About the Property

1 Bedroom, Sleeps 1-4, Futon Bed (Full) in Living Room

Come stay at Duke's Sanctuary our private guest house with fenced in back yard and separate entrance. You will be close to everything to see in Nashville but still have the privacy/safety and feeling of being at home. We are located in the Vanderbilt/Hillsboro Village and Belmont area. We are in walking distance to a grocery store and walkable to Vanderbilt University/Hillsboro Village and few miles from Belmont. Our neighborhood is safe to walk/run. We are down the street from a bus stop that is a 10-15min Bus ride or Uber ride to downtown Nashville. We are located 10-15min from the Nashville airport. You can save money by staying in and utilize our full kitchen when you just want to retreat. This guest house is 900 square Ft with plenty of room to spread out and not feel cramped. There are french doors leading onto the back porch with plenty of windows to let natural light in. The outdoor seating area is secluded in the back yard with tall fences and plush gardens. There is also a fire pit for late night story telling and S'mores. We also have a Char-Grill for a night you want to hang out grill hotdogs or burgers. We provide cable television and WiFi, washer/dryer, one parking spot with lots of street parking. If you want to get out and about there are countless activities in walking distance for exercise and sight seeing. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance. Our place is ideal for couples, girls weekend, extended stay professionals, families with kids, parents of Vanderbilt or Belmont students, Internship students, relocating to Nashville, or for people that are just tired of the hotel stay, etc. Must be Dog friendly you will have interaction with two very spoiled Australian Shepherd's rescues that share the fenced in back yard but mostly inside in their retreat!
