About Bud Carman

Owners are Bud & Barbara Carman. We live six minutes away from the Inn and can be responsive in a timely way to assist with any question or concern. We are only a text or cell phone call away for you!

Bud Carman purchased this house in 2002

Why Bud Carman chose Franklin

We fell in love with this property on the first visit. We learned the house was constructed in 1892 as 'a Victorian Home in the Queen Anne Style'. The house is absolutely beautiful and we have enjoyed decorating it so much. We are located in Franklin's Historic District and in addition to lodging, host weddings, bridal luncheons, afternoon teas and countless birthday and anniversary parties. The house was constructed as a residence in 1892. Why this property? We just loved it and still do! That's why. Although we live a few minutes away, hanging out here is fun and the large screen tv's provide a favorite get away spot for the sports lovers in our family. In January 2002 when I learned this property was on the market, my first thought was how nice it would be to own a Victorian home in Franklin's historic district, and that thought has become even nicer over the years.

What makes this house unique

The queen suites are upstairs, away from the entry level area, assuring an abundance of privacy. The King suite has its own separate entrance and privacy, located off the canopied courtyard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place is amazing and exceeded our expectations! We appreciate your hospitality and it made for a wonderful mini family reunion and New Year's celebration. Happy 2013!

Best Inn we have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in May of 2014 and could not believe it. The pictures don't do this house justice. We stayed in the Lillie bell white room and absolutely loved it. This inn is literally a few paces off the main square for shopping and dinning. We are hotel snobs and this place fit the bill. We could not believe how inexpensive our stay was for soft sheets, clean beautiful marble bathrooms, and an amazing location. The home has beautiful history and is completely remodeled with all the comforts to include flat screen TVs in all the rooms and the sitting nook off the second floor. Bud the owner was beyond accommodating. A true southern gentleman. Our flight was delayed and he still went out of his way to meet us after 10pm. We will be back for sure renting the whole house for a girls trip!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
The Franklin Inn is BEAUTIFUL and very accomodating! We had a great long weekend. We had 3 couples so the arrangement of the upstairs living quarters was absolutely perfect. The rooms are large, very comfortable and bathrooms very, very nice. The rooms were quiet and very private.
Great restaurants and shopping within walking distance and the few times we took our car out the access in and out was very easy. We are all bt 55 - 60 in age and the walking was easy and lots of fun. Very safe area
Would definitely recommend this Inn. Bud was very accomodating and a perfect host.
My only negative would be if there was a catered event at the house during the stay....I am not sure how that would be a bit more challenging. As it was for us we could visit and played games and brought in pizza for dinner the first night. We were all tired from driving and we got around to going to eat everyplace was at last 2 hours wait so just not sure how that would have worked out.
Otherwise beautiful place and great weekend

A weekend at the Inn at Franklin Square

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed 3 marvelous days at the Inn. The convenience to the square in Franklin was a big plus. There was a fair in progress in the square which added to our enjoyment. The Inn itself is a treasure. It is a great blend of history and modern conveniences. The back yard is covered by a large, lighted tent which we used for out large family to gather and enjoy before dinner. Several nice restaurants were within walking distance so this was a real plus. We used the large dining room to play cards in the evening and the living room was also a great gathering place. However, the best features were the quality and cleanliness of the facility, the hospitality provided to us and the way we truly felt at home. I hope my family can enjoy the Inn again in the future.

Son's wedding

Lillie Belles was absolutely perfect, Bud & Barbara are so very welcoming and give you all the information you need to enjoy your stay in Franklin, we are from Atlanta, and our family rented the entire Inn as well as the event center for the rehearsal dinner. The Inn is beautiful and filled with antiques while having all the modern conveniences such as wifi. Our Italian family did the cooking, but both Chef Joe and Chef Eric came by to make sure we knew how to use everything. Our rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the TVs made it convenient to watch whatever you wanted. The Carmens were available in a moments notice, and being from Atlanta we always worry about parking, well no need to worry, there is plenty of parking that is provided by the City of Franklin. The entire stay was wonderful. We will be back.

June Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (6 of us) stayed at the Franklin Inn for 5 days and nights. We have an excellent time. It started out by meeting the owners, Bud and Barbara. They are a super nice, couple with warm hospitality. The house felt more like a home. The 3 bedrooms upstairs have plenty of room, updated bathrooms, and a great sitting room where my family and started and ended our day. The guest house off the patio is also like a little home of its own, with all the amenities needed to relax and enjoy your stay. I would highly recommend staying there, and I'm looking forward to my next visit and stay next summer.

Exquisite Victorian Throwback

  • 5 of 5
Visited Franklin this spring to attend my sister's wedding just down the road. The family occupied the entire Inn (all four rooms) for four days. Entering this beautiful home evoked emotions of an era of style and grandeur gone by. The fine touches of Victorian styling made my wife giddy from the "shabby-chic"ness of it all.

We stayed in the Lolly Room which had a comfortable bed, cable TV, wifi and a nice bath. I loved the sitting room next to us that had a loveseat where I could enjoy the morning sun. Best of all, it came equipped with a Keurig coffeemaker!

Bud was very hospitable and shared a little about the history of the place. Franklin itself has one of the more picturesque downtowns I have ever seen in all our travels - and this was all within short walking distance from the Inn! Barbara came in as arranged to prepare the filling breakfasts, with lovely Victorian place settings, for the entire family. On Sundays, they offer a buffet brunch that we didn't get a chance to try - maybe next time around.

Overall, the Inn at Franklin Square or Lillie Belle's (its name as an event venue) was a wonderful and pleasing experience. Definitely worth a trip back in the future.
