The Nest is truly one of a kind! 10/10

I HIGHLY recommend staying at The Nest! We’ve stayed at many rentals similar to this and this was by far our best experience yet. The location is great (just a couple blocks away from the 12 South area), loved that there was secure parking, the room is extremely clean, super cute and has everything you could need, and on top of that the communication throughout the whole process was superb. Lanny and Leslie are true gems of people and went above and beyond making our time in Nashville one for the books. We briefly mentioned that we were there celebrating my fiancé’s birthday and when we arrived to The Nest, there were cupcakes, balloons and a Happy Birthday card in the entry way. We were blown away!! Completely over the top sweet and unexpected but so memorable and appreciated. Then when we walked into the room and there was more...a Congratulations on your Engagement card along with a couple of mini bottles of champagne and some champagne flutes! These little touches were completely unnecessary but really made our time special. We can’t thank Lanny and Leslie enough. They are so sweet and considerate. If we are ever back in Nashville, we will definitely be staying at The Nest!

AMAZING Experience!!!! What a beautiful home with such kind owners

I would highly recommend "The Nest" as a home away from home when you are visiting Nashville. The attention to detail is fantastic. The location is in the heart of everything.

If I could square the 5 star rating I would! Lanny & Leslie are a unique team who care very deeply for their guests and for people in general! Their above and beyond attitude for life is contagious! If I let the selfishness in me win I would not share this here. I'd keep this treasure all to myself...but we love our new friends and want you to love them too! So...visit The Nest!!! You won't be disappointed on any level! The homestay is lovely, clean and welcoming. We can't wait to visit again to enjoy the beauty of all The Nest has to offer!!!

Cozy, Convenient, & Fun!

We've been to Nashville many times, but this was the best trip yet! a short and affordable Uber ride to the downtown area, the Gulch, all points in Nashville including a mere couple of blocks from everything going on in the 12 South area. There's not a place in Nashville we've found that compares for the money and convenience. Highly recommended!

Lovely stay!

We had such a lovely stay at the Nest! Beautiful room! Very large, comfortable and clean. Lanny and Leslie were so welcoming and hospitable. They gave us wonderful recommendations for things to do and places to see. We can't wait to come back!

Nice place and a great location.

We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed it. Walking distance to great eating/beverage locations. Close to Broadway and the Gulch areas. Very convenient location, clean, roomy and well appointed.

Coming Back Again

Lanny and Leslie couldn’t have been more gracious hosts. My wife and I loved the fact that The Nest is located on a quiet side street and that the spacious, well-designed guest suite had its own private side entrance. The bed was extremely comfortable, the wifi worked great, and there were tasty snacks and a wide variety of beverages available, all included. In addition, there were several great restaurants only a few blocks away. Since they’re located only a short distance from downtown Nashville, my wife and I Ubered everywhere and didn’t have to rent a car or pay for expensive downtown parking. Having been in the music business, Lanny knew all about the music scene and was able to tell us where the best music venues were. Our only regret was that we came in early March, and it was too cold to enjoy the outdoor lounge area and fire pit. Ross & Carol Miller

Try it, you’ll like it!!

Outstanding hospitality in a clean, comfortable setting. Friendly and welcoming hosts make the visit even more memorable. Walking distance to 12 South shops and restaurants, with lyft providing easy access to downtown. We would highly recommend the Nest - try it, you’ll like it!!! Heather and Roger

Best place to stay in Nashville!

We were in Nashville for the eclipse and stayed here for 5 nights. What a treat! They have thought of EVERYTHING. It's just the one room in a private home, but it's very spacious, private full bath, private entrances, two private patio areas, lots of coffee and snacks (you don't get a full breakfast, but there's lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cookies, etc). It's walking distance to several restaurants and bars in the 12 South area of town. About two miles south of downtown Nashville. Perfect spot - close to many things but far enough away from the chaos of downtown so the evenings are quiet. We loved it!

Favorite Place Ever!

Lots of onsite snacking and beverage options; many dining choices a couple of blocks away. Must stay here!
