Hold on.. this list could get quite long 🙂
Rent a pontoon, play bocce ball on our new court, savor an evening fire at one of our pits, fire up a charcoal grill, play horseshoes up in the Woods, start up a game of ping pong by the pergola, we have corn hole, tetherball, and other yard games, rent a canoe, kayak or paddleboard, go fishing off the boardwalk, there’s live music every Friday and Saturday night, have a professional massage, sign up for a sunset pontoon cruise or one of other charted pontoon boat excursions….. and that is just here at Wildwood. If you want to meander down the road – you’ll have to visit Historic Granville and if you want to keep on going along our country roads and discover some more adventures – here’s a page to stimulate your imagination.
Well….. actually you can 🙂 Our harbor cottages and saltbox lake homes are for sale. You can choose to keep it all to yourself, family and friends, or partner with Wildwood and let us put it in our rental system for the days you are not here. We’d love to talk with you more about the possibilities. Contact John Deane for more information 615-948-2705
Well almost. We are still putting the final touches on it. All the amenities with the exception of the Saltbox Lake House get coverage with 10-12 mbps download and 8-10 mbps upload. If you are staying at the lake house and need to get connected for a while, there are plenty of tables, chairs, decks and cozy places around the main part of the campus for you to sit and plug in if needed.
We are off the beaten path and WE LOVE IT and there is just one bar of verizon signal that makes it over the hills and down to the marina but we have a booster!! If you need to connect via cell/verizon, just come around the Holston Cafe’ or Lakeside Restaurant and you’ll have 4 bars. If you are out on the water, please keep the lack of cell service in mind.
We are cruising up the Cumberland River from Nashville heading to Wildwood. Is there anything we should know?
There are couple things to keep in mind. You’ll require a lock through the Cordell Hull Lock and Dam, please note that an advance reservation is required. Call the Cordell Hull Lock Dockmaster at (615) 735-1040 to schedule. The minimum approach depth is 15′ and the minimum channel depth is 40′. You can reach us via VHF Ch 16. Give us a call via VHF or (931) 653-4360 and let us know you are on the way so we can have someone ready to assist you. Our dock is full service with gas, diesel, pump-out, water and wifi. Hopefully, you can stay a night or two with us. Check-in at the ship store to arrange for overnight docking.
Yes and No. There is no fee to use the ramp, but there is a small fee to use the 32 boat parking spaces. If you are a guest of Wildwood, this fee is included with your stay. If you aren’t an overnight guest and want to park your boat trailer, please visit the concierge desk and purchase either a $5 sticker good for the day or purchase a yearly pass for $50.
If you are renting one of our pontoons with a 150HP motor, at 3/4 throttle it will take about 30 minutes, but count on an hour…. because you’ll have to stop to photograph an eagle or jump in the water in one of the coves to cool off. It’s easy to get there, but we have maps of the river/lake with channel markers that we’ll give you when you head out.
Sure do. This section of the Cumberland River/Cordell Hull Lake is filled with great catches. The Walmart in Carthage is easiest stop on your way in if you want to pick up a 1-3 day license. You can also purchase and print them online via https://license.gooutdoorstennessee.com/Licensing/CustomerLookup.aspx
Every Friday and Saturday evening there is live music at the Lakeside Restaurant. On Friday’s a little karaoke fun gets mixed in. You can see our entertainment calendar via https://wildwoodresorttn.com/wildwood-events/ Every second Saturday of the month throughout the summer we host a special night of music featuring some of most acclaimed singer/songwriters in the industry. https://wildwoodresorttn.com/newbird-on-the-water/
