Ruth and I spent 4 great nights at the Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn this last weekend. Several months ago I booked this gem as part of our get-away-and-see-the-eclipse extended weekend. It was the best choice I could have made! Nestled in a quite neighborhood just a few minutes south of downtown Nashville, the Caroline is a very special place, with a great front porch, back porch, beautiful kitchen and living room, and our room, the Rose Master Suite, was superb. Of course, this house would not be a home without the very special proprietors Ashley and Michael. They made our stay very special and gave us great pointers to spots in and around Nashville. Desti, their well mannered Golden Lab, is icing on the cake! We cannot recommend the Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn more highly!
This was our first B&B experience so we were a little nervous about the experience. The Caroline House was everything we read and more! Ashley and Michael were perfect hosts and let us interact at our pace. You can tell that they are very proud of their "neck of the woods" and their information was spot on! We stayed in the Coal Room which was more like a small apartment minus a kitchen. The space was absent of that closed in, cold feeling that comes with a hotel room but instead it was warm and inviting. There are two queen beds to choose from. If you like a more firm sleep, pick the bed closest to the bathroom. We opted the second night for the bed on the far West wall which was softer and we slept like babies. The common area is well equipped. The kitchen was stocked with a variety of drinks (wine, liquor, soda, mixers and a coffee maker) as well as a few snacks. We sat at the large dining table one evening and enjoyed a beverage and a relaxing game of cards. One of my favorite spots was the swing in the back yard! We enjoyed all of the breakfast locations but especially loved the coffee at 8th Street and the food at the Frothy Monkey. We never left 12 South for dinner. Everything we ate during our stay there was delicious, We will definitely return to the Caroline House when in the Nashville area.
This place was great! Michael and Ashlie were fantastic hosts and willingly shared their knowledge of the local cuisine and night life. If there's a sports fan in the group, they will definitely enjoy the coal room as the collection of history in there is impressive. The location was a mere 5 minutes drive from downtown, and the Lyft service was extremely fast and friendly. My favorite piece was the outdoor spaces, either the large front porch or either sitting area in the back. Very inviting and definitely worth the stop. My wife on the other hand sung praises to the amount "girly" details around every corner. From the plush bathrobes, down sheets, make-up removal towels all the way to the blow dryer tucked away. You know what they say fellas, a happy wife is a happy life. The one downfall was not having breakfast onsite, but they do provide breakfast at several local establishments
The Caroline House was exquisite. Every detail was considered and my friends and I had a wonderful time. Ashly and Michael made us all feel like one of the family. Next time I go to Nashville, I will definitely stay here.
This was our second visit to The Caroline House, but it won't be our last. We have stayed all over the city in the past, but now that we've found The Caroline House, it's the only place we want to stay. Ashley and Michael are perfect hosts, friendly and inviting. The rooms are clean, beds are great. There's plenty of covered outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Don't hesitate to stay here.
What a wonderful time at the Caroline House. Michael and Ashley were exceptional hosts. They made us feel like family. We will certainly look to stay here next time we are in town.
For true Country Charm, this is the place to stay. Our inn keeper was full of wonderful and entertaining stories. She had great suggestions for off the beaten path places to visit. We will not hesitate to visit again in the future.
For our first visit to Nashville, Caroline House was absolutely perfect for our two families! This historic inn is not only beautifully decorated (Ashley has amazing taste!), but what also attracted us was it was outside of (and close to) downtown, situated in a residential area and in walking distance to local restaurants and shops. Hosts Ashley and Michael were absolutely great! They take great pride in providing a special experience for their guests, and were always available and happy to offer tips to make our stay memorable. A couple of great tips (and there were many!) were dinner at Skull's Rainbow Room and to take the guided tour of the Ryman before we went to the show there. Seeing the Ryman backstage and seeing all the history made the show even more enjoyable! Each morning we enjoyed freshly made coffee at the Inn, then ventured out for our short walk to one of the local restaurants for our breakfast. We LOVED this as it was wonderful to see a totally different side of Nashville and enjoy the neighborhood gems nearby. We stayed in the Rose Master Suite which we loved! Comfy bed, furnished with beautifully locally-crafted furniture, spectacular ceiling fan, Egyptian robes and towels, a huge tiled shower, and all the amenities you need. Wine and beer were available to us - and we enjoyed just relaxing or planning our day in the lovely living room. A perfect place whether you're planning a romantic getaway or have multiple families or family members. We really felt like it was our place the whole time (4 nights). We'll definitely be back to Caroline House next time we're in Nashville. Thank you Ashley and Michael!
We loved our stay with Terri and Tabitha. The night we arrived was my birthday as well as Tabitha's and she waited on us to arrive to share her birthday cake with me. We showed up as strangers and left as family. They were very helpful and gave us in site on places to see. The food was excellent and everything was very clean and comfortable. We will be back.

Caroline House is the perfect spot to stay in Nashville. Walking distance to shops and restaurants on 12th Street. We took host Ashleys advice and used Lyft the entire time, much less expensive than renting a car (not to mention gas and parking fees) and didn't have to hassle trying to find our location and parking spots. The Inn is decorated in current furniture (think Pottery Barn) while keeping the integrity of the historical house. I could move right in. Hosts Ashley and Michael couldn't be nicer and very knowledgeable of local hotspots, restaurants, and tips of when and where to go. The added touches of local coffee house gift cards made for a special welcome gift. The open door policy of the kitchen and refrigerator was very comfortable and felt like home. 5 Stars all the way (note, their is no onsite dining as in a restaurant, but as stated above the open door policy, clean kitchen and place to eat what we brought back , fresh coffee in the morning and stocked beverage fridge was great) - we can't wait to go back!
My family rented the Caroline House for a family reunion as a “run of the house.” The 12 South location is great and it’s walkable to coffee shops if you want breakfast out. It’s also easy to access different areas of Nashville as well. The house has a wonderful front porch for relaxing on a hot summer day. There’s also a covered outdoor seating area in the backyard. The 1920’s house is beautifully furnished and very cozy. The beds are comfortable, towels are thick, and bathrooms stocked with essentials like shampoo, conditioner, and soap. It’s a great place to catch up with friends and family! Ashley and Michael are wonderful hosts and we look forward to staying there again!
We had four great nights at the Caroline House. We found Ashley and Michael to be very accommodating hosts. The house was convenient to every place we went in Nashville. The breakfasts were delicious and unique. They were provided by local restaurants so you got a taste of local flavor.
We had a great time at the Caroline House! We stayed for July 4th weekend and it was a blast. Ashley Rose, the owner, gave us so many good tips on where to go, where to eat and where to be. She was very personable and texted us everything thing we needed. The Carolina House itself is located in a great neighborhood. Lots of great old craftsmen style homes and the 12 South Area is a 5 minute walk away. We actually walked there two nights and had a great time at several places but our favorite local restaurant was Josephine's! I'd highly recommend Carolina House. Our room upstairs was great. Breakfast was awesome! We look at the menu the day before and select whatever we wanted it was fantastic! The front porch is great for coffee and the backyard is great with a fireplace and the room to play with Desty the golden retriever mascot!
The Caroline House is a great place to stay while visiting Nashville. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Everything provided to us was first class. The beds are comfortable, there are white noise machines throughout that provide for a very quiet stay. The breakfast that was made for us was excellent. Ashley is also so willing to help with any suggestions we needed on restaurants, transportation, places to visit, etc. I felt right at home during my stay. I will definitely be back! Thanks Ashley & Michael for everything.
We loved the Caroline house for our anniversary stay in Nashville. We often stay in bed and breakfasts and my husband and I feel that this has been one of the best! Ashley and Michael were the most gracious hosts and completely knowledgeable and accommodating in every way. The house is impeccable in design, beauty, and accommodations. The neighborhood is safe and close to lots of restaurants, coffee shops and stores!
We were delighted with our experience at the Caroline House! Greeted with southern hospitality in a beautifully renovated home, slept like babies in uber comfy beds and white noise machines, enjoyed a delicious breakfast everyday and had easy access to downtown. We'll return every time we take a trip to Nashville!
Ashley and Michael of the Caroline House run a perfect B&B. Perfectly located in an historic part of town with great restaurants in and local bus routes in easy walking distance. Highly recommended and a definite "do-over".
Proprietor Ashley Rose attends to all the details that make a lovely and enjoyable experience. Located in a quiet tree-lined historic district just minutes from the city, the Caroline House is walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. We highly recommend.
This was an amazing house and location to stay in Nashville. The host and hostess were very kind and gracious with their home. We enjoyed every minute and will definitely stay at Caroline House again.
Wonderful stay at Caroline House, Ashley & Michael are very welcoming, friendly & knowledgeable hosts, alongside their super-friendly dog Dusty. My girlfriend & I wanted for nothing whilst we were there and spent a couple of very relaxing and enjoyable days in Nashville, which were definitely enhanced by our stay at Caroline House. Located in an excellent neighbourhood within easy reach of Downtown or The Gulch, I would highly recommend Caroline House to anyone wanting to stay in the Nashville area.
Lovely home, warm welcome, delicious breakfast and great location! We enjoyed our weekend stay at the Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn while visiting our son at Vanderbilt. Helpful dining suggestions and interesting Nashville history, comfortable at home feeling!
This is cozy, comfortable and down right charming Bed & Breakfast in the Nashville 12 South district. You will be within walking distance of great restaurants and a short Uber to all the Nashville entertainment options. Ashley is a wonderful host who made us feel welcome and made sure we had our choice of places to go and things to see. We will definitely be back on our next trip.
We loved our stay at Caroline House. Beautiful home, comfy beds and linens. Loved sitting on the huge front porch and comfy back patio. Delicious breakfast including homemade cinnamon rolls. Woke up to the smell of them baking in the oven. Great location-- easy walk to restaurants, shops. We walked to the bike rental and had an easy ride downtown to the historical Ryman auditorium. Ashley was ready to toast me with a glass of champagne because it was my birthday.
Great new B&B. Close to the city if you want to go downtown, yet quite enough to not notice you are in the city. Food was outstanding. Inn keeper very organized and efficient from booking to menu selection.
We just had a long weekend in Nashville and loved staying at Caroline House B&B! Ashley, Michael and their dog Desty were sweet and friendly. Ashley's knowledge of fun outings in Nashville gave us many options. The B&B is a couple of blocks to a local business area with shops & restaurants and just a short Lyft ride to downtown. We would absolutely stay there again!
