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.

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

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!

Attentive hosts and fabulous location

If you want to get away from the madness that is downtown Nashville, this is a great spot (we left our car parked and used Lyft to go downtown as needed). Quiet neighborhood but lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. Hosts are really lovely - thoughtful, genuine but will leave you to do your own thing. Only minor qualm would be the mattress - a little too soft for us but we're old!

Cozy retreat in Nashville

Beautiful private house located in the happening 12 south neighborhood. Lanny was a terrific host. Helped us plan our restaurant, cultural, and music outings. Comfortable and chic, we also had great outdoor space. Sunny and spacious, great place to drink coffee or a glass of wine. Will be sending all my friends!

Peaceful Place to Stay!
