If you are ever passing through Nashville, set aside a night to stay at the Fox House, one of the region’s most unique accommodations. Bathed in light and set in a two acre plot of woods, it is a tiny getaway you will never forget.
As you can see, the house is not a tree house in the classic sense of sitting up in the treetops, but it is a tree house. The trees help to support its design, integrating it with its surroundings. Warm wood tones and string lights create an inviting atmosphere. The windows can be opened to let in fresh air from all sides.
When Emily and Sloane Southard got into constructing the guest house, they had some experience from Sloane’s window renovation business (thus why the windows in this home are so phenomenally stylish). But they were unprepared for some of the other challenges of construction, to the point where at one point they had to tear down the structure and start all over.
Was it worth it? Absolutely.
The bedroom features a comfortable full size bed with a romantic canopy.
The living area is surprisingly open and roomy considering the home’s small profile and square footage. The warm natural tones from the exterior continue in the interior. Tans and pale greens bring the “forest” theme indoors.
Here is another look at the bedroom. Both the walls you see here are mainly windows, letting in lots of light and offering some amazing views of the surrounding foliage.
The sofa is a vintage piece from the 1950s. The blue chest which is serving as a table here brings some contrast to the color scheme.
While the living area and bedroom are beautiful, there is no kitchen in the house. There is however a hot plate and a kettle. Guests who stay here are offered an assortment of tea and coffee.
There is also no bathroom in the guest house, but there is one in the main house, which is located 40 yards away. There is a private entrance to the bathroom for guests to use. Parking is located off-street, and guests are provided with fresh sheets and towels when they arrive for their stay. While mosquitoes are problematic in the area, the yard is sprayed with
natural oils twice a month to keep them at bay. Staying here, guests can expect to see birds, squirrels, and deer frolicking around the house.
In this shot, we have a unique view looking into the bedroom from outside through the open door. I love this photo, because it really emphasizes the way that indoors and outdoors blend together in the construction—thanks again to Sloane’s talent with windows and doors.
Shelves constructed right into the walls provide for a decorative effect without intruding on the limited space available.
Such an airy, breathtakingly beautiful room! Spending just one night here wouldn’t be enough.
Speaking of which, you can reserve your stay at The Fox House on AirBnB right here. As of the time of this writing, Sloane and Emily are only charging $115 a night to stay in their light-filled imaginative tree house. That is an amazing deal to stay in one of the most unique accommodations in the Nashville area!
