HISTORIC HOME - VICTORIAN STAGE COACH INN

Nashville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 13-17)

Our home is a pre-civil war era Italianate style Victorian home furnished with many period antiques. Located one hour north of Nashville in the quiet historical town of Russellville, Logan County, KY. Our property is also known as the Wallace-Byrne Home and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was a Stage Coach Inn and Tavern in the early 1800's.

The home is 4600 square feet plus another 500+ square feet of covered porches. It has five (or six) ample bedrooms and beds enough to sleep up to 17 people (all linens included). There are also couches, air mattresses, and sleeping bags. Four bathrooms have all been added over time. The main floor has 10' ceilings with a formal parlor, two dining rooms, and a master bedroom suite. The other bedrooms are located upstairs. The slaves quarters and external kitchen are now replaced with a two car garage.

The kitchen is updated to modern gourmet style with stainless steel appliances including Jennair gas stove (two ovens, 6 burners, plus hotplate), dishwasher, and two refrigerators. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pans, utensils, and imperishable food stock for your use.

The home is within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and seven churches and many other historically significant homes in the Russellville Historic District. Our home historically was on the outside edge of town on what used to be called “High Street” -- which made it quite suitable for being a stagecoach inn and tavern. Now we are in the center of the town on the south edge of the historic district at the foot of the hills.

The builder of the original log house (parlor and dining room with loft above) was William Wallace, possible direct descendant of the William Wallace made famous by Mel Gibson in the movie “Brave Heart”. Wallace was appointed Circuit Court Judge in 1807 with a jurisdiction covered 5 counties and some 160 miles. Wallace was a Jeffersonian in politics and was a presidential elector in the National Electoral College in 1808. One of his more famous young attorney apprentices was Joseph Emory Davis, eldest brother of Jefferson Davis who later was the President of the Southern Confederacy.

A FORMER OWNER OF OUR HOME WAS SHOT BY THE JESSE JAMES GANG - and lived. This was Mr Nimrod Long the banker who was shot in the head during the bank robbery March 20, 1868 - The James gang robbed the Southern Deposit Bank in Russellville, Kentucky for $14,000. Long & wife purchased our house in 1877 leaving it to his eldest son for $1 in 1881.

The Victorian home was originally heated by eight coal fireplaces. You can still see the original coal shoot, including its own little driveway ramp up from the street, at the southwest corner. A young slave was responsible for keeping the coal bins full during winter. You can see the remains of coal throughout the coal cellar located under the Parlor. In the north yard closest to the NE entrance is a Buckeye tree (thought to be over 150 years old). This is the tree made famous by the Ohio State University mascot (but most Ohioans have never seen this kind of tree or its nut). Unfortunately this tree was damaged by a storm in 2010 and only partially stands today. But we still have a bucket of buck-eye nuts. On the north east corner of the property behind the garage by the stone fence is a concrete pad that we understand was approximately where the slave quarters were located. The original kitchen was located about where the garage is today.

Consequently, this is an older home with some updated ammenities. Our neighbors are mostly current or retired educators that love history and are very friendly and helpful. Many neighbors are active in the areas historic societies and civil war groups. If your party is really seeking a condo or set of hotel rooms style outing, please do not contact me about renting our house. This is for people who can enjoy the country and appreciate the differences of an older home.

Free WIFI Access - After long holding out that the modern era has no place in a pre-civil war home, we installed a new N-Router to provide secured internet service throughout the grounds. If you enjoy the historic aumbiance, you can ignore the wifi -- however, if you need access for work or other reasons...it is now available free with your stay. We have also have a wifi enabled DVD/blue ray player and free NetFlix for our guests to enjoy downloadable movies from a large list of options.

We recently added a 'bicycle built for two'. The tandum bike is available for check out from our in town manager.

Upon your arrival, our in-town manager will meet you with the keys, show you the house, answer questions and will try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The whole house will be yours....its like staying in a historic home museum, yet reasonably priced. Feel free to ask the owner for more details and non-profit discounts.

About Tim Reddington

Business Consultant and Property Investor that has learned to love the style of the old mid-South. Our home in Russellville was remodeled into an early Victorian style prior to the civil war. We hope to perhaps retire there someday. 'They don't build them like this anymore.' We trust you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Tim Reddington purchased this house in 2006

Why Tim Reddington chose Nashville

The historic town is so well preserved, people in the area are great, you can literally walk to about everything in town, wake up to church bells, know your neighbors, etc. We really love Russellville and that whole area north of Nashville.

What makes this house unique

This is a one-of-a-kind historic home listed on the National Historic Register. It is like staying in a museum. Truly a unique home stay.

Surrounded by other historic homes and historic spots like Shakertown, Jefferson Davis birthplace, and the bank that Jesse James robbed in unique, We love buying antiques, relaxing at home, reading up on how the home was historically significant during the civil war and other early victorian periods.

In fact, A FORMER OWNER OF OUR HOUSE WAS SHOT BY JESSE JAMES AND LIVED (Nimrod Long was the owner between 1877-1881, then he and his wife gave it to his oldest son for $1 - shot by Jesse James Gang during a robbery of the bank March 20th 1868). You cannot get more unique than this home! Come and explore for yourselves.

Wonderful wedding experience

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Victorian Stage Coach Inn for a weekend to host family from out of town for our small wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Although extreme cold weather the week before our reservation caused some plumbing issues, the owner kept us informed and had everything resolved before check-in.

The house itself is lovely. The many antiques and eclectic objects add charm and interest- all weekend I kept noticing new and interesting things, and our pictures turned out beautifully. The long history of the house and the care the owners take of it is evident throughout, and our family of history buffs enjoyed learning about such an historic property.

And it is a *very* large and comfortable home- we slept 10 people there, and some beds went empty. The kitchen is also a wonderful touch- completely renovated, very modern and convenient, with two refrigerators and an enormous gas range that cooked a wedding dinner for nearly 20. There was plenty of seating and space for people to relax, and room for the kids to play. The large porches and swing were also very nice. The house is also centrally located in the historic district of town, with other beautiful houses and main street shops an easy walk.

We had a wonderful wedding and couldn't have hoped for a more ideal location or a better experience. If you're looking for a large space in which to comfortably relax and visit with family, I would enthusiastically recommend the Victorian Stage Coach Inn.

Really a neat place.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in Russellville. The owners were awesome and really went beyond to make our trip a great one. We played in Nashville most of our trip and the drive back and forth was very easy. We would recommend Roy's Pit BBQ for home style cooking and really cheap. It's not just BBQ. I would also recommend going to Franklin and playing downtown. Plenty of cool shops.

Very unique experience

  • 5 of 5
We had a great family reunion and enjoyed the historic house. Our intent was to to visit Nashville but we found so much to do around Russellville that we spent most of our time in Kentucky. Great place to stay and we did more as a family than any past vacation

Owner's Response: Jerry, We recommend folks go into Music City several time during their stay....but as you say -- there is much to do in our area north of the city. Thanks for your 2 week stay. We are glad you trusted us for your family gathering this year. Take care & we hope to serve you again in the near future. Tim & Diane Reddington

Family friendly gataway

  • 5 of 5
After I explored the house I stood in the newest addition near the rear door looking at the staircase that once was outside the back of the house imagining that I was probably standing where Stagecoaches would have pulled up and unloaded. I loved the history of the home and that is what I am into. If your just looking for a nice place to stay you wouldn't be disappointed. This place had every amenity I could hope for. My friend loved the five headed shower, and I enjoyed cooking in the Kitchen which is organized in a way to allow a single cook the ability to prepare a large meal. My mother in law and wife spent a few hours walking around in Russellville admiring the architechture of this historic town. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to slow down and enjoy the house more, but that is just the way vacations go.

Great place with lots of character and room for the whole family

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here at the house. There was plenty of room for everyone. Tim was fabulous at responding promptly to emails and questions. My family was in the area mainly to visit Nashville and with two younger children sometimes the drive back and forth was a little too long. If we are ever looking for a quiet, country getaway though, we certainly hope to return and are able to relax in this wonderful home.

Guests can borrow our tandem bicycle (built for two) to cruise around town. Go through the historic district to the town square. Most everyone in the area golf's or are active outdoors (2 golf courses in town). Lake Malone is just 20 minutes North with boating, skiing, fishing, and swimming. There are numerous caves in the area - including Mammoth Caves National Park (one hour north-east). Today Russellville is a relatively small and quiet town, but it is relatively close to many area of interest. We are located just 29 miles west of Bowling Green, KY home of Western Kentucky University (WKU) and the GM’s Corvette plant and museum (factory tours most days) among other attractions. 34 miles SW to Clarksville, TN and the large compound making up Fort Campbell. Most of the region is picturesque farmland. About 15 miles east is the westernmost site of a Shaker Colony museum and grounds – established in 1800. Lots of history in area.
