I have the best job - talking to and meeting wonderful people from all over the US and world who want to visit Watts Bar Lake, TN for a lake vacation or getaway. I have been very pleased to be able to make people happy for 14 years by offering quality privately owned lake houses with private docks. I would have never thought after graduating from college with a teaching degree that I would end up here in TN on a beautiful lake to look at and enjoy. Whenever I go on vacation, I can't wait to come back home to the lake!
