Overview

About the property

If privacy and charm are what you are looking for, the Hobbit House is it! Tucked away on a quiet residential street, it is only a mile from the Grand Ole Opry, Opryland Resort and Convention Center, Opry Mills Mall, movies, restaurants, the General Jackson Showboat rides and fabulous walking/biking trails. Only 10 minutes to downtown and 15 minutes from the airport. Our cozy home has a BREATHTAKING VIEW of the Cumberland River, en-suite bathrooms, 32" flat-screen TV and Wifi/cable. It has beautiful wood paneling throughout the main body of the house and hardwood floors. Suitable for 4 adults and 2 children. We have a well-stocked kitchen and provide nice linens and the essentials such as shampoo and soap. This home is on a street where TV shows are shot to give the impression that the setting is out in the country. This was our home for a number of years and our friends named it the Hobbit House. Circumstances compelled us to move to a larger house just 4 doors away, but we loved this house too much to sell it, and Richard still tends his organic garden here. Come to Nashville and enjoy the attractions, then come home to relax and watch the birds, the wildlife, and the boats go by. As one of our happy guests said, "It's like being in the country and the city at the same time."

Very nice place to stay in a perfect location with peace and serenity in the midst of everything convenient. All the extra amenities are just like home away from home. Nice towels and clean cabin. Richard and Sherry are so nice. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Nashville!

Quiet, Easy and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The Hobbit home is a lovely, quaint home near the Opryland Resort that was a pleasure to come back to after the crowds and noise of downtown Nashville. Every night we relaxed in the living room watching the Cumberland River and making plans for the next day, The home is well stocked with all the necessities, and we especially appreciated the soaps and toiletries the host provided. The home is clean and well cared for, and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. It is a wonderful vacation home.

A rural feel close to all the action!

  • 5 of 5

A spectacular gem! Lovely, quaint and well-appointed cottage in a very quiet, secluded area on the river. Yet we were only a 15 minute walk or a 2 minute drive from the Opry, mall and various restaurants.

The cottage is well-appointed and decorated with casual flair, and we’ve never experienced a rental where the owners provided so many extras. And the beds were COMFY!

We will definitely be back next time we need a Nashville fix!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage with lots of extras. Everything was clean and in great repair. The kitchen is well stocked and we had plenty of towels and wash cloths and access to the washer and dryer. A beautiful view from the den of the Cumberland river. A very comfortable place to stay. It felt like we were out in the country but right in town and convenient to many things.

The Hobbit House is in the area generally referred to as the Opryland area or Music Valley, a popular entertainment hub. It is in a very private setting but at the same time in a convenient location only 10 minutes to downtown and one mile to restaurants, etc. We live just a few doors away and are happy to do whatever we can to accommodate our guests. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
