All weekends have been filled since we started, so we recommend booking as far in advance as possible. All taxes are included, so there's no need for cash payments.
You have total access to a private one-bedroom/living-room with pull-out sofa/kitchenette suite with private entrance. The entire upstairs space is yours.
We would love to meet you and chat, but we’re flexible and want you to enjoy your experience, your way. We are a text or phone call away if you need anything or have questions.
We welcome everyone equally. Check-in time is 3pm; check-out time is 11am. The suite is up an external stairway and is not wheelchair accessible. We have cats in the downstairs of our house, but they never have access to the upstairs suite. The bathroom is stocked with soap, shampoo and other toiletries. There is a Keurig coffee maker with complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate. There is street parking directly in front of the house. We comply with all local laws and regulations, including adherence to fire safety guidelines. We have a permit and pay all appropriate taxes and fees. There are public tennis courts one block away and we have rackets/balls for you to use.
We love our home and are pleased to share it with respectful guests. Since we live downstairs, please observe quiet time between 11pm and 7am. No pets. Please no smoking anywhere on the property. MOST IMPORTANTLY, please respect our neighbors and avoid making noise outside, especially on the exterior stairs leading up to the suite, to avoid disturbing our next door neighbor. We do not prohibit visitors; however, we don't allow visitors beyond the number from the original booking to stay over night without prior approval and payment of the $15 per night, per guest fee.
Long-term reservations may require guests to sign a lease agreement depending on the length of stay.
Mitch and Donna are world-versed native Southerners. We met and married in Washington, DC, then moved to New York City so Donna could attend graduate school at NYU to earn her Master Degree in Social Work. In the meantime, Mitch earned his MFA in creative writing (poetry) from Vermont College. After 11 years in NYC, we moved to Nashville to be closer to family, so Donna could have a garden and so Mitch could have a woodworking shop. Donna went to Oberlin College for undergrad and Mitch went to the University of Tennessee. We have witnessed the resurgence of East Nashville first hand and are eager to share our love for the community and all the great people and activities it offers!
