STORYBOOK COTTAGE CHARMING DREAMY RETREAT ON 8 ACRES IN LEIPER'S FORK- MUST SEE

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.

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!

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

Magical Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage, surrounded by lush Tennessee countryside, is so charming it's difficult to find words! The location, just outside of Leiper's Fork, 9 miles from Franklin, and 30 miles from Nashville, is perfect for exploring the area's music, restaurants, and shopping. It's just down the road from the beautiful Natchez Trace, which offers opportunities for hiking, picnic spots, equestrian trails, and road cycling without the pressure of much traffic. The cottage (which is SPOTLESS) is decorated in clean, crisp, whites with a vintage farmhouse, shabby chic vibe. It's a perfect mix of romance with modern kitchen and laundry conveniences, plus flatscreen TV, DVD, wifi, and the most comfortable bed. We loved the fire pit, hammock, screened porch, and outdoor shower. It offers everything needed for a getaway--- we were tempted to never leave this incredible cottage! It may sound like hyperbole or cliche, but it was truly magical. We can't wait to return!

This place was perfect for our little mini-moon. It felt like we were in our own personal fairytale. The decor, the outdoor rain shower, the cozy breakfast nook....every small detail made our stay magical and just added to the feelings of love and joy we were already caught up in.

Delightful Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked a long-weekend stay at Storybook Cottage, and our experience was wonderful. We’ve visited Leiper’s Fork several times and usually try new places to stay, but it will be hard to stay anywhere other than Storybook in the future. The property was exceptionally clean. The cottage is beautifully and tastefully decorated but not overly done. It’s a very welcoming property. The bedroom was one of the most relaxing and restful in which we’ve had the pleasure of staying. We walked in, dropped our bags, exhaled, and said, “aaaaaah….” Sarah, Michael, Wyatt and Scotch definitely have the gift of hospitality and seem to have a finger on their guest’s pulse – having anticipated their every need and throwing in special touches here and there. Two things we always enjoy when we stay in Leiper’s: a drive on the Natchez Trace and breakfast one morning at The Country Boy. Jackson Fall’s are beautiful and only a 30 minute drive south on the Trace. We also enjoyed a great meal at Rolf & Daughters in Nashville’s Germantown and lunch at Franklin Mercantile Deli in nearby Franklin. Even though it was a rainy weekend, we had a great time at Storybook Cottage and look forward to a return visit.

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Storybook Cottage exceeded our expectations. Everything you need is there for your use. You don't need to bring a thing but clothes. On the counter in the kitchen is a round box with marshmallows, graham crackers and Hershey bars as well as skewers to roast your marshmallows in the firepit for s'mores! What a wonderful magical place! We will be back!

A 'MUST EXPERIENCE'... a gift to yourself!

A 'MUST EXPERIENCE'... a gift to yourself!
  • 5 of 5
It was such a treat to stay in your adorable home. The Storybook Cottage truly lives up to its name...we felt as if we had walked into the pages of our childhood books... only better! It's amazing how environments can change your whole perspective on Life. Staying in this 'little house in the forest' had us tucked away in our own corner of the world, yet it was conveniently close to everything we wanted to see and do in Franklin... not to mention the darling town of Leiper's Fork.

Personally, I was fascinated with the decor... such an artistic collaboration of past and present. As I looked around at all the lovely re-purposed furnishings with their years of patina, I thought of Confucius who said, "Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it." You obviously see it, and we, in turn, were able to see through new eyes. What an unexpected treat to be surrounded by such creativity... a definite MUST SEE, MUST EXPERIENCE! (Would definitely recommend this to family and friends)

Thank you for sharing this special place with us... we will be back!

Magical Cottage in Leiper's Fork

Magical Cottage in Leiper's Fork
  • 5 of 5
When we first drove up to the Cottage situated on several acres of forested land, we were immediately taken by the charm of this lovely home.
Once inside, we were impressed with the charming decor, the warmth and coziness of the
house, the impressive amenities provided (not expected!), and the comfort of the bed. There is a screened in porch for sitting, playing games, or reading, and a great outdoor firepit - even an outdoor shower if the moment moves you.
We spent the 4th of July holiday at the Cottage and could not have been more satisfied.
Kudos to the Shelter and Roost team for making our week so very enjoyable!
