There is one small step up into the bathroom area. The bathroom has plenty of room for two people.

There are many places to store your things on shelves, in the armoire and in the closet.
If you need something extra for your stay please ask. I will do my best to accommodate you with basic needs and please don't hesitate to ask me.

WHERE THE ART HAPPENS
I work in my art studio which is in a separate building behind my home on the same property. If you you are curious and want to come see the studio or take an art lesson just let me know ahead of time. I've had many people do this while staying here and have photos in the profile for you to view some of the art people created. I can provide art experiences for anyone from novice on. An art session in the studio. 2 -4 hours minimum.

I've taught for many years and capable of teaching art of many interesting genres or mediums including mixed media, acrylics and all kinds of paper. If you are interested in creating art on your own or learning from me I'd be happy to talk with you about what you'd like to do or study on.

The meaning of the name of my art studio is Paper Cat Studio and the AirBnB space used to be my art studio before I built my larger studio behind the home. I have 3 kitties and they love to visit my studio and nest in my "art papers." Lily in particular is my sidekick/muse in the studio most of the day. She loves to nestle in the papers that I create with in my art work.

I do have 3 sweet cats and one of them is very friendly, Lily who will introduce herself to you. The other two cats stay to themselves, they are not allowed in the guest suite.

Guest access
There are plently of places on the grounds for you to relax. I have a beautiful peaceful back deck and front porch where guests are welcome to relax, sit have a glass of wine and or read. There is a fire-pit for cooler weather use. Feel free to walk around the yard and neighborhood. The neighborhood is a great place to walk, run or ride a bike.
If you stay longer and need access to the washer/dryer, that is avaiable for your stay.

Other things to note
Cats may be outside wandering the yard, you may interact with them as you see fit and they might interact with you if they see fit! Come say, Come sa!
IT'S DARK OUT HERE
It can be dark on the grounds at night because we don't have street lights thus, another reason why it feels like you are in the country!

Bellevue, Nashville, Tennessee

My neighborhood was settled in 1790 and is called Newsom Station because of an old mill which was a trading post on the Harpeth River. The site of the old mill is within walking distance of my home at the end of the street. There is a day-only state park. You can see the ruins of the old mill there. You can drop in your kayak or fish at different places just a few minutes away. If your an avid bike rider you can take a bike ride directly from the house here.

There are plenty of things to do in this area of town, such as:
- The new ONE BELLEVUE PLACE mall with an organic grocery store, various eateries, movie theatre and shops are all within 5 minutes.
- The Natchez Trace is 3 miles from my home along with
- World famous Loveless Cafe and Shimai Art Gallery, same location. 6miles My art is shown in this gallery.
- Purchase Tennessee artisans work at Mud Puddle Pottery, 5 miles (highly recommended)
- Listen to local fiddlers at Fiddle n'Pick. 5 miles
- Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Mansion
- Belle Meade Plantation museum/winery
- Historical places such as the Battle at Franklin and Leipers Fork both within 20-30 minutes

If you a nature lover and love to hike, bike, canoe, kayak or zip-line:
- Harpeth River is minutes away including The Narrows of the Harpeth and Tip-A-Canoe both have canoe and kayak rental.
- Edwin Warner and Percy Warner Parks
- Montgomery State Park
- Newsom's Mill State Park (walking distance from my home)
- Hidden Lake State Park ( 5 minute drive from house)

Hello! My name is Lisa. I've lived in TN most of my life. It is truly the place I call home because of the soft beauty of the rolling hills. I'm a full time artist making my living with my paintings and sculpture. I am avid outdoor person and have a fondness for watching birds. Any where I travel I love to visit the state/national parks, botanical gardens, museums and shops. My goal is to start traveling the great USA through the backroads and old towns. My motto is If you get-give, If you give you receive!
