Center Hill Lake has some of the cleanest and clearest waters in Middle Tennessee. The reservoir was completed in 1948 with the damming of the Caney Fork River and the Falling Water River.

A homey log cabin ought to be enough, but this Airbnb goes the extra mile. The stainless steel kitchen appliances present a stark contrast to the wood and stone theme of the property. However, you won’t mind it because the excellent facilities allow you to prepare delicious homemade meals during your stay. As a guest, you will likely appreciate the upgrades and the host’s dedication making the bedrooms and common areas as comfortable as can be. A basement game room awaits the kids, and the lake is a 10- to 15-minute walk, depending on your mood. There’s no need to hurry because a wonderful vacation home welcomes your return from the lakeside.
