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.

About Sarah

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

Why Sarah chose Franklin

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.

-Sarah, Michael, Wyatt and Scotch, Innkeepers

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to take the time to write you and thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Our family had a wonderful time together celebrating my husband's birthday. We would have been content never leaving the house! I hope that we can make a tradition out of this and look forward to returning next year, maybe even sooner. Thank you again for all of your help and recommendations. You truly have a gem of a home and we appreciate everything you did for us.

The Farmhouse Inn at Lieper's Fork

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful setting in the countryside just outside Franklin in Lieper's Fork. The home was like staying at the Walton's if anyone remembers the show from the 70's. We loved the place, just wish the bed situation was a little more comfortable. One bedroom was very small and had a double bed in it. There is a larger bedroom but it also had just two double beds. The Master bedroom had a double bed. The extra room was a pull out couch which was very uncomfortable so the couple took off the mattress and placed it on the floor for more comfort.

The kitchen was my favorite because it was huge with a large kitchen island with high end appliances. It even had a warming oven which was nice to have for keeping foods warm for Easter Dinner!

We really enjoyed the nice big porches in the morning for visiting and drinking our coffee!

Thannks to the owners!!

We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful farmhouse!!

Love this place .The house is huge and has everything you would need. The location was a great fit for our group of cyclist , easy access to The Natchez Trace and surrounding Hill's . So close to Puckett's for great entertainment and food . This is the 3rd year our group has stayed in the area and we will be back again next year.

Charming Place to Relax Over Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay in this wonderful home. Updated and spacious interior, with very special touches in every room. Thanks for the Christmas tree ! My mom and my wife especially loved the wonderful kitchen. Very close to Leper's Fork, which gave us a great reason to get out and walk almost every day - Puckett's, Nice Diner, and fantastic galleries and shops. Our kids enjoyed the large yard where we used the tree swing and generally ran around playing tag and catch. Sarah was wonderful to us and very helpful. Loved It and we look forward to our next visit !
