Why Mike & Heather Miller chose Jefferson City

Cherokee Lake was a lake i enjoyed boating, fishing, and camping on since my childhood. A lake front home is an awesome. It is much like a mountain chalet or a condo on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Simply put a home away from home for all that chose to enjoy this home, the blue barn. The Barn is very relaxing and is great place to escape, enjoy play on the water, fishing, nature walks, or a book while sitting on the lower porch. It is located near Carson Newman College and if you need any kind of entertainment or shopping Pigeon Forge is within one-hour drive

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into this cottage we were captured by the stunning view through the huge windows and deck sliders. The view looks down a 59 mile lake with islands and trees and very few homes visible. The steps and path down to the lake are well placed and easy to travel. Beautiful landscaping and a deck halfway down enables a lower view of the lake and a place to oversee children playing in the water. A floating dock allows for swimming and fishing and during our stay the depth was about 20 feet. The lake level does rise and fall as monitored by the dam.

The cabin was very clean and comfortable for the four adults and three small children. We only used the TV once (satellite dish) for the kids, but we mainly chose to live unplugged.

Even the neighbors were helpful and pleasant to talk with - though you can barely see their homes. The groundskeeper came by to mow and made sure it was convenient and not bothersome to us if he mowed at that time.

We grilled and ate many meals on the deck - no restaurant could give you such a stunning ambiance!...better than a five star restaurant. And with an upper and lower deck and the one mid way down the was easy to find reflective, reading, or quiet time space.

We did rent a pontoon boat from the marina - and had a great time exploring the lake and fishing. The public boat launch is close to the cottage should you decide to bring your own boat.

We also traveled to Panther Creek State Park for an outing - and hiking. However we found that we did not have a need to explore and desired to just stay at this cottage.

Mike and Heather thank you for making this available to us, we appreciated you taking time to email us the answers to all our questions, and for being a phone call away if needed.

The cottage was wonderful. The 4 of us had a terrific time and were in very close proximity to the rest of our family. Very quiet and so relaxing. Looking forward to future stays here. The view was the best. Thanks again.

Beautiful view!

We had a wonderful stay here at the barn. The view is absolutely breath taking. We had a nice relaxing family vacation. We all enjoyed it. The owners were very nice and were very helpful. We rented a boat at black oak marina and had a blast! Can't wait to go back next summer.

The pictures do not do this cabin justice. Great location, beautiful views of the lake, and plenty of room for everybody in the family. Be sure to eat at Lisa's Kitchen and go to the Briarwood Animal safari .

Nice Family Rental

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at The Barn with the family. Perfect getaway for us. Beautiful view of the lake. Nice yard, decks, dock and beach....we swam, fished, kayaked, and rented a pontoon boat at the marina. Beautiful park nearby for picnic and more swimming. Pretty lake with islands in front of your dock. Plenty of birdwatching, turtles, butterflies....great spot. Cozy house, clean and accommodating. Awesome views from family room and loft.
