Turrible

1.6 on August 29, 2014

Innkeeper requested that we check in before 4-5PM because she was hosting party and would be busy. Innkeeper provided route to walk, but scenery was not good and suspicious characters prevalent. Finally, Innkeeper rushed us at breakfast and interrupted our conversation with other visitors to tell us "I'm going to need to swipe your cards"


wonderful!

This was among the best b&b experiences we've had. Ellen was a wonderful host, very accommodating and helpful in pointing out what to see in Nashville. The home was warm and cozy; breakfast was delicious; the bed was very comfortable. We really could not have asked for anything else...definitely hope to be back and spend more time here!


Nashville Trip

My children had given my husband & me BedandBreakfast.com gift cards for Christmas and we decided to use them in Nashville at The Big Bungalow to celebrate our anniversary. We got tickets to the Ryman to see Rhonda Vincent. Everything about our trip was wonderful, especially our stay at The Big Bungalow. We were minutes from downtown Nashville. There was a very nice restaurant just down the street with great food. The Big Bungalow is in a sweet neighborhood with easy parking. Ellen marked up a Nashville map for us so that we would be more comfortable getting around. We came and went as we pleased. Her B&B is clean and welcoming. Her breakfast was on time and filling. She even made us a breakfast dish with fresh peaches that we purchased at the local Farmer's Market, which is a must see. Thank you Ellen for making our visit / anniversary more special. We also loved sharing breakfast with your other guest from Denmark. Hopefully the good Lord will allow us another visit to Nashville and we would love to spend it at The Big Bungalow.

Ellen welcomed us like old friends and that set the pace for our stay. She guided us to restaurants, places of inserest and local hot spots - and every one was a winner. Thank you Ellen for a fabulous stay.
