Welcome to White’s Room & Board!


I have a huge passion for creating unique and memorable escapes at historic TN properties that ultimately serve to inspire you and yours. I hope to welcome songwriters searching for a creative getaway, families and couples craving quiet and restorative time, artists needing new inspirations, children full of curiosity, and anyone wanting to sit inside a warm, curated and welcoming space. Come visit and find a little peace, quiet and clarity from the daily grind!

My grandparents, Warren and June White, were incredibly loving and welcoming to all who walked through their doors. They were gifted at providing an experience for every one who stayed with them at their home. Nothing fancy-just love and care and attention to detail in an extraordinary way. There were so many memories made there with not much else than food, family, friends, and laughter. I have a passion for creating vacation experiences that reflect on a simpler time. I will never forget the long lazy days on their modest Louisiana farm.

I have a passion for all things old when it comes to houses!

Whether it be a 150 year old farmhouse out in the country that is on the verge of getting torn down or a victorian in the heart of town, I just adore walls and rooms that are brimming with stories. Brimming with happiness and tragedy, laughter and tears, and generations who loved and lost and lived there.

If only every house came with a letter from each of its owners, I actually wrote a letter to my last home and explained our renovation process and our life there. Maybe someone in 100 years will find it fascinating, that is my hope at least!


All properties include:


Firepit for s’mores and gathering

Soaking tub to drown away stress

Gourmet kitchen and appliances to feed your inner Julia Child

Luxury linens for the ultimate in relaxation

Gibson guitars for the songwriter in you

Harry Barker dog beds for your furry friend

Chris Coleman artwork (my husband is insanely talented!)

Cozy fireplaces

Howdy doormats, curated coffee table books, stemless wine glasses and other best-selling items from my general store White’s Mercantile


I hope you will make truly amazing memories here that will stay close to your heart…
