Looking for a change of pace & some more real world experience she got in touch with her brother to come work a season at the lodge in 2016.

“In 2007 we purchased the property where we could enjoy time relaxing and hone our skills on some of the best fly-fishing waters in the country. I enjoyed this natural resource so much and knew others would as well, and that’s how the South Holston River Lodge was born. I hope you enjoy our little piece of heaven.”
