Franklin Barn Rental Photos and Description

Barn, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and relax in this beautiful country side where life is a little simpler, people are kinder and the grass truly is greener.

This barn loft apartment is an open floor plan with just over 700 square feet of room to enjoy. 'THERE IS NO KITCHEN'. Two (2) Queen size beds are available as well as (1) inflatable raised queen bed and a sofa to sleep on. The BATHROOM has a shower and no bathtub. There is a bean bag bed full size for children only. Large windows overlook the horse paddocks on both ends where you can watch our horses roam and relax in the sunshine.

Accommodations are comfortable and serene as the farm is located on a dead end street with little traffic. Restaurants are within a few minutes from the farm as well as shopping and entertainment. Stay put and relax or venture out into the County for sight seeing and adventure.

Visit our small village Leipers Fork and enjoy shopping at our antique stores, browse our art galleries where local artists are displayed and then dine in our cafe and restaurants. Enjoy live music every day but Monday at Pucketts Grocery or join us for one of our towns festivals or events. Thursday in Leipers is open mic night and creole shrimp boil, Friday and Saturday nights offer dinner and shows, reservations advised if possible.

The farm has horses and dogs roaming and greeting our guests. The horse barn has 4 stalls, a wash bay and tack room. Four paddocks hold the horses along with a full size dressage arena lit for night riding. We welcome overnight guests with their horses who are traveling.

You don't have to own or travel with your horse to stay. You are free to enjoy the sight of our little herd out in the fields. If you chose to you may have a private horseback riding lesson taught by Kirstin. She has been teaching adults and children to ride for over 10 years and is exceptional at helping those intimidated learn the love of horses.

Also provided by appointment is our personal growth/therapy sessions that use Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. We are trained and Internationally certified through EAGALA for this. You may read more information at our website provided on the first page.

About Kirstin Mason

Chose this area to raise my daughter because of the beauty of the land, kindness of residents and peaceful surroundings. Originally from the northeast settled in Tennessee back in the early 1980's because of the kindness of the people and the beauty of the land. Life long horse owner/lover who likes to share her sanctuary with others.

Providing a unique service to the middle Tennessee area of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is my honor. The only private practice in middle TN providing this service.

Kirstin Mason purchased this barn in 2002

Why Kirstin Mason chose Franklin

Quiet, serene, peaceful all while being in the great outdoors and close to a major city. Could not imagine living any other place because of the surroundings, the people and the weather. Hiking on the Natchez Trace is right around the corner from the farm.

What makes this barn unique

Having dogs and horses at your finger tips if wanted or just to view. If not you just enjoy your stay and ignore them. Though Avery (border collie) may ask you to play over and over again. Having coffee on the deck in the morning is a favorite pastime. Many enjoy the energy here as it is so serene.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful loft feels like home. I love laying my head down in the loft at this picturesque location The loft is spacious and full of comfortable furniture. And there are all kinds of little surprises - goodies, a place to leave your mark either in words or in pictures, and a precious border collie who walks you to your car. Love it! Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Janis, I am so glad you got to stay in the loft again on your recent artist trip to this area. It was so lucky I was available and I could welcome you again to the farm. The note you left was so lovely and I thank you for leaving your artwork on the chalkboard. Any time you come back to this area for painting or play Avery (border collie) and I will both welcome you back. Thanks. Kirstin

Coming Full Circle at Full Circle Farm

  • 5 of 5
We came to Leipers Fork for my husband to attend a woodcarver workshop. My family were born and raised in Leipers Fork( called Hillsboro then) so I drove around and visited family farms, cemetery and stores. Kirsten is a delightful lady and her barn loft was perfect for us. It was clean and comfortable and so peaceful. We loved looking at the horses grazing in the pastures and playing fetch with Avery (sweet border collie) . We will be back when we come to Leipers Fork again.

Quiet and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
The loft exceeded our expectations! The photos don't do this place justice! Everything was super clean, roomy and inviting.
It was just far enough from Leipers Fork to feel away from it all, but close enough to be there in just few minutes drive.
Kirstin was delightful and a very sweet hostess. She goes above and beyond to add special touches (Dove chocolate on the pillows, popcorn, tea and snacks on the bar, and pretty flowers on the porch)
This will be our first choice of places to stay in Leipers Fork. We had a great time. Thank you Kirstin!

traveling through

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed in the loft for 2 nights and loved it. I also had my dog who was intrigued by the horses. The loft is beautiful and is even better in person than in the pictures. We traveled to town and did a little shopping and sight seeing. We were just stopping for a few nights on a move from NC to LA and it was so relaxing enjoyable. The dogs are so friendly and came up to the porch to greet us. I would recommend the loft to anyone for a short or long stay. It was so quaint,comfortable, and homey. I would definitely stay again if I go back through.
