Mount Juliet House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-16)

Vacationer's paradise! Swim, boat, or fish from dock of this lake front property on beautiful Old Hickory Lake. It has a monster size two story deck that will hold up to 30 people. Rehabed with new custom wood floors. Property is great for large groups, ladies get togethers, family reunions, small parties, etc.

Close to scenic downtown Nashville Tennessee home of the Grand Ole Opry. There is plenty of new restaurants, shopping and entertainment areas close by.

A very relaxing place to stay and fun for the kids.

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.

House needs a good deep cleaning.

  • 2 of 5

I have to say the house was very dirty....floors and carpets especially really need to be cleaned or replaced.. I informed Rusty that the place was not clean when we arrived and think he really needs a new cleaning company. And to get down to the lake, quite the walk, very steep hill to go down AND come back up.

Owner's Response: The renter stated that cleaning was not to her liking, I asked if she wanted those areas touched up she said they had got it, they just wanted me aware of it. There was a broken tile that was addressed. I never like it when there is a room missed sweeping or a carpet not addressed. We are at end of summer season and will be doing updates as we do every year. Thanks Rusty

This rental is not as advertised!!!

  • 1 of 5

We first got to the rental and it was 50 degrees inside, we had to turn the thermostat on and it took several hours to warm up due to the size of the house. I immediately went to the hot tub to turn it on as this was the key component to renting this property!!! The hot tub was not operational. I contacted the owner who showed up a short time later and advised that the circuit breaker blew and he would work on it and have it functioning the next day. I was quite upset as this was a HUGE draw for us! I actually wanted something closer to downtown but a rental with a hot tub was more important! I would have overlooked many other drawbacks to this rental if the hot tub would have been functional but it wasnt...the jetted tub in the master bath was filthy...when I turned the jets on, black scum came out of the jets...I was in the tub when the slimy scum came out of the jets and was horrified! The rest of the house seemed to be partially cleaned, it did not appear to have any professional or deep cleaning. The coffee pot was filthy and needed a deep cleaning before use and there was old food left in downstairs oven. The owner stated that we would receive gift cards to compensate us for the hot tub not working but we never received anything. I understand that this is a rental and not supposed to be grade a accommodations but this rental feels more like a fraternity house, with old, dirty furniture than a family rental.

Owner's Response: This is the same group that submitted a previous review, they were unhappy the hot tub could not be fixed, I did offer to send gift cards but could not get an address from anyone. They was no way to make them happy with the power outage and the pump freezing . The rest of there comments are simply not true. We always try to keep everything nice for all our customers. I hate to see an un happy customer, although I was there twice during there stay trying to fix hot tub , they seemed to be having a good time. There was never another comment about cleaning problems that needed to be addressed when I was over there. Rusty

All adult weekend

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the home with a total of 8 adults. This house suited us perfectly. It is a lot larger than what we had imagined and the decks/views are amazing. This home was clean and comfortable and very true to the pics. Very convenient location. We really enjoyed it and did not have one issue. Thank you Rusty for allowing us this pleasure.

Owner's Response: Upon notice that the hot tub was not working we were on sight within an hour trying to figure out the problem. Pump was froze up where it looked like we had lost power in the snow. We started a heater working on the inside of cabinet and returned the next morning. Upon noticing leak, I call repair man to see if he had pump in stock. He said he would check and try to get it repaired. He did not get reaired until Monday after people left. They had a problem getting fireplaces lit which I helped them with. At no time was ther a mention of a problem with anything else. They gave a bad review after hot tub was unable to be fixed. thanks Rusty

Large Lake House

  • 4 of 5

Large house in convenient location for us. Plenty of room for our family and we had a fun Christmas gathering here. This place would probably be a lot more fun for a summer get together as it has a large deck and backyard and is on what looks to be a nice deepwater cove.

Good sized kitchen that was up to date with good appliances. House seemed very clean overall. Upstairs sun room a good space for a group. We had a toddler sleeping downstairs and had a little trouble regulating the heat and getting it warm enough for him but worked it out in the end. Internet seemed to work just fine.The couches were a little tired and the wallpaper in the main floor bath a little scary, but we have found this to be what most VRBO houses are like - they surely take a beating!

We would definitely stay here again.

Did you happen to find any glasses (in a blue soft case)? My mom's if so.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a couples weekend and the house was very comfortable for 12 people. Lots of room and great views of the lake! We took a taxi to downtown nashville Saturday night and the rate wasn't horrible at all! Great house for larger groups.
