About Henriette James
I'm from Europe and love collecting European art as it reminds me of home. I share part of my collections in the vacation property. I love dogs and cats and they are certainly welcome to join you. I have two German Shepherds myself and always find it difficult to find a rental that accepts my dogs, most have a weight limit and don't accept large breed dogs. I welcome all furry friends.
Henriette James purchased this House in 2009
Why Henriette James chose Smithville
In 2008 my husband and I bought two, one acre lots in Smithville, TN close to Center Hill Lake. We lived in the Nashville area and had two young kids. We wanted a place to escape to for weekends. We designed a home and had a contractor built our dream get-away. We've made so many great memories here with our families that visit us from Europe. Now our kids are grown and we'd like to give others the opportunity to vacation in this home. We love the lake and have a boat at Hidden Harbor. Center Hill Lake is beautiful.

The property was fantastic! The property owner had everything that a person would need and then some! We have stayed at many different Vrbo properties and this one surpasses all expectations!
Beautiful house in a picturesque part of Middle Tennessee
Overall highly rated for cleanliness , setting and communication with the host . We were a little perplexed about being locked out of the NEST so unable to control the A/C or heat . Fortunately weather was good and everything worked out.
Hi Lisa, Thanks for your review and for being a great guest. I was surprised to see the comment on the NEST because it is not blocked for changing the temperature, it's only blocked for programming. Turning the dial left and right allows the temperature to be adjusted between 65-80. If you push the dial then it will ask for a code. I'm very sorry that that was not made clear to you. It's in the handbook, but I'll make sure to make a label to stick above the NEST controllers. This will help the future guests. We thank you for staying at La Provence House and hope to see you back soon again.
A perfect retreat
The home was exactly what we had expected and accurate to the pictures and description; it was homey, well equipped, clean and quiet with rustling of deer in the woods. Two deer in fact came up to the house. The back porch was our favorite. We shared lots of memories on the porch playing games, enjoying our meals and reminiscing. We visited the Jack Daniels distillery just 1.5 hours away in Lynchburg as well as Nashville (also 1.5 hours away). Needless to say our visit was short but we covered a lot of ground the two days we were there. Tennessee broke record highs in the 90s while we were there in early October, but it was a welcomed break from the cold and rainy weather they were having back in our home state of Minnesota. It was a great home away from home!
Wonderful lil hide away
A fantastic property with very accommodating owners. Great for motorcyclists, we will be back!
What a beautiful home with all the amenities. If you are looking for a great stay this is the place!
Easy and Peaceful
4 couples in for relaxation and proximity to lake and parks. We all had fun. Required zero interaction from the owners and would recommend to others.
