About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, with mountains and water
Step back in time with all of the antiques that fill the house. Such a cozy house that you will forget what day it is while you're here. Some of our favorite antiques include a TN Hoosier cabinet, claw foot tub, 1918 icebox, crank style oak telephone, and fully functional well pump at the kitchen sink. We also have a well in the front yard. All this and you are only 75 feet from the river's edge. You can sit on the front in our cedar swings or benches and hear the river!
This is relaxation at its finest. Cell phones will not get you here! But you will be enveloped with beautiful mountain views all around and can partake in catch and release fly fishing for trout at its best. Also, we have acres of land, both cleared and wooded for you to enjoy. You can access the wooded property through a culvert built by the Works Progress Administration in the 1940s. And, some of the best neighbors that you could ask for.
Viewing of deer, wild turkeys, beaver and blue heron are just a few of our regularly seen animals.
Nearby attractions include Cumberland Caverns, Bluegrass Underground, Rocky River Bluegrass, Rock Island State Park, Fall Creek Falls State Park, Burgess Falls, Centerhill Lake. This area is close to the Caney Fork River which offers prime fishing! You can to antiquing in several nearby towns. This area is a kayakers dream with numerous waterways to explore. You're also within driving distance of several larger cities such as Murfreesboro, Nashville, Chattanooga and Cookeville.
The main bedroom is downstairs and has a very comfortable king size bed and a television. Upstairs is another bedroom with a queen bed and sitting area. Upstairs is also a bunk room with 2 full size beds and a 3/4 bed. This room also has a television.
The living room has a gas fireplace adorned with Rocky River rock, a desktop computer and a flat screen above the fireplace.
The kitchen is stocked with everything that you could need during your stay here. It has custom cabinets with granite tops. There is also a flat screen television here if you need some company while cooking. We installed a dishwasher and a large farm sink with faucets on either end so someone can help with cleanup.
The oversized bathroom has 2 vanities separated by a window which offers great natural light. The custom tile shower with glass door has a glass block window and bench. There is a fully restored antique claw foot tub and washer and dryer. We also installed a tankless hot water heater so you'll never run out of hot water!!!
***Due to the age of the house and the fact that there is only 1 bathroom we have decided to limit the number of guests to 2.

About the owner: We have lived and worked in this area all our lives. Scottie owns and operates McMinnville Lawn & Garden and Margia is a professor at Motlow State Community College. We have 2 wonderful boys!
Why the Owner Chose Rock Island, TN, USA:
We both frequented this community years ago to play softball at what is now the home of Rocky River Bluegrass. We started traveling and found that we really most enjoy mountain scenery, water and serenity. This place has it all. We kept it to ourselves and our family for a couple of years. Now we have decided to share it with others who like the same things.
