About the property

Adorable and spacious 2 bedrm apt in quiet beautiful setting

Slightly Off Retreat is truly a gem: peaceful, spacious, close to everything! A fantastic apartment with idyllic views, quiet surroundings, yet still so close to all Eastside hotspots, and downtown is only 2.5 miles away ($5-10 Uber ride). Coffee shops, some amazing restaurants, bakeries, bars and shops are walking and biking distance. Guaranteed memorable trip:)

With 1200 sq feet of space, this fun apartment features a full bath, 2 bedrooms (queen and full beds), huge den, full kitchen and utility room. 4 people is typical, although 2 more can sleep in the den (queen airbed provided).

Located on the bottom level a beautiful East Nashville home, Slightly Off is completely separated from our residence, with its own entrance, driveway and carport. You will find board games, books, movie channels, free WiFi, DVD/VHS/CD players & DVDs/VHSs to play. Also, guitar, banjo, djembe along with a record player are in the apartment.

It is an unusual find in historic Lockeland Springs, to be situated next to Shelby golf course with wooded acreage behind. Enjoy the view and solitude from an awesome porch while being only minutes away from the Country Music Hall of Fame, museums, and more.

Shelby Park is a large city park next to our home. It features a public golf course, driving range, tennis courts, playgrounds, duck pond, ball fields, and walking paths. It is also part of our city's green way system with miles of green ways to walk, jog, or bike alongside the Cumberland River.

We have 2 friendly dogs (australian shep & great pyr therapy dog) who stay in our portion of the home and the backyard. Most guests never meet them, but holler if you want to!

The lower level of home is completely yours and securely locked from upstairs. You have a full utility room, kitchen, bath, etc.

What do we love about the neighborhood? Everything! Golfers should definitely take advantage of the course. Shelby Bottoms is a great wetlands nature walk - you can bike it 4 miles over a bridge to OpryMills, wave pool, General Jackson, Grand Ole Opry. We are big fans of shows at the historic Ryman -- downtown is so close and you can take advantage of a $5 Uber car ride to go to our fantastic symphony hall, the Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame or one of the many free concerts on the riverfront or courthouse. But we have to say, you can keep to a 1-mile distance of our home and hear tons of music, see great local art, shop unique boutiques and eat at fantastic restaurants.

Let us know what you are looking for in transportation. Bikes can be rented at 5 points - Bus line is close that runs right into downtown - Uber & Lyft are readily available.

Guests have been full of compliments on the place, and their reviews describe it best. You will enjoy your stay as well:)

A home away form home

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin. A quiet end of street neighborhood location ideal for a long weekend stay. Funky and eclectic, in a very good way, making for an inviting, comfortable community feeling. Lots of options for relaxation whether inside with games and videos or outside on the patio or going for a walk. Sufficient room for a family or just some alone time with a book. Close proximity to many Nashville attractions and a wide variety of dining options. Kelli is a longtime resident and offers great inside and guidance to assist you with getting the most out of your stay. We had car problems and Kelli told us about and even contacted a local nearby generational family-owned garage who was able to make the repairs and get us back on the road in less than an hour. Vacation saved. This will be our first choice for our next Nashville trip. I highly recommend you seriously consider staying here as well.

A Nashville Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were reluctant to stay in downtown, due to the noise from neighboring bars/restaurants, so opted for East Nashville (after talking with some locals). BEST DECISION, EVER! Not only is East Nashville a fantastic, quaint, eccentric place, but the Slightly Off rental is SO perfect! The minute you walk in, you feel like you are really in Nashville. I would highly recommend it for a couple (or two couples that don't mind sharing a bathroom), or a small family (because of all the games/videos for the kids to enjoy). Kelli is a fantastic host, adding the little touches to make your stay even more memorable. The outdoor property is quite large, with a beautiful golf course to gaze at. East Nashville is not only the perfect location (convenient to downtown/other attractions) but the people are so warm and they make you feel like part of the East Nash family :)

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

2 couples stayed at Slightly Off Retreat, as soon as we pulled up to the carport we felt at home - music and lights on - a few snacks and drinks waiting for us which was appreciated after our long 8 hr drive. While we relaxed and had a few drinks on the porch, Kellie came down to welcome us (she lives above in the main house) as we asked her many questions about the area. She's full of great information and suggestions for restaurants and bars.

As for the apartment - it was more than we expected, it was very clean - comfy beds, good linens and nice thick towels. Enough room for the 4 of us, we didn't feel like we were crowding each other. Kitchen is nicely stocked....we didn't cook only ate breakfast and had many cocktail hours sitting on the porch overlooking the golf course listening to the birds. Short ride with Uber to downtown cost was $17 one way on Fri/Sat night. This was a wonderful, comfortable stay - away from all the madness but close enough to get anywhere within a short ride. We are already taking about staying next year at this little piece of paradise.....thanks Kellie!

Quaint and quiet

We loved our stay at Slightly Off retreat! Spent a week in Nashville and couldn’t have asked for a better location, and the hostess (Kelli) is wonderful! Wish we could’ve stayed longer, but are planning to come back!

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

Property was well located and a quick walk to the five points area and grocery stores. We even walked to broadway and back one day. It was about 13km or so round trip and a nice way to see what the neighbourhood had to offer.

Kellie is a fantastic host and we can’t wait to go back!!

Lyft and Uber are super easy to use and we even had to take a lyft at 4am to the airport and had no trouble.

Don’t hesitate. Just book!
