Enjoy your stay in my charming downstairs apartment in a beautifully furnished home on the National Register of Historic Places. If you don't want the hub-bub of Nashville but want to explore the Tennessee countryside, Murfreesboro is for you. My historic home is private yet located just off the main square, which is full of shops, restaurants and pubs. Come enjoy!
If you're a history buff this red brick Federal style home is for you. It is within the historic district of downtown Murfreesboro. The Coy Dunson is a downstairs apartment that features a large private bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. It has 2 private entrances, side yard with cafe table and chairs, big windows, lots of light, and high ceilings. The yard is big and has plenty of green space for kids to run around. Private entrance is handicap accessible.
You can access all parts of the yard, the charming house patio, cozy side porch as well as private side yard--perfect for an alfresco meal, wine or coffee. You can sit out front on 2 private porches or on your own private side--whatever suits your mood. The parlor in the main house is accessible to all and a great room to have a chat or just settle in next to a wood burning fire in the comfy couches with a good book.
I want your stay to be awesome. I'll be available 24/7 whether on or off the premises. I love to share my story with the house and the history of house and the town. At the same time I respect your privacy and wish for everyone staying here to feel at home, and to interact as much or as little as you please.
I am an animal lover and have 3 dogs and a (somewhat wayward) cat. They are limited to certain parts of the house and are not a distraction for those that are not animal lovers. However the dogs love our visitors and are a large part of the home.
For those that love the outdoors, you will love this space. I am a crazy gardener and have filled the grounds with beautiful flowers and gardens and many nooks and crannies to sit in and enjoy the great weather in Tennessee. (Smokers are free to smoke outside.)
It is handicap friendly with a ramp leading to the first floor entrance.
We welcome wedding parties and other small gatherings. Ask me about this.
I teach history at the college level and write for a Nashville-based magazine. I also compete in trail races around the South. And I don't wear glasses, by the way. That's a nerd tattoo. Librarians find it unspeakably hot. (Librarians may stay at the house for 10% off.)
