traveler reviews for this nashville house rental

Magical musical time in Nashville

Review submitted: June 12, 2014   Date of arrival: May 29, 2014

We had a family group of seven who came from all over the country to meet together in Nashville to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We chose The Duck House to be our gathering place. The house itself is wonderfully centrally located, but in a beautiful residential area, and is spacious and comfortable with a lot of character. But the true beauty of The Duck House is Jan, the owner, herself. What originally seemed like it might be a little awkward - the fact that she lives at the house during your stay - turned out to be the best part of a great trip. Jan is an active songwriter who is constantly working with co-writers and putting together music. When she had people coming over to write, she said she would hide back in her bedroom - - but when we asked her if we could eavesdrop they worked in the main living areas. We were treated to the wonderful experience of hearing the music evolve. She has since sent us the demos of the songs they were working on. She also gave us a personal tour of Music Row, great advice on where to go for the songwriters' showcases, and a heads-up on free rehearsals before the CMT Awards shows, etc. She is a fun, warm, and knowledgeable lady, and we highly recommend a stay with her at The Duck House.

A Magical and Memorable Stay in Music City

Review submitted: June 12, 2014   Date of arrival: May 29, 2014

Seven of us from over the country gathered at the Duck House for a 60th birthday family celebration. The accommodations were fully as represented, and convenient to much to do in Nashville. Jan provided good directions and recommendations as might be expected generally. More than that, however, Jan truly helped make the week in Music City magical, providing much more than a place to stay. It wasn’t that she was ever-present (and she would have been perfectly willing to have been, and often was, imperceptible), but to the extent we were open to what she was doing when our times overlapped, she certainly didn’t keep us away or make us feel other than welcome.

Jan went out of her way to not only give us a glimpse of Nashville and its music scene, but to bring us right inside it - from a private tour of Music Row, recommendations/invitations for coffee shop-type songwriter venues, unexpected access to some pre-CMA fest activities, a private concert of some of her songs, and letting us watch and listen to the songwriting process up to the time that she and her budding artists left to cut a demo. This was on top of what we had already planned and did - from first-rate dining, to concerts at the Ryman and Grand Ole Opry, to honky-tonks on Broadway, to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, etc, etc.

It is truly difficult to see how staying in Nashville could have been made better.

Enjoyed our stay!!

Review submitted: April 27, 2014   Date of arrival: April 3, 2014

Great location, close to anywhere you want to be in the Nashville area. We were apprehensive, at first, about sharing space with a "stranger" and possibly feeling intrusive, but Jan was a wonderful hostess who made us feel at home. She is a busy woman, given her career, doing her own thing, she was mostly out of sight giving us full reign of the house and freedom to do as we please. However, when needed for anything, Jan was accessible to us at any given hour. She was very helpful, providing directions and suggestions to must see sites, etc. We may have come as strangers, but we left as friends!

Owners response: It's so wonderful to meet such great guests who usually become friends!
