Nashville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse in the Fork - a Shelter + Roost property

Farmhouse in the Fork is located in legendary Leiper's Fork, just a short scenic 30 minute drive south of Nashville in the best community in the area. This is where the stars live and breathe. The close proximity makes it a perfect getaway for recording artists and entertainment professionals looking for peace and quiet during their stay in Nashville.

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.

Our beautiful home sits on forty-one secluded acres in a storybook setting, 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, corporate retreats and family reunions. Whatever that it may be that you are looking for, you'll most likely find it here.

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.

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.

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.

Sarah purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Our son five year old son, Wyatt loves to wake up early to see the family of river otters, catch frogs in the pond, make s'mores over the outdoor fireplace and play countless games of Uno and pool. 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.

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.

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.

Home Away from Home

  • Submitted: Apr 15, 2014

Wow! What a week! Opryland for dinner, Grand Ole Opry for Craig Morgan, Bashville for boot shopping, Leiper's Fork for foot stompin' entertainment (just missed Carrie Underwood one of the employees said) Darn! Joe Naturals delicious lunch and unforgettable strawberry cake and the Jack Daniel's Distillery tour (well worth the drive) but our favorite was the farmhouse - home away from home. Beautiful decor, comfy beds and cozy fire. The weather was not always on our side, but the farmhouse was great for any temperature. Great hospitality

We had such a fabulous time. What a great oasis from the real world. We loved fishing, exploring, making fires, eating s'mores, hiking off the Natchez Trace Parkway and horseback riding nearby. We loved the home. It is beautiful, homey and so cozy. We don't want to leave!

When we pulled in the driveway, we knew we had arrived in country heaven. We loved fishing in the pond, making s'mores at night and telling ghost stories by moonlight. This house is peaceful and cozy

My husband and I stayed here with our then 3 month old baby and had a really lovely stay! The owners really seem to have thought about so many details! Not only were the basics provided (garbage bags, paper towels, laundry soap) it was done so adorably!

Family Birthday Getaway

  • Submitted: Apr 15, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We chose the Farmhouse for our stay in the Leipers Fork area. We have stayed in the area before, and wanted something different. We loved the house. We went to Pucketts at night to listen to some live music, the house was convenient for that, as well as hopping on Natchez Trace to go for a scenic drive. Our son was celebrating his 13th birthday there, they had cupcakes waiting on his arrival, which he loved. We enjoyed playing pool, as well as exploring on the property. The house was clean and everything you might need in the kitchen was provided. We would highly recommend this property for a family get away. We enjoyed our time at the Farmhouse in the Fork.
