Home Sweet Home

Review submitted: August 25, 2013   Date of arrival: July 18, 2013

If you are looking for a home-like atmosphere, The Duck House is the perfect choice. We were going to be in Nashville for a week while my mother-in-law had open heart surgery at Vanderbilt and needed a place to stay that would allow us to bring our little dog. After inquiring about The Duck House, Jan, the owner, promptly contacted us. During our brief exchange of emails, it was very clear that she was going to be a great Hostess.

The Duck House is located in a nice residential neighborhood. In a few short turns you can be on Hillsboro Pike where there are many dining and shopping options. Jan provided us with maps and suggestions for getting around Nashville that were very helpful. With her directions, going to Vanderbilt Hospital was only a 10 minute drive using the back roads.

During this stressful time, it was nice to return to The Duck House instead of a hotel. We were greeted by Misty the cat and often Jan's smiling face. We had the upstairs to ourselves where we could relax and come and go as we pleased. The living area downstairs was comfortable and offered a lot of interesting décor, including Jan's collection of various musical awards and instruments. We shared the house with Jan, including the kitchen, laundry, living and dining areas, as well as the deck and front sun porch. We felt right at home. She even gave us fresh vegetables from her garden. During our stay, Jan was practicing for a performance at one of the local songwriter's venues so we got to enjoy listening to some great music. This was a nice departure from the hectic scene at the hospital. Jan allowed us time to ourselves, but she was also there to talk when we wanted. She is such an interesting lady. We left knowing that we had a new friend in Nashville.

The Duck House and the owner, Jan Buckingham, helped us get through a difficult week and we highly recommend staying there.

Recommended for: pet-friendly

Owners response: I have made some wonderful new friends through renting out THE DUCK HOUSE. I am truly blessed!

Truly a home away from home

Review submitted: August 3, 2013   Date of arrival: July 24, 2013

This was our best B&B experience by far. Jan is a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. Very few places allow pets, especially as large as the one we have; Bud a 103 lb. yellow lab. I think she was a little overwhelmed by his size at first but she whole heartedly accepted him and by the end of our visit they loved each other. The fenced in back yard made it wonderful that we didn't have to keep him confined in the house. I think with a few more days he and Misty might have even become friends!

Our room was very clean and comfortable and we had the whole upstairs to ourselves, privacy was never a concern. We really enjoyed our morning coffee chats. Jan was very helpful mapping out short cuts to make it easy to get around. She's very accommodating and has no problem with erratic hours of tourist.

Our trip was preliminary to moving to the Nashville area and if everyone we meet is as nice as Jan we know we will love it there. It's nice to know we will have a friend when we live there.

Recommended for: age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing

Owners response: I meet the nicest people from this site and it is an honor to make such wonderful new friends!

A Friend for Life!

Review submitted: June 26, 2013   Date of arrival: June 17, 2013

We could not have picked a better home away from home! Staying with Jan was like staying with family and we are going to miss her dearly!

The house is beautiful and feels like home. Jan is very mindful of your time there and is very accommodating. She never makes you feel like you're in her way.

The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and there is more than enough room.

It's so centrally located that it's actually the perfect location, yet you're tucked back in a quiet little neighborhood, so it feels like you're going home at the end of the day.

I highly recommend The Duck House - but not only for the beauty of the home, but for your chance to be blessed by this wonderful woman.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Meeting wonderful people like I do through vacation rentals makes life a great adventure!
