Overview

Franklin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Storybook Cottage is just as you would imagine . . . charming and dreamy, professionally decorated and the perfect place to get away from your fast-paced world to find the things that matter most. From the painted poplar wood floors and the cathedral ceiling to the sleeping loft, outdoor shower and stacked stone wall this cottage is one of a kind and is perfect for a romantic getaway, small families, weekend with friends or as an artist / writers retreat. Storybook Cottage is also horse friendly!

Storybook Cottage sits on eight acres in legendary Leipers Fork, just a short scenic thirty 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. The Natchez Trace Parkway is a little over a mile away and is perfect for hiking, biking, horseback riding and scenic drives and 'Main Street' in Downtown Franklin is just twelve miles away.

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 Manhattan 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, character and community pride of what is known as Leipers Fork.

The cottage features cathedral ceilings, one bedroom, plus loft and one bathroom with just over 800 sq ft of living space The master bedroom has a comfortable top of the line king size bed, while the loft features two twin size beds. In addition to the one full bathroom, there is a charming, private, outdoor shower off the back enclosed porch. The kitchen has is stocked with everything you need, from a bottle opener to pots and pans, baking dishes to forks and knives. At the end of the day, gather around the outdoor fire pit and make s'mores or play board games together on the couch. Choose between cable TV or a selection of DVD’s to watch on the HDTV. A washing machine and dryer are available for your use The home sits on eight acres and includes shelter and a fenced area for horses.

*Please note that due to the incline of the stairs, the loft is not suitable for young children. There is a queen sleeper sofa for your use.

Our son Wyatt looks forward to making s'mores over the crackling fire in the outdoor fire pit and playing countless games of Uno. My husband, Michael can't wait for the amazing lightning bugs that appear to be dancing all around and I look forward to waking up with a cup of tea on the back enclosed porch, lazy afternoons in the hammock - dozing off while reading a good book, and can't wait for the private outdoor shower. There is something special about showering outside and listening to the sounds of nature.

The Cottage truly has a character all it's own... a story to be told, memories to be made... a secluded retreat nestled amongst the trees. Visit Storybook Cottage... where every where every nook and cranny provide its own adventure, where nature blends into everyday life… Sit back, relax and enjoy.

About Sarah

We stumbled upon Leipers Fork by pure chance in the spring of 2011. We knew right then and there that we wanted to make this special place a part of our lives. Family is extremely important to us and we get such joy watching our son Wyatt enjoy the people and community as much as we do. We own four vacation rentals in the area want you to enjoy your stay with us. If there is anything that we can do to enhance your experience during your stay, please let us know. - Sarah, Michael, Wyatt and new baby Scotch

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved everything about this storybook cottage. So much that we went to visit Kim and David at City Farmhouse. We even had to buy two of the flickering lantern candles to take home with us as a reminder of our time spent here.We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on a cool evening. We also really enjoyed Puckett's!

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! The cottage is beautifully decorated, well stocked, and perfectly situated out of town from Franklin and Leiper's Fork but a very quick drive in. The owners were very helpful and accommodating during our stay. Strongly recommended and we hope to return!

So dreamy!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exquisite and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a little getaway close to Nashville. Leiper's Fork is so beautiful (particularly in the fall!) and this was a great way to spend a couple of days there. We loved the decor, the comfy bed, exploring the property, the hammock, and the s'mores ingredients left for us to enjoy. Can't wait to return!
