If I had to sum up this place in short; Overpriced, dirty, neighbors had bars on the windows, very small & cold room, zero attention to details and lots of talk of how he'll be our personal concierge. We do not expect special treatment, just a fair product or service as paid for & advertised. We've stayed in B&Bs for years and I've never written a bad review until now. Upon arrival Richard said "Never use the front or side door . . . a guest left & forgot to lock the door and we found a homeless man inside." The entrance guests use, was the converted garage, complete with gas fireplace, filthy windows and a TV that to change the channel, you had to go up the stairs to the kitchen & change the channel on that TV. We arrived at the stated time and he immediately took us up to the room which he said "No one has been here for a week, so I need to vacuum it". The hair ball in the bathtub was an instant turnoff. He advertises "Claw foot shower/leg tub", what he doesn't say is the finish has worn off & repaired with spray paint and the wallpaper is peeling on every wall. Warning! Do not turn on the fan in this room, the dirt caked on the blades and the doorways is what you'd expect in an Out of Order bathroom at a single pump truck stop. The only heat in the room was an electric radiator type, not what you'd expect for $300 a night. We have returned repeatedly to most every B&B we've stayed, even the inexperienced Innkeepers were gracious and had very clean homes. By any stretch this place could never be called clean. As luck would have it, we had a real emergency that demanded we return home, Richard was kind enough to charge a $50 penalty for leaving by noon. Then when I sent an email suggesting it might have been an honest error, he asked that I call him, when I did he called me a creep and hung up. So much for honest graciousness.

Response from The Timothy Demonbreun House, Owner at The Timothy Demonbreun House
Responded 30 Dec 2020
This gentleman really sets the bar for being a jerk and a loser. He makes a 4 day reservation a month and then two hours post checkout time which is 10 am on the second day, needs to check out with no notice. As most B&B's we do have a 5 day cancellation notice which he acted like did not apply to him. But in the spirit of Christmas I was happy to give him a full refund but did retain $50 of his deposit for checking out to hours late. You would think he would appreciate my concession. But then "The Jerk" writes this fictional short story after calling me and demanding I send him a check for $50. This is the best laugh I have had in 2020 and want to thank him for never attempting to stay here in the future: I would not even allow him to stay in the yard.

Amazing stay! Wish I could give 6 stars. Richard is amazing and so friendly. He goes above and beyond. Also quite the chef. Breakfast is served with fresh eggs from the chickens in the back of the house. Absolutely will visit again!

We spent 5 nights at the Timothy Demonbreun House for our honeymoon and would have stayed 7 if the other nights weren't already booked by other guests. Richard, the host, manager, and owner is the great grandchild of the namesake and famed Timothy Demonbreun, whom even a main road in Nashville is named after. Richard was great and took phenomenal care of us. He takes this B&B to heart. It's like his baby. He makes fresh to order breakfasts and goes so far as raising the chickens there that provide the eggs. We will definitely stay there again when we return again to Nashville. We reside in Texas.

We visited Music City for our babymoon and decided to stay at this B&B because of the reviews and boy did it deliver on all fronts. The home is lovely and Richard was the icing on the cake. He makes you feel like you're a part of the family and is just a wonderful host and cook! The breakfast was to die for every morning and he would offer great recommendations for things to do or where to eat. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Trying to find a place to stay in Nashville during Covid-19 was not easy...However discovering the Timothy Demonbreun House was fantastic. We stayed 3 nights in the game room. A beautiful room with a fantastic sleep number bed, it’s own a/c and a pool table which has plenty of space in this huge room. The pool is great. My husband and I stayed one day just reading and swimming. The inn is super clean. The outstanding feature is the owner, Richard. He cannot do enough to make your stay comfortable and easy. Made to order breakfasts of whatever you want. A beautiful dining room with lots of socially distanced tables. We found a home away from home. Don’t hesitate if thinking of coming to Nashville. You have found the perfect getaway!

We got Richard's undivided attention during our stay and it was delightful. He provided custom hearty breakfasts and engaging conversation. The old house is charming with an interesting history. Our room could have used a good dusting and the house needs some more attention to maintenance, but it was a very good experience.

Thank you for the review and I am sorry that you did not share your concerns while here relative to maintenance. Not sure what that might be and we will work harder in an effort to make sure our "dusting" passes the white glove test!!

Lovely historic home and gracious hospitality from the owner, Richard. This B&B will exceed your expectations, perfectly plans to meet all of your needs and requests. This is a spot that you can enjoy as your own home. Made to order breakfasts and any other ideas for family dinner or restaurant and touring suggestions are accommodated. You can look at other spots but this is the place, don't miss the TD House is you are visiting Nashville. Also, can accommodate special family events. Highly recommend, and you will want to return again.

The owner of this house Richard can not do enough for you. He is very welcoming and helpful with advice. He cooks a superb breakfast - excellent accomodation spotlessly clean and inviting throughout. The history of this house and Richard Demonbreun ancestors is well worth looking up. If you are in Nashville and want the the very best a B&B can offer - Stay here!

We were in Nashville in October for my son's wedding. I checked out a number of places-bars, hotel, restaurants-and none of them matched in terms of affordability, access and atmosphere like the TD House. It is a beautifully maintained historic home in a residential neighborhood about 2 miles from downtown. After the craziness of downtown, it was so serene and intimate. We had a party of 35 but could easily have accommodated 50.The food was home cooked, delicious and ample. We ordered the beverages that we wanted and Richard bought them at cost. He also set up a screen, projector and a microphone for speeches. Every member of our party raved about what an appropriate location we choose. Since it is a residential neighborhood, if your guests drive, there is a valet parking fee. Instead, we got a mini bus to pick us up from the hotel and others ubered-very convenient.
