So sit back and relax in the 12 rocking chairs on the 700 square ft back porch and watch the Cumberland River roll by. Very private, no neighbors close by, just deer and turkey and every kind of bird that Tennessee has to offer. Only 1 mile from Opryland Hotel and the Grand Ole Opry. Bring your pontoon boat or jet ski or just catch fish off the private covered dock or RENT OUR PONTOON AND JET SKI!!!. There is a boat launch 1 mile from property! This home was built new in 2009 but it looks like you are stepping back in time. Sleeps 12 and every bed has a memory foam mattress. Also bring your toddlers to the fenced in playground area on site. It also has a tankless water heater so your family and friends won't have to waste time waiting for hot water when getting ready for the days activities.

Viking gourmet gas stove, pink fridge with ice maker and a 1900's farm sink. Washer and dryer on ground floor. The hardwood floors came out of the old Atlanta Pencil Factory. It also has a library for those quiet times.

It also has an outdoor gas grill and a fully stocked kitchen, just bring your own food.

If your teens get bored take them 1 mile down the road to the go carts, arcade or putt putt golf or to the Opry Mills Mall and Theater that has 20 screens and an IMAX 3D. Also there are two golf courses within 4 miles. Great restaurants are also only 1 mile away. If you are looking for some night life or Titans football, downtown Nashville is only 10 minutes. Roberts Western World, Tootsies, Country Music Hall of Fame are all must sees!!! A private massage therapist available at request...

About Sandee Richey-Cox

We are John and Sandee Cox and we have been married for 33 years and have six children and two grandchildren. Originally we are from Texas and have lived in Nashville for 23 years.

Sandee Richey-Cox purchased this house in 2009

Why Sandee Richey-Cox chose Nashville

Because its stunning to watch the river roll by. It also feels like you are in a different world yet everything is super close by. Its so much easier to make beautiful memories if you are in a beautiful place!

What makes this house unique

We built this home ourselves in 2009 and we love antiques. That is why every piece has a story. It really is like stepping back in time. 1 KING BED,, 3 QUEEN BEDS,, 4 TWIN BEDS,, ALL WITH MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES,, ALSO A TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER..!!! A masseuse is available at request!!!

Very nice house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the house was awesome. The view from the back porch was great. The owners were very helpful to anything we had questions with. I'd go back and rent the house again.

Relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this charming home with three other couples and loved every minute! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of room to relax in the living room or on the porch. It was easy to get to downtown and we enjoyed all of the sights and sounds of Nashville. At the end of our busy week, we made time to sit and rock by the Cumberland and reflect on the memories made here. Now it's back to reality, but the River House will always have a special place in our hearts.

Bachelorette party fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a bachelorette party. It was amazing! John was very accommodating and made our stay great. Plenty of sleeping space. The kitchen is adorable!! Being right on the water was so much fun. The rocking chairs and gorgeous views made morning coffee on the porch a must. We would absolutely recommend the river house to others.

Great place for trade show accomodations too!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay for a trade show at Gaylord Opryland, as the hotel there was sold out. Happened to stumble upon Sandee and John's place, and it was fantastic. Only a 5 minute drive to Gaylord, less expensive than 4 hotel rooms, and a MUCH better experience than a hotel. Sandee and John graciously helped us out by accepting packages we shipped for the show, and the house was simply fantastic. Sitting on the back porch with a coffee in the morning was a much better experience than standing in line at Starbucks at Gaylord. The house had everything we needed (linens, towels, etc) and more (spices, cooking stuff, etc). It was clean, in great shape, and fantastically decorated. Great house, great hosts, and a great time. Would recommend it highly.

BEST VACATION HOUSE EVER!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about the property and Sandee and John! The house is beautiful, charming and pristine, and even though it is so close to all the bustling fun of the city (Grand Ole Opry and restaurants/bars are just down the road), we felt like we were out in the middle of nowhere. It was so peaceful, our group had plenty of room to get comfortable and relax. The property owners made sure right away that if we needed anything to just holler. We even booked an extra night at the last minute and it was super easy! I feel so blessed to have had the chance to stay here. We will definitely choose the River House again whenever we return to Nashville! Thank you Sandee and John for being lovely and welcoming hosts!

Spectacular Celebration Location!

  • 5 of 5

This review is difficult to write because I don't know where to begin to let future guests know what the best part of the River House was. I looked at several homes before choosing The River House for our 30th Anniversary party. There was a certain charm that this one had in the online pictures that made me feel that it was the right choice for us. Upon arrival we instantly felt like we were at home. We were greeted warmly by Sandee and John. We couldn't get over the relaxed, cozy feel of the home. It felt like we had stepped back in time because of the wonderful antiques in each room. While there were antiques , I never had the feeling that we couldn't fully "live" in the home.

I loved the huge kitchen and living area. Between the ten of us that stayed at the house and our other relatives who rented another property down the street, there were seventeen of us and two small children milling about at any given time during our week while we were there. Yet, it never seemed crowded at all. We all loved the great rocking chairs on the back porch! They got plenty of use. That view was so spectacular that I would take pictures several times a day over the course of the week because I just couldn't get enough of the Cumberland River view. We enjoyed the long barges that would travel up and down the river as well. Sometimes they would acknowledge us with a flash of a light or the blow of a horn as they passed by.

The sitting area, just inside the front entry, is filled with all types of books. It is a nice place to just sit and relax. There was also a cupboard full of games, not to mention a banjo in one of the closets.

The house was very clean and we found everything we needed in the kitchen, bath, and bedroom areas. Previous guests had left some items in the cupboards so check before going to the store. You may not need things like coffee filters, spices, and such.

John and Sandee were always just a phone call away if we needed anything. They were very accommodating and willing to give any information we needed.

We liked the fact that the house was so close to Opry Mills area. The Grand Ole Opry is just a few minutes away by car or a decent walk for the ambitious. We used Uber a few times to get downtown and that was very convenient.

We had a fantastic week and were thrilled that during our celebration our daughter got engaged right there. Lots of great memories were made at The River House!
