Hearthside Bank was established in 1920 as a Savings and Loan Company giving us over 100 years experience in Home Mortgage Loans. Due to our history Hearthside Bank is proud to have earned the reputation for being the "Home Loan Specialist."

For many years, Hearthside Bank has been one of the main sources of home loan financing in the area. Our rates on mortgages are always competitive.

Hearthside Bank has a variety of home loan terms with both fixed and adjustable rates. This allows us to offer you a mortgage to fit almost any budget.

If you are looking for that perfect lake vacation home, Hearthside Bank is also a leader in second home mortgages.

Investors in rental properties and commercial real estate can also get their lending through Hearthside Bank.

Be sure to check our competitive rates before you finance.

Home Improvement Loans

Hearthside Bank's home improvement loans give you the ability to renovate the home of your dreams. It's inevitable part of owning a home that it will need work at some point. The good news is that Hearthside Bank home improvement loans can make the repairs or improvements you need affordable. With Hearthside Bank you will get the flexibility to make the improvements on your own timeline, but also get competitive low rates that make it within your means.

The leaky roof, the poor insulation in the living room, or the refrigerator that doesn't stay cold, all these things can be remedied with our competitive rates for home improvement loans. Home Improvement Loans give you the ability to borrow money to improve your home without having to dip into your savings.

If repair is not what you are looking for and instead want to make improvements, we are there to help. Wanting to add a pool to the backyard or build a garage? Come visit us at Hearthside Bank.

Hearthside Bank has always maintained the reputation as the best and most experienced bank when it comes to dealing with construction loans in Kentucky, Tennessee, and southwest Virginia.

Home Equity Loans

Hearthside Bank's home equity loans can turn the investment in your home into accessible cash! This money can be used for home improvements, education, a new car, or whatever your needs.

We offer convenient, flexible terms and competitive interest rates on home equity loans. Unlike many loans, the interest you pay on a home equity loan may be deductible from your income taxes. Consult your tax advisor.

"Home Equity Line of Credit" (HELOC)

Our HELOC offers convenience and financial freedom in that your loan funds can be accessed simply by writing a check or making a transfer. The interest is paid only on the funds used. Low required monthly payments allow you to choose timing and amount of principal reduction. As your balance is reduced your funds become available for use.

  • Turn your home into a personal line-of-credit.
  • Enjoy easy payment terms and possible tax benefits
  • Consolidate bills or high interest loans into one convenient lower payment
  • You have an ongoing source of credit until maturity regardless how many times it is used and repaid.
