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"

Spent a long weekend to visit with family nearby. Fun reading the history and looking at all pictures. Enjoyed the dock and even caught a couple of fish!

Wonderful family get away

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took our grown children and two boats for a 3day weekend to watch the eclipse. We had a wonderful time. The house is great. It might need a little TLC in places but overall it was perfect for my crew. We want to come back.

Great family get away together

  • 4 of 5

We came with our family of 13 , had the best weekend . Plenty of room , the only down point for us was the hide away beds needs new mattress . .we made lots of good memories . The boat shied was great . We rented a pontoon boat not far from this cabin at Crypress Springs Resort , so we used the boat shied a lot . Our grandkids went swimming right off the side of boat shied . The walk way across needs a little work but we enjoyed ourselves . Thank you so much .
