About Terry and/or Brenda George

My wife and I bought this property after living in the area for a number of years. In this picture we are relaxing in the air-conditioned sunroom. It is a beautiful area that is convenient to everything, yet has all the charms of country life.

We have completely refurbished the entire house to make it modern and comfortable. It has been a labor of love to see our home become a restful and comfortable place to return to.

Terry and/or Brenda George purchased this house in 2010

Why Terry and/or Brenda George chose Nashville

We have lived in this area for a long time and feel that there is no better location to visit or live in.

Clean, Cozy & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Business brought my husband and I to Nashville. We drove down from PA and we had no desire to stay "in town" and wanted a quiet home away from it all to stay in. This home did that and more. This home is very clean, cozy, well equipped and very comfortable. Everything you need is here! Being that this home is Lakeside was an even bigger bonus for us. We LOVED our stay and wished it was longer. Brenda and Terry were excellent with communication and very helpful to us being from PA and not knowing the area at all. We will be back for a week vacation and will be bringing the bass boat! Thank you again, Brenda & Terry.

Such a quiet and relaxing cottage to unwind in the country after sightseeing during in Nashville.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and included many much appreciated toiletries and condiments. The owners live next door and are friendly but respect your privacy. There was plenty of space for my family of four and the beds were very comfortable. My family enjoyed fishing behind the cottage on the river and there are also two docks available for use. All Nashville activities were a quick 25-30 minute drive. The neighborhood was quiet and tranquil. The owners were always quick to reply to all of my questions and my damage deposit was refunded hours after leaving the cottage. Would definitely recommend this hidden gem! Absolutely loved our stay and would stay again when visiting Nashville in the future!

A Quiet Remote Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the time together in this cozy spot. There is adequate closet space in the 2 bedrooms but very minimum extra storage in the kitchen area. Bedrooms were roomy and beds comfortable. However, living area seating is limited to 4. Neighborhood looks like it is still trying to recover from a flood. Unfortunately, the cool weather and water didn't promote good fishing.

Brenda and Terry were very cordial, prompt to fulfill requests and eager to please. Thank you, Georges!

Quiet Country Setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying here. The house was clean and every comfort of home was given. We didn't have to worry about anything and it was a short drive into Nashville (approximately 25 minutes). We were able to find a very cute little country store (Cash Saver in Ashland City) to purchase our food and come back and relax. There is a wonderful little restaurant close by with the best Catfish dinner I have ever had. If you are looking for a quiet little cottage, this is the place to stay. The weather wasn't on our side during our stay but sitting out back next to the river bank was very calming and relaxing.

An amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Tennessee, this lakeside home was perfect for us, out of the city but close enough to be able to be tourists. We visited so many places while here, the johnny cash museum, Johnny cash and june carters burial site, country music hall of fame, grand ole opry, the aquarium restaurant, and antique archeology. We definitely plan to come back. The house was so clean and cozy, all the essentials were there which was great. Thank you for opening up your home for us.

Quiet place off the beaten path

  • 3 of 5

The hosts are prompt with responses, the place is definitely quiet and out in the sticks. The property is nice, but I was very put off by the tilting of the floors, especially in the master bedroom. I felt like I was going to roll off the bed. We did attempt some fishing out back, a few nibbles, but no fish.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you felt this way. We do feel that this is an exaggerated complaint. In older re-modeled houses there is some uneveness to be expected. Most agree that this is just part of the charm of a country cottage.
