About the property

Get away from it all and relax in this gorgeous, spacious lakehouse!

Brand new furnishings in this gorgeous 4 bedroom/ 2.5 bath lakehouse. From the second you pull into the neighborhood, you'll understand the peace and relaxation of The Colony at Blue Water Bay. The open living room, kitchen, dining area and nook are perfect for spending time with family and friends. The spacious master with king sized bed is on the main level and has a gorgeous view and entry to the deck plus its own luxurious bathroom. Upstairs one of the 4 bedrooms is a loft bedroom with bunk beds (a full and a twin) and one of the best views of Center Hill Lake. Access to the loft is through a ladder from the nook area off of the living room. On the bottom level are two large bedrooms (one has a queen and a twin; the other has a king) and a full bath. There are 3 decks to enjoy. Every room has an amazing view. Have a cup of coffee in the morning on the gorgeous screened in porch. Or enjoy the lower deck's porch swing while the kids play games at the kid's picnic table. Grill out on the back deck with the gas grill. Enjoy the amazing Center Hill sunset from the beautiful living room windows. Every detail of this home is perfection- beautiful wooden cathedral ceilings and beams. Granite and stainless kitchen. Gorgeous lighting and flooring. And everything in the house is new- brand new linens, furniture, electronics, dishes, décor -all of it is fresh and newly decorated. Relax and unwind with movies on Netflix (included), or borrow a book or board game or DVD to enjoy during your stay. Free wifi is also included! Rent a boat during your stay from one of nine marinas at Center Hill (Hidden Harbor Marina is the closest), take a walk down the beautiful lake trail in the neighborhood to skip rocks or go swimming. Take advantage of the gorgeous neighborhood pool with outdoor fireplace. Canoe the Caney River, explore Fall Creek Falls state park, or go swimming at the Cummins Falls (all 30-45 minutes from the house). This is the perfect retreat if you're looking for things to do or if you want to do nothing at all. Relax and unwind, enjoy the peace and quiet, and make memories with family and friends. Whether you're looking as a couple for a place to get away and reconnect, a large family looking for a reunion spot, friends with kids or without, or a group of women ready for a girls' weekend... whatever the occasion or reason - you can't beat Greene Gables! Every detail has been thought of... kitchen accessories for preparing meals at home, comfortable furniture, excellent mattresses for a good night's sleep, porch décor and more. It's all here and waiting for you to enjoy!

About Beth Greene

We've been married for 12 years and own several rental properties- Greene Gables being our newest purchase. Our girls, 8 and 4, love coming to Center Hill and we are so excited to share this house that has quickly come to mean so much to us with others! We know you'll love it the way we do once you see it! It's an amazing house and neighborhood.

Beth Greene purchased this house in 2015

Why Beth Greene chose Tennessee

We instantly fell in love with this property. The spaciousness of the bedrooms and living area allow guests to spread out. You can't beat the view and the driveway is level and easy to get in and out of. We love the details of this home - everything is updated and new. And decorating and furnishing the lakehouse has been a blast! The comfort and enjoyment of our guests were our thoughts behind everything we've added to it. It's a great layout and floorplan, and there is nothing like enjoying a sunset from the deck. We also love the neighborhood pool - it's big, uncrowded, has beautiful views of the lake, grills and a fireplace ready for smores!

What makes this house unique

The house has super comfortable sleeping accommodations for 12. There are also two aerobeds so up to 15 could stay easily. There is a memory foam pull out couch that is unlike any fold-out couch ever made! It's so comfortable! The loft/4th bedroom is a perfect hang-out for kids but the bottom bunk is a full bed so adults can stay comfortably if needed. The decks and porches on the house are amazing, all have great views and really comfortable furniture (rocking chair, sofa, swing, kid's picnic table, papasan chair and more). The level driveway and easy to access entryways are another benefit. The huge bedrooms were another selling point for us. No one feels like they're getting cheated in terms of who gets the nicest rooms, they're all spacious and there are views from every room.

A beautiful home and a great location! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot to get away for a few days. We went with our family and our friends. There were 4 adults and 6 children total. Our kids had so much fun going down the lake trail, fishing at the lake, and skipping rocks. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck. The beds were comfortable and the set up was perfect for our families. Great hiking found close by and we enjoyed some time in Nashville. Thank you Greene family for sharing your lovely home!

Perfect house for a couple and adult children

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a long weekend with our adult children and their spouses. The view of the lake is beautiful, the house is well furnished, comfortable and very clean. We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen was well equipped. The community pool is well maintained and walking distance from the house. We are booking our next trip in August with two other couples! I highly recommend Greene Gables!

Great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Beth's place was great for a large, family get away. The location is perfect, and we especially loved the pool and screened in porch. I'm already looking forward to a return visit this fall. :)

Beautiful home with spectacular view close to Nash

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house in June 2016 for my annual family vacation. The house has everything you will need for either a relaxing or an adventurous vacation. I would highly recommend renting a pontoon boat for the entire day at Hidden Harbour Marina. My grandkids loved the slide. Would also recommend hiking Cummins Falls, 45 mins away to see the natural waterfalls and swimming hole. Absolutely beautiful. Have to hike abt 1/2 mile through water and down the hill but it was worth it!! The house is very comfortable and relaxing. If you love waking up and enjoying coffee on the multi level deck then this is the place to be. Neighborhood was quiet and the pool was large enough for multi families to enjoy at the same time. House is located near a town with a Walmart and fast food restaurants. Nashville is only an hour away.
