Elysian shares its 11 acres with Thistletop Inn, Bed and Breakfast, while remaining completely independent and private from the Inn. It was originally planned as a one-bedroom apartment above the eight stall barn for the first owners of Thistletop . The owner's quarters have served as a private retreat during the several phases of renovation the property has experienced, as well as a vacation house.

Completed in the early seventies, prior to the construction of Thistletop, Elysian sits between pastures and the old riding ring. Bordered by 40 acres of woods and pasture, this home offers the peace and tranquility that makes staying here unforgettable.

Elysian is equipped with everything you need. The living area has a comfortable sofa with chairs, flat screen TV with DVD Player and dining area. The kitchen has a stovetop, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, and all of the cooking utensils and dishes to go with it. The bathroom has a walk-in shower with soft towels and soaps. The large bedroom is supplied with the best of linens and comforter, along with a great reading area with easy chairs and a writer's desk, and flat screen TV with DVD Player. During the day, light floods in through the curtains from both decks and the windows that feed Elysian with sunlight.

Enjoy your coffee in the morning on the front porch. WiFi is supplied for you laptop users.The yard is equipped with a porch swing, table and chairs, and a grill.

Feel like experiencing some great restaurants, a museum, or some live music? Downtown Nashville is only 15 minutes away!! Thats's the beauty of it all.

Elysian is truly a relaxing haven from the commonplace and Oh So Peaceful. We hope you'll come stay.

About Mary Jane and Fred Peace

Fred and Mary Jane Peace would like to welcome you to Elysian Carriage House. With years of traveling experience, we understand how important it is to feel comfortable while you're away from home. We know that Elysian can create that feeling for you as a view of the fields always do. We want you to relax, enjoy, have fun, and eat well. There is a great energy and we know you'll feel it too. You will always want to come back.

Mary Jane and Fred Peace purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Mary Jane and Fred Peace chose Nashville

We bought Thistletop in 2005 as our home. Because of the size of the property and the square footage of all of the buildings, we felt that it was the perfect solution to turn it into a bed and breakfast and a vacation rental. We love meeting people and making them happy. It truly gives a pleasure and we feel that each time we have someone here, we've made friends for life. They always leave happy and want to come back. We hope they do.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Here at Elysian you have the best of both worlds; you have the serenity, and peace and quiet of the country side, yet you are only minutes from the city and everything it has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fred and Mary Jane

Thank you so much for sharing a little piece of your home with us.The Elysian was comfy, inviting and peaceful. We really enjoyed it. The Derby was great, and Nashville was fun. If you are ever in Texas, give us a shout.

The best carriage house in TN

  • 5 of 5
Our hostess was warm, personable and very accommodating. I have stayed in many places around the country and the Elysian Carriage House is one that is a must to go back to! It was charming, decorated beautifully and in a word, perfect! The place screams Welcome and Warmth. I have a mind to redecorate my whole house after staying there! My fiance and I will definitely be staying there again in the future. For whoever reads this, you have got to make this your destination!

Our First Trip to Nashville

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled to Nashville and stayed at the Elaysian Carriage House. It was a perfect location as it was close to all of the attractions we visited yet in the peaceful countryside. We found the carriage house to be beautifully decorated, relaxing, and exactly what we needed. We appreciated Fred and Mary Jane's hopitality and we hope we can return for a visit again

Our Recent Elysian Apartment Stay........

  • 5 of 5
Recently we were fortunate enough to stay at the Elysian Apartment. The apartment lacked nothing and the owners (Fred and Mary Jane Peace - how appropriate is this last name for this spot!) were equally as pleasant and enjoyable. The apartment lacked nothing and we would definitely come back. The fact that it was close to highway #65 South/North was also great, plus only 15 or so miles from Nashville made travelling anywhere totally easy. If you ever thought you'd like to get away from it all, this property is for you. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend on the property taking in walks, relaxing more, sipping on wine. Overall, we'd rate this spot as "excellent". Thanks for everything Fred and Mary Jane!

Wonderful stay at Elysian Carriage House

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (2 daughters - 14 & 12) plus Ozzie our min. schnauzer stayed at the Elysian Carriage House for 5 nights. We came to spend time with parents who recently moved to the area, and to explore Nashville. The property is very peaceful and the grounds are beautiful. It is in a perfect location just 15 mins. from Nashville. The carriage house had everything we needed for our stay, and was very clean and beautifully decorated. The towels and sheets were so soft - had to mention that! There was plenty of room for the 4 of us - the pictures don't do it justice. Mary Jane and Fred are very gracious hosts, and were very helpful before and after our arrival, recommending restaurants and activities. They are such genuine nice people. They also have a beautiful bed and breakfast on the property. We look forward to another stay in the near future.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Do come back and see us. With your Dad here, hopefully it will be quite often. You guys were so great in the unbearable heat of the summer. Keep in mind that fall is really beautiful here, and much cooler! Say hi to the girls and Ozzie!
See you next time and thanks for staying with us!

Navarre Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I don’t think our vacation to Nashville would have been quite the same had we stayed anywhere else. Navarre is the perfect place for peaceful relaxation. Knowing we would have our comfy cozy carriage house to return to allowed us to enjoy the Nashville music scene with vigor and put many countryside touring miles on the motorcycle. Even though we packed in a lot of activity on our vacation, we couldn’t help but feel relaxed at the end of it all thanks to the beautifully peaceful setting of Navarre. Fred and Mary Jane were the perfect hosts and were so warm and welcoming – we felt like family from the minute we arrived. They provided a wealth of information and helpful hints to guide us on our outings and were always there when we needed anything – including a very yummy breakfast. They have found the perfect balance of a rustic country setting and high-quality amenities that will keep us coming back for years.
