About Diane Sesler

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

Why Diane Sesler chose Nashville

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 .

What makes this townhome unique

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

Peaceful, Friendly, Convenient, the Best

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed an idyllic three week stay. The house is lovely, cheerful, creative, and very well laid out. The location overlooking Shelby Park is beautiful, and I especially enjoyed the balcony. The owners have seen to every detail, with kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room all very well organized.

The location is also very convenient for getting to anywhere you need to drive in and around Nashville. The East Nashville neighborhood is quiet, peaceful, and very friendly. Would love to return!

Well Done!

We stayed at the Artful Lodger on the Park for a reunion of three friends. The location is excellent, right next to a large park and within walking distance of some excellent restaurants, Rumours East being one of our favorites. The house is clean, comfortable, and artfully decorated. The opportunity to buy some local art from the house was a great twist. The owners were efficient and organized. This is definitely one of the best VRBO experiences we have had. We would stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation.

Simply lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Nashville, along with another couple, to visit friends last weekend and we had the GREAT fortune to stay at the Artful Lodger on the Park. I cannot say enough good things about this charming and incredibly peaceful home. I use the word "home" because from the minute we walked through the front door, I felt like I was at home..even better than home. The decor is lovely and very comfortable, the kitchen is very well stocked, the bedrooms are so cozy that I looked forward to going to be bed each night, the bathroom and amenities are beautiful and thoughtful, the lovely basement and gallery (or mediation room) provide ample space for a large group and then there is the park! How amazing to wake up each morning and look out onto Shelby Park! The owners provide numerous guides and suggestions of things to do while in Nashville, and the location itself is very close to the most popular restaurants and bars in the city. I highly recommend Lockeland Table, Cafe Margot and Art and Invention for wonderful art and gifts. The owners are very easy to deal with and answered all questions promptly. I highly recommend the Artful Lodger!

What a gem of a find. Thanks VRBO

Do not hesitate to stay at the Artful Lodger. We stayed here this past weekend for a much needed girls weekend. So much better than staying in a hotel. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen to shampoo to hairdryers to comfortable beds. We loved having all that space- indoors and outdoors. The area is cute and we dined at some local restaurants. Went for a long walk in the park, so beautiful. After fun nights on Broadway, it was nice to be by the quiet park, sleep in, and enjoy the peace. Super easy to call a cab and get downtown in just a few minutes. No need to pay for or worry about parking. Owners super easy to work with and super accomodating. They even left us goo goo samples. So don't even hesitate to stay here!

Adorable, park side, Artful-Lodger

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely East end 3 bedroom home for two weeks as we awaited the birth of our first grandchild. Our Labrador came along and loved the park trails and the dog park just steps from the front door. The location was also close to many wonderful eateries, downtown honky tonks, and even close enough to take in a Titans game! Our inconspicuous hosts, Diane and David, were so kind and thoughtful, providing so many welcoming touches: a new toy for our pooch tucked inside a dog dish, and a blanket for his use. They even provided poop bags! We found fresh picked tomatoes on our stoop, then mums and pumpkins to celebrate the fall. The house had everything one would need, with well stocked bathrooms and kitchen, and two areas for TV watching--as if we had time for that--even a grill in our private garden. We enjoyed the balcony, and the art room, the board games....the list of positives for this cute home is long. It is a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: I don't want to make our other guests jealous ;-) but you are positively one of the nicest people we have had at The Artful Lodger on the Park. You are so thoughtful as well...the artwork you made for us is just nicest gesture ever done for us. We hope you come back and see us.
