Dear Ellen,
Bryan hall and Vince Gill Here's the photo of Vince Gill and myself as promised from the night we saw the Time Jumpers.
We want to thank you so much for telling us to go to the 3rd & Lindsley Club. We had a fantastic evening all because of your recommendation.
Hope you are well and we very much look forward to seeing you again when we return to Nashville in the future.

Kind regards,

When we booked our reservation, I sensed your charming personality! Upon arrival, you confirmed our theory. Your New York-Southern personality sparkles with a warm welcome. Thank you for your hospitality. Your suggestions for directions and restaurants were wonderful. As I enjoy my new treasures from Franklin, it will always remind me of you and our trip to Nashville. The Big Bungalow has unique charm, starting with you. The house is decorated uniquely with an artistic style and flare of its own. Your arrangements with the eclectic pieces of furniture and knick knacks keep eyes exploring the room. Thanks for the memories.

Stephen & Jeanne

Ellen, Thank you for the great time. We had great suggestions from you. You surely are a wonderful host. Massages were great and the style of home and hospitality is superb. We'll be back.

Jon & Caren

I felt welcome the minute I walked in...asked how far to a liquor thing I know we are in your car and on our way! Now that's more like a great friend! Thank you for providing the perfect alternative to a hotel!


Ellen, our very sincere thanks for your hospitality. You made us so welcome, and your breakfasts are superb! You have a fascinating home with interesting objets d'art all over the place! You are an excellent example of why we much prefer staying in "B&B's" rather than in impersonal hotels.
