“An Idyllic Retreat”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Other reviews of Valentinos say it all. A truly wonderful place owned by two of the nicest people it has been my privilege to meet.. Both Dana and Jay went out of their way to ensure our stay was a memorable one. Valentinos is extremely well set out to a very high standard and like Chateau on the Row (which they also own) is decorated with just the right amount of music memorabilia to remind you of your hosts achievements.
Location is great and very easy to travel to and from Nashville and the surrounding area.There is a lot to do in and around this part of Tennessee but to be honest when you get to Valentinos you just want to kick back, get that Country music n the radio and chill.

“A beautiful way to visit Nashville!”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Dana and Jay besides being two of the nicest and most generous hosts offer a fantastic country setting to enjoy Nashville from. After a night of crazy on Broadway - nothing better than to sit on the back deck and strum you guitar to the birds, and turkeys, and Maggie and Jill the mini-donkeys. Found the location ideal to get in and out of the city. Best of both worlds - enjoy the bustle of downtown and the serenity of Tennessee country. What better way to spend time in Nashville than that. Top it off, your host is a Gold Record recording artist! Make sure to take up Jay on a visit to the recording studio on Music Row. Can't say enough good things about our stay. Thank you Dana and Jay and will be back when we hit Nashville again.

“The perfect Nashville getaway”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We absolutely loved this place! Great location to retreat back to after watching music in the city all day. Some amazing restaurants very close by that Jay recommended. The property is gorgeous, the bed is extremely comfortable and the whole place is decorated perfectly with class and style, yet still super cozy. It smelled amazing too, when we walked in my nose was doing a happy dance because it smelled so lovely inside. We can't wait to go back!!!

“Magical”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I spent two nights at Valentino as part of a road trip to Texas. If you don't want to read any further the bottom line is it is a wonderful property. Here are the highlights:
Beautiful house that is decorated to 5 star standards. The house truly is set up like the owners would live there rather than as a rental.
Environment is great with a beautiful ranch or farmette type location. Wrap around porch that my wife and I sat on at night watching the fireflies and skyline of downtown Nashville on a full moon night.
All the amenities in the house were available and of a high standard.
Owners were very responsive and always willing to help with suggestions for local restaurants and attractions.
Drive to downtown (Broadway Street) was an easy 19 minutes with minimal traffic. Great location to access most anything in Nashville (included 12 minutes to the Grand Ole Opry).
Maybe one of the highest compliments we can give is that we would stay there just to enjoy the house and environment. Valentino is almost a destination on to itself. Highest recommendation given.

“You Won't Want To Leave!”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Valentino's Retreat for 3 nights back in April, and absolutely loved it. We were on an 8 week road trip across the USA, and this was by far the best place we stayed. We have stayed in similar places since the trip ended too, and nothing even comes close. The house was charming and had everything you could need, just like at home. It was perfect for us as our trip was quite tiring with a lot of driving, and it gave us the R&R we needed at that point in the trip. As well as being a lovely and quiet spot, there were so many features to enjoy such as the great big deck to sit out on with sweeping views, the big comfy bed and the embroidered towels. Dana and Jay were delightful when we met them on our final day before we departed, we had a great chat and they helped us print off some documents we needed. We hope that we can return one day and have been telling all of our friends to visit!

“Valentino's, is the ultimate vacation cottage.”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My, husband and I stayed six nights at Valentino's.
We, were visiting Nashville, but we're not into the night scene.
We, like to sightsee during the day and have a peaceful place to relax in the evening.
Valentino's retreat, fit the bill for us.
A lovely cottage on a farm, about 25 minutes from downtown Nashville.
Everything was very clean and anything you could need, is in the cottage.
The decor is fun, with lots of music memorabilia.
We, would definitely return again.
Thank you, Dana and Jay, for offering Valentino's, as a rental.

“Perfect place to come back to at the end of the day”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

In planning our first trip ever to Nashville, looking for lodging in Nashville was frustrating. Staying downtown was expensive. If you wanted to venture away from downtown, we would need a rental car, and that would result in parking fees at downtown hotels of $25+ per day! While researching our options on TripAdvisor, I came across this little gem in the country but not in the country. My wife was instantly all in on the idea. She has always wanted to live on a farm and loves farm animals. Seeing they had donkeys she could feed really got her even more excited! Read all of the positive reviews from others who had stayed there and decided that doing something different would make our trip even more exciting. Best. Decision. EVER! This little place is exactly as the photos depict it. Very clean and comfortable and the perfect place to come back to after a busy day sight-seeing. You can sit on the huge deck in the evening and watch the lights of Goodlettsville below and in the distance. Have a drink and relax! Not really out in the "country" as it is actually in the city limits of Goodlettsville, but it feels like it since it is situated well off of a roadway that did not appear to have much traffic anyway. Nice, quiet, and great view of the countryside. It's an easy drive of just about 20-25 minutes to downtown Nashville, even less to the Grand Ole Opry, Opry Mills Mall, and the massive Gaylord Opryland Resort & Hotel which is an attraction in itself! I can't say enough about how perfect this place was/is for a couple that wants to see the sights but also be able to get away and relax at the end of the day. You just have to experience it for yourself. And to top it off, the owners are awesome. Jay and Dana live in a separate house on the farm but you would never know it - they don't o anything that would cause you to feel like you were being "watched" or scrutinized. In fact, it's just the opposite. Jay is very friendly and outgoing and lets you know that he is there if you need anything, but ONLY if you need something. He makes it clear you are free to call him for anything, whether it be something you find lacking in the house or just need advice on the best eating places or places to visit you would otherwise not be aware of. And you are always welcome to tour his music studio in Nashville for a private tour. By the time you leave, you really fell like you made a new friend, even though you didn't get to visit with him all that much. Regrettably, we did not get to meet Dana. But it is obvious that she is an amazing talent just by examining the music industry related items in the house. You can tell how proud Jay is of her also when he shares information on her career to you. Hopefully we can return and get to meet her next time. Would I recommend this vacation rental to a friend? ABSOLUTELY! I already have. To several friends actually! Now they also want to take a trip to Nashville. But they want to stay at Valentino's Retreat if they do!
