spring and summer and watching the leaves turn in the fall. When we do get snow, it is beautiful. It usually only lasts a day or two, so we take advantage and sled day and night. There is plenty to do, but on days you want to take a break, you can relax in the shade or the sun and breathe in the fresh air and peaceful serenity this place has to offer. Friends and family come to visit from South Florida and want to buy a vacation home here for themselves. It's a small piece of untouched natural beauty with so much to enjoy.

Above and beyond any expectation!
We have travelled to Bristol several times for the August night race and this rental is by far the best option available. It’s close to the track (not walking distance) but there are lots of options for parking near the track and I think Uber is also available in that area. Our hosts Wendy and Joe went above and beyond to welcome us and make sure our stay was all that we had hoped for. The place is spotless and has everything you could possibly need (we didn’t even have to bring a hair dryer!). Can’t wait until our next trip to Bluff City! #ItsBristolBaby
Thank you so much for your feedback and taking the time to post it.
You are the reason we work so hard to make the place great and are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
Heather, you and your friends were a delight to host. We would love to have you back anytime! You left the place in pristine condition, just as you found it.
We love meeting guests from near and far and thank you for trusting us with your vacation stay!

A Wonderful Weekend!
My friends and I did a quick girls' getaway and were lucky enough to wind up in Joe and Wendy's rental. They met us and showed us around upon our arrival. Everything was spotless, the decor is really cute, and the place is very well stocked. We were even welcomed with drinks and snacks! The rental is located in a very quiet neighborhood, and we spent a good part of the afternoon relaxing around the fire pit in the back yard. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Host was very nice. House was amazing.
We had a wonderful stay. Our hosts were there to greet us and couldn't have been nicer. Check in was fast and the house was quite cozy. Very clean and all of our needs were met
It was our pleasure! We enjoyed having you. Congratulations on your race at Bristol! Your team is welcome back anytime! You left the place in impeccable shape. The perfect guests!
Everything was great! It was a perfect place for us. The house was so nice and well kept. We definitely had space to relax and enjoy the stay. Definitely recommended and we will definitely stay again should we need to. Thanks!!
We are so glad that you enjoyed it! That is always our goal. Thank you for the feedback.
It is always nice to have such wonderful guests.
Please come back any time!
We look forward to seeing you again.

Highly recommend staying at this lovely house! 6 adults stayed comfortably, with plenty of space. Joe and Wendy were terrific! Best hospitality of any house we've ever rented. Thank you!
was a wonderful expierence. the house was beautiful. had everything you needed for your stay, only thing not provided was a blowdryer lol. but, luckily us girls carry one. everything was beautiful. the hosts were amazing and very helpful with anything we needed. will deffiantly will let lots of people know about this place.
Thank you, Crystal! You guys were great. I am sorry that you didn't see the hair dryer!! (I showed it to you when you came in, but you were also very tired from driving 10 hours.) It was under the deep sink. I will now switch it to the bathroom vanity. My thinking was that someone could get ready at the deep sink/vanity to leave the bathroom available for the others. (I could have listed that information in a welcome book, since most people are tired from traveling and won't remember most of what I show them. :) Thank you for letting me know!! It was even a BioIonic hair dryer, which I thought you would appreciate. My bad!
Thank you for your feedback. We would love to have you here anytime!
