Great time in Nashville

4.8 on November 12, 2017

Lovely older home in quiet neighborhood. Especially like the Breakfast vouchers. Enabled us to sample local restaurants all within walking distance. Home is beautifully redone and rooms are large and unique. Ashley and Michael were very friendly and helpful with suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants and transportation. On site parking. Really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Caroline House!


Amazing place to stay

4.8 on October 12, 2017

We stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have been happier. The "urban" BNB experience was new, but great. Text messages along the way to help us get there and have the best experiences, coffee before breakfast, a house doggo!! And a perfect room, bed, shower... wanted to take that home with us! Walking distance to everything we wanted and needed. Overall ... amazing.


Unique B&B in Nashville

5 on October 04, 2017

Unique B&B in Nashville We are glad that we have chosen the Caroline House Historic Inn to stay in while visiting Nashville. The Old Coal Room was our home away from home for three nights and we could not be more satisfied with our accommodation. It is a large basement space uniquely decorated, dream of any football or hockey fan. Private bathroom and plenty of towels, luxurious bedding, billiard pool table and comfortable sitting area with large screen tv are the amenities of this room. We liked the original idea of having breakfast vouchers for nearby restaurants. Our vouchers covered our breakfasts completely. Each of the restaurants has its own style offering plenty of delicious meals and beverages to choose from their menus. We also enjoyed excellent home-made coffee every morning at the Inn. We left very early on Sunday morning and were pleasantly surprised that our hosts made an effort to prepare coffee for us so early. Thanks Ashley and Michael for your incredible hospitality. You deserve five plus stars for your hard work and efforts to please your guests and to make their stay in Nashville unforgettable. Location of the Caroline House Inn is excellent: five to ten minutes drive to downtown amenities, and about half hour drive to the wonderful historic sites around Nashville. We would gladly recommend The Caroline House Historic Inn to everyone who prefers to stay away from the hustle and bustle of downtown and to those travelers who want to experience a true southern hospitality. Thumbs up for Ashley and Michael, and their beautiful golden retriever Desti.


Everything you could want & more!

Wow! This is honestly the BEST hospitality I have ever experienced! The hosts thought of everything to make us as feel as comfortable & welcome as possible. In addition to our beautiful room with an excellent mattress, soft sheets, luxury towels & robes - we had access to the front & back porch, exercise room, living room, and kitchen. Each spot was so inviting. The fridge was stocked with a wide assortment of complimentary drinks. Fresh perked high quality coffee awaited us each morning. We really enjoyed eating breakfast at local coffee shops within walking distance using the gift cards that came as part of our package. If that wasn't enough, we received complimentary locally crafted chocolate & vodka. No doubt, we'll be back. We've found a new favorite home away from home!

4 day stay

4.8 on September 11, 2017

We loved this place. Very nicely updated. Very well furnished/equipped. Our room had a very comfortable bed, private bath, TV and a pool table! Ashley and Michael (hosts) were very helpful with suggestions for tours, etc. Location was less than 10 minute Uber ride from downtown. We really enjoyed the breakfast plan where we were able to sample local coffee shops each day (walking distance). Coffee, snacks and refreshments were available on site 24/7. Highly recommend this place for your stay.


Truly Exceptional

Our stay at Caroline House was wonderful from start to finish! We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay from the considerate hosts to the beautifully restored home to the delicious breakfast options. The wonderful restaurants that hosted us had many delicious options to choose from. They were a very short and beautiful walk down the street. Relaxing, peaceful, and luxurious are three words that describe our weekend at the Caroline house. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely B&B!


Getaway Weekend for the Total Solar Eclipse

4.6 on August 22, 2017

Ruth and I spent 4 great nights at the Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn this last weekend. Several months ago I booked this gem as part of our get-away-and-see-the-eclipse extended weekend. It was the best choice I could have made! Nestled in a quite neighborhood just a few minutes south of downtown Nashville, the Caroline is a very special place, with a great front porch, back porch, beautiful kitchen and living room, and our room, the Rose Master Suite, was superb. Of course, this house would not be a home without the very special proprietors Ashley and Michael. They made our stay very special and gave us great pointers to spots in and around Nashville. Desti, their well mannered Golden Lab, is icing on the cake! We cannot recommend the Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn more highly!


Home Away From Home

5 on August 19, 2017

This was our first B&B experience so we were a little nervous about the experience. The Caroline House was everything we read and more! Ashley and Michael were perfect hosts and let us interact at our pace. You can tell that they are very proud of their "neck of the woods" and their information was spot on! We stayed in the Coal Room which was more like a small apartment minus a kitchen. The space was absent of that closed in, cold feeling that comes with a hotel room but instead it was warm and inviting. There are two queen beds to choose from. If you like a more firm sleep, pick the bed closest to the bathroom. We opted the second night for the bed on the far West wall which was softer and we slept like babies. The common area is well equipped. The kitchen was stocked with a variety of drinks (wine, liquor, soda, mixers and a coffee maker) as well as a few snacks. We sat at the large dining table one evening and enjoyed a beverage and a relaxing game of cards. One of my favorite spots was the swing in the back yard! We enjoyed all of the breakfast locations but especially loved the coffee at 8th Street and the food at the Frothy Monkey. We never left 12 South for dinner. Everything we ate during our stay there was delicious, We will definitely return to the Caroline House when in the Nashville area.


Spectacular B&B
