Ashley, her husband (and Mama Says Namaste podcast co-host), three unschooling daughters and dog are RVing the States full-time. They focus on authenticity, awareness, and embracing love in the present moment.

Ashley takes families from surviving to thriving by helping them uncover how "the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us". She guides parents through identifying their strengths - and also their triggers - to live with intention and not simply reaction to the chaos of an ever-growing family. Through her podcast, blogging, coaching and personality "snapshots", she provides tools and action steps to aid families in creating a life they love to come home to. She also is a "start here" coach for families looking to travel full-time and helping them create a game plan that allows every family member to thrive.

Our sweet 1450 sq. ft. home is perfect for vacation and so convenient for business! Only 14 min. from downtown Nashville and 21 min. from Franklin. Enjoy a nice open kitchen/dining room complete with an outdoor dining experience in a gorgeous backyard!

More information
The space

We are an unschooling family with a backyard that is just teeming with resources for creative play. Grown-ups can lounge in cozy papasan chairs on the back porch, fans keep the bugs at bay, and landscaping of flowers and herbs are interspersed everywhere on the property, season permitting.

Crieve Hall is one of the top up-and-coming neighborhoods in all of Nashville, conveniently located right of I-65 and perfect for a quick commute to either downtown Nashville (14 min) or downtown Franklin (21 min….Cool Springs is even closer)!

Full of 50s and 60s ranch homes with big yards and old trees, it is a safe family environment with many original homeowners and new young families.

One bedroom consists of a bunk bed with a trundle to comfortably sleep three, another room is a loft bed, and the master has a KING – sweet! Even in a small home, six people can comfortably sleep in beds, and the backyard definitely gives you space to stretch.

We are listed as pet-friendly…AND, we know every pet and every family is different. Pets have to be approved and are not allowed on furniture – please let us know what furry friends you have and we will see what can be worked out!

The Nashville Zoo is only five minutes away and is a definite must-see. We are all about local businesses, Farmer’s Markets (there is one every Thursday in the summer right here in this neighborhood), tons of amazing parks, and the Ellington Agricultural Center within walking distance of our house. Perfect for a little hike, barefoot running, and tons of fun creek playing. If you’re a bit more ambitious, Radnor Lake is a good jog from our place and is a gorgeous area to get outdoors and soak in nature, while still being completely convenient and close to every amenity you need!

“Was fortunate enough to meet Ashley and Nathan quickly before they departed on their trip. They are lovely. Their neighbor Kirsten though was ready to help with any needs whatsoever, only a phone call away. As you pull into the house, the enormous, fenced-in backyard comes into view. it is complete with a fountain, gardens, trampoline, fort, separate sitting place with Adirondack chairs under a huge tree. Attached to the house, yet outside, is the magical room adorned with multiple string lights, the most enchanting chimes, hanging windows and art with plenty of extremely comfortable seating. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and their water system delicious!!! This is a house of love. Most of the art, if not all, is originally made in that house. The photography is spectacular (most likely done by family member). The master bedroom is deliciously comfortable and has easy access to the backyard. This is a fabulous house to come to if you have children or a pet. It is within 5-10 minutes of grocery stores, pharmacies and much much more. My only regret is not having spent an afternoon in their backyard with the family. I recommend this property highly, especially if you have kids!!!!!” – A wonderful house guest 🙂

Guest access

WiFi highspeed internet and office space in two rooms, bluetooth surround sound speakers in the living room, washer/dryer/clothesline, organic herbs straight from the yard, trampoline, kid’s fort (the “Haka Hooka Home”), fully fenced in back yard (animals considered on a case-by-case basis). We have had chickens for fresh eggs for our guests, but some sneaky raccoons had plans of their own. For now it’s an empty chicken coop that is also a perfect dog pen for any dogs that are fence-jumpers!

Interaction with guests

We are currently RVing the States full-time with our family, bouncing back in to Nashville with our travel trailer and otherwise renting it out through AirBnB. We are typically not around, but our housekeeper/manager is Sarah, and she literally lives right next door! We have great neighbors who keep an eye on things and are happy to welcome our guests – young children on either side love playmates!

Other things to note

We love our home and our town and we are eager to share it. We share our own adventures and lifestyle on our website, Mama Says Namaste. We are a resource for anyone who is looking to create a life full of connection and fun with their families. We also have a free webinar and even an online course called “90 Day Family Road Trip” 🙂

We have a few extra perks at our place. When you are there, we have a coupon deal with Lyft to help out with transportation – use the code Sweet321 to get $5 off your first 10 trips – that’s a $50 discount to get you around town without a taxi or your own car!
