Scarritt-Bennett Center

1008 19th Avenue South

Scarritt-Bennett is a non-profit education, retreat and conference center, located in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, on ten tree-filled acres. The ten buildings, constructed of crab orchard stone in collegiate gothic architectural style, give the grounds a peaceful, nurturing atmosphere. The compact setting means that it’s a short walk to well-equipped meeting rooms, delicious meals, and restful sleeping rooms.

The peaceful setting belies the busy schedule of meetings, programs, and educational opportunities available here. The gothic chapel is a popular place for the 100+ weddings held there each year.

The Center has strong commitment to promoting racial equality, cross-cultural understanding, the empowerment of women and spiritual renewal. Your support helps us to offer programs that continue this mission

Nice, not too expensive place to stay. It is not a hotel and doesn't have the perks of a hotel room. The rooms are small with only a bed, desk, chair, and rack to hang clothes. The bathroom is shared between two rooms which is kinda inconvenient. But it was perfect since I was there for a conference and didn't spend too much time in the room. It is in walking distance of Vanderbilt University and in a really nice area of Nashville. Restaurants and shops are a 15 minute walk or less. The campus is beautiful.

Great, historical site with beautiful landscaping. Classrooms can be too hot or cold, depending on the season.
