About Dan Stophel
We are Dan & Bonnie. We have been together since 1988! We met in the Navy and both retired with over 20 years. We came back to the Bristol Area because of family and the weather. Bonnie is from Michigan, which is way too cold in the winter and I am from Bluff City. It is not a bad place to hang your hat.
Dan Stophel purchased this Farmhouse in 1991
Why Dan Stophel chose Bluff City
This was my Grandparents house were they raised my mother, as well as her sisters and brothers. We bought it from my uncle and rented it out for a while and decided to convert it to a VRBO home. We hope it works out well and we meet some really great people.

This little house reminded be of the Three Bears. Nothing was too big, nothing was too small. Nothing was too old, nothing was too new. Nothing was too expensive, nothing was too cheap. Nothing was outdated, nothing was made yesterday. Just perfect. Well-maintained but lived-in. Lived-in, but not worn-out. If your tastes are simple and you don't need to be pampered, but you need enough of the modern (Wifi) to make it work, this is the place. I've stayed in vacation rentals in both the US and Central America, and you can bet that if I ever get back this way (and I hope I do), I will be looking first to see if this one is available.
Great outdoor experience!
This property was just where we wanted it... Straight in the mountains! We were visiting from Florida so this was a great experience for our family. Lots of beautiful trails and secluded in a remote area. Dan the property owner was extremely accommodating for our family and had great communication the whole time. The house was equipped with everything we needed to feel like we were right at home. This beat staying at any hotel. Dan was very pleasant and awesome to do business with. Highly recommend. Thanks again Dan. Looking forward to staying again.
We used this cottage waiting for our House to close
We sold a property in Florida. We needed a place to stay with five pets two kids and two adults. We knew that we were not going to be allowed in any local hotels so we decided to a Airbnb. The cottage was the perfect size, it had just what we needed for our temporary housing. The owners were very accommodating with our situation i.e. children and pets. I am very grateful for that. Check in was very smooth communication was excellent
I will be back :)
I rent this place for few days, I really really love it. It is old nice place. The place is very old, you can smell it from the real wood, some area really need major remodeling but it is clean place. Very quiet. I am sure the one owned or managed this place is old couple that make sure we have everything, I feel staying at my grandparents property. You have everything you need :)
If I come back to this area, I will rent this place again.
The cross neighbor have many dogs and barking a lot, if you love animal it won’t bother you at all.
Thank you for your review. You are right that the house is old. It was my Grandparents house and has a lot of good memorize and I am glad it brought back good memorize for you and that you had a chance to make a memory of your own there. We try to keep the house clean and well stocked for our visitors. Hope others will come make memorizes of their own.
Great place to stay if you are going to a NASCAR race
This is our third year staying for both NASCAR races. It has everything you need to hang out and relax, cook a meal and stay between all the races.
