About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Nestled on a quiet, secluded forty-acre, family-owned farm surrounded by rolling fields and beautiful river and mountain views, this private riverfront cottage is located just steps away from the South Holston River, and is perfect for any relaxing vacation or fishing adventure. Whether you are in for a race weekend, a fishing trip with friends or a quiet family vacation, this cozy cottage is perfectly suited for your needs.

Race weekend rates are upon request. Listed rates do not apply.

The Holston River House is a two-story home with a master suite on the ground floor and two sizeable bedrooms upstairs. With three spacious bedrooms in all, three full bathrooms, an open floor plan, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen, a bright and airy sunroom, dual side decks, skylights, and numerous other comfortable amenities, the property will feel just like home. Privacy and memorable views are what sets this home apart from the others.

Wake up with a cup of coffee on our lovely sun porch overlooking the South Holston River. If you are wanting to fish, slide your waders on and enter the river anywhere on our private half-mile shore on a section of the river known for producing large trout. Grab a quick bite to eat for lunch at the house or from one of the many local restaurants, and be back in the river in minutes. After a wonderful day, relax around a fire down by the water with friends and family, reminiscing on the day’s events.

If the river is not your thing, beautiful South Holston Lake, with its miles of undeveloped shoreline, is just a few short miles up stream. Boats and equipment are available for rent at the many marinas. Boone Lake is also just a mile or so downstream, offering a public boat ramp and recreational areas. Minutes away from Bristol Motor Speedway and numerous golf courses, this rental property has something to offer to everyone. If you prefer to just come to relax, enjoy watching the wildlife and river view.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holston River House. The home is lovely, well decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with lots of dishes, cookware, etc. All you need to bring is food and beverages of choice. The premises are well groomed and maintained. We could not have been more comfortable in these relaxing conditions. Lots of bird activity on the water and at the bird feeder...a pair of bald eagles were icing on the cake. Be sure to bring binoculars and a bird ID book. Lots to see from the sun-room (our favorite spot). Lots of photo ops, too. We were disappointed in the fishing...due to weather conditions and conditions on the river, but loved just being there. Our host, Jim, could not have been more gracious. Looking forward to another visit.

a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Holston River House was everything we could have wished for and more. So much so, we stayed on another two days (must admit, I was glad no one else was coming so we could do so - thanks Jim!). We can't say enough good about our vacation in Bluff City, but we can guarantee - we'll be back!

ok - I am in love with the stretch of water just downstream from this house. My friends and I planned a long weekend getaway so that we could search some other water on this beautiful tailwater, as we had previously concentrated our fishing efforts about 9 miles upstream. Over the 3 days of fishing, I personally landed well over 100 fish, with 3 of them over 20 inches and one of them 23 - 24 inches (Brown caught at dusk on a size 24 midge). Needless to say, we will be staying at this location a number of times in the future.

The house - great! The hospitality - even better! You can not go wrong by staying at this wonderful vacation home!

Fourth visit coming up!

  • 5 of 5

We just love this place - and are so excited to be going back again for our fourth stay next week. We were there just two weeks ago for my birthday .. and missed it so much we are going back for another week.

It is so peaceful, and yet easy to get to places, shops etc. The house is kept spotlessly clean and is equipped with all amenities. The view of the river from the sunroom is just wonderful. And did I mention the Bald Eagle???? Plus the bluebirds, cranes, herons, ducks, woodpeckers ....

We just can't say enough to recommend a stay here.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Well this may be the best place for fly fishing, but the girls will love it too. We had such a good time staying here. We came to watch my son play ball for college and when we were at the cabin, we felt right at home. As a matter of fact we all said we could live there easily. Look out Jim we may be trying to buy you out for a retirement pad. Ha! Ha!

We all said we'd love to come back and probably will really soon. It was not a fisherman's cabin by far, so don't let that scare you off. We were even saying we'd have to learn how to Fly Fish. I guess Jim knew we didn't know how to when I told him I wouldn't be able to get the girls to put a worm on the hook. I now have been informed that you don't put a worm on the hook to fly fish. :> Silly me. Thank you Jim for not laughing at me when I said that.

Hope to see you soon! Thanks for a beautiful few days at you lovely place.
