“The perfect lodging”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

How nice to know that the next time I travel to Nashville (and there will be a next time—such a fun little city) I can relax with wonderful friends in their lovely Braxton-Dixon-designed home. Innkeepers Fred and Mary Jane Peace made me feel like an old friend when they welcomed me to their spacious home. Its weathered wood, stone, slate, and colorful and unique artworks reminded me of why I travel—and why when it comes to lodging, I seek out the exceptional. This is a bed & breakfast not to be missed.

We just returned from our first-ever B&B stay. All I have to say is that we now spoiled and this amazing experience will be hard to beat. Fred and Mary Jane are awesome hosts! They made us feel like family. The house was so warm and inviting, we really felt like we were home (except more relaxed). It was hard to leave. The home was clean and there were so many activities to do ( walking, board games, pool, movies, hot tub, etc). We hardly left the place! Fred spoiled us with awesome food and conversation every morning. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon. Thanks Fred and Mary Jane!

Room Tip: Try the suite! It is a little oasis. The bed was so comfortable and you had your own living and din...

Just returned from a visit at Thistletop Inn, everything was just perfect, our hosts were amazing and instantly fell in love with them, they will make you feel welcome immediately. This was there calling. The food was amazing, the bed was sooo comfortable, the two most important things about a bed and breakfast. We have stayed in about thirty bed and breakfast and this one is among the best. Please do not hesitate in staying here, you will not be disappointed. Also Goodlettsville is a nice town to visit and eat in case you do not want to go to far. I will tell everyone that is planning to go to Nashville to stay here. Love you guys, Joanne and Jesse

Room Tip: Saw both rooms both beautiful, my room upstairs was very spacious.

It is difficult to overstate our enthusiasm for the wonderful Thistletop Inn. My girlfriend and I just returned from a wonderful weekend stay which was both relaxing and luxurious. We are already considering a return visit. Of our many stays at B&B's and small inns, this was simply the best. The food was great, the appointments many and hosts Mary Jane and Fred Peace treated us as favorite family members.
The two spacious suites are private, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the larger Dauphine Suite which was delightful. We marveled at the detailed appointments throughout the suite; not only an ironing board and iron, but also spray starch; not only wine glasses, but champagne glasses and bucket. There are books to read, videos to watch, and games to play.
The public spaces are as wonderful as the suites. The lower level features a billiard table, fireplace, comfortable furniture, full bar, exercise room with equipment, hot tub and bathroom with a shower. On the main floor, there are numerous places to read, listen to music or just hang out. The kitchen and dining areas are as beautiful as the food that Fred prepares is delicious.
Mary Jane and Fred went out of their way to make us feel as if this was our own home. We unhesitatingly recommend this special oasis to anyone wanting a blissful escape.

My wife and I visited the Thistletop Inn in early September 2011 to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The stay was nothing short of perfect. The Thistletop Inn is worth a visit just for the spectacular architecture found there, but that is only the beginning. Spacious, immaculately clean and well-appointed suites await guests of the Inn. The bed and bath linens are of highest quality and the bed in the Taos Suite had that "just like home" feel. Guests have access to an indoor hot tub and excercise equipment, a hugh flat screen tv located in one of several spacious and comfortable common areas, and so many other ammenties that they are impossible to list.

Breakfast is a "major event" at the Thistletop Inn. My wife and I looked forward to our morning visit with owners Fred and Mary Jane Peace as Fred prepared a wonderful meal in their casual, welcoming kitchen. I should also mention their bottomless cookie jar and cake tray. Wonderful!

Speaking of Fred and Mary Jane, in all of our travels which includes stays at over 30 different B&B's, we have never encountered more gracious and accommodating hosts. Fred and Mary Jane were ever present to assist with our needs, yet, the privacy offered at the Thistletop Inn is unmatched. Their recommendations on area dining, shopping and entertainment were spot on. They are wonderful folks who know how to make you feel at home during your visit.

This is an upscale establishment at a price point only slightly above most average b&b's. Since the Thistletop Inn is anything but average, we were very pleased with the rate.

In summary, if you are looking for a great getaway location near Nashville you will not find a better place to stay. We will definately be back to see Fred and Mary Jane, and yes, our comfortable suite at the Thistletop.
