FARMHOUSE IN THE FORK: LAKE, WATERFALL, FISHING ON 41 PRIVATE ACRES LEIPERS FORK

Franklin House Rental Photos and Description

house, 3 bedrooms+other(see description), 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6-10

Farmhouse in the Fork - a Shelter + Roost property.

The Farmhouse is located in a secluded setting in Leipers Fork, four miles from Historic Leipers Fork Village, twelve miles south of Franklin and thirty miles south of Nashville. The Natchez Trace Parkway is a little over a mile away and is perfect for hiking, biking, horseback riding and scenic drives.

Enjoy your own private retreat in a storybook setting with charm that never ends. Our beautiful home sits on forty-one secluded acres minutes from Historic Leipers Fork Village. This home is ideal for a romantic getaway, weekend with friends, escape for the whole family, artist / writer's retreat, special events and corporate retreats. Whatever that it may be that you are looking for, you'll most likely find it here.

Our five year old son, Wyatt loves to wake up early to see the family of river otters, catch frogs or go fishing in the pond, eat breakfast on the front porch, make s'mores over the crackling fire in the outdoor fireplace and play countless games of Uno and pool in the game room. My husband, Michael instantly fell in love with the beautiful views and the most amazing lightning bugs we have ever seen - hundreds that appear to be dancing all around you. I love waking up with a cup of tea on the front porch or in the sunroom and watching the catfish jump in the lake, lazy afternoons in the hammock - dozing off while reading a good book, eating dinner together outside on the back deck and listening to the banjo strum sound that the Green Frogs make.

Our home features an open living room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and a hand laid fireplace built from stones off the land. The kitchen has granite countertops, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and is stocked with everything you need, from a bottle opener to pots and pans, baking dishes to forks and knives. There is a game room with a pool table, television and a dartboard for endless entertainment as well as movies and board games. The sunroom and master bedroom also have televisions and DVD players. There are three spacious bedrooms in the house. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and has a king sized bed and walk-in closet. The other two rooms have queen size beds and are located on the second floor. An optional inflatable queen bed and two couches will allow for additional guests. Highchair and crib available upon request. The front porch has beautiful lake views and includes rocking chairs, a porch swing and an outdoor table and seating. There is a wood deck in the backyard with an equally beautiful view with a second hand laid fireplace built from stones off the land and a small kid's play structure. There is plenty of open space to play catch or toss the frisbee and a pond near the barn... the pictures say it all.

The Farmhouse truly has a character all it's own... a story to be told, memories to be made... a secluded retreat nestled amongst the trees with wild life aplenty. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

About Us: Shelter + Roost gives you the chance to enjoy Nashville, Franklin and Leiper's Fork, Tennessee while staying in one of our unique properties. Featuring the extra space and comforts of home, you can spread out, relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.

Shelter + Roost features five distinctive vacation rental properties, each offering something a little different—making it a lot easier to select a property that is right for you:

Farmhouse in the Fork: A little bit of country (41 acres to be exact) just off the beaten path. Fishing poles included.

Storybook Cottage: Hansel and Gretel could’ve lived here… really. And they would’ve loved the outdoor shower.

Jefferson House: A beautifully restored historic home, just walking distance to Main Street. This one belongs in a magazine. c.1900

Brigadoon: Imagine if Ralph Lauren had a yard sale and you’ll capture something of the essence of this dreamy place.

Leiper's Fork Inn: Two historic homes, rescued, moved, and restored were combined to create this charming property. This property is rented to one family/group at a time, not by individual rooms. Perfect for weddings and events.

And when it comes to taking care of your needs, we do everything we can to ensure your family can relax and enjoy the surroundings, worry-free. Each property is hand picked and personally owned and managed by our family so you can feel confident your stay will exceed expectations. If something comes up during your visit, one of us is always available to answer your questions or assist you. In fact, we pay attention to all the details so you don’t have to.

The properties of Shelter + Roost will bring you and your family an experience you’ll never forget.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We came to your beautiful city to see the women's final four and cheered them to their 9th NCAA championship. We thought that would be the highlight of our trip, but everyday kept getting better and better. The Grand Ole Opry, Music Hall of Fame, Loveless Cafe (best breakfast ever!), Puckett's, drinks at Rippy's, Where we saw Charlie Daniels just hanging out. What a delight it was to come home to the beautiful farmhouse where we relaxed and recounted the glories of our day. We spent the lst night sitting by the pond with a glass of wine wishing that it was just the beginning!

We believe in make believe. We love to live. We live to create. We believe family are the friends you choose. We like to think the more you push the elevator button the faster it comes. We love small towns. We still believe a handshake and a smile mean something. We prefer taking the scenic route. We laugh. We hug. We dream. We find inspiration everywhere. We collect moments. We under promise. We over deliver.

In the beginning of 2011, we stumbled upon Leiper's Fork by pure chance, it was supposed to be a stopover, a rest stop, on our way to the next destination. It's not everyday we're moved by a person, a place, or an entire town. But we were, and we listened. We spent a year looking at more than 50 homes across Leiper's Fork and Franklin, until we finally made an offer on what would eventually become 'Farmhouse in the Fork'. Since we still lived in California, we decided to make the house available to the occasional guest or short-term renter when we weren't there. Before we knew it people started renting the Farmhouse and they kept coming back. And when their friends and families started contacting us wanting the same experience, we knew we were doing something right. Before we knew it one property turned into two, two turned into four and now Shelter + Roost offers five distinct properties to choose from. Not just any homes, but ones we've spent months and even years searching for. Every property is a reflection of us, our personality, and the places we love to stay. They're home.

With two children and a family owned baby products company as our day job, people often ask us why we don't turn things over to a property manager. The reason? We truly enjoy the relationships we make with our guests. We're not a hotel, we've opened up our homes to you, for you, to enjoy with family and friends. Besides the late nights spent answering emails while the kids sleep or the hours upon hours we spend making sure everything's perfect for our guests, there's something so fulfilling about sharing our properties with others. It's the stories we hear from them, the memories they make and the time they share together in our homes that make us smile.

Perfection in Tennessee

  • 5 of 5
This property is simply amazing! I have travelled significantly worldwide and I can't think of anywhere I have stayed that has been this special or unique. My family stayed for 4 nights and they were terribly disappointed when we had to leave. Even the beds were super comfortable. There is plenty to do in Franklin, Leiper's Fork and downtown Nashville... as well as just hanging around the house. This home is beautiful, warm and cozy. The layout allows the entire family the ability to relax and unwind together. Everything we needed was available and the home is so organized everything was easy to find! The grounds are impeccably maintained and clean. Thank you so much for sharing your home and your hospitality! I will be back!

Perfect Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with this property the moment we drove in! The scenery was beautiful and the home was adorable. We loved the live music Puckett's Grocery had to offer which was only minutes away. We drove to Franklin and enjoyed the spectacular views along the way. House was clean and cozy! Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer and we would be happy to stay here again on our next TN visit! Amazing home and property!!!

We rented this for my husbands 30th birthday for a two day getaway and it was so wonderful! It was so peaceful and beautiful. We loved the quiet scenery and the house was beautiful. The front porch was our favorite with a big area to swing. Very impressed!

What a beautiful home and surroundings you find when you wind down the driveway. The home was spotless and extremely visitor friendly - snacks provided! The innkeeper was s available for any questions prior to our visit via e-mail, acting in a prompt manner. We understand this innkeeper has other rental homes which we are now anxious to visit. Don't overlook one of them when you plan your next getaway!

Leipers Fork / Nashville Vacation and Womens Final Four Basketball Tournament

  • 5 of 5
What a pleasant surprise as we drove down the driveway to "The Farmhouse" in the Fork. There were plenty of oooh's and ahhaa's from all of us. A wonderful place to stay if you are looking for some great relaxation and peace and quite while still wanting to do some site seeing. The place was just as described and well maintained. Beautiful kitchen and porches!! The husbands like to cook and grill so we were in our glory and the wives really enjoyed the porches. The owners were great to work with and followed up with us to be sure that all was fine after our arrival.
Since our primary purpose was to go the the "Final Four" in Nashville that took up the first part of our week stay. "GO UCONN HUSKIES" ! It was easy access to I 840 and I 65 and not that far from many of the places we wanted to see besides going to the Games. We spent some time in Liepers Fork - Puckett's Grocery is a must we enjoyed the food and the show. We missed Wyonna Judd by one day darn! The shops there are great to visit for adults. Went to "Loveless Cafe" for breakfast (a must) just up the road on rt. 100. We also visited several plantations and gardens between Franklin and Nashville.
The town of Franklin is close and we spent a day there - great shops and restaurants. Just plain fun to walk around in town. Everywhere we went was very enjoyable and everybody always cordial. Spent time in Nashville site seeing besides the games and the same goes for Nashville as for things to do and being a friendly city.
We do plan to come back to Tenn and the Nashville area. I would not hesitate having the chance to stay at "The Farmhouse in the Fork" again.
Sarah and family we sincerely enjoyed our stay and felt right at home - beautiful property.

Leipers Fork is one of those places where you feel instantly at home and don't want to leave. Stay long enough and you're bound to come across some of them who didn't: the Nashville Record Producer - now Grocer and owner of Puckett's, the Manhatten Mall Developer - now farmer, restauranteur and owner of Joe Natural's and the San Francisco Interior Design Firm Buyer - now Antique Dealer and owner of Serenite Maison.

We encourage you to explore and experience the charm and character of what is known as Leipers Fork.
