About Your Hosts
Both of us grew up on the West Coast. We discovered this little piece of paradise in 2010 while visiting friends. We recently retired from running a stressful construction business for 20 years and are now enjoying the fruits of our labor. Our "Retirement Gig" is finding sad and beat up home, renovating them and renting them to new families. When we aren't hosting our friends and families as they come to visit and discover the beauty of Tennessee, we enjoy flying small planes, driving muscle cars and spending hours on the water enjoying each others company. All of our family is still in California and include our beautiful daughter, who with her husband have blessed us with 3 amazing grandchildren, 2 awesome sisters and their families and our mom's. Of course our family wouldn't be complete without our fur baby. If you ever meet Titus you will fall in love with him too. Just don't let him know he's a dog... it's a secret!
Why Your Hosts chose Gallatin
Living in Hendersonville and so close to the lake we found ourselves spending tons of time on the water. Each evening as we loaded the boat up we talked about how nice it would be to have a lake house. We had friends who lived in this sweet little area that almost seemed to be forgotten. Each time we visited we talked about how it seemed like an old vacation resort area. When we were presented with the oppurtunity to buy this little cottage by the lake we knew we had to do it. The sunrise is beautiful as is the rise of the moon. The wildlife that comes out each day amazes us. The turtles sun themselves on logs, the deer graze by the waters edge and the turkey make a trek a few times a day from one side of the yard to the other. It's peaceful... It's beautiful... It's our home away from home.
What makes this Cottage unique
The resort feeling of the neighborhood captured our hearts several years ago. The abundance of wild life brings us joy. The ease of spending our days boating, skiing, fishing and then parking at our own covered dock is wonderful. We love enjoying our meals on the covered deck and then wrapping up in blankets on cool evenings and having fires and s'mores as we listen to the frogs croak and the fish leap out of the water. We knew we had to share this little bit of paradise with others as well.

Such a lovely place and neighbors were so friendly and generous. We took full advantage of what the property offered. We used kayak, and neighbor let us use his canoe. We had a great day on the lake exploring . Just 20-30 minutes to Nashville. - had a great day in Nashville too. Ended the 3-day vacation with a small fire and roasted marshmallows. Our small diog had a fantastic time with Bean and Coal. Finally, I took a walk each morning in neighborhood and the wildlife was abundant. Beautiful place and perfect stay.
We rented house as a mini vacation to get some quiet time do alot of fishing. The house was located in the perfect spot to get to the boat launch within just a few minutes and to grocery store. Definitely will stay here again
Thank you for staying with us and for your many kind words. I'm so glad you loved our cottage enough to book an extra night and want to come back again next year. Congratulations on getting those fish! :)
We enjoyed the house very much. Could have been better if we had a boat and could fully utilize everything. Also, keeping the AC so warm all the time was hard for us we like it cooler when we are sleeping. But very peaceful atmosphere and nice and relaxing for a couples trip!
Relaxing lake cottage nestled in the mountains 15 minutes outside of Nashville TN.
Great location for a Nashville TN experience. Friendly area with all the wild life right in your backyard. Relax on the deck overlooking the lake with your favorite glass of wine, or that morning cup of coffee.
Thank you for staying with us. We hope your Bucket List trip was everything you had hoped for. We appreciate you leaving our cottage so tidy upon checkout and hope you will consider us for a future trip to Nashville. :)
Lots of deer by the water
Awesome hot water in the shower.
Easy in and out.
Hosts were easy to communicate with.
Bed was a little too firm and too high. We felt like we had to jump.
Bathroom sink bowl was awkward and didn’t have good counter space. Cute though.
We will rent again!!!
We are glad you got to enjoy the deer. Even after years of seeing them grazing in our yard we still pause and enjoy them every time. It just never gets old.
It's crazy how tall the bed is with no risers. Old Judge Hancock must've been a tall man! We do have little stools out for those of us who need a little boost.
The bathroom sink is on the list for getting changed out to one a little less fancy and a lot more user friendly. Once we get a few free days on the calendar we will get that little project completed.
Thank you for staying with us and leaving our cozy cottage neat and tidy. We are looking forward to your next visit. :)
It is difficult to find a nice lake house with a covered dock and this one was exceptional. Clean, well maintained home and owners are excellent communicators. Fishing was very good, short drive to restaurants and shopping.
Thank you for your stay Duff. We are SO glad to hear you enjoyed our place AND that the fishing was good. We hope you will keep us in mind for your next trip here. :)
