Absolutely beautiful!! Very peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time! Donna has done a beautiful job with Calico Retreat!! She made our time in Nashville enjoyable! We felt right at home! It was nice to have a quiet, relaxing place to go after being downtown Nashville all day. We are definitely coming back, and will share our great experience with friends and family! By far the nicest place we have ever stayed at! Can’t say Thank you enough!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Donna’s studio apartment and so did my fur baby, Reba! I loved the way the place was decorated. Donna was a great hostess. She provided many extras for anyone who may have left something at home. It was a wonderful get away from home. Nashville was about 20 minutes away and Donna was ready with brochures of points of interest. And, I really enjoyed my quiet time there!

Amazing retreat with exceptional host

  • 5 of 5

Amazing reception with Donna waiting in the drive as we pulled up. She walked us through the property and chatted with us welcoming us beyond expectations. Our fur babies were provided food bowls, treats, leashes and a fenced backyard to roam. The comforts of Donna's place is thought out and every need provided for. Donna's prior experience in the hospitality field is noticed and much appreciated. The area is so very quiet and quaint. The picture shows a cabinet of drawers, however, a small Danby stove has been added instead which I would of prepared for had I of known a stove had been added for meal preparation with food we brought initially. We will be back in the future!

Very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience here. Donna was so welcoming and had anything and everything there that you could imagine that we may have needed if we had forgotten it. And we did enjoy a few of the snacks and drinks she had provided also. And going outside and enjoying the yard and her friendly dogs because we are dog lovers and had left ours home this time. We would love to return and bring ours next time. I have already told a couple people about this place and plan on telling others. I highly recommend it. I definitely love the decor and it is so cozy. And is close to several smaller towns or if you want to go to Nashville not that far from their either. My favorite thing is waking up in the morning and being able to go out on the front porch and just listen to nature.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for those kind words. Tami and Steve and their daughter Andrea were really nice people, and it makes me happy that they enjoyed Calico Acres as much as I do. They are certainly animal lovers and our pets loved all the attention they received from them. It was Andrea’s birthday and I thank this great family for spending time at our place . Thanks for spreading the word about our place to your friends, come back anytime. Sincerely, Donna

The property was very clean and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our family vacation in Tennessee. We only stayed two nights at Donna's place but immediately wished we had stayed longer. Donna is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. She is the epitome of southern hospitality. Not only because of her kind, warm spirit but also because she provided everything we could possibly need or want to feel right at home. The place was clean, well furnished and all the beds were comfortable which is more than I can say for the place we stayed when we got to Pigeon Forge. Our dogs were welcomed with treats, bowls, toys and extra leashes in case we needed them. The backyard made having them with us so much easier. It is a short drive to Nashville but far enough out of the city. We will definitely be back, next time for a longer stay. I have already recommended this place to several people and will continue to do so.
