About Lawrence Boothby

I'm a Native of Maine and moved to Nashville in 1979 to work in the Film and Television Industry. My profession as a cinematographer and director of photography has provided me the opportunity for international travel as well as working all the great legends of country music. Recently married, my wife and I enjoy caring for our guest in our VRBO properties and traveling to others VRBO's around the country.

Lawrence Boothby purchased this house in 1994

Why Lawrence Boothby chose Nashville

I love this location. I have lived in this area since my move to Nashville and have found the location to be so central to everything you could want to do in Music City. The neighborhood is quaint and I love the people. My most relaxing place to be is on the 24ft. x 24ft. back deck. It is spacious and I enjoy the privacy of trees. It attracts a lot of birds and bunnies to my back yard. I love to walk into Hillsboro Village for morning coffee and pastries for breakfast or enjoy a movie at the Belcourt Theatre. The house is minutes from the Best Restaurants Nashville has to offer, whether in the Gulch, West End, 12th Ave So, or Elliston area. The Ryman Auditorium, Frist Museum, Union Station, Lower Broad and the Parthanon are just a couple minutes away as well as I-40, I-65 and I-440. The property is only 15 minutes from the Airport.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to Vandy Stadium or Belmont University Campus. Only 0.06 miles to Hillsboro Village for shopping, lunch or just hanging out at Fido's Coffee Shop. 0.05 miles to 12 South restaurant & bar neighborhood. The Gulch, known to be a trendy and hip neighborhood, and a popular destination for locals, college students, and visitors alike is 2 miles.

Great location and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We were in town visiting our daughter who is a student at Vanderbilt. The location was perfect. We were able to enjoy the back deck and used the grill to make dinners. The kitchen is well appointed for meal prep and plenty of spices if you forget anything. Both beds were comfortable and the bathroom was ok--the shower is a corner shower and a little cramped.

The living area was comfortable.

We used uber to go downtown and it was quick and easy--$10 for a regular car. Close enough to walk to grocery store and restaurants.

Owner was very responsive and helpful.

We would definitely stay again!

Fabulous a well deserved 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2 of the best weeks of our lives in Nashville as we came here to get married. Lawrence's house was perfect for our stay. It is in a perfect location in an upmarket area of Nashville & still close to Downtown Nashville. The house was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed was just like home from home. Lawrence was a great host he was in contact with us before we arrived and when we were there to make sure all was ok. He is a talented photographer as you will see when you study the framed pictures in every room of his house. Was very handy having a grocery store at the end of the street. There was a great place for breakfast called J Christophers a 5 minute walk away. Hillsboro Village is a 10 minute walk and here you will find the iconic Pancake Pantry but beware you will queue at least 30 minutes the pancakes were so good it was worth the wait. Another favourite of ours was Martins Bar-B-Que Joint on Belmont Blvd a 5 minute drive from the house. The hog roast, Ribs & Beef Brisket are a must try. "Fan Favorite" definitely beats staying in a hotel. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave.

One level, 3 bedroom 1 bath older home with great character and updated modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on a quiet, cute street near a grocery store and about a mile walk to some great bars and restaurants. The house has all the charm of an older home, moldings, hardwoods, architecture but with all the modern updates too! Kitchen is fully functional and has a great sit-up bar area, bedrooms are spacious and well decorated and the porch out back is amazing! We spent many hours just sitting out back enjoying the quietness and privacy it offers. The owner, Lawrence, was the best! He let us add a guest last minute and brought over extra bedding and towels promptly. Really a nice guy to rent from! Overall a perfect place to stay while in Nashville.

Fantastic Location and Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This property met all of our expectations! The house was beautiful, clean, and literally 2 miles from EVERYTHING! Lawrence was excellent - he had everything ready for us upon arrival and was very detailed in everything! He made sure we were happy with the property, and even had great tips on getting around the city. The bedrooms were big and comfortable, and everything was remodeled and new! The deck was fantastic (although the weather was chilly and a bit rainy so we didn't get to use it much). The kitchen had everything we needed and we were walking distance to a great grocery store and within half a mile of some super fun restaurants and shops. We used Uber a lot, and typically the fare to go downtown was between $7 and $10! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again! 5 stars!!!
