Music Lovers: Every September Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion brings over 100 artists on 22 stages to historic downtown Bristol TN/VA for one of the region's best music festival! For more information call (423)573-4898

Things to do close by: Downtown Elizabethton has one of the oldest Covered bridges (built in 1882) in the state! Antique shops line the quaint Mayberry type town with various restaurants. Antique cars line the down town streets (closing just for them) on weekends during warm weather.

White Water Rafting: It's available on the nearby Watauga River or the Nolichucky River (about a 30 or 40 min. drive).

If motorcycles are your sport, you'll be just minutes away from US 421, aka ''The Snake''. Check out the '' Country Store'' in Shady Valley while your there, you'll love it. There are tons of back roads, gravel roads and mountains to explore as well.

You'll be about 30 minutes from Muddy Creek Raceway.

More things to do close by and Day Trips: Mountain Bikes: It's about a 45 minute scenic drive to Damascus, Virginia. That's the home of the world famous 'Virginia Creeper Trail'. If you've not heard of it, look it up online, the place is awesome, it is a senic bike path between Damascus and Abington Virginia. Or you could ride up the road to the national forest and use the many trails available there.

Biltmore House and Gardens, Grandfather Mountain, Sugar and Beech Mountain (skiing) and so much more are within daytrips

Or just relax, listen to the birds sing, the sound of the creek flowing and roast some marshmellows over the fire pit in the evening and tell ghost stories all night under the stars.

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 Tennessee

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.

Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this quaint, quiet home. I highly recommend it. The drive to the house is full of country charm, and the area is surrounded with cows and horses. The view from the kitchen window is one I will definitely miss! It's just so tranquil.

The wifi worked well, and the beds were comfy. Everything was very clean and tidy, and we thoroughly loved it!

Cozy, Comfortable, Simple

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to the area for a big race at Bristol Dragway. We were looking for a inexpensive comfortable place to stay and we found it in Smoky Brook Hollow. Nothing fancy, just a comfortable, clean home off the beaten path. We were there for 3 nights and I haven't slept that good in years. Love the place and we will be back next year. Dan has a wonderful place and has kept it simple. Love it.

Peaceful, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our dog Dottie, and I had a great time during our Smokey Brook Hollow stay! We loved the location, as we could easily access all of the Tri-State area. We had everything we needed for our stay at the cabin. Most importantly, we were very close to South Holston Lake! I would highly recommend renting a boat and getting out on the lake, that was our favorite part of our stay. We rented boats from Friendship Marina and Painter's Creek Marina, both were great experiences. We can't wait to come back to Tennessee! Thank you Dan and Bonnie for sharing your home with us!
