My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, scientists (Oak Ridge National Lab is 3 /12 miles away), and fishermen (lake is close). We are located just 5 miles from historic Oak Ridge.
Stoney Haven is just 2 1/2 miles from Hardin Valley Rd. where you will find eating places, unique stores, and Pellissippi State Community College.
If you are into major shopping, Turkey Creek is only 8.4 miles away. 3 1/2 miles away is the Univ. of TN Arboretum. There you will find unique plants and trails.
Our apartment is unique partly because I grew up in both Jordan and East Africa. The sign over the floating shelf dividing the living from kitchen area says "Karibu" which means "Welcome" in Swahili. The carved legs under a copper tray reminds me of our time in Jordan. The picture over the bed, however, is very American--"Sunday Morning in Sleepy Hollow".
Guests will have access to the entire finished downstairs area. That includes a bedroom(recently upgraded with a queen bed and tempurpedic mattress), two bathrooms, a living area, dining/kitchen area, and a den that has a sofa bed in it. In addition, guests will have access to a private washer/dryer. We also have a large yard that is enjoyable in the spring and summer.

I will be glad to let you know about sights, interesting museums, activities, and other questions you may have. But I respect your privacy and will not engage in unwanted conversations.
My name is Margaret Brown Hallquist. I grew up in a Medical Missionary home spending my early years in Ajloun, Jordan and then later in East Africa(mainly Kisumu, Kenya). I loved it! As children--and even into college years when I went back to Kenya to visit in the summer--we called other Missionaries "Aunt and Uncle."
Of course I have lived in the US now for many years and I love this country too.
Now that I am retired, I enjoy cooking. I even like to clean because it gives me a sense of well-being.
I also love to travel. Over the years I have been to Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France, Greece, Montenegro, England, Scotland, Jordan, Israel, Canada, Mexico, Zanzibar. But it's the people I've interacted with in these countries that has really made the difference!
