South Holston River Vacation Rentals
About Pappaw’s Rentals
Year Purchased: 2009
In May of 2010, my wife and I made the decision to completely remodel the property. Known as Pappaw’s Fishing Pad, it sits alongside the river.
We love the water and it has always been our desire to have a place on the water that we could offer for overnight rentals as well as a place where our three grandchildren could enjoy – who love the outdoors, water and all the things that go with those.
Previously, the property had been used for monthly rentals but we thought this would be the best use, because when the unit is not booked for a daily or weekly rental, we can use it ourselves and enjoy our grandchildren here as well.
Meeting our guests and making sure they are comfortable is our goal. We enjoy, so much, meeting the people, hearing the stories of their lives, where they are from and about their own children and grandchildren and of all of the good things that life holds.
We live only 10 miles away, but the river is such a beautiful place to spend free time. No pressure and to just sit and watch the water flow by, enjoying life to its fullest with our grandchildren and friends.
Rates are discussed over the phone and are dependent on the calendar and your accommodations.

Pappaw’s Fishing Pad is just the right place to be with the neighbors on the river, all of them friendly and willing to speak and wave their hands as they go by.
We also have several great country eating places close by that you can enjoy.
Pappaw’s Fishing Pad is on the South Holston River and is only about 75 feet from the water’s edge and has over 300 feet of river frontage. You can wade it all!
The river is approximately 150 feet wide, so you will have plenty of fishing here. It is known as one of the best fishing spots on the Holston.
We have a fire pit for added convenience and a picnic table that’s only 3 feet from the water’s edge.
The lower property is very deep water filled with Rainbow and Large Brown Trout. The fish venture up stream to the water’s edge of the property and that really makes for some great fishing right off the bank as well.
We’re a family friendly vacation rental property and you’ll enjoy your visit to Pappaw’s Fishing Pad. Come visit us today. We’d love to show you around.
WHY THE OWNERS CHOSE BLUFF CITY
After seeing the large Rainbow and Brown Trout on the Holston River, we decided to find the best fishing spot that would also serve as a rental or just be a relaxing place to unwind.
We chose the Pappaw’s Fishing Pad location because of the easy access to the river. There’s lots of space to wade and catch Big Brown and Rainbow Trout.
The river frontage is the best location on the river. Easy access with plenty of good wading for fly or bait fishing. It is just a beautiful place to be for fishing, family fun or just relaxing with all the amenities.
Bluff City is only 6 miles to town.
Elizabethton is 10 miles.
Bristol is 5.
Johnson City is only 15 miles away.
The property is located just 5 miles from Bristol Motor Speedway but just far enough away to get away from the crowds.
The Appalachian Trail is located a few miles up the road and Webb’s Store is just minutes away and serves good country meals.
A SMALL PIECE OF PARADISE
Fly or bait fish one of the nation’s best trout rivers. The property is located on the banks of the South Holston River, one of the best fishing locations of the entire river. There is a fire pit along the river’s edge to relax at night and tell the stories of the big ones that got away, and the ones that didn’t, or just some extra fishing after dark.

THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF THIS PROPERTY
We completely remodeled the entire house and property in the spring of 2010 and are very pleased with the outcome. Many improvements have been made since then, as well.
Along with 300 feet of river frontage, the house is only 75 feet from the front door of Pad #2 until you put your feet in the water.
A fire pit and picnic table are located just three feet from the water’s edge. Pad#1 has a large deck and a carport with overhead fans is located in front of Pad#2. With table and chairs to watch the world go by, as well as large shade trees along the river you’re sure to enjoy just sitting back and relaxing to watch the water’s activities.
