Overview

Rockwood House Rental Photos and Description

House - 4 Bedrooms - 2.5 Baths - Sleeps 15

'Peaceful' is the word everyone uses to describe this home. The house has been completely remodeled and features a Custom Kitchen with Granite Countertops. The den has a 55' TV with Dish Network High Definition satellite service and a DVD player. The master bedroom has a 27' tv with satellite service and a DVD/VCR.

The large covered dock with patio furniture is perfect for boating, swimming, fishing, or even a picnic on the lake. There is a boat ramp next to the dock to launch your boat and plenty of parking for your vehicles and trailers. Or, you can rent a boat at any one of the nearby marinas. The covered boat slip will accommodate almost any boat up to 24 ft in length.

There are 3 porches (one enclosed, one screened, and one open) to enjoy the quiet setting of this home. The six person hot tub is perfect to relax and unwind after a great day on the lake!

One bedroom on the main level has a Queen Bed and the other has 2 bunk beds (twin over full). The 2 bedrooms on the top floor have a King Bed in one and 2 Queen beds in the other bedroom

Your outside pets are welcome anywhere on the 1 acre lot and dock. There is also a 16 x 30 concrete, fenced in lot for their use. Wireless High Speed internet service included!

Why Rodger Moon chose Rockwood

Hi, thanks for looking! I bought and lived in this home for 7 years and completely remodeled and updated the home while living there. I moved to Oak Ridge to shorten my commute to work and decided to keep this home as a vacation rental.

Perfect for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

This home worked out very well for our large family (2 parents, 3 grown kids plus 3 spouses, and one baby) who were in the area for a memorial service. It was nice to have two bedrooms on the second floor, which allowed the baby to sleep while others played games in the basement. We didn't have nice weather, so didn't get to enjoy the lakefront, though it would have been lovely to sit out on the dock in warmer weather. All in all, this home met our expectations and worked out very well. Rodger's communication before our stay was very prompt and helpful.

Shabby, run-down property on muddy pond!

  • 1 of 5

All prior reviews must be completely FRADULENT! This property is in a horrible neighborhood and is no way private! We walked in and were hit with an overwelming smell of mildew and mold! Our Verizon Wireless did not connect, and the wi-fi internet was slow and extremely limited! The hot tub was 71 degrees and it was promised to be 95 (we own a hot tub... it takes one hour per degree to heat!) The "LAKE" was muddy and smelly and one could TOSS a rock to the other side. There was no land-line phone even though the listing claimed to have this feature and we felt completely cut off from the world with no way to handle an EMERCENCY....we tried to text/email property owner but it wouldn't go through! Having rented many properties over the years, this is by far the worst misrepresentation we have ever come across. We decided that it was so bad that we had to leave immediately and texted/emailed our complaints to the owner. He never responded to any of his fradulent ammenities and would NOT refund our money. DON'T STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY! It is not a VACATION rental, It is a NIGHTMARE!

Owner's Response: I would have really appreciated an opportunity to correct any issues this group may have had. I responded to their text message within 30 minutes and explained that emergency calls could be made from either the home phone or their cell phones. I also reminded this group that my hot tub would take about 4 hours to heat and that they should set the desired temperature when they arrived. I had explained this to them when they made the reservation. They responded by saying they had already vacated the property. They were at the property less than 2 hours and these were the only two issues that were stated on the day of their check in. I did refund their deposit but did not refund the rent portion as I do not feel these two issues in any way would justify a refund. I have never had any previous complaints about the phone or the hot tub. My policies are no different than any other vacation home I have stayed at and are in line with the recommendations from Homeaway.com. I have been renting out this home as a vacation rental since 2007 and take a lot of pride and care in ensuring each guest has a positive experience at Driftwood Cottage. I get the most feedback about the cleanliness of the home, the peaceful setting, the covered dock, and my neighbors who are very nice.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group getaway, with plenty of sleeping arrangements for the 10 people staying for the weekend. The downstairs entertainment area worked out perfectly for our group, and the boat dock was fantastic for getting our boat out on the lake. The house was very clean and well-maintained, and the owner was very responsive and helpful during the renting process. Overall, we would certainly come back for another weekend!

Great memories made with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

If there were six stars to rate this lakefront home, I would check it. We had an amazing week at Driftwood Cottage. Owner is great to respond. Family and friends were in and out, and everyone had fabulous experiences. So roomy and CLEAN. Everything exceeded what was described on the web site. The canoe was a great asset! Thanks for supplying. Everything was super clean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kitchen was well-stocked. A great family bonding was created. Wonderful home situated on a quiet cove.

Family Reunion Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family has held a reunion at this home with plans to go again next year. House is perfect for large gatherings with great kitchen to prepare food and den with large tv for those that want to keep up with the news or watch movies. Shaded yard is large so great to play games and have camp fires in evening. Covered deck on lake is wonderful and option to bring or rent a boat to fill the slip is a bonus. Neighbors on both sides of this home were very friendly and helpful. Am sure there are places to sightsee in this beautiful countryside but our focus was the lake, deck and boating opportunities!

Beauitful well maintained property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Spring break 2013. My husband was transiting to another job in Tennessee. The owner was very nice. It is obvious he tries to make everything pristine and really takes care of his property. We really enjoyed our stay. The brand new spa was great! (hot tub) Watts Bar Lake is so beautiful along with Tennessee. Thank you Roger for a great relaxing stay. Thank you also for being dog friendly!
