    They will do their best to satisfy your dietary needs for breakfast. Love that they have chickens and I'm a very woodsy area. They have their dogs under control. Decent distance from downtown Nashville.

    I think dogs are allowed in any room. There is an extra fee of $25 to $35 per night for a pet. Might want to verify with Jim Farkas, the innkeeper
