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.

  • I would absolutely recommend staying with Stephen and Cassidy! Their home is so beautiful and clean. Downtown and east Nashville are a short car ride away.

  • Stephen and Cassidy's home is absolutely adorable. We never had the opportunity to meet them, but we did get to meet their friend Allie, who is also staying with them. The room is cozy and clean...very comfortable bed. There are also two energetic, friendly dogs. Super nice : )

  • Stephen and Cassidy's home was wonderful. It was really nice to be so close to downtown! We had a great stay and Stephen was great at responding to my requests for restaurant recommendations. We were very happy with our stay with them and would definitely stay again!

  • We had a great stay at Stephen and Cassidy's home. Unfortunately we didn't get chance to meet, all prior communication was great and we met their fried Allie who was staying in the house and she was very helpful and lovely. The dogs are very cute! The house is beautifully decorated and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We walked into town, it took about 30 minutes and we got a cab back that cost about 9 dollars which was very cheap. We loved Nashville and will be visiting again in the future.

  • We stayed with Stephen for 3 nights. We only had the chance to meet him for about 10 mins because we were so busy. He was very nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean and their decor was neat. I have nothing bad to say about this stay. We walked downtown and it took us 30 mins to walk right Into the heart of CMAfest. It was simple to get downtown. There was ample parking. We would stay here again! Thanks Stephen :-)

  • Stephen and Cassidy are great hosts. As a first time user of Airbnb they made me and my girlfriend feel welcome in their home (which is by the way beautifully decorated). They have two dogs, a small one and a very playful slightly bigger one. Don't be scared, they might bark a bit but they are harmless and well trained.

    The hotspots are minutes away by car and there is ample parking on the street in front of the house. Downtown parking is slightly pricy so you might be happier calling a cab

  • We had a great time in Nashville! Cassie was very welcoming and the house was beautiful!

  • The room was cozy. The house was beautiful and parking was ample. Cassidy is a delight. I wasn't in the house much just because of my schedule but would definitely recommend this listing.

  • We had a great stay in Stephen's double guest bedroom. The house is lovely, impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. It's five minutes away from downtown by car, could not be easier to go see the sights. The dogs were both very sweet and super friendly.

    Stephen could not have been more helpful on our arrival, and check in/out was very easy. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • It was an absolute delight to stay at Stephen and Cassidy's home! My friend and I felt both welcome and comfortable.

    One consideration with this location is familiarizing yourself with the Uber app in Nashville, as the location is not quite walking distance to East Nashville or downtown. However, being tucked away at this sweet home was the perfect reprieve at the end of a long day of exploring the city.

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.
