The space
The Watertree is nestled just inside a beautiful Tennessee woods full of cedar, oak and walnut trees, many of which grow out of the Karst limestone topography of the area! The Watertree is one of five tiny houses on the "Twig City" property all of which offer a fair degree of privacy and are close to Old Hickory Lake and many area shops, restaurants and attractions!

Note: The loft sleeping area is accessible by a ladder that is about 6 feet tall and accordingly you need to be advised that your use of the loft is at your own risk as part of this rental contract. Thanks! Jay

Other things to note
Info about Location, Distances to Nearby Restaurants, Attractions, Shops

1. Driving Directions – Traveling TO the Property: From Tennessee State Road 109 you will turn east on Academy Road and travel approximately 500 feet to the entrance. The property address is 2892 Academy Road, Lebanon, TN. After you turn onto Academy Road look for the second gravel driveway on the right, turn into the driveway, through the double gates and follow the driveway back to the Tiny House.
2. Traveling FROM the Property: The Property is located at the edge of Old Hickory Lake in Laguardo, Tennessee, at the intersection of State Road 109 and Academy Road (on Academy Road0.
3. ¼ Mile Walk to Old Hickory Lake rough shoreline. A very rough shoreline of Old Hickory Lake is accessible by foot on undeveloped walking trails that travel north to south on the Property OR what I recommend is to drive about a quarter mile over to Laguardo Recreation Area with a nice beach, picnic areas, restrooms, boat ramps, etc. (Exit the Property and turn left on Academy Road, then left on SR 109 and then make an immediate right into the park.)

4. Distances to Cities, Shops, Restaurants and Nashville. Nashville and surrounding areas are all within an easy and comfortable driving distance and are simple to get to. Twig City is located about 6 1/2 miles from Gallatin, Tennessee; 29 miles from downtown Nashville and 30 miles from Music Row; 24 miles to Nashville International Airport; 16 miles to the Nashville “eastside” city limits. Providence Marketplace is only 12 miles away in Mount Juliet. Mount Juliet is also home to hundreds of shops, restaurants and fun things to do. (Mount Juliet is also a stop for the Music City Star passenger train that runs all the way down to Broadway and 1st Avenue in downtown Nashville. Parking rates are high in Nashville and the train might be a fun and inexpensive option to consider for a trip downtown.)
5. Directions:
To Gallatin – exit Property by turning left out of driveway to SR 109, then turn right on 109 and Gallatin is located about 6 miles away.
To Lebanon – exit Property by turning left out of driveway to SR 109 then turn left on SR 109, 6 miles to SR 70 and then left on 70 about 7 miles to Lebanon.
To Mount Juliet - Exit Property by turning left out of driveway to SR 109, and then turn left on 109 and go about 6 miles to SR 70 (also known as “Lebanon Road”), then turn right on SR 70 and drive about 6 miles to Mount Juliet Road and then turn left on Mount Juliet Road which is “Main Street” in Mount Juliet, where many, many restaurants, shops and stores are located. (An alternative route to Mount Juliet is to take SR 109 south to where it intersects with Interstate 40 and then take I40 west 5 miles to the Mount Juliet exit, which is exit 226.)
To Nashville – Follow the directions to go to Mount Juliet by either SR 70 or I-40 but continue west to go directly to downtown Nashville. The SR 70 route is more scenic but more congested with traffic and it will deliver you to the “mouth of the downtown Broadway Avenue” part of Nashville. If you choose to travel I-40 it is typical interstate and you can exit at any number of Nashville exits.
Great local “Mom & Pop” restaurants: Cherokee Steakhouse is located at the marina about 4 miles to the north just off SR 109 and has excellent steaks at very reasonable prices. Big Al’s BBQ is located about 4 miles south on SR 109 and has excellent hickory smoked BBQ. Courtney’s Cafeteria is located in Mount Juliet, about 10 miles away and is a great “meat and three” cafeteria style place with reasonable prices. Chinese? I suggest China Moon for great tasting, great value Chinese carry out and to dine in try the Far East Buffet in Mount Juliet, an excellent Chinese buffet with a Mongolian BBQ grill. Mount Juliet also has just about every major franchise restaurant imaginable. Mexican? There are at least 10 Mexican restaurants in a 5 miles radius of Mount Juliet! Hickory Smoked BBQ. This is the BBQ capital of the South! Try Big Al's, Blue Moon BBQ in Gallatin or Lebanon or “BarBCutie” in Mount Juliet. Also, Martin's in Mount Juliet is excellent but a bit high priced.
6. Supermarkets, Drug Stores and Medical Facilities – The Academy Road Property is close to the cities of Gallatin, Mount Juliet and Lebanon, Tennessee. Each of these towns have major supermarkets, drug stores, doctors and hospitals/major medical facilities. To Gallatin – exit Property by turning left to SR 109; Turn right on 109 and Gallatin is located about 6 miles away. To Lebanon – exit Property by turning left to SR 109; Left on SR 109, 6 miles to SR 70; Left on 70 about 7 miles to Lebanon. To Mount Juliet - Exit Property by turning left to SR 109, turn left on 109 and go about 6 miles to SR 70; Turn right on SR 70 and drive about 6 miles to Mount Juliet Road; Turn left on Mount Juliet Road which is “Main Street” in Mount Juliet, where all restaurants, shops and stores are located.

September 9, 2017 Update: My property is in a rural - not isolated or remote -setting and there are various sounds you might hear at random times.......you might hear other people, pets, birds and animal wildlife, farm sounds, yee-haws, shouts of Go-Vols!, duck hunters off in the distance, boats, thunder, wind chimes, a plane flying overhead and yes random vehicles driving by or close by. My property is not in an isolated or remote area completely free of other humans, nature and associated noises. I have added this "legalese" to my listings attempting to "accurately reflect" what sounds a guest might hear during a stay. Geeeeeessshh! Thanks! Jay.......................................................................................................................... Note about property access, use and risk assumed by all guests: All guests agree to hold host harmless in the event of injury that might be sustained through use of the primitive trails, woods and grounds in general.

This is an old picture from years ago! Now I have a long beard, more wrinkles, even less hair on top, etc. :) I am modest but never argue with those who say I am "the world's 2nd most interesting man" he he he. (Sad to report that I have been lowered to 3rd most interesting in 2018. :( I am a real estate investor, guitarist, song writer, patent holding inventor, homeopathic/natural medicine researcher, artist, designer, author, humorist, philosopher, pilot and self taught "chef". I opened my first "business" at age 6 making potholders and selling them to the neighbor ladies in Willow Branch, Indiana. I have always been self employed and engaged in "labors of love" in my ventures. I studied business law in high school and in recent years but I am not a lawyer. I have successfully represented myself in various court proceedings, as well as at the Tennessee Supreme Court of Appeals. I enjoy BBQ'ing, and a few shots of Gray's Peak Small Batch Meyer Lemon vodka once in awhile and have been known to smoke a stogie or two. (A stogie is a cigar for those of you from Delbert, Indiana or Somerset, KY.) I have 4 grown children and at least 10 grandkids and have been single since '99. I live on my "Twig City Farm" where I have several tiny houses for you to choose from. My current projects include: 1. Working on Starstruck Farm. When complete it will be a beautiful 46 acre farm with pick your own fruits/veggies, bed and breakfast, entertainment, great food! 2. I am in the middle planning stages of FongLab. FongLab will be a small research and development campus that will perfect, patent, develop and market hundreds of concepts, ideas, inventions, treatments and products that I have worked on or envisioned over the years. 3. Planning and early development of my U.S. patent for the world's first "Vortex Racing League" facility. 4. Working on writing several books: The first is a booked titled "Beyond Flipping - The Power of Options". The second is a sci-fi efforts entitled "The Laughing Guy". The third is a true story account of my twelve year legal battle against multiple real estate sharks, entitled "David v. Goliaths". The fourth is another sci-fi effort entitled The Quell. Other than those and a few other projects, I am just a lazy bones. My Airbnb host philosophy about interactions with guests is "to give you space to enjoy your vacation, getaway or trip but at the same time be readily available if you need something!" Why do I have that philosophy? I am sure that you do not book my places to hang out with me but if you have an urge to "shake and howdy" please let me know, as I would love to meet you. I never intrude on your privacy and will not knock on your door unless there is some very good reason, and I am unable to contact you by phone, text or email. My helpers and I make every effort to leave you alone to enjoy yourselves. My life motto is, "Better to climb and fall than to never climb at all! My saying for the month of August 2018 is, "If you pick up a hammer, choose to cut diamonds." My advice to politicians is "Shut up and fix the potholes!"
