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.

Lovely home... perfect for a girls reunion getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us girls from all points of the US decided to get together for a long overdue girls reunion weekend. We picked Nashville as none of us had been before and it was midpoint for us all. I started looking for a place for us and found Jack and Lenore Browns' lovely property. It exceeded all our expectations! It was lovely inside, truly beautiful...the view of the lake across the street, easy distance to drive into Nashville. We visited the Opryland Hotel which was amazing and spent a day in Franklin. It was so nice when we were done sightseeing to come back to our beautiful borrowed home and relax. We had campfires every night and really truly enjoyed our time together at this beautiful property. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone. The owners were also very we did have one small issue with hotwater the first day...and it was very quickly rectified. Thanks so much to the Browns' for a very nice weekend home!

Very nice country home footsteps from a lake.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in this home. Two bedrooms up and one down gave the 4 of us our personal space. Kitchen was well equipped and living room furniture was more than comfy. The house is 40 minutes from downtown, but it was an easy drive. When we left the house, we were prepared for the day. So many wonderful sites and sounds in the Nashville area. Jack and Lenore were great to work with! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Donna, we are so glad you chose our home. Many of our guests say this quiet "get away home" is the best of both worlds. Because it's close to Nashville they can enjoy the city for the day. And then they can come back to the country to peace and quiet. We hope ya'll come back and see us again!

Great Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

I had planned my Daddy's 80th birthday party for more than 6 months, booked the stay at Eagle Cove with Jack and Lenore, and they were very good at staying connected with planning our trip. When we arrived, there was an unexpected water line break at the house. they really could have told us good luck and sent us on our way to have to fend for ourselves on Labor Day Weekend. They proceeded to to repair the break, clean up the water and had the property immaculate when we were able to get in. The weekend accommodated my large family and being right on the Lake made for great memories. My entire family loved the relaxing atmosphere and all agreed it was the BEST family weekend vacation we have had in a long time! Awesome location and very private. The horseshoes and large family areas made for some of the best memories we could have hoped for! Would definitely return! Thank you Jack for making this trip happen for me and my family!

Owner's Response: You folks are amazing!. You handled the unfortunate surprise of the water line break with such peace, understanding and flexibility. So we rate youall with our 10 STAR rating ! I was glad that it was repaired and cleaned up quickly...only delaying occupancy by a few hours or so...But it was still a "nail-biter" for sure. We welcome you at any of our vacation homes...You are the best. Come visit us soon.

Our stay was delightful. Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

We felt welcome the minute we stepped in to the inviting space, and tried to watch the deer grazing on the hill and the sunset over the lake at the same time. Gorgeous views in a very comfortable and lovely home.

Uncooperative owner

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here July 6 -13, 2017. On arrival the A/C unit did not work and was not fixed when we left. When we attempted to use the dryer, it did not work. It was only usable the day before we were leaving. Then we had a problem with the washer when the drain water backed up onto the floor and also there was septic backup causing an odor.. With each event the owner was notified immediately, but we finally realized he was unwilling to invest in making the repairs. We felt he did not have an interest in keeping the house in working order, when we discussed with him issues such as the outdoor ceiling fan not working and wall switches that did not turn on lights.

Owner's Response: This guests most egregious statements are so shockingly devoid of reality that I have no choice but to reply. What is so unbelievable about these false allegations is that 1 day before checkout our primary guest and another adult family member personally told me that they "enjoyed the home" and had a "very pleasant visit" . They had absolutely NO COMPLAINTS. So it was with great surprise to receive this review.... TRUTH: Our home and hospitality business is a serious financial investment. We take care of our investments. For this guest to accuse us of not caring or not keeping the home in good working order is just not true and very repulsive. TRUTH: Our lovely Five Star home has been diligently operated by my wife and I for 8 years. We are very cooperative with all Guests and go "the extra mile" to ensure their stay is pleasant. Please read some of the other Reviews below as this present review makes no sense at all. We would not be in business today or even have any VRBO Listings if we were "uncooperative" or "unresponsive" In addition to our own personal service responsiveness, our Home is protected with a full Home Service Warranty Policy which provides a skilled Technician for any service related needs and are on-call 24/7. TRUTH: I set our entire home A/C system to a breezy 72 degrees to welcome our guests on check-in day. When I visited the property later, the A/C System continued to operate at peak cooling efficiency and the entire home was very cool. There was/is nothing wrong with our home A/C. And none of our Guests complained. TRUTH: Our modern front-load Clothes Washer did not and does Not leak nor did it back up. A few days after arrival, the washer was used. Guest opened the sealed door after starting the wash and a very very SMALL normal amount of water (trapped in the door seal), leaked onto the floor. Our Guest admitted she was not familiar with front-load washers. So her statements are exaggerated. I assure you The Washer worked/works perfectly. TRUTH: Things happen: Our clothes dryer blew an internal fuse. I was called in the late afternoon.In spite of the late call, I and the Appliance tech.was at the home very early the next morning and the unit was fully operational operating WITHIN an hour. Guests seemed Happy and thanked me for the prompt response. I am still surprised by the level of unfounded and untruthful accusations in spite of our prompt professional service and beautiful home. Sincerely .

Fantastic Lake Front Property

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and it was FANTASTIC. Jack & Lenore were a pleasure to work with and they keep this property pristine. It is a great place to enjoy a little mother nature at its finest. We saw deer in the morning from the back deck while sipping our coffee. The lake is absolutely beautiful from the huge front deck. I would definitely recommend you visit this property !!!!
