Concierge services include:

And, it’s easy to catch the free Music City Circuit, with three bus lines serving downtown Nashville and The Gulch neighborhood. See more at www.nashvilleMTA.org

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Jane Hardy, Owner/Host – I’m a sustainability enthusiast, neighborhood activist, and networker. Professionally, I’m a Strategic Career Counselor. I'm passionate about historic buildings, gardening (especially low-maintenance, fruit and nut-bearing vines, shrubs and trees), family and friends. I thrive on making sure our guests enjoy their stays in our guesthouse and their visits to Nashville. Will Hardy Kochtitzky – our 21-year-old son is a Junior at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. He loves camping/ backpacking, urban gardening, the Spanish language, and he's studying environmental and earth sciences. Tom Hardy Kochtitzky – our 18-year-old son just graduated from Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School in downtown Nashville and will be a freshman studying photography at Pratt Institute in New York this fall. He’s enthusiastic about photography, Ultimate Frisbee, and longboarding. He's an activist and leader in social justice issues at Nashville's Oasis Center. Both Will and Tom are very responsible. They inspire me to continuously strive to reduce my carbon footprint and have more fun. They enjoy good friends, cousins, and travel.

Why the Owner Chose Nashville:
We love Nashville -- It's a great city with friendly people, four seasons, gorgeous hills, fields and rivers, and lots of fun things to do. Our home and guest house are in a historic neighborhood with big trees and sidewalks. One of Nashville's favorite green spaces, Elmington Park, is right across the street. We love being in a central location, within walking distance to so many great restaurants, shops and parks. We can easily walk to Hillsboro Village, Sylvan Park, Vanderbilt University, and Centennial Park. Nashville's most beautiful historic neighborhoods are all around us, and downtown is just three miles away, a straight shot on the bus. We love the quietness of our home and garden, set in the center of Nashville.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're in a very central location, so driving to almost every Nashville destination is a three to 15 minute trip. A very active bus line is two blocks away. Take walks on sidewalks through our historic neighborhood and Elmington Park which is across the street. Many Nashvillian's favorite locally-owned shops and restaurants are in Hillsboro Village, is one-and-a-half miles away. Nashville is filled with all kinds of live music every night of the week, and the venues are all over town, so our central location is perfect if you're coming to hear music. Enjoy our private patio surrounded by a lush garden full of birds, a grape arbor, flowers and fruit trees. Even adults enjoy our tree house, and you'll meet our six pet hens (no roosters!) that lay delicious organic eggs. Guests often tell us that they love the comfort, peacefulness and beauty of Little House Nashville so much that they don't want to leave. This may be the only LEED Platinum vacation rental in the nation! As well as being energy efficient, that means it's comfortable and healthy -- no toxic paint or cleaning products, all natural fabrics, lots of fresh air, and no drafts! Please see our website www. LittleHouseNashville. com for more information and photos.
