Nashville’s historic Germantown neighborhood has just gotten its first boutique hotel. The new germantown inn opened Friday, December 16 in one of the oldest buildings in Germantown, a two-story, Federal-style house constructed in 1865. The six-bedroom luxury inn offers guests a red brick exterior, tall ceilings, large picture windows, an outdoor courtyard and a private rooftop terrace.
The newly designed inn incorporates modern textures and updated amenities to balance the inn’s original historic character. The design, led by Nashville-based interior designer McLean Barbieri, includes custom pieces that were commissioned by local artists to create an authentic, Nashville feel. Drapery fabric was created by Andra Eggleston, wall paper and installations are from New Hats Projects and the inn’s custom lighting was designed by another Nashville-based designer, Southern Lights Electric.
Jim Creason, who is the managing partner of the inn and the owner of Germantown-based Trust Development, oversaw the renovation and construction of the property along with his partner, Phil Hyde.
Each of the six suites is named after a former United States president with connections to Tennessee. Caitlin Mello, local artist and graphic designer, created colorful presidential portraits for each of the inn’s suites. Mello designed each portrait to reflect characteristics of each president and weaved in elements that reflect their respective connections to the region.
The inn’s proximity to downtown Nashville makes it well-suited for business travelers as well as sightseers. Its location is minutes from some of the city’s best restaurants and boutique shopping.
germantown inn is also available for whole-house rentals, weddings, business retreats, meetings or other private events. Visit www.germantowninn.com or call 615-581-1218 for more information.
