“Perfect Stay”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2015

Uncle Pete's Cabin was the perfect place for us to stay on our vacation to visit Nashville. The views are absolutely beautiful and nothing beats the peace and quiet you experience during your stay there. My husband and I loved that it was only a 20 minute drive to the city so we could experience the best of both worlds. Nate and Rhonda have created the perfect vacation rental and their hospitality is outstanding. I will recommend Uncle Pete's Cabin to anyone I know that is visiting Nashville. I know my husband and I will definitely be staying here again when we come back to visit the amazing city of Nashville and the beautiful towns that surround it.

Owner's reply: If all our guests were as respectful and appreciative of our place, what a joy it would be!! Thanks so much ya'll!

“I would most definitely recommend”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2015

The owners were so polite but they gave us out space. Me and my wife were on our honeymoon and I couldn't have asked for a better place to have stayed. It's a quiet place away from the city life, but not that far of a drive from downtown nashville. The inside of the cabin was very nice and felt very "home-like" to us. We would recommend Rockhaven cabins to anyone.

“Awesome getaway”

Thanks Nate and Rhonda , We loved your cabin and your property. We had such a good time and we will highly recommend this rental to our friends. Everything was perfect. Thanks again, Kevin and Amy.

“A Little piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2012

My husband and I found Rockhaven Cabins by chance and decided to give them a try. Not a regret in our decision at all. The property and owners (Nate and Rhonda Powell) was beyond our expectations at best. Pristine grounds, views to die for and never enough good to say about the Powells. Warm, generous and inviting people that I became addicted too. Such a beautiful, restful and homy place to stay if looking for some R & R or just passing by. We are looking forward to going back in the future and would highly reccomend it to anyone. Loved Uncle Pete's cabin thoroughly as it made us feel right at home from our initial entry to our departure. Even had a few shed tears as we left.

Owner's reply: Such sweethearts, these people were delightful and very warm and friendly. Lynda even made a quilt for me, with our American flag on it. Thank you so much for staying and enjoying your time here!

“Relaxing Southern Getaway”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

We couldn't have found a better place to go for a relaxing southern getaway! Uncle Pete's Cabin exceeded our expectations from the moment we walked in the door. We were able to enjoy beautiful scenery while having all the conveniences of home right there for us. It was exactly what we needed for a weekend away from our 2 small children! Only 15 minutes away from downtown Nashville, we were able to enjoy a city night out and still come back to a peaceful place. All of Nashville's tourist attractions are only a short drive away It was so convenient to have shopping and grocery stores just down the road which we utilized often. Rhonda's decorating was wonderful..all the details were perfect for the style and character of the cabin! We loved chatting with Rhonda and Nate and enjoyed all their southern hospitality and charm. We definitely look forward to a future trip to Rockhaven Cabins!

“Peaceful, Beautiful and Relaxing”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2011

My wife and I stayed at Rockhaven for our 30th aniversary, we were very impressed with the beauty of the grounds and Uncle Pete's cabin. The cabin was very charming and spotless. The veiw from the front porch was a great way to start every morning, watching the horses run through the fields and listening to the birds singing would set the mood for the day. Rhonda and Nate were the perfect hosts and you can tell they take a lot of pride in their cabins. The location is a big plus, you are 15 minutes from either downtown Nashville or some very nice state parks. We would reccomend anyone to stay there and are looking forward to a return visit. Another thing that impressed us was the friendliness of all the people in the area, I think they call it "SOUTHERN CHARM' Thanks again Nate and Rhonda for a memorable and relaxing stay.

Owner's reply: Wow, what nice folks! We always want our guests to feel as comfortable and relaxed and these folks. Come back again....any time!!

“You'll not want to leave.”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

We were so pleased with Rockhaven we have already suggested it to many of our friends as a great place to stay. The beautifully maintained grounds, the clean and pleasant cabin, the plethora of wildlife, and the peacefulness of the location all make this a place for a fantastic weekend getaway or a nice, long vacation. The cabin sites are so quite and yet only a few minutes away there is about any restaurant you could want, plus good shopping and cinema offerings. But if you're like us, you'll decide to spend most of your time just relaxing at your cabin and enjoying the surroundings of Rockhaven.

“Who Could Ask for Anything More!!”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2011

We found Rockhaven while searching for a nice getaway this fall. The moment we saw the photos, we fell in love with the place! Not only are the photos beautiful online, but when we got there our mouths fell open, as we took in the beauty of this gorgeous place. "Uncle Pete's Cabin" is top notch, furnished and decorated with taste and charm. As soon as we walked inside, we felt right at home. We were thrilled to learn that Rhonda designed the rentals and Nate built them. These two wonderful people are such professionals at their work, and so friendly and accommodating...always willing to help us with all of our questions. A very nice touch was a booklet that Rhonda put together with the story of the farm and all the generations before them, stories about the years gone by and about how the cabin came to be. It was also full of information about places to visit, things to do, with directions for shops, restaurants, parks, lakes, and just about anything you could imagine. We came back for our second visit in January after spending a week here in September. We plan to make this beautiful place one of our regular vacation spots for many years to come. Of all the places we've stayed, this has to be at the very top of the list! Thank you Rhonda & Nate for a wonderful vacation at your place, we look forward to coming back!!

Most wonderful place to go for any type of vacation. It's remote yet close enough to town for anything you might need. Plan to go there again, soon!

We found this cabin by accident on the internet and are so glad we did. Nate and Rhonda were very gracious hosts and Uncle Pete's Cabin was so comfortable and welcoming. We had a wonderful honeymoon and look forward to visiting again soon.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This couple stayed in Uncle Pete's Cabin and left this sweet note in our guest book:

When you walk in this lovely cabin, you forget all your troubles and leave the world outside. From the old handlaid flooring to the unique vaulted ceiling this place is adorable. The photos online do not do this place justice. It's the perfect place for honeymoons, anniversaries, and everything in-between...a getaway to be remembered. You will want to make this your favorite place to escape from the stresses of everyday living. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Rockhaven and their private rentals will be at the top of your list as one of the best places you've ever stayed.

Wonderfully welcoming and beautifully relaxing, of course the deer and pheasant were a nice touch! Perfectly located, just the right distance from civilization :) We've never seen such a quiet and "clean" environment, what a treat!! Your listing online doesn't do to your hard work and meticulous attention to this place justice. But, then again, it got our attention!! Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven with us.

Well done, Nate and Rhonda, well done!

Dear Rhonda & Nate,

Thank you so much for your hospitality and help when my car wouldn't start. We both loved the beautiful cabin and perfectly manicured grounds. This place is so peaceful, we hate to leave. This is without a doubt, the nicest place we have ever stayed, thank you again, for everything!

We are so blessed to spend another anniversary on your beautiful, peaceful grounds. When folks ask me where we were going, I said to our "most favorite place in all the world." We love it here! And I'm sure that as long as we're on this earth...we will be back!

Thank you and may God continue to bless you both!

Thank you for a most enjoyable stay! Your attention to every detail shows...the decor has inspirational messages that touched us. Especially the "unknown blessings" plaque by the bed. It's been simply delightful and we're so glad we found you on the web. It was a pleasure to meet both of you and Skipper! We wish you much continued success and many more travelers to your cabin!

Dear Rhonda & Nate,

Amazing is the first word that came t mind when we arrived here. This is just what we needed and everything we could have dreamed of for our honeymoon! Ya'll have the nicest place we have ever been to. It was so easy to relax and enjoy our first week as husband and wife. The little extra touches here and there, and the "couples bible" were incredible. We loved the history of the cabin and the area, the country feel, the big pond with the fountain, and the beautiful landscaping. We will absolutely be back (hopefully for our first Anniversary). Thank you both for your hospitality and for sharing this wonderful cabin! We will always be grateful. Take care!

Hope to see you again, soon!

Dear Nate & Rhonda, We hope this is the first of many trips to Rockhaven! What a great place to spend our 22nd Anniversary!! We loved everything about this place, the cabin and the grounds are so Peaceful, Welcoming, Relaxing and has Great Karma!

We travel to Nashville often and this place is our best find yet. The attention to detail in the decor, landscaping and information shared is unbelievable! I love the little mouse and the mouse door, it's the little things like this that make a rental feel like a home away from home. Thanks for putting the extra time and thoughts into planning for your guests. I also loved the cookbooks in the kitchen, even found several great recipes. Our little dog Donkey Odie says, "thanks" for being dog friendly!

Best regards,

What a way to unwind, really relax and enjoy nature and her bounty, right here on this lovely farm! We came from Kentucky to visit Nashville but we spent most of our time enjoying this terrific cottage, the surroundings and the lovely couple who own it. We could not have choreographed our visit any better. We love it here and will most certainly be back. It was so clean and organized, peaceful and accommodating. We sat and looked over the land, the pond, the horses and the beauty EVERYWHERE! If you want to know if we liked it...WE LOVED IT!!!

When I spoke with Rhonda about arrangements, She could not have been nicer to me. She mentioned anything I need to just let her know.

Upon arriving on the property, Nate (owner) came out to welcome us. He gave the story on his family's property in which it has stayed there for generations. He was so friendly and so proud of what this had become.

When you enter the Cabin, lets just say that pictures don't do it justice. It was bigger than I thought. It had a full kitchen, full bathroom, etc.

The temperature was set perfect and was comfortable during the night

Everything was kept clean and spotless, provided with extra supplies you might need including a washer and dryer.

They also provided the best part, a book of organized attractions,menus, delivery options, directions, etc. definitely saved us time trying to surf the Internet.

If you are looking for a quick romantic getaway, this place will not disappoint. About a 15-20 min, drive to downtown thank you Nate and Rhonda!!!

We have stayed in all three of the cabins at Rockhaven Farm many times having discovered this jewel just after Magnolia Cottage was completed. All three are delightful! If you want peace and quiet, this is it, yet you are within a reasonable distance to downtown Nashville and ten minutes at most from Providence Place shopping area where you can find or eat anything you want. Nate and Rhonda are the real deal and would never present a cabin to their guests that they wouldn't stay in themselves. My only hesitation in submitting this review is I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find the cabins available. Seems everyone else has found them too!! That should speak for itself!

Best place to relax"

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful property and loved it! We plan on returning as soon as we can. The owners have thought of everything when it comes to details to help make your stay great. It is close to the city and other attractions yet far enough away to be quiet and private. The cabins are wonderful. Just the right size and tastefully decorated. This is one of Nashville's best kept secrets!

I found myself drawn to the front porch and just relaxing, and rocking while looking out across the pastural view, or scampering inside to get things ready for the "reunion". Upon walking over the threshold, every fiber in my being took in a breath and just held it, surveying the classy and comforting atmosphere that wrapped itself around me.

Uncle Pete's Cabin was the "headquarters" for a small family reunion of my new husband, my parents and some wonderful cousins. We had rented all three Rock Haven cottages/cabins, so that the weekend could be spent just meandering and visiting among the property that looked like it just popped out of "Home and Gardens".

Everything about Rockhaven is heart warming; the grounds, the accommodations and the owners! If I ever wanted to move to the Nashville area, I would approach Rhonda and Nate to ask if I could become a permanent rentor!

Quaint, sparkling clean, full of personality...Rockhaven is like a big fluffy sofa that you just sink into, and dread ever having to get back up.

Pristine grounds, views to die for and never enough good to say about the Powell's. Warm, generous and inviting people that I became addicted too.

Loved Uncle Pete's cabin thoroughly as it made us feel right at home, from our initial entry to our departure. Even shed a few tears as we left.

My friend and I wanted to visit Nashville and we decided against staying in a hotel, I am so so so glad we did. We absolutely loved Rockhaven. We stayed in the cabin, which had plenty of room, and all the amenities you could imagine. Plus, the prices are an absolute steal! :) The house was just perfect and meant so much to us to find out that the authentic cabin portion really used to belong to Nate's Uncle Pete, plus...Rhonda designed the addition, and Nate built it and refurbished the original cabin! I loved hearing and reading about the history of the land, their families, and all of the interesting stories about Ms. Rhonda working in the music/TV business for 25 years. The grounds are just amazing; each morning I could enjoy the beautiful view from the front porch or sit down by the pond and read. While we were there, I got to see Rhonda's new baby chickens! Nate's brother has horses next door. Mr. Nate and Ms. Rhonda were absolutely wonderful. I was so sad to leave :) They were so nice, accommodating, and really went out of their way to speak with us. I really loved speaking with them and learning more about their family history. We truly, truly, loved our stay and hope to come back soon. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend Rockhaven to anyone looking to experience Nashville, meet amazing people, and stay in a beautiful, clean, and relaxing place.
