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
There is a two-night lodging minimum for weekends (Friday/Saturday) and holidays. There is a three-night lodging minimum for the Harbor Cottages and the Salt Box Lake Homes. If a room remains available on the Wednesday before the weekend, single night reservations may be made by calling the concierge at 931-653-4360.
Yes! Bring your four-legged family members to Cordell Hull Lake so they can play too. There are several designated walking areas around the 14-acre Wildwood campus along with complimentary pet waste bag dispensers. (please pick up after your pet) Up to two pets are welcome in the following accommodations:
Lakeside Cabins | Tiny Village Cabins | Lodge | Airstream Village
There is a small fee per pet and we do require proper vaccinations. You can contact our concierge at 931-653-4360 to learn more and to make a reservation for you and your fur babies too.
YES! It has taken us some time to get all the boosters and antennas working properly, but you should find highspeed access in all our accommodations and most of the campus. Verizon cell service is still limited in the area and most guests use wifi calling instead, but there is a cell extender in the Holston Cafe’ and Lakeside Restaurant that gives you four bars if needed. The town of Granville also has the same Verizon booster too.
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.
Rental boat cancellations due to bad weather are at the discretion of the safety team and the dock manager. If the weather is not suitable for rental the customer will not be charged and is encouraged to make a future reservation.
If the customer cancels a reservation within 24 hours due to their perception of the weather forecast and without being notified by Wildwood, they will be charged a $100 cancellation fee though this can be applied to a future rental within the same calendar year.
All other (non-weather) Cancelations: To avoid a $100 cancellation fee the customer must provide a 72 hour notice.
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
Who could say no to that? They just love the wind in their nose. There is a $50 non-refundable charge per four-legged family member (2 max), however, pets are only permitted on our fun double-decker pontoon. When you call to make a reservation, just ask for a pet-friendly boat.
Every Friday and Saturday evening there is live music at the Lakeside Restaurant or on the grounds at Wildwood. On Friday’s a little karaoke fun gets mixed in. Take a look at our Entertainment Calendar. Every second Saturday of the month throughout the summer we host a special night of music featuring some of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters in the industry. https://wildwoodresorttn.com/newbird-on-the-water/ .
(The bar stays open an hour later every evening)
Dining is all first come first serve except for groups of 10 more.
The Holston Cabin Cafe’ and Concierge is open 7 days a week.
