Tennessee Hotels

Hotel city
404 Hotel
404 12th Ave. S., Gulch
While significantly cooler than most hotels in the city (it’s in the up-and-coming Gulch neighborhood in what used to be a mechanic’s garage), this five-room gem still revolves around Southern hospitality. The vibe—super comfortable but not overbearing as there’s no formal concierge or room service—is more like a well-appointed guest house rather than a traditional hotel. The sprawling rooms (some have spiral staircases leading to additional loft spaces) are decked out in Sferra linens, Malin + Goetz toiletries, and Turkish towels; the communal lounge area features vintage furniture and work from local artists. And the adjacent restaurant is great.
Moonshine Hill
5456 Old Tennessee 96, Franklin
Leiper's Fork, the tiny village home of Moonshine Hill, is a mere 30 minutes outside of Nashville but feels worlds away. The beautifully appointed log cabin is great for couples, small groups, and pretty much anyone looking for extreme privacy since guests get free reign of the entire house—plus 22 acres of lush grounds, a pond, and a working fire pit. The interior itself is rustic to its core, with wood-paneled walls, a stone fireplace, and Toile de Jouy linens throughout.
