NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The germantown inn (intended lowercase), the treasured six-suite boutique inn nestled in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood, welcomes the Carriage House.
The new 2,000-square-foot addition is connected to the historic home via a private terrace and encompasses two stories and four additional suites, nearly doubling the capacity of the neighborhood’s only hotel.
Located in one of the oldest buildings in historic Germantown, the germantown inn resides in a two-story, Federal-style house constructed in 1865 that was reimagined into an inspired six-bedroom luxury boutique inn in December 2016.
ARTFUL WOMEN OF INFLUENCE
Like the original property, which features past presidents, each suite in the addition will feature a notable historical figure brought to life in colorful original artwork from graphic designer Caitlin Mello. The Carriage House will feature four of the U.S.’s most influential women—Abigail Adams, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Susan B. Anthony—with artwork hanging in the respective suites for which they’re named.
HOME SWEET CARRIAGE HOUSE
The Carriage House’s exterior, spearheaded by award-winning Nashville architect Van Pond, Jr. of Van Pond Architect PLLC, was approved by the Metro Historic Commission to be architecturally consistent with the surrounding historic Germantown neighborhood and features red-brick exterior and historically-accurate ornamental details.
The interior, curated by Nashville-based designer McLean Barbieri of Annali Interiors, features chic, modern textures and surprising pops of colors. Custom pieces were commissioned from local artists to highlight the city’s creative, including drapery fabric by Andra Eggleston, wallpaper from New Hat Projects as well as the original artwork from Mello.

The inn is also available for whole-house rentals, intimate weddings, business retreats, meetings and special events.
