About Melissa Lands

I grew up going to the smoky mountains and just fell in love with this home the minute I saw it. Our goal was to make it a completely relaxing get away. No expense was spared in the remodel.We are proud to say it is the #1 rental on Douglas lake! We are positive that your family will love it too! We love to go into gatlinburg to shop and catch a show only a short drive of maybe 25-30 minutes. We also enjoy hiking in the mountains. In the summer we love lounging by the pool or going out on the boat but the winters by the fireplace reading a book or watching a movie are equally relaxing. This home is so peaceful we never want to leave!

If you have any further questions feel free to call me


Melissa Lands purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Melissa Lands chose Douglas Lake

Professionally renovated in 2015 with contemporary and beach themed accents..It's so relaxing to lay on the patio overlooking the lake and see the mountains at the same time, it's the place we go to recharge. Our 4 dogs especially love this home. When ever we say,' you want to go to the Lakehouse ' they go crazy!

The house is set up with an upper level and lower level..provides more privacy for multiply families or friends.

Also, please check out our fort myers, Florida pool home, tastefully decorated in beach theme VRBO # 401157. We are 15 mins from sanibel , captiva, and ft myers beaches with your own private pool.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Laying by the pool and boating/fishing in the summer and the winter and fall are amazing. This house is very private with a large farm with cows to the left. I love being out here without city noise,no cars,trains or planes. At night the stars are amazing!! We love sitting in the hot tub under the stars. You never see that in the city. The fall is beautiful when you go through the mountains. We love to curl up to a good movie by the fireplace. Our dogs also enjoy the acre of land to explore and they love to go down to the water and play. For all those out there that love to fish, Douglas lake is known for its large array of fish,hosting the most fishing tournaments every year! They have several bass tournaments. Whether you fish from our dock or in a boat you definitely will catch something. Easy 25-30 minute drive to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge but no traffic to deal with making this property the best of both worlds!!

This property really is a great getaway! Very comfortable set-up. While the interior of the home is very nice and comfortable, it is the outside area that truly shines. There is literally something to please everyone- young and older. The hot tub and pool area with the outside kitchen area are simply great. It was colder weather during our stay, but we could envision what a great place this would be in the warmer months. Actually it was excellent hot tub weather. Views of the lake can be enjoyed from about every room. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch with comfy furniture and great views. There is also a fire pit and lounge area at the bottom of the easily traversed steps leading to the dock. It was nice having the fireplace and tv's in every almost every room. The steam shower in the master bath was a real treat. The kitchen had everything and more to prepare a meal, as well as, plenty of dinnerware and glasses for outdoor use. Very comfortable king bed in the master ( we didn't use the other bedrooms). Linens were of good quality. We rent many homes during the course of the year and this is a favorite. Oh, I shouldn't forget about the pool table, foosball, games, and movies, wifi, ect. Certainly recommend.

You Won't Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

You won't find amenities and designs like this in many rental properties. Look out the back of any bedroom in the home and you will have a georgeous view of the lake. Sits up high enough that you can see a lot of the lake while being in a secluded area of Dandridge. You can enjoy your coffee or book on the screened in porch or relax in the hot tub. Pool wasn't open but owner has everything you need to enjoy it. Grill by the pool and eating area will make your visit the most enjoyable you could want. Owners have vast selection of games and movies that are there for your enjoyment. If you are looking for a cozy fire, plenty of firewood to help enjoy one. The details in the home - granite, steam shower, free wifi, pool table, foosball table, and much more make this an enjoyable home for all ages. You won't want to leave!

This place is the absolute best! You will NOT be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the "honeymoon" we never did have after being married 34 years! The owner and site manager (Melissa) are blessings to offer this luxurious and beautiful home that was clean and comfortable. It had everything you could ever imagine. The sunrises and sunsets were so lovely. The amenities were all in superb condition. We rented homes since the 1995 in Western NC and TN and to be completely honest, this one was the best. I would like to bring our entire family down in 2017.Don't miss the opportunity to try this home. After all, you only live once. :)

Sunset Cove

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cove. The Property Manager, Melissa Lands, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about this property and she went above and beyond to assure us of a great stay! She and her husband met us when we arrived and explained all of the particulars about the property and boat which made us feel at ease immediately.

The house itself was clean and ready when we arrived. The house is an unusual setup with the lower floor only being entered from the downstairs. This actually worked very well as we had 3 different families staying at one time and it allowed everyone the privacy needed. The home is well equipped with anything needed to feel right at home. Additionally, the pool was a nice bonus especially with the grilling area being a part of the pool enclosure.

We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cover accommodated our extended family of 10 with ease and we never felt crowded or "on top of each other". The home has been meticulously renovated and is very beautiful yet comfortable. Although located very close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, we actually never left the house except to attend Church! We had such a wonderful time just playing in the pool or cruising on the pontoon boat that even the teenagers were not bored or asking to "go somewhere fun". That is a very rare thing indeed. Perfect family retreat to reconnect and relax! Even when there were minor repairs to attend to, Melissa got them taken care of quick and they did not impact our enjoyment one bit. The owners obviously want their guests to return and we most certainly will.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent almost a week in this cozy, relaxed and very quiet home. First the bedding was exceptional. Down pillows and good solid mattresses. The 2 person lounge chair by the fire demanded cuddled naps. The kitchen was beautifully equipped with all sorts of gadgets along with granite counter tops, a sizeable frig and breakfast bar. A convenient laundry with new LG appliances were easy to use. Bathrooms were large and clean. Looks like a new stairway to the lake along with a huge deck next to the firepit will be a welcome addition for the less mobile.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your time here..the summers are most popular but the winters are pretty phenomenal too..we did add the stairway to the deck and lake for the less mobile in mind. The stairs are super easy to walk as we made them extra wide and gently sloping. We also added a large sectional couch with chaise since your visit..additional upgrades for 2015 include outdoor grilling pavilion,a 4th bedroom and bath,an additional lower level living room and kitchenette,a new master bath with a walk in shower/steam room with mood lighting and benches,whirlpool tub and 3 shower heads. We hope you come back and see all the changes we have made!!
