Amanda and family recently completed a successful home exchange and swapped her beautiful new lake home in La Follette, Tennessee for Kate's stunning Mediterranean, classic-inspired retreat in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Amanda's House in LaFollette, Tennessee

Amanda's beautifully located new lake home is surrounded by sparkling blue water, mountains, fishing, wildlife and national parks. The Lake has 800 miles of shoreline and covers 34,000 acres with amazingly clear blue-y green coloured water. The neighborhood features a fantastic golf course and an airstrip. From only an hour away one can find adventurous activities like whitewater rafting, hiking, biking and horseback riding, enjoying the countries' most beautiful parks.

What Amanda Loved about the Home Swap:

The home is like a resort in itself, not to mention the beautiful and peaceful neighborhood The owners are so kind. They went out of their way to make sure we had lots of information about the area. It was just the perfect balance of things to do and not dong anything!

How much they saved: It would be impossible to say, staying in such a stunning private home is not usually an option when renting for a week.
