1511 Dennis Cove Road - Hampton, TN 37658
do NOT use this address for your GPS - it will send up up the wrong road! (marked with a red X)
If you are using a GPS set it for 205 Dennis Cove Rd Hampton, Tn. That will take you into town and to the blacktop. Follow the road until you get to the resort. You can't miss it..
