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!

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough of how much we enjoyed our stay at Kelli's place. Kelli was very friendly and accommodating and made us feel right at home. Apartment was more than spacious enough for four adults. Wish my kids were were still young and at home because they would have loved this place with all of the board games, movies, bikes, sports equipment, tire swings etc. The kitchen had everything we needed including a well stocked "pay it forward" fridge that we took advantage of. The peaceful porch overlooking the golf course was an oasis. Will definitely be back!

Memory maker place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This location is terrific for visiting Nashville. Wow! We and our kids (9,7,6) had a tremendously fun time on the tire swing, pretending to be stars on the stage, playing mini pool (we now have one in our home because they loved it so very much), walking to a lake for the eclipse, eating dinner outside at a nearby restaurant while listening to live music, visiting nearby downtown & Vanderbilt, go-karts, and chilling on the porch. I booked it because they had been begging us to install a tire swing at our house (our trees just won't support it) and the swing won for the best thing in Nashville for them. I even went on it and it was crazy fun. Only was able to see Kelli a bit, but she's super nice. Place was wonderful. Will book for sure if we are ever back in Nashville. Thanks so much!

Nashville's golden ticket "

  • 5 of 5

If your reading this then you have found the golden ticket!! Word's here cannot justify this perfect retreat. You could not ask anything more from your hostess Kelli. She's the best & is always there for anything or any questions you may have. Our girl's visit to Nashville was relaxing & entertaining & the best part of returning to the "retreat" was to spend time on the porch. In fact 80% of the time spent at the house was on the porch. We planned our destinations for the evening & day there as well as morning coffee & breakfast & evening beverages. Future visit's & there will be many more we will be coming back here. Already miss it. Already planning for early spring/summer 2018 visit. This IS it. LOOK NO MORE...nothing else you find will compare to this hidden gem.. Close to everything & short Uber ride. If you pass this up, your loss is someone else's lotto win!!

Thanks Kelly..

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

We came for 4 nights with my in laws and really enjoyed the Slightly Off retreat. It's super clean and super comfy, for young and old alike. Kelli plays the perfect host and was very considerate of our needs. Would highly recommend to all.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! My best friend and I took our teenage girls to a concert. As soon as we arrived here we were so excited!! The environment was great! The home was so clean and had everything we needed! Kelli was so awesome and helped us with Uber as we are from a small town and had never used it. She even had a nice bottle of wine for us mom's waiting on us. It is very private and was perfect for us. We can't wait to come back and stay longer! So glad we found this gem! 😍
