Nashville house description

This gorgeous family home offers complete privacy on a hilltop with beautiful sunset views. Everything is state-of-the-art in this retreat, which feels more like a luxurious vacation site than a log home. Located in Ashland City- only a scenic 20 mile (roughly 30-35 minutes) drive on 4-lane highways to all the excitement of Music City's downtown!

KITCHENS (yes, there are TWO kitchens in this home!): Everything in the upstairs kitchen is VIKING--if you want to cook, you will love cooking here. Professional chefs have stayed at this home, and were 'blown away' by the kitchen! The second kitchen is downstairs.

BEDROOMS: Three bedrooms upstairs, with a king bed in the large master bedroom, queen in 2nd bedroom, and twin beds in 3rd. Downstairs has two more bedrooms, with a queen in one and twins in the other. The sheets and beds are SO comfortable! The downstairs bedrooms are very private.

BATHROOMS: Master bath has rain shower and jacuzzi tub. One guest who stayed here reported, 'The master bathroom is unlike any home or hotel I have ever stayed in; it is a masterpiece by itself!' There is a nice bathroom in the hallway upstairs near two other upstairs bedrooms, and a 3rd bathroom in the hallway downstairs that the final two bedrooms share. No need to bring towels- they're waiting for you here!

A front porch with 4 rocking chairs & a porch swing, a back deck with fire pit and chaise lounges, a loft with couches and books... surrounded by nature and in complete privacy, yet only 30 minutes from the city... It doesn't get much better than this!! If you like peace, comfort, and relaxation, you're in luck, as this beautiful home is THE perfect getaway spot to escape from busyness, spend time reading and writing, enjoy the company of family and friends... And only 20 miles to all that Music City's downtown has to offer!

- Large loft with three couches for lounging
- Pool Table and Ping Pong table downstairs for extra entertainment and fun

                            The home is beautiful, and I can tell that when everything is green, the grounds are stunning. Inside the home, you'll find custom details including a chef's kitchen, upgraded showers/tub, comfortable furnishings, etc. The teenagers spent hours playing ping pong, the adults spent hours talking. The house comfortably slept our family of 8 and we were all happy with the comfort of the beds and linens. It took about 20 minutes to get to the house from downtown Nashville, even in rush hour. I noticed that every time there was traffic on Nashville streets, it was always headed the opposite direction! We never had problems navigating. Walmart is close which made our several grocery runs easy. All in all we had a fantastic trip and in three days squeezed in the following sights: Loveless cafe, Country Music Hall of Fame, Frist art museum, Johnny Cash museum, Grand Ole Opry show and backstage tour, concert at the Ryman, shopping and lunch in downtown Franklin, the Parthenon, and the Hermitage. Great family vacation for the Texas folks and the Tennessee cousins. Thank you for such great accommodations.

                            Our family stayed at this beautiful retreat for Christmas this year and had such a fabulous time! There was room for everyone to hang out together or find a nook for a little quiet time alone. The kitchen is fantastic and is equipped with everything you could need to prepare any meal and we prepared a lot of meals while we were there. The driveway is quite steep but presented no problems...we girls even decided to "walk the driveway" which was a challenge. We enjoyed hiking the trails even more! The grandchildren were delighted because Santa found the way to the retreat. The owner and the listing agent during the process of booking and our stay were professional and available to any need or question we might have. This is a beautiful property and a great place for a get away yet so close to everything.

                            We planned a trip to the Nashville area in August. We booked this beautiful log cabin. The house was immaculate. The garage area allowed for ping pong and can jam (we brought this game with us) enjoyment. The kitchen had everything there we needed to cook with. The laundry room allowed us to go home with clean clothes. The bedrooms were cozy and professionally decorated. The kitchen and living room area had an open floor plan for family togetherness and relaxation. The view off the front and back porches was peaceful and comforting. The downstairs was like a separate home in itself. There were bedrooms available, a kitchen area, and a pool room that we enjoyed. The owner greeted us when we arrived, and made sure we felt at home. We were given the keys and garage door openers. We were looking for a place for my family and some of our extended family members to stay as our young son is a country singer/songwriter. We had some engagements to meet with some professionals in music row. We also went to the Blue Bird Cafe. It was an awesome stay, and we will definately be booking this gorgeous home again in the future. It is a great place to retreat, relax and enjoy fellowship with your family and or friends. A great get a way.

                            This rental is by far the nicest one I've gone to. The owner was so nice and easy to work with, and there really aren't words for the property and the hill that leads up to it! Everything was taken care of while we were there. If there was a need, the owner took care of it immediately. There were six ladies that came to Nashville for a conference, and this property was perfect for us to come back to to debrief and relax. Thank you so so much for everything. I would love to come for a stay again!

                            We booked this home for a wedding weekend. Our son and daughter in law were getting married at Front Porch Farms and both groom's/bride's families shared this house. First, let me say that this is one of the most beautifully and well constructed log homes I have ever seen. The interior was just stunning, yet so inviting and comfortable; spacious, but cozy. The kitchen was great and well equipped (we made desserts for the wedding). Wonderful front and back decks. Everything was very clean too. My husband and I were lucky enough to have the master bedroom/bath and the master shower was like nothing I've ever seen. We can't wait to come back sometime when we don't have a hectic wedding schedule and can really enjoy the house and surrounding property. Thanks so much to the owners/property manager who were very helpful and made the rental hassle free! :)

                            Great home outside of Nashville. The home was lovely and well equipped with anything you would need for cooking or making your stay comfortable. There were 5 women who came for a girls trip and the home was large enough for all of us to spread out and even conduct a morning yoga class in the living room. June was very helpful with making suggestions for spa appointments, shopping, and even recommended a chef who came to the home and prepared a meal for us one evening. It was excellent! You really feel like you are out in the country if that is what you like. We made daily trips to Nashville which is about a 35 minute drive, but enjoyed our secluded home in the country as well. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

                            Six long-time friends ran away to Nashville for a long weekend and were fortunate to rent this gorgeous log home! It had everything you could want in your own home --- large rooms, comfortable furniture, tasteful decor, a restaurant level kitchen, and a lovely deck off the back. We felt like real chefs cooking on their fabulous stove....lots of fun! The master bath is an excursion all by itself....rain forest shower head --- everyone wanted to shower in there! The owners have anticipated our every need. Hopefully, we will rent again as we had a blast and got the news that in the spring, the Country Music Hall of Fame will triple their space and exhibits! Always a great reason to return. This home provided us that quiet respite at the end of our busy days where we could all relax, enjoy the comfortable furniture and enjoy each other's company.

                            Mom, Dad and 4 Adult Children enjoyed a long weekend get away to celebrate my Brother's 50th Birthday. Everyone was so pleased with the Cabin when we arrived, and things only got better! The House was in perfect order and super clean. We enjoyed all areas of the living space, and we were all comfortable inside and outside of the house. The house sits on top of a knob and is all to itself, the yard area was mowed and well cared for. We quickly learned how to manage traveling up and down the steep driveway. Don't hesitate to rent this lovely hill top hideaway.

                            Our girls' weekend at the Retreat was absolutely incredible. The house is an easy 20 minute drive from downtown, and a $70 fare from airport. Once you get up the driveway (do NOT attempt to carry your bags up - make the cab/driver take you!) the cabin and grounds are breathtaking. Every detail carefully thought out and all the furnishings and amenities are new and top notch. From the chef-worthy kitchen to the swanky master bathroom - despite having two others in the house I think everyone waited turns for the rain shower! The deck was great for lounging and grilling, and the living area offered a great space for socializing. Perfect mix of seclusion, comfort, and indulgence. The communication before, during our stay, and after was great and we felt completely cared for the entire stay. We're already scheming a return trip!
