About Joe Moffitt
Your hosts are Debby & Joe Moffitt. We have always lived in Middle Tennessee and feel fortunate to be so close to so much natural beauty. Joe is a retired school administrator and we still operate a nursery - Shangri La Farm - primarily selling daylilies. Together, we have 12 children and 30 grandchildren.
Joe Moffitt purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Joe Moffitt chose Rock Island
After looking at river/creek property for several years, we found our dream spot near the headwaters of Rocky River. It is located close to our primary residence and is a favorite spot when children and grandchildren visit. As much as we love this place we call home, we also love to travel. As we have done that, and used a variety of accommodations, we have discovered that our favorite places to stay are similar to what we built overlooking Rocky River. Our idea of a perfect getaway - is just that - a getaway: from the traffic, the crowds, the noise, and the lure of tourist traps.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is a real plus. Rock Island State Park is about 15 minutes away. Cumberland Caverns is about the same. Driving just a little bit longer will take you to beautiful Fall Creek Falls State Park. As fun as those destinations are, there are not words to describe the picturesque Rocky River farming community, the sounds and sights of nature, and the calming effect of the river as it ripples by. We think you'll love Little House as much as we do! Leave your cares behind and come recharge at one of the prettiest little spots on earth.

Perfect Little Hide Away
Thank you so much for giving me the most special day out of the year (Christmas Day) to get to spend with my family in your Little House! Everything was completely perfect! Space, spotless, everything we need to have our Christmas dinner and the views were absolutely incredible! God sure knew what he was doing when he gave y’all this little house! Merry Christmas to all!
Thank you for taking such good care of this special place.
Great place to get away from it all!
The Little House by the River was a serene place for us to unplug and really enjoy the river! Our boys loved swinging in the swings and exploring along the riverbank. We made memories here that will last a lifetime. Joe was very kind and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. It was a fantastic family trip!
Glad it went well. Thank you for being such good communicators and taking such good care of Little House. I think the place has a spirit about it that folks like you enhance by leaving a little of yourselves there to add to the mix.
My husband and I stayed at the Little House on the River to get away together and we couldn't have been happier. The peace and quiet was just what we needed....the sounds of the river, the coziness of the house, the feeling we were away from everything, yet close enough to visit local places. We sat outside on the porch, sat in the swings and at one point I napped outside in a chair, all while listening to the soothing sounds of the river. The house was super clean and bed was very comfortable. Thank you Joe for such a quaint home away from home. We will definitely come back to the area and would love to stay at The Little House on the River.
Thanks for staying at Little House. I love it when people seem to enjoy it as much as I do.
Rock Island State Park is close by and it offers a lot of outdoor activities: fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, swimming, etc. Fall Creek Falls is a little further away and offers these options: swimming (including a pool) hiking, canoeing, paddle boating, bicycling, horseback riding, golf, tennis, etc. Cumberland Caverns is a short drive if you'd like to do a little spelunking. Links to all of these are at our website, along with several others.
