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.

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

My husband surprised me with a three night stay at the Storybook Cottage - I must admit that the second we turned down the driveway I knew this property was special. The fabulous brick walkway and the outdoor lighting set the scene and the interior, I don't know where to start. It is so warm, welcoming and romantic and on top of that impeccably decorated! Wow! I walked through the entire house in awe and so happy that my husband choose this place for us to stay! Lucky me! Besides an evening out at Puckett's and stopping by the market for groceries, we didn't leave the house and enjoyed every moment that we spent there. This place is out of a storybook and we will be back! Over and over and over!

But they can hardly do justice to the charm and comfort of this adorable cottage. This is where The Three Bears would go on vacation if they could because everything is just right. It should come with a warning label: "Caution!!! Due to high levels of cuteness, you may never want to make the short drive to Nashville to see Vince Gill in concert or go hiking along the Natchez Parkway like you planned. May cause extreem dissatisfaction in women with their decor at home. Side effects may include an irrational desire to rip up carpets, paint floors, visit flea markets and sew slipcovers." It will also spoil you forever for other vacation rentals because they couldn't possibly top this one, unless it is one of the other four properties that Sarah and Michael own. We may have to try one of those the next time we are in the area. We saw two great concerts in Nashville, had a fabulous dinner in Franklin (The Cork and Cow) but our favorite place for pure, kick back and relaxed country charm was nearby Leiper's Fork.

Wonderful Family Retreat

My family of 4 had the best weekend in the Nashville area at the Storybook Cottage. The cottage is beautiful - perfectly decorated / perfectly furnished / the perfect size. We enjoyed day trips to Franklin as well as Nashville and then enjoyed "retreating" to the cottage each evening. We would love to come back!

Impressive charm

Storybook Cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. The comfortable and creative environment certainly lived up to it's name. Sarah and Michael have taken great care in crafting an accommodating home away from home. Every amenity imaginable was provided and the cottage was immaculately clean. They were very responsive with a difficulty regarding the furnace one morning, getting the problem resolved quickly. The cottage is conveniently located close to Leiper's Fork (takeout from Puckett's and Country Boy is great, btw), as well as a main highway connecting you to everything in the greater Nashville/Franklin area. We highly recommend the cottage and hope to return ourselves someday. Thanks to the innkeepers for a wonderful time!
