CROSSO HITS Two vacation rentals that are a little bit country and a whole lot of style. WRITTEN BY DARREN ELMS

WHAT: Buffalo Soul WHERE: Nashville, Tennessee WHY: In a city built on the shoulders of singers and songwriters, this home was originally a historic bedand-breakfast. The property recently changed hands and the new owners are renting it as an entire home. Originally built in 1937, the four-bedroom, five-bath structure features a limestone façade, Tudor architecture and multiple private spaces designed for private collaboration and creativity. Buffalo Soul is more than just a place to stay—it’s a place to create, connect and experience what gives Nashville the name “Music City.” The design pays homage to cofounder and ACMnominated recording artist JT Hodges’ parents—a Julliard-trained father and recording artist mother—who instilled his passion for music during his childhood. The home, which features a recording studio in the basement, is filled with musical touches including memorabilia, records and playlists on demand. The kitchen comes stocked with all kinds of goodies to enjoy during your stay. Artists and songwriters will enjoy a setting that gives them privacy and space to collaborate, complete with multiple creative spaces and a backyard with a oneof-a-kind, 50-foot, in-ground acoustic guitar fountain and fire pit. And as part of the Buffalo Soul experience, weekend guests have the opportunity to have in-home musical experiences with singer/songwriters curated by JT himself. HOW: buffalosoul.com
