About this listing
Our new carriage house is a private retreat in our East Nashville neighborhood. We are close to downtown and a block from the city bus line. It comfortably accommodates two and is next to a large city park. Enjoy the private suite with full bath.
Our guest suite is a private room and bath above our detached garage. The garage is 2012 construction in our historical neighborhood.

Parking is available on our driveway or on the street in front of our house.
The suite has central air conditioning and heat and lots of windows. The TV is digital over the air broadcast with approximately 20 channels. The space is on the second floor up one flight of stairs.
In addition to your private guest suite over the garage, you will have access to our backyard and screen porch. The porch is perfect for relaxing in front of a fire on a cool evening, watching TV, or just relaxing.

The Private Carriage House was the perfect home away from home. Located in a quiet East Nashville neighborhood just a short and inexpensive ride from downtown and other must see locations. The carriage house was meticulously clean, very comfortable, offered complimentary coffee, snacks, water, ice and real privacy. John and Mike were perfect hosts, they offered a wealth of information on Nashville, were readily available if we had questions, and were very kind. We were given more than a nice place to stay, we were shown true hospitality. We will definitely stay again when in Nashville.
John was quite pleasant and affable. We were cool with everything. I loved the neighborhood more than I can say.
Our stay at John and Mike's place couldn't have been better. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. The carriage house is spacious and extremely comfortable. John and Mike have thought of everything with lots of extras- like the chocolates on the bed when we arrived and cold water downstairs in the fridge. The windows make the place very airy with great greenery outside and shades to keep the light out if you want to sleep in. Their guide book of the area was very useful and extensive. This is the place to stay if visiting Nashville.
Loved loved loved our first Airbnb experience! Anyone who is going to the East Nashville area has to stay at this Private Carriage House. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating. The Carriage House itself was much better than any hotel room in the best hotels around. Seriously perfect. Clean, comfortable, beautiful home surroundings and enjoyed the neighborhood setting. My favorite surprise was being able to jog on the nearby trail along the river. Thank you John, Mike and sorry, but Otis was by far the cutest host ever!
Our stay at John & Mike's private carriage house was awesome!! They really thought of everything-- coffee/snacks, toiletries, blow-dryer, post-cards... we even had Nashville GooGoo chocolates left on our pillows when we arrived! There is also a full-sized fridge/freezer in the garage below which was nice to be able to use. The space is beautifully decorated and clean with everything you could want. This was our first time using AirBnb so I wasn't sure what to expect (we've always stayed at standard hotels/B&B's), but now I'm a believer! Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Music City.
Staying at the carriage house was a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed Nashville and our stay here was better than we had imagined. It was a beautiful cozy spot, and John & Mike were great hosts!
About the Host, John And Mike
John travels a lot, mostly for work. We enjoy seeing our country's diverse landscapes and meeting new people.
We began hosting in the spring of 2013, so we've now used Airbnb to both travel and host. We enjoy the Airbnb platform and its trusting environment.
