About the Property
Unique, historic and hand-built log house with large yard, in East Nashville
My great grandfather built this charming log house in the 1930s to accommodate his large family. As a railway worker and renaissance man, he reused and re-purposed materials to build the home- the ceiling joists from the railway roundhouse service station were used for the walls, boxcar wood now serves as the hardwood floors, and marble from Union Station lines the bathroom floors. Much of this neighborhood used to be the family farm and has a musical history of hosting bands from the Opry and Nashville recording artist.
The home features 2 king bed rooms, 2 queen bed rooms, and has three full baths. Each bedroom has individual, private locks.
The home is only four miles to downtown and is located in the heart of popular East Nashville, walking distance to shops and restaurants, where you can get coffee, ice cream, drinks, dinner and souvenirs. The house is on a corner lot with a large front yard and a gravel driveway that allows access from both streets. The front porch swing and rocking chair are great places to relax and enjoy the neighborhood.
The home is furnished, has central heat and air conditioning and ceiling fans, wifi Internet, and Comcast cable with a large HD TV. The house also has a dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, coffeemaker, toaster, kettle and a compact washer and dryer. A bus stop is located just footsteps away where Tillman Lane meets Porter Road.
The Sun King and Ice Queen rooms are divided by a full bathroom. The bathroom doors may be locked from the inside and outside for privacy. The Sun King features a modern decor with a king bed, large chest of drawers, closet, bedside table, small table and chair, ceiling fan and sun-blocking curtains. The Ice Queen features an antique decor with a queen bed and a twin bed, bedside table, mirrored closet.
The Green Queen bedroom features a queen bed, mirrored closet, chest of drawers, chair, ceiling fan and small bedside table/bench. This room also has an attached study area with two futon chairs.
The Sea King bedroom has a private exterior entrance. The room features a king bed, ceiling fan, two closets, large chest of drawers made by the Amish, a bench, small table, and mirror with coat/key hooks.
The Log House is in a bustling residential and commercial neighborhood of East Nashville. Shops and restaurants are two blocks away on Porter Road and Eastland, and the popular Five Points area is about 2 miles away. Downtown Nashville, Lower Broadway, Riverfront and many main tourist attractions are about 4 miles away. It usually takes around 10 -13 minutes to get from the Log House to downtown and a cab is approximately $11 for two people. We also have Uber and Lyft and a lot of those drivers are available in East Nashville. Taxis are typically only available outside of the airport or downtown.
From the Log House to Green Hills in the heart of West Nashville a cab for two people will be about $26 and it takes about 20 minutes if you use the Interstate to travel the 13 miles.
There is usually a flat rate from the airport to any location of about $25.
We require a two night minimum reservation. Special restrictions apply for CMA Fest.
Check-in is typically from noon on, unless we have a guest checking-out the day of your arrival. If we have a check-out and check-in on the same day, your check-in time will most likely be from 4pm on. Check-out time is usually before noon. If we have a guest checking-in the same day as your check-out, your check-out time will be before or at 10 a.m
Please note the Log House is located in the heart of a residential and commercial neighborhood. We ask that all guests are respectable of the neighborhood and must keep noise levels within appropriate levels and city ordinance time frames.
Please note that TN requires a 9.25% sales tax, a 6% Occupancy tax and a $2.50 occupancy tax per night of your reservation. VRBO only lets you list one tax through their system so all reservations will have an additional tax invoice. Please note that due to the Nashville short-term rental law, no vacation rental is allowed to have more than 12 guests or 4 bedrooms.
Feel free to inquire with any questions.

About: Hello! I'm a native Nashvillian and my family has lived in East Nashville for generations.
Why East Nashville, Nashville, TN, USA:
My great grandfather built this property in the 1930s to accommodate his large family. He was a renaissance man, re-purposing and reusing railway materials to hand build the house. In his day, the Log House was where the Nashville railway lines stopped and the country began. Today the property is in the heart of popular East Nashville yet the house and land give you a relaxed Music City county feel while being footsteps away to the city action. The Log House is about four miles from downtown Nashville and just blocks from shops, bars, and restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Historic, unique Log House in East Nashville- from the hand-built structure to the large yard- the home is just footsteps away from shops and restaurants in East Nashville and has convenient access to downtown and the remainder of Nashville.
