I agree with Jessica L: this may be the best BnB we've stayed: The beauty of the architecture, materials and details and the warmth of the hosts are both excessively impressive. About 15 min from town center, and in a residential area, so go for the peace and respite. We feel lucky to have the experience and will definitely return.

Wanted to visit Nashville for our anniversary, but didn't want to be in town. This beautiful B&B was just perfect! Fred and Mary Jane were awesome hosts and we enjoyed their company. They helped us with recommendations and shared a glass of wine when we arrived. The Taos room was beautifully decorated and the bed was quite comfortable. Fifteen minutes... More

You'll love this place as it's inn keepers are the nicest most wonderful people to chat with. The place is so inspiring for anyone who's an artist or writer. But normal people will love it too as there is greenery everywhere and you can just walk around relax. The details are so beautiful all around. The Inn keepers go way... More

My husband booked this for our first anniversary, and we had a perfect stay! I loved the serenity of the property-- lots of green grass, beautiful trees, and a great night's sleep in peace and quiet. It was the best of both worlds because we felt like we were out in the country but we could also get to different... More

This beautiful property and home is truly an experience of peace in a pastoral, yet sophisticated, setting! The home, built by Master Builder Braxton Dixon, provides a glimpse of fine craftsmanship not seen these days.....beautiful, repurposed woods and stone, interesting and historical doors, stairs (from New Orleans and London) are just the beginning! We stayed three days in the cottage... More

I was looking for a quiet romantic quick getaway to celebrate my Hubby's 40th birthday. He isn't a fan of bed and breakfast so I took a huge risk.The moment we arrived he was sold.

This 'Gem of the Tennessee Hills' is now our favorite B&B! Simple. End of story. From that first "Hello" when we walked in those antique front doors to the last wave, owners and Innkeepers Fred & Mary Jane made us feel at home.

My wife and I stayed here for her birthday weekend. We live only twenty minutes away but had never heard of the Thistletop. We found it through Tripadvisor one Friday morning and were fortunate that this just happened to be one of those rare weekends when they had a vacancy on short notice. Quite simply, it was the stay-cation of... More
