What makes this cottage unique

Staying on the water is a unique experience! This is a calm water marina--an inlet from the Cumberland River. The movement of the Aqualodge while you sleep is like a gentle hammock slightly swaying in the wind. The house but stays in place so cannot be taken out on the river . It is such a unique and tranquil experience! So peaceful!

This was an awesome experience. I loved it.

I love unique places to stay and this one didn't disappoint. All the comforts of home and on the water. Peaceful, relaxing and close to Nashville. 2 experiences in one trip. Highly recommend.

Nice cozy, clean place for my wife and I. It has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed labor day weekend. The manager Brenda was available at all times and very helpful. Houseboat came with the slip next to it so we could park our pontoon boat. Enjoy coffee on the little deck as the sun comes up. Very peaceful.

lovely, unique setting. Adorable cottage

  • 4 of 5

Every step of renting this adorable cottage was effortless. Before our stay, I had never slept on any type of boat. After our stay, I want my very own cottage on the water! I slept like a baby. The living room/kitchen area is small, but cozy. Luckily we love the outdoors and made good use of all the outdoor areas of the cottage to catch up with family. I would stay here again.

The only drawback is that there isn't much to do there. Perfect for a place to stay while you occupy your time elsewhere all day, but if you plan to just chill out at the cottage for the day you may find yourself with a bit of cabin fever. Pool access would have definitely earned this stay 5 stars.

Sea legs and stained sheets

  • 1 of 5

The AguaLodge is a great concept over traditional lodging. However, if you have anyone in your party staying with you who has a tendency to get sea sick you may want to forego staying on the AguaLodge. The other issue we experienced was bedding not in acceptable condition. Once I brought it to owner attention, she took care of it.

For our inconvenience, the owner offered for me to book again for 2 nights and she would give me a 3rd night free. I declined the offer.

Owner's Response: Karen, Hi. I am deeply saddened by your 1 star review. I feel like we went above and beyond to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible--securing the slip next to the Aqualodge for your fishing boat, saying it was okay to bring your dog, giving you directions in order to avoid road construction, etc. I had 2 people look at the sheets we took off your bed (per your request) and neither one saw any stains on the sheets. We always wash the sheets with bleach after every use to keep them white and pristine. As far as the "sea legs", you are on a houseboat so there will be some movement. That is one of the things people love about houseboats! The boat is in a protected area from the current so the movement is very minimal compared to most marinas. I did offer a free night's stay for your inconvenience and to refund the cleaning fee. I'm sorry you could not be made happy during your stay. We made every attempt to make your weekend enjoyable. Thank you, Lori

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying at the Aqua Lodge. Brenda the property manager was very welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone that is looking for somewhere unique to stay at a very reasonable price.

A cousin's weekend to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property for our annual cousins trip (all girl weekend with out husbands and kids) and we thoroughly enjoyed out stay in this cottage on the water. It was a pleasure meeting Brenda the property manager but more importantly I loved how accommodating Lori was with helping us make this happen. I truly appreciated it all and I must say it was an experience for our memory archives. The Cottage was clean and very accommodating to sleep 6 people comfortably which was a breath of fresh air. The cost was much cheaper than a hotel room and it was a great way to get away from it all! Thank you both, Lori and Brenda for making this trip such a success.
