About Randi Bogard
I am a mom to my two amazing children and to my dogs! I am a NJ native and have been raising my children who are in/off to college. I have lived quite a few places over the years and am ready for the back half of my life.Beckoned to Nashville area for some reason. It may be the music! Or the amazing foodie places, and the friendly people. But mostly, for my beautiful home on the lake. I want to share it with guests for a memorable time.
Randi Bogard purchased this House in 2016
Why Randi Bogard chose Old Hickory
It really is a unique and ideal setting and beautiful home. As soon as my daughter and I walked in we were WOWED! It was serendipitous. And I bought it from two amazing people who sing and have written songs here. A true GEM.

Gorgeous Lake House near Nashville
Such a fabulous host with a home of breathtaking windows and much comfort. We really liked the layout of the house. The master bedroom is spacious with deck and lake views. Randi was so easy to get a hold of during our stay and helpful with any questions. The stunning view welcomes you as you enter this house and the house provides all you need for a comfortable stay. We loved the neighborhood - saw lots of deer and enjoyed our daily walks. It is an easy drive into Nashville and to the airport. We had a great time celebrating our daughter's 30th birthday there. Randi even helped us with a contact for boat rental where the boat was brought and picked up from the dock for us. It was a great and memorable week. Highly recommend staying here!
The property is a 2 mile drive through an uphill sharp winding curving road. You're about 35 minutes from Nashville. The property would be gorgeous but needs a massive clean up. There is so much debris, leaves, spider webs, dirt across the entire property making it difficult to enjoy the outdoors or the walk down to the river. The dock was full of nasty bugs making it impossible to walk on the dock without stepping on bugs. The inside of the home was clean, overall, it is very spacious but there was a lack of supplies. We had 5 towels for 6 guests to use, there was no hand soap in either bathroom, the containers were not filled up. There was no extra toilet paper or paper towels. We arrived around 2:45pm hoping we could check in 15 minutes early but the cleaning lady came running over across the street saying she hadn't cleaned the home yet. We were unable to check in until 3:45pm, 45 minutes past the check in time. The home was very warm and the owner was controlling the AC, which made it difficult to be comfortable in the home when the AC was being controlled by someone not actually in the home. The last night we were in the home, we were playing a board game when we saw three people fishing on our dock. In order to get down and up to the dock you needed to go through the screened in porch. This was a very unsettling feeling as the screened in porch does not lock and strangers are down on our dock at a home we are paying to stay at. Just overall, a disappointing trip. The home fit what we needed, a place to sleep/stay but it was not at all comfortable. I would have preferred to stay at a hotel, that was clean, climate controlled, and had the necessary supplies to have a comfortable stay. This was our first time through VRBO, hopefully our next VRBO adventure will not cause these issues/concerns.
Alyssa, thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I am so devastated to hear this. Hand soaps, paper towels, and toilet paper should always be stocked for guests. When I started hosting my lake house, I wanted to be as accommodating as possible, so I give full access to the linen and towel closet to guests rather than locking it up. I have reached out to my cleaning crew and a property manager and will be flying out this week to get all of these concerns addressed and fixed immediately. In the guidelines given I do recommend leaving the temperature at no lower than 70-this is to prevent the hvac from freezing up and leaving guests in uncomfortable temperatures, and it also allows me to keep my rates down. Thank you for your honest feedback, and I hope that you’ll give us another try in the future at a discount. I would love to make this right.
Old Hickory on the lake
Very nice lake home. Great views and enjoyed the lake swimming. Convenient to everything we needed. And short 20 min drive to Nashville excitement!
Owner was prompt, fair, and great communicator.
4th July stay
Nice house! Love the size of the family room area. Plenty of space for our family to all eat at the table and play games in the evening. Easy drive to Nashville which we did a few times but really enjoyed relaxing out in the water most of the trip.
Old Hickory Lake
Great house with beautiful views of the lake. Enjoyed fishing, kayaking, and just relaxing.
Great Weekend Lake House Stay
Beautiful lake house with plenty of space and sleeping spots for large groups. Great view of the lake and boats, especially in the evening, and plenty of space on the rear tiered balconies. Our group had a great time down at the dock and in the lake with the inflatables that are provided. House is a 25 minute uber drive from downtown, making it the best of both worlds to take advantage of downtown Nashville and the privacy of the lake house. Randi did a great job communicating with us during our stay with any questions that came up. Our group had a great time and would recommend this place to others.
Close to Nashville but in the NW about 15 miles to Gorgeous Old Hickory Lake which is booming with vacationers for the water sports and fishing!
Has it all! Close to Opryland too. Great spot for EVERYTHING you want.
