About David Edsall

I wish to introduce myself to you. My name is David Edsall. My wife, Joan, and I built this cabin in 1983 as a 2nd residence. I founded some very popular central Tennessee weekly publications in 1971. In 1995 I sold this business but retained this, our 2nd residence. I currently live in Indianapolis however I still have grandchildren (all grown up) living in the Nashville area. The operation of this vacation home is now a family affair. We are all Christian people and would like to share this property with anyone who will respect it and our neighbors as we do. A member of my family will greet you on your arrival and see that you are comfortable and all your questions answered. If any problems should arise during your stay, we are just a phone call away and will respond immediately. I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Why David Edsall chose Tennessee

When we first came to the Nashville area we lived on our houseboat. We have always been boating people. Soon we needed a facility to help us be more relaxed and to accommodate our key employees for special events and as a perk for a job well done. We loved the water, so the Cumberland River, that flows past the cabin, was perfect when we wanted to take vacations by water. From this cabin the world was our oyster. Going upstream we would come to the beginning of the river; about 200 miles away. Going downstream we would come to the Ohio River and then the Mississippi River then the Gulf of Mexico then the Atlantic Ocean; well you get the picture. Come share the adventure of our cabin, our hospitality and our quiet surroundings. Unfortunately we cannot allow access to the lake or the boat dock from this property due to an Army Corp of Engineers ruling. However, the view is great.

What makes this cabin unique

The Cabin is designed for family and friends use in mind. It is sectioned off so groups of family or friends can make their own gathering within the main gathering but still within eye sight of the others. After the days activities everyone can retire to the privacy of a bedroom. Some may choose the bonus room where even sleeping is fun.

Great family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. House is well maintained with plenty of space. The large room above the garage can get pretty warm though. No complaints.

Family Reunion Venue

  • 5 of 5

Our family held our annual reunion at the cabin in July. We came to Mt. Juliet from New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida and a few from Tennessee. It was great to all be together in one location, instead of spread out in several different hotels. The cabin had plenty of cookware for us to prepare meals, the washer and dryer was a plus and the theater was a huge hit for the kids. The large room above the garage that had several beds was perfect for the young adults and a few small children to stay comfortably. The only negative about this location was that it was about 30-miinutes from the grocery if you forgot something it took over an hour to get to the store and back. The neighbors from across the lake came to visit and they were SUPER nice. We sat out on the deck and visited with them for a little while.

If you have a large group getting together this is definitely a great choice. The owner, David and his grandson, John are really great to work with.

Great for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer my entire family gets together for about a week. We come from far and wide and need a large house that can accommodate 15+ including an increasing number of young children. This place really fit the bill!

There are several common areas, the back room being the best. Very spacious with windows on 3 sides. The babies wake early and their parents can take them in there allowing the rest of the group to sleep in. Don't be concerned about having to stay above the garage. The space is huge, it has a bathroom with shower and a tv with a seating area...very nice.

The neighborhood is lovely and you are not too far from the airport and the city of Nashville. There is plenty of parking. The deck is nice but the week we were there was hot so we only used it a couple of times.

The only drawback is the kitchen. The size limits what you can cook for the number of people the house holds. We solved it by getting takeout most nights. Pizza, barbecue, etc.

We tend to rotate where we stay each summer but we all agreed that this house served our needs and we would be happy to return.

Really Good with Few Problems

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice place for a large family weekend getaway. The interior of the house was unique with nice wood finish, although not a very modern look, had a welcoming, warm feel. The high ceilings in the living room and back room were nice and made it feel fun. The view out the back towards the lake was enjoyable.

The sleeping area above the garage worked very well for us. The adults that wanted to sleep in a little later weren't disturbed by the kids waking up early. It was magical for the kids to have their own "room" with the curtain partitions.

No yard to play in, but the street was quiet, and we were able to take walks.

The spiral staircases going up the stairs to the air hockey and billiard tables added to house's unique qualities. The air hockey and pool tables were one of the highlights for the kids. The stairs had a gate which made us rest easier with the young children running around. They do have an entrance to the bottom floor, which made it much more convenient to bring luggage in and out - the spiral staircase proved to be challenging in that regard!

Most of our food was prepped beforehand, which was incredibly helpful. The kitchen is smaller, and doing meals entirely from scratch for 20 people would have been a little challenging.

We were disappointed to have not been greeted upon arrival so that we could have had someone to let us into the house. We had to wait outside, locked out, for about 30 minutes before we were able to acquire the code we needed to access the house. We had tried to get in touch with the contacts provided beforehand (as instructed in our letter we received before coming) but no one had returned our calls. We arrived on time and were expecting that someone would be there with instructions on how to operate the home theater system and also to know where the extra silverware, paper towels, hand soap, and dishes were located.

The downstairs bathroom has to be handled with care. There's a sign indicating how to flush the toilet properly to prevent it from clogging, which was negative to us.

Overall, everyone enjoyed their weekend getaway. We played games, visited, ate wonderful food, relaxed, and spent some quality time together, without ever feeling like there wasn't enough space for all 20 of us. The bedrooms are on the small side, but we weren't spending much time in them. There were nice blow up queen-size mattresses to offer extra sleeping space, and the above-garage room was huge.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Alot bigger than it looks..... very nice. Definitely enough room for 3 people. Would be nice for a big family reunion or big group of friends. A little far away from everything but nothing too bad. Grab all your groceries before heading out there. Nearest store (walmart) is about 20 min or so. Definitely recommend this rental.

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Great house for our purposes! However, we were not able to access the lake and that was disappointing. Being able to fish and be near the water would have been better. Overall, it was a lot of fun.

Nashville is the music capital of the world. From the cabin you are 30 minutes or less from about everything. Opry Mills is a world class shopping mall. The Grand Ole Opry for country music entertainment and the country music's STAR gazing. Next door is The Opryland Hotel. This is a must visit if only to see the amazing Atriums.
