Old Home Place Detailed Description:
Old Home Place is a very special 200+ year old authentic log cabin in a wooded setting on Douglas Lake. Several years ago, this home was dismantled and then rebuilt at the lake using its original logs; those used to build it in historic Cades Cove back in the 1800s. The logs still retain the carvings of long ago and have become a conversation piece for our guests. Recent remodeling has improved its character: including a new metal roof, all new thermal pane windows, complete new kitchen, and wood laminate floors throughout the home.
Old Home Place is nestled on two wooded lots with lots of hardwood trees with very easy access for young and old alike to the lake. Imagine the Wintery months here with the historic log home, a romantic fireplace to snuggle next to and a steamy hot tub to relax in. Just the perfect setting for a romantic weekend away with that special someone. In the large front yard you have a swing hanging from a tree, a firepit with cedar benches, a horse shoe pit and corn hole boards to play which gives you lots to do when your not in the lake. here is a Pack’N’Play there if you have a little one – it will help with not having to bring one. A perfect Smoky Mountain setting! The upstairs bedroom has a full bed, and a day with with a trundle. You can pull the trundle out if you like and have 4 separate beds
The large covered back porch has a hot tub, dining table and chairs and a very comfortable porch swing to enjoy all while overlooking the lake. the covered front porch has rocking chairs to sit and relax and enjoy the woods and occasionally a deer may walk through. There is geese that loves to play in the water behind this home and squirrels running around in the yard. Enjoy nature to the fullest.
There is a garage by the house that has a pool table so the kids, young or old , can play and have lots of fun yet not bother the others in the home who would enjoy some calmer time. There is a firepit in the large front yard. You can always pick up lots of wood laying around in the woods for this.
The driveway is a large circular one so you can just drive right in and out with your boat without having to back up. One of the concrete launches is within walking distance and the other one is about a mile away if your here in the winter time.

About The Water Levels:
Due to the nature of Douglas Lake being a reservoir lake the water levels fluctuate regularly. All our docks are easily movable back and forth (in season). During your stay it may be necessary for you to push or pull the dock to keep them floating. There is no possibility we can be at all the cabins to keep this done when it can move as quickly as it does. Again, these are easily movable and normally one person can do it themselves.
For Your Personal Pleasure:
