About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home. Close To Marina And Recreation Area! Gorgeous Lake View

Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Looking for a place to boat, ski, and swim? The Haven is the perfect place for one or multiple families to come and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors! The home is nestled on 3 wooded acres on the end of a cul de sac so it is very private. You can sit out on the covered deck or patio and enjoy the beautiful year round lake view or relax by the fire at the fire pit that overlooks the lake. There is plenty of nature for the children to explore and safe areas for the children to run and play outside.

The home has 4 bedrooms: 2 Master Suites, one with a king bed, walk-in shower and one with a queen bed and shower/tub combo. Another queen size room and a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds and two extra pillow top twin mattresses that can be pulled out trundle style. If you have additional guests there is a loft area with a queen size pull out sofa bed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare your meals. Pots/pans, coffee maker, blender, griddle, and mixer are all provided. There is a charcoal grill outside for your family cookouts. You will enjoy all a fully stocked kitchen and nice linens for your comfort and convenience.

Sit back and relax in the living room while looking through a wall of windows overlooking the lake. For those cold evenings enjoy a fire in the stone gas fireplace. The children can relax in their own space downstairs while the adults are upstairs. Complete with a foosball table, 55" flat screen TV and game table the downstairs is set up to entertain! There is also a ping pong table for those late night tournaments and a basketball goal for the energetic souls! The house has has 6 flat screen TVs, Wifi, a Wii and Netflix for your enjoyment, no satellite/cable.

The house has a wrap around porch to experience the most nature has to offer and both Master Suites walk out to the deck. The other two rooms walk out to a covered patio with a lake view and comfortable swing or rocking chairs to relax in. There is plenty of parking in the driveway and easy boat turn around in the cul de sac. Unlike many properties on Center Hill lake the drive is NOT treacherous. There is a recreation area and boat ramp 1 1/2 miles from the house and Sligo marina is close by with pontoon boat rentals or boat slips available by the night for $10. Riverwatch golf course is close by for those who enjoy spending the day on the greens. There are grocery stores, restaurants and activities 15 minutes away in Smithville. The property's address is Sparta, but it is actually right outside of Smithville. The Haven is the perfect place for sport, leisure, and getting away from it all!

About Stacey DeWit

I grew up camping and boating on Center Hill Lake and it was always a dream of mine to own a home on Center Hill. It is such a beautiful lake and holds many cherished childhood memories for me of the days I spent here with family and friends. Now that I am grown and have a family of my own with a husband and three children I decided having a place of our own to create new memories would be such a special gift. We live in Mt. Juliet, TN so the lake property is around an hour away. We just purchased the home in January 2015 and have been working very hard to make it our home away from home. We decided to rent the home on VRBO to help cover expenses and to allow other families the opportunity to make their own memories!

We love this property because it is on three beautiful wooded acres with a beautiful year round lake view. It has tons of privacy, yet it is close to the lake and marina. We hope to spend many weekends having great experiences at our lake home and we hope you do too!

Stacey DeWit purchased this house in 2015

Why Stacey DeWit chose Sparta

We fell in love with this property for the quiet seclusion on 3 acres and the beautiful year round Lakeview. We loved the wooded lot and yard space that allows our three children to have an area to play. We also found the unique floor plan of the home allows for togetherness as well as privacy. We hope our guests love our home as much as we do!

Tree Top Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, all nine women, life-long friends, were WOWED by this property - even in the dreary January winter. It was a perfect setting with wonderful views to enter our sixties together . There was plenty of room in the kitchen for us all to cook together and throughout the property (indoors and out) to huddle and catch up on our lives. We certainly took advantage of the fire-pit one afternoon, comfy seating for all. It is a clean, well-maintained property! The owners were delightful and responsive with all our questions and needs.

Amazing view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as shown in the pictures. The house was clean and comfortable. The view from the deck is beautiful! When we arrived, we discovered that the refrigerator was not working. One call to the owners and a new refrigerator was delivered the next morning. The DeWits offered to purchase a new refrigerator, pick it up and deliver it themselves since they could not get one delivered until the next day! They went the extra mile and took care of a problem that was totally unexpected. We would definitely recommend the "Haven" to anyone planning to visit the area. We hope to return someday!

Wonderful stay in the beautiful and tastefully decorating cabin! Peaceful and beautiful view. Loved sitting on the back porch having coffee and watching the boaters on the water.

Truly a Wonderful Experience at The Haven

  • 5 of 5

First off the owners are first class...The cabin was clean, stocked, up to date with WiFi, and a well functional layout with good decor, we had such a wonderful experience at this awesome cabin. Four Adults and five kids ranging from 5-10 and everyone had their own spaces. Plenty of activities to do indoors and outdoors. We enjoyed exploring the property and the surrounding areas, we visited Burgess Waterfalls in Sparta, Cumberland Cavern in nearby McMinnville, and ate at Blue Water Grill on the lake at Hurricane Marina at Centerhill and Kilgore’s in Smithville. The one day it rained we all jumped in on some foosball and ping pong action, then relaxed with the fireplace and Netflix’s. Oh and Not to mention the relaxing evenings in the hot tub and fire pit. We literally took advantage of all the opportunities this place offered. Thank you for sharing your Haven with us. Looking forward to it again.
