About Jack or Lenore

We have traveled all over and enjoy hosting other travelers at our 'Home Away From Home'. When we first saw this home...all we wanted to do was stay and never return to the stresses of life. Alas, we couldn't escape to the Cabin as often as we planned, so the next best thing was to make it available to those discerning Vacation Home Rental travelers that know the secret of comfortable hospitality and surroundings at prices and an environment superior to city-centered small Hotel Rooms. ENJOY!

Jack or Lenore purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Jack or Lenore chose Castalian Springs

Our Home is in the perfect location for those who want to enjoy: the 'Gatlinburg Cabin' feeling without driving all the way to East Tennessee, being close enough to participate in Nashville's BIG-CITY 'sights and Sounds' and, enjoy local festivals and visiting wonderful historic sites and activities just minutes from our Home. Why rent just one room when you can get a whole Home?

What makes this cabin unique

When we first pulled into the driveway and saw this home it felt to us like we had just arrived at a 'vacation destination'. The setting, the trees, the lake, the cabin and the scent of pine trees were welcoming and familiar. Our home offers a relaxing atmosphere, beautiful lake, the freedom of 'doing nothing' (and not feeling guilty about it) and plenty of things to see in the area. Forget about your 'rushed life', the job, tons of 'appointments' to keep. Come and reconnect with your family and friends, enjoy the awesome sunrises/sunsets and feel the 'pressures' just melt away.Rent both cabins for your large 'family gathering' needs. Both homes combined will 'sleep' up to 10 people.

Wedding weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much! We took my 3 year old grandson fishing for the first time and he caught a large catfish as well as a couple sun fish. It was very close to my daughter’s wedding venue and allowed the family to relax and enjoy themselves. The owners called to make sure we had what we needed and to offer suggestions for dinner; their hospitality was appreciated by all. Thank you Jack and Lenore!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our Home for your recent stay. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and took the opportunity to really relax and even go fishing. "WOW" is all I can say about your grandson's first fishing experience and the lasting memory it will bring. We hope it wont be his last "fishing expedition" at our lovely lake cabin . We hope to be of service in the future. All the best !

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely and comfortable with all the amenities. Particularly enjoyed the rural setting, and the mornings and evenings on the porch watching and listening to nature. Would like to have had access to laundry facilities, but that was not included due to the length of our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed our quiet country cabin at the lake. I am sorry for the misunderstanding about use of the convenient W/D that we provide for our Guests. We advertise its availability in our site in the amenity section. You mentioned in our conversation today that "you planned to give me a call about the w/d but decided that it was ok as you didn't really need it." I wish you had called.

Perfect location for our adventures

  • 4 of 5

We had a girls trip for a graduation party in Lebanon. Only trouble we had was trying to get service at any of the nearby marinas. The House was perfect for our needs. Room for six women. Jack and Lenore were great to work with.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you; enjoyed our home, that you six ladies were comfortable and that our home was perfect for your needs. I am not sure what your needs were at the nearby marinas and wish you had asked me about them as I could have been of help. All the best.

We were disappointed that the place wasn't better kept. We should have been charged half of what we paid. There was no grill available as indicated (and we had purchased groceries for cooking out) and it appeared that the outdoor areas had not been touched all winter (i.e. the horseshoe area was neglected (horseshoes buried in year old sand/dirt) and the outdoor furniture wasn't well maintained). The inside was clean but it didn't meet our expectations based on photos we reviewed. We thought we could fish (no poles were available) and enjoy the outdoors. The backyard is a steep hill so couldn't play games (or have an Easter Egg hunt) in the grass. Overall we were very disappointed and wouldn't return. For the price we paid we expected more. The uber drive to downtown Nashville was almost 45 minutes.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for choosing our home for your March stay. We were glad you were able to take advantage of our deeply-discounted March special Rental pricing offer at our lovely home. However, We regret that your expectations were not realized. Tennessee Weather can be very tricky during this time of year and we did receive alot of rain and chilly weather. Adverse weather delayed our groundskeeper from sprucing up the outside to our high standards. We advertised a grill but unfortunately had to quickly retire it. I am sorry that we were not able to deliver its replacement to you in time. We offer a great fishing cove at the lake, so I was also surprised to learn that you forgot to bring fishing poles as you knew that we do not provide them as part of the rental. We hope you caught lots of fish and enjoyed your time at our home in spite of your disappointments. Our cabins sits on two lovely acres. The back yard is not steep. It consists of a gently rising hill. And it also has a nice flat and very Large grassy area by the Apple trees which families before you have utilized and enjoyed. We are surprised that you did not discover the large play area.

Lovely location, a few quirks

  • 4 of 5

Lenore and Jack welcomed us via text and made sure we got in ok. Everything was just as described and pictured inside. The rooms were comfortable with plenty of space for our things. Comfortable beds and a cozy kitchen with nice appliances and all the extra items we needed (pots, pans, utensils, coffeemaker, etc.) We also loved the games that were available in the home. There was some confusion about wifi as info I received after reserving mentioned a wifi password. There is no wifi- this does match the initial listing. One strange thing we noticed was that the windows are treated in a way that one can not see out of them at night. We would have liked to have been able to see out- especially when there were severe storms one night. Severe weather info would be helpful to have in the welcome book (we had limited cell coverage and did not find any local weather channels). Please be advised that the owners prefer that renters do not consume alcohol while staying at the property. Overall, this is a great place to stay for a peaceful getaway with family or friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing our home and for your great review. We love to hear words such as "great place to stay", "peaceful getaway" and we will return. Its Music to our ears and indicates that our guests enjoyed the home. We go to great lengths to make our guests feel comfortable. We even installed see through shaded insulation and sunblock screen on our windows to make our guests more comfortable. in fact, you can see in and out of the windows without any problem. I am also a bit confused about your statement that we do not prefer alcoholic beverages in our home. We have no such restrictions. Perhaps that was at another home you stayed in. We also offer DISH satellite service which has the "Weather Channel" and all of the local news/Weather stations. We wished that you did not have rain during your stay. Hopefully, the next time you visit the weather will cooperate better. All the best.
