Exploring The Germantown Inn, Nashville

 In Culture, Guide

If you’re visiting Music City and seeking accommodations, Germantown in northern Nashville is a perfectly quaint neighborhood that reflects a selection of the people, food and culture that makes Tennessee so memorable. Whether you’re passing through on business or a romantic weekend getaway, the Germantown Inn is a convenient destination spot, with bespoke decor and modern accents in a Victorian-style home.

The inn features exposed brick and revitalized wood floors that abound in each of the six suites, aptly named after some of the country’s founding fathers. Local ownership makes this spot friendly and upbeat, with knowledgeable staff who can point you towards nearby attractions.



Home to the Nashville Farmers’ Market and the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Germantown is a highly walkable area with an old-world feel and a sense of community, where this longtime inn houses restaurants full of imaginative southern fare, communal tables, beer gardens and stellar cocktails. From high-end shopping to crafts and antiques, Germantown Inn is your gateway into easygoing Nashville life.


Take a stroll outside the inn and you’re a mere five-minute walk from coffee and sweets at Red Bicycle Coffee and Crepes, or have lunch at Germantown Café before checking the market rates at Little’s Fish Market. Then head to Wilder, where you’ll be dazzled by some of the latest fashions in home decor. Finish off the day with dinner and drinks at Rolf & Daughters, rated #3 Best New Restaurant by Bon Appétit in 2013.


Once you’ve got your hometown fill, head over to Music Row for the kind of legendary nightlife that country outlaws croon about. But upon returning back to the homestead at Germantown Inn, you’ll feel refreshed and ready for whatever the next day may bring.
