Bunkhouse at Cherokee Lake Sleeps 4 & Lake Front Fishing Dock!

Bedrooms 1
Space 450 sq ft
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Bunkhouse, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This bunkhouse is a converted garage. At the bottom of our lot is 50 foot frontage on the lake. There is a dock there to swim and boat off of.

Interior – Yes, we now have WIFI! You will love the interior of our Bunkhouse. It is well finished space with all you need in a little bit of room.

We also have 3 fishing rods and reels (and tackle box) in the closet. All you need are some worms to catch some great big catfish! There are 3 picnic tables around the property to enjoy a snack as well as a portable fireplace and a charcoal grill!

We have some classic family fun games to play in the closet as well (Clue, playing cards, and Rook). We built a small “laptop” desk in the main living area with a super view of the lake as you work. I use AT&T for my laptop internet and get 4G service at the cabin or just use our WIFI service at the bunkhouse.

We have two flat screen TVs that get Charter TV cable channels. We also have two air conditioners at the bunkhouse. One in the bedroom and one in the main room.

Inside the closet you will find two outdoor folding chairs to relax with and there is a 4 person picnic table for your use as well.

Parking is not an issue as you have 1.5 acres of land to use. Not a problem if you have several cars or even your boat and trailer.

The morning and evening views are just amazing, to put it mildly.

You are just a short distance (about 1 mile) from the German Creek Boat Marina and 10 minutes from Morristown. Here you will find College Square Mall, Walmart, and many other shops. You can rent a pontoon there and park it at our small dock. Contact the German Creek Boat dock.

In the winter our place makes a great executive furnished apartment. Ask about monthly rates for winter!

If you like to get away and enjoy the lake, but want to come back into an incredibly decorated and quality-built bunkhouse, this is the place for you.

About Shawn Wilmoth

I enjoy the challenge of real estate projects, running Salvage Unlimited and Gelato Brothers, and traveling across Europe.

We live near the bunkhouse and take great pride in keeping it in tip top shape for your rental experience.

If you like Cherokee Lake, you'll love the Bunkhouse at Cherokee and the privacy we have on our 1.5 acres!

Shawn Wilmoth purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Shawn Wilmoth chose Bean Station

We bought this great place as a real estate investment and wanted to remodel the cute little rock covered garage into a living area to enjoy the lake.

I designed this bunkhouse similar to efficiency apartments I have seen in Europe. Small but adequate spaces with simple design and style. I hope you enjoy.

What makes this bungalow unique

It is hard to find a finished space for rental in our area with lake frontage, camper parking and hookups, and top rated living space. Our bookings of repeat visitors seems to go up every year. You can make our place yours anytime you want to come down to Cherokee Lake.

We loved it the moment we seen it. Beautiful views of the lake. Great outdoor area to eat, play ball or whatever you want. The bunkhouse was very nice & very clean. We felt right at home the moment we arrived. Shawn was very helpful anytime we had questions or needed anything. We will definitely be back!! Can't wait to plan our next trip!!

Thanks for a great weekend!!

Overall it was ok

  • 4 of 5

Didnt stay there long but my only suggestion is to get maybe flex hose to re-route the a/c air to not blow at the ceiling. Seemed like the temperature in the bunkhouse would never get cold . But the bunkhouse is nice.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

all is good. clean. quiet . relaxing. I did not expect all the pots and pans ,linens towels, TP, body wash, and soap these people go above what one would call a bunkhouse ........ My son and I loved it .A week of fishing and

kayaking was good for the soul.. Ok one complaint the hill was a bit much for an old man with a bad back , would do it again.
