Boat excursions are available upon request and host availability. However, boat is winterized during winter months and not available. Fishing gear is also available to rent if you have a fishing license. This is sometimes a shared space with the owners as it is their only access to the boat dock/boat.

Location

Kingston, Tennessee, United States

This is a small, super quiet street with less than 10 houses total. We are located in a very rural area with a small town 10 minutes away and a major town 30 minutes away. Be prepared for quiet, country life with the sound of birds, boats & dogs.

We are a retired military couple that loves family, friends, the lake and travel! After finding our forever home on beautiful Watts Bar Lake, we found we missed the community feeling of living on or close to military bases for 25 years. So, we decided to share our country oasis with you to continue to find new friends. We spend most of our time at home on the lake with our two miniature dachshunds, Laci & Bo. However, we also like to travel and usually plan a trip once a month or so somewhere new or to visit family and friends. Come visit and let us show you why East Tennessee is a great place to be!
