Our renovated 50's era home in East Nashville has its own 3/4 acre lake in the front yard. Your room opens on to a deck where you can sit and enjoy our private little park only 3.5 miles from downtown.
Our home is situated on 2 acres but in an urban neighborhood. We are 3 1/2 miles from downtown and about a mile from 5 points, located in the historic Lockeland Springs neighborhood. East Nashville has so many great restaurants that you really don't have to leave this part of town, and several popular ones (Silly Goose, Wild Cow, Rosepepper & Family Wash) are within an easy walking distance. We are close to I-24 and Ellington Pkwy which allow you to go just about anywhere in Nashville in about 20 minutes. And are also only minutes from Titan Stadium.
Your room has a private entrance and it's own private bath but we also have a lovely screened in porch that is a great place to just chill if you'd like to join us. The porch also has a fireplace that allows use of the porch except on the most bitter winter days. We have several types of boats that you will are welcome to enjoy during your stay or you can even do a little fishing. We have lots of places outside to sit and just enjoy doing nothing. Your room has a flat screen TV, a desk/dressing table and a small fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker for your convenience with basic breakfast needs. Limited use of the kitchen is okay, just leave it tidy when done. We can accommodate two very comfortably. We have a washer and dryer that you can use as well as an iron and ironing board. Just let one of us know and we will show you where everything is located.
Interaction with Guests
We love sharing our home and will interact as much or as little as you like. We do work part time but usually one of us is at home. We share our home with our terrier Louie who barks at anyone coming in, including us. Our African Grey Koko and Amazon Sassy, aka our alarm clocks, can be very entertaining and they like to show off, but not be touched.
Our 50's era neighborhood is a short walk to the greenway that runs along the Cumberland River. Our home is located behind Shelby Park where you can fish for trout, play a round of golf or go and watch a baseball game and it's all within walking distance. We get many walkers and runners going by because of the lake and it is a friendly and safe neighborhood.
There is a bus stop 3 blocks from our home that can connect you to downtown. We have parking for several cars at our home and would love to share some of the fun places we know about for you to check out.
No smoking of any kind in the house please. We are both pretty laid back people and other than the smoking we only ask that you respect our home. If you do need to use the kitchen, please clean up after yourself. Please park your car in the side parking area so that it doesn't block the garage.
We felt very welcome with Cathryne and David. They gave us a tour of their home and gave us some advice about how to enjoy our stay in Nashville (too bad we were there for business and didn't get to take as much of their advice as we would have liked). Very friendly couple. Good conversation. We would absolutely stay there again the next time we're in town.
Cathryne and David were great hosts! We very much enjoyed our stay. Their property is beautiful and welcoming. Our room was perfect and complete with everything we could possibly need. This will definitely be our go to place to stay when we visit Nashville.
Nashville was awesome and the neighborhood that the house is in is great. The lake out front is gorgeous but smaller than I thought. We have a great time and it was the perfect setting. Thanks Cathryne and David.
The hosts were so gracious and invited us to join them on their beautiful porch. The room has a beautiful view over a small lake, in a very quiet, pretty neighborhood that seems far removed from the bustling city.
We had a wonderful stay at Cathryne and David's home. Their custom home has a dramatic view of their lake. Our room & bath was beautifully decorated with excellent bedding and a private entrance. Their hospitality was genuine. We felt as if we were visiting friends. Their home was 4 miles or a 12 minute drive to downtown Nashville. They are near a large park with two golf courses. The East Nashville area abounds with eclectic restaurants. A great and comfortable spot to make your headquarters when visiting Nashville.
Our experience was wonderful! Our room was private and comfortable and Cathryne & David are wonderful people!

We are from South Florida and the Bahamas originally. We moved to Nashville after selling our architectural stained glass business in 2000. In 2001 we found our dream property and we knew we could remodel the house into our dream home, which we did in 2008. We enjoy having friends and family over on a regular basis for dinner, wine on the porch or just chatting. We travel when we can but when you live in a park its really hard to leave.
