Easy going travelers can stay in an East Nashville cozy, historic potters home on a budget. With a separate entry and a nifty pull-out couch with a fluffy, luxe foam topper.

If needed, there are two more rooms available. To book more rooms, ask for more details.

The space

The home is a cozy, 1928 brick craftsman bungalow with modern, craftsman furnishings. I live on-site and have pets.

This room is an addition, built as a mother-in-law room/ entry. I've used the space as best I know how, creating a small room to accommodate the easy going guest(s) who wants someplace easy and affordable to stay.

I've put a pullout couch in, but chose a sleeper so I can have guests anytime and they'll reel welcome and have enough room. I've decided I'd like to open this to more than just friends and pass on a great, approachable space to AirBNB guests as well.

Each room is designed and curated to be its own cozy space, full of personality, comfort, and beautiful details to be enjoyed.

The house may look small, but wraps around the back, with several entries, an extended upstairs / raised roof, and a back entry that doubles as a great guest room.

As a graphic designer and potter, I create much of the spaces to be functional, beautiful and well-crafted for their purpose. My dishes, my art, my linens and bedding all are hand made, picked, or put together to be beautiful and functional.

Guests can drink out of handmade ceramic mugs, and enjoy the space of someone who cares about all the details that make a great personal experience.

Guest access

Coffee (Keurig) and filtered water are always available. The timer is automatically set to turn on in the morning; power button is on the back, lower right corner.

Clean, white, fluffy large towels are available. Since shampoo is such a personal choice, I ask that guests be sure to take care of this detail.

There is a walgreens around the corner open until 10pm and a 24-7 Kroger, so I don't purchase spare toothbrushes or items, as you can get preferred items exceptionally close 24-7.

I have a large bottle of water for guests available to drink during their stay, more is in the Brita jug in the kitchen as well.

The patio is available to for guests to sit and enjoy; cushions are kept in the brown plastic chest, please place back when done.

Both restrooms are technically shared, so please be considerate. The upstairs Roomate leaves by 4:30am each day, while I use the downstairs BR late at night and in the morning also.

In addition to the upstairs bed/ bedroom, There is also a pull out bed in the back room available with a comfortable foam topper added.

If you have several people joining, I have three air mattress available. I recommend bringing your own pillow if this is the case.

Interaction with guests

I work from home, so I'm available often for questions, care, and area information.

I am a graphic designer and local potter. So, you can expect to know I'm up late at night throwing pottery in the basement, walking the dog outside in the morning, and working from the home office during the day.

I love to meet new friends, so you're always welcome to strike up a conversation if it's clear I'm not working.

Other things to note

There is a Kroger (grocery store), Walgreens, gas station, local pizza, post office, excellent wine and liquor store, convenient store, and Mexican restaurant all within one block/ walking distance.

Within short drives are other excellent local restaurants, artisan ice cream (jeni's), coffee shops, great local pubs, bars and music venues.

Staeven was a GREAT host. His place is clean and comfortable. He went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and at home. It was a great stay in Nashville and it was hard to say goodbye. I would have taken his sweet dog home with me if I could've.

Everything is as advertised. Staeven's pets are the friendliest, though I'm just starting to find out that I may be allergic to fur. Even though the bathroom is shared with him, our "schedules" never conflicted. Also, while the place is set up to where you would have regular interaction with the host, he doesn't seem to be the type to force a conversation. Having my personal door was also great. Protip: rent a car when visiting Nashville

The allergies here in Nashville are pretty bad too, hope that was only the case. Thanks for the review! :)

Stæven’s house is very cozy, a nice getaway for a few days. The animals are super sweet and Stæven is wonderful. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to see more of nashville than from a hotel room. Everything seemed to be about 10-15 minutes away which was very convenient. I'll definitely be back.

The Cozy Hideaway Room was perfect. The room was clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable complete with its own entrance. Steven provided magazines, purified water and offered helpful tips for East Nashville attractions. The fur babies were friendly and adorable, I wanted to take Turbo home! All around Five stars!

I'm a graphic designer and potter. My home is my workspace, so it's important for it to be inspired and creative, as well as clean! I'm always working on my home, baking, gardening outside or throwing pots in the basement pottery studio.

I've lived in Nashville for 11 years, and know all the great places to go—and love my community, neighborhood and city.

I have three fantastic kitties and a sweet pup. My pets are so incredibly sweet and loving. They'll melt your heart and become your sweet friends while you stay. We love inviting folks into our home and hosting great Nashville experiences. I treat everyone like they're an out-of-town family friend that's popping through.

I'm the owner of Bungalow Potter, an online pottery shop and basement pottery studio. I make dinnerware, bakeware, serveware, and tile. Your rooms are named as such as you're staying at Bungalow Potter's! You'll be drinking out of mugs I've made and be surrounded by other pieces while you enjoy my warm, cozy, eclectic home.
