The home is has a kitchen fully stocked with all utensils and cookware to prepare a large meal, there's lots of room for everyone to comfortably spread out with two 'hang out' areas indoors, a large deck/patio out back with a grill and a totally private backyard (can't see neighbors) as you take in the peaceful, easy feeling of the wooded, riverbed.

MUSIC CITY GETAWAY purchased this house in 2014

Why MUSIC CITY GETAWAY chose Crieve Hall

This amazing, newly renovated home, its big back yard, private wooded lot and picturesque river bed make for a perfect place to stay for travelers who love Nashville, TN. PLUS, it has great *Music City* history as it was the long-time home & creative workplace to a famed country music songwriter with hits by legends like Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Marty Robbins and many more!

What makes this house unique

There are so many great interior AND exterior home benefits! But this comfortable retreat's easy 7 mile path to the heart of Downtown Nashville as well as short drive to Historic Franklin make it the perfect 'in-between' location for people who want to do and see a lot during their visit. Also, a few MAJOR shopping malls are only 10-15 minute drive & seemingly endless of eating options are within minutes from this great home. ALL THIS while maintaining a sense that you're otherwise nestled away somewhere up in the Great Smoky Mountains. Most homes with a backyard 'outdoor lifestyle environment' like this are at least 30 minutes away from Nashville. BOOK NOW to see, experience & believe it! It's a GREAT Music City Getaway!!

Families reunite

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family reunion on a small scale. Darlene gives immediate feedback and is available at a moments notice. The home was lovely, clean and more than enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably . The kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal, we loved the home so much our group did not go out for dinners we just stayed in and cooked ourselves. The backyard with the creek was a hit with the small children and provided that extra touch for sitting and enjoying the evening air. Thank you Darlene for making our stay exceptional, we will be staying here again.

Beautiful home in a convenient location

The house was absolutely perfect - beautifully decorated, spacious, in a good location. The grounds were beautiful as well and the host was very friendly and helpful. Could not recommend this rental more!

50th and 60th Birthdays Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. Everything you said it was in the description. We took family photos down by the babbling brook which was a great backdrop. Brian was kind enough to take some time out of his busy day to take some group shots. This was the first time in over 15 years our family was together. Darlene was helpful and always available by phone. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone I know. Just a little insight, 5 nights is no where near enough time to hit up all of the bars downtown, we did our best but in the end it wasn't enough. So. another trip to Nashville is in our future. We already know where to stay, "MUSIC CITY GETAWAY"

A rural feel in a residential neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been more pleased with the property. The backyard was the selling point for our party as we spent most of our time at the house outside enjoying the grill, shade, and the view of the creek. Even though the house is residential the private backyard gives privacy and a rural feel. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful, woodsy, home away from home, Darlene is awesome

  • 5 of 5

My company in Nashville has software engineers scattered across the country, and we all flew in to stay in this home together for a week. We worked by the babbling creek, grilled out on the enormous deck grill, played frisbee golf in the spacious back yard, and had a wonderful time with the piano and guitar inside. Super comfortable and well-decorated living spaces, great fully-equipped kitchen for preparing our meals, couldn't have asked for more. There was even a can of OFF for battling the bugs of the foresty location!

By far the best feature of the home, though, was the owner. Darlene is kind, responsive, and an incredible host. With my team needing to work during our stay, Darlene happily tested her internet speed for us ahead of time to make sure it met our needs. And when there was connectivity issues shortly before our arrival, she had a whole new internet service installed for us! She brought a backup propane tank "just in case it's running low" when I asked if the grill were available for use, she proactively left us a new coffee pot to make sure there was no lapse in the caffeine flow, and made it clear we could reach out to her any time. Our stay was so smooth and carefree because of her attentiveness.

We'll absolutely look into staying here again for future team get-togethers.

Kemmerer, wy

Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so much fun to stay at! It was the perfect size! Yes, there is only 2 bathrooms but there are a lot of mirrors that it was easy to get ready. The backyard so so private you wouldn't even know that you are in a small neighborhood. We spent every night out on the back deck. Darlene was so easy to work with and so accommodating! It was so much fun to be able to stay with family and all be together. It is very close to downtown Nashville. Definitely would stay here again. Thank you Darlene for making our trip so much fun!!!!
