Inviting nook

4.8 on September 28, 2014

Mulberrry House is welcoming, private, and warm yet trim and aesthetic. One enters directly into an open space that includes the fireplace sitting area, the television sitting area, the dining area, and the kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom are in the back of the space. The cottage is very well appointed. Nothing has been overlooked. Breakfast items (yogurt, eggs, butter, OJ, milk, fruit) are in the refrigerator and on the counter (bread, coffee, tea). Beer and soft drinks were also provided. Highly recommended.

Simply perfect

My husband and I have never stayed at a bed & breakfast and I'm afraid the Mulberry House has spoiled us! The cottage had everything we needed and so much more. The grounds and gazebo were so lovely, we had our intimate wedding under the gazebo. Catherine and Doug went above and beyond in every way to ensure we had the perfect weekend and wedding. We simply couldn't have wished for better. The Mulberry House will always be special to us. I highly recommend it to everyone!

A very special weekend at the Mulberry House

My husband and I shared a very special weekend at the Mulberry House. Catherine and Doug go way above and beyond in every way and the house is simply perfect. I highly recommend this lovely getaway!

Weekend Getaway

My husband had to go to Nashville on business for a few days and he found this cottage and what a find it was. It was in a great location which was very convenient to downtown. The decor was stylish and very comfortable. It was immaculately clean and neat. Catherine was so helpful with restaurants and places to go. It felt more like visiting a friend. The cottage was very private and we will definitely try to stay there again on our next visit.

Wonderful private cottage in convenient Nashville location

4.8 on October 31, 2012

My wife and I returned to Nashville for 3 nights in October, 2012 for an event at Vanderbilt Medical Center and to see old friends. We opted to stay at the Mulberry House after a careful search of local hotels, inns and B&B's, and we were not disapppointed in the least. In fact, this was one of the best stays we have had in our frequent travels. No detail has been spared in the renovation of this former carriage house, including in the decorations and the amenities offered. We were allowed privacy but the owners were easily accessible for answering questions or just a quick visit. The proximity to downtown Nashville, the Vanderbilt area and Green Hills is hard to beat. But the spacious accommodations and attention to detail in the cottage are what stand out and make this a wonderful destination spot for those looking for a short or long term stay in Nashville.

We recently spent three nights in the Cottage. Everything was beyond our expectations. Catherine treated us as house guests, rather than strangers. It was so special that we have gifted two nights to our daughter and future son-in-law for their wedding night in mid-September. In this world of commercial enterprise, it is rare to find a one of a kind anything. This experience was in that category. Jan and Jim Borin

Wonderful for small group retreat!

Our office was recently treated to a lovely time at Mulberry House. Our team of eleven used the living room for a day-long planning meeting. The atmosphere was peaceful and so conducive to creative discussion and quiet time for reflection. Cathy and Doug were such gracious hosts. A tranquil retreat, without having to leave the convenience of the city. We'll be back!

Mulberry House weekend

5 on August 25, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at this charming, adorable getaway. Mulberry House is a detached completely refurbished cottage with every amenity you'd look for in a cozy B&B, with the added bonus of a bit of privacy! Doug was a perfect host, and met us on arrival to give us a guided tour of the cottage and surroundings. We soon made ourselves so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. The cottage is roomy and spacious. The full kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make our own breakfasts, including fresh ground coffee, yogurt, fruit and home made granola. The private fully fenced-in courtyard is an idyllic retreat running over with southern charm. And we loved the privacy - we could have lounged quietly alone the entire weekend. We will surely return and next time we'll spend more time!

The Best Home Away in Nashville

Catherine and Doug offer the best in Southern hospitality with great attention to detail with the amenities. This was my 3rd visit to the lovely carriage house and I look forward to returning. It was my home away from home as my son matriculated through Vanderbilt University. May they continue to provide comfort to all who visit! Lisa Roth

A peaceful haven

4.8 on March 09, 2011

We went to Nashville to see our son who is a student at Belmont. We were very stressed as we are selling our house, and our kitchen had flooded. When we arrived at Mulberry House, it was as if every stress and burden were lifted from our shoulders. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Very clean, which is important to us. Catherine and Doug were so gracious and hospitable, meeting us as we drove up. Catherine had included everything we would need, and even stocked snacks in case our son wanted to stay with us. Her homemade granola makes my mouth water even thinking about it! This is an expensive place to stay, but for a special occasion, it truly makes your visit above and beyond your normal weekend getaway. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful place to stay in Nashville. Not to mention in a very easy location to get most anywhere. I hope we can go back soon!
