“Cozy and Convenient Refuge”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I needed a place to stay in Nashville, and I opt for the B&B when possible. Ellen was very friendly, and helpful about Nashville -- I used their recommended supper place both nights. The breakfast food was great -- she accomodated my vegetarianism very well. I had my own bathroom across the hall -- it and the room were very nice. The place was quiet, which is important to me. The wifi worked well. I was in walking distance of downtown Nashville. There was parking in the back. Just what I want in a B&B!

Room Tip: Two rooms have ensuite -- I was lucky to get the third one, and it was a minor inconvenience to cros...

Thanks Ellen for a great stay in Nashville. The neighborhood is lovely and nice to be out of the bustle of downtown. Loved the breakfasts and your hospitality. Also were able to see some great music, thanks to Ellen's suggestions.

We are thrilled to know about the Big Bungalow, and recommend it to everyone that comes to Nashville hoping to have a unique stay.

Having attended many music "rounds" there, we have had the opportunity to observe the style, service and attention paid to all guests there, whether they are at the BB for an intimate night of music, or for a weekend stay in one of the suites.

If you are looking for something besides a big hotel and want the scoop from a Nashville "insider" on where to eat and hear great music in Music City, then visit with Ellen.

And a massage is a MUST! She is one of the best licensed professional massage therapists in town.

Just spent 4 nights @ the Big Bungalow while visiting our daughter in Nashville. We were very pleased. It's a great location in East Nashville, just across the river from downtown and all the attractions there. We had the spacious Grand Suite with the king bed and master bath. Didn't get to use the jetted tub, but it looked very inviting and had a great view of the downtown skyline. The suite also included a little "TV room" which had a futon which could accommodate additional sleepers if needed. Ellen, the owner, is very personable and helpful. She and innkeeper Chrissy ( sp?) took turns with breakfast: a quiche, fritata, french toast and scrambled eggs. We appreciated the gated parking available @ night. Our weather while there was very springy, so we enjoyed some time in the afternoons reading on the large front porch. The screened patio in the rear was also an enjoyable place for some evening visiting. Definitely beats a hotel !!

Room Tip: There are only 3 bedrooms, and the Grand Suite has the king bed.

Right from my initial contact with Ellen about reserving the Grand Suite, she was helpful and intent on making our vacation in Nashville memorable. Ellen was always looking to offer advice on outings and restaurants if you needed a suggestion. Once we realized how noisy and busy the downtown hotel area was, we knew we made the right choice in staying at the "The Big Bungalow". Thanks Ellen and great work.

I recently had the wonderful experience of being a guest at the Big Bungalow. I enjoyed the warm, cozy accommodations and warm efficiency of the innkeeper. Ellen was so hospitable and could not do enough to guarantee her guests a memorable stay. She provided information about local hotspots, gave directions, made reservations and of course let's not forget the fabulous breakfast!!! The bed and breakfast itself is lovely with many interesting pieces of artwork. I look forward to my return visit to Nashville and would not even consider staying anywhere else.

We stayed here last minute and was warmly greeted by Ellen. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area of Nashville and we got to see up-in-comers at a little known
honky tonk. The house was nice and breakfast ok but nothing to write home about. However I would recommend staying there instead of any hotel for sure !
