12 South Loft - Peaceful, private guesthouse in a perfect location!
average rating of 5.0 based on 58 reviews

Great homey spot with access to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved having a more neighborhood experience of Nashville. The 12South retail and dining blocks are a 10 minute walk from the property - we enjoyed grabbing our breakfast there each day. Downtown Nashville, Broadway, etc. are a 10 minute Uber ride away - everything was very accessible. The property itself is clean, comfortable and quiet - with great magazines and books and artsy charm. Owners were easy to work with.

Quiet, comfortable, well maintained property in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

I am incredibly happy with my stay at 12 South Loft. This property exceeded expectation. 12 South Loft is located in a great neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, shops, and bars. When we arrived, the place was immaculate and we were provided a lot of useful amenities. We had a party of four, and while this guesthouse is probably better suited for two people, we were all still comfortable. We all commented that our stay here contributed to our great time in Nashville, and made the trip much more authentic and comfortable. I absolutely recommend this property and will mention it to friends traveling to Nashville. I would stay again.

Home away from Home - Should get 6 Stars

  • 5 of 5

This loft is top notch and ever detail is covered. After reading all of the reviews this loft is a no brainer if you want a relaxing place with privacy and close to popular areas for food and shopping. It was hot in Nashville when we were there but the a/c did a great job of cooling the loft down. Lori and John are easy to contact and they make you feel like their loft is yours while you're there. 12 south has some great restaurants. The Melrose area is also close by and we enjoyed going to M.L Rose for great burgers and atmosphere.

The loft has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The outside patio is private and relaxing.

Lori and John have thought of everything.

We're already planning our next trip to Nashville and we hope to rent this loft again in the future.

12 South Loft Nashville TN

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several vacation rentals, this cozy little loft was by far one of the cleanest. It accommodated 4 adults. Could have more space for hanging and storing clothes during your stay. Just 5 minute Uber ride to downtown Nashville. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank You Lori and John for the hospitality, Greatly Appreciated

My girlfriend and I were in town for a wedding over the weekend, and we stayed at this guest house. It was a perfect oasis from the noise and bustle of the downtown area. The loft was spotless, airy, and had everything we needed and more. The owners were very easy to deal with. There were unexpected extras, like a bottle of wine, cold drinks and snacks. The location was extremely convenient. We had a car, and it took us only 12 minutes to reach downtown. We loved our stay, and would not hesitate to stay at this loft again.

Perfect, private, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we felt that warm and generous southern hospitality! We stayed 2 weeks in this comfortable and well appointed loft, and wished we could have stayed longer! John and Lori were so generous and thoughtful. The perfect hosts!

The loft is super private, as it is a stand alone building on the owner's property. It has a private entrance and parking steps from the front door. We loved that! we were greeted with a well stocked snack drawer, Keurig with a selection of coffee, beers, sodas and fresh filtered water in the fridge, and a bathroom with shampoo and conditioner, lotion, soaps and even a hair dryer (thanks!) When we ran out of fluffy towels, they were kind enough to supply more asap. John and Lori were always available and responded quickly to questions via email or text. That kind of personal attention was appreciated. The bed and bedding was super comfortable, and the furnace made the few chilly nights super cozy! On the more moderate evenings we left the windows open and enjoyed the fresh air. It was lovely to wake up the next morning to the sounds of various birds, and the soft breeze rustling through the trees. When we weren't out at night going to concerts or listening to live music, we relaxed on the private back patio.

The area is beautiful, and very safe. Lots of great restaurants and shops on 12th Ave - a 3 minute drive, and in 10 minutes you're in downtown Nashville. The perfect location.

Don't hesitate to book this incredibly peaceful and private loft.
