We're keeping her a 2-bedroom, just a little more functional! We can't wait to share more and welcome guests back later in 2022! -- Important Considerations... let's be sure the Country Cottage is the right fit for you and your group:

* Rental agreement: All guests will be asked to sign a rental agreement within 48 hours of booking (or immediately if arrival is within 48 hours of booking). If not signed, reservation will be canceled and considered a guest-initiated cancelation with applicable penalties.
* Cancelation Policy: when establishing our policy, we chose what we felt was a fair balance in shared responsibility between guests and ourselves. Upon booking, you will be provided a link to purchase a 'cancel for any reason' trip insurance policy. We have lowered our rates to encourage our guests to purchase this policy.
* Only accessible via small flights stairs (both front & back entrances).
* Our home will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2024. The front door, windows and walls are all original and to maintain the historic charm (and because we're in a historic overlay), they're staying. You may hear little creaks or notice little cracks and imperfections that you don't see in the photos. This is part of the beauty and charm of a historic home in our opinion.
* No dishwasher.
* The home is located on a bustling street with through traffic (thanks to our neighborhood's popularity). For this reason, you may hear street noise or passerbys from the living and front bedrooms.
* Please note that while we can accommodate 7 guests, there is only 1 bathroom in the home.
* Our rates are dynamic which means that they change based on day of week, season, etc. Please enter your exact dates and guest count to calculate pricing. We charge an extra guest fee of $25 per guest per night for any guest count over 4 (our max guest count is 7).
* Guests under the age of 21+ are more than welcome however we do ask that they are accompanied by parents or guardians at all times for their own safety.
* Pets: We welcome potty trained dogs with a non-refundable pet fee of $25/dog/ day. Please select the # of pets and this will calculate automatically or notify us post-booking and we will add it. No more than 2 dogs per stay with the following conditions:. Please let us know ahead of time if you plan to bring your pup; Avoid having them on the furniture or keep furniture covered with blankets/covers brought by you; Utilize the pet waste bags we have provided and pick up after your dog(s) once they have done their business outdoors. Please dispose of this in the pet waste receptacle located outside the back of the home; We are unable to accommodate cats, birds, reptiles, ferrets or anything else that is not a human or dog. :)
* We are UNABLE to accommodate trailers, RVs, boats or anything that is not a standard vehicle (car, truck, SUV, motorcycle) in our driveway or on the street around our home.
* We are in the South, y'all. Due to the climate, there are bugs here. We have regular pest control done inside and around the home and yard. You may see bugs while out and about the city, around the exterior of the home and every once in a blue moon one of these unsightly critters makes its way into the home despite our extreme efforts to avoid it. We hate them, too but unfortunately it is unavoidable. Should this occur during your stay, please notify us immediately and we'll get our pest control provider out as quickly as they are available.
* Our home is smart home enabled and has security & safety devices throughout. This includes the use of security cameras (EXTERIOR Only, NO interior) around the property & echo devices which are considered to be listening devices inside the home. The echo devices can be unplugged if you prefer.

We’re Megan and Richard – and the little guy is our son/ future host in training! We’re born and raised Floridians turned Tennesseans, high school sweethearts and the owners + your host(ess) at Southbound Stays (formerly operating as Nashville Vacation Homes). Our hosting journey began in 2016 and today, we own + host 5 traditional short term rentals/ vacation homes and 1 extended stay rental (for stays of 30-90 days). *Get social with us and follow our adventures at SouthboundStays.* We were guests before we were hosts and still operate with a guest-first mentality. During your stay, we want you to feel the comfort of being “at home” with the laid back feeling of being away from yours. We put care into every aspect of our homes and your stay: * We purposely selected our homes based on their amazing locations * All of our homes are privately enjoyed and setup exclusively to welcome guests (we are not present in or at the home during your stay) * I lovingly designed each home with intention to maximize the space and comfort * We made a list of things we wished we had during our own travels and put them in our homes * We allow dogs* at every one of our homes and even they get treats upon arrival (*added fee) * Through our local short term rental association and our own, direct partnerships with local businesses, we have worked to get discounts for our guests to save you hundreds on dining, attractions and even luggage storage while in town * You will always have direct access to us, the owners and host(ess). Whatever it is that brings you to Nashville TN, Leiper’s Fork TN or Cocoa Beach FL, our homes are ready to welcome you for your time here. ** PS: We operate in accordance with local laws and are permitted to operate in Davidson County, the City of Berry Hill, Williamson County and Brevard County.**
