100 YR OLD LUXURY HOME IN LEGENDARY LEIPER'S FORK - SHORT WALK TO VILLAGE

Franklin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8-10)

Leiper's Fork Inn - a Shelter + Roost Property

This is certainly one of our favorite properties and one you have to see in person to see how beautiful and well located it is. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind and you will not want to leave!

We only rent to one person/group at one time, not by individual rooms and we are just a short walk to the village of Leiper's Fork.

Two 100 year old houses were rescued and moved to Leiper's Fork from Franklin, Tennessee. They were combined to create the charming Leiper's Fork Inn. The Inn is located in Leiper's Fork Village, eight miles south of Franklin, twenty six miles south of Nashville and is within walking distance to art galleries, antique stores, boutiques, a rare book store and a handful of restaurants. This beautiful home sits on close to three acres with almost 3000 sq feet of living space. Relax in front of one of the three fireplaces, cook a family meal in the gourmet kitchen that features granite counter tops, & Bosch stainless steel appliances or enjoy the outdoor barn / pavilion that features six large barn doors, the perfect setting for a candlelit dinner or event. Leiper's Fork Inn is your home away from home. Two master suites include screened in sitting porches that overlook the quaint village of Leiper's Fork, the living room provides a perfect gathering spot for evening conversations, games and puzzles, while the formal dining room provides the setting for a nice meal. A one room cottage set back amongst the trees is also available for artists wanting to escape to paint, read or write.

Leiper's Fork Inn 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.

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.

Leiper's Fork Inn truly has a character all it's own... a story to be told, memories to be made... 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 house in 2013

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.

Lovely and quaint, but be sure to note. . .

This home is ideal and just as the pictures depict. I tend to focus on photos and reviews when choosing a property, and for this property they are spot on. Do be aware that although this is a large home with 3 bedrooms, the price quoted is for 2 guests only. You will pay extra to make use of the entire house. For our family of 5, this resulted in a 4 night stay for the cost of a 5 night stay. Paying extra to make use of all bedrooms was a first for me, so hopefully this information will be helpful to others. We enjoyed our stay and the manager, Tina, is a jewel. . .very helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and for choosing to spend Christmas at our beautiful property. We hope you enjoyed your time there together. I've included an explanation of our rates so that you understand them. Instead of charging a much higher nightly flat rate which would have exceeded what you paid, we choose to price our property at a more affordable rate and to charge an additional fee per person, per night over the first two which is pretty standard in our area. This makes our property affordable to not only larger groups of eight and ten, but also to couples and small families. I'll be sure to pass on your praises to Tina as she spoke highly of you all. We hope to see you back in the near future! Best wishes for 2014! - Sarah, Michael, Wyatt and Scotch

Beautiful Home with Loads of Charm!

This house felt like home as soon as we pulled in the drive! We are extremely picky when it comes to picking a place to stay and this house definitely lived up to our expectations! Everything was very clean and so comfortable! We just loved the country/southern charm of not only the house, but the surrounding area. Every room is beautifully decorated and there is ample room. We highly recommend this house to anyone.
