I would go with The Hermitage. There will be no nicer acoomdation in Nashville, and any B&B will not be as well-located near downtown attractions.

We frequently drive to DC from Nashville, we like to have a short day on the second day so we push through to Charlottesville, VA on the first. It is an 8 to 9 hour drive, but it is a nice city and there are a couple of nice inns. Other choices closer to Nashville would be Bristol on the TN/VA border or Staunton, VA. Both are smallish towns.

I second Nash Perm. Stop at Clifton Inn in Charlottesville for the night.

Clifton Inn @ 1296 Clifton Inn Drive, Charlottesville, VA 434 - 971 - 1800.

I like the Hermitage but the Hutton is nice too. It's just E of Vanderbilt and just W of downtown. Enjoy your trip.

Hutton Hotel @ 1808 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 615 - 340 - 9333.

Consider a trip up # 61 through Mississippi. Stop in historic Natchez and Vicksburg. Visit the antebellum homes and National Military Park. Stop in Clarksdale for blues and BBQ.

Thanks so much for everyones help,we have booked The Hermitage.Thanks Axle for your tip to drive up #61,it will probably take longer that way but looks more interesting. We might try to make it as far as Charlottesville ,having a shorter trip the second day sounds wise.
