Greeters & Security Alarms

Gentle giants that will probably be inside in the AC if it’s hot out or sometimes just cause they want to be inside. They share two feline friends: Panther & Ms Kitty. They also keep raccoons and opossums out of the trash but generally don’t seem to notice or be noticed very often by the deer that we see almost everyday or the occasional wild turkeys.

Neighborhood overview

Very quiet here almost all of the time but there is a possibility for noise especially on some major holiday weekends. Usually if someone comes down the road it is the Post Man, UPS or Fed EX except for the 4th of July when our boat dock is often a prime location for a big fireworks display. Usually can’t tell a Saturday from a Tuesday most of the time as 80-90% of houses in the area are second vacation homes and unoccupied most of the year. Only 2 houses are located past ours before the cul-de-sac. We are separated by trees and woods on both sides. Private yet very Conveniently located.

Taxes, Fees, Insurance and Related Things.

State and County Occupancy Tax is 12.5% of your rate minus any third party fees and is due Before or at the time of check in. TripAdvisor already Collects and  Airbnb will start March 2018 when you book and remit it to the State, County and City.

TVA’s main purpose for the lake being the generating of electricity at Norris Dam and lake levels vary by season. Recreation must step back for a hopefully short winter season. Generator Optional Plus Gas & Oil Used. Plug in power only available closer to the house with advanced notice and expense of help to move it. Tiny Home is Mobile though so we can move it near the house with advanced notice or leave it right by the lake under shade trees where it is now. You are welcome to bring your own generator as well. You are also welcome to plug into any of our outlets on all sides of the wrap around covered decking or sun deck below for charging phones or laptops or any needs. We also provide a 5 way charger so the whole family can keep devices powered. If you frequent the outdoors off the grid type get a way’s and living but require electricity for work on a lap top or something you may want to consider battery power, solar or investing in a small inverter type generator easily transported in any type of auto back floor board or trunk.

Our Story

It started as a dream in 2011 when we found the property online and my then four year old and I came to view it, walked passed the house into the yard and on down to the boat dock and decided that it would be the perfect place to live. After years of remodeling and many projects we went live on airbnb (where you can still instantly book directly) in July of 2017 and met 5 star Super Host criteria for our first season by the end of September in under a quarter of the allotted time and a late season start. We later expanded to TripAdvisor, Holiday Lettings, FlipKey and HouseTrip as well. Much of our success can be attributed to the help of my sweet wife and my son’s “other mother” that came here from South Carolina to stay  in 2015.

We just recently celebrated our anniversary and  I am happily married to the love of my life living in paradise. Fairy tales do exist.  Absolute unconditional love. Family and friends are very important to us.

We continue to meet some of the most diverse, fun, kind and interesting people and could never have imagined how much fun hosting would be. So far every guest has literally made us think, feel and believe in terms like “mi casa es su casa” and a Lakota Sioux term learned years ago during a vision quest “Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ” (All Are Related) There really seems to be something to the whole Law of Attraction ideation.
