Last VRBO stop on our trip south

We took a break from VRBO rentals for the past few days as we stayed with Ron's brother in Iowa when we joined the gathering of the Crawford clan.  Ron hadn't been together with his sister and two brothers for ages, so it was a great time to catch up on everyone's family.  

Today, we left Iowa early for the last leg of our VRBO journey.  After an uneventful trip through Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee, we arrived at Ashland City, TN.  This charming little town sits on the Cumberland River about 20 miles northwest of Nashville.
This is the view from the restaurant we found about 3 miles from the VRBO rental.  We sat on the outdoor deck and enjoyed some good southern cooking while we watched the boats cruising up the river.
The house is in a rural location, one of many that sit along canals to the river.  The road is paved, but we would never have found it without the GPS as there is a maze of roads, most of which have Riverside in part of their name.
A small canal sits behind the house.
Spacious kitchen with full size appliances, and a gas fireplace.
The master bedroom is on one end of the house, with its own attached full bath.
2nd bath is just outside the door of the 2nd bedroom on the other end of the house, so it would be ideal for two couples to share.

We have been pleasantly surprised by the VRBO rentals all the way across the country.  All have been clean, off the beaten path, but close to the interstates, and nicely appointed.
