Sweet Retreats Episodes

Vacation Rentals in Nashville, Tennessee

Rosemary and her sister, Trudy, are in Nashville, Tennessee, visiting Rosemary's daughter Liz Longely, a singer-songwriter who moved to the area a year ago to further her career. The sisters will tour three very different vacation homes for a week-long stay. Will Rosemary and Trudy be able to agree on the perfect 'sweet retreat' close enough to Liz and up to Trudy's standards?
Rental #1 - 12 South House: It is a two-bedroom home with nice decor in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Nashville -- 12 South. The price is great, too.

Rental #2 - Donelson House: It is a three-bedroom house with beautiful vaulted wood ceilings and lots of natural light. Trudy loves the place but will the distance from Liz's house be a turn off for Rosemary?

Rental #3 - Germantown House: It is a two-story home closest to Liz's house with an open floor plan, three bedrooms and fully furnished.

In the short time since her graduation from Boston's renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. For more information on Liz visit lizlongley.com.

From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. Music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. And visitors have ventured here to experience the music that weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric. For more information visit visitmusiccity.com.

When you hear the name 'Nashville,' do you think country music? If so, you're missing out on all the other aspects of this growing metropolitan area. Although music is a way of life here -- there are even live bands at the airport -- Nashville has much more to offer. The "Athens of the South" boasts almost 20 colleges and universities; attractions such as the Grand Ole Opry and beautiful parks bring visitors from all over; and the low cost-of-living make it attractive for relocation.

Enjoy a variety of show tickets and tours in Nashville, Tennessee. Get tickets for the Grand Ole Opry, the most popular show in Nashville, as well as the equally popular General Jackson cruises and shows. For more information visit nashvillesightseeing.com.

One of the best ways to find a vacation rental is to ask friends for a recommendation. Realtors can be a great resource to find a rental, especially in a vacation destination town.

Before checking out, walk through the premises with the owner or landlord. Make sure that he or she sees no problem with the condition of the property. This can prevent nasty surprises or unexpected bills. It can also buy you time to fix a problem if one is uncovered.
