Private setting and drive with ample room to enjoy the outdoors. Captain’s Quarters is situated in the historic district behind the original 1919 Stone Oaks family home of your hosts, The Rogers. Franklin has been named the 'best small town in Tennessee' and your hosts are eager to share their knowledge of the area whether it be sightseeing, food, tours, or shopping. As natives of Franklin they will lead you in the right direction.
Damon (originally Mary Damon) and Mark Rogers feel privileged to be the custodians of Damon's family home, Stone Oaks, built in 1919. Mark is a retired Naval officer and upon retirement in 2000 they returned to their Franklin roots! Mark served for 30 years and as a couple they have lived and travelled the world. It is evident they collected during their Navy years, however, the Southern influence and love of antiques abound. Although the family home was built in 1919, Captains Quarters and Generals Retreat (VRBO Listing #496793), the two out buildings located behind the original home, were built in 1970 as an office suite and guest home. Both Captains Quarters (VRBO Listing #497691) and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) can be rented to accommodate up to 6 people!
Damon Rogers purchased this studio in 1919
Originally built as an office suite behind the original 1919 historic family home, you will be amazed at the beautiful conversion from a spacious office suite into an elegant studio apartment. This 800 square foot apartment boasts brand new everything with the exception of the family antiques and collected prints throughout. The original office has become the elegantly appointed living room, king size bed and kitchen nook; the original powder room has become a fully stocked galley kitchen with microwave, doll-sized oven and stove (so precious!), 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, Italian dishes and serving pieces, with plenty of pots, pans, pyrex and cooking utensils; and what was the adjoining storage room has now become a fully tiled bathroom with tub/shower combination and houses a spacious walk in closet and separate laundry room! A must see to believe piece of real estate and even the owners are so excited about it they want to move in! The outside welcomes you with a sweet front porch, window boxes, and seasonal plants contained in wrought iron planters passed down for generations. Walk around to the side yard and enjoy badminton, corn hole or the fire pit supplied ample wood. Relax in the common patio area or cook on the outdoor gas grill located on the outside patio.
Homeowner Damon Rogers is a preservationist and believes in repurposing from old buildings. Shutters throughout the studio came from her family home basement and repurposed for Captains Quarters. Civil War window grills were bought from a friend after a Civil War home was demolished. Mark and Damon have added so many personal touches to this conversion that both can see themselves one day living here! Damon says she has built her own doll house!

Loved the easy walk into town, approximately six blocks full fabulous architecture, we also chose it because of the small kitchen, we made a nice romantic dinner for two on Valentine's Day, the kitchen was perfect. Decor a little cluttered for my tastes and allergies!
We stayed with our dog and was not disappointed. Everything far exceeded our expectations. Very comfortable and clean. We loved the surroundings and the quaint town of Franklin. We hope to stay again. This is the best accommodations especially if you have a dog. Their dogs were gentle giants and so humble toward my little dog. Thanks for making our vacation one of the best.
We were overjoyed to spend four days at The Captain’s Quarters this past month. The home was even better than advertised. The owners thought of so many things to make our stay easy and comfortable. Our pets enjoyed the fenced in back yard. Not only was the property clean and well maintained but we had owner's suggestions for local places that were within walking distance. We enjoyed downtown Franklin, Arrington Vineyard enjoyed the shops. It is a great area to visit! Look for Keith Urban at Starbucks
Wow! This studio was fantastic! It was so charming and comfortable. We had everything we needed and it was so easy to come and go. The space was roomy and adorable.
And the host and hostess were so friendly and helpful. This was by far the best way to enjoy Franklin!
Clean, quiet, relaxing as advertised. Lovely setting. Wish we could have stayed longer.
This studio apartment is beautifully decorated and so comfortable.
There is nothing missing that you could possibly want. Great little
kitchen with everything to cook a full meal if you want-even baggies and foil!
Kuerig coffee maker with a variety of tea and coffee pods. Every detail was thought out even down to flashlights-just in case!! The settings is beautiful and the owners were great! Very convenient location to adorable downtown Franklin!! You can't go wrong with this "home away from home"!!
