About this listing

This house just had its 100th anniversary, but has had tons of updates to keep it fresh. It's on a quiet street, but is an easy walk to Five Points and just 2 miles from downtown.

The Space

This bedroom has a comfy full-sized bed that rests in an alcove between closets. It has a private entrance off the front porch where you can have a morning coffee. There is plenty of room to hang clothes or to put them in the antique chest of drawers. The original hardwood floors and high ceilings will remind you that they really don't make them like this anymore. The guest bathroom takes a fresh twist to vintage styling and comes with towels, soaps and bath robes. The bathroom features a clawfoot tub that's just the place for a long soak or shower.

Also, this space is better-suited to people 18 and up. Nashville law requires that the primary renter be over 21.

Guest Access

Guests are welcome to use the whole house (aside from the master suite and basement). You're free to use the WiFi. There is no cable, but I do have Netflix. Make yourself a cup of coffee, or head to the end of the block for a gourmet coffee at Barista Parlor. Try out the deck or patio or porch. Discover the secret garden (the worst kept secret in East Nashville). You're welcome to pop some clothes in the washer/dryer.

Interaction with Guests

I will be present when guests are staying over and am glad to go with the flow of what you need. If you want to get the lay of the land, I'm your man. Also happy to give you your space.

I've travelled all over the world and am excited to be able to host some people visiting my town. This home and East Nashville are LGBT friendly.

The Neighborhood

Within a 10 minute walk of this house are Five Points, Margot's Cafe (on the cusp of the farm-to-table movement), Barista Parlor, Pharmacy Burgers, greasy diners, dive bars, upscale dining, seriously good local coffee, 3 grocery stores, and more hipsters than a vinyl store. (One of those is 2 blocks away.) Downtown Nashville is just 2 miles down the road and Titans Stadium is even closer. Oh, and the greenways, tennis courts, and golf can be accessed 2 miles away on the river at Shelby Bottoms.

Getting Around

The bus stops at the end of the street (a block away). The house has street parking in front and let's face it--that's still the best way to get around Nashville. The easiest way to get here from the airport is by taxi, Lyft, or Uber (about $25)

Other Things to Note

* During December, I put up a real Christmas tree, so if you have allergies to fir, this might not be a good choice for you.

* Nashville codes do not allow me to serve food, so I guess this is better described as "Airb."
