Our room was the largest and called “The Cabin” - which was located in the backyard, separate from the rest of the house. Can you even believe this piano table!?

Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a complimentary glass of Whiskey as a true Nashville welcome. Say no more.

Golden hour light peeking in on one of the beds in the room. We loved all of the iconic western decor details.

The entire place is so incredibly curated with consistent nods to the Nashville music scene throughout, but we especially loved the living room area and enjoyed a cocktail there every night.

The outside of the B&B which is a large Victorian home nestled on a large corner in a local neighborhood.

Enjoying some fresh tea in the room with their charming teacup sets. Note the cowgirl boots in the back, because Nashville.

Complimentary breakfast was served every morning until 9am. Due to having too much fun the night before, we chose to take our breakfast up to the room which of course could not be done unless it was served on a vintage tray accompanied by a bandana. Every detail is thought out here!

Love seeing boxed water as opposed to plastic water bottles! My brother also definitely needed to take one of those Blowfish hangover pills in the morning.

Our balcony overlooked their bar, Public House Bar and Kitchen. This place gets PACKED at night. We were concerned that the noise would be too loud for us to sleep but we did not hear a peep. Amazing.

The tub of my dreams.

My face after that complimentary whiskey set in.

Highs & Lows

  • Design, design, design. There is truly nothing else like this place. It’s incredibly intimate, curated, and unique. A true nod to the city it resides in.

  • Attention to detail. Everything is thought out to make your stay extra special.

  • Service! Upon arrival the employees take your cell phone number and give you theirs in case you have any issues or questions. It was incredibly personable.

  • The beds. Wow. I truly truly have not slept that good in a while. It was a nightmare trying to get my brother to get up in the morning. I’m not sure what type of mattresses and pillows they have, but I need to order them immediately.
