I have stayed at the Germantown Inn several times since it opened and have found it to be marvelous every time. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and quiet. The Innkeeper is exceedingly helpful. Breakfast is perfect - light but filling- and the coffee is delicious. I have enjoyed working in the living/dining area while sipping my coffee - especially on a rainy day. Highly recommended.

The Perfect Stay

4.8 on October 01, 2017

We stayed for three nights in this fabulous newly renovated B&B, it was in a lovely quiet neighborhood with great restaurants and just a couple minutes walk from Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and 20 minutes walk to the bars on Broadway. Our host Veda was so lovely and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had lots of great recommendations. The place was spotless and very comfortable, both inside and outdoors, with a great breakfast and evening treats. We will definitely be returning!

We had a wonderful stay at the Germantown Inn! The staff was so friendly, we enjoyed talking with them over breakfast and happy hour. Our room was perfect- cold in the Nashville heat and the bed was really comfortable. The neighborhood is really cute and there are alot of restaurants and bars within short walking distance. We loved our stay from start to finish and would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Wonderful Property in Great Neighborhood

Germantown is an incredible neighborhood in Nashville full of restuarants, brewries, and easy access to the rest of Nashville. The Inn is an exquisite property located in the middle of it all. I stayed in the Buchanan. The bedroom was roomy and well appointed. The bathroom was one of the best bathrooms I had ever been in!!! No real food service, but not needed with all of the nearby places. The service was excellent and very receptive to our needs.

Wonderful Stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Germantown Inn. The staff was so friendly and gave us great recommendations for things to do and places to eat in the area. The breakfast was delicious and they have a happy hour with wine and meat/cheeses in the afternoon. Our room was really cute, and the bed was SO comfortable. Amazing stay here, definitely recommend it for everyone!

They really didn't have onsite dining. For breakfast they did have awesome pastries and coffee and berries. I did a detailed review on TripAdvisor

Stayed over Valentine's Day weekend. Both employees were wonderful, helpful and courteous. The Inn is in a wonderful little neighborhood within walking distance of some restaurants and coffee shops. Everything was very clean and comfortable in our room. Would definitely recommend!
