This vacation rental features unique architectural details and elegant furnishings in a casual and spacious setting where enjoyment and relaxation are top priorities. High-end furniture, local artists’ flair, luxurious linens, and contemporary conveniences are a few of the personal touches. Abundant windows and high ceilings usher in lots of natural light. Décor features stained hard wood floors on the first floor, and plush carpeting on the second with contemporary earth tones and a nod to nature throughout. The spacious dining and living areas flow into an open kitchen well-stocked with amenities for preparing meals large and small. Enjoy your kitchen creations at the reclaimed wood dining table which seats 10, the marble counter top bar for 4, or al fresco at the bistro table on the spacious wooden deck overlooking the lush green yard and flower gardens. With its occasional chair and two sleeper sofas, the ultra-comfortable den is the hub for conversation, TV-viewing, and relaxation among friends and family.
The first bedroom boasts a queen-size, walnut sleigh bed, large closet, and local photos of Nashville’s Shelby Bottoms and true gems of Vanderbilt University's campus arboretum. An en suite full bath with tub and shower, tile floors, marble counter tops, and double sinks has pocket door entrances and is shared with the second bedroom, a contemporary casual setting with a small closet and a queen-size bed and dresser crafted from reclaimed wood.
The spacious master suite features a queen-size bed with a 20th-century style iron and linen headboard, brass and iron night stands, vaulted ceiling, and a glamorous chandelier (see the photo!). The spacious suite includes a private full bath with shower, tile floors, marble counter tops, double sinks, and modern cabinetry. All bedrooms accommodate two people.
We have two custom built sofas in the living room that fold out to provide a comfortable bed for the last 4 members of your party. These mattresses are quite comfortable, just over a year old, and have received very positive reviews from our previous guests.
There is off-street parking for two cars in the back of the house and free street parking on Shelby Avenue. Public bus routes, rideshare, taxis, bike lanes, and sidewalks are abundant.
We’re a five-minute ride (or 15-minute walk) to Nissan Stadium, downtown Nashville, Music City Center, the Frist Center for Visual Arts, Bridgestone Arena, Ascend Amphitheater, the Schermerhorn Sympony Center, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, and many of Music City’s thriving entertainment spots, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, the revered Ryman Auditorium, live-music venues, such as Tootsie’s and The Stage, and numerous rooftop restaurants, pubs, and dance halls.
Within a 10-15 minute drive are restaurants and shops in the Gulch, the 12 South & Melrose Neighborhoods, several college campuses (Vandy, Fisk, Belmont, TSU), the Green Hills Mall, & Opry Mills. Arrington Vineyards, historic downtown Franklin, numerous lakes/marinas, and state parks and hiking trails are barely 20 minutes away.
Easy accessibility! Drive straight to the property and gain access via a unique key code provided only to you. We follow all local and state permit and tax rules. Reservations include applicable taxes, a cleaning fee, any service fees charged by listing agencies, and a Property Damage Protection insurance policy and/or security deposit. This is not a party house and has strict rules on noise. We work hard to make sure our neighbors are not inconvenienced by our guests and require all to adhere to our house rules. We recommend you look for other places if you are in town to party.
We are members of the "Top 3%," a small group of hosts who donate up to 3% "off the top" to local non-profits. In 2017 and 2018, our Shelby House's contributions support military veterans at Operation Stand Down Tennessee. In 2018, we are also supporting the national chapter of GAN (Giant Axonal Neuropathy).
Families with children are welcome. To assist in your packing/travel plans, we have: a pack-n-play, a high chair, step stools, children's books, toys, and games for all ages.
