Tennessee House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-9)

As you make your way down the long private drive of this rural middle Tennessee farm, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what's awaiting you out behind the barn ... our newly finished GUESTHOUSE is both unique and spacious. You'll be our only guests, so make yourselves right at home. You'll be surrounded by gently rolling pastures complete with horses, a few cows, and even a couple of donkeys ... and lots and lots of peace and quiet.

Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, or coming to Tennessee on business or vacation, we offer an experience you'll long remember. You may want to linger outside awhile to enjoy a sense of peace as you take in the quiet sounds of nature. The stress of the day just slips away...... Inside, a large expanse of windows will also provide your own private view out back. Then at the end of the day, you'll want to draw a luxurious bubble bath in your 2-PERSON JACUZZI. Sweet Southern breezes drift over you through the open windows while you watch the sun set over the hills...and soak till the stars come out. Feels like Paradise.....

...Then sweet dreams.....and if the weather gets dreary, the sound of rain on a tin roof will lull you to sleep...... OR.... you can crank up the music and howl at the moon till the rooster crows. Whatever makes you happy.

Next morning, sleep as late as you need to answer a bell for a communal breakfast with people you don't know. Tasty, fresh foods such as sausage and biscuits, fruit and pastries, and of course coffee and juice have been stocked in your private kitchen just before your arrival ( slight additional charge applies). Or we'll deliver a full country breakfast to you. And bed trays are provided if 'breakfast in bed' suits your fancy.

Rise at your leisure, and enjoy your COFFEE OUTSIDE IN YOUR P.J.'s if you like......the animals don't mind.

OR....YOU MAY CHOOSE THE SMALLER COZY COTTAGE ... Enjoy the peace and quiet of nature as you have morning coffee under the shade tree out back while you watch horses graze, and listen to the birds singing above. Your homey cottage is furnished with a queen bed as well as a sleeper sofa...other amenities include full private bath, eating area with efficiency refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and complementary coffee... TV/DVD/VCR, CD/Stereo AM-FM player. Charming, newly-remodeled with private entrance....perfect for the budget-minded traveler or for a tranquil country getaway.

Both the Guesthouse and the Cottage are private, and offer all the comforts of home. No traffic, no neighbors....just lots of peace and quiet. Leave your worries behind and enjoy a few days in the country ! For more information, and to find area attractions, please click on the link to our B & B website for Tennessee Horse Country.

About Dan & Virginia Parrish

We are a semi-retired couple who love animals and the peace and quite of the country. We're about 7 miles from the nearest town, and a mile off the highway on a little country road....with lots of Mother Nature and no traffic...just the way we like it.

Dan is a Viet Nam vet who loves horses and music (ask him to play spoons for've never heard them like this !) Virginia is the dog and cat lover who enjoys sketching and painting.

Dan & Virginia Parrish purchased this house in 2001

Why Dan & Virginia Parrish chose Tennessee

We bought the house because of the location... Peaceful rolling farmland and pastures, the sounds of Nature....and no traffic. We later added the Guesthouse and Cottage for guests.

What makes this house unique

While we're definitely 'away from it all'.... (from the Guesthouse you won't even see another house), it's a short drive into Shelbyville or Bell Buckle with quaint shops and many good restaurants. We're also just a few minutes from Jack Daniels Distillery, which attracts a quarter million visitors each year. If you stay in the Guesthouse, you can watch the horses graze as you relax in the oversized Jacuzzi surrounded by windows overlooking the pasture. You're welcome to pet the animals,too... they all love the attention.

Unexpected jewel in Tennassee

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this location thought about every detail. This is a very clean, beautifully decorated property. The horses are friendly, and my girls brought apples and carrots to feed them. It was quiet at night with the only 'noise' being the air conditioner... and that really wasn't a bother. We were on our way to Florida and this was found as a halfway point. Dan even pointed us in the direction of a tack shop as we were looking for some new tack. We will strongly consider using this cottage again! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Not your typical bed and breakfast

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute arrangements with the owners, due to a funeral in Shelbyville. We had a nine hour travel and upon arrival, we were very pleased. The pictures do not do it justice. It was very clean, superior bed linens and a fully stocked kitchen to prepare a meal. The owners are more than accommodating. They charge extra to stock the refrigerator with breakfast items and it was worth every penny. They charge a minimal fee for this service for all that you get. This worked great for us. You are close to Shelbyville but no restaurants in the immediate area. We loved the countryside and watching the donkey, cows, horses and Mabel and Chester, the resident rescue dogs. They would come visit our two small dogs every morning, as to say "good morning"! We hope to return for another visit some time later this year for a "happy" occasion! Rent this spot, you WILL NOT be disappointed. Only suggestion we would have is pot holders (we couldn't locate any and had we called I am sure they would have made sure we had some) no big deal. Other suggestion would be a light outside the side entrance door. Perfect place to go in and out but a little dark at night. Neither of these suggestions, would keep us from renting again! Owners were a delight! A lot of value for the price!

Second Stay in Four Months

  • 5 of 5

I was born and raised in the Middle TN but have not lived there in many years. We travel back often to visit with family. When my mother's health declined and we could no longer stay with her we began staying in local hotels in Lewisburg and Fayetteville. This past Dec 2012, I decided to check VRBO to see if by chance there was a vacation rental in the area and it was at that time we discovered the guest cottage. We stayed over the Christmas holidays and again just recently for Easter weekend. This lodging is simply wonderful. My husband and I travel often and have stayed at vacation rentals all over the US and this is one of the most comfortable places we have ever stayed. It's not huge so if you have a large group it might not be the best choice but for a couple, maybe one or two small children, it would be just fine. The property is beautiful and serene. The interior is well maintained. We will be back again!

Just what we needed! Super enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were trying to get away from it all for Spring Break and this was the place for us! The city of Shelbyville has great restaurant and shops. The city square has a good history museums with local artist work displayed. You're also near Murfreesboro, it has fun attractions and restaurant as well. The owners were very friendly and the surrounding were wonderful. I would suggest binoculars for bird watching! The plan is to come back again, you'll want to!

I loved this cottage. I ...

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cottage. I needed to get away for a few days due to a stressful life. I was far away to be alone, yet close enough to my kids should they need me. I only saw the owners once. It was very secluded and quiet. Enjoyed the peace. Rained the entire time I was there but felt safe. Thanks for sharing your piece of peace with us. I will be back.
