Franklin TN is just an unordinary place. You don't meet a stranger. When you arrive, you are home. This beautiful structure was built in 1859 and was originally a church!

It just takes you somewhere cozy and warm and full of life!

There is simply no place, anywhere like it! This magical home is truly one of a kind! Whether enjoying a home cooked meal with your friends, gathering around the fireplace and flat screen for a good movie, or hanging on the back porch listening to the babbling waterfall, this place IS the place to vacation. Rest and relaxation is a must on vacation... This incredible, jaw dropping escape truly provides that with all the comforts of home. Fully furnished and fully equipped with all luxury linens, cookwares and service needs. Enjoy the 8 seater hot tub located directly outside the master suite while listening to the water fall from the wonderful creek 15 feet away from the secluded back porch! So many things to do just a few of miles away! I implore you.. Come stay with us! The greatest way to experience beautiful Tennessee.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY BUT A FEW KINKS

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at the Fairview property. The house was very pretty and had a generally very good layout. The kitchen/dining room worked especially well for our big group. It was kind of a drive to get to either Nashville or Franklin, but we were aware of that going into it. The creek that runs by the house was SO nice. We loved that there were lights on it at night. In fact, because of the lights we were able to watch the snakes in there hunting for food! Ack! It was actually kind of cool. The beds were super comfy. The porch was great for swinging. The side patio was awesome to just chill in the evening with a frosty beverage. And the fans out there make it pretty comfortable in the summer heat.

The kinks mainly came with the fact that new owners were taking over as we were taking our vacation. So there was some confusion on who to contact, what all the procedures were, where to find the procedures, etc.

We also had a hard time getting hot water quickly. And the pressure in the main bathroom wasn't good enough to warrant the 5 spray shower (even though it looks VERY fancy).

WEDDING TRIP

  • 4 of 5
The location was beautiful. The house was also beautiful But could use some TLC. It could use a pressure washing outside and Jacuzzi needs regular cleaning. Management company was quick to respond to any problems we had. We enjoyed our stay and would go again.

PERFECT COUNTRYSIDE RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at this creekside country retreat. We love all the personal touches to the home, it made it feel like it were our own. The creek was much larger than I expected it to be, and it was louder - which was fantastic!! Beautiful area, only a short drive from Franklin (a beautiful drive too) and about 40 minutes to downtown Nashville. Highly, HIGHLY recommend it! My only negative... no tea kettle, and I am an avid tea drinker ;) But they had everything else! Wish I could move to this house. <3

GIRLS WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
A-MAZ-ING!!! Came here for a girls weekend and we loved every second of it. Beautiful house...I could live here! The creek outside with the little waterfall was so peaceful and made for fabulous nights & mornings on the patio. Meschell was extremely helpful and even brought us a stockpot and a grater so I could make the girls pasta one night. She also answered about a zillion questions from me through email and texts and was so delightful in her responses. <3
We spent one day in Franklin at the shops and had lunch at Puckett's. Great cheeseburger! We spent the next day at Leipers Fork and a Barn Sale. I tried the best balslmic vinegar I have ever tasted and wanted to buy a bottle, but the lady next to me got the last bottle they had. I was disappointed but told her to enjoy it to the fullest! And then as she was driving away, she gave me the bottle and wouldn't let me pay her for it! She said that's Tennessee hospitality! So sweet...I didn't get her name, but we all really appreciated the gesture and enjoyed it with olive oil and bread that night. So thank you, Kind Stranger!
As for the house, it's so awesome you won't even want to leave. It has all the amenities imaginable: Great beds, lots of space, 2.5 baths (with a cool shower!), amazing kitchen (with a pot filler even- incredible), and the biggest and baddest fridge i've ever seen!
I am definitely going to come back here....hopefully soon!

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures on here are beautiful, but in person this home is HEAVEN on EARTH! There was not one thing I could find to criticize. It was warm, inviting and peaceful. The perfect venue for our girls getaway for 5. Our favorite feature was the waterfall. We spent hours sitting creekside....hours.
