Battlefield Cottage was built on the actual ground where the Battle of Franklin raged.
The little brick cottage was built in the 1930's. While development of a civil war battlefield would not happen today, much of the the Franklin battlefield was lost to commercial development in the immediate decades after the war. Today, preservationists are reclaiming the historically significant sites. In 2006, land bordering the southwestern end of the Carter House property (steps from Battlefield Cottage) was acquired with help of the Civil War Preservation Trust and local organizations. This site saw tremendous fighting and was part of a brief Confederate breakthrough. After the purchase, a house, out-buildings, and a swimming pool were removed. During excavation of the original Federal entrenchments some human bones were found.
The area around the intersection of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. (steps from Battlefield Cottage) has seen a serious renewed effort since 2005–06 to reclaim that area for the center of a future battlefield park. The location of the former Pizza Hut is now the home to Cleburne Park. The property where the Carter Cotton Gin was located during the battle was purchased in 2005. In 2008 the property behind this location and where the Federal line crossed Columbia Ave. was purchased and in May 2010 the property east of the Gin location and where part of the Gin may have stood was also purchased. A Domino's Pizza in a small mini-mart at the northeast corner of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. still stands in the center of the key battlefield area, but is scheduled to be removed.
Preservation organizations plan to reconstruct both the Carter Cotton Gin and some of the Federal entrenchments before the 150th Anniversary of the battle on November 30, 2014, as part of the Civil War Sesquicentennial
My sister and friends and I stayed here for a Girls Weekend last weekend and the cottage was perfect for us! The decor was warm, cozy and inviting. Beds were comfy, bathrooms were spacious, kitchen was stocked and the location could not have been better! So much more fun and better than staying in a hotel, as it felt as if we were just staying in one our homes. We walked to to downtown - took us about 15 minutes - and minutes to Green Hills and other nice areas around Nashville. Elizabeth was so nice and easy to work with and one of the only owners that did not charge a non-refundable deposit which we appreciated immensely. We will definitely be coming back again. This cottage is wonderful!
We have an annual pilgrimage to Franklin for the Tennessee State High School wrestling championship and have found our new digs for us and our dog!! The cottage is darling, the large baths for each room are luxurious and the beds and linens are to die for. Anyone looking for a home away from home will not be disappointed when they stay at Battlefield Cottage. Ms Winnie found the spacious fenced backyard to be fertile new sniffing grounds with squirrels scampering about. We shared the cottage with another couple and it was sooooooo much nicer than a hotel suite! Although we did not need handicapped access it was thoughtful that the back entrace would accommodate those with limited mobility.
After our successful tournament was over late on Valentine's Day, we popped into the sushi restaurant in a nearby strip shopping center and were so pleased with our dinner, as good as our favorite spot in Atlanta. Thanks for the wonderful Feanklin hospitality!
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, little cottage in the heart of Franklin. It is small, but very clean and comfortable! We had everything we needed and the dogs really enjoyed the back yard and deck. They were delighted to watch all the birds and occasional squirrel. This was a nice quiet neighborhood in a charming little town, but still close enough to Nashville to take in all that the city has to offer. Elizabeth was a joy to work with and always available. Thanks for sending help to get the TV mishap solved, and for letting us bring our four legged kids.
Rented this cottage for two couples. House is very old, but kept clean. Two master bedrooms are excellent for privacy for both couples and beds were VERY comfortable.
Pillows in our room were stiff, but some ppl like that. Owner left laundry detergent, soap, coffee, shampoo and conditioner. Blow dryer in closet in small bath. Plenty of towels. Location perfect to downtown Franklin. Only complaints: Only four forks and four knives in kitchen. Only four hangers in our closet and no where to put your clothes (nightstand size "dresser"). To be fair, we could have called the owner and asked for more hangers. Nieghborhood was small and felt safe. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. Loved the sliding glass door in bathroom out to deck!
This was a darling cottage with a fabulous location to downtown
Franklin and all the sites.
Property was perfectly clean and well-maintained. Everything to make

Listing is accurate and home is just as cute as photos depict.
Homeowner, Elizabeth, is delightful and available to meet any request
you could have!
i hope to stay here again! A great and memorable trip for my husband and me
and our precious pups!
Our week long stay with friends was everything and more. Home was described perfectly with everything you need to function just like home. The home is decorated perfectly. The beds are so comfortable for a great sleep on a quiet and beautiful street. The bathrooms are terrific with so much room. Downtown is a quick three minute drive with plenty to do. Our host was so accommodating the only thing you need to worry about is having a great time during your stay. Thank you again Elizabeth, you're the best!!
