About the Property

1200 sq ft 2bed apt in quiet beautiful setting [local permit? why, yes #2034798]

Slightly Off Retreat is truly a gem: spacious, fun, peaceful, 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 adorable apartment features a full bath, 2 bedrooms (queen size and full size beds), huge den with sectional, full kitchen and utility room. 4 people is typical, although 2 more can sleep in the den (queen air mattress provided). Located on the bottom level of our 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: a quiet retreat situated next to a golf course with wooded acreage behind us. Enjoy the view from our awesome porch and the quiet solitude 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 and eat fantastic food.

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:)
