Cozy Cottage close to downtown

House - Private room · North 2nd Street, Nashville, TN 37207, United States

This is the perfect home base for travelers looking for the sights + sounds downtown or the award-winning tastes of East Nashville, two of Nashville's best tourist hotspots. One of our two listed rooms, this listing is perfect for traveling couples.

The Space

Our 3 bedroom/2.5 bath two-story home is on a corner-lot in East Nashville. Other homes may claim to be close to downtown, but we're less than 5 minute drive from downtown, 5 minute drive from East Nashville's best restaurants, and 2 minute drive from interstate access. It's the perfect launching point for experiencing any part of the city.

This listing is for our main guest room - a cozy, full-size bed with a down sleeping pad for extra comfort. For guests staying more than one night, there's plenty of open closet and drawer space to store your things. The 4 piece guest bath is across the hall.

Guest Access

Guests have shared access to the entire downstairs area (living room, reading nook, dining table, kitchen, washer/dryer, powder room) as well as the deck patio, grill, and backyard. Upstairs, the room is exclusively yours. The bathroom is only shared with guests staying our secondary guest room (also listed on Airbnb).

Our two dogs, Sophia and Rimshot, mostly roam downstairs or in our room. They are not allowed in your guest room or bathroom...unless, of course, you invite them in. They can be quite the snugglers.

Interaction with Guests

Our schedules don't always allow us to meet our guests, so our check-in and checkout procedure are designed to get you in and out without our help. We love getting to know our guests when we're home, but we'll respect your privacy if that's what you prefer.

The Neighborhood

TOO MANY recommendations to list here - check out our listing's guidebook for some of our favorites.

East Nashville is a perfect combination of creative expression and proud local culture. It's cheap enough for the most aspiring (broke) of the creatives to live, and the restaurants and shops are the beneficiary of its residents' drive, passion, and style.

But right next door is Nashville's bread and butter - country music. Downtown is home to honky-tonk, with the Broadway strip overflowing with bars and live music nightly. Top it off with throwbacks to the greats at the Country Music Hall of Fame and the newly opened Johnny Cash Museum, and downtown is a well-rounded musician's dream.

Getting around

Nashville MTA runs a route off Dickerson Pike, one block from our house. Their website has extensive details on destinations and route times.

Uber, a locally-driven cab service (no pun intended...) has great rates and quick turnaround times. Check out the mobile phone app.

For the trekkers on foot, the heart of downtown (5th and Broadway) is a straight shot 25-30 minute walk. East Nashville is a bit more spread out, and there are still uninviting blocks sprinkled throughout the area. Not scary enough to not walk, but enough to recommend other transportation to and from.

Other Things to Note

We recommend using our filtered water in the fridge instead of the tap. Bring your own groceries and cook in our kitchen or grill on the deck if you'd like. All we ask is you clean up after yourself.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Stephen and Cassidy are fantastic hosts, and their house is adorable. They were very helpful in pointing out places to go in East Nashville, the room was well kept and cozy, and their dogs are very sweet. Overall a great experience!

  • Great house, bedroom beautifully decorated, super clean and near fun east Nashville. We'd recommend this house highly!

    April 2014
  • Unable to meet Stephen as he was out of town but he did call to make sure I arrived ok and was settled in. Met his wife Cassidy who was very pleasant and suggested nearby dining options. Nice home with very comfortable bedroom. Also very quiet. Both of their dogs were a delight and I spent the evening playing with them. Easy access off interstate. Will stay again when traveling through Nashville.

  • Great stay at Chez Lynch; well-communicated and easy entry procedure, and lovely welcome from the two dogs, who couldn't have been friendlier or more snuggly during my stay! Great light and bright room, with an extraordinarily comfy bed, and access to a shared bathroom with great water pressure. Everything was spotless. (Option to lock the bedroom door was appreciated.) The house is in a great location, with easy access to the main routes, and lots of street parking. Beautiful home (I've definitely picked up some design tips!) and I'd definitely stay again when I come back to Nashville.

  • The Lynch's cozy cottage was wonderful. Exactly like the pictures. Although, I didn't get to meet the host they left very helpful instructions and suggestions.

  • What a superb way to begin our Deep South road trip and first air bnb experience! Stephen and Cassie were wonderful hosts from the get go. We were welcomed on our first night with 4 smiling faces (Sophia and Rimshot being the furry 3rd and 4th members of the household) and plenty of excellent recommendations and advise on visiting Nashville - our personal favourite being Cassie's choice of Mexican restaurant, Mas Tacos (a place we would have never found left to our own devices!)

    The house was exceptionally well kept and clean. Felt like a home rather than just a place to sleep. Our room was just the right size for 2 people and we both slept like babies on that super comfy bed!

    Thanks for a brilliant few days. It was lovely to spend some time with you and we're looking forward to you visiting Europe.

  • We had a great stay with Stephen and Cassidy! They were prompt in communication from booking through the whole stay. Their home is quite lovely, both clean and inviting The bed is incredibly comfortable! Their dogs are super sweet and friendly. Our hosts had great recommendations, although we did not have enough time to take advantage of everything. I would love to stay here again if I get back to Nashville!

    March 2014
  • Absolutely gorgeous place, better than a hotel anyday! Stephen and Cassidy were thankfully able to accommodate to my last minute booking request. All messages and calls were answered quickly and promptly. Check in was fine, the room is very clean and well dressed. Be aware there are two dogs and a room adjacent for other Airbnb'ers, so you may find yourself making new friends aswell.

    March 2014
  • Stephen and Cassidy were perfect hosts and we had a great stay at their beautiful home. My boyfriend and I booked the room only hours before our arrival, and they were ready for us and had great communication. They are a friendly and accommodating couple, and we loved their two adorable dogs. This was the perfect place to stay in Nashville, highly recommended!

    March 2014
  • We only stayed brief time but really enjoyed the stay. Stephen and his wife were very welcoming and their dogs were adorable. The rooms were just as described and very comfortable. We only wish we had a longer time to stay and appreciate the area.

Wedding Photographer + Traveling Musician
Hey! We are Stephen and Cassidy Lynch - newlyweds as of Sept 15, 2012. We're native to Louisiana, but we've called Nashville our home since January 2011. As a traveling musician and wedding photographer, we find ourselves on the road quite a bit. We think the best hosts are the ones that make the space feel like home, and that's certainly what we look for/try to provide in our own space.
