Find our Secret Garden Guesthouse nestled in the heart of old East Nashville. This two-floor, private space is the perfect hideaway in the center of historic Lockeland Springs, just steps from Five Points and its restaurants, bars, shops and charm.

The space

Our newly-built, two-floor guesthouse is tucked away in the garden behind our 1920s craftsman home. When you walk in you're greeted by sitting area, breakfast table (where you could also work) and full kitchenette with mini fridge, range, oven, microwave, toaster and French Press coffee maker. The sectional couch in the sitting area converts into a queen-size bed. The two large windows (with privacy curtains) let in tons of morning light. Upstairs is a queen bed with a full-tiled shower with great water pressure, and a closet for hanging clothes. Two skylights let in beautiful natural light in the late-morning and afternoon. The patio area off the guesthouse at the back of the yard is yours to enjoy as well. We don't have a TV, but you won't need it. Our cozy guesthouse is a great spot to relax and regroup without that distraction. Plus, there's so much to do in Nashville! If you bring a laptop or tablet with you, and you do feel like you need something to wind down to, we have great WiFi so you can always stream something.

Guest access

Accessible from the alley with, lighted, private parking space. Enter through our 8' privacy fence and find your secret garden hideaway.

DIRECTIONS IF YOU ARE DRIVING
To access the guesthouse, navigate to our main house, 1512 Holly St., then head up to 16th street and make a right. Make a right down the alley and we're the fifth house on the right. The house is slate gray/blue with a gray roof and white trim. There's a parking pad out back; you can park there. Enter in through the back gate (there's a metal turquoise flower on it), follow the path, and enter in the first door you encounter (the second is our private garage).

IF YOU ARE TAKING UBER/LYFT
First, both are easily accessible from the Nashville airport. Navigate to 1512 Holly St. in East Nashville. You're welcome to head to the Guesthouse through our yard so you don't have to go through the alley. When you're facing the house, the gate to the backyard is on the left. Head back there and enter in the first door you encounter (the second is our private garage).

Interaction with guests

We live in the main house on the property so are often around. We enjoy getting to know our guests, but we'll respect your privacy until you suggest otherwise. Feel free to ask us for suggestions on places to check out.

Other things to note

We have chickens! The coop is off the garage-side of the yard and houses our lil' ladies. They are very cute creatures - feel free to watch our ladies but leave them and their eggs in our coop, please.

Annakate's home was the perfect place for my sister and I to spend a nice weekend in Nashville! Annakate was super flexible and accommodating with our check in and check out time, which was very! sweet! Would definitely recommend for any travelers looking for a places little removed from downtown but close enough to take a quick l anywhere you might want to go.

Great little guest house. Furnishings look new, very clean, quiet neighborhood with easy access. Quite a few restaurants and shops within walking distance, while getting to the rest of Nashville was easy by car. Also noticed a public bus stop nearby, although we didn't have an occasion to use it. Very good communication with the owners, absolutely no regrets in choosing this place. Very pleased, would gladly stay here again.

Our stay was perfect. Annakate was extremely easy to communicate with before the arrival, check-in was a breeze, accommodations were clean and all of the toiletries were great! We were able to easily walk to several restaurants and bars nearby. Annakate provided many printed recommendations. The place is in a residential area which made it the perfect spot to take a breather from all of the excitement in the downtown area.

Located in a beautiful neighborhood in East Nashville, this garden guesthouse will immediately feel like home. Walking distance to some great restaurants, coffee shops, and nightlife, a car isn't a necessity if you just Uber to anywhere downtown. If you're a runner, Shelby Park is nearby; some of those hills were killer, but the scenic route was great! Thanks for the hospitality, Annakate!

My wife and I just returned from our anniversary trip to Nashville. If you are looking at other places to stay, forget it. This is THE place to be, a very hip and upcoming neighborhood with so many great restaurants and bars, you will not have enough time to explore them all. Annakates space is even better in person. This space is well put together, everything about it is great. Walking into the kitchenette, the carpeted stairs leading to this amazing open concept bedroom. The natural light from the skylights (which may be an issue if you are a night owl). We preferred Lyft while we were in town (5$ to Broadway) we used them approximately 10 times. Stay here, if the space is available you will not regret it.

I once booked a one-way ticket to Bogota. I'll always be a traveler at heart. Every step of the journey is the journey.
