What guests are saying:

“Emily’s place was great! It was super cute and cozy. Getting to downtown was an easy 5-7 minute drive. In non-COVID times, it looks like it would be hella easy to hop the KAT bus downtown as well. Emily left us with a lot of great recommendations and was quick to respond to any inquiries we had. There was also a lot of outdoor fun nearby that was a quick drive away- I would recommend hiking House Mountain and swimming at Fort Dickerson Quarry. I would highly recommend a stay at Emily’s .”

What guests are saying:

“We stopped at Jonathan and Melody's place on the way from Louisville to Charleston. it was just my husband and I. The location was easy to get to, and right around the area are restaurants and grocery stores. We had our own parking spot, which was covered. We grabbed dinner nearby, and were able to store our leftovers in the fridge. In the morning, they have a Keurig with all supplies for coffee. Bathroom and shower were roomy and great. Sitting area was nice and we were able to spread out.”

What guests are saying:

“Marianna was the best host. We drove through the night from MA to TN. She allowed us to check in early without me even asking (we were super appreciative for that!). The apartment was stylish, clean and cozy. I’ve never stayed in a loft style before, so that was cool! Very close to amenities and only a short walk down the street, to the scenic river walk. Nice spot and I highly recommend. We will keep her in mind should we need to take any more trips to TN....but hopefully God has in His plans, us moving to TN. Thank you Marianna for such a lovely stay and for welcoming us to TN.”
