The space

Located in the popular East Nashville neighborhood a hidden garden oasis awaits you as you enter the courtyard through your private entrance. The guest cottage was originally a railroad workers home and one of the oldest structures in the neighborhood. Built in the mid 1800’s, the now renovated cottage is a unique hideaway close to downtown and reflects a love of art, gardening and the comforts of your “home away from home”. It is perfect for a single person or couple to enjoy a restful and cozy environment after a full day of visiting Music City.

The guest cottage is run by two culturally experienced, open-minded, world travelers who offer a practical, comfortable and inspired visit for people who, given the correct amenities and location, prefer to take care of themselves.

The cottage features it's own separate entrance from the alley behind the main home. Once inside, there is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, wireless TV with cable, internet access, a newly remodeled bathroom with large tiled shower and new hardwood floors throughout. All this makes a comfortable and quiet place for you to relax in after exploring the sights and sounds of what is nicknamed "Nashvegas".

So come on and be our guest and experience the old and new Nashville!

Interaction with guests

Before you arrive you will be given directions to the cottage and the code for the keyless entry. We are just a text or phone call away in the event you need anything or have any questions while you enjoy your stay.

The neighborhood

The cottage is located in the most popular neighborhood in Nashville and just minutes away from downtown and lower Broadway’s famous Honky Tonks and the world famous Ryman Auditorium. You are also a short drive to the many hip restaurants, coffee shops and local drinking establishments near our historic “5 Points” neighborhood in East Nashville. A block away is the park. Take a walk or rent a B-Cycle and enjoy the miles of trails along the Cumberland river. Here for a game? We are minutes away from Titan Stadium.
We have put together some suggestions of restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood that you will find in the cottage.

Getting around

There is off street parking for your car near the entrance of the cottage.

If you prefer not to drive, the public transit system is 2 blocks away although a car is recommended in Nashville.

Some guests choose to use Uber and Lyft rather than the bus.

The cottage is just under 4 miles to I-24 making it an easy access to venture out and tour other parts of Nashville and/or drop in on the many music venues all within 10 to 15 minutes from your cottage.

We are located just blocks from the Music City Bikeway which has direct access to downtown.

Enjoy a stroll, run or bike ride through Shelby Bottoms Park located just one block from your front door. The park offers over 960 acres of wetlands and trails that run along the Cumberland River where you might catch sight of the General Jackson Showboat chugging down the river.

There is also Vinny Links golf course nearby.

On the other side of the Cumberland is the Grand Ole Opry. Take in a concert or go shopping at the Opry Mills Mall but don’t miss a walk through the spectacular atrium at the Opryland Hotel which is free and all are located within the same vicinity.

Nashville's airport is also easily accessible and less than 9 miles (approx. 16 minutes) from the guest cottage.

Had a wonderful stay in the cottage. Craig met me to check in and was a very gracious and welcoming host. The cottage was super cute! Perfectly decorated and the porch was amazing. Good location. Only a $7 Uber to downtown and could walk to the Post (a great little coffee shop). Highly recommend this as a relaxing/charming place to stay when visiting Nashville!

Craig was very friendly and accommodating and offered us an early check in. He met us there, showed us around the place and gave advice about our visit to Nashville. The place was nicely decorated and was extremely clean. The location is very close to all the downtown attractions. We had a great time and would stay there again.

We had a great stay at the cottage. Craig personally met us at check-in on Thanksgiving afternoon and made sure we settled in and gave us all the info we needed. The house was well stocked and unbelievably clean... seriously, it cannot be overstated how spotless it was. The neighborhood is quiet, but you can be at any number of great bars or restaurants in a few minutes by car. We highly recommend the cottage and will definitely be back. Thanks Craig!
