Warm and cozy weekend getaway

4.4 on November 20, 2014

the Cornerstone is center of town, it is so convenient for shopping at all of the stores. And the free parking space provided with the stay is an extra bonus. Our room was very quiet, we will for sure stay there again.

We totally enjoyed our stay and the staff was so friendly. The breakfast/snacks were delicious. It was a girl getaway trip and Tutie's Cottage was perfect for us with all the comforts of home. I would recommend this very highly. We have already booked for next year!!

A Home away from Home

Any time we travel to Nashville we always stay at Cornerstone Inn. We stayed the first year they opened and that's been our home away from home every time we visit Nashville.
