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!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at slightly off over Thanksgiving and had the best time! Our family of 4 (me, hubs, 3y/o and 11month old) plus my in-laws were able to stay comfortably in this wonderfully quirky apartment. Our 3 y/o loved all the toys and movie posters and we were relieved to find a nice selection of Disney movies to occupy him while we made dinner and some Monty Python for us after bedtime. I was able to enjoy some very peaceful morning runs through nearby Shelby park and we loved having the option to eat at restaurants within walking distance (The Post was so good!). The swings in the backyard and a hunt for golf balls were some other favorite activities. Kelli was so thoughtful and welcoming and really did make us feel right at home. It didn't take more than 5 mins to drive into downtown and we can't wait to come back and explore Nashville even more!

Well cared for apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

A warm and welcoming place in a quiet and charming Nashville neighborhood. Enjoyed walking in the nearby historic mineral spring park. Uber into downtown Nashville is just $5, so everything is very convenient. View from the open porch onto the golf course is lovely. Kelli is a fair and kind host.

Great Place in Nashville

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were so glad that we found the Slightly Off Retreat in East Nashville. The accommodations were quaint and very clean. Location is excellent for anything that you would want to do while in the city as Uber and Lyft are easy to use and affordable. If you want to play golf it is as close as the end of the driveway and you certainly won't have to buy golf balls.

We stayed here while we were in town for the Adele concert and completely enjoyed our time. We were shown great hospitality and we certainly loved not only being able to spend some time with Kelli, but with Louie and Olive as well.

We will certainly stay here again the next time we have the opportunity to visit Nashville. Thank you Kelli for a great place to stay!!!

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by this rental. It is clean, comfortable and very accessible to the downtown area

of Nashville. It is in a quiet neighborhood & we enjoyed having coffee on the porch each morning.

The owner, Kelli, is a terrific hostess. She lives on the property, is very friendly and checks to makes sure

that everything you need is available. We highly recommend this beautiful rental!

Quirky, wonderful retreat for 3 generations of our family to stay in Nashville!!

  • 5 of 5

Slightly off retreat was a perfect place for our family (grandparents, adult "kids" and actual kids) to stay during a week in Nashville! The grown-ups appreciated the peace and quiet and being able to make our own meals in the fun retro kitchen and our three year-old LOVED the collection of toys, movies, and great yard (with 2 swings, a stage and golf ball hunting). Kelli was a fabulous hostess (really responsive before and during our visit) and we'd definitely stay here again if we return to Nahville!
