I rented the cottage while I attended a national nursing conference. I wanted the feel of home with quick access to the conference venue but also the sights and sounds of Nashville. This adorable and cozy cottage fit the bill and more! Next time I visit Nashville, this is my new home away from home! Thanks LuAnn!

Wonderful Experience

October 30, 2012

Our stay at 'The Cottage' was wonderful. It was quiet and peaceful, but close enough to the city to enjoy all the amenities. LuAnn has great knowledge of the area, and the best way to get around to all of the sights. The Cottage was very clean, the bed was comfortable and there was lots of hot water. There is a nice garden area to enjoy and BBQ to use if you so desire. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Nashville.

This was our second time staying here. We love it! Very nicely decorated. Extremely comfortable bed. Easy to get to and good access to anything you would want to do in Nashville or surrounding area. Very nice neighborhood. LuAnne is great to deal with. Our first trip was for our anniversary and she had flowers and a bottle of champagne waiting for us! Made the weekend even more special. Can't wait to go back again!

For the price, this cabin suited us. It was very close to Nashville, and that is why it was ok. Otherwise, it is small and not condusive to hanging out in. The bed was comfortable

Fabulous Find!

My husband and I just spent our anniversary weekend at The Creative Cottage in Nashville, and It was fabulous! The cottage was spotlessly clean, very private, and so comfortable! The thoughtful owner surprised us with flowers, sparkling wine, and a sweet note in honor of our anniversary. The neighborhood is very quiet and so lovely. We highly recommend this cottage and will definitely stay there again! Thanks LuAnn for a wonderful weekend!

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed staying at your Creative Cottage. The cottage was perfect for the two of us and the location to all the sights of Nashville was great. It was nice to come home after a day of fun and have a comfortable and peaceful place to hang out and sleep. The new mattress was very comfortable!! Our week went by so quickly, as all vacations do! 5 stars for the Creative Cottage!

Fabulous Escape

April 27, 2011

My husband and I just got back from our mini vacation to Nashville and our wonderful stay in this lovely guest cottage. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Far surpassed our expectations. LuAnn goes out of her way to make her guests comfortable and provides lots of great information about the area with good places to eat and things to do. FANTASTIC!!!!!

Great for couples- private and quaint

April 19, 2011

When I found this cottage I was a little leary, but after reading the reviews and looking at the pictures, we figured we would give it a try. It was well worth it, as it was quiet, clean, great location to access all entertainment. It was a terrific change to the hotel scene. The cottage was comfortable and had character. Luann is a great hostess and was easy to work with. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to save some money and try something other than the hotel. It was a 10 minute drive to music row and central to many other attractions. I would deifinitely stay here again.

Quaint, Comfortable, Accomodating

November 12, 2010

This little cottage was a wonderful find! We came into Nashville for a concert and wanted to be close to downtown, but didn't want to pay for the high priced hotels in the area. We also wanted to be outdoors and be near some bike trails. LuAnn's cottage fit our needs perfectly. Minutes from downtown and easily accessible from the interstate, this location was a perfect place for us to stay to explore the city. The bike and walking trail at the end of the street was a major bonus for us. The cottage was adorable! Perfect for two people but could comfortably accomodate three. The bed was very comfortable, the linens were stocked along with extra shampoo, conditioner, soap, and anything else you might have forgotten. The kitchen was nice to have and it helped us save some money on food. The wireless internet was a bonus as well as cable tv. The neighborhood seemed very safe, which was a big concern for us since we didn't know what to expect. LuAnn was very sweet to help us find things we wanted to do in the city. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for something a little different than a hotel stay and wants to save a little money. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks LuAnn!

Wonderful Accomodations!

November 5, 2010

The Creative Cottage was the perfect place for our young family to stay on our recent househunting trip. Located on a quiet street in Sylvan Park, we found the location convienient to everything. The cottage was clean, comfy, and quiet-our three were the noisy ones :). We cooked most of our meals in the well stocked mini kitchen and ate them oustide on the brick patio. The fenced in yard allowed our boys to enjoy the beautiful weather instead of being cooped up in a hotel room; I'm not sure LuAnn's flower beds will ever be the same! The walking trails at the end of the street were an added bonus. Our host, LuAnn, graciously offered to help us find a home to rent and then became our realtor when we decided to buy a home. She has a wealth of knowledge about the area and has been such a blessing to our family as we walk through this process. We highly recommend the Creative Cottage-it made an otherwise stressful trip much more comfortable!

The Creative Cottage was perfect for us! We were gone most of the time from early morning to late at night, but it was wonderful to be staying in a quiet place, where we could relax and have our coffee in the morning, and a nice cozy bed to sleep in. The host LuAnn was sweet,wonderful, and gracious. We could not have been any happier! We look forward to returning in 2011!!!

What a treat!

June 26, 2010

It's always a bit scary to jump into a space you're unfamiliar with & that isn't a national chain. Sometimes you wind up with a treat that outdoes anything you expected. The Creative Cottage was just such a place. It was perfect--from host LuAnn's bright and colorful interior to the fabulous fireflies twinkling in the yard (unfortunately, they seem to have disappeared from TX). LuAnn was there whenever we needed her but was never intrusive. It was a completely delightful experience.

With short notice, the Creative Cottage was made available for us. Inexpensive, quiet, and peaceful--it turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. Luann, the host, is thoughtful and interesting. She helped make our Nashville experience productive and enjoyable. We hope to return someday!

Fabulous Hideaway!

May 21, 2010

LuAnn's Creative Cottage was the perfect solution to our lodging needs in Nashville. It was only 5 miles from the Convention Center, an easy commute up Charlotte to downtown. We awoke to the soothing sounds of birds singing and gentle breezes in the trees as opposed to slamming doors and voices in a hotel hallway. The cottage was perfect for two individuals staying the week for a conference. We had our own sleeping spaces and plenty of room to spread out our 'stuff' to work on our laptops - high speed internet was a definite bonus. The mini kitchen was appointed with just about everything we needed to prepare simple meals and LuAnn's outdoor grill was available as well. Next year our conference is in Orlando, but we're planning to make Nashville and the Creative Cottage our 'halfway overnight' stop. I will definately be telling everyone I know about the Creative Cottage for their lodging needs in Nashville. Thank You LuAnn for probably the best experience on the road I have ever had.
