Music City River Retreat is hidden away on a residential street less than a mile from The Grand Ole Opry, Opryland Resort and Convention Center, Opry Mills Mall and great restaurants and bars. You won't even realize how close to the action you are when you are relaxing watching the river and the wildlife in the yard. It is a two story house with an open floor plan that includes the family room, kitchen and eating area. This area has real hardwood floors and is great for entertaining. There is a 52 inch flat screen TV above the gas fireplace in the family room with bose speaker surround sound, cd player, HD cable, blu ray player and WIFI internet connection. The Master Bedroom and a small bedroom are downstairs and there are two bedrooms upstairs. A scene from the film 'Lukewarm' with John Schneider and Jet Jurgensmeyer was filmed here in 2012. The house was also featured in a weather channel show called 'Twist of Fate', season 1 episode 6 and 'The Ellen Show' about the 2010 Nashville Flood.

About Bill and Anne Crousser

Bill and I have been married for 10 years and have lived in the Donelson area for 15 years. We designed and built this house in 2008 and have really enjoyed raising our kids here. We have also owned and operated a licensed locksmith company for over five years in this area. We know that anyone that stays here will be able to build great memories with their friends and families.

Bill and Anne Crousser purchased this house in 2008

Why Bill and Anne Crousser chose Pennington Bend

We fell in love with this area of Nashville because it is so close to everything. We have both always loved the water and just love relaxing on the back porch watching the river.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property because of the beauty of the river. We bought the land then designed and built the house in 2008. It is a country setting in the heart of the city.

Perfect House for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

This home is close to Grand Ole Opra and a perfect home for all ages. Our family celebrated my husband's birthday and we had grandchildren from 2 to 19. With the pool, hot tub, pool table, ping pong table and many other things we were all entertained when we weren't out enjoying activities in Nashville. The home was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly want. We would definitely return. Thanks for a great stay!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location to be able to have an affordable weekend in Nashville! We celebrates my bachlorette with 8 girls total and plenty of room! Grocery store located near by to save money from eating out for each meal. An average 18$ uber ride into the city, about 20 minutes away. Beautiful mornings on the river and evening playing yard many to choose from. Jumped in the hot tub after partying it up in the city. Bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, and the shower was a real treat! Anne let is check in early and was willing to accomodate out needs for departure. I will be back!

Great house.

  • 5 of 5

The house on the river was exactly as described. We had a group of ten and there was plenty of room for everyone. Downtime Nashville, the airport and shopping were able 10-15 minutes away. It was also nice to hang out by the pool and hot tub. I would recommend this house.

Car: recommended

We live on a quiet residential street that is only half a mile from The Opryland Hotel and The Grand Ole Opry House. We also live less than a mile from the Opry Mills Mall that has a movie theatre and many unique stores if you love shopping. We live in an area called 'Music Valley' and there are quite a few unique attractions within a mile of the house. We live 10 minutes from downtown Nashville and of course there are too many places to list that are worth going to visit there! If you bring your boat we have a boat dock and it is only a 10 minute boat ride to downtown on the river! We also live 5 minutes from the Two Rivers Greenway that has a beautiful pedestrian Bridge across the Cumberland River and miles of walking/biking trails. We will be posting pictures on our website and Facebook page and we encourage you to post as well during your stay here.
