The Space

Located in the popular East Nashville neighborhood a hidden garden oasis awaits you as you enter the courtyard through your completely 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 in the alley behind the main home.

Your stay will leave you in want of nothing else except to explore 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

When you first arrive we will be here to greet you to show you your way in. Afterwards 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.

Getting around

If you prefer not to drive, the public transit system is 2 blocks away.

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 300 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was a wonderful cottage. Peaceful and beautifully kept. Just the right size for 2 people. Shower was tight, but that was very minor compared to the rest of the house. Kitchen was good sized and modern. Although no dish washer. but for 2 people doesn't matter. Had just enough room in kitchen area for 3 people and 1 toddler to sit down for dinner. Living room/bedroom area was nice sized.Bathroom was large other than shower. Garden area outside of house is very well kept up and restful. has porch with small table for meals. We stayed a week and were very comfortable even when my daughter and grandson came to visit.
    Cynthia was very friendly and helpful
    It is very close to restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores in East Nashville.
    We would highly recommend it.

  • We stayed at this little guesthouse for 2 nights while I was attending a conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. I was very pleased, it was roomy, very clean and very cute. Very comfortable bed! It was a really nice alternative to a sterile hotel environment. Cynthia was as accessible as we needed her to be, but not intrusive. Helpful and very accommodating. I felt pampered. I would rather stay here any day than go to a hotel. Thanks for your hospitality!

  • This cute and cozy cottage exceeded our expectations. It was just what we hoped for. Private and well equipped. Location was great for walking in the evenings. Hosts are friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. Upon returning to Nashville we would hope this spot would be available again!

  • Craig & Cynthia's cottage is the perfect couple getaway and is exactly how it's described...cozy! We did not get to meet Craig but Cynthia (email hidden) and was very accomodating to our arriving a little early. We had a nice meeting and chat when we arrived and felt very comfortable. Cynthia gave us suggestions on things to do, places to eat and there's even a park right down the street! As we got settled, we noticed bananas in the kitchen and juice and english muffins in the fridge...what a sweet gesture! And this cottage has all of the comforts of home. So if you're planning to visit Nashville and you want something close enough to Downtown (just a little over 2 miles) but quiet, peaceful and priced right, this is the place for you. If we make it back to Nashville, we would definitely think of Craig & Cynthia!

  • (email hidden)!! We visited Nashville for our 30th wedding anniversary and were looking for something a little more private and personal than a hotel. This was it!! It's a short drive to downtown but also in close proximity to the East Nashville area restaurants and bars. Craig and Cynthia were great hosts and offered lots of great suggestions! Highly recommend this cozy cottage and we would definitely stay here again!

  • We were extremely pleased with our stay with Craig & Cynthia. They were very great hosts and the property is beautiful! It was a nice little country oasis so close to downtown. Craig & Cynthia were there to welcome us to the area and walk through the cottage. Cynthia had great tips on where to eat, grab a beer, and little details to make sure we had the best trip. The cottage is great for a couple's getaway and it is in a beautiful neighborhood. It was safe, quiet, and within walking distance to a nice park.

  • Cynthia and Craig were THE BEST! They gave great recommendations, both must-do's and more off the map options, for food, music, shopping, and the outdoors in multiple neighborhoods. Their cottage was cozy and clean, with a great back entrance and parking spot. They were super helpful, communicative, and made our stay memorable. When I accidentally left some hair products in the bathroom, Cynthia shipped them to me ASAP. The property itself was beautiful and peaceful with lots of flowers and plants. Coumfy bed was a plus!

  • We had a wonderful experience at Craig and Cynthia's cottage. It is very nicely furnished and cozy. Cynthia left us a wealth of information on Nashville, places to see, eat and listen to live music. We had a great time in Nashville and hope to return someday. We will definitely stay at Craig and Cynthia's cottage.

  • Just loved this place! The cottage was lovely, really well decorated inside and stocked or our every need. Really enjoyed the area too, a stones through from the beautiful Shelby Park.
    As for our hosts Craig & Cynthia- they were amazing! Friendly and helpful, always happy to give us recommendations (not just for Nashville but for other stops on our trips) and them and their cottage greatly contributed to why Nashvile was our favourite place on our roadtrip. We'll be back!
    Thanks again xx
