House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Shelby House, established 2006, makes it East Nashville’s first “VRBO” and Nashville Neighbors grew from there. When we set this house up in May of that year our realtor Maggie questioned the feasibility. “Who would want to come to Nashville and stay in a house in East Nashville?” The Times They Are A-Changin’. We are now Metro permitted as a Short Term Rental property.
Mid-Century Brick Ranch - simple and efficient. What more can I say - I love this house and this location. Each of the three private bedrooms has a queen sized, comfortable, double sheeted bed and room for all your stuff. Everybody shares the bathroom but surprisingly this works better than you would think. Wireless internet will keep you connected, cable TV can keep you informed. Central heat and air will keep you comfortable. Starter supplies like paper towels, soap and TP are also stocked. Other standard amenities include a washer and dryer, full sized kitchen, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. The kitchen table is unique. A local metal artist made the boomerang and it seats 4. Out back there is an enclosed porch, casual dining table for 4, and a charcoal grill on the flagstone patio.
Your furry, 4 legged family members are welcome. We do allow pets with their proper supervision. There is a doggie door in the laundry room that leads out into the fenced yard. It has a big tree with squirrels. Just up the street is the Shelby Dog Park. We do ask that pets be crated when left alone in the home.
About 1.5 miles down the street is the eastern edge of the Cumberland River and the Shelby Avenue pedestrian bridge. Parking here is free and you can walk over the bridge into the Lower Broadway area. Once downtown there are other options for transportation including the free Music City Circuit green bus. This is where you will find the Country Music Hall of Fame, honky tonks like Tootsies and Legends, the Hatch Show Print store, Music City Center, Wildhorse Saloon and much more.
Within walking distance is the Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park. It is one of the true jewels of Metro’s Park and Greenway system. This 810 acre park offers 5 miles of paved multi-use trails and another 5 miles of primitive hiking trails. Along the trails, visitors can enjoy boardwalks, scenic overlooks, interpretive stations and seven rustic bridges. The area is well known as a haven for migrating birds and other wildlife.

About Bryan and Stephanie
Bryan and I have been innkeepers for over 15 years now. We came by this profession quite by chance as part of a grand New Year’s resolution at the turn of the century. We bought a small motel and vacation cottages in northern California. It was rewarding to take this humble project to its full potential. In 2006 an offer that we couldn’t refuse came along so it was time to reshape our future again. Prior to our midlife crisis Bryan was a civil engineer and I was the mom. As it turns out these are great prerequisites for inn keeping. How and why we picked Nashville as our vacation destination of choice is a long story. Visit Nashville too and maybe you will feel the attraction.

Why Bryan and Stephanie chose Shelby Hills
The sign near our house in California reads - “Cromberg, population 140”. Since we live in a sleepy mountain community, vacationing to busy cities seems normal. Family history research might be the first reason we landed in Nashville. Many of our early ancestor’s roots started in Kentucky and Tennessee so we vacationed here. As a practical starting point, Nashville is well centered to explore most of the eastern United States. The rich cultural diversity and true Southern hospitality in Nashville will have you sipping sweet tea and asking “How you’ all doing this evening” in no time. Welcome and enjoy your stay.

All of our vacation homes are truly located in Nashville, just a couple of miles to the Lower Broadway entertainment area. With our easy to use inquiry and secure reservation system - Webervations, you can book on line.

Cozy, quaint, eclectic - perfect place for our stay in Nashville!
We were very happy with our stay at the Shelby House! The house was surprisingly roomy for the six of us and our dogs! We loved the location (close to Broadway, but not too close, perfect!). The dogs loved the big fenced yard and the back porch. Although the house could use some updates, we all actually came to love the quirky quaint eclectic vibe. The beds were SUPER comfy...soft sheets and the BEST pillows I’ve ever experienced away from my home! The towels were super soft too! We would love to stay again at the Shelby House!! Thanks for a perfect Easter vacation!
Cozy and cute! Just right. Excellent location!
Port in the Storm
We arrived at Shelby House after evacuating Florida for Hurricane Irma. It was wonderful! Especially for our 2 fur babies. It's not always easy to find a place that will take you with 2 dogs. The house was the perfect size for us, the yard was perfect for the dogs. Kitchen was completely stocked with utensils, etc for us as we preferred to stay in most of the time. The house is conveniently located to almost anything you need to see in Nashville. When we return to the area, we surely will check to see if Shelby House is available!
MaryAnne, thank you for the nice review. We have always welcomed travelers who "don't' leave home without them". I'm sure it was stressful all around and I'm glad we could do our part. Bryan and Stephanie - Nashville Neighbors
Great Getaway for Fur Babies and Grown Children
Great location close enough to go partying on Broadway or for staying close in the funky East Nashville community. Great back yard for the puppies and family.
The Shelby House was so accommodating and conveniently located to Downtown Nashville. It was only about a 10 minute drive in. The AC worked wonderfully and kept us cool through the warm weather. The rooms were very roomy and the beds were spectacularly comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything you might need to cook a yummy meal. I will definitely book the Shelby House again when I return to Nashville.
Thank you Keisha for staying at Nashville Neighbors Shelby House. Nashville in July can be pretty stifling - the heat and humidity takes some getting used to. We are happy to provide a good value in the East Nashville neighborhood. Hope to have you visit again soon. - Bryan and Stephanie
8 years in a row!
I have traveled to Nashville every year for the past 8, and always try to book one of the great houses from Nashville Neighbors. Shelby House is my favorite due to location, but Riverside, Willow Springs, and Camp Maplewood are all excellent also!
I would highly recommend booking through Bryan and Steph of Nashville Neighbors. Their homes are lovely, comfortable, affordable, and close to all Nashville attractions!
Nissan Stadium (home of the Tennessee Titans), Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, Honky Tonk Row, Ryman Auditorium, Bridgestone Arena, and Shelby Park (biking, walking, bird watching, fishing), Other activities include Live Theater, Golf (at Vinny Links Golf Course), and Boating.
