About Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733

A soon to be retired local owner.

Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733 purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Elbridge Eastman 865/388-9733 chose Andersonville

A Fly fisherman's dream cabin on the river bank and a great retreat to relax and fish when Norris Dam is not Generating. A family friendly location that offers private river access, Norris Lake Marina with lake rental boats 5 miles away, and many historical sites to visit including the Appalachian Museum, Oak Ridge's American Museum of Science and Energy including the building of the atomic Bombs and many more Knoxville museums. Historical areas of East Tn and TVA and Oak Ridge are available within minutes.

What makes this cabin unique

Guest have said:

A guest in 2016 stated "My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this cabin! It is well situated on the Clinch river for prime trout fishing! The cabin is well appropriated and the owner was very responsive whenever we had a question. Fishing on the Clinch is very generator dependent, but the cabin is very close to Norris TN which boasts Norris Lake and Norris Dam State Park with additional fishing/boating/hiking options. In addition, the cabin is close to Knoxville and the Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area. We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return soon!

Others said,

"The view from the River Room and screened porch convinced us this was a great find.

And it is always 5-10 degrees cooler on this river than in the hills of Tennessee."

ON 5/18/13 a visitor reported :

'I hooked two 20 + inch browns today. Time to fish. Got one within 7 feet, the other within two feet. Big teeth all in the same dang hole - heck may of been the same fish!!!

Caught 10 other smaller trout while wading. "

On 5/19/13:

Another Fisherman caught the same 22 inch fish in our hole today and said he pulled a 27 inch brown out yesterday.

They were all released - to be caught again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. a great if to brief of a trip to your cabin. Despite the weather front that put down the fish, we did manage to lose a few nice big trout just upstream of your place, and landed some 1-foot longs. Will try it again some time, maybe earlier in the fall next year.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property last minute for a much needed disconnect. I knew I wanted something comfortable but away from the hustle and bustle. This cabin was perfect. I have rented through HomeAway/VRBO for years and am quite particular about one thing...cleanliness. This cabin was very clean and I don't say that often. The kitchen was well stocked (I cook full meals as I have dietary restrictions and it is easier than eating out) and easy to work in. There was plenty of space for groceries too. I only used the queen bed but it was clean and comfortable. My favorite space though was the sunken living room. It had stunning views and I spent a lot of time there and on the screened in porch. The only trouble I had was with the house alarm and gas grill and both were likely user problems. I didn't know to press the on/off button after entering the code for the alarm and the outside alarm started going off but I figured it out and the grill...I have charcoal at home and wasn't confident in my ability to light it so when it didn't light immediately I just switched my plan. Overall it was an absolute positive experience and I would recommend it to anyone. Watching the fishermen, canoes and kayaks, the wildlife and the river fill as water was released from the dam were all experience I enjoyed. I would love to visit this property again myself and hope to do so in the future!

Beauty and comfort

  • 4 of 5

The place is lovely and spacious. Beds are average in comfort. Must grow accustomed to the ever changing river levels (due to the very near damn) to maximize fishing opportunity and success. Plentiful fish!

  • 5 of 5

The Women Veterans and River Guides thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We had everything we needed for a fantastic weekend. The Clinch and Miller's Island is just around the corner. The owner responded quickly to all of our questions and was great to work with. I would definitely recommend staying here whether you are fishing or not!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. With the Clinch 20 feet out the back door it is a great place for wading fisherman. And the boaters are less than a mile to the Miller's Island boat ramp. Hope y'all come back. Regards, EGE.

Other fishing areas:

Wade Fishing is good at our cabin, but fly fishing for trout is great on the river, if TVA controls it's dam flows to accommodate your visit dates, so you have to check the dam Release Schedule Daily.

But if you want to fish for bass, crappie, and other fishing we have Norris lake three miles up stream and you can launch or rent a boat from there at Norris Dam Marina.

There is a a Clinch river put- in at Millers Island about one mile upstream from the cabin for floating the river and a take out 5-6 miles below at Peach Orchard ramp.

In our area we have four more fly fishing rivers all tailwaters, the Wautaga and South Holston near Bristol, TN, and the Hiawasee and Holston are good too. Fishing guides are everywhere.

Of course there are lots of other Lake fishing available too.

Check out TVA lakes in East TN on the web.

I suggest staying at the cabin and traveling to two or more other sites during the week.

Wade Fishing is out the back door at our cabin as fly fishing for trout is all over the river, if TVA controls it's dam flows to accommodate your visit dates.... you should check the dam Release Schedule Daily.

But if you want to fish for bass, crappie, and other fishing we have Norris Lake Marrina three miles up stream and you can launch or rent a boat from there.

There is a river boat ramp at Millers Island one mile upstream from the cabin for floating the river and a take out 5-6 miles below Miller's Island at Peach Orchard ramp.

In our area we have four more great fly fishing rivers all tailwaters..the Wautaga and South Holston near Bristol, TN, and the Hiawasee 2 hours south on I-75 and the Holston below Cherokee Dam are good too. Fishing guides are available for all these rivers.

Of course there are lots of other Lake fishing sites available too.

Check out lakes in east TN by looking at the TVA website for TVA TAILWATERS and see a list of lakes that are accessible in our area.
