Private quiet retreat
If you enjoy the great outdoors, this is the place for you. We enjoyed the hiking trails, kayaking, fishing in the creek, horseshoes, corn hole, card and board games, s’mores in the fire pit, and wildlife. We saw lots of turkey, deer, armadillos, fish, and even a bald eagle! The Crawfords are excellent hosts who’ve carefully thought through everything you need to enjoy the comforts of home and the Tennessee countryside. Perfect for all ages! Highly recommend!
Jennifer’ and family was awesome guests.. they left the log house as clean as they found it. Thks for the kind words in your review. We welcome them back at any time. We loved mom and DAd . They were a blast. But , I think he should mow the yard instead of her. Ha. I was amazed how they loved kayaking in muddy water due to the overnite storm. They were good at kayaking . Love to have them all back for a family reunion .
Everything about this house is amazing. The bedding is the most comfortable we have had in any rental. Jerry and Janice and extremely friendly and add special touches to the vacation. They meet us at the house at check in and showed us around the property, 163 acres, and told us about all the little secret places to fish, kayak, and swim. Truly a wonderful relaxing week. Thank you.
the Arnette’s were awesome friendly and outdoor loving kind of people. We love it when they like doing fun things. Thks for the kind words and thanks for keeping the log house so clean . We welcome them back anytime and I need the pic of Tashas smallmouth . Next time be Nathan. Ha.
Slice of Country Heaven
The little extra touches that Jerry and Janice provided made our stay at the relaxing Yellow Creek Retreat log house our best VRBO vacation ever! Jerry called us early in the afternoon of our upcoming arrival to coordinate meeting us at the house. Jerry and Janice's friendly personal tour sharing info about the origin of the wood in each room, the beautiful rustic decorations, and the stories behind hunting the impressive mounted animals made us feel welcomed as honored guests and new friends. They even provided worms in the Corn Crib frig. for the kiddo's fishing hole and offered for us to help ourselves to some of their tomatoes (My Mimi would have been proud of that batch of green 'maters I fried up!) Jerry phoned us once during our visit to check on how we were doing and if we needed anything. He even was ready to bring a new battery for the Mule if his hint to try starting it in neutral didn't work (it did!!!).
Three nights was not long enough to experience all of the adventures this heavenly place offers, but we left with hearts full of memories from these treasured days spent with our youngest son and his wife and two of our grandkids -- creek-stomping; chasing fireflies; swinging on the tree swing, web swing, porch swing, and hammock; eating leisurely meals on the back porch; playing games and doing a puzzle in the parlour; gathering around the firepit making hot dogs and S'mores.
Thank you, Jerry and Janice, for making your Country Paradise available to us and for your kind hospitality!!!
These were some of the finest guests we have ever had. Thanks for your kind words and for keeping the loghouse so clean and even cleaned the outside grill. Love to have y’all back even bring your Baylor flag back.. Look for it on Instagram.
Perfect place for small or large gathering
Outstanding! We wanted to spend fathers day in a place where dads could fish, kids could fish and all the ladies cook together and relax. We hiked trails, drove the beautiful property and had the best fishing experience! Jerry had everything we needed and more, didn't even have to bring poles, tackle or worms for the kids. Everything is rights here folks! Just bring your snacks and drinks. The kids and dads threw frisbees, played baseball, basketball then wore the swings and creek out until past dark! 3 days was not nearly enough! So much detail in the home and on the property to really make your experience the best. Cannot thank the owners enough for greeting us, explaining the history and making their hard work available for others to enjoy. A hard line propane grill and fire pit! How easy to cook and bonfire! Tankless water heater so our group never had to limit shower times! Art, antiques, artifacts! Beauty everywhere you look. I could go on forever.
Family weekend getaway
Yellow Creek Retreat was everything we wanted in a weekend getaway. It was such a relaxing place with lots of fun things to do. The cabin was amazing. It has many unique touches and was spotless clean. The pictures do not do it justice. The creek in front of the cabin was beautiful and the kids played there for hours. We loved catching lots of fish at the fishing hole. The swimming hole was just a short drive from the cabin and it was beautiful! The water is crystal clear and we really enjoyed kayaking. The owners were wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. If you love the outdoors then you won’t regret booking this rental and it’s a great place for kids. My 5 year old had tears in his eyes while driving away from the cabin. We hope to come back!

About Jerry crawford
We are retired bankers from Nashville.
Jerry crawford purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2014
Why Jerry crawford chose Vanleer
Old house was on the property when I bought it, so I moved it to save and restore. It is one of a kind with so much detail in finishing the home. Decorating it was a blast according to my wife. Watch out for the brown bear standing in the dogtrot.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Private 163 acres to explore. Joins a private 2000 acre game preserve . Visit old house site where the cisterns still intact with cold spring water running 24 hrs a day. Set in rocker on front porch with a glass of wine and chill out while sun goes down and watch kids play in the creek. Very serene.
