Willow Springs/Spread Out in East Nashville/Pet Friendly

Bedrooms 4
Space 2 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms and 2 baths. 6 miles from downtown and about the same to Opryland.

Willow Springs, is almost urban but just removed enough to be in a neighborhood of single family, mid-century brick ranch homes on a tree lined street. Homes of this era were built on large lots surrounded by open space and big trees. The driveway takes you downhill to plenty of parking. The keyless front door gives you easy, secure access. Willow Springs has 3 bedrooms on the main level, 1 king, 1 queen and 1 twin with room for aerobed. The upstairs bath has a retro feel with a tub/shower combination and lots of green tile. Downstairs is the 4th bedroom with a queen bed and a 2nd full bath. The two wicker chairs have a unique story. They were purchased/recycled from a local Nashville radio station where they graced their waiting room. You could say, "Willie Nelson sat here".

The kitchen is complete with dishes, toaster, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher. Dining space for 4 at the kitchen table, 4-6 more in the dining room. Downstairs there is a 3rd table for games. The laundry room has a full sized washer and dryer. Wireless internet is available throughout the house. Bed linens and towels are provided. Starter supplies like paper towels, soap and TP are also stocked. Pack n Play portable crib and Aerobed are available for a small additional fee.

All of our homes are professionally cleaned and maintained and will be ready when you arrive. With your confirmed reservation you will be provided with the door code combination along the home’s address and other vital information.

The backyard is big and open to a seasonal creek. This could pose a limit to some families with small children. If you have time in your busy sightseeing itinerary the Willow Springs home is only a block away from the northern end of the Shelby Bottoms Greenway trailhead. A level, paved one mile loop makes for a pleasant morning bird watching adventure. One day I stuck my head through the trees along the path and had a “Tom Sawyer” moment. There on the bank of the Cumberland River sat the General Jackson, a grand restored paddle wheeler. It is moored at the Opryland headquarters and takes off each day on tours down the river. From the house you can hear the classic “toot - toot” of the stern wheeler.

Willow Springs is in the Inglewood area of East Nashville. It is about 6 miles from the downtown center and about the same distance to the Opryland resort area. This trendy area of East Nashville/Inglewood is best know for easy stops for lunch like Mitchell’s deli in the Riverside Village.

About Bryan and Stephanie

Our story is a little unusual. We wear two fairly distinct hats. Our first hat looks more like the almost retired, middle aged couple in Nashville. We manage our vacation home rental business and rehab houses for resale, enjoy live music, local dining and travel. Zip - across country and put on the other hat. Mom, dad, grandma, grandpa and Neighbors Bar-B-Que. While the day to day operations of running the restaurant have been turned over to the daughter and son-in-law, there are still many other details that require our attention. In stark contrast to the urban lifestyle in Nashville, Cromberg, California has a sign that reads - “Population 140”. Our tiny little community in the mountains boasts some of the nicest smelling trees in the country, pretty lakes, my cute big red barn in the back yard, and a great little local restaurant that serves up some great southern style comfort food.

Back in 2006 when we first started the vacation home rental idea in Nashville, this whole concept was in its infancy. Only a handful of folks pioneered the trend that has continued to grow. We took the idea from our experience as innkeepers in Cromberg. We sold our housekeeping cottage resort and didn’t want to completely give up the contact with travelers. I wanted to create a real place for short term visitors to feel like they were participating in a neighborhood, thus able to connect better with the real folks who make up the community. The concept caught on and Nashville has become a top travel destination.

Bryan and Stephanie purchased this house in 2006

Why Bryan and Stephanie chose Inglewood

Inglewood is an established family neighborhood. It has been rediscovered and just recently posted the highest gain in real estate values for the last two years. Very centrally located to all things Nashville and middle Tennessee. The 10 minute drive to downtown is quick and easy. Dining, shopping and groceries all are close by. Willow Springs a perfect space for a quiet morning walk over to the Cumberland River or just a quick lap around the block.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

For what we were looking for, the house exceeded our expectations. The main reason why we selected this place was it was close to our wedding ceremony. Since I made my wife get married at 10am, wanted her to have a short drive to the mansion. The ladies had a nice time, and both families were able to spend time talking and bonding.
