Nashville is not just the home of delicious and juicy hot chicken, sandwiched between thick slices of fluffy white bread. Anyone else drooling right now? Nashville has a whole lot more going for it, from a seriously poppin’ music scene to some really brilliant art. Check out honky-tonk at Lower Broad, watch live comedy at Doyle and Debbie, or sample good ol’ Tennessee whiskey on a local distillery tour. Bottom's up!

But whether you’re there for nightlife, music, or restaurants, or you are just in the running for seriously good hot chicken, make sure you pick the right place to stay. You need to continue the Nashville vibes from morning to night. And what better place to look for accommodation than Airbnb? Luckily for you, we've found some cracking places to lay your head, for quite literally any occasion. Here are the very best Airbnbs in Nashville, handpicked by us. Thank us later.

Best Nashville Airbnbs

The luxury riverside loft on Broadway

This luxury loft has everything you need for a swanky stay in Nashville. It overlooks the surrounding area, with spectacular views of the Titans Stadium and the Cumberland River. And the best part? It sleeps 10 guests, so this is a particularly good spot if you’re coming for a Fourth of July or New Year’s Eve party. Here you’ve got a chilling space (as well as lots of room for dancing) a kitchen and a pool table. Perfect.

Tucked away in SoBro, this is a luxurious spot for six guests  - especially Dolly Parton lovers. SoBro is one of Nashville’s coolest areas (formerly its warehouse district) and is choc-a-bloc full of great museums and restaurants but without that stressful tourist vibe. The flat itself is part of a tall block, featuring a communal outdoor pool, library, and gym – plus it has its own balcony, so you can look peacefully out over Nashville.

You can truly have it all in this Nashville Airbnb. Not only are you a block away from the brilliant Five Points, where you can sip on cocktails, vibe to the music, and snack on some seriously good food, but the place itself has everything you need for the perfect getaway. After a morning of exploring and coffee, simply laze by your private pool for the rest of the day. Plus reviews say the host’s guidebook is seriously good, so you won’t ever be stuck for things to do.

For something a little different, you’ll love this vintage cottage near Five Points. It’s named Draper’s Cottage after Mr. Draper, who built it in 1912 for his family, and is currently owned by Appalachian Folk musician Jeni Hankins. Feel like you’ve stepped back in time (or into a movie) once you notice the walls filled with vinyl records and bookcases filled with vintage books. Plus, if you sit on the porch for long enough you’ll spot sparrows and rabbits.

Looking for somewhere clean, private, and equipped with its own pool surrounded by sun loungers? We have just the place. Immaculately styled, the guesthouse is constantly flooded with light, and to get to the bedroom you’ve got to climb up a ladder to the secret loft space. Spend your days lounging by the pool, or get out into the fantastic Five Points area, a cultural neighborhood full of restaurants, shops, and galleries.

This is one of those Airbnbs that makes a trip worth it alone. Head out for a great night out in trendy East Nashville (or go a little further to the lively Five Points), and retreat here after for a cozy AF hungover Sunday, surrounded by patterned rugs, incredibly high ceilings, and tall potted plants. You’re also a short Uber away from Downtown, so you can get into Nashville’s honky tonk scene and tuck into delicious food. This is a seriously good spot for a group of four friends.

If you’re looking to combine a lively trip in Nashville with a slice of peace and quiet, this adult treehouse should do the trick. Found in Mount Juliet, this treehouse is just a 20-minute drive out of Nashville – and it really is something to behold. You’ll find it hidden in the forest, with a private deck complete with tables and chairs, and a hammock, surrounded by only nature. The interiors are super cozy, and you’ll wake up to the sounds of birds every morning. What could be better?

This vintage trailer is one of those totally unique stays that Airbnb is so good for. The Spartan ‘Blueberry’ trailer, with its out firepit outside, feels completely secluded - and inside is surprisingly modern. It was designed by the farm’s owner Brian Oaks, and you have access to the surrounding 40 acres of farmland, including a huge vegetable garden and chickens. There’s even an outdoor claw-foot tub. You’re only 15 minutes from Nashville, but you might never want to leave.

Live out your cozy cabin dreams at this stunning little cabin in Belmont-Hillsboro, a lovely area in Nashville tucked between two university colleges, full of old-town style shopping streets lined with boutiques. The cabin sleeps two and is the perfect getaway for a couples’ weekend, with a deck out front where you can watch the day go by. Vaulted barnwood ceilings slope down to cozy beds. The perfect hidden oasis away from it all.

For a slice of history, Germantown is where it’s at. And this Airbnb takes it all in its stride, encapsulating the essence of old-school Nashville with an oak fireplace, hardwood floors, and intricate historic details. It’s also seriously nice from the outside - a red brick house with glass front doors, surrounded by tall trees. Oh and it’s on Airbnb Plus, so you know you can trust it for the luxuries and comforts.

11. The industrial loft in Downtown Nashville

This brilliant loft is right in the middle of the action, just two blocks from Broadway’s record stores, honky-tonks, bars, and food scene. And the space itself is incredibly cool too, with high ceilings, stylish furniture, wall art, and huge industrial-sized windows letting in swaths of daylight. And when we say wall art, we mean like the walls themselves are painted with huge murals, or featuring exposed brick and that oh-so-chic weathered paint.

12. The vintage suite in 12 South

This unique apartment (aptly named ‘The Honey Bee Suite’ by the hosts), in 12 South is as hip inside as the surrounding area. The interiors feature dark wood with rich pink furnishings and rugs and curtains with intricate floral designs. But the location is what really sells it, surrounded by excellent cafés (including Five Daughters Bakery, which serves up the iconic King Kong cronut), pizza places, and thrift stores.

Arty types, you’ll like this place. At the center of Marathon Village, tucked away within 100-year-old warehouse buildings, you’ll find this sweet little flat which is perfect for a cultural weekend away. It’s called Marathon Village because the Marathon car was designed there, by the way. But the interiors make this the perfect cozy escape, with quirky framed art all over the, pops of colorful furniture, and the odd coffee table book to flick through. Perfect.

14. The broadway apartment off Music Row

Music lovers, check this out. This historic broadway apartment is situated a stone’s throw from Music Row, which is truly the heart of Nashville’s music scene, particularly country and gospel (Country Music Hall of Fame, anyone?). But the apartment alone is enough to make the trip for, with cozy interiors, dark wood furnishings, windows letting in lots of light, and obviously a Tennessee sign stuck up on the wall.

Visiting Nashville with a slightly bigger group of friends? This place has got you covered. Not only is it in the coolest neighborhood ever, it sleeps a whopping 12 guests. But fight the urge to stay forever in this ultra-cool Airbnb, and get out into Wedgewood Houston. There you’ll find fantastic galleries, lively bars, and a ton of great food spots – check out Gabby’s for a burger or Bastion for sumptuous small plates.

16. The music lovers heaven in Music Row

This is the ultimate getaway for music lovers, not only because of its location on Music Row but because it’s actually covered in hanging guitars. Oh, and the hosts call it the ‘Acoustic Retreat’. In fact, they say you’ll shout ‘Y'ALL... IT'S ON MUSIC ROW’ when you arrive. Fair enough. This fantastic pad features a love seat, smart tv, funky chair, and hardwood floors, and is in walking distance of all the major spots. You absolutely don’t need a car.

This perfect little oasis is found at the back of a garden in the fantastic Belmont-Hillsboro neighborhood. It’s the ideal place for a couples’ weekend break, surrounded by flowers, plants, and chirping birds, and with its own private porch. So combine cozy nights in with days of exploring all that the area has to offer – you’re just a short walk from Belmont, Hillsboro Village, and 12 South, and a little further along you’ll find Music Row.

18. The tiny home in a quiet neighborhood

Yep, that’s right, the ever-so-popular tiny home exists in Nashville, too. And this one is a little cutie, with wood paneling and a loft bedroom. It hosts for, so would be perfect for a family with young kids, and it’s situated in the quiet neighborhood of Pennington Bend, close to the riverside bike trail. If you’re looking for an activity weekend for all the family, this is the place, but you’re super near Nashville’s main attractions too.

This stunning re-modeled log cabin in the rolling hills of North Nashville is a truly perfect escape from it all. Surrounded by 27 acres, you get total privacy, but you’re just 15 minutes from all the great Nashville hotspots – the honky tonks on Broadway, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Opry Mills Mall. But you might just choose to spend your time sitting out on the front porch drinking coffee and listening to the sounds of nature. Blissful.

Fancy floor-to-ceiling windows, a huge outdoor deck for dining al fresco, and even a cozy lounge area out the front? We’ve got you. This fantastic family home has you covered for your Nashville stay, plus you’re in the historic neighborhood of Germantown, and just a mile or so from lower Broadway, so you’ll have all the food and drink spots you desire. We particularly recommend grabbing brunch at Steadfast coffee, which is just a block from the Airbnb.
