About the property

Private East Nashville Cozy Cottage

The Cottage:

Located in the popular East Nashville neighborhood a hidden garden oasis awaits you as you enter the courtyard through your completely private entrance. The guest cottage was originally a railroad workers home and one of the oldest structures in the neighborhood. Built in the mid 1800’s, the now renovated cottage is a unique hideaway close to downtown and reflects a love of art, gardening and the comforts of your “home away from home”. It is perfect for a single person or couple to enjoy a restful and cozy environment after a full day of visiting Music City.

The guest cottage is run by two culturally experienced, open-minded, world travelers who offer a practical, comfortable and inspired visit for people who, given the correct amenities and location, prefer to take care of themselves.

The cottage features it's own separate entrance in the alley behind the main home.

Your stay will leave you in want of nothing else except to explore the sights and sounds of what is nicknamed “Nashvegas”.

So come on and be our guest and experience the old and new Nashville!

What you'll find when you get here:

Our Interaction with Guests:

When you first arrive we will be here to greet you to show you your way in. Afterwards we are just a text or phone call away in the event you need anything or have any questions while you enjoy your stay.

The Neighborhood:

The cottage is located in the most popular neighborhood in Nashville and just minutes away from downtown and lower Broadway’s famous Honky Tonks and the world famous Ryman Auditorium. You are also a short drive to the many hip restaurants, coffee shops and local drinking establishments near our historic “5 Points” neighborhood in East Nashville.

Getting Around:

If you prefer not to drive, the public transit system is 2 blocks away.

The cottage is just under 4 miles to I-24 making it an easy access to venture out and tour other parts of Nashville and/or drop in on the many music venues all within 10 to 15 minutes from your cottage.

We are located just blocks from the Music City Bikeway which has direct access to downtown.

Enjoy a stroll, run or bike ride through Shelby Bottoms Park located just one block from your front door. The park offers over 300 acres of wetlands and trails that run along the Cumberland River where you might catch sight of the General Jackson Showboat chugging down the river.

There is also Vinny Links golf course nearby.

On the other side of the Cumberland is the Grand Ole Opry. Take in a concert or go shopping at the Opry Mills Mall but don’t miss a walk through the spectacular atrium at the Opryland Hotel which is free and all are located within the same vicinity.

Nashville's airport is also easily accessible and less than 9 miles (approx. 16 minutes) from the guest cottage.

About Craig and Cynthia

From NYC and the Pacific NW, we have traveled everywhere in between. We know and appreciate what it is to have the comforts of a 'home away from home' and strive to make a comfortable and relaxing environment for our guests to enjoy while visiting Nashville.

Craig and Cynthia purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Craig and Cynthia chose Shelby Hills

We chose this area because of the ease and how centrally located East Nashville is to everything. It's a quiet neighborhood, a block from the entrance to 960 acres of trails and wetlands which we walk daily. The Cumberland River is right over the hill so you too can enjoy nature as you walk along the river and into the parks trails. Restaurants, bars and local music venues are also minutes away. It is an easy few minutes to downtown where you can get your fill of amazing music and all of it is free. Convenient to I-24 and the airport and just about everywhere else you want to go in Nashville. We are almost always within 10-15 minutes away from everything we need or want to go.

Lovely spot in East Nashville .. .

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location to get in and out of Downtown/Midtown/Gulch neighborhoods of Nashville. The cottage (and garden/patio area around it) was perfect for 1-2 people . . . the neighborhood was quiet and restful. Wish it had been a little warmer so that we could have enjoyed the equally nice outdoor space :).

Cozy and Crazy

''We enjoyed our stay. The unit was cozy and well located. The bed and the shower were the best. Parking in the alley was a little tricky and we had a little trouble with the front door lock.

Lovely cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely appointed and comfortable, quiet place to stay while visiting Nashville. We did little cooking, but the kitchen appeared to have all the essentials plus a nice variety of “extras” (French press, electric kettle). The walk-in shower was fabulous! The location was convenient for both exploring East Nashville and venturing into downtown; everything seemed only minutes away. The landscaping around the cottage was also well done and maintained. We would definitely stay here again!

There were only a couple of down-sides. First, there is a nice over-sized comfy chair...but no place for a second person to relax except sitting on the bed. The property could really use a second comfy chair. Sitting outside would be another option, but the weather was uncooperative while we were there. The next (minor) inconvenience was the outside lighting. The adjoining (main) house on the property had lovely strings of outdoor lights, which were nice except they were like floodlights shining in the windows at night, making sleep difficult. A few blackout shades on that side of the house would have helped (regular blinds were not enough). Regardless, our visit was wonderful and we would recommend staying at this cozy cottage.

Super cute cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

I will never stay in a hotel in Nashville again. This quaint bungalow is situated in East Nashville, one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the country. It's within easy walking distance of Shelby Park, coffee shops, bakeries,etc. If you like Arts and Crafts architecture then you'll be in heaven. 5 minute drives to shopping and restaurants at Five Points and Fatherland. Owner is very sweet and responsive. We hope to return soon!

The cottage is centrally located in one of East Nashville's most popular neighborhoods and close to Historic 5 Points where you will find hip local bars and restaurants along with eclectic shops. Also, minutes to downtown is lower Broadway where you can listen to music at the world famous Tootsies or other honky tonks or check out a show at the Ryman.
