We stayed in one of the older and smaller units w/o central heat, There were two space heaters that met our needs. The room was very clean and comfortable equipped with a coffee maker, small refrigerator and microwave. There was only instant coffee provided when we arrived late so no coffee for us in the morning. But we asked and...

We have stayed several times at Iris Garden Cottages. All of the Cottages are very nice, clean and Matt and Amy are very kind and helpful. They are there for everything that you need. When you go inside the cottages it is so peaceful and relaxing. You do not hear any of the noise outside. We love being able to...

We stayed in one of the new units. Everything was super clean and neat upon our arrival. Comfortable bed and inviting decor. The property managers were very friendly and were prompt in providing anything we needed. We like to stay here because it is within walking distance to everything. We would call the new unit "The Nashville Niche." Rikke and...

Cabins were clean and neat. It is located right downtown for easy access to all the shops and restaurants. Host was very helpful and attentive. This is not a fancy Hotel but a very comfortable place to stay. We liked the homey feel. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in the new unit, Unit 9. We absolutely loved the location and would most defiantly stay again. We feel this unit should be named "The Front Porch of Nashville" for this very reason. Other suggestions we came up with are "Copperhead Cottage", "Iris Garden Front Porch" and "The Love Nest" or "The Corner Cottage"

Very quaint and comfortable located right in downtown Nashville IN. Within walking distance of everything downtown. Very economical. Individual cottages are the only place we would stay when we come back to Nashville.

My wife and I have been coming to Nashville for years, and Iris Gardens has been our "go to" place since we first stayed there thirteen years ago. The location is perfect - right in the middle of downtown - making for an easy walk to all the shops, restaurants and attractions. Of course, it also makes for an easy...

You know what? I love it when anyone takes the time to grace us with a TripAdvisor comment, but when someone professes us to be the "BEST" in a town that has all that Nashville's little village has to offer,.... well,... that just certainly make my day. Your words are kind and they tell us that we are achieving our...

This was my second time staying at Iris Garden. My sister is from the U.P. and had never been to Nashville and I wanted her to be right in the middle of it. Matt and Amy Gray are wonderful hosts. I'm not a fan of the impersonal atmosphere of chain hotels so Iris Garden is perfect if you want a...

THANKS! SO DO WE!!! We really do love what we do, and it's not because cleaning rooms has been our lifelong dream ;) ,... it's because of our guests like you. You are always welcome here and we'll always endeavor to make your stay a good one. Matt and Amy

Way over priced!!!! Small not that clean no kind of room service. "Couples Cottage" with a full sized mattress with room for a king sized???? A tiny shower near dark in the bathroom. A TV smaller than my laptop. I hope they don't spend what I gave them all at once.
