About Jack or Lenore

We have traveled all over and enjoy hosting other travelers at our 'Home Away From Home'. When we first saw this home...all we wanted to do was stay and never return to the stresses of life. Alas, we couldn't escape to the Cabin as often as we planned, so the next best thing was to make them available to those Vacation Home Rental travelers that know the secret of comfortable hospitality with surroundings at prices and environments offered that are superior to city-centered Hotel Suites. RELAX ! ENJOY!

Jack or Lenore purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Jack or Lenore chose Tennessee

Our Home is in the perfect location for those who want to enjoy: the 'Gatlinburg Cabin' feeling without driving all the way to East Tennessee, being close enough to participate in Nashville's BIG-CITY 'sights and Sounds' and, enjoy local festivals and visiting wonderful historic sites and activities just minutes from our Home.

What makes this cabin unique

When we first pulled into the driveway and saw this home it felt to us like we had just arrived at a 'Vacation Destination'. The setting, the trees, the lake, the cabins and the scent of the evergreen trees were welcoming and familiar. Our home offers a relaxing atmosphere, beautiful lake, the freedom of 'doing nothing' and plenty of things to see in the area. Forget about your 'rushed life', the job, tons of 'appointments' to keep. Come and reconnect with your family and friends, enjoy the awesome sunsets and sunrises and feel the 'pressures' just melt away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed your home. It is a wonderful place in a beautiful setting. We rented a pontoon boat and focused on fishing and we caught lots of fish. It was a peaceful and restful stay. Hopefully we will be back on our annual get-away next year. It was great.

Peaceful Lake Cabin! Close to Nashville
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 30 reviews

Relaxing stay....

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay while visiting Nashville area (about an hour away). We also visited Cummins Falls State Park(about 1.5 hrs away) A "swimming hole" rated one of the best in the US. We also enjoyed fishing across the street from the house, s'more by the fire, playing checkers under the covered patio and watching the sunset over the lake. (Jack and Lenore should add a picture of a sunset to the listing....just breathtaking!!)

The little things potential renter will want to know....

~There are 2 rental units in this home. (The other renters were not aware and were a little shocked when we told them we were also staying there.)

~There is a strong signal, but it's not "free Wifi" as it states in the listing.

Peaceful and beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We rented the two bedroom option. It was very clean, comfortable and cozy with a perfect setting for fishing by the water across the street. I didn't realize until after I booked it that Internet would need to be set up through my phone which would have been very helpful to have in the house. The owner was extremely gracious, helpful and accommodating.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Jack and Lenore's 2BR 1 BA apartment outside of Nashville, TN in Castalian Springs, TN for our honeymoon. Located in a quiet area with beautiful scenery, the proximity of Nashville minus the city traffic, quick and easy access to nearby stores along with plenty of things to do in town made for a great honeymoon. Having a clean smell as we first entered, the furniture being well kept and in good condition, as well as the organization and decoration of the apt impressed us as we first entered. We especially enjoyed having the opportunity to cook in the apt as kitchenware was also provided. Jack and Lenore were wonderful to be in communication with for renting their apt as they were quick to respond to our emails. We also had the opportunity of meeting them while we were at their apt and they were very friendly, loving people who took time to talk with my wife and I and get to know us.

Owner's Response: Dear Newlyweds; Thank you for choosing our home for your Honeymoon visit to Tennessee. While you were not our first "Honeymooners", you were the first we had the chance to greet. We greatly enjoyed the opportunity to meet you and congratulate you on your marriage. You are a wonderful couple. Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay at our cabin. Its rewarding for us to read your comment on how clean and comfortable it was. We strive to present our homes as warm, inviting and clean welcoming quiet places to relax and recover from the hustle and bustle of Nashville. We hope you can visit again. All the best to you both on this wonderful journey of life. Jack and Lenore

Once Upon a Time...

  • 1 of 5

...this was a cozy, adorable cottage. Now the home is old and tired, as well as everything in it. We made the best of it, but were disappointed that the care and maintenance was not up to our standards. We didn't think the idea of sharing common space and the grill was going to be a problem, but we did find out it's not the best idea. You really have no privacy and you have to schedule your cooking times with the other guests. Fortunately, we were able to work things out with the other family. On a positive note, there was plenty of hot water and the air conditioning worked well. We were happy for the washer and dryer to launder towels and wash cloths because there wasn't a good supply for a week. We met the owner, Jack, who was a very nice fellow.

Owner's Response: As the Owner of this Home for 7+ years, I assure you that our Wonderful, Cozy and consistently highly rated Home is still a 5 Star Home. The guest that checked out of our Home on the SAME DAY that these guests checked in, rated our home with a very thoughtful 5 Star Review, using superlatives such as: "beautiful, very clean, well-kept and pleasant". How, in the space of less than 24 hours, can our home go from "5's" to this most recent review? On the 4th day of their 6 night of our bathroom lights went out. I was at the cabin within an hour of their call and fixed it. They were very appreciative of the quick response. During my personal visit with them, they said that they were very comfortable. Nothing negative about our Home was ever mentioned. We provide our guests with a very ample supply of towels etc. for their stay. Our Home is not tired and the care and maintenance of our home measures up to our high ownership standards.
