Clean, Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Way better than described. All the amenities, and more. Reasonably close to town, yet clean fresh air and brilliant dark night skies (every star in the heavens is just waiting to be reached out and touched). We'll certainly stay here again!

THIS PLACE ROCKS!!!!!!! And so does the owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at Benham Lodge and it was WONDERFUL! Allen is the PERFECT host!

I felt like we were staying in a hotel! There were snacks in the kitchen, cocktails in the frig and clean towels in the bath when we arrived.

This house has it all! On top of all that, the house is nestled in a quite beautiful spot. Before heading out to the track, we hiked the property.

Gorgeous views!

The ultimate win was when we were delayed at the track and Allen offered to check on our dog. No one does that!!

I called Allen from the track. We were in town for the VT UT game and had brought our dog. We were delayed and Allen went by the house to let the dog out.

I can’t say enough good things about this property and Allen. If you are heading to Bristol VA/TN THIS IS WHERE YOU SHOULD STAY!

If only there were more owners like Allen!

Thanks A TON! We had a blast and felt like we were at home!

Can’t wait to come back!!!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home on a quiet rural road by an awesome cold water mountain creek. We stayed here overnight while traveling further south. Allen, the owner, was very accommodating and went out of his way to make this feel like home. The house was immaculate and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with lots of staples and all the fixings needed for good coffee. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Peacefull and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Benhams for five nights and enjoyed the quiet location. We had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was packed with everything we needed and we used the washer/dryer a couple of times. We loved the rockers on the porch for morning coffee. Thanks for providing such a nice place to stay and for your quick response with our questions.

The house was very nice, better than the pictures. It was very clean, comfortable, and stocked great. The owner is very nice and good response time with questions. But the internet is sketchy. Overall great stay.
