About This Listing
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 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.
This is our second Airbnb experience. It will be very difficult to have a better one! The place was beautiful and the room was clean with everything we needed. Cathryne and David were great hosts and they looked much younger (and taller) than the picture :-) David made great French toasts, too. Staying in this place and chatting with Cathryne and David made us re-think a lot of things happened in our lives and what may happen ahead of us. We were lucky to be with them. Thanks!
Cathryne & David were so hospitable they made me feel right at home for my first airbnb reservation. It was very comfortable and the space had everything you might want from the fridge to microwave. They were very kind and went out of their way to make my first visit to Nashville a memorable one. Thanks a million Cathryne and David, I appreciate your hospitality.
Everything was wonderful! Cathryne and David were so hospitable, and their house is gorgeous. They were very communicative about check-in, and everything went smooth as butter. The rental space is perfect for two people. It was so comfortable and was everything we needed for our weekend getaway. There is a separate entrance, which is also nice because we didn't feel like we were bothering them coming in and out. The location is perfect, too -- close to everything in East Nashville and easy to get everywhere else. We would definitely stay here again! Great price, beautiful accommodations, and wonderful people! Thanks again for the hospitality!
If anything the site can only be said to be understated as to how nice it is. Neighborhood contains many Craftsman homes and while already nice is on an upward swing to a place any one would love to live. What more could you give your wife but a visit with Cathy and David. Such warm host, a private room in a 5 star home with garden and lake at doorstep. The after sightseeing evening conversations with two most delightful folks. There is no way I can give the praise David and Cathryne deserve.
We had a fabulous time in Nashville, made all the better by David and Cathryne's hospitality! Before we even arrived Cathryne sent restaurant suggestions and excellent directions to the house. The bed was amazingly comfortable and you can't beat the view from the front deck. One of the best parts was having a quiet retreat to return to after a long day of seeing the sites. We would return tomorrow!
Wow...I'm so glad I spent the last two days of my Nashville trip at Cathryne and David's incredible property. The site and aspect of the house is unique...even though you are not so far away from things (walking distance to Rosepepper's Cantina) it felt very, very secluded. The mature trees and view overlooking the lake is spectacular...when you are here you really feel like you are in nature. There is koi and bass in the lake and an endless parade of lovely birds.
There are lovely birds inside the house also...two beautiful parrots Sassy and Coco. The house itself is also very unique...really magazine-ready and beautifully appointed. Look out for the glass art that was done by Cathryne. The guest space is spacious and contained many amenities, including Keurig coffee maker.
You can expect gracious hospitality from the hosts...this is a house they built with love and they are justifiably proud of it!
We enjoyed our stay at this location - perfect for access to the City and to get to the Rock n Roll Marathon finish and parking area

About the Host, Cathryne & David
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.
