Awesome Historic Home

Great historic property located in a great spot, close to shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Home was roomy with great hosts. Great spot to relax and unwind. Definitely would recommend to any who wants a good Nashville experience.

This is more like home than a B&B! A beautiful, welcoming and detail oriented atmosphere that is totally accommodating. From the fresh ground local roasted morning coffee on the front porch, to a midnight snack on the quaint back porch after taking in everything Nashville. Loved experiencing three (3) different meal vouchers at our own pace in the order we chose. Thank you so very much Ashley and Michael, we feel blessed to have experienced your fabulous space!


Amazing On Many Levels!

5 on August 30, 2018

After spending time researching hotels, air b&b's, etc... we decided to give the Carolina House a try. I'm so glad we did! What an amazing property. We have stayed at b&b's all over the world but nothing like this. Ashely & Michael's approach to the concept of a bed and breakfast is quite clever and in addition it supports their local community which is high on our list. The house is easy to find and located in a quaint neighborhood. Upon entering we were greeted by Ashley who gave us an overview of the property. Such a beautiful home that is tastefully decorated. We chose The Coal Room which gave us luxurious sleeping quarters but also additional space to relax, read and spread out. In the mornings we were greeted with the smell of coffee, which is roasted nearby, and then headed off for our breakfast. Each morning you use a coupon that is provided by the Inn to have breakfast at one of the local restaurants. This was a fabulous way of trying different things and each place was amazing! You are walking distance to each of them which allowed us to feel more like a local by learning the area. The coffee at each place was also really nice. ( I consider myself a coffee snob!) On top of all of that every night we came in, there would be some interesting treat left on the bar for the guest. Each night it was something different. We felt like kids on Christmas morning going in to see what Ashley and Michael left this time. Lastly, we loved seeing their dog Desi. Desi is well trained and not intrusive. I sat out back at times and she would come to say hi and then lie quietly. When in Nashville again, I know now that research is not needed to find the best place to stay. I will come back to the Carolina House Inn. Amazing stay, amazing owners and definitely one amazing property. The new spin on bed and breakfast is here!


5 Star Inn in Nashville

5 on August 23, 2018

Ashley and Michael at The Caroline House Nashville were very gracious, welcoming hosts. They helped make our visit truly special. The Inn is convenient to local restaurants, coffee shops and shopping. After delicious coffee at the inn in the mornings, we were able to easily walk to breakfast at the recommended local breakfast spots (paid for by The Caroline House). Parking in Nashville is quite a challenge so we left our vehicle in the provided parking at The Caroline House and used Uber or Lyft for the short trips to get to dinner or downtown attractions. Save for one or two trips to sites that were several miles away, we left our vehicle safely parked at The Caroline House from Monday to Friday. Our room accommodations were lovely, quiet, and inviting. This was perfect for a stress free getaway! Both Ashley and Michael were gracious hosts who were extremely helpful in suggesting local sites, events and the best local restaurants. We heartily recommend The Caroline House Nashville for a great B&B experience in Nashville!

I got lucky and found this Inn last minute. Very greatly the weekend was open. Great hospitality. Tons of local knowledge of restaurant and enetertainment. They really make you feel welcomed. The coal room was fantastic, clean with about the most compfortable bed I ever slept on. Nicest amenities close by. If eve in Nashville again, I will be staying here.


Caroline House Great stay

4.4 on August 06, 2018

This was my 2nd stay and I love the place! Beautifully renovated home, conveniently located a few blocks from 12 South St. district with great restaurants. Ashley and Michael went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Comfortable bed, secure parking, can’t wait to go back!


Beautiful, comfortable B&B near Nashville

4.6 on July 26, 2018

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Caroline House! Every detail was perfect. The house decor is lovely and comfortable and spotless. We loved hanging out on the back patio at night and appreciated having access to the kitchen and the drinks in fridge. Being able to walk to different local restaurants for breakfast was great. We especially liked Box Bongo+Bakery. I had the most amazing coconut cream coffee and smoked salmon bowl. And we enjoyed petting sweet Desti, when we were mission our own Golden Retriever. Great location too---an easy Uber or Lyft ride downtown.


Wonderful Nashville Getaway

5 on July 13, 2018

My 19 year-old son and I decided to take a three day trip to Nashville on a whim. I am glad we booked at Caroline House. I am a TripAdvisor reader, and this B & B had great reviews, which made me book. Ashley and Michael were perfect hosts, and the house was spotless (I am a clean freak!). My son and I stayed in the Coal Room, which was the entire downstairs. It had 2 queen beds, a sitting area and TV, a pool table, and a wonderful walk-in shower. All of the arrangements exceeded expectations. The one thing I especially loved (because I try to stay B & B whenever I can) was the fact that breakfast was off site whenever you wanted to eat. Usually, you have to get up to eat by 9 or 9:30, but we got up around 10 every day and ate at our leisure. I loved the stay and the little things that Ashley thought of, from wonderful sheets and duvets to a simple noise cancelling machine. We never heard a step from the upstairs or even the shower running! It was truly a great stay!


Great home, neighborhood, service and southern hospitality

5 on July 13, 2018

We stayed at Caroline House last month on a weekend trip to visit family and see our son perform after his week long piano camp at Belmont University. What a great place to stay! Outstanding customer service from the hostess, Ashley. It is like staying at home away from home. Beautifully restored home, immaculately cleaned, with interesting memorabilia throughout. The beds and linens are 1st class. We love staying in historic homes over hotels. The neighborhood is great with several choices of great breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurants within a few blocks for the house. We will be back to stay again on our next visit to Nashville. Thanks for the warm southern hospitality.

We considered a downtown hotel but so glad we stayed at Caroline House. Its location was perfect...walking distance to great restaurants and an easy uber ride to the downtown area. Michael and Ashley were great hosts. We loved waking up to a pot of hot coffee, and appreciated the wonderful breakfast recommendations provided by the host. Finally, Michael and Ashley were so well informed about Nashville. That guided us to great experiences during our anniversary weekend.
