The space

Come enjoy "The best of both worlds". After filling your day with the action of the city retreat to the fresh country air and serenity of this chalet style home. Relax on the 1000 square foot deck and take in the best view in town! Sitting on a 63 acre private gated farm on the outskirts of Nashville in the town of Goodlettsville, home of the little league baseball champions of 2012. We are within walking distance of the largest antique district in Tennessee. Rivergate mall, grocery stores and every desired restaurant, historic landmark or shopping experience awaits you within a 5 mile radius. Named after our beloved black and white paint horse "Valentino" who lived to the ripe old age of 30 and reigned over these acres till early 2013. Newly remodeled "Valentio's retreat was once the "early days" home of the iconic Kris Kristofferson. It is loaded with all the comforts of home and some extras! The decor celebrates the spirit of Nashville with music business memorabilia that is from the owners Jay and Dana's personal collection. It is 13 miles from downtown Nashville. This is a peaceful place for a relaxing get away. It is NOT A PARTY HOUSE.

This place is the perfect little getaway when you want peace, quiet and a visit with Mother Nature. Great rolling hills, scenic views, cozy little lake and the cutest donkeys! The cottage is the perfect size for a couple looking for some quite time away. Full kitchen. Roomy bathroom and a full size master suite. None of the cottage seems neglected or out of date. The owners take great care of this property and we would gladly stay there again and again.

A wonderful place to stay with just the right amount of country and city comforts! Jay and Dana are marvelous hosts who really know how to do this right! Spotless and welcoming - this is definitely a getaway that will be remembered and repeated! We miss their miniature donkeys, too- they're so cute! Goodlettsville is a sweet town brimming with friendly people and fun places to go- like Tara's Antiques! Just a heartbeat away is Nashville - and the mixture of c & c is perfect. We joined Jay for a recording session and a gig the following day- it was awesome. Don't hesitate to book the Beautiful VALENTINO'S RETREAT - you'll be so glad you did!

What a gem! This very clean, modern and private cottage on a sweeping green hillside was the perfect peaceful retreat from the everyday hustle. We stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area and plan to book all our future trips here. Jay and Dana are such gracious hosts, always available for any questions about the property or the area. Jay offered to give us a tour of his studio, which we will look forward to on our next trip! The photos are true to the property. Each room is contemporary, cozy and clean and offers all the comforts of home. Each morning, we opened the patio door in our bedroom to watch the sunrise over the misty purple and white flowers on the hillside, sometimes dotted with grazing cattle. We loved jogging the 2 mile loop at Moss-Wright Park just minutes down the road. The bed is very comfortable for a good night's sleep, and the blender is powerful enough to make our usual breakfast smoothies. We appreciated the books, games and movies provided for an early night in, and some local guides to discover the area's best waterfalls, music venues and interesting facts. The location is convenient enough to run to the store or hop on the highway to go downtown, but secluded enough to immerse ourselves in some peace and quiet. We also loved greeting the miniature donkeys on our trips out and spotting hawks and wild turkeys on the farm. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay, we already miss it! We look forward to our next visit and highly recommend staying here for a peaceful getaway.

The description of Valentino's Retreat was spot on, as were the 5 star reviews. Though we didn't arrive until 900pm, Jay was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated -- many details have been included. There is a Keurig with a nice variety of coffee. Everything you need to cook is in the kitchen. The bed was a memory foam mattress that was very comfortable. Large Closet/plenty of drawer space. Great bathroom/with a washer/dryer. There is a wrap around deck to sit outside and enjoy the view which is lovely. The house is tucked in the middle of 60+ acres. Jay was helpful offering restaurant suggestions and directions to park. Will definitely stay there again.

What an amazing first Airbnb experience. Jay and Dana were the most amazing hosts, and Valentino's Retreat was an unforgettable experience! The entire setting is so warm and inviting, with lots of small details that made for such a comfortable and relaxing stay. The cottage is so beautifully and tastefully decorated with lots of Nashville's history. We were so glad we chose to stay here and hope to return in the future. The attention to detail, the musical history, the wonderful hosts, everything was simply perfect. Valentino's Retreat is close enough to the city yet far away enough from the hustle and bustle. Thank you so much Jay and Dana for your impeccable hospitality and sharing Valentino's Retreat with us!

I have lived in Goodlettsville Tn. for many years and can't wait to share the charm of this quaint town with you. My husband Jay and I have made our living in the music business and through the years have done a lot of traveling. We have brought together some of our best experiences from our travel and incorporated them into our vacation rental "Valentino's Retreat" and are now offering it to you. We can't wait to meet you and give you our twist on the Nashville experience.
