Description of the Pikeville vacation home rental
Come to the rural countryside where the pace of living is slow and easy. Just 18 miles from Fall Creek Falls State Park.
Gain access to your hide-a way through an electric controlled entrance gate.
Nature makes all the difference here as the surrounding lake and mountains provide a beautiful view in every direction.
Listen to the singing of the birds, the chatter of the squirrels, the croaking of the frogs, the splash of fish jumping and at night the hoot of the owls, and the yelp of the coyote.
Fishing, peddle boating, outdoor grilling, picnicking, swimming, hiking, watching TV, DVD or VCR, reading a good book or just sitting back and being as lazy as you want to be. All this and more is yours on site.
Bring yourself, your friends, your loved ones and food. Everything else is provided in this, your home away from home.
There are several down home type restaurants a short drive away if you do not feel like cooking.
The house is rustic, but very clean and features all the modern amenities.
Secluded from neighbors, surrounded on three sides by a lake.
Area Information
Bledsoe County and its historic County seat of Pikeville are one of Tennessee's best-kept secrets.

Visit historic Dayton, 15 miles to the east, with its Rhea County Court House, site of the famous Scopes Monkey trial in 1925. In Crossville, (known as the Golf capital of Tennessee) 30 miles north, enjoy live theater and musical concerts at the critically acclaimed Cumberland County Playhouse, shop in the Factory Stores of America outlet mall or on week-ends check out the largest flea market in central Tennessee. In Chattanooga, 55 miles to the south, See Rock City, Look-Out Mountain and the Tennessee Aquarium are just a few of the attractions. Knoxville, and the Great Smoky mountains are but a day trip away, as is the country musical capital Nashville.

We simply had the most wonderful trip. The view was beautiful, the house was inviting, and the squirrels and ducks were friendly! :) My young daughters had a fantastic time in the paddle boat; the train ride in Etoway was wonderful, and the trip to Dayton where the Scopes Monkey Trial was held was great, too. We were able to relax and just enjoy each others company. The owners thought of everything, and the views....... oh, wish I was back sitting on the porch overlooking the lake in the swing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Gratefully Spoiled

January 3, 2008

If we could, we'd go there every season of the year! Wow -- What a sweet retreat! We went between Christmas and New Year's, and in spite of the lack of foliage that time of year, it was beautiful -- Hope to go back in the fall and spring to enjoy the colors of those seasons in such a serene setting. Our children, age 12, 11, 9, and 7, had a great time fishing and paddle-boating....and yes, they caught fish (3 small brim)! Our time there provided a much-needed vacation time from intense work situations, as well as the December passing of my mother. Last minute search for places available Dec. 26th turned up "no occupany" until, by a miracle, we found your listing w/availability. After 4 nights there, we were rested, refreshed, and restored. A small but favorite part of mine was staying in the bedroom done in Native American decor and shopping at the Native American Village Store down the road from Fall Creek Falls. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Barnhill, for sharing this place with us!

Back to the Heavenly Haven

July 11, 2007

We spent Christmas 2006 there and returned for a enjoyable peaceful two week stay in June. We took the paddle boat out and caught fish for supper. I had a chance to get caught up on some reading sitting on the deck. Love the surrounding area with all the beautiful views. A wonderful place to stay, you won't be dissappointed...

Our stay on June 30th - July 3rd 2007 was peace on earth. A perfect get away for a stress free vacation. Bring all your food so you don't have to leave until it's time to go home. I will go back again.

A Great Place

May 14, 2007

We rented the house in April 2007 for a long weekend. The house is very nice and comfortable. We fished in the lake, took the peddle boat out for a spin, sat on the deck and watched the sunsets, and sat by the fire drinking wine. We hiked everyday at Fall Creek Falls Park (about 15 miles). It was so nice to come home to such an inviting/comfortable place after along day of hiking. Everyone in town (Pikeville) was very friendly. We hope to go back in the fall when the views should be amazing.

I would love to keep this place a secret, but that wouldn't be fair to all of you who haven't had a chance to see this adorable,enchanting, country place to stay. We spent Christmas there and had wonderful time, baking cookies, hanging our stockings from the fireplace and looking at our breathtaking view!!! We're looking forward to going back this summer, so we can swing on the deck; while looking at the lakes and mountains, and do some fishing from the dock. We've stayed many places, but this is one of our favorites !! I encourage anyone who wants a clean, cute and a delightful place to stay this is the place for you, it's all the owner promises and much more !!!

This place is wonderful and special. It's rustic but very clean, and features all the modern amenities. It's secluded from neighbors, surrounded on three sides by a lake, and has a great deck overlooking the lake. We caught fish, took long walks on nearby country roads, ate wild rasberries from the garden, cooked, discovered brand new baby birds in a little birdhouse, enjoyed lots of frogs, birds and a turtle or two. If you're looking for a peaceful retreat with lots of water, nature and beauty, you'll find it all here.
