About John & Marie Golden
Ten years ago Marie and I walked the aisle and said "I Do!" I have always loved lake living and now she likes it as much as I do. I brought a cabin on a lake in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas into her life and she saw the peace and calm that lake living brought to our family. Three years ago we moved into our current home on Old Hickory Lake. We feel like we are on vacation every day. Some of our pleasures include watching the sun rise over the lake in the mornings, watching it set over the lake at dinner or taking a moonlit ride in the boat at night. Life is better at the lake. We want to share the glow we feel at the lake with others.
John & Marie Golden purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why John & Marie Golden chose Mount Juliet
We had been looking for a special lake property to share for some time. We looked at many homes that were nice, but when we walked into this home we knew it was the one for us. We have owned vacation property on the lake as well as for a permanent residence and we have rented property for family outings on the lake over the years. We know what it takes to make a great time for our family and friends and believe we can create that for you, too. The house is very comfortable and has plenty of room for a group up to 10. We especially like the covered deck facing the lake. There are lots of chairs and a couple of tables for family gatherings during warm weather but there is plenty of gathering space in the living room during the colder periods. However, it also has a coziness that would make an intimate outing for a couple. The house is conveniently located to many amenities and yet gives the feeling of being secluded. It is located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by lake people. We are a very sociable bunch until about 10:30 and then the lights usually go out. That makes it easier to watch the beautiful sunrise in the morning. We believe you will find the peace and quiet of a secluded retreat but the excitement of downtown Nashville a short drive away. All water related activities are a short, comfortable walk through the shaded back yard to our covered dock.
What makes this Cottage unique
The tree covered lot gives abundant shade during summer making for a cool walk down to the dock. The lot is level with an easy pathway to the lake. The covered back deck provides a fabulous view of the water and is a great place to hang out. The covered boat slip provides a safe, protected place to dock your boat and the huge swim platform gives you a great place to sun or just sit and watch the sun set. The Golden Getaway provides a peaceful, relaxed setting that will leave you refreshed at the end of your vacation.

When you think of a lakeside cottage for vacation this is exactly what you have in mind. Clean, comfortable, cozy and close to all that the area has to offer. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at John & Marie's "Golden Getaway" and I am sure anyone else would also. John was extremely gracious and helpful during our stay. Thank you for a great experience.
Great House in Perfect Location!!!
Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Golden Getaway! The owners have truly thought of everything. The spacious deck on the back of the house is stocked with everything for a fun filled day on the water - paddle board, life jackets, fishing poles - and a hot tub for winding down at the end of the day! The shaded back yard offers a fire pit and horse shoes before reaching the dock where you’ll find a paddle boat and kayaks. Adults and kids alike had a really great time with all of the water options. And the marina is really close, with weekday rentals priced affordably.
John greeted us upon arrival to give us a tour of the house and answer any questions we had about the area. We saw him once more when we called to report a minor issue. He came right over and attended to the situation promptly.
The home is spacious and the pictures didn’t do it justice. Located in a residential area less than 30 minutes from downtown Nashville. Plenty of parking at the property.
We thoroughly enjoyed each day spent on Old Hickory Lake. We didn’t want to leave the house for much. But we did venture out on occasion. We tried Catch 22 Gastropub - it was delicious!!!
This house is close enough to anything you want and far enough away to enjoy yourself and unwind. Best location we saw on the lake and great proximity to anything else we were interested in.
Thanks to John and Marie for sharing your home with us!! And for your kind words toward our family. We have already recommended this home to others and would happily return ourselves.
Fun in TN
We absolutely loved this place! John and Marie are the best hosts we have encountered in our years of rentals. The house is clean, comfortable and has everything you would need. The lake is wonderful, we enjoyed the paddle boat and sitting on the back porch admiring the view. It's just far enough away from Nashville to feel secluded, but easy enough to hop on the freeway and hit all that Nashville has to offer.
Would highly recommend this home and when we come back we will be looking for the Golden Getaway!
Thanks Sandy for such a nice review. We are so pleased you and your family had such a nice vacation and we look forward to your return.

This property was beyond all expectations. The house was spacious with an incredible back porch/property right off the lake. Fishing gear, kayaks and other amenities were available for our use. The owner met us during our check in time. He was very respectful and helpful. He provided us with a plethora of information with regards to the lake and surrounding area. I highly recommend this property to anyone. Mr and Mrs Golden, thanks again for our incredible stay!
Perfect location, close to everything you could ever want/need. They were extremely nice and met us at the door to give us a tour. Very clean and relaxing property!
Thank you for taking time to review our property. We appreciate your kind words and try to provide all our guests a relaxing space to refresh.

30th Birthday Weekend
We took my fiancé to Tennessee for his 30th birthday! We had a wonderful time and the house was everything listed here and MORE! We are from WV and there was 8 of us. If we ever make another trip, we will definitely check this property for availability first!
