The Space

Retro Ranch is in a quiet area of the hip East side - close to great locally owned shops, restaurants & bars.

This room is furnished with a QUEEN bed and PRIVATE 1/2 bath. Tub/shower in hall bath.

An experienced host, I've been with Airbnb since 2010. I have lived in East Nashville since 2005.

I offer guests a detailed map & guide to Nashville and curated suggestions for the best coffee shops, bars, breweries, music venues, festivals, vintage & thrift, record shops, hiking, and dining options from farm to table fresh to dives and hidden gems, including gluten free & vegan dining options.

You'll be minutes from great local shopping, dining and bars in Five Points, Riverside Village, Eastland & Porter and about 10-15 minutes from downtown Nashville and the Opryland Convention Center.

This 3-bedroom 1960s style ranch house is colorfully decorated with retro furnishings and decor, nestled in a quiet, wooded neighborhood, less than a block from a winding nature path along the Cumberland River.

Originally from Chicago, I moved to Nashville in 2000 years ago and bought this home in 2005. I am a professional photographer with a friendly little dog, who would be happy to show you her tricks! I love the diverse and thriving music scene here in Nashville, the fine arts, food, vintage finds, and the beauty of Tennessee, hiking, rivers, and waterfalls...

Your Host



Nashville, Tennessee, United States · Member since February 2010

I have been an Airbnb host for 5 years, and I'm very fortunate to have met so many wonderful people from all over the world!

I am a creative professional who loves photography, music, great food, the arts, architecture, swing dancing (lindy hop, shag, balboa), the outdoors (trails, rivers, lakes), and urban travel. I've been in Nashville since 2000, originally from Chicago. I bought my East Nashville home in 2005, and I love seeing our eclectic neighborhood evolve and thrive with locally-owned restaurants and new businesses.

I've always enjoyed staying in B&Bs and places off the beaten path, when I travel. Airbnb has been a great way to meet interesting and like-minded travelers from all over the world!

Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to your visit!
