Overview

Tennessee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-12)

Nestled in a Kentucky Lake Penninsula in Buchanan, Tennessee, this quaint, country cottage has a dazzling view with a back patio and steps leading right to the water's edge. Fish for bass, catfish, and bluegills right from the large, private dock or just set back and enjoy the nostalgia of a cabin that once was the getaway place of Merle Kilgore. One of Nashville's greatest country music industry music moguls and a multi-hit songwriter, Merle used to come here all the time to write and to relax. Sometimes even stars like Hank Williams Jr., Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker, and others would end up hanging out here with Merle at this quiet, lazy, lakehouse retreat. Affectionately named 'The Boogie Shack', there are still many pictures of Merle and various celebrities on the walls so that you can enjoy the place's history. It'll almost make you feel like you are staying at a little, waterfront museum.

Conveniently close to the the Paris Landing State Park, you really just can't beat the location. It's rather spacious, too. Having the capacity to sleep twelve with 5 pull-out beds(4 doubles and 1 queen-size), one four-post bed(also a queen) in the main bedroom, a large living room with cable TV, a complete kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, and a washer and dryer, you'll have everything you need. Whether you are planning a family vacation or a fishing trip with your buddies, boogie on down to the Boogie Shack. You won't be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Pleasantly surprised to find this vacation house much nicer than expected ... pictures do not do it justice. Owners supplied much more than most do. Very clean and ample EVERYTHING! If you are a country music fan a tour of the pictures will give you much enjoyment .... thanks to the owners for offering this rental, we will be back. "M"

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Boogie Shack. Being right on the lake was amazing! My kids enjoyed finding snails and catching frogs as well as swimming and fishing. It was a little difficult to keep our youngest (10 months old) out of all the knick knacks and breakables, but all in all, we had a great trip!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The Boogie Shack is a great vacation spot. Very clean, comfortable and packed with history. You cannot leave the Boogie Shack without knowing a little more about Merle Kilgore. Fishing was great. Kentucky Lake has tons of fish. You can even fish from the bank & dock and still catch a lot. The wooded lot offers great privacy and seclusion. Definitely want to go back to the Boogie Shack.

October Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. This property is absolutely perfect for someone if you want to fish or just take it easy. The listing's photos don't do it justice. A lot of charm, great view, very peaceful and quiet. The owner is great to work with and is very accommodating. If you want to go to a place that offers tranquility, this is your place. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
