About Brandon and Jen Lucy

We love the lake! Jen's extended family had a lake house growing up and it has always been a dream of ours to have a place for our family to enjoy during the summer! We love swimming, fishing, boating, skiing, wake boarding, wake surfing, and watching the water! We love what the lake means: play & relax!

Brandon and Jen Lucy purchased this house in 2015

Why Brandon and Jen Lucy chose Estill Springs

This property was perfect for us! We loved the separate guest cottage (Canary's Nest) for our parents or family and friends with small children to enjoy while we were there. It is very close to town and to the boat launch so we wouldn't be spending our time on the road, we'd be spending it on the water!

What makes this house unique

We love the private cove for easy swimming and double boat slip with jet ski ramps! The view from the screened in porch is amazing! And the trees keep everything shaded so you are still cool when you are on the deck! We have a bunk room for the kids and nice size beds for the adults! Well appointed kitchen and an easy driveway to get in and out of with a boat. Fantastic deck space for the day time and great entertainment center for late night movies!

Wonderful place for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from Home Away several times and this is our favorite! Plenty of space for a large group, quiet location, great place for swimming since it is in a cove so you don't have to worry about boaters. Also, friendly neighbors across the water that invited us to use their dock and ladders if needed. Only problem was our stay wasn't long enough. Thank you to the Lucy's for sharing their Lake home!!

Owner's Response: Awesome! So glad you all enjoyed our property and are considering returning. It really is a great spot to enjoy swimming and your own watercraft if you bring them.

Beautiful house and just right for our family

  • 5 of 5

So we stumbled upon this place through an internet search to find a comfortable and affordable place for our family to stay for my daughter's graduation from Sewanee, University of the South. You're never really sure if the pictures show what it really looks like. But it was even better than the pictures! Very clean and neat. Obviously, it has been recently remodeled and updated. The beds was very comfortable. It was just the perfect size for our extended family of 10 people. The best part was the screened in porch and being able to sit and see the water and just enjoy the outdoors. The only downside (but maybe not for everyone) was the distance to anything like restaurants and grocery stores. Also, it was a pretty far drive (30 minutes) to Sewanee. Other than that, I would highly recommend it for others!

Cozy house on the water!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakehouse on Canary was the perfect place for our group of young ladies to retreat to! The house itself has been renovated in a way that you can tell the owners pay attention to detail. And that right there says a lot about how the owners maintain their rental. The house and The Nest are perfect to sleep 10 adults comfortably. And the screened in porch was wonderful to sit and listen to the rain with coffee in hand, spending time with friends. There is plenty of parking if you're not able to all carpool together. And being on the cul de sac makes it so private and peaceful! We were able to get our groceries for the weekend easily at the Walmart in Estill Springs. It was only a 10ish minute drive. Thank you Brandon and Jen for providing a wonderful retreat for us! As long as our group doesn't get much bigger, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! We are so grateful that our place met the needs of your group. You all were a pleasure to deal with and while we certainly hope a church group grows, it wouldn't be bad if you all are able to stay again!

Good Location, Good Accommodations, TV Limited

  • 4 of 5

Family Christmas get together. Good location for us and good layout, hence 4 stars. However some problems discussed below. Reasonably close to grocery stores and shopping. December and Lake Level was extremely low so lake activities were not a consideration. Has dirt road last 100 plus yards. Not a problem in rain but muddy. House is on small fork off main lake with limited view. Rooms, layout, and small out house provide plenty of room for large group. The small house is rustic and has rustic smell. Family room is converted garage with less than ideal ventilation. We had a problem with owners food and supplies being in different places and then mixed with our food and supplies in pantry and laundry closet. Difficult for non-cooks and children to know what to use. Recommend owner keep items not for renter use in separate locked closet. Plenty of cooking utensils in various places but very disorganized. TV was a problem. TV's in small house and master are wifi streaming only. The problem is the 5G network used by main TV is not available on guest network and guest network was too slow to stream. We have apple TV and know how to stream and mirror but were never able to stream in MBR. Probably not a problem if you have a small group. Instructions for use of no-charge streaming on main TV was confusing. There is one garbage can so if you create lots of trash, you will need to take trash to Estill Springs recycling/trash center. Probably same for all properties in this area. The list of rules for renters should be provided before renting. At least add enough information on listing to know about TV's, trash, use of owners supplies, (sugar on counter, owners aluminum foil in pantry), etc. We would have stayed elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We certainly hope you all experienced a memorable Christmas at the Lakehouse on Canary! We are disappointed that we didn’t meet your 5* expectations, as with all previous guests. We would like to address some comments that might misinform future guests. Canary Lane is a gravel road and will have a few puddles after significant rainfall; it is not a “dirt” road. The house is on a cove as stated in the listing and associated pictures. This protects our swimming area/dock from constant boat traffic “rollers.” Upon arriving for inspection, no smell was noticed in the Nest cottage or house, but we will continue to investigate. We feel the “rustic” connotation is out of place; our pictures capture the finish of the dwellings. The great room is serviced by the central HVAC unit, and a small space heater is provided for guests’ comfort level. Owners’ items in the pantry are clearly marked with labels, with vacant shelving left for guests. We feel this better serves our guests rather than locking the entire pantry forcing guests to lose this storage. Trash-bags, detergent, and items in the laundry closet are provided under the honor policy and are there in case guests need these items. Foil is provided if guests want to line the cookie sheets, sugar is provided along with coffee for guests to enjoy! We were able to resolve the master BR TV connectivity within 10 mins upon next arrival. The Nest TV had no issues upon our arrival. We are disappointed we were not contacted to try and remedy your issues, as the BR TV simply needed to connect to the correct network. We do apologize that you encountered issues but there is WIFI--ac throughout the house and WIFI-n to the Nest. We are reviewing our guest instructions for clarity on TV streaming. We do believe the provided TV services are correctly represented in the listing. A 45+ gallon trash can is provided with lid to hold guest trash. We only ask that excess of this amount to be disposed of by guests. Directions/hours for two convenience centers each less than 10 minutes away are provided. We chose not to have private trash service and have to pass this expense on to our guests. We want future guests to know we can be contacted during their stay to remedy any issues. We were disappointed not have this opportunity for these guests. We are happy to provide our detailed instructions before booking if requested. Thank You!

Our stay at the Lake House on Canary

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lake house for a long weekend. We used both the home and the nest. We loved everything about the home and property. The use of space is accommodating for both small and large groups! We hope to stay again when the weather is warmer so that we can enjoy the outside of the property and the lake. Advice for future guests, check the trash when you get there and make arrangements should you not be able to use the receptacle provided. The owners were more than generous for the minor issue we had getting our trash taken care of (thank you!).

Owner's Response: Thanks Mallory -- the best compliments we can get is that people are willing to return and we certainly welcome you all when the lake is warm! The trash issue was due to a misunderstanding with our new cleaner and shouldn't occur again.

Car: necessary

Fantastic Location for quick access to Rock Creek Public Boat Launch and very convenient to Winchester and Tullahoma for things like groceries and restaurants. Just 10 quick minutes to the famous Estill Springs Montana Drive-In! On the Nashville side of the Lake so it saves 20-30 minutes drive time! Our place is actually on the cove at the end of Canary Lane when looking at the map-view.....just drive until you run into water!
