the germantown inn | Opened: October 2016

1218 Sixth Ave. N., Nashville, TN 37208 • (615) 581-1218 

The germantown inn is appropriately located in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood. With six rooms and playful décor, it is definitely a unique boarding option for Nashville visitors. From the presidential posters and custom-made wallpaper to the Andra Eggleston curtains, every corner has a photo-worthy backdrop. We especially adore the walls of the historic home-turned-hotel, which showcase original architectural features — interior designer McLean Barbieri expertly paired the new with the old. Each suite is dedicated to a president and features a presidential portrait by Caitlin Mello. The largest room is 376 square feet, and the smallest is 255 square feet, each with charm and character all their own.
