Great Little Getaway!

Review submitted: January 23, 2010   Date of arrival: January 5, 2010

We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and cleanliness of this darling little studio rental, it was perfect for us. Rhonda designed and Nate built this most ingenius use of space we have ever seen. We had everything we needed to be comfortable and content. The airport was only 8 minutes away, shopping and restaurants only 5 miles away, Nashville and The Grand Ole Opry less than a 30 minute drive. We enjoyed our talks with Nate about his homeland here at Rockhaven. We hope to come back again soon,

Beautiful Place, Comfortable Little Cabin!

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2014

When you enter the gate at Rockhaven, you immediately know that this place is "special." The grounds are immaculate, the flowers are just beautiful and the little Calico Cabin is simply adorable. We just wanted a nice quiet place to relax and chill out after seeing the sites during the day, and this place fit the bill. The cabin has exactly what we needed, a comfortable bed, hot shower, and a coffee pot! We didn't want to do much cooking, but we had a nice size gas grill on the deck, a microwave and a little refrigerator under the counter. We just loved all the cute little touches, Rhonda & Nate thought of everything. We really enjoyed staying there and it's so close to restaurants and grocery stores, banks and just about everything. It only took us about 20 minutes to get to Nashville's attractions. We will definitely stay here when we come back to this area!

A Great Getaway!

Review submitted: September 13, 2012   Date of arrival: August 31, 2012

My boyfriend & I had such a great stay in the Calico Cabin. Just a short drive from downtown, we were able to go and see the town, but then at night when we wanted to get away from all the hustle and bustle, it was nice to drive out into the country to this quiet property. The house is small, but it was perfect for us since we were staying only for the weekend. Although we didn't have the honor of meeting Rhonda, we did talk to Nate on may occassions, and he is so friendly. We loved hearing about the farms history and his hobbies. From the house, we could see a horse pasture. It was so beautiful. Nate & Rhonda are great hosts and we can't wait to book our next stay with them!

Our stay was simply wonderful. We had so much fun walking around the pond, watching the horses and enjoying the peace and quiet. We relaxed and took advantage of the beautiful scenery and different restaurants in the area. We enjoyed visiting the Andrew Jackson House and the history there. We can't wait to visit again and try one of the other cabins. Thank God for Nate and Rhonda and may your blessings continue to manifest! Sgt. Robert L. & Alberta Appleberry, Jr.

Best get-away!

Review submitted: August 21, 2012   Date of arrival: August 17, 2012

This is an amazing place to get-away, with great shopping not too far away and Long Hunter Park close by to get outside. The Calico cabin is adorable and was just the right size for me! The owners are two of the kindest people who have a heart to provide a relaxing place for people who come from all over. I will be back as soon as possible!

Wonderful Stay at the Calico Cottage

Review submitted: August 6, 2012   Date of arrival: July 25, 2012

Rhonda and Nate are some of the best people you could ever meet! Me and my fiancé took a vacation at Rockhaven and stayed at the calico cottage it is smaller housing but was decorated so beautifully it met out every wish of a home away from home.  Basically has everything you would need to have; bed, shower, facility, television, kitchen area and lounge area.  We really enjoyed our stay and we thank you Nate and Rhonda! We look forward in staying again one day. thanks!

Relaxing Stay at the Calico Cottage

Review submitted: June 2, 2012   Date of arrival: April 21, 2012

Recently my boyfriend and I took a road trip to Tennessee and stayed at the RockHaven Calico Cottage. We had the most relaxing time and were really able to catch up on some much needed rest after a few hectic months working in a big city. Nate and Ronda were so hospitable and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. Ronda decorated it adorably and at night you could sit on the porch and watch the sunset with all the beautiful colors glowing in the sky. If we ever find our way back through the Nashville area again we will be sure to stay at RockHaven.

Hello Nate & Rhonda. Our stay was everything we had imagined plus. The property that nestles the hide-a-way is absolutely gorgeous. Amongst the petite cabin that had plenty to offer for us, a Married couple, we'd highly recommend this to any couple. Quiet, Serene & Relaxing to just to list a few of our moments, especially the warm feeling of your company in the setting made for a peaceful time. We look forward to another stay in the future along with some friends of ours. Our hats off to Nate for all of his hard word in keeping the grounds look immaculate & Rhonda thumbs up to you for taking care of all the brilliant flowers. Thank you again for your hospitality, friendship & sharing your place you call home with us.

Owners response: What a special couple! These are the kind of guests you want to stay on your property...very respectful and gracious, thoughtful and appreciative. Thank you for staying, and for your review!

Calico Cottage review

Review submitted: April 21, 2012   Date of arrival: March 10, 2012

This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Nashville! The cottage has everything you need and more. It's small but has plenty of storage and usable space. It was really relaxing sitting on the porch in the morning drinking coffee and listening to the birds overlooking the pond. It is on a beautiful property and the owners are very helpful and friendly. They are long time residents of the area and were eager to share their knowledge of the area. They also have fast free wireless internet which was helpful when traveling. I would definitely recommend staying here and we plan on staying here again.

Owners response: This was the nicest couple, they were very quiet, clean and respecful. We are so glad they enjoyed their time here and appreciate their review of the little efficiency!

Just the place I needed to be

Review submitted: February 20, 2012   Date of arrival: January 18, 2012

So glad I found your place online. I needed a quiet getaway to be all by myself and de-stress after a few months of way too much going on in my life. When I arrived, Rhonda & Nate were so warm and welcoming, they made me feel right at home. The week I spent here was one of the most relaxing I've spent in quite some time. I am going back to my busy life but with a renewed spirit and happy heart. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven on earth with others.

Dear Rhonda & Nate,

We have had such a nice time, here in this little rental, very cozy and serene. We enjoyed seeing the snow one day, rain the next and sunshine before we left. Your property is beautiful in the winter, and I have not doubt that it's gorgeous in the summer with all your pretty flowers and landscaping touches. Thank you for sharing your place with others!

My Haven at Calico Cottage

Review submitted: November 20, 2011   Date of arrival: October 19, 2011

I was in bad need of a few days of "me" time in a quiet haven. I found it at Rockhaven! "My" cottage was exactly what I wanted - peaceful, clean, beautiful farm surroundings, privacy, and the cottage had everything I needed. To be greeted by Rhonda was a blessing! My hostess was so sweet and when I shared some of my reasons for "me" time, I felt as if I had a friend listening!! Rhonda and Nate, you are blessed to have so much beauty surrounding you and to share this with others is wonderful.
I enjoyed reading the history of Rockhaven and the book with attractions, places to eat, and things to do was very convenient. A perfect place to stay when you are enjoying all the Nashville area has to offer.

Owners response: Sometimes you meet someone that you feel a kinship with almost immediately, that was my experience with this lovely lady. We shared a few minutes of conversation and I felt like I was talking to a longtime friend. I'm so glad you found our place and the little cottage to be exactly what you needed and wanted. We are here...come back whenever you can, you are always welcome!

Secluded and Peaceful

Review submitted: October 14, 2011   Date of arrival: October 9, 2011

This Studio was small and cozy. Has everything you need to be comfortable. So clean, which is a must for the two of us!!! My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nites here, and enjoyed several great conversations with Nate. He made us feel like family. Of course Rhonda did too, except we didn't get to spend as much time with her because she was doing a much deserved vacation herself. I'd stay here again and again. I told them both I call it "Home". That is what it feels like when you pull through the security gate. Plus, they are more than willing to help you with your stay in any way they can. With their Christian beliefs, and their caring ways, you just can't beat these two people. You'll not want to stay anywhere else again. I promise. Teresa and Dale

Owners response: What dear and wonderful people these two are! Even though I only had a few minutes with them before I took off to visit my sister, out of state, they were very warm and friendly. Teresa was a sweetheart, from the moment she called to make the reservation, and she was so thoughtful to call and let us know their arrival time had changed. Nate couldn't stop talking about Dale and Teresa when I got home (they had already left), he was so happy to get to know them and share some stories about the farm and his life here. We have NEVER had anyone stay that cared for our place like they did, Teresa actually cleaned the entire cottage before they left and even sent Dale to get clean sheets and towels from Nate, YES, she even made the bed and put out clean towels!!! Now that's a FIRST for us! What a wonderful person, to take the time to do this for us. We were definitely blessed by their visit and look forward to having them back again!!

Perfect Little Getaway

Review submitted: October 11, 2011   Date of arrival: October 7, 2011

My daughter and I wanted to visit Tennessee in the fall, we found this cute little cottage online. The cottage was just adorable and Rhonda has a real knack for decorating, we loved all the whimsical touches she added to make it feel warm and cozy, we just loved it. The trees were just beginning to change colors and the farm is so peaceful and quiet, it was a pleasure to sit on the porch in the evening and watch the beautiful sunsets. There's a nice big mall only a few minutes away, with our favorite, the Olive Garden restaurant...lots of places to shop, too. Rhonda & Nate were so friendly and helpful, giving us information about places to go and things to do in Nashville. We enjoyed our time here so much, and we hope to come back again sometime.

1 Night Stay

Review submitted: October 4, 2011   Date of arrival: September 30, 2011

I love this place. Rhonda is such a nice woman and the actual property was perfect. While I was only there for one night, I was wishing I had stayed a week. The actual property is a great old horse farm, very secluded, quiet and nice. The room is small (who goes on vacation to stay in the room the whole time anyway?) but has everything you need: bed, couch, closet, sink, fridge, microwave and bathroom. It also has a porch with a grill. I wasn't expecting to spend much time in the room so the size was perfect. I would suggest this property to anyone else in a heartbeat. The only problem is that it's not downtown, I didn't have any problems with the drive, but if you don't have a car it will definitely be a major hassle getting into the city.

Owners response: Staying here is definitely away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but the trade off is worth it. Great shops and restaurants are only 4.5 miles from the property and Nashville's attractions are a 20 minute drive. One must definitely have transportation when staying here.

If you are considering a trip to Nashville, you can stop searching for a place to stay as you just found it! This little studio is located on a beautiful site.

A Cozy, Clean and Comfortable Little Rental

Review submitted: March 5, 2011   Date of arrival: February 25, 2011

We stayed four nights in this little efficiency and it was perfect for us. The property at Rockhaven is just beautiful, even though there had been lots of rain and storms while we were there, we enjoyed hearing the rain on th metal roof of the cottage. Rhonda & Nate have made this little cottage very comfortable and cozy. We had our coffee on the front porch while we watched the squirrels and rabbits play in the yard. Nashville was only a short 20 minute drive away and we loved the nice mall and convenience of grocery stores and restaurantss just a few miles from the rental. We hope to come back again in the near future.

Mark and I have traveled a good bit and have stayed in some pretty nice places, but this tops them all! It's close to everything and away from it all, at the same time. The cottage is so warm and cozy, relaxing, and peacful...just perfect, etc.... I can say for certain that we will be back -- a lot!! This was also a very educational trip, we got lots of new ideas and plans for our landscaping now. By the looks of this little comment book, ya'll have made a lot of people very happy and content with their accommodations. Thank you so much for sharing this little piece of heaven with us.

Dear Nate & Rhonda,

We're so glad we found your little Calico Cottage during our travels, it was a nice stop over while on our trip to northwest Virginia. We rested so well and enjoyed watching the rabbits and squirrels play every morning on your beautifully manicured lawns. This was just the right place to hang our hats for a few days. We plan to return on our way back home in a couple of weeks!

What a sweet little cottage!

Review submitted: November 9, 2009   Date of arrival: November 1, 2009

My daughter always wanted to visit Nashville, so she searched online for a place to stay while we were there and she found Rockhaven's Calico Cottage. We stayed four nights and had the best time! I wanted to leave my responsibilities of cooking at home so this little place was perfect. We had everything we needed for breakfast, a coffee pot and a microwave to warm some yummy strawberry nut bread, warmed in the microwave, and we were all set for the day. The cottage is arranged to make the most of the space. We really enjoyed sitting on the front porch and watching the wildlife in the morning AND seeing the beautiful stars at night. Rhonda and Nate were the greatest! What a talented pair these two are!! Rhonda designs and Nate builds. The farm is so peaceful and quiet yet only a few minutes from a big shopping mall with several of our favorite restaurants. This was a trip that will be added to the vacation scrapbook. We had some very special mother and daughter time here. I plan to come back with my husband in the near future. Thank you Rhonda and Nate for all your hospitality! Susan says she wanted to stay another four nights! :)

What a great little doll house! The Calico Cottage was the perfect spot to spend the week while traveling with my parents. It's not very often that I get to take a vacation with my parents but this was the best time I can remember in many years. We live in different states, as I am in college.

The grounds at this property were just beautiful with flowers everywhere and nice shade trees. I enjoyed taking a morning walk and sitting on the deck in the evening watching the fireflies. Nate and Rhonda were the perfect couple putting their talents together to create these wonderful vacation rentals.

I hope to come back to this lovely, serene place again! :)
