Nashville Gem

4.6 on February 20, 2018

There are so many options to stay in any city. My husband and I were traveling for pleasure for the first time to Nashville and looked into hotels and airbnbs. We had not stayed in a Bed and Breakfast for a long time. We ran across Caroline House and were impressed with the connection to local dining, it's placement in a historic neighborhood and easy access to the city. At the last minute we decided to not rent a car, instead using the nearby city bikes and Lyft. We did not miss a car at all. The neighborhoods are lovely to walk through. We loved returning to the Caroline House where we stayed in the Babe Ruth room which had every amenity we needed. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the public spaces, the porch on the front, and the yard out back, and Desti the sweet and friendly dog. Breakfast at different local restaurants was a highlight and we got into many conversations with locals which gave us more of the flavor of the area. We highly recommend this Inn for anyone who wants comfort, local flavor, a quiet neighborhood, and a beautifully decorated home.


Absolutely the Best B&B

We recently stayed at The Caroline House in Nashville and loved loved loved it! The historic house is beautiful. It is meticulously clean and the beds and sheets are amazing. Guests are provided breakfast cards through local restaurants which is a unique and delicious idea. There are still plenty of fresh snacks and drinks on site. We loved the easy access to downtown. Ashley and Michael were very helpful with suggestions on places to eat and visit. They went well beyond making sure our stay there was perfect. Caroline House is hands down the best combination of old and new - quaint historical home with all the nicest modern comforts. We plan to be in Nashville for future visits and most definitely will be staying at Caroline House again.


Very nice place in great location

We really enjoyed our stay at Caroline House. Centrally located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to some awesome restaurants and shops. Glad we stayed here rather than in the tourist trap near the outlet malls. I rec


Great time in Nashville

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

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!

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!
