Overview

About the property

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"

Good time

  • 4 of 5

Biggest problem I had was booking with VRBO. When I finally spoke with Yvonne she got everything straightened out,but VRBO is gonna make you not wanna follow through. However,property is like a trip back in time. Am glad I got to visit a home that has the history and ambiance of a day gone by. Nice spot on lake. Home needs a little work,but has got every thing you need and more.

NICE GET AWAY

  • 4 of 5

The covered dock in a great cove is the selling point! The fold out couches could use some padding but everything else was wonderful. It's a very cozy cabin.

We had a really good stay!

  • 5 of 5

Rustic with a ton of character; the best way to describe it. Merle, may you rest in peace, we enjoyed staying at your place. The house is very clean and it has everything you need for your stay. I was there with my wife and two daughters that are in their early 20's and we all had a great stay over Labor Day weekend. Having coffee on the deck every morning , sun coming up, looking out at the water, was almost worth the cost....lol. All of my email and phone correspondence were answered quickly and always very helpful.

We'll be back for sure. My wife and I are already considering it as a nice getaway over the winter months. Peace and quiet with a fire going in the fireplace.....Yes and Thank You

Thank you!

Very cool place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the Boogie Shack. I would give it a 5 but it was a bit run down. But it was very clean and really interesting to say the least. Bright red bathtub and kitchen counter tops were just the tip of the iceberg. But we enjoyed all the pictures and everything worked well

Letting Go Of Your Everyday Stress

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Boogie Shack numerous times arriving full of the everyday stress and letting it all disappear during our stay. The cabin is always immaculately cleaned and filled with all our needs and so much rich country history. Dealing with the property manager has always been a great experience as she has always been available to help with our stay . We highly recommend the Boogie Shack for those looking for a peaceful stress free vacation spot on beautiful Kentucky Lake
