About Maggie Edwards

We have established a rental home similar to our own style of living.

Being in the Nashville Real Estate business inspired us to share a piece of where we call home. Charlie's passion of renovating homes and Lori's passion of decorating and entertaining have finally collided. We enjoy quiet evenings on our porch, entertaining guests, large family gatherings, spending time with our grandson- Oakley and beach vacations. Lori was born and raised right here in Donelson and hopes that you will see the charm that this town has to offer.

We have raised 4 children who have played a role in the making of our "Home Sweet Donelson."

Our daughter Maggie will be managing the rentals and acting as your host during your stay. Along with her husband, Maggie enjoys boating, taking her dog to the park, craft beer, and trying every new restaurant that hits the Nashville food scene. She has a wealth of information for those needing Nashville guidance.

We are committed to providing southern hospitality and that extra touch that makes your stay special. Please let us know what brings you to Nashville so that we can prepare those special touches to make your stay far above the rest!

Why Maggie Edwards chose Donelson Hills

Donelson is where we call home. Named after one of the original founders of Nashville, Donelson is only 5 miles east of downtown Nashville. Our goal is to provide the comfort and amenities that we look for when traveling. "Home Sweet Donelson" is strategically located 5 minutes from the Airport and the Opryland area. When this home came available to purchase and renovate, we jumped at the chance. We are thrilled with the finished product and excited to share with our welcome guests. The unbeatable location of this home, walk ability of this precious neighborhood, condition and amenities will make your Nashville stay unforgettable.

Really beautiful home, great location

This home was beautiful and well managed. The stocked coffee was a plus! The location is ideal with a quick commute to the Grand Ole Opry or downtown area. Really nice quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again.

Everything it promised and more

  • 5 of 5

The Donelson certainly met our expectations (and more) for our recent stay in Nashville. It had a very cozy feel and was spotlessly clean. We appreciated the quiet neighbourhood and the comfy beds after an afternoon and evening of activity. We would definitely choose to stay here again when visiting Nashville and would recommend it to friends.

Wonderful time and great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We came to Nashville for the Ravens - Titans game with another couple. It was cheaper to rent a house than two hotels rooms. We found the best spot and place. This home was a easy 6 miles from downtown. The house was beautiful and in a really nice neighborhood. Maggie was great to work with. The only problem that we had was that we had to leave.
