We had a family group of seven who came from all over the country to meet together in Nashville to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We chose The Duck House to be our gathering place. The house itself is wonderfully centrally located, but in a beautiful residential area, and is spacious and comfortable with a lot of character. But the true beauty of The Duck House is Jan, the owner, herself. What originally seemed like it might be a little awkward - the fact that she lives at the house during your stay - turned out to be the best part of a great trip. Jan is an active songwriter who is constantly working with co-writers and putting together music. When she had people coming over to write, she said she would hide back in her bedroom - - but when we asked her if we could eavesdrop they worked in the main living areas. We were treated to the wonderful experience of hearing the music evolve. She has since sent us the demos of the songs they were working on. She also gave us a personal tour of Music Row, great advice on where to go for the songwriters' showcases, and a heads-up on free rehearsals before the CMT Awards shows, etc. She is a fun, warm, and knowledgeable lady, and we highly recommend a stay with her at The Duck House.
