Riverview Ranch is a recreational family retreat located on the very productive fishing waters of the South Fork of the Holston River, also commonly known as the South Holston or the SOHO, in East Tennessee nestled within a pastoral community of working farms.  With 2,600± feet of river frontage, boat access, walk-wade access and breathtaking views of Holston Mountain within the Cherokee National Forest, this property offers a spectacular setting for entertaining, relaxing, fly-fishing and hunting.  Known as one of the best trout fisheries on the East Coast, the South Holston tailwater is home to naturally reproducing brown trout that grow to 20 pounds and a plethora of consistent aquatic insect hatches. The property offers an attractive riverfront house with a spatial covered back porch and outdoor entertaining area and a 100-year-old-plus restored cabin both of which provide much space and room for guests to enjoy. This is the first time Riverview Ranch has been put on the open market to sell after being meticulously maintained by its longtime Owner since 1986.

For more than 30 years, Riverview Ranch has entertained and hosted private family events such as parties, weddings, and weekend fishing trips. The centerpiece to all the entertaining is the main house and the guest cabin located on a substantial, continuous riverfront of the South Holston River, a productive blue-ribbon trout fishery. Directly on-site, there is an established natural and private put-in/take-out for boats, providing strategic access for coordinating floats and fishing trips with guests.

Other than the residential structure sites, the balance of the property is comprised of approximately 12± acres in pasture land or clearing and approximately 35± acres of timberland.
