About Debbie & Rick
After nearly 40 years as contractors, we retired and moved to TN. But we are an active couple who still enjoys digging into a good project. Remodeling and renovating real estate is our passion. Our home is conveniently perched between our 2 adult children and their families. We love our German Shepherd and enjoy walking or riding bikes with her and taking her to Dog Parks. We love boating and exploring the backwaters and nuances of the Chickamauga.
Debbie & Rick purchased this House in 2016
Why Debbie & Rick chose Decatur
We dreamed of owning a home on the water for many years and jumped at the opportunity when it presented itself! After spending time here we trust that you will be as blessed and rejuvenated as we are with each stay.
What makes this House unique
On this part of the Chickamauga there is less congestion, providing safer boating activities than many other highly populated areas. In the fall we enjoy watching the yachts and pleasure craft going by on their way to UT Knoxville games! And winter is a great time to enjoy clear blue skies and a good cup of coffee while watching bird migration. The neighborhood is quiet providing a wonderful break from your busy life. Just a mile or less in either direction and you can access a boat launch and fuel.

We truly enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful. The owners were great and quick to respond to all my messages.
Very happy to hear you enjoyed your Thanksgiving stay in our home. We appreciated having you and would love to host you and your family again anytime!
Family Reunion on the River
First of all, the home is immaculate and as described on VRBO. Outstanding reno with numerous upgrades and great decor. We were 100% pleased with the home and property. Very peaceful with beautiful views. We were in Decatur, Tn to celebrate a family reunion for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was a great place to unwind at the end of each day. Debbie/Rick were great to work with and even recommended several places for us to have lunch/dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed Monkey Town Brewery in Dayton. The beer and the food were excellent! The prices very reasonable and our servers both times were awesome. Also, visited Cookies and Cream on 4th. We had a great time chatting with the owners, super folks, the ice cream and cookies, were delicious...mmmm.
I highly recommend the "River House at Mile Marker 514.
Very excited to hear how pleased you are with our home. And super happy to hear about the places in Dayton that you enjoyed, as well! We hope you’ll come again for another relaxing getaway, even if there isn’t a family reunion to attend. Would love to have you back anytime! Lots of small-town places left to explore!
I couldn’t have been happier with this stay. Everything was perfect, house was very well stocked.
We were so pleased to have you as our guests! Glad to hear you enjoyed our home. Would be honored to host you all again sometime.
Relaxing getaway with covered boat dock
We had a wonderful time boating and relaxing at “Milemaker 514” cabin. Debbie greeted us when we arrived and made sure that all our needs where meet. The cabin was comfortable, beautiful and clean and was well stocked with extras that you don’t always get with a rental. This was one of our best VRBO stays!
So happy to hear you had an enjoyable time at our home! We work very hard to ensure our guests are comfortable and relaxed. You and your hubby were fantastic guests! We welcome you back anytime!
Very nice lake house
The lake house is well equipped with a very nice covered dock. There aren’t any restaurants around so it’s very nice that the kitchen is so nice. It’s a great get away from it all lake house.
Absolutely peaceful, breathtaking, vacation home!
This property is very superb. From the home itself to all of the furnishings, and everything that goes with this home is of high quality. The owners made our experience from check in to check out a fantastic experience. The property was very tranquil and we are all so rested . I would highly recommend this property. Thanks again Debbie and Rick for an amazing experience. 😁�
