If I had to sum up this place in short; Overpriced, dirty, neighbors had bars on the windows, very small & cold room, zero attention to details and lots of talk of how he'll be our personal concierge. We do not expect special treatment, just a fair product or service as paid for & advertised. We've stayed in B&Bs for years and I've never written a bad review until now. Upon arrival Richard said "Never use the front or side door . . . a guest left & forgot to lock the door and we found a homeless man inside." The entrance guests use, was the converted garage, complete with gas fireplace, filthy windows and a TV that to change the channel, you had to go up the stairs to the kitchen & change the channel on that TV. We arrived at the stated time and he immediately took us up to the room which he said "No one has been here for a week, so I need to vacuum it". The hair ball in the bathtub was an instant turnoff. He advertises "Claw foot shower/leg tub", what he doesn't say is the finish has worn off & repaired with spray paint and the wallpaper is peeling on every wall. Warning! Do not turn on the fan in this room, the dirt caked on the blades and the doorways is what you'd expect in an Out of Order bathroom at a single pump truck stop. The only heat in the room was an electric radiator type, not what you'd expect for $300 a night. We have returned repeatedly to most every B&B we've stayed, even the inexperienced Innkeepers were gracious and had very clean homes. By any stretch this place could never be called clean. As luck would have it, we had a real emergency that demanded we return home, Richard was kind enough to charge a $50 penalty for leaving by noon. Then when I sent an email suggesting it might have been an honest error, he asked that I call him, when I did he called me a creep and hung up. So much for honest graciousness.

Response from The Timothy Demonbreun House, Owner at The Timothy Demonbreun House

This gentleman really sets the bar for being a jerk and a loser. He makes a 4 day reservation a month and then two hours post checkout time which is 10 am on the second day, needs to check out with no notice. As most B&B's we do have a 5 day cancellation notice which he acted like did not apply to him. But in the spirit of Christmas I was happy to give him a full refund but did retain $50 of his deposit for checking out to hours late. You would think he would appreciate my concession. But then "The Jerk" writes this fictional short story after calling me and demanding I send him a check for $50. This is the best laugh I have had in 2020 and want to thank him for never attempting to stay here in the future: I would not even allow him to stay in the yard.

Amazing stay! Wish I could give 6 stars. Richard is amazing and so friendly. He goes above and beyond. Also quite the chef. Breakfast is served with fresh eggs from the chickens in the back of the house. Absolutely will visit again!

We spent 5 nights at the Timothy Demonbreun House for our honeymoon and would have stayed 7 if the other nights weren't already booked by other guests. Richard, the host, manager, and owner is the great grandchild of the namesake and famed Timothy Demonbreun, whom even a main road in Nashville is named after. Richard was great and took phenomenal care of us. He takes this B&B to heart. It's like his baby. He makes fresh to order breakfasts and goes so far as raising the chickens there that provide the eggs. We will definitely stay there again when we return again to Nashville. We reside in Texas.

We visited Music City for our babymoon and decided to stay at this B&B because of the reviews and boy did it deliver on all fronts. The home is lovely and Richard was the icing on the cake. He makes you feel like you're a part of the family and is just a wonderful host and cook! The breakfast was to die for every morning and he would offer great recommendations for things to do or where to eat. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
