An Amazing and Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. It was a great place to gather with our sons and grandchildren. We also renewed our vows while staying there. Beautiful setting with creek running behind the cabin. What a wonderful cabin and was so peaceful. Not but a few miles from town but far away enough to have that beautiful, quiet, cabin feel. This property was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay great. We will sure make plans to stay here again. Thanks for a great weekend Steve!

This was our first family get together in years and we all can't wait to go back next year !! The Slayden cabin was so accommodating for all 8 of us ,with 2 bathrooms and plenty of lounge space. The outside was even better with the beautiful scenery ,peaceful atmosphere( and virtually no bugs) you got to enjoy the outdoors as much as the indoors !!!! We highly recommend Old Hickory Lake Cabins

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town looking for property so we can relocate to the area. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the owner is also a realtor! Not only did Steve take care of everything we needed during our stay at his cabin, but he is always very responsive to my real estate needs! The cabin was also very roomy and was perfect for our needs. I was initially a little concerned about the lack of washer and dryer, but it was not a problem at all. The cabin is well stocked with towels and also had everything we needed in the kitchen. I feel pretty sure that we will be back again one day. Thanks for everything Steve!

Relaxing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful relaxing property. Our two boys enjoyed the easy access to the lake and all the games inside. It was a nice relaxing place to stay while we were in Nashville for an archery tournament. Great alternative to a hotel in the busy city! We would definitely book again if we were in the area. Thanks!

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us. We had a great time in this house. Everything we needed was right there. As one of the 5 ladies, I even noticed that there was a " make up cleansing tissues" for the ladies in both bathrooms. What a thoughtful detail.

Steve was so friendly and helpful. We all did enjoy meeting him.

I would definitely recommend this charming house right by the river to everyone who is looking for a home away from home. Even in the winter time... drinking the first morning coffee right by the river, enjoying the silence was priceless!

Thank you !

The detail of make up cleaning tissues is my wife and we could not do this without both of us enjoying and trying to make your stay a memory that you would like to come back to. Thank you once again
