Property description

Thistletop Inn is a Bed and Breakfast, in a Luxurious Post and Beam, 7500 sq ft home, hiden away on 11 acres in Goodlettsville, 15 minutes north of downtown Nashville.

Rich with historic architectural artifacts, Thistletop was constructed by master builder, Braxton Dixon, whose iconic list includes Johnny Cash, Rob Orbison and Trisha Yearwood, to name a few. The 7500 sq ft house is composed of rugged cypress and pine beams rescued from an Indiana train station and the Nashville Candy Factory. Inside and out is bold stonework collected from nearby Old Hickory Lake. Front doors, circa 1860 hail from a stagecoach station between Nashville and Louisville. There is a two story rock fireplace which comes from a 200 yr old farm in Ky. You can spend all day in amazement just gazing at all of the interesting elements comprised at Thisletop.

Our premiere private loft, The Dauphine suite, is like a stone French chateau, with floor to ceiling windows with amazing views of rolling hills and beautiful sunsets. Each end of the loft includes matching balconies with stained glass windows and massive 12' French doors. The floors are 2x16 plank wood heart pine. The furnishings include a king sized bed with luxury linen, a couch with chair and ottoman, a 40' Flat screen, DVD Player, Roku with Netflix, private bath, luxurious robes, gas fireplace, and a large library of books. Also included in this very romantic and very private suite is a fridge, microwave, and keurig coffee maker. You will never want to leave this amazing retreat.

We also have a second room called the 'Taos'. This queen sized room boasts a large stone wall, beamed ceilings, private bath, fridge, robes plus all of the luxury that you would expect at Thistletop. Since we have 2 rooms, one room may be available and not the other. Check out our website for more information.

Thistletop gives you the feel of a lodge in the mountains of Colorado, with its 4 fireplaces, a media room, large living room with beautiful leather furniture, accented with an array of eclectic art. The large Dining room is lit by an antler chandelier and fireplace. The kitchen is wall to wall windows and has been described by other guests as being in a tree house. Downstairs is the rec room which includes a pool table, foosball, game table, 46' flat screen with DVD player and a wii. Or you can sit at the full bar and watch a ball game on the other screen. Or relax in the hot tub after a work out with our exercise equipment.

And best of all....you get a nice, big, hot breakfast in the morning and complimentary snacks and beverages, all included in your stay!



We also rent a Carriage House called Elysian if you are looking for a more private stay. It does not include use of the amenities in the Inn, but you can pay an up charge for breakfast in the Inn.Call us for more details or go to our website.

Come stay with us. You'll be glad you did!

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Fred and Mary Jane Peace would like to welcome you to the Thistletop Inn. With years of traveling experience, we understand how important it is to feel comfortable while you're away from home. We know that our home can create that feeling for you. We want you to relax, enjoy, find peace, and eat well. There is a great energy at Thistletop and we know you'll feel it too. You will always want to come back.

Why the Owner Chose Madison, Nashville, TN, USA:
We chose this property because of the architect. Braxton Dixons ability to assemble post and beam and stone in connection with the site....absolutely amazing. Many of the same craftsmen worked on building the Johnny Cash house in Hendersonville. Truly a work of art.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The comforts of home, the aesthetics of an amazing architectural environment, the solitude of being distant from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a cup of coffee in a comfortable chair watching migratory birds at the pond, a leisurely stroll in the woods, being fifteen minutes to downtown... these are a few of my favorite things about Thistletop.
