Shelby House, established 2006, makes it East Nashville’s first “VRBO” - Vacation Rental by Owner. 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 as seen on abc’s “Nashville”. 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.
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.
Bryan and Stephanie purchased this house in 2006
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.
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!
Hello, we were 3 couples that came to Nashville to see The Timejumpers and friends, at the Ryman Auditorium, for a benefit concert . This was our second stay at Shelby house. It was great, just like last time. The house is very well maintained and clean. The house is a short Uber ride from downtown, very convenient. There's even a Kroger(grocery) close by. We all found our beds to be very comfortable, nicely decorated bedrooms. The power strips in each bedroom were a real help, it allowed us to be able to charge all our phones ,laptops, etc. There's a nice big tv in the living room. The only issue we had was the oven didn't work, no matter what we couldn't get it to come on. We really enjoy sitting out back in the yard, the back yard is so nice and big, there's a small patio, it would be nice if there was outdoor seating and maybe a firepit. There is a table and 4 chairs on the enclosed porch out back. Bryan and Stephanie are the nicest hosts ever. We actually got to meet them last time we stayed there, we all had tickets to see The Timejumpers at 3rd and Lindsley. Very helpful, answered e-mails right away. We will definately stay here the next time we come to Nashville.
I only gave it 4 stars because of the issues with the oven, we like to cook and eat in, and it was disappointing to not have an oven.
We found house to be adequate for our stay. I saw a review from 2013 stating bathroom was in need of a serious update. Owner stated they were going to work on it real soon. It's 2 years later and apparently 2 years is not soon. That said, the location is very good 20 minutes or less to downtown and 20 minutes to Opryland. I would stay there again.
Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but close enough that an you can jump in your car and be there in 10 minutes, Shelby House is the perfect location for a Nashville vacation. We used Uber a lot and did not pay more than $6 or $7 a ride. East Nashville is a funky and fun area and we found some great bars and restaurants in Five Points, which is just a 15 minute walk away. There is a great coffee house just a five minute walk from the house, and we loved Shelby Park and its dog park. The house itself has many plusses: extremely comfortable beds, fenced in back yard for the dog, off-street parking, and a full kitchen. As one reviewer said, there are some inexpensive improvements that could be made for short money. The shower is in desperate need of a new shower head and the tub fixtures are broken, making it hard to turn the cold water off. The screen on the back porch is torn terribly and the kitchen was short on some essential supplies. Overall, Shelby House was a comfortable home to stay in and the location can not be beat.
This home was perfect for myself and 2 girlfriends to spend a long weekend in Nashville. We each had our own private bedroom that was comfortably furnished with an adorable themen in each. The home was super clean and ready for the guests needs, for example each room had a surge strip for all the electronics that we all "have to have" and the bathroom has a huge mirror in it so more than one of us could prep at a time. The kitchen was well equipped with anything you may need. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the enclosed porch in the back of the home. While we were in Nashville we took advantage of the Uber service to get back and forth to the main events, even though it was only a 2 mile walk to the Ryman and other attractions. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone and will probably be using it again. Nice place! We loved it!
The Shelby House provided perfect accommodations for our stay in Nashville! My friend and I visited Nashville with our five-year-old son and daughter and the warmth and comfort of the home was exactly what we needed after our days of adventure.
The location is trendy and super convenient to get around. I found it very safe and quiet but my perspective is from living in a city of the same size. The kids enjoyed the back yard while we prepared breakfast and some dinners in the fully functional kitchen. The decor is very nice, the beds are comfortable, and there were plenty of towels. The keyless entry provided one less thing to have to keep track of.
This is not just a place to stay - it is a home that makes you feel comfortable the minute you enter. The neighbors were friendly - especially the friendly cat that came to play with the kids every morning.
Thanks for the hospitality!
