About Suzanne and Cliff Rockstead

Cliff and Suzanne have been married for 49 years, have a grown son, and wonderful grand-daughter. They both love animals, currently have 2 dogs, Nicky, and Frannie, and 1 cat, Mittens.

Both obtained graduate degrees from the University of TN. Cliff works as professor of business at a local community college, says it is his retirement job. Suzanne has had a varied career as a social worker and interior designer.

They have been welcoming guests into their home for 2 years and have met people from many countries in Europe, South America, and the Orient. It has been an incredibly fun journey and has changed our lives forever. Our interests have expanded, and we have been able to participate in some of our guests functions and activities.

We live on the property and are almost always available. We enjoy interacting with our guests, but also allow you as much privacy as you need. Some guests "pop in and out" of the main house regularly, and there are a few whom we have never seen.

Suzanne and Cliff Rockstead purchased this house in 2009

Why Suzanne and Cliff Rockstead chose Nashville

We had always lived in subdivisions and had built our "final house". After a few years and acquiring two dogs and a cat, we wanted more land for the pets, a place where the dogs could run "off-leash". (Suzanne also wanted a pool!) This was the perfect place, though we really did not want the pool house as additional upkeep. We love to walk to the lake with the dogs, and Mittens spends his days in the adjacent field looking for prey.

Suzanne loves to shop and daily "runs up" to Providence to pick up something.

What makes this house unique

The location is "unbelievable". Mount Juliet is growing rapidly and constantly building. We feel we live in the country with all the quiet benefits, yet can enjoy all the benefits of the city of Nashville. Besides living adjacent to 37 mile long Percy Priest Lake, we are minutes from Long Hunter State Park and Cedars of Lebanon State Park, which are great for hiking, picnics, and boating. Outdoor lovers can rent canoes, engage in nature day and night events, swim, play tennis, and horseback ride at the parks.

Just like the picture

  • 5 of 5

When you see a picture of where you will be staying and you get there and it is just not as nice as you imagined. Well, this is better than the picture.

We are limited to where we can go because of our kitten. Suzanne and Cliff were so welcoming and welcomed the kitten just as they welcomed us.

The house is decorated in a beach theme and is beautifully done. We entertained

guests and the house had everything you could imagine to entertain.

It is very rural and quiet, yet you are 3 miles away from a great mall with lots of shopping and restaurants and a movie theatre.

I dont want to go on and on but it was a week for us that could have been stressful but when we turned into the driveway it was like being home. We plan to return soon. That is if we can get in. Their calendar is busy most of the time.

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank Suzanne & Cliff for offering this beautiful pet friendly rental. It was immaculate and decorated beautifully. There is a nice fenced yard for your pets and a very nice area to take them on walks. This home feels like you are out in the country but in less than 5 minutes you have access to lots of stores and dining. I am hoping we will be able to stay here again in the future.

Do not let this accommodation get away. Both Cliff and Suzanne are most accommodating and their VRBO property is a must. Exceptionally clean and well supplied for your needs. The area is beautiful with lots nature, and close-by shopping and dining. Would recommend without hesitation.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We're we're greeted upon arrival by Suazanne, who is supremely nice and sweet. Our walk through was very quick and she went over everything that we needed to know so that our stay would be pleasant. Very HomeAway feeling and it was easy to start relaxing right away. The pool was the best part for the kids, they practically lived in there and loved the diving board. Cliff and Suzanne were easy conversationalists and a joy to talk to and get to know. Mount Juliet has everything you'd need all in one place and was only a 5 minute drive down the road, and downtown Nashville is only about 20 minutes away. The close proximity of the lake makes it great if you have or want to rent a boat for the day or weekend. We had a blast and look forward to our next excursion to Nashville where we will definitely look up Suzanne and Cliff to see if their place is available again. Thank you so much for make my our mini vacation a success!

What a wonderful and charming place to stay! Great place to relax and Suzanne is so sweet. Being from Chicago where it's noisy, this was heaven! A little out of the way....bout 30 min to Nashville but well worth it.

As a tree lover, I am in heaven here at this house and Tennessee. Breathtaking.

Thanks for the memories.
