Thistletop Inn - Goodlettsville, TN - Elysian Carriage House

Avalon House

Quaint Casita with Character and a View
1000 sq ft

Crafted from rough-hewn beams and antique tongue-and-groove heart pine flooring, this one-bedroom Carriage House is yet another one of Braxton Dixon’s creative designs. It was completed in the early seventies, prior to the construction of the Main House. It shares its eleven acres with the Inn and Highland House, while remaining completely independent and private. The Avalon House has served as a private retreat during the several phases of renovation the property has experienced. In 2018, it underwent another renovation, and boasts an updated beautiful and serene Guest House.  Bordered by 43 acres of woods and pasture, Avalon offers the peace and tranquility that makes staying here unforgettable.
