About This Listing
Summer is here and Nashville is ready to entertain you! Whether you're here for business or fun, if you're looking for a place to spread out and relax with all the comforts of home, you've found the right place.
It's summertime in Tennessee! There's always plenty to do in Nashville, but summer is when the entertainment really kicks in. If you're looking for all the comforts of home and a place to spread out and relax between the sightseeing and nightlife, make your home base this comfortable two-bedroom apartment with full kitchen in Inglewood, a leafy and peaceful residential neighborhood along the Cumberland River and just north of East Nashville, the heart of Nashville's creative community and home to many of our writers, artists and musicians. You will need a car to get around town and for day trips, but we also have Lyft and Uber, which run 24/7 and are a great, low-cost alternative to driving downtown for a night of honky-tonkin'. (Fare runs about $13 to Lower Broadway.)
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. It is located exactly 7 miles from downtown, the Music City Convention Center and the Lower Broadway honky-tonk district. Opryland Resort & Convention Center is directly across the river (it takes about 10 minutes to get there). Cost per night is total; there are no cleaning or other add-on fees (Air B n' B does charge its own booking fee). For the mobility-challenged, this is a one-level dwelling with flat, surfaces from the drive to entry and all through the house. This is a self-contained apartment with off-street parking and front and back entrances. Children and pets are welcome (please note that the yard isn't fenced but it's an excellent street for walking).
French doors off the kitchen lead to a large deck with a charcoal grill for cooking out. Two bedrooms with new queen beds sleep up to four, and extra guests can be accommodated with an air mattress. A tiled bathroom has a tub/shower, lots of towels and soap, shampoo and conditioner, as well as a hair dryer, iron and board. If there's something you forgot, such as Q-tips, a toothbrush, razor or shaving cream, mostly likely it's here. Full kitchen with gas stove, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and electric teakettle. Fresh-ground organic coffee, tea and fixings are supplied, as well as eggs, bread or bagels, butter, yogurt, cream cheese, oatmeal, pasta, numerous snacks and condiments - all included. A 200 square ft living room has comfy furnishings and a 32 inch flat-screen smart TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime and local channels. Wi-fi throughout.
There's a trailhead at the end of the street for the Shelby Bottoms greenway, where you can do a one mile loop or walk four miles along the river to East Nashville's Shelby Park, enjoying a sunrise or sunset view from a beautiful pedestrian bridge suspended above the Cumberland River.
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 live music at Robert's Western World and numerous other clubs along the strip. The house is one mile from Riverside Village, which has Mitchell's Deli, Village Pub and Rudie's Seafood & Sausage. Three miles away at the corner of Eastland and Chapel is a collection of restaurants including Rosepepper Cafe, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, The Wild Cow, Silly Goose, Two Ten Jack, Eastland Cafe and two coffee shops, Portland Brew and Ugly Mugs. Just a little further down is Five Points and its many independent shops, bars and restaurants for all tastes. Favorites are Margot and Marche, and check out nearby Lockeland Table as well. A Kroger supermarket and drugstores are two miles away. Lower Broadway, the heart of downtown Nashville is exactly 7 miles away, accessible by Ellington Parkway (fastest route), Gallatin Road or I-65.
*** I do accept one-night bookings but mostly to fill in dates during week - please inquire. Due to demand for weekends, especially in the summer, I try to keep the weekends reserved for longer stays. Thank you! ***
The house has two entrances with parking in the back. The main entrance is the set of French doors on the deck that leads into the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I keep an apartment on the other side of the house as a studio but often stay at my other house 2 miles away. I'm always available by phone/text and am usually within close distance if anything arises. Please don't hesitate to call or text!
The neighborhood is peaceful and convenient to the many wonderful restaurants and clubs of East Nashville and an easy run to downtown via Ellington Parkway or Gallatin Road. 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 or Uber is the best way to get around the Eastside, downtown and beyond if you don't want to drive. Drivers are prompt, friendly and affordable.
My fee is flat. There is plenty of off-street parking in back of the house. Smoking is allowed on the deck. Traveling for a while and need some clean clothes? I have a washer/dryer on my side and am happy to throw in a load or two!
Wow! I don't even know where to begin. From the moment we pulled up the street and saw your home til the moment we left, we felt in awe. We started out saying, "let's go back to the house" to saying, "let's go home". That's how comfortable we were. You gave us the greatest ideas on where to go and what to do, from restaurants to eat at, which places to go downtown, shows we saw, and places to visit.
Your home is wonderful, and we we not in need anything! Shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, toothpaste, first aid kit, food galore, comfy cozy living room, and the best part...the beds! Oh my gosh! Slept like a baby the whole time!
Thank you for joining us for coffee, and chatting. You are truly a kind and generous person with a beautiful spirit and deep integrity.
For anyone reading this, listen to her suggestions on where to go and what to do. We went and saw Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers, and it gave me a whole new view on bluegrass and Country Music. We went to Roberts downtown and again....WOW! Had the BEST time there. All the other bars...eh...kinda crazy, but Roberts was a perfect Nashville experience.
If you go to Memphis to see Graceland, find Interstate BBQ! It doesn't look like much, but it's the best BBQ we ever had!
As I write this, I am sitting on the back deck, it's 7:30am on the day we are leaving, and it the perfect way to end our trip. Birds singing, beautiful blue skies, greenery everywhere I look, coffee in hand, and peace.
Enjoy your stay....
Thank you Jeannie....we will be back!!
Jeannie's place was perfect for our family. 2 clean and super comfortable bedrooms (the pillows and the mattresses were really superb). Very comfortable LR and kitchen with a neat local decor feel (lots of music themed touches, but tastefully - not overdone). The deck was wonderful, our family had most of our meals out there and the yard was a great place for our kids to play. The neighborhood felt safe and was very quiet.
It was a quick ride into downtown Nashville, but thankfully was far enough that we didn't feel like we were in downtown - more of a family neighborhood.
Jeannie was welcoming and friendly, even helping with finding my son's backback which we left there accidentally and mailing it to us with no trouble whatsoever. Also, Jeannie has stocked her place with everything you'd need from chips and snacks (the kids loved the apple sauces and bunny crackers) to olive oil, and various other cooking related items that you don't really want to buy while traveling, but might need if you do want to cook a meal (we did).
We would definitely recommend her place and wouldn't hesitate to book it again if we are in Nashville again.
The space was great and it was exactly what was shown in the photos! Loved the little extra touches that Jeannie provided such as baby wash, hair dryer, extra pillows, local travel info, variety of teas, bottled water, and lots of snacks. Thanks for having us. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Jeannie's "bungalow" is lovely and the neighborhood location made it feel like we were coming home after our long days touring Nashville. Jeannie is an attentive host, while totally respecting our privacy. It was our pleasure to have met her and we were completely satisfied with our stay.
It was a perfect visit. It was clean and very accommodating. Relaxing on the patio was great after running around visiting the sites. She had great amount of local information which was vital for us being our first time to Nashville. Overall, it was a great trip we will be doing again soon.
This East Nashville house was perfect! It had everything we needed and was close to great restaurants/shops. I would highly recommend it!
Jeannie was very helpful with information about Nashville. Her place was immaculate. The house was exactly like the pictures . Kitchen was very well stocked with lots of food and snacks. The neighborhood was very quiet . We loved our stay here would definitely recommend this to someone! Jeanie actually stopped by. It was really good to meet her.
About the Host, Jeannie
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!
