Favorite Place Ever!

4.6 on September 03, 2017

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!

We had a great stay with our 5mnths old babyboy. Felt like home!

We had a great time with our five month old babyboy. The hospitality was outstanding. Friendly and so helpfull. The room was fantastic. Walking distance to nice modern restaurants / shops. Downtown Nashville is also not too far. When you visit Nashville, this is the place to stay!

Weekend get away

My husband and I took a much needed weekend get away. When we arrived we were greeted by Lanny and instantly felt welcomed. The Nest was beautiful, relaxing and just what we were looking for. Lanny gave us some great insight on restaurants and things to do as this was our first time in Nashville. He made sure we had everything we needed, he checked in on us each day. He also helped us when we had some tire issues on our way home. We can't wait to come back and will definitely stay here again.

Had a great time on my weekend visit

Leslie and Lonny, Thanks for letting me take over your beautifully finished “studio” digs. How did you know I needed an escape from the drywall dust generated from the renovatio of my frigid waterfront condo in Rochester, NY? …… my lungs thank you for the fresh Tennessee air as well and this comes straight from my stent-riddled heart ¿ Lonny is quite the “powerhouse of personality” and it’s obvious he is full of positive energy. I love it! My Nashville associates tell me Leslie is “absolutely amazing”, which I’m sure is accurate to a “T”. In two short days at the end of a week-long conference, I was able to hang with my Austin based sister and niece as well as a couple of my transplanted northern band members. We were introduced to a few local musically minded people they have met in the years they’ve spent here. This includes newly arrived transplants from Boston living a few blocks up the street, who are following their son’s dream come true as he hits the road and builds a future in the business. Every single one of these people have been polite, friendly, interesting and accommodating….. which reminds me of something called Southern hospitality. Although I have been here a few times in the past, this was the first time I got to enjoy the exploration of your charming revitalized neighborhoods. I told my sister to ditch her Austin digs, migrate up here and I won’t be far behind! The weather, the musicianship and the people seem better here anyway! The map shows some interesting waterways which will be the focus of today’s exploration. Who knows, maybe I will retire on a giant houseboat and write yet another song about relaxing cold beer consumption and Evinrude propulsion – maybe it will include the line “I Love (leaving) NY” Tom McNall

Nice change of pace...

Good location to get off the beaten path, yet close to everything. Great Host, nice atmosphere.

Great place to stay to get off the beaten path...

The Nest was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of down-town. The 12 South area was nice and it is a good way to see some different parts of Nashville. Lanny was a great host and went the extra distance to make us feel welcome, but yet gave us our privacy.

The Nest was the perfect haven of rest I needed in the middle of a busy, conference trip. Everything was beautiful and the hosts very kind. I really appreciated the healthy snacks and water left for munching as eating well while traveling can be tricky. It was my first trip to Nashville and I am looking forward to coming back.
