Welcome Letter from the Proprietor

My friend, you have just stumbled across the greatest little gem of a special occasion Nashville, TN Bed & Breakfast property that you will find in Nashville!  The "Caroline House Nashville" established 1921, is a charming, fully-restored Luxury historic bungalow, located in the hottest area in Nashville--12South!  We specialize in hosting your special occasions and offer exclusive-use 'Run-of-the-House' Bookings for those seeking a property that offers a block of the entire house, accommodating up to 12 people. Our Inn is ideal for celebrating birthdays, family gatherings, reunion weekends, and other special occasions.

Our Historic property was introduced to the public Spring 2015 by local media including the Tennessean and CBS News Channel 5.  Additionally, in April 2017 the city of Nashville deemed the property as a Historic Bed & Breakfast based on the Nashville legacy connected to the history of the home.  The Waldkirch Family not only built the Caroline House Nashville but were one of the founding families who developed what is now knows as the Waverly Place Historic District, registered on the National Registry of Historic Places.  Today the historic neighborhood is known as a part of "12South".  

If you are looking for centrally located Nashville, TN Bed & Breakfast accommodations for your group in the heart of Music City, we are the property for you!  We are two miles from Vanderbilt as well as downtown Nashville.  Luxury Suites all feature private baths, spa-quality robes, big fluffy towels, 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets, and the same "Heavenly Bed" mattress you find in Westin hotels. Be prepared to enjoy the amenities on par with five-star accommodations, but not at the five-star price!  In the morning you will enjoy coffee from locally-roasted coffee beans from Eighth & Roast.

Guests will have access to all the main living areas of the property including the gathering room, kitchen, comfy front porch and back covered patio with cushy outdoor furniture and a wood-burning fireplace. We provide a personal combo code for use in accessing the property so you can come and go as you like! If arriving home late at night after some classic Nashville fun, the home is well lit with lighting all around the property so that you feel safe upon arrival.

There is plenty of street parking directly in front of the property, as well as on our private drive. We prefer to greet you upon your arrival to help you get settled and will assist you with dinner reservations or other plans to help ensure you enjoy your stay!

Note that we are an urban neighborhood which is smack in the heart of the city! From the Caroline House Nashville, within our neighborhood you can walk to a plethora of restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues, and boutique shopping as well as conveniences such as a Walgreens drug store, a liquor store, and more. We can't wait to share our neighborhood with you!

Since we are in the center of the city, transportation is a breeze! If you plan to stay within the city, we recommend you do not rent or use a car during your stay!  There is a bus system that picks up 2 blocks away, or a $6-$10 Uber or Lyft ride will get you about anywhere in the downtown and midtown Nashville area. There are restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks to up to a 1/2 a mile walk. 1/2 a mile away there are also bicycles available to ride around the city and check in at any other sister bike station in the city. Many love to pick up a bike in our neighborhood, 12South, and ride the bikes into downtown 1.5-2 miles away.

Thank you for your interest in the Caroline House Nashville!  We can't wait to meet you and show you some amazing Nashville-style Southern Hospitality!  In the meantime, please let me know what I can do to assist you with planning your special occasion, group adventure, or corporate retreat in Nashville!
