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

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.

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.

SON'S WEDDING

Son's wedding
  • 5 of 5
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.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
My best friend surprised me with a night at Lillie Belle's for my husband and me. I had never stayed at a B&B so I did not know what to expect. Bud welcomed us when we first got there and made us feel right at home. The house is beautiful, charming and just peaceful. The location is ideal because you can walk to some of the best restaurants and shopping Franklin has to offer. Bud and Barbara made us feel like family and it is obvious they make you and your accommodations their priority. Lillie Belle's far exceeded my expectations and we can't wait to go back!

A TRUE GEM!

  • 5 of 5
In my personal opinion, Franklin is one of the most beautiful town in Tennessee and Lillybelles is the epitome of that beauty. Everything about this Inn is absolutely perfect. My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't have had a better experience. To top it off, the owners are two of the nicest people I have ever met and will be sure to help you feel right at home. If you are looking for a wonderful place to have a wedding ceremony, vacation in Nashville, or have a romantic getaway, look no further!

Outdoor seating on front patio under dogwood tree overlooking 3rd Avenue South.
