My wife and I have visited Nashville for many years, and since discovering the Iris Garden Cottages about 25 years ago we always stay there because it offers such comfortable accommodations and it is so conveniently located in the downtown area. The Iris Garden has become our home away from home. Amy and Matt are very gracious hosts who always do their very best to satisfy our needs and make certain our stay is pleasant and our cottage is comfortable. We are grateful to them for all they do to make us feel welcome as we enjoy Nashville.

I would have to say that this was one of the best away from home experiences that we have ever had. It was our first vacation and Matt and Amy made sure that we enjoyed our stay, even showing us the other cabins/units for future visits with our family, gave us great ideas and things to do for our 3 day was wonderful! We had the bbq place up behind us and the smell coming through the cabin made it feel like you were in the woods in the mountains of Tennessee. VERY COZY!!
I would definitely recommend the Iris Gardens to anyone who would like to take a short break through the week or even as a long, family vacation home away from home. We can't wait to go back in the Spring!

We had a weekend retreat for women from our church and stayed at the Iris Garden Cottages in Nashville, IN. The location was so good for shopping. Matt & Amy, the owners were awesome people. One of our women fell on her face while shopping and needed emergency care. Their concern and help was over and above what you would expect from strangers!!!! We will never forget how they cared for us. The cottages are homey and comfortable and you literally walk out the door and begin shopping in the heart of Nashville. They were always available to us and even gave us their cell phone numbers to call them after hours. They own an art gallery in the middle of the cottages. Matt is a very talented artist and that made it much more interesting to see the artist in person when looking at his work. When we left we felt as if we had made new friends and would not hesitate to stay there again. And of course, the leaves were beautiful in October.

Our annual sisters weekend was wonderful again this year! We always stay in the "Heart of Nashville" cottage. It is a perfect spot for us. We can walk a few short blocks to all the stores, come back to our room, drop our goodies, and shop some more! The owners, Matt and Amy are absolutely wonderful! They make their guests feel like family. They are always willing to to help with anything you need, even an emergency car repair! Thanks again, Matt! And...Matt is a very talented artist! Even if you don't stay in one of their cottages, you really should check out their art gallery! We are already anxiously waiting for September 2014.

My friend and I just spent two days in Nashville, IN at the Iris Garden "Heart of Nashville" cabin and found it to be just delightful. The property is somewhat "rustic" which added to our overall adventure. Location couldn't be better -- right downtown where we could walk to almost everything and come back for "rests" if need be. The owners are absolutely fabulous -- so willing to help with anything and everything we needed. One caution: this is probably NOT the place for a "family gathering" as there is very little for young ones to do but we "older folks" loved every minute of it and certainly will return.

Six friends from grade school (45 years ago) all got together for the first time in over 20 years and stayed at Iris Garden Cottage for the best weekend. Wonderful location in downtown Nashville IN. The "Girlfriends Getaway" had everything we needed and even more. Days after we checkout one of us realized she left her Kindle in one of the bedrooms. I called Amy and she found the Kindle. Wonderful staff. We had such a great time we plan to come back next year. Sleeps 7 with 2 bathrooms. Jo Ann

We stayed in one of these cottages a couple of months ago and loved it. It was spacious and had more than we needed in the way of bedrooms and amenities. The staff is amazingly friendly and willing to help you with whatever you need. We even got upgraded free of charge due to a change in booking! We definitely recommend the Iris Garden Cottages to anyone staying in Nashville.
