Why Ben & Elaine Pearson chose Belmont/Hillsboro
We chose this home primarily because Ben came here to shoot album covers and we are only blocks from music row. We love it here and expect that it will be in the family for generations. Most of the must see spots are less than a 10 min drive without even getting on the interstate. It is walking distance from Belmont University for any families wishing to check it out or attend graduation. It is perfect for a family reunion, college reunion, groups coming to attend a wedding. Many houses advertise that they can sleep 10-12 but this house can do that without taking away the large common areas used to gather and celebrate. Walking to 12 excellent restaurants from our front door is a bonus since sometimes it's nice to not deal with traffic and parking. We love hosting here, it's so inviting!
What makes this House unique
This 100 year old house with it's classic layout and high ceilings lets you breathe, relax, pause and reflect. Life goes by too fast. There are fun little corners to explore. Many people have said it reminds them of their grandma's house. built in 1916 there are many unique features that just aren't seen in houses built after the 1940's. In spite of it's age this house is energy efficient and is cool in summer and warm in winter thanks to our Geothermal water furnace. Take time to just be. Selah...

The Selah house was perfect for our Bachelorette Party Weekend! The house was clean, well stocked, and perfectly located - we felt safe all weekend. Ben & Elaine were available for questions and recommendations. We can't wait to return!!
Beautiful large home. Great location. We were able to have our entire family stay together for our visit to Nashville. Ben and Elaine were very accommodating and had some initial provisions in the fridge to help start our vacation. Would highly recommend.
Great spot for Vanderbilt reunion
Really enjoyed staying at Ben and Elaine’s place. The house is in a perfect location. The front and back porches are great for relaxing in nice weather. Inside of the house has unique and charming decor. The bedrooms are all a good size, and the A/C and WiFi worked great. Nice kitchen and common areas too. Ben and Elaine are kind and responsive hosts as well. Can’t ask for much more than that!
