9 / 365 - The Thistletop Inn

Last weekend Eric and I got the chance to get away for the weekend. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary.

The Thistletop Inn is located an easy 15 minutes drive from downtown Nashville. It was beautiful.
I would describe the decor as rustic southwest...

There was this really neat stairwell... the stairs were from a London Subway station! I thought they were amazing, although the picture really does not do justice to them.

I also thought this sink was cool... the base of it was a piece of slate!

This is a photo of the downstairs. There was a four sided opening. The first night we were there we visited with the owners and other guests in front of the fire.

Here is another spiral staircase. The architecture of the building was so interesting!

This sign on the bathroom shows the quirky humor of the owners... we so enjoyed getting to know them! Truly we arrived as strangers and left as friends.

They have a meeting room which was rented out one afternoon, and they provided a lunch for it. They also made a lunch for us to take along on our travels.

I enjoyed sitting in the kitchen and watching others work. ;)

Get a load of this chandelier... isn't it wonderful?

We woke up to snow the last day we were there. (I know the white balance is off here... sorry.)

All in all we had a delightful time at the Thistletop Inn. Service was wonderful, the beds and linens were soft, and the accomodations delightful. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a special place to get away in the Nashville area.


  1. You don't recommend the peterson inn and cottage?

  2. Well, sure... come on down. But it will be neither as clean, nor quiet, and the breakfast is nowhere NEAR as tasty. LOL. :)
