About Rusty

Hi my name is Rusty Rust. I am a single dad of two sons. I am a commercial and investment real estate agent. I am a pro bass fisherman and I have along with my co-host Dan our own fishing show on TV call Fishin Affliction. I love to fish and spend a great deal of time on the water. I do have a pontoon boat available for rental during your stay.

Rusty purchased this house in 2005

Why Rusty chose Tennessee

Has large 2 story decks, hot tub, pool table, lake front with dock, 7 beds in house. 1 king, 5 queens , a twin and a sleeper sofa.

What makes this house unique

I just love this house and having its own dock on the lake. I can take my boat out fishing or just fish off the dock. I can ride my jet skis. It is my home away from home. There is a small fishing boat and pontoon boat available for rent

Guestbook comments from the owner

Actually the whole side of the pool table was broke and is being replaced, couch with broke back is being replaced as well, (a party got a little more than wild) while the new cleaning lady did show up later this group stayed 3.5 hours later there last day and i discounted half the 1st day. They DID have clean sheets, linens, hot tub was cleaned, decks were blown off, dishes were clean, railing has 2000 pound cable so there is NO WAY godzilla is going throuh it. We are taking care of some repairs after a extremely busy active season.

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the water and the two foot cove is just around the bend. Perfect for large groups and plenty of space for everyone.

Rusty was very responsive and helpful, easy to work with. Would visit again and recommend to other.

Bachalor Party

  • 4 of 5

This lake house is the perfect combination of accommodating, roomy and convenient. It was clean and well provided. All cooking and cleaning appliances worked including the outdoor grill. The cove had plenty of action and yet was quiet enough to enjoy a relaxing environment.

We comfortably slept 12 26 year old young men (a couple used the air mattresses) and had a great time celebrating my son's engagement.

Fair warning - you're 30 minutes from Broadway.

Rusty - the owner - was very responsive to questions and very hospitable once we arrived.

We look for ward to returning with our entire family - Enjoy

Very comfortable, plenty of room!

  • 4 of 5

We had a family get-together for Thanksgiving at Rusty's lake house, and found the house so homey and comfortable. We were able to cook a full Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen (with 3 cooks) without tripping over each other, and were pleasantly surprised to find many pantry supplies were available for use in case we forgot something. We loved relaxing in the hot tub, and especially enjoyed the pool table. There is plenty of room to spread out if you want privacy, or to be together as a large group. The home is a little older, and if you are looking for luxury accommodations you will be disappointed. But the place is roomy and comfortable - like staying in a good friend's or family members home. The area is beautiful with the lake and rolling hills, but is convenient to Nashville, which has many attractions and a fantastic music scene. I wish we could have stayed a couple more days!

Nice, big house, plenty of room for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

I was a little concerned with the previous reviews I had seen for this rental. However, we decided to go ahead and rent because for the price and space offered, no other rentals compared.

Well, let me put your concerns (If you had any) at rest! This is a lovely place! Our group had 12 folks spanning 3 generations. We had PLENTY of space. The kids had a fantastic time in the hot tub, we played pool, enjoyed the beautiful lake view from the covered deck and had a family movie night. Even though we decided to take the short 30min ride into Nashville to do stuff, we all agreed that we would've been content to just hang out at the house.

Pros: plenty of space (6 beds, 4 baths)

Pool table

Hot tub

Plenty of towels, toilet paper, blankets, pillows condiments, etc

Amazing views of the lake


Nicely decided


If you have someone that is elderly it might be a little difficult for them to get up the front steps, use the showers (They are all shower/tub combos) & the status to the lower level are very steep(you can access the lower level from the lower driveway). My grandmother decided it was easier for her to stay upstairs which was no biggie.

The downstairs shower either was very cold or very hot. No in between. Again, there are plenty of other showers to use.

Some of the carpets had stains and the furniture needed repair, some times where loose

The beds aren't super comfortable (I'm noticing that this had been the norm for the homes I've rented on VRBO though)

NONE of the "cons" I've listed were a deal breaker though! We had an AMAZING time and there's no way we would've had as much fun scattered in hotel rooms or cramped in a smaller place. We have even talked about trying to rent the house sometime in the summer so we can rent the boat and really enjoy the lake.
