Originally built in 1930, this little red farmhouse is a short walk from downtown Franklin. A complete renovation includes an addition that has expanded the square footage to 2,300 offering three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Behind the farmhouse is an additional apartment, “the little Boho carriage house” which can accommodate four people. Plenty of space for a large family or a group of friends.

Light and airy, the bungalow blends rustic elements like the original brick fireplace found in the living room and classic farmhouse wood plank accents. Modern furnishings and gorgeous bedding add to the comfort. The bathrooms are equipped with all amenities. There’s plenty of room for a relaxing game night after a casual dinner and stroll around town.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, with organic coffee and everything needed to prepare a light breakfast before exploring the historic area where the Airbnb is located.

This little cottage is stocked with everything needed for a romantic weekend away from the city. Residing in the countryside near Leiper’s Fork, host Stephanie makes every stay personal. It is a peaceful and desirable alternative to a hectic life. Located approximately eight miles from downtown Franklin, it is less than three miles from Puckett’s and Leiper’s Fork Village.

Adirondack chairs are found on the back patio, and more are located next to the outdoor fire pit where delicious s’mores can be made on a cool summer evening. The interior of this cottage is a study in rustic chic style, with raw wooden floors, whitewashed paneling and an iron bed. Attention to detail makes for a memorable stay, including soft linens and fireflies dancing around the trees.

“Fork of the South is hands down one of my favorite places to stay,” said one reviewer. “There are countless special touches, a bed I could sleep in all day, and delicious wine! I may even have left with some decoration ideas! Great location and close to the lovely shops and restaurants of Leipers Fork. Can’t say enough about Fork of the South!! “

Natchez Trace Cottage

Located just off the Nashville entrance to the Natchez Trace Parkway on Hwy 100, hidden behind ivy vines and nestled in the hills is Natchez Trace Cottage. It is a perfect place to access the boardwalk and take beautiful hikes along the paths of the region.

It is an old farm which has been transformed into a warm and friendly gîte. Even though the house is right on the 100 freeway, it seems tucked away thanks to a nice shield of carefully planted trees. There’s even space to sit in the back yard and have a glass of wine or coffee.

The exterior is whitewashed over the original rebate with two green rockers sitting on the small porch. Inside this vintage cottage there is warmth and cosiness, character and many special touches including a dart board. It feels like a family cabin in the woods with one bedroom paneled in raw wood planks and the other has the original planks painted white. The dining table is straight out of an old drive-in, but given a retro touch-up. Artwork comes from local artists.

It’s the perfect distance from town to relax, while still being close enough to grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping. The location is in a scenic area just down the street from the Loveless Cafe.

“What a beautiful place,” said one reviewer. “The cottage was brimming with character and warmth, and it was so peaceful and cosy. We loved the location. We’ll take the quiet Nachez Trace neighborhood over the loud and busy city every time.”
