Overview

About the property

Adorable and spacious 2 bedrm apt in quiet beautiful setting

Slightly Off Retreat is truly a gem: peaceful, spacious, close to everything! A fantastic apartment with idyllic views, quiet surroundings, yet still so close to all Eastside hotspots, and downtown is only 2.5 miles away ($5-10 Uber ride). Coffee shops, some amazing restaurants, bakeries, bars and shops are walking and biking distance. Guaranteed memorable trip:)

With 1200 sq feet of space, this fun apartment features a full bath, 2 bedrooms (queen and full beds), huge den, full kitchen and utility room. 4 people is typical, although 2 more can sleep in the den (queen airbed provided).

Located on the bottom level a beautiful East Nashville home, Slightly Off is completely separated from our residence, with its own entrance, driveway and carport. You will find board games, books, movie channels, free WiFi, DVD/VHS/CD players & DVDs/VHSs to play. Also, guitar, banjo, djembe along with a record player are in the apartment.

It is an unusual find in historic Lockeland Springs, to be situated next to Shelby golf course with wooded acreage behind. Enjoy the view and solitude from an awesome porch while being only minutes away from the Country Music Hall of Fame, museums, and more.

Shelby Park is a large city park next to our home. It features a public golf course, driving range, tennis courts, playgrounds, duck pond, ball fields, and walking paths. It is also part of our city's green way system with miles of green ways to walk, jog, or bike alongside the Cumberland River.

We have 2 friendly dogs (australian shep & great pyr therapy dog) who stay in our portion of the home and the backyard. Most guests never meet them, but holler if you want to!

The lower level of home is completely yours and securely locked from upstairs. You have a full utility room, kitchen, bath, etc.

What do we love about the neighborhood? Everything! Golfers should definitely take advantage of the course. Shelby Bottoms is a great wetlands nature walk - you can bike it 4 miles over a bridge to OpryMills, wave pool, General Jackson, Grand Ole Opry. We are big fans of shows at the historic Ryman -- downtown is so close and you can take advantage of a $5 Uber car ride to go to our fantastic symphony hall, the Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame or one of the many free concerts on the riverfront or courthouse. But we have to say, you can keep to a 1-mile distance of our home and hear tons of music, see great local art, shop unique boutiques and eat at fantastic restaurants.

Let us know what you are looking for in transportation. Bikes can be rented at 5 points - Bus line is close that runs right into downtown - Uber & Lyft are readily available.

Guests have been full of compliments on the place, and their reviews describe it best. You will enjoy your stay as well:)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous!!! Kelli is very warm, friendly, and welcoming; added such nice touches to make us feel welcome. We rented this place for a long girls weekend (3 of us) of 5 nights and we found the apartment perfect in location , size and design. It is very well kept and clean!!!! What a treasure. It was truly more than I expected. I can't wait to go back!

Quiet scenic Nashville rental

  • 5 of 5

Kelli was very responsive to my questions and reservations for travel that was short notice. She was patient as I was traveling and did not have access to email. The apartment was convenient and equipped with everything I needed including food items in the pay it forward fashion. She even left a bottle of wine. It was located on a quiet and scenic area which is a plus for Nashville.

Fun and funky retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The “slightly off retreat” is a peaceful, comfortable and fun place- next door to a golf course- with lots of greenery and beautiful outdoor space. The house is comfortable and fully equipped with everything to make your stay seem like Home. The beds were dreamy and the House was very clean. Roomy, sparkling bathroom has a great tub f soaking! Outdoor porch w twinkle lights and sound system was a great place to sit and sip! Kelli is a great host and easy to communicate with! We will certainly come back here the next time we are in Nashville!

An oasis of calm in a busy town

  • 5 of 5

We had SUCH a great stay here! The house is tucked back out of the way from the hustle and bustle, yet its close enough that you can be downtown in under 10 minutes. SUPER comfy beds and bedding made for great nights of sleep, and the patio was lovely for our late night cocktail conversations and morning coffee injections. Many charming details throughout the place; didn't feel like a rental, felt like we were staying at a friend's place for a few days. Almost wish we hadn't planned so many outings while we were there, would have been nice to take a day and just hang out. Next time to go to Nashville, this is the first place I am looking at for our trip.
