Experience Nashville In A Casual, Luxurious Home Hosted By A Native Nashvillian
Hip 3 Bd, 2.5ba home 1.1 miles to downtown, the Greenway, I-24/65, & East Nashville’s 5 Points
Whether you’re here to experience Nashville's people and places, commune with nature, network with colleagues, or unwind off the grid, Shelby House is the home for you. Come for graduations, hot chicken, antiques, music festivals, and more!
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.

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).

About Jeff Collins
Jeff is a native Nashvillian and Molly grew up nearby in Arkansas. After a couple of decades of career-related travel, we are fortunate to have resettled here. We love the city, especially East Nashville, and look forward to helping you explore our hometown. As East Nashville residents ourselves, we live close by and are happy to share our experiences about local haunts, happenings, and true faves.
Jeff Collins purchased this House in 2015
Why Jeff Collins chose East End
We've lived in the US and abroad and have traveled a lot. This property has all the qualities we love about get-a-way digs. It’s unique, well-built, and well-appointed. It’s close to everything you’d want to do yet sufficiently away from the crowd that relaxation and rejuvenation are foregone conclusions. It’s close to nature (a nature preserve, a local park, a river, the 14-mile greenway) but within walking distance to urban vibrancy. Vacationers will love the funky elegance while longer-term renters may call it a second home, thanks to touches of home, such as a screen door, backyard flower gardens (seasonal), and photos of giggly family members who remind us of what’s important.
What makes this House unique
We have a lot of information to share! Jeff will help you eat your way through Nashville at new – as well as long-established – restaurants while Molly will send you out and about to burn off the calories while enjoying Nashville's treasures. As much as possible, the home features the work of local artisans, small business owners, and other creative types who call Nashville or TN home. We think Nashville offers something for most travelers, including but not limited to musicians and music lovers, writers, athletes, fashionistas, foodies, hobbyists/crafters, sports fans, conventioneers, families, couples, wine-or-beer enthusiasts, friends, girls' groups, guys' groups, outdoorsy folks, and corporate retreaters. We have access to people with unique talents and expertise, so let us know if we can help customize your trip!

Beautiful Home and Convenient Location
The home is beautiful and very conveniently located. It was a short uber ride from anywhere you want to go. The house is stocked with anything you might need as far a towels, blow dryers, sheets, pillows and blankets. We had a great time and will be back!
We had a wonderful stay for a family getaway for spring break. Close enough to the action for a very quick and easy Uber ride but yet quiet enough to be away if you want to be. Very clean and comfortable with caring owners that will make sure everything meets your expectations.
We loved the updated property and the owner is great! We will definitely recommend it!
We enjoyed hosting Amy and her group. We welcome then back anytime.
Most comfortable beds in vrbo ever!!!!
Prettier than the pictures!
We had a great visit. Home was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Hosts were super accommodating and provided everything, and then some, of what we could possibly need! Although it was not a *short* walk to many places, Uber was super easy and not very expensive!
This home was one of the very best that we have stayed in. Jeff and Molly were so great at check in and showed us exactly where everything was they also put together some recommendations for us since this was our first trip to Nashville. We told them that we were traveling with children and they were nice enough to bring some board games to the house for the kids to play. They truly think of everything to make your stay wonderful. When we return to Nashville this will be the only place that we stay!!
