My very first airbnb experience!!!!
In this 1930’s vintage cottage…. NASHVILLE.
It couldn’t have been at a cuter, more homey place.

After traveling corporately for years and years and staying in hotel after hotel, I AM OVER IT. Through airbnb, you can rent peoples apartments and/or homes in places throughout the entire world and there are some pretty badass places including this MODERN + HIP Rehabbed Townehome in Chicago, this Modern Boulder Cliffhanger in Colorado, and this Parrot House in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

This cute little cottage sits in a neighborhood not far from East Nashville. Close to the highway, it was easy for us to travel throughout various neighborhoods in Nashville and getting downtown only took us about 15 minutes!

Two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a little dining room, and cozy living room with a fireplace – this little cottage only cost us $120/nightly! You can’t find a decent hotel room in Nashville for that price! And let’s face it… there are very few hotels in Nashville that I desire to stay at. ((can you say Marriott and Holiday Inn? BORING.)) Remember the first time I went to Nashville? We stayed in a hostel….

I never met the owner of the place, however he was accommodating and hospitable.  Adorable that he wrote us a welcome message? I think so. He also had an entire resource guide available that listed out local Nashville restaurants, sites, and attractions. I didn’t use the guide at all because I already have about a million places I’d like to visit in Nashville.

I LOVE the vintage garb that decorates this little cottage.

It was nice so to actually have a kitchen for breakfast in the mornings.. I don’t enjoy breakfast at hotels because it’s never as vegan-friendly as I’d like it to be plus the fruit is never local/organic.

Staying at the cottage allowed me to shop the local grocery store for foods I could prep each morning. AND I was able to bring leftovers home from a restaurant one night which is something you just don’t do when you’re staying at a hotel.

In the adorable little dining room, I thoroughly enjoyed my leftover food from
The Wild Cow which consisted of chipotle seitan and buffalo tempeh over a bed of quinoa with beans and kale.

(do you know how excited I was to have that meal twice in a row?!?!?)
((I love LOVE The Wild Cow))

I am forever grateful of Goeffrey (the owner of this cottage) for providing me with a charming home-away-from-home last week. xo
