We recently traveled to Nashville for a two-night getaway without kids. I looked downtown and found the hotels to be extremely pricey ($315+) on a non-event weekday. Knowing that we prefer clean and homey, rather than posh and exclusive, I decided to look at other options. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast, so the 12 South Inn... More

12 South is a delightful trip to a more relaxed time and place. This charming 4 suite property has been updated inside and is freshly redone. The beds are amazing, so comfy you won't want to get going in the morning! John, the helpful Innkeeper, provides tour tips and great coffee for you too! The rooms have small fridges stocked... More

The Inn was quaint and pristine and located in a fantastic neighborhood that was walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We loved the gift cards for breakfast at the Frothy Monkey, not only because they had delicious food, but also because we could go on our own schedule. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the Inn... More

12 South area is a wonderful place to stay outside of the downtown area. Lovely room. Fabulous privacy. Great idea to have gift cards for breakfast. Highly recommended. We stayed in the Junior King Suite and enjoyed the porch for our evening cocktails and first coffee of the morning.

This Inn is wonderful. The Innkeeper, a Mr. John Shenk was wonderful at informing me of all the perks of the area before our arrival, and then when we checked in he made sure we knew even more about the fantastic 12 South block of Nashville, along with giving us simple directions to downtown and other attractions, including great area...

You won't be disappointed, a lovely clean, comfy and peaceful Inn. Your own front door and porch - allowing freedom and a restful stay. Microwave, fridge and coffee machine allow you to keep food and drinks with option to use coffee shop 10min walk away. Plus a selection of excellent restaurants on 12th South. We didn't have a car and... More

Perfect! The privacy is the best. Great location. The owner is very informative. Close to downtown and the Bluebird Cafe. The cards for the Frothy Monkey for breakfast is a lot better than your normal B&B (I don't care where you are from and how many kids you have!) Everything is top notch!

12 South Inn is the perfect getaway. The inn is located in the quaint 12 South neighborhood and nestled among homes. The location is easy access to anywhere you want to go but is nestled away from all hustle and bustle of downtown. A short walk to the restaurants and shops in the 12 South neighborhood and we rented bikes... More

We were on a driving vacation in Tennessee over spring break, just my husband and me. We stayed in this charming house for 4 nights. Our host, John Shenk, met us at our unit and very graciously helped us get settled into the neighborhood. He was very accommodating and had numerous suggestions on things to see and do while in...

We had not been to Nashville for years! Needed accomodations close to downtown. This inn is just beautiful and perfect for a trip to nsshville. 2 blocks from the unique 12 south shops and open air dining. Minutes to the downtown event and multiple types of public transportation are available. The inn is beautiful, immaculate and spacious. Each room has... More
