Stayed: January 2012
2012 marked the 5th annual WIFE-LIFE AND WORK get-away for myself and a few buddies. We rolled the dice considering we've never stayed in a b&b and holy........did we hit our point!
Reclaimed interiors + historic architecture + amazing decor + versatile property instantly let us know we found something pretty special and the perfect place for any type of get away.
Gourmet breakfast spread that will not disappoint. Think farm table covered with any preference of protein, pancakes, b'fast casserole, coffee, milk, oj etc. Seriously, anything you can imagine which all somehow manages to be just a "detail" by the end of your stay.
Our hosts did not overlook any details and were refreshing people. Personally, I would want to share Thistletop too if it was my home. The house itself and hosts hardly make you want to leave. We stayed with the intention of spending time in Nashville (only 15 min away) but at every turn (or room in the house) there was something unique to offer.
Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation....try this on for size: Hot-tub, downstairs gym, vinyl collection, movie collection, books, reading rooms, exterior wrap-around balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplace, media room, hillside views and wildlife on property. Every bedroom in the house offer tons of privacy and inspiration for anyone seeking comfort and the perfect home.
I still haven't figured out how Fred and Mary Jane make hosting, at this caliber, seem so effortless and easy. And the crazy thing, I have a feeling we barely scratched the surface of what Thistletop and Fred and MJ have to offer. This is a must people....
