Don't get away from it all - Our Nashville guest house is near all of what you come to Music City for.
As a unique alternative to a traditional hotel/motel or B & B, Shelby House is your vacation retreat in the heart of the Nashville scene. Located in the Lockeland Springs neighborhood of east Nashville you are just minutes from the Lower Broadway District and Printer's Alley. This is where you will find the Country Music Hall of Fame, honky tonks like Tootsies and Legends, the Hatch Show Print store, Wildhorse Saloon and much more.
Shelby House is furnished and decorated with your comfort in mind. Each of the 3 private bedrooms has a queen sized bed with home-style bed linens. The full sized kitchen is complete with a toaster, microwave, coffeemaker and all of the necessities to eat in, if you prefer. Central air-conditioning, gas fireplace, cable television, wireless Internet and front loading washer and dryer complete the amenity package.
The shiny hardwood floors make it possible for us to allow pets. There is even a doggie door out to the grass in the fenced backyard.
On the flagstone patio is a charcoal grill and in the screened porch is casual dining for 4.
Shelby House is located in the historic district of Lockeland Springs. This is a residential neighborhood. The house immediately to right is a proud Victorian. On the left side, a classic bungalow has been restored to its former glory. Shelby House is a mid-century brick ranch - not quite as historic.
Within walking distance is the Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park. It is one of the true jewels of Metro's Park and Greenway system. This 810 acre park offers 5 miles of paved multi-use trails and another 5 miles of primitive hiking trails. Along the trails, visitors can enjoy boardwalks, scenic overlooks, interpretive stations and seven rustic bridges.

About the owner: Bryan and I have been innkeepers for almost 12 years now. We came by this profession quite by chance as part of a grand New Year’s resolution at the turn of the century. We bought a small motel and vacation cottages in northern California. It was rewarding to take this humble project to its full potential. In 2006 an offer that we couldn’t refuse came along so it was time to reshape our future again. Prior to our midlife crisis Bryan was a civil engineer and I was the mom. As it turns out these are great prerequisites for inn keeping. How and why we picked Nashville as our vacation destination of choice is a long story. Visit Nashville too and maybe you will feel the attraction.
Why the Owner Chose Nashville:
The sign near our house in California reads - “Cromberg, population 140”. Since we live in a sleepy mountain community, vacationing to busy cities seems normal. Family history research might be the first reason we landed in Nashville. Many of our early ancestor’s roots started in Kentucky and Tennessee so we vacationed here. As a practical starting point, Nashville is well centered to explore most of the eastern United States. The rich cultural diversity and true Southern hospitality in Nashville will have you sipping sweet tea and asking “How you’ all doing this evening” in no time. Welcome and enjoy your stay.
All of our vacation homes are truly located in Nashville, just a couple of miles to the Lower Broadway entertainment area. With our easy to use inquiry and secure reservation system - Webervations, you can book on line.
