Absolutely Lovely Time, Wonderful Stay at The Caroline House!

5 on April 30, 2018

Wow! What a beautiful B & B, and Ashley and Michael could not have been more gracious hosts. This is head and shoulders above any B & B we have ever visited. Aside from the lovely accommodations, Ashley stayed right in touch with us as we were arriving, even texting us to let us know exactly where to meet our Uber at the airport. We stayed in the "Old Coal Room" which was a lovely suite, and perfect for any sports enthusiast. The breakfasts at the local eateries were well chosen and yummy, and totally walkable to the Inn. The little extra touches were wonderful, like the "nightcap" of the sipping whiskey sitting on the counter when we arrived home for the evening, and the wonderful coffee in the morning. All just so nice. Ashley and Michael are a lovely couple and made us feel so welcome, in fact, it felt more like we were visiting friends! Ashley was always ready to offer suggestions on where to go, places to see, where to get the best food, all just so lovely. The website is wonderful, and even includes a guest portal with lots of great local information and "insider information" from our hosts. We are so glad we picked The Caroline House Inn and truly look forward to returning again and again to visit our new friends in Nashville!


A GREAT B&B in Nashville

5 on April 22, 2018

Just finished a FANTASTIC 3 night stay at the Caroline House! Both Ashley & Michael were great hosts. Both were more than happy to offer insights into activities to try or bars/Honky-tonks to check out during my visit. The B&B is beautiful, with many great amenities to it, and the room (The Rose Master Suite) was lovely. Lyft/Ubering around was easy with the inn's central location. It was also great to check out the breakfast at a number of restaurants near the Inn that I wouldn't have tried otherwise. I'm looking forward to staying here the next time I come to town!


A wonderful stay!

My husband and I spent three nights at the Caroline House in late March and have nothing but positive things to say. The house was warm and wonderful, Ashley was a delightful hostess with lots of info to share, and we especially loved being in a neighborhood where we could walk to shops, restaurants and just plain explore and get a feel for Nashville. Many thanks!


Loved our stay at The Caroline House

4.0 on April 08, 2018

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and the house was just beautiful. It felt warm and inviting and we loved our room and double shower! We walked to neighborhood shops and restaurants and when we returned, Ashley always had drinks and snacks available for us. We loved our time at The Caroline House and recommend it without reservation.


Best weekend getaway

This is a beautiful home located in a quiet neighborhood that is just a short walk away from shopping and restaurants. We stayed in the Coal Room, which was perfect for us and our teenagers. The pool table gave them something to do other than be forced to play on electronic devices. Ashley and Michael were very gracious and gave us several suggestions of some of the less tourist areas to visit throughout town. I really liked the cards for breakfast at the local restaurants/coffee shops. It gave us the flexibility to eat on our schedule as well as enjoy some of the nearby cuisine. Our stay exceeded all expectations. Thank you Ashley and Michael!!!!

Loved this place. The minute you walk in you are greeted with a warm welcome. We had the Coal Room and we loved the extra room it provided. Really liked the breakfast cards we received, this enabled us to eat breakfast on our time frame and to also see the local flavor of the neighborhood. This home is beautiful and very welcoming. The innkeepers have thought of everything to make your stay the best. They're a wealth of knowledge about Nashville and the surrounding areas. Also enjoyed the private site they provide once you book that list various things to do and places to eat in the area. I especially loved their dog Desinity which is actually why I booked this place in the first place. When I return to Nashville I will choose this bed and breakfast again. Can't recommend it enough.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the five-star review! So happy you loved the flexibility and local flavor provided by our breakfast tour. We so much appreciate you staying with us and hope to see you again on your future travels to Nashville!

Southern Perfection

4.6 on February 28, 2018

This past weekend (Feb. 2018) we had the pleasure of staying at the Caroline Historical Inn in Nashville. We were impressed with how the owners stayed in touch with us prior to our arrival and the tips they gave us for what to pack, things to do, restaurants to eat at, and local transportation options. Ashley greeted us upon our arrival, and made us feel immediately welcome. Our first impression of the neighborhood and the Caroline House went above our expectations. The house was very clean, beautifully decorated, and had all of the amenities and ambiance that guests could possibly want. And the property grounds, especially the back patio, were stunning. We were impressed by the owners’ support of local businesses, from the coffee served to the breakfast options, and their love for the rejuvenation of the neighborhood. The house is within walking distance (or a short Uber or Lyft ride) to all varieties of restaurants and shops, and only 2-3 miles from most downtown Nashville attractions. Friendly and informative, both Ashley and Michael were excellent hosts throughout our visit. They were always available to answer any questions either in person or by phone. And their beautiful dog, Desti, was very well-behaved and loving. We absolutely look forward to staying there again!

Innkeeper Response
