The Space

Summer is here and Nashville is rockin'! If you're looking for all the comforts of home and a place to spread out and truly relax between the sightseeing and nightlife, this is your place. Perfect for groups of up to four.

Welcome to Music City USA! This 1,000 square foot, two bedroom, one bath unit with full kitchen, living room and all the amenities of home is ideal for a couple, family or group of friends. If you're looking for an alternative to pricey downtown hotels and parking, look east. Inglewood is a leafy, peaceful neighborhood along the Cumberland River just north of East Nashville, the heart of Nashville's creative community and home to many of our writers, artists and musicians.

It is located exactly 7 miles from the heart of downtown (the Lower Broadway honky-tonk district). This is a driving town, but transportation alternatives to driving at night include taxis and the app-based ride services Lyft and UberX, which just came to Nashville in late 2013. (Read on for transport tips)

This is a self-contained apartment with room for up to four ($25/night per person over 4), off-street parking and two separate entrances. (I live next door.) French doors off the kitchen lead to a large deck with a charcoal grill for cooking out. Inside are two tastefully-furnished bedrooms with quality beds (one queen and one double), tiled bathroom with tub/shower, kitchen with gas stove, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, electric teakettle and a 200 sq ft living room with comfy furnishings and "smart" HDTV with digital cable and direct streaming of Netflix and Hulu. Wi-fi throughout. All linens and kitchen/dining supplies provided, with coffee, tea, breakfast foods (eggs, bread or bagels, butter, yogurt, oatmeal), pasta, snacks and condiments.

Your home base in Nashville is on a peaceful street in the Inglewood/ Riverwood section of fun, funky East Nashville. Moss Rose Drive is tucked along the Cumberland River, with trailhead access at the end of the street to Shelby Bottoms and the Shelby Greenway, popular with walkers, runners, dog walkers and cyclists. Cost per night is total; there are no cleaning or other add-on fees. (For guests with mobility issues, this is a one-level dwelling with flat, even surfaces from the drive to entry and all through the house. Two sets of French doors allow for easy entry.)

It's an easy drive to the restaurants and clubs of the Eastside, where resident A-list musicians play pick-up gigs on a regular basis, or head downtown for a night of honky-tonkin' at Robert's Western World. One mile from Riverside Village, which has the Village Pub (hearty pub food), Mitchell's Deli, Watanabe (sushi), Castrillo's Pizza and Sip Cafe. Close proximity to The Family Wash (live music, beer and comfort food), The Rosepepper Cafe (Mexican), Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Ugly Mugs (coffee), Wild Cow (gourmet vegetarian), the Silly Goose (locally sourced casual), and Eastland Cafe and Lockeland Table (fine casual, great happy hours.) A Kroger supermarket and drugstores are nearby, as well as a deli/market and natural foods store. Five Points and its many independent shops, bars and restaurants for all tastes are a short drive away. Lower Broadway, the heart of downtown Nashville is exactly 7 miles away, accessible by Gallatin Road (straightest route), Ellington Parkway (fastest route) or I-65. You will need a car; Nashville's public transportation is very limited and the only truly walkable neighborhoods in town in terms of pedestrian access to shops, restaurants and nightlife are Hillsboro Village, 12th South and Five Points.

*** I do accept one-night bookings but mostly to fill in dates during week. Due to demand for weekends, especially in the summer, I try to keep the weekends reserved for longer stays. Thank you! ***

GETTING AROUND NASHVILLE:

*** Nashville now has Lyft and Uber ride-share services, in addition to taxis. Taxis take forever to get to East Nashville, so the best alternate transport is Lyft. Just download the Lyft app for your smartphone, connect it to your (website hidden) profile, load in a bank card and you're good to go. If you're a first time user, I have codes you can enter to get a $25 credit toward rides.

If you drive downtown to visit the attractions and Lower Broadway honky-tonks, the absolute cheapest and most convenient place to park is the Nashville Public Library garage, just around the corner from the Ryman Auditorium and two blocks off Lower Broad. It's $10 maximum for the day, or $5 for the night after 6 pm Monday through Friday. (Compare this to $24 and up for most surface lots in Nashville.) There are two entrances, on the east and west sides of the library between 6th and 7th Avenues North (cross streets are Church and Commerce Streets). The garage is attached by skybridge to the Renaissance Hotel tower so just look up in the skyline for the Renaissance sign. If you go during library hours, you can stamp your ticket at the checkout stand and pay even less.

WHAT TO DO:

Here are a few of my picks for "best-ofs" and "must-dos" when in Nashville. All listings are locally-owned establishments (except in the grocery and mall categories).

Country music fans: The must-dos are spending a night on Lower Broadway ducking in and out of honky-tonks (please tip the bands!); touring The Ryman Auditorium and maybe catching a show there; seeing the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum (be sure to take the add-on tour of historic RCA Studio B); going to a singer-songwriter night at the Bluebird Café; and seeing the Grand Ole Opry live. Check (website hidden) for Opry schedules; shows are held at both the Ryman downtown and at the Opry House just across the river. Also, the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree broadcasts live Saturdays at midnight at 2416 Music Valley Drive (across the river near Opryland).

On Monday through Friday mornings you can sit in as Storme Warren hosts country radio shows on Sirius XM. Our SXM studio is located downtown in the "radio tower" at Bridgestone Arena (it's also Nashville's official visitors center location, staffed by very friendly people ready to help you plan your visit.) The show is live from 6 am to 10 am; the best time to go is 8-10 am.

Best honky-tonk: Robert's Western World on Lower Broadway consistently books outstanding bands playing traditional country from 11 am to 2 am daily (with an occasional rockabilly band thrown in.) Check out Don Kelley, Rachael Hester and Sarah Gayle Meech; their bands feature some of the best musicians in town (band schedule on the bar's website.) On Sunday mornings, Rev. Ron Blakely hosts a non-denominational gospel and fellowship service at Robert’s from (phone number hidden), complete with band.

Downtown walking tour: My friend Bill DeMain, a musician and music writer, hosts a very enjoyable 90 minute “Walkin' Nashville” walking tour of downtown. Bill has stories you won’t hear anywhere else. From APRIL - OCTOBER, tours run Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. From NOVEMBER - MARCH, tours run Friday & Saturday only. They start at 10:30 AM sharp and last about 2 hours. Adults 12 and up $18/Children 4-11 $11/3 & Under Free. Find Walkin' Nashville on (website hidden) or on the web to book.

Also, Ellen Sevier, descendant of Tennessee's first governor John Sevier, runs a history/eating tour of downtown called Music City Bites and Sites. It runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday in season from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm. Cost is $49 per person + tax and includes stops at five eateries. Check her website to book.

Southern history/plantation, garden and art tours: We have some wonderful plantations and estates that make a perfect afternoon of exploring Southern history. Belle Meade Plantation is an historic estate set in a tony Nashville neighborhood; it has a great casual restaurant called Martha's. The Cheekwood estate has fabulous botanical gardens and many special events including art installations on the beautiful grounds. Cheekwood is located in town. For history buffs, The Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson's estate, is located just north of Nashville in Old Hickory, and is a fantastic living history museum that is really fun and educational for kids and adults. They have top-notch programs that bring the era to life. All of these are in or near town, worth the while and highly recommended. If you're a serious history buff, head south to Franklin; here you'll find Civil War sites and trails, the beautiful Carnton Plantation and many examples of plantation/antebellum homes. Plan to spend the afternoon or evening on historic Franklin's very walkable Main Street, home to upscale shops and restaurants and a beautifully restored theatre that hosts great concerts.

Shopping Saturday among the vintage stores and boutiques in Nashville’s walkable neighborhoods: Start your day in East Nashville’s Five Points area. Brunch or lunch is delicious at Marché, then hit Hip Zipper for Nashville’s largest selection of retro/vintage clothing and accessories (when Taylor Swift wants to wear a vintage dress, her stylist calls here). Stop by GoodBuy Girls for vintage boots and clothes, and Alegria right behind it for a well-chosen selection of accessories. Wonders on Woodland a couple of doors down has great vintage/retro home décor. Head to 12th South, a thriving walkable neighborhood strip to Katy K’s Ranch Dressing, Nashville’s original stop for authentic vintage Western and pin-up wear. This is the place to get your spangles on Porter-and-Dolly style, or to build your Bettie Page look! Drop by Serendipity Emporium, a well-edited boutique with great summer dresses and a 50% off room. Relax with lunch on the patio at Burger Up or Frothy Monkey (coffee and sandwiches), followed by a Mexican popsicle at Las Paletas. If you’re still in the area by evening, 12th South Taproom often has music – always good – and a large patio, a great selection of beers and a surprisingly good menu.

Artifacts and artisan goods: Spend an afternoon browsing the shops of Marathon Village, an old automobile factory complex containing Antique Archaeology, owned by American Pickers star Mike Wolfe); Peter Nappi, a high-end hand-crafted leather goods store; The Bang Candy Company gourmet confections and cafe; and the Corsair Distillery, which is open for tours and tasting.

Sunday night entertainment: Chris Scruggs & Friends at The Stone Fox (51st off Charlotte Ave.) Chris is the grandson of bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs and when he's not on the road he plays old-time country on Sundays with fabulous musicians such as Buddy Spicher on fiddle and Pete Finney on steel guitar sitting in. Free.

Monday night: The best way to spend your Monday night is to see Vince Gill and The Time Jumpers' weekly Western swing show at 9 pm at 3rd & Lindsley (go early for a table). Also, Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart's guitar player) plays a free late show with his blues trio (including Dave Roe, Johnny Cash's bass player and Jeff Clemens, the drummer for G Love & Special Sauce) at 12th South Taproom from 9 pm to 11. If you don't feel like crossing town, just one mile away the Village Pub has Mule Monday, serving $3 mules (ginger beer and a shot of your choice of liquor) until 10 pm.

Tuesday night entertainment: $10 Pint & Pie Night at East Nashville's Family Wash (a former laundromat, hence the name) gets you one of the Wash's locally famous shepherd's pies and a pint of your choice of beer. Beginning at 8 you can hear Short Sets, the Wash's long-running singer-songwriter series.

Wednesday night entertainment: At 7 p.m. it’s Music City Roots live at the Loveless Barn, a bit of a drive but worth it for fantastic Americana, bluegrass and roots music programming every Wednesday night. Hosted by Jim Lauderdale and music writer Craig Havighurst. About 30 minutes away; doors open at 6. (Leave early for dinner at the famous Loveless Cafe and to beat traffic.)

Rock fans: Check out Jack White's Third Man Records store on 7th Avenue South in downtown Nashville and Grimey's, the best independent record store in town, located on 8th Avenue. Also stop by Howlin' Books next to Grimey's; it has a fabulous selection of music-related books and you can grab a coffee and sit out on the sunny deck. The best rock clubs in town are The Mercy Lounge/Cannery Ballroom/High Watt, The Basement on 8th Avenue (below Grimey's record store), The Five Spot (East Nashville Five Points) and The Stone Fox off Charlotte Avenue in West Nashville. Marathon Music Works at Marathon Village is a music venue featuring local and national rock, pop and indie touring acts. Also check the Bridgestone Arena website for national touring acts such as Rush, Elton John, Pink and The Black Keys, all of whom recently played here.

Independent bookstores: We have Howlin' Books (next to Grimey's record store) featuring books about music and entertainment and Parnassus Books in Green Hills (owned by bestselling novelist Ann Patchett).

Baseball: The Nashville Sounds, the Triple A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers play in Greer Stadium, an aging but charming ballpark that features a guitar-shaped scoreboard.

Independent film: The Belcourt Theatre in Hillsboro Village for documentaries, foreign films, indie films, old films, Westerns, experimental films, midnight movies. One of the best independent theatres in the country.

Other music venues: The Bridgestone Arena hosts large-scale rock, pop and country shows; the Schermerhorn Symphony Center has classical, pops and world music. The Tennessee Performing Arts Center hosts our repertory theater, Nashville’s opera and ballet companies and touring acts and musicals.

Shopping malls: Green Hills has two high-end malls: The Hill Center, a walkabout shopping center featuring Whole Foods, Anthropologie, West Elm, Pei Wei and lots of boutiques, and The Mall at Green Hills (Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, The Apple Store, Tiffany, Coach, Dillard's, Restoration Hardware, Macy's etc.) Opry Mills is an outlet mall next to the Opryland hotel but also has regular retail stores like Forever 21.

Provisions: Our local grocery chains are Kroger (Inglewood Kroger is two miles from me) and Publix. For natural foods, it's the Turnip Truck in East Nashville/Five Points or its bigger location in The Gulch. We have a Trader Joe's in Green Hills. Tennessee does not allow wine sales in grocery stores so you have to buy wine in a liquor store. Midtown Wine and Spirits has the best selection of wine. Froogal McDougal's is another big liquor mart. The closest wine store to me is Sinkers on Gallatin Road.

Day trips: For whiskey fans, Jack Daniel Distillery is about an hour and a half away and worth the trip! The George Dickel distillery is also nearby, as are several others on the "Whiskey Trail." Loretta Lynn has a ranch about an hour away that sometimes offers entertainment on summer nights, including appearances by Loretta herself (check the website for the schedule.) As far as Memphis goes, Graceland, Sun Studio and the Stax Museum are worth seeing, but I just cannot recommend Memphis for more than an afternoon. The city has gotten very down-on-its-heels over the years and guests who have gone expecting more have been very disappointed. I recently made the trip and must agree. Also, you really have to know exactly where you are going in Memphis, as there are many places that can potentially be dangerous for a lost tourist. Please follow your GPS closely if you go to Memphis!!!

EATING AND DRINKING

Southern eats: For BBQ, go no further than Jack's, next door to Robert's Western World on Lower Broadway. For an only-in-Nashville food experience, try Prince's Hot Chicken (fried chicken coated with five-alarm hot pepper). Classic sit-down, family-style, pass-the-dish Southern: Monell's in Germantown. Best meat n' three (cafeteria style, pick 1 meat and 3 vegetables ... mac n' cheese and spiced apples are vegetables ;) is Arnold's Country Kitchen on 8th Avenue.

Bluegrass: The one and only world-famous Station Inn (in the Gulch). Serving longnecks, pizza and popcorn at picnic tables and folding chairs. Atmospheric!

East Nashville restaurant picks: The Silly Goose, Lockeland Table, Eastland Cafe (latter two have great happy hours). Veg option: The Wild Cow (Robert Plant has been seen here).

Special dinner out: Margot (East Nashville Five Points) or City House (Germantown)

Best breakfast/brunch: Marche (East Nashville Five Points, fronts Gallatin Road/Main Street) – go early on weekends to beat the line

Coffee houses: Ugly Mugs (neighborhood meeting spot; bring your laptop), in East Nashville, Fido in Hillsboro Village (lots of Vandy students but great food), Crema in SoBro (fabulous downtown skyline view), and The Frothy Monkey on 12th South.

Favorite local neighborhood bar/club: The Family Wash in Inglewood/East Nashville. You never know what A-list musicians will be sitting in on any given night. Comfort food, beer and wine.

Closest local pub: Village Pub (1 mile from me in Riverside Village). Half off beer from 4-7 weekdays, weekly pickin' parties on the porch in the summer.

Closest deli: Mitchell's Deli, 1 mile from me in Riverside Village. Hot breakfast bar, delicious sandwiches. Good lunch spot.

Italian food and pizza: Coco's Italian Market off Charlotte Avenue. Real New York style pizza and homemade pasta dishes, gourmet market and bocce court out front. Bottles of wine are half off on Wednesday nights.

Local brewpubs: Fat Bottom Brewery in East Nashville, Yazoo in the Gulch

Burger joints: Burger Up, Fido or Rotier's (for an "old Nashville" experience)

Mexican: Mas Tacos Por Favor (East Nashville) Very casual Austin-style taco joint; open for lunch & dinner. Tacos $3 each; faves are the chicken, pork and fried avocado, and the plantains with cream. Also, Rosepepper Cantina on Eastland Avenue has a big outdoor deck.

Pizza: The closest pizza is Castrillo’s in Riverside Village one mile away. The best East Nashville pizza is at Five Points Pizza at Five Points, East Nashville, across from Margot (fine dining.) Good NY style pizza and a selection of draft beer.
Fancy (and pricy) drinks: The Patterson House, off Music Row in Midtown. Gorgeous and cool speakeasy atmosphere, complex and layered drinks, fancy bar bites. Worth a splurge!

A private two bedroom apartment with front and back entrances, full kitchen and all the comforts of your own home. Relax with a glass of wine at sunset, or enjoy your morning coffee on the large deck. There's a charcoal grill for cooking out. Enjoy this peaceful, friendly street along the Cumberland River ... there's a trailhead to Shelby Bottoms at the end of the street. It's marvelous for a morning walk or jog and has a beautiful pedestrian bridge across the river for sunrise watching.

I keep an apartment on the other side of the house as a writing studio but often stay at my other house 2 miles away. I'm always available by phone/text and am usually within close distance, but the Air B n' B is a separate unit

The neighborhood is "serene" and peaceful and very convenient to the many wonderful restaurants and clubs of East Nashville. Moss Rose Drive is tucked along the river and it is not a through street so we have only neighbor traffic. You'll see joggers, cyclists and dog-walkers, and the greenway is at the end of the street. It goes along the Cumberland to Shelby Park, and from there you can ride city streets to Five Points or downtown on your bike. About a mile down the path there's a beautiful pedestrian bridge over the river for watching the sun rise or set. It's a touch of country in the city, and in fact used to be the home of numerous country stars' estates (Roy Acuff lived down the street, Faron Young on a neighboring street). The eclectic shops and boutiques of East Nashville are 3 miles away, and this neighborhood is rapidly filling up with new vintage stores, brewpubs, artisanal food markets, etc. With the Riverside Village corner complex exactly one mile away, there's a wonderful deli, pub, coffee shop, sushi restaurant and record store/boutique within close distance.

Lyft is absolutely the best way to get around the Eastside, downtown and beyond if you don't want to drive. Drivers are prompt, friendly and affordable. We have UberX service as well.

  • Jeannie's place in Nashville was absolutely perfect and super clean. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights with 2 of our friends and our dog. This place is a bit outside the downtown area (about 10 min) but the lyft service was fantastic and so cheap! Jeanie was a great host and left us snacks and bottle of wine. The beds were very very comfy and we enjoyed the deck. Overall, this was a great home base for our first trip to Nashville!

    July 2014
  • Jeannie is the best!! The place was completely stocked with anything we could possibly need, complete with snacks! She even left out a guide of things to do in Nashville. She clearly went above and beyond to make her guests feel at home. She was also kind enough to let us use her outdoor space to shoot a little acoustic video with a band. The neighborhood was so nice too. I definitely recommend Jeannie's place for anyone visiting Nashville!!

    June 2014
  • Steve and I have a plan to travel with our grandchildren -- one at a time. At 12, they choose a place in the US and at 16 they choose a place overseas. Chloe picked Nashville, a place neither of us had been. Jeannie was the perfect hostess to choose! She filled us in on places to go and things to see. The apartment was in a nice neighborhood that we could easily drive to any venue we wanted. The place was perfectly furnished and comfortable. Not only was the food stocked, but Jeannie kept replenishing the snacks and refrigerator food. I would definitely choose this place again if we get another request for Nashville. And I must say, I would enjoy seeing Nashville again! Thanks, Jeannie

    June 2014
  • Had a great experience staying at Jeannie's place. So comfortable with all of the amenities of home. Jeannie is a wonderful hostess who makes sure that her guests have all that they need to make their stay memorable. Thanks Jeannie!

    June 2014
  • Jeannie's place is truly a gem!! We have been to Nashville many times, and this was by far our most enjoyable stay. The house is absolutely lovely, with two beautifully furnished clean bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with everything you could need, a great living room, and a perfect bathroom. Most importantly, Jeannie is an amazing and unmatched host! She could not have done more to make sure we were happy and enjoyed our stay. She got in touch with us well in advance, provided us with fantastic recommendations, and checked in on us when we got into town. She also made sure the kitchen had food for us, went out of her way to take out the garbage, and treated us like family. We will unquestionably be returning next year!!

    June 2014
  • It's not so often that you want to use the word "perfect" but we are so glad to tell everyone that our stay at Jeannie's appartment was perfect! The house is very comfortable and decorated with taste. The terrace and garden are amazing. We enjoyed very much seeing the red birds --tanagers and cardinals-- flying between the trees while sitting outside. Jeannie is a wonderful host: she told us a lot about the nice things to do in Nashville, explained erverything from the closest supermarket to the excellent local pub. She left a very good guide she made herself about the area and you can really discover Nashville by staying at her place. We hope to come back!

    Il existe peu d'occasions pour utiliser le mot "parfait" mais nous tenons vraiment à dire que notre séjour chez Jeannie a été parfait de tous points de vue. La maison est très confortable et décorée avec goût, la terrasse et le jardin sont magnifiques. Nous avons pu admirer tous les matins en prenant notre petit déjeuner dehors les beaux oiseaux rouges -tanagers et cardinaux- volant entre les grands arbres. Et Jeannie est une hôte formidable: elle nous a laissé un guide sur Nashville fait par elle-même et qui nous a donné des conseils très intéressants. Grâce à elle nous avons découvert des petites salles de concert authentiques, des pubs et restaurants servant d'excellentes bières et produits (fromages, glaces etc...) locaux. Les conseils de Jeannie vous permettent de voir un Nashville hors des sentiers battus. Nous espérons revenir!

    June 2014
  • We had the most wonderful time with Jeannie in Nashville . After our disastrous start in Columbia Heights in Washington we approached our new abode with (email hidden)eve unlocked the front door , dashed inside and came back with the most wonderful smile on his face. It's fantastic he said and it really was. It was clean,beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, and lots of food ,wine and goodies. It was close to the city and we got lots of tips from our host.A great start to Nashville. Nothing was too much trouble for Jeannie.
    I hope for all the rest of you airbnb guests you are lucky enough to stay with Jeannie.

  • I came to Nashville for a small get together with friends. We were looking for a nice place with plenty of room. Jeannie's place was perfect! Upon arriving we were immediately in love with the neighborhood. The apartment was perfect and very clean. Jeannie goes above and beyond to make sure guests have all the information necessary to make the most of their Nashville experience, providing snacks and drinks and binder full of helpful tips and suggestions. We had a great stay and would definitely come again.

    Getting around was also very easy . We used Uber and Lyft. Jeannie provides some free Lyft rides for first time users which saved us three trips! On average a ride downtown was about $14.

    May 2014
  • We traveled from California and stayed at Jeannie's place for a week with another couple. We loved the house and the neighborhood! Jeannie thinks of every detail! We arrived late at night and there was music playing and a light on. She also had left a bottle of wine and several snacks. The beds were very comfortable and we loved sitting on the deck and relaxing. I would suggest her tips on places to explore if you are a music lover and want to experience Nashville. Thanks to Jeannie we saw some awesome musicians such as Kenny Vaughan and Heath Haynes. Lyft and Uber make it so easy to get back and forth from your destination. It was on average $12 to get downtown. I would highly recommend Jeannie's place if you are looking for somewhere comfortable and quiet to explore Nashville.

    May 2014
  • I loved my stay at Jeannie's place. The apartment was very cute, hospitable, and really a joy to come back to after a day of touring around Nashville. It's located in a really nice, safe, quiet neighborhood. As a tourist I wasn't sure if it would be bothersome to stay in East Nashville instead of downtown, but the drive downtown was easy and there was always easy and cheap parking at the library garage downtown.

    What I was most impressed about what just how welcoming Jeannie's makes her place. There is so much thought about the small details that Jeannie has put into her home to really make it a wonderful place to stay, from breakfast items, snacks, plentiful towels, and really everything you would ever need being away from home. She was nice enough to give us a call while we were there to check in, so while I didn't meet her, she was very kind on the phone. She gives you a fantastic tourist guide that she wrote herself, and led us to some wonderful sites/attractions that I would never have otherwise heard about. Really wonderful stay, and I plan to look here the next time I'm in Nashville.

About
Hi! I am a writer and music journalist, originally from upstate New York. I spent five years each in Seattle and Washington, D.C. as a reporter and radio producer, and have made Nashville home for the past 10 years. I am a traveler myself and love being an Air B n' B host, as it brings the world to me when I am not out exploring it. My goal is to provide a comfy, relaxing home base for Nashville visitors of 1-4 people with all the amenities you could possibly need and space to spread out and enjoy each other's company - not feel confined to a single hotel room that you can't wait to leave. Travel opens both windows and doors ... Air B n' B tends to attract travelers as opposed to tourists, and I love sharing all the charms of Nashville with my fellow travelers!
