In 2010 we lost our home and most of our personal belongings to the devastating Nashville flood. It wasn’t an easy process but there’s a spark of sunshine in every situation. We lived in the backyard of our flooded inhabitable home in a 33’ trailer for over a year. It took that much time for the government to go through with their promises.

Humor, among other qualities, kept us afloat. How can you not find humor with 2 people living in a backyard in a teenie weenie trailer with 1 giant Doberman named Nookie Pookie and a bad tempered cat named Monster.

It was business as usual for my husband David who is a computer programmer. I began a blog called Sardines In The Hood. It kept me sane. One of my stories was published in The Tennessean newspaper and an online magazine Dancing Noodle picked up some of my stories. It was my first time at being professionally paid for writing. I’m a visual artist who likes to work with paper. I have done sculptures and other types of artwork that have been featured in galleries, boutiques and shows.

We both love nature. We are passionate about the environment and animals. Our flooded home overlooked the Cumberland River. We sat on our dock many nights looking at sunsets, observing migrating birds, and other creatures that made us appreciative of what we had in our life.

When we found this home it needed a lot of work. It wasn’t pretty but we had a vision. The government finally bought our flooded property so that we were able to move on and finally live in a home after 1 ½ years. We cleaned, painted, renovated and made this new home joyful. Part of the landscape was designed by people who do foodscaping. All the flowers, bushes, trees have a purpose that feeds the animals as well as humans. We hope this becomes a popular trend with everyone on this earth. We also have started a vegetable garden. We hope to have plenty of vegies to share with our guests.

We are happy.

May this home bring you happiness too.

Diane & David

Diane Sesler purchased this townhome in 2011

Peaceful ...overlooking park but close to many restaurants, galleries, shops, bakeries, pubs, and of course downtown. Our beautiful art gallery/meditation room is loved by everyone. East Nashville is home to many musicians, artists, a fantasic web of eclectic and artistic community .

Certified Wildlife Habitat. We provide a designed landscape which organically feeds both humans and animals. Some plants, trees & bushes were here when we purchased the property. We have tried since then to implement many new indigenous species. A perfect blend with the picturesque park which borders the property. It is the best of both world ...staying in a green property but close to downtown

COMFORTABLE, CONVENIENT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We had three adults and two children. The house was convenient to tourist venues and the house was perfect for kicking back with popcorn and a movie. Very "artful" decor and beautiful park setting. Highly recommend this house!

JULY 4 WEEKEND 2014

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Artful Lodger. The location is near a very large park, is great for walking, running and plus it is very convenient to downtown Nashville. We saw an unbelievable 4th of July fireworks in Nashville. Our dogs also had great time – very pet friendly! We would definitely recommend it and we would rent again if we come back to the area.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay here. You are right - the 4th of July show in Nashville is spectacular. We are rated 2nd best in the nation. We were in Montreal while you were here and their firework display wasn't as impressive as Nashville. Thank you for staying here :-)

DELIGHTFUL STAY AT THE ARTFUL LODGER

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough good things about our stay here. The Artful Lodger was absolutely perfect. From the location to the furnishings to the very comfortable beds. Everything really was just perfect. The owners paid such close attention to details and had beautiful fresh cut flowers throughout the house. They also were thoughtful enough to leave me a birthday card with a personalized note. East Nashville is about as good as it gets and Shelby Park is gorgeous. We rented bikes one day and biked along the Cumberland River in to Shelby Park. I felt 20 years old again! Considering I was celebrating my 40th birthday this was such a blessing! I am so grateful that I found and chose this rental on VRBO and it was one of the best experiences I have had. My friends and I plan on returning to The Artful Lodger every year. We all fell in love with this home and with Nashville! Thank you again to the wonderful owners!

COZY, WELL FURBISHED HOUSE IN UNBEATABLE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about the location of this house. The pictures don't do its position right next to Shelby park justice. The park was so lovely and inviting while we were there in early April, we couldn't help but go for a walk in the park before we set out for the day and relax on the porch overlooking it in the evening. Also, the house is on Shelby Avenue, a main road that goes straight into Nashville -- you couldn't get lost going downtown if you tried -- but at the very end in East Nashville where it is quiet and peaceful. If you're like me and like to do a lot of sightseeing in the day, but go back to a quiet refuge at night, this place is for you.

The house itself is clean, very pleasant, and well furnished, with everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms are attractive and the beds are comfortable, and there are two comfortable sitting areas for relaxing, one in the living room upstairs and in a den downstairs. We were three friends travelling together, so we each had our own bedroom and shared the bath and a half, which worked very well for us. The house is compact, three couples might find the space a little tight.

I thought East Nashville was a great place to stay because you had the option of going to downtown Nashville to eat or eating in some great new restaurants right in the area. We particularly liked Lockeland Table.

Owner's Response: Dear Ellen,
So happy that you enjoyed staying at The Artful Lodger On the Park....We agree with you that our pictures are not as wonderful as they should be...we are trying to figure out how to make it look like it really looks...It's a perfect location as you describe - peaceful and yet close to everything (love Lockeland Table too). Come back and see us - you are lovely guests :-)

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed at this house to celebrate her Bachelorette Party with friends in Nashville. It was a perfect location. Very close to downtown but in a cozy neighborhood! It sits on a gorgeous park and the house is to die for cute! I would love for the owners to come decorate my house! :) There isn't anything bad I could say about it. Wish we could of stayed longer, but we will definitley return.

GREAT STAY IN NASHVILLE

  • 5 of 5
What a great vacation rental in Nashville! The owners have thought of everything to make the stay pleasant from the books/magazines throughout the home to the kitchen fully equipped with anything needed to prepare meals. The location is close to downtown and only cost $8-$9 to take a cab into the city. I highly recommend this rental!
