Romantic Getaway

5 on March 18, 2018

We were in Nashville for the weekend and enjoyed this off the beaten path inn that was close to a number of excellent dining options. The rooms were extremely well appointed, fresh and modern yet reflecting the history of the original building and local flavor.

Great spot for a relaxing night!

My wife and I spent the first night of our honeymoon here and could not have been more satisfied with the room and with Veda's helpful attitude and willingness to check us in a bit later than usual. I highly recommend the Germantown Inn for its historical vibes and nice rooms. The bathrooms are great and very modern. Super comfy robes, and a nice outdoor area. The bed was like a cloud. We will be back!

Great Boutique Experience in Nashville

You will not regret booking a room at the Germantown Inn. We were greeted by the mascot, Wrigley a miniature golden doodle, and 'that' culture never changed for our entire stay. The front desk personnel are very polite and quick to make excellent recommendations on where to go and what to eat.

Ed's Feedback - 3 Days in Nashville at Germantown Inn

5 on January 10, 2018

The Germantown Inn was the highlight of our visit to Nashville. Historic building but completely renovated in sleek, modern décor. It's five to ten minutes from most of the area sites, and the local neighborhood is green and quiet. The Germantown district also has a number of good coffee shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the Inn. The Innkeeper (Veda) was welcoming and helpful. Cocktails at five, and breakfast was whenever we scheduled it; all perfect!

Fantastic Venue

5 on December 27, 2017

We needed to stay downtown but did not want the large hotel experience. This place is fantastic. The architecture and decor is outstanding. They did a great job with the expansion/renovation while retaining the architectural integrity of the original building. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. The common area is cozy and comfortable. The breakfast is exceptional. If you want to say downtown with more of a "bed and breakfast" feel, there is no better place than the Germantown Inn.

Wonderful Weekend!

My daughter and I came for a mother-daughter weekend in Nashville and could not have been happier at the Germantown Inn. Lovely, friendly, knowledgeable. We look forward to coming back!
