About the property

Our spacious, comfortable cottage in the vibrant 12 South neighborhood is 3-4 blocks from some of Nashville's best coffee shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques! Plus the cottage is 2-3 miles to downtown, under 3 miles to Vanderbilt, Lipscomb and Belmont Universities and 2-3 blocks to a grocery store, drug stores and dry cleaners.

It's approximately $8-$9 for Uber or Lyft to downtown - cheaper and easier than driving and parking! The airport is 12-15 minutes by car.

The new Sevier Park Community Center (2 blocks away) has excellent work out facilities, yoga and fitness classes for $3 and an indoor walking track.

The owners Karla and Ed are available for questions or advice but totally respect your privacy. We live in the front house on the property and are happy to help you plan your time in Nashville or give you the freedom to find your own way. We've lived in the neighborhood for over 25 years and are music, food and art lovers. We love our neighborhood and think it's the perfect place to have as a home base for visiting Nashville.

Kirkwood Cottage is a newly built 2 bedroom, 2 bath home home. Enter through a private gate off the shared driveway with guest parking for 2 vehicles. An open floor plan with vaulted ceilings makes it feel spacious and cozy at the same time. The screened side porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails! And there is a completely fenced in back yard and patio for grilling as well.

The fully-equipped kitchen has everything needed to cook a great meal if you choose. Plus a beautiful walnut island with bar stools that once belonged to Earl Scruggs!

Gas fireplace in the open living area, tv with cable and Roku for streaming Netflix movies, etc. Comfortable seating and a dining table that extends to seat 6.

Master bedroom: king bed with new memory foam mattress, tv

Master bath: spacious shower - soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner provided.

Second bedroom: queen bed with new memory foam mattress, tv

Guest bath: tub/shower combo. Soap, shampoo and conditioner provided.

Laundry room with full size washer and dryer

Other amenities: free cable wi-fi, 3 flat screen TVs, books, magazines, games, stereo system, private outdoor space.

2 night minimum, 3 night minimum for special events and holiday weekends. The property is fully permitted and 15.25% hotel tax is included in price.

Interaction with guests

We live on site unless we are traveling, in which case we will have a local contact as well as being accessible by call or text. We are experienced landlords and are here for you!

We have two friendly dogs but they have no access to your property - unless you want them to come say hello.

Great rental home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very new, clean, and well-equipped. Owners have thought of everything often missing in other rentals like good lighting, comfortable beds, full-length mirrors, great towels, two full baths, screened porch, TVs in bedrooms, sound machines for sleeping, and everything you need in a kitchen. Extras like lots of green plants, Qtips and cottonballs, bottled water in the fridge, snacks on the counter, washer/dryer, candles, nice selection of CDs, ...too much to list! Parking was right by the front door. Convenient to everything in the area. We easily drove downtown in 8 minutes, or jumped on the freeway to go elsewhere. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and only blocks from shopping or entertainment. Karla is there to help but respects your privacy. She always responded to emails promptly while setting up our reservations. We would stay again in a heartbeat if we are ever back in Nashville again. Don't hesitate to book this home!

Perfect home away from home! Very comfortable, clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to find this spot in Nashville! Karla and Eddie are delightful and their cottage was just right! The neighborhood was lovely. It was a 10-15 minute drive to downtown. We used an Uber for all of our destinations around the city. It was a short walking distance to the Kroger grocery and also the 12 South District with cute shops. Thank you Karla for all the restaurant and activity recommendations! Can't wait to visit again and hoping for a longer stay next time!

This trip was a reunion of sorts for myself and three friends. The house is lovely/ very tasteful and met all of our needs, it even had small "noise machines" for those who like white noise when they sleep. Karla was super nice and helpful. We had a wonderful time!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Karla and Eddie's cottage with another couple for a few nights while visiting Nashville for the first time. Everything about the cottage was absolutely perfect. The location was in walking distance to 12 South which was a great neighborhood with fantastic restaurants. We were also a quick drive to downtown Nashville and all the tourist spots. We highly recommend the cottage for two couples traveling together. We really loved everything about it. It was impeccably decorated and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms and kitchen had all that we needed for our stay. The cottage was so cozy and comfortable we found it hard to leave. Thank you Karla and Eddie!
