About Randy Wellman

We live in Collierville, TN. I work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and my wife works at Baptist Memorial Hospital. I'm originally from the north but like southern living much better as does my wife, Kelly, who grew up in this area. We recently became empty nesters but loving the new lifestyle change.

Randy Wellman purchased this house in 2011

Why Randy Wellman chose Alabama Mountains

Waterloo is a place that grows on you. We have been going there for over 20 years yet continue to discover more reasons to return. That's why we finally decided to build a vacation house there a few years ago. Not only is it a beautiful area of the country and a fun place for family vacations, but it is a wonderful community where people are friendly, considerate,and helpful. Likewise, it is a place where you can enjoy your privacy in a very tranquil setting, let your hair down, and truly relax. And, of course, if you like the water, then Waterloo is the place to be. In just a few minutes, you can be playing, fishing, or just cruising down the river for miles, with no hassles whatsoever.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional sightseeing both on and off the lake. Bring your own boat or rent one from local marina.

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the lake house. The owners are thoughtful in all of the things they provide for comfort. They were also very helpful to us while we were there. The house is beautiful and the lake was a lot of fun.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious and comfortable and was every bit as nice as it appears in the pictures. It was nicely equipped and clean. Our group included people ages 3 to 80 and all had a great time. There were plenty of games, toys and equipment to keep everyone entertained. The cove was a nice walk for those that wanted to explore or get a bit of physical activity, but was accessible by driving down a limestone path for those that weren't able to walk up and down all the stairs.

My only suggestion for those planning a trip here is to bring all of you food and essentials with you. Many of the small stores and restaurants in the area are closed, so there are no quick trips to the store. A 30-40 minute drive will get you to a variety of places for whatever you need

The owner was very responsive to our questions and checked to make sure we had everything we needed. The house rules and check out procedures are very reasonable and practical.

We searched for a large place to bring our kids and parents to relax, bond and just have fun. Thank you Randy for creating an environment that allowed us to make some great family memories and have a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: You are right about bringing your food unless you plan to drive to Florence. Although there is a convenient store there that will open back up the end of this month which can help with a few items. It also some breakfast and lunch food but not much else

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 friends doing a missionary work in Hardin County, Tennessee (JW dot org). This house accommodated our needs perfectly. Easy to find, and lots of parking. The bedroom and bathroom arrangements worked out well. Having two separate living rooms and kitchens was nice: the adults could relax upstairs, while the teenagers enjoyed the downstairs (complete with a foosball league). The house is well stocked with a lot of amenities (books, games, DVDs, toiletries, and especially the coffee), the bedding was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were able to use the gas grill a few nights and enjoy the scenery from the back porch. Take a trip down the stairs and you find a cool fire pit area, loaded with anything you might want (the weather was too hot for us to be there much) and the four kayaks were a lot of fun to take out on the lake. Randy was always available by phone or text to help out, and was very reasonable when it came to the cost. Thanks for providing exactly what we needed!

Great house for a large group-- wonderful and responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

Three families shared the Wellman's vacation house for a mini family vacation, and we were very happy with the property and Randy's responsiveness! The house is supplied with just about everything we needed, to include some toys and children's books. The large common areas and multiple dining areas came in handy, along with the huge wrap around deck! When we had questions or needed a bit of assistance, Randy went out of his way to help out and make our stay even better. The lot is on a quiet cove with a pleasant view of trees off the back deck. We were hoping for a swimming opportunity on the property's waterfront, but the cove isn't the best place for that-- there are some local beaches are parks available within a couple miles. Waterloo is a quiet little town without distractions, and Lorence is about half an hour away with all the major chain stores. All in all, this was a great house for our use, especially with a large group of kids needing lots of beds. We happily recommend this property and the Wellmans!

Great House - Very Nice Owners

  • 5 of 5

So this place is what VBRO is all about. House and location were perfect. Pictures and description very accurate. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. House was in excellent condition and floor plan is one of the best I have ever stayed in with a large group. We had 4 adults and 6 kids and had tons of room. This part of Pickwick is very nice. Very quiet and lots of great wild life. Thank you so much for a great vacation. We will be back.
