Cozy Up At These 7 Vintage Inns And B&Bs Throughout Tennessee
Tennessee is chock full of gorgeous contemporary hotels and even a spare motel that has a bit of southern charm, but if you’re looking to really experience the beauty of the Volunteer State you’ll want to book a room at one of these inns or bed and breakfast spots. Scattered across the state and rife with character, these beautiful places are perfect for folks who are looking to really invest in the hospitable heart of Tennessee.
1. Lane Street Inn - 508 E Lane Street, Shelbyville
Lane Street Inn is located in Shelbyville, which is tucked away in the Middle Tennessee hills not too far from the epic Jack Daniel's Distillery. It's where you should stay if you're headed out to Bell Buckle or perhaps looking to attend the RC Cola Moon Pie Festival this June. The gorgeous inn not only has modern amenities but also boasts a whole lot of vintage character. And the best part? It's dog-friendly!
2. Commodore Hotel - 114 E Main Street, Linden
The Commodore Hotel and Cafe was built in 1939, and has since been restored to its former glory. Close to Mousetail Landing State Park and tucked away in the beautiful Tennessee wilderness, it offers a cozy getaway for folks looking to leave the craziness of the everyday behind. Fall in love with the hardwood floors and antique doors, and maybe indulge at the on-site cafe, too!
3. The Inn at Evins Mill - 1535 Evins Mill Road, Smithville
Evins Mill is located in Smithville, and operates as a luxury destination in the midst of the gorgeous Tennessee forest. At roughly an hour from Nashville, it's easy for locals to book a room with a view - can you imagine staying the night in that cabin?! - and getting out of the city, even just for a weekend or so. Plus, the creek view rooms simply are to die for.
4. Thistletop Inn - 1284 Hitt Lane, Goodlettsville
This cute little bed and breakfast offers up luxurious accommodations on eleven luscious acres of land. The sweeping views of Middle Tennessee are the icing on the cake, especially if you're looking for peace and quiet in the heart of the south.
5. The James Lee House - 690 Adams Avenue, Memphis
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the James Lee House just might be one of the most opulent bed and breakfast spots on our list. It's a 4-star hotel that's known internationally for its high level of luxury and beauty. If you're looking to stay in a mansion fit for royalty, this is it.
6. Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast - 1300 Mockingbird Lane, Lookout Mountain
Located just over the border in Georgia, we don't mind sharing this Lookout Mountain gem for our neighbor state. Affordable and darling, this stylish bed and breakfast is conveniently located just a few spare miles from all the fun in Chattanooga, Tennessee. If you don't mind hopping state lines for a hot second, this cozy little spot above the clouds might be the perfect place for you.
7. Caroline House Nashville Historic Inn - 906 Bradford Avenue
This historic Inn operates as a Nashville bed and breakfast, located within walking distance from the city's popular 12 South shopping neighborhood. Although it may be hard to leave the personalized and high class accommodations, it's the location of the Caroline House that really blows the competition out of the water.
