About the property

PERFECT site for celebrating Birthdays, Reunion Weekends, Special Occasions!

2-MILES from DOWNTOWN/BROADWAY/VANDY! WALK to RESTAURANTS and RETAIL! The “Caroline House Nashville” established 1921, is a completely restored Luxury Historic bungalow published Spring 2015 by local media including the Tennessean and CBS News Channel 5! This charming designer property is located the 'hottest' neighborhood in Nashville, Historic 12South/Melrose!

We have found that groups gravitate to our property when seeking a perfect space for a special celebratory occasion. Our Inn is deliberately designed to provide many comfortable options for groups to gather and spend quality time with those that mean the most. At the Caroline House Nashville, our goal is that you create memories that will last a lifetime!

There are a total of (4) private queen ensuites, each with a private bath, and one suite is actually a studio which includes(2) queen beds, so property sleeps a total of (10) in beds. Luxury Suites all feature private baths, cushy robes, big fluffy towels, Italian Frette sheets, and the same "Heavenly Bed" mattress you find in Westin hotels. Be prepared to enjoy the amenities on par with five-star hotels, but not at the five-star price!

The kitchen is smack out of a Williams-Sonoma and Potterybarn catalog with high-end appliances and the best cookware and servingware available for your use.

Guests will have access to all the main living areas of the home including the family room, kitchen, comfy front porch and back covered patio with cushy outdoor furniture and a wood-burning fireplace. We provide a combo code for use in accessing the property so you can come and go as you like! If arriving home late at night after some classic Nashville fun, the home is well lit with lighting all around the property so that you feel safe upon arrival.

There is plenty of street parking directly in front of the property, as well as on our private drive. If we are in town, we greet you upon your arrival to help you get settled and will assist you with dinner reservations or other plans to help ensure you enjoy your stay!

Note that we are an URBAN NEIGHBORHOOD which is SMACK in the middle of the CITY! We are 'city folk' and love living in 12South where we can walk to a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues, and boutique shopping! We can't wait to share our neighborhood with you!

Since we are in the center of the city, transportation is a breeze! There is a bus system that picks up 2 blocks away, or a $6-$10 Uber or Lyft ride will get you about anywhere in the downtown and midtown Nashville area. There are choices of restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks to up to a 1/2 a mile walk. 1/2 a mile away there are also bicycles available to ride around the city and check in at any other sister bike station in the city. Many love to pick up a bike in our neighborhood, 12South, and ride the bikes into downtown 1.5-2 miles away, and check in the bikes there.

Note that we have been inspected by the Fire Marshall, are fully insured, and in compliance with Metro Nashville codes. Our PERMIT # is 201525036

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures do not do the Caroline House justice; it is truly beautiful both inside and out. Ashley has managed to blend old and new in an absolutely perfect way throughout the entire house. We came to Nashville for a couples weekend and the house was perfect for us. From cocktails on the gorgeous back patio, to coffee on the front porch, everything was perfect. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything that you might and overlooks the large dining area and comfortable living space up front. Each individual suite was comfortable, wonderfully furnished with high end mattresses, linens, bathrobes and even calming noise machines to block out noise from any other guests. And talk about clean, this place is immaculate both inside and out! The location is perfect, within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and boutiques at 12th South. You are a few minutes Lyft ride to more dining and shopping in Hillsboro Village or Vanderbilt's campus. And it took us no longer than 8-10 minutes to get downtown to Broadway or any of the other areas around downtown Nashville. We can't wait to come back to stay at the Caroline House again. If you are looking for a luxury B&B that is close to everything you could need in Nashville, this is it! Thank you, Ashley!

Very quaint well appointed Home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend This home away from home! They thought of everything to add to the enjoyment of your stay! Plush bedding, soft robes, chocolate, adult beverages, local coffee and so much more that added that special touch! You can enjoy your morning or evening relaxing on the front porch or covered terrace out back! Need to plan another trip soon!

Excellent Inn - Comfy and a great place to chill!

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed at the Caroline house two times, the last time was a "run of the house" where we rented the entire Inn during Vanderbilt graduation weekend (we booked 18 months in advance). We enjoyed both stays, and it was an especially great choice for a hectic weekend like graduation. The house is in a quiet neighborhood location, so a real chance to chill out, but walking distance to great shops, restaurants and coffee shops. It is also a short uber or taxi ride to downtown and the college campuses and other Nashville locations. The bedrooms are high quality, with every detail considered. The most thoughtful inn or b and b you will stay in. And the proprietor and host are excellent!! I am picky and I give the Caroline house my very highest rating. Great beds and showers!

Beautiful, comfortable and spacious home in a great area close to town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for a holiday retreat with our children and grandchildren, and we couldn't have been more pleased! Not only is the house beautifully decorated, the owners have included so many nice touches that made us feel right at home -- from the heavenly beds to the provided coffee and accoutrement, we were delighted with our stay. The house is close to several of the Nashville area hotspots, but tucked in a beautiful neighborhood. Ashley was a great communicator before, during and after our trip, and Shawn greeted us and made sure we were all set.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

Four couples LOVED staying here for a long weekend in Nashville. Ashley was wonderful to work with and made our stay easy. We had a nice welcome to the home with delicious coffee, local chocolates and vodka! It was clean and accommodating. Location is perfect for exploring the 12 south area. Great suggestions for eats and things to do in a binder. We did uber to other parts of town (average cost around $12). We rented the entire house. If you don't, you may be in quite close contact with others also renting just a room. We enjoyed hanging out in the backyard in the evenings with a cozy fire. Would definitely recommend and return. The pictures and descriptions are accurate. Only disappointment for me was their dog was not around.
