About Randy Wellman

We live in Collierville, TN. I work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and my wife works at Baptist Memorial Hospital. I'm originally from the north but like southern living much better as does my wife, Kelly, who grew up in this area. We recently became empty nesters but loving the new lifestyle change.

Randy Wellman purchased this house in 2011

Why Randy Wellman chose Waterloo

Waterloo is a place that grows on you. We have been going there for over 20 years yet continue to discover more reasons to return. That's why we finally decided to build a vacation house there a few years ago. Not only is it a beautiful area of the country and a fun place for family vacations, but it is a wonderful community where people are friendly, considerate,and helpful. Likewise, it is a place where you can enjoy your privacy in a very tranquil setting, let your hair down, and truly relax. And, of course, if you like the water, then Waterloo is the place to be. In just a few minutes, you can be playing, fishing, or just cruising down the river for miles, with no hassles whatsoever.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional sightseeing both on and off the lake. Bring your own boat or rent one from local marina.

peaceful, beautiful, and refreshing !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful. The floorplan is one that will always stand out to me and my friends. We only had 6 couples, but really had more than enough room if everyone would have brought their children. I can only imagine how much fun it would be in the spring and summer with all the fun stuff to do outside. WILL DEFINITELY be booking a summer visit before it gets booked up! Not only to mention the awesome amenities, but the owners are beyond accommodating and on top of making sure your stay is spectacular and memorable. Made New Years one to not forget!

Beautiful Escape

  • 5 of 5

My entire family had a great time and keep asking me when we are going back. There were no complaints from anyone. Pleasing all of the members of my family (especially 3 teenage girls) is a difficult task. You can have it all here. No matter if it is rest and relaxation that you are looking for, or adventure and hiking, or fishing and boating, it is all available here. Randy and Kelly are also very welcoming and helpful.

We cannot wait for our next visit!!!!

Spacious and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here hosting a few groups of customers on business meetings. House was clean and in great shape when we arrived, Randy was extremely easy to work with, and house was equipped well with cooking items. Definitely will be coming back in the future!

Paradise is the correct address!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. The owners thought of everything. We rent quite frequently for our vacations and this is one of the best if not the best we have ever rented. The only regret is that we were not here long enough to enjoy all that the place had to offer. You can not see how beautiful this place if from the pictures, you will need to experience it first hand.

Great Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Eight friends ran away for the weekend to this beautiful "hidden" gem. This house is just like the pictures and these owners are super. Mr. Wellman even unlocked the door and turned on the lights for us since we were arriving quite late. Every detail has been paid attention to, even providing a way for you to "buy" ice there at the house and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee from their Keurig. You are definitely off the beaten path as far as restaurants and shopping, but neighbors are close. Pay close attention to owners directions since finding this place can be tricky. Yes, you really do drive through a graveyard. There's lots of outside fun to be had if you have good knees and enjoy a climb back to the house. There is a stairway, but not for the fainthearted. Our only disappointment was that we assumed from the pictures online that we would be able to enjoy the water's view from the house as well as the fire pit. You only catch a glimpse of the water through the trees and the fire pit is at the bottom of the hill, requiring those good knees and a climb back to house unless you want to use your car. Wasn't a big deal, we just assumed wrong. Only one bed on main floor, so be prepared to climb stairs either up or down. Huge comfortable back porch with a swing and where we spent most of our time. Book it! You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time and enjoyed your stay. And yes one of the features of the house which we find almost everyone appreciates Is that there is plenty of room to roam, but agree not necessarily for those who prefer more of the conveniences of city living where everything is a few steps away.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very nice, helpful, friendly, want to make your stay one you will remember and talk about, kind of people. This home is truly a home away from home. Everything you would have in your home they have put in this home so that you will feel right at home. It's big, spacious and tastefully decorated home. Because I was a tad bit confused as to how the house lays out I am going to share this as I feel it will be helpful. You come in on the main level which has your master bedroom with full bath, nice big separate shower and separate soak tub, living room, kitchen, half a bath, dinning area with table for 8, on the other side of the kitchen there is a dinning area with seating for 4. This main level there is also the wrap around porch that you will enjoy sitting and eating out on. If you head upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with one full bath in the hall. If you head downstairs there are 2 bedrooms with one full bath a living room and a kitchen with a small room for recreation and exercise. You can enter the house from the main level and the downstairs level. It's a great house, great location away from it all and great owners. I would highly recommend this house for you vacation needs!!! I would give this house 5 stars! I do have just one little suggestion. It would be nice to have the downstairs kitchen stocked the same as the upstairs kitchen

Owner's Response: Great description of floor layout. Glad you all had a nice visit. Good suggestion on stocking 2nd kitchen more. I think one thing that has occurred over time is that some from the second kitchen migrated to the main kitchen, but we can purchase more overall for both just to make sure there will be plenty for very large groups.
