1890's Restored Victorian Farmhouse in the heart of downtown Nashville
average rating of 4.5 based on 16 reviews

Comfortable and close to good eating places

  • 4 of 5

I booked this property for myself and 3 sisters in late September 2016. We wanted a place where we could each have a bedroom and be in walking distance of downtown Nashville. This house fulfilled both those expectations! We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the nostalgic looks at days gone by in the historic furnishings. Being seniors we would have appreciated a recliner or two in the living room but we're so glad the beds were comfortable There was plenty of parking when friends came by and it was a short walk to restaurants and shops. Overall we enjoyed our stay and hope to go back someday. Tonya was very nice to work with too.

Was told it was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The day I headed to this destination, I had a mild heart problem on the way and landed in ICU. Half of my party showed up, so I told them to make the most of it as the rest of us obviously did not make it. I am told all was beyond lovely and location was great. I do think they dragged their feet on sending me back my security deposit, but am told the. 4 who made it had a good time.

Great place to stay and gather with friends or family & shop!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location and the the house! The porch was our favorite place to gather rain or shine. It was so cozy and yet big enough for all 10 of us! The only thing I would think about doing is change your sign out front or put a little one on porch mentioning it's a rental because several times we were out on the porch we had people walk up and think it was a quilt shop or store! Maybe because we were having so much fun they wanted to join!
