About the property

We have a beautiful 430 sq. ft. riverfront studio on one acre. Here you will find a quiet park-like setting. The studio is fully furnished and equipped. It has a queen bed , sleeping 2 adults comfortably.

You'll have private parking right outside your door. The studio IS attached to our house, but has it's own private entry with no entry from our home. It has a private patio and BBQ grill. There's also a fire pit. If you want to build a fire and sit in the swing by the river, we'll stay out of your way. There's a photo of the pit. It's simple, but does not include the cat.

We DO have animals. 2 dogs, 2 pigs, 4 chickens and 3 cats. They aren't range free. They are kept in a large penned in area on the other side of our home, away from the room, SO...If an occasional dog bark, pig squeal, cats meow or chicken cluck are bothersome to you, then please don't rent the room. We want all of our guests to enjoy the peace and comfort of our property.

We also offer free WiFi and cable.

We are 15 minutes (maybe 16 and a half) from the airport, the downtown honky-tonks, the historic Ryman, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the naked statue in the swanky Gulch (Google it). Twelve minutes from Opryland (Grand Ole Opry and the General Jackson). You'll also be minutes from Rivergate Mall and tons of restaurants.

There is great creative energy here, so it's perfect for songwriters and artists. Its peacefulness is also great for anyone who wants some quiet time away during their downtime. Sorry kids, but the primary renter must be at least 25 years of age. We have pets, but we don't want any in the room -- hopefully for obvious reasons (i.e. poop, scratched and stained stuff). Also, there is no in-room smoking but there is plenty of room outside.

We offer a 10% discount to military, police and firefighters, active or retired. Lawyers and politicians must be prepared to pay an extra $20 a night. :-) Just kidding….or are we?

Papa Johns Pizza and Jet's Pizza deliver here, as does China Wok. Uber services the area as well.

We'll put a Nashville Scene in your room so you can review the goings-on around town.

Oh, and the room comes with Seattle's Best coffee, tea, bottled water, creamer, sugar/white non-sugar stuff.

We're just regular down-to-earth folks. You'll be comfortable. We love our guests, we love having you, and we will help in any way we can to make staying here an awesome experience. I mean, really, we do want a wonderful review and recommendation. :-)

Thanks. Brad and Lisa

Nashville - Riverfront Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A cute little studio apartment located along the Cumberland River. Clean and cozy. Nice quiet neighborhood. Much privacy. Owners provide a treat basket of chocolate chip cookies, grapes and cheese. Nice touch. Lots of extras in the unit - shampoos, toilet paper, shaving cream, toothpaste, bottled water, coffee, tea. Only one small area of improvement: Lots of linens and blankets provided. Not sure if the blankets have been laundered recently. Third stay with my wife and daughter. Will definitely return and recommend to others!

Owner's Response: Hi Thomas. It was so nice to have you all again. We look forward to seeing you again in April. :) The extra linens we gave you were freshly laundered, which is why they weren't in the room. We had forgotten to put them back. Thanks as always for your kind words. Lisa

We spent our Honeymoon here and it was perfect! It was cozy and quiet. The owners were accommodating and helpful. It felt like we were at home. The beautiful river every morning was a great way to wake up from the close proximity to Nashville. Thanks so so much!

Private and cozy place

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. The studio had everything you could ask for and we had tons of privacy. The views are incredible and the location is a quick drive to and from downtown. Brad and Lisa have a charming place with loads of personality and lovable animals. Highly recommended.

True Review

  • 2 of 5

Staying here was OK. The previous reviews are misleading. Staying here is private and relaxing, yet close enough to the hustle bustle of the city Nashville . It is attached to the owner's house they seem nice and did make you feel welcome & yet left you alone. If you don't mind animals like dogs, pigs, and chickens....because they do have them and you will hear them as well as the neighbors dogs. Do not believe this is in any of the reviews that I read. I do like dogs, but people should be aware of them being on site because not everybody like animals. As far as the neighborhood did not see one child actually didn't even see people out and about. Is not the nicest area but not the worst. Wish I could post current photos.

Also.... no chocolate chip cookies 🍪󪠠for us! 😩򚐽򒘉

Owner's Response: Hi there. Thank you very much for your response. We are definitely believers in free speech. We are so very sorry about the cookies. It simply slipped our minds. We try very hard to make our guests feel welcome and at home. We try to make ourselves available for any needs, but we also try to stay out of the way and respect the privacy of our guests. Our home is truly your home. We LOVE our neighborhood. It's an older, well established peaceful hamlet in our area of town, and it's true, there aren't many children here. Mostly older people who take exquisite care of their property. We hope those of you considering renting our lovely space will put much weight behind the 50+ awesome reviews that we have, which are also TRUE from their points of view. Yes, this is Lisa; I'm a huge animal lover. We have many animals, but 99% of our guests have found them charming and sweet. They do not make undo noise, and we are very careful to make sure they stay as quiet as possible when we have guests. We truly want you all to have the experience of going downtown, experiencing the noise and crazy diversity of our great town. And then we want you to come "home" and have peace and quiet and the lovely river for your respite from the hustle. To the guests who wrote this disappointing review, thank you so much for your patronage, your feedback, and for leaving the room so clean. We understand that you won't rent here again, and we wish you much luck in finding just the right place next time you visit Nashville. Not sure I understand the comment about current pictures. Our pictures are current and are a true representation of what you will get if you rent with us. We looking forward to meeting you.
