House was perfect, view was beautiful. The owners were super easy to communicate with.
We loved the house on the River and spent most of our time sitting watching the water and relaxing. The River was more of a creek that a river. Not very good for fishing but great to look at. The only disappointment was no cell phone service.
Thank you for being good guests. You are correct to mention the lack of cell service there. I have Verizon and I can usually get and send texts, but voice is often not available. I don't know how it is for other service providers. Hope you can return. Thank you for taking such good care of things.
The little house on the river is beyond amazing. It’s in the middle of all attractions. Very easy to get to.
Glad it worked out well, despite the storms. Please come back.
Little House on the River is one of the most serene and relaxing places I have ever visited.
This is truly a little piece of heaven on earth! Joe is wonderful and very helpful with suggestions of local eateries and thing to do but honestly when you visit this little house you won’t want to leave! We will be back
Wonderful guests. I love this spot also.
Relaxing and Clean
Thank you for sharing your property with us. It was clean, relaxing and very welcoming. You have thought of every detail. We will return!
We welcome your return. Thanks for being great guests.
Quiet place to relax
We enjoyed this cottage on the Rocky River. This is a very beautiful part of Tennessee that we had not seen until our visit.
Thanks for being great guests. Hurry back!
And, check out my other house on the mountain. Tennessee Mountain Home, VRBO listing 1293460
Rock Island State Park is close by and it offers a lot of outdoor activities: fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, swimming, etc. Fall Creek Falls is a little further away and offers these options: swimming (including a pool) hiking, canoeing, paddle boating, bicycling, horseback riding, golf, tennis, etc. Cumberland Caverns is a short drive if you'd like to do a little spelunking. Links to all of these are at our website, along with several others.

Joe Moffitt purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Joe Moffitt chose Rock Island
After looking at river/creek property for several years, we found our dream spot near the headwaters of Rocky River. It is located close to our primary residence and is a favorite spot when children and grandchildren visit. As much as we love this place we call home, we also love to travel. As we have done that, and used a variety of accommodations, we have discovered that our favorite places to stay are similar to what we built overlooking Rocky River. Our idea of a perfect getaway - is just that - a getaway: from the traffic, the crowds, the noise, and the lure of tourist traps.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is a real plus. Rock Island State Park is about 15 minutes away. Cumberland Caverns is about the same. Driving just a little bit longer will take you to beautiful Fall Creek Falls State Park. As fun as those destinations are, there are not words to describe the picturesque Rocky River farming community, the sounds and sights of nature, and the calming effect of the river as it ripples by. We think you'll love Little House as much as we do! Leave your cares behind and come recharge at one of the prettiest little spots on earth.
