I stayed at Thistletop Inn for several days and Fred and Mary Jane were outstanding hosts. This is a beautiful, high end bed and breakfast with additional accommodations in a cottage and a studio. The architecture is amazing reclaimed beams, wood and multiple historic elements. There is a spiral staircase from the London underground, doors from Paris and numerous other... More

Private,, quaint, all of the amenities. Fred and MaryJane were awesome and very accommodating. If you want to visit Nashville but not stay in the city area this was a great place to escape to after a day in and around Nashville. Very Zen, peaceful place!!

Never did we expect the kindness and thoughtfulness we received throughout our stay, they are a wonderful couple who made their home ours with nothing too much trouble, we felt we were visiting friends and feel for sure...

We came to the Thistletop Inn to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary and left with an overwhelming feeling of love, warmth, beauty, laughter, and serenity that encompassed our stay.

Never in million years would I guess so much love and happiness would be generated from these old wood walls... but wait!

Gorgeous, relaxing, comfortable, calming, and welcoming. Those are the words I would use to describe Thistletop. We came tired and worn. We left rejuvenated and happy. The house is a Braxton Dixon design of perfection. Every room is designed to each square inch to be amazing. In addition to the amazing architecture and design, Mary Jane and Fred have set... More

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.
