Hermitage, Tennessee is an increasingly well-known section of Nashville that was named after the large and splendid home of President Andrew Jackson which he called “The Hermitage.” That nationally historic home is right next door to the present –day Hermitage community, which was still basically rural farmland just 30 or 40 years ago. But as Nashville grew and expanded, so did Hermitage, and these days it is the location of many vibrant residential neighborhoods as well as a thriving business district.
From the Hermitage you have fast and easy access to all of the many sites, amenities, and destinations that the Greater Nashville area has to offer. Those include great schools and universities, employment opportunities, and the fantastic world-class shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and entertainment venues that make Nashville so famous and popular.
Hermitage still boasts lots of local and nearby outdoor recreational opportunities, though, so you have urban access but are also close to nature. That’s thanks to the proximity of Hermitage to a number of beautiful parks, golf courses, marinas, fishing and boating spots, and trails for walking, hiking, or cycling. One of the most popular of those destinations is also one of the closest – nearby Percy Priest Lake. The lake is 42 mile long and covers more than 14,000 acres, making it a wonderful place for the whole family to enjoy the long Nashville summers.
From the community of Hermitage you can also be within driving distance of much of the continental United States. Hermitage is also one of the train stops along the Music City Star commuter rail service, and is just minutes from Nashville International Airport which offers dozens of flights each day to put you anywhere in the world you want to be. Hermitage is divided from the adjacent suburb of Donelson by the Stone's River. (Donelson is a popular Nashville suburb named after Andrew Jackson's father-in-law, John Donelson, and home to the Nashville International Airport). Hermitage and Donelson share a Chamber of Commerce. They also team-up together every year for the Christmas parade!
