About Dorothea

All of my life I wanted to sing. I came out here for the music scene and a record deal and I did not get the record deal, but we bought this marvelous house in 1998. This house and the neighborhood it is in is so serene and peaceful that we just had to keep it all these years. My little girl has grown up here for the past 16 years by coming here in the summers and winters. It has been so much fun watching Nashville shift and grow. Downtown is so beautiful now. It really has transformed over the years. It is balm for the soul.

Dorothea purchased this house in 1998

Why Dorothea chose River Glen

There is just something magical about this place. I found it on a fluke. I made the realtor drive everywhere there was water in Nashville and we just HAPPENED upon this street. She was a realtor for years and never knew about our street. It was kismet. I saw it and I fell in love with it. I knew my soul just had to have this piece of heaven and I got it. Just knew it…..

What makes this house unique

I love the fact that we are private. I have very few neighbors now as the city bought out the land next to me so I have a garden setting now all down the street. The geese that come down our road and the beautiful birds that surround my home are just fantastic. I love to sit on the deck and watch the sunset. I put in a fence to be private and it is so nice to have that privacy fence. When I saw the house for the first time, I just fell in love with it. There is a lot of music history on our street. Ernest Tubb built the house that was next door to me. There are other music artists that live on our street too.

Nice River Stay in Nashville

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the river house to celebrate my husband's birthday with two other couples. The house was great with a beautiful deck view of the river. Was not too far of a drive to Broadway. Plenty of space for three people. We had a great time and will definitely stay again! Thanks for having us.

A quiet private home where my family of four had enough space to enjoy both time together and apart.

  • 4 of 5

The property suited our needs nicely. Located in a quiet neighborhood on the Cumberland River it's location is close to Opreyland and East Nashville. The house was clean, and the AC worked great on the hot sticky days we had. The owner was pleasant to talk to and was always available and responsive.

Short Stay Nothing Could Be Easier

  • 5 of 5

We only rented for a short overnight stay but immediately felt welcomed and at home. Our host laid everything out clearly and efficiently and the home was accesible from road and commercial drivers. Great find and I will certainly book again if staying in Nashville area. Thanks, Dorothea!

Perfect place for bringing family together to celebrate birthdays/anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to bring my family of 6 together for a vacation that was a nonstop flight for everyone so we chose Nashville. The Purple Moon River House was perfect for us. It's on a quiet street overlooking the Cumberland River and a short drive to the airport and downtown Nashville. The Grand Old Opry is just across the highway too which should not be missed if visiting a Nashville. The owner was very accommodating to early check in. The place was very clean with plenty of linens. She was easily accessible if needed and was truly glad we were staying at her precious house. Great story behind it! The frog pond was enjoyed by all and we also saw groundhogs, deer and fireflies. We had no problems there and wish we could have stayed longer.

Our home is in Nashville near the Grand Ole Opry and General Jackson Showboat. We are 15 minutes from downtown where you can visit the famous Ryman Auditorium, Bridgestone Arena, Country Music Hall of Fame, Tootsie's Lounge, Printer's Alley, the Wildhorse Saloon, the football arena and live broadway shows at the TPAC. We are about 15 minutes from Nashville Shores, a water park, which is loads of fun. There is a marina where you can rent jet skis and boats and paddle boats on the Percy Priest Lake which is wonderful also that is located by Nashville Shores. You can drive to Memphis and see Graceland or you can visit Dollywood, which is a four hour drive from Nashville. The wonderful magnificent Parthenon is in Nashville too, which is a do not miss. It looks just like the one in Greece and the statue of Athena is amazing. There are botanical gardens to visit and the Nashville zoo is great also. We even have a drive-in movie about an hour away. What a great city!!!
