Similar in atmosphere and physically close to Donelson, the area known as Hermitage shares the advantage of having the Stones and Cumberland Rivers along its boundaries. Stones River separates the charming Hermitage neighborhoods from downtown Nashville. Claiming an identity and flavor of its own, Hermitage is known as an historical treasure house, featuring a Confederate cemetery and The Hermitage, former U.S. President Andrew Jackson’s mansion. Both Andrew and his wife were buried on these grounds. The lush greens, lavish gardens, and luxurious amenities of private clubs and golf courses grace the neighborhood, while J. Percy Priest Reservoir offers water sports and boating close to home.
