Welcome to Draper’s Cottage – a wonderland for musicians and vintage lovers in the heart of East Nashville. Built by Mr. Draper in 1912 for his family, this historic home has only seen three owners in one hundred years! Current owner, songwriter and Appalachian Folk musician Jeni Hankins, shuttles between Nashville and London, and welcomes you to her home while she’s away.

The space
Ten minutes from downtown, steps away from East Nashville’s fab Five Points shopping and dining district, Draper’s Cottage combines a vintage guest experience with all that you want to hear, see, and do in Nashville. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter, Draper’s Cottage is within a 10 to 20 minute walk to grocery stores, post office, bank, eateries, public library, vintage and record shops, salons, gift shops, and even a big art supply shop. It’s a super walkable neighborhood.

You’ll find all of the modern amenities like Fiber internet, a Smart Vizio TV, etc. But you’ll also feel like you’ve traveled back in time in this curated home. Soak in the history while you play Jeni’s piano, guitars, banjo, and mandolin. Have your own jam session on the old-fashioned porch where there are plenty of chairs and spots for drinks! Set up a photo shoot on the Eastlake sofa, in the cowboy rocker, or in the clawfoot tub. Jeni’s front porch has been the set for many a photo shoot! Sit back and watch a movie or listen to music. Jeni has everything from a Columbia Grafonola to iHeart Radio, from VHS to Chromecast. Her house is full of vinyl records, DVDs, tapes, CDs, etc. Browse Jeni’s library – everything from Dickens to Marilyn Monroe on her bookshelves, including a full set of The Oxford English Dictionary.

Confident stitchers are invited to use Jeni’s fully working Singer 201 electric in its sewing table and a Singer hand-crank machine. Paper, pens, pencils, scissors, tape, and a new wireless printer/copier/scanner, too, for projects. Write a song, write a novel, read, sew, or just sit on the porch and watch the house sparrows and eastern cottontail rabbits.

Where you’ll be

Nashville, Tennessee, United States

This neighborhood is QUIET, so you’ll have plenty of calm, but if you’re looking for bright neon lights, there are four buses that take you directly from Jeni’s street to downtown in ten minutes. Not a fan of the bus? Save on parking costs downtown and grab a quick ride with Uber or Lyft. Want some energy closer to the house? How about Five Points which is only four blocks away! It’s home to bars, restaurants, and the famous Five Spot music venue of the TV series Nashville. Jeni has spent the last twelve years of her life touring and it’s her aim to make a space for you in her home that will feel just as nice as her favorite places to stay.
