About the property

Are you looking for a great place to stay in Nashville? Treat yourself to this 2 BR/1 bath cottage apt. It sleeps 4 comfortably and can accommodate up to 6 with two rollaway beds. The twin beds in bedroom 1 can be converted to a king-size bed making the home perfect for two couples. Located in the heart of the hip East Nashville, walkable to the 5-Points retail district, Eastland Avenue and Shelby Bottoms Greenway and less than a 10-minute drive to Downtown attractions or a $6-$8 Uber/Lyft ride. Upon booking, guests will receive my personal "Insider's Guide" to Nashville. Whether here for work or play, I want you to feel at home. Let me be the first to say, "Welcome to Nashville!”

The Space

With its original hardwood floors, doors, trim, hardware, and light fixtures, and with modern conveniences in the kitchen and bathroom, the home will not disappoint you. The home is located in a prime location for guests to enjoy strolling to Barista Parlor, Sweet 16th Bakery, Three Crow Bar, Marche, Bar308 and many other indie shops in the area. Enjoy quick access to Downtown and all other parts of Nashville. We feel this space and location will provide you with that bucolic Nashville experience.

We want you to enjoy your stay and feel at home. WI-FI and cable TV are provided. The kitchen is stocked with essential cookware and utensils for guests to cook and dine if they wish. Complimentary snacks, drinks, and coffee are provided. Fire up the gas grill on the outdoor patio and enjoy dining al fresco.

Guest Access

Check-in process is a breeze with a keyless entry. The access code will be sent to you the Monday prior to arrival.

Interaction with Guests

As a host, I am committed to helping my guests feel comfortable and providing recommendations. Upon booking, guests will receive my guide to Nashville, which includes a list of our favorites and details about the cottage. I am always available by phone and love to meet and greet my guests if they wish.

The Neighborhood


This East Nashville neighborhood offers an assortment of cool coffee shops, super-hip cocktail bars, amazing restaurants, unique local shops and galleries, all within walking distance. If it’s the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee you desire, golf, cycling, hiking or just a good walk, all are nearby at Shelby Bottoms. If you are here attending a conference at the Music City Conference Center, you are a 10-minute easy commute away. Inquire with the host for further details. Downtown attractions are a short drive away where you can experience live music, famous Honky Tonks, Ryman Auditorium, Johnny Cash Museum, Grammy award-winning Nashville Symphony, Titans football and Predators hockey, just to name a few…again, “Welcome to Nashville!”

Guests without a car can easily walk to the grocery store (Kroger’s or Aldi’s), Barista Parlor (coffee shop), and many restaurants along with local retail shops.

Getting Around

The cottage is under 2 ½ miles from the Music City Conference Center, Titan's Stadium, honkey tonk bars, The Ryman Auditorium, Cumberland Park, Bridgestone Arena, and much more. We love using Lyft or Uber, and it’s only a $6-$8 ride to Downtown. Public transportation is available with the bus stop only two short blocks away. The apartment is centrally located in Nashville making driving times short to all the different areas in the city.

Extra Details

The cottage will be decorated for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The home is a historic duplex with a separate apartment on the 2nd floor.

About Brigitte Lange

Kris and I have lived in East Nashville for 9 years. We have three children, Tennyson (6), Eliot (4), and our third and last child Whit (born December 15, 2014). I am a Speech Pathologist who specializes in adults with strokes, but I am currently staying at home treasuring the moments with Tennyson, Eliot, and Whit. Kris is Director, Sales | Textbooks for Ingram Content Group.

We hope you will fall in love with our neighborhood as we have. We love the proximity to Downtown, the walkability, and the ubiquity of local, independent restaurants, coffee shops, and retail shops. Most importantly, we love the strong sense of community provided by our neighbors, and we hope we can extend that arm to you.

Brigitte Lange purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Brigitte Lange chose Nashville

We discovered this charming, historic neighborhood because of its proximity to Downtown, its strong sense of community, and its strong support of independent restaurants and retail. This historic neighborhood has a strong sense of culture and lots of creative energy. Everyone believes in knowing their neighbors. We love that we can get anywhere in the city in 15 minutes or less. Our neighborhood is appalled by traffic and chooses to not support gas companies :)

What makes this cottage unique

We love the location of our house. We can walk to the grocery store, Butcher Shop, Dry Cleaners, the best coffee shop in town (Barista Parlor), bars, restaurants, the post office, the bank, the hardware store, and retail shops all within 5 minutes.

Excellent accommodations, great location and exceptional customer service

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is clean and comfortable. It was stocked with necessities I have rarely seen in other rentals. Brigette went over and above to accommodate my changing plans by responding quickly to my emails and checking in during our stay to make sure everything was satisfactory. I highly recommend this rental.

We were in town for the Tough Mudder. This was our 3rd state to travel to. The place was absolutely adorable. It was walking distance to eateries, thank you for the good suggestions.. . I was only 15minutes from the airport. I used Lyft for the 1st time ever. I would definately recommend it!! I would stay there again...

A long weekend from Michigan

  • 4 of 5

This house was very clean an comfortable.

We had a great time here, and the neighborhood is a lot of fun. We had another couple with us so the house was just the right size.

Brigitte was very easy to communicate with when we had any questions.

Thank you for the stay

An Excellent Friend-aversary Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were all impressed by the cleanliness and the many amenities included. Walked to lunch at Marche and Martin's Grocery to buy breakfast things. Such a great location. Short Uber and Lyft rides to Nashville. Owner was quick to respond to any questions and with very helpful ideas and suggestions about Nashville. We would definitely stay in this Urban Cottage again!

Cute, charming, convenient...

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect "home base" for our bachelorette party weekend. The only issue we had was that housekeeping had forgot to clean it before we got there; she had gotten her days confused or something and thought no one was checking in that day. The owner was just apologetic and offered to refund $100 of our trip and her husband also dropped off some "I'm sorry" wine the next day. Very kind people with a beautiful place to stay in Nashville. I would stay here or any of their locations again!
