BRIGADOON: STUNNING COTTAGE IN THE CENTER OF LEIPER'S FORK VILLAGE C. 1885

Franklin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-8)

Brigadoon - A Shelter + Roost Property: You cannot pay to sleep any closer to the heart of Leiper's Fork Village. Imagine if Ralph Lauren had a yard sale and you will capture something of the essence of this dreamy place.

Brigadoon is beautiful. It is a quirky, post Civil War home that has succumbed to a slight British invasion. Two distinct living rooms and sun/dining room combination give the home its identity. A queen bedroom on the main level offers a traditional sleeping experience; upstairs a queen bedroom suite has a loft feel to it. Single bed, daybed and optional inflatable queen bed will allow for additional places to rest the head. The kitchen, aka 'the coop,' has enough utensils to cook if you so desire. You can also wash up in a wonderful walk-in shower or soaker tub.

Brigadoon is located in the village of Leiper's Fork; in other words, a two minute walk will leave you with three restaurant choices and several unique shops in which to browse. You cannot pay to sleep any closer to the heart of the village. The village folk are amazing. Moreover, you are only 8 miles from one of the best main streets in the South, Franklin and 29 miles from downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

Brigadoon was featured on the Heritage Foundation Tour of Homes in 2012 in which it was also awarded for preservation of a pre-1900 structure. Additionally, it will be play a central role in an upcoming documentary on the childhood life of Walt Disney.

If you enjoy the eclectic, sophisticated and whimsical then you will thoroughly enjoy this stunning cottage in Leiper's Fork Village.

About Us: Shelter + Roost gives you the chance to enjoy Nashville, Franklin and Leiper's Fork, Tennessee while staying in one of our unique properties. Featuring the extra space and comforts of home, you can spread out, relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.

Shelter + Roost features five distinctive vacation rental properties, each offering something a little different—making it a lot easier to select a property that is right for you:

Farmhouse in the Fork: A little bit of country (41 acres to be exact) just off the beaten path. Fishing poles included.

Storybook Cottage: Hansel and Gretel could’ve lived here… really. And they would’ve loved the outdoor shower.

Jefferson House: A beautifully restored historic home, just walking distance to Main Street. This one belongs in a magazine. c.1900

Brigadoon: Imagine if Ralph Lauren had a yard sale and you’ll capture something of the essence of this dreamy place.

Leiper's Fork Inn: Two historic homes, rescued, moved, and restored were combined to create this charming property. This property is rented to one family/group at a time, not by individual rooms. Perfect for weddings and events.

And when it comes to taking care of your needs, we do everything we can to ensure your family can relax and enjoy the surroundings, worry-free. Each property is hand picked and personally owned and managed by our family so you can feel confident your stay will exceed expectations.

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 sons Wyatt and Scotch 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

We bought this house because we fell in love with Leiper's Fork and Franklin, TN. Only 29 miles from downtown Nashville this house gave us the best of both worlds - town and country!

If you love the eclectic in a small community setting with easy access to all the bustle of Nashville and Franklin then this location would be perfect for you.

What an incredible home with a great location. We enjoyed a 10 day stay in this home and it exceeded all expectations. The location was perfect. From the charming and friendly village, close to Franklin and less than 30 minutes to down town Nashville. The home was very clean and comfortable. We cooked multiple times in the well equipped kitchen. The best part was the deck and front porch where we really enjoyed the view and company. Highly recommend this spot. Thank you for a great vacation!!

A wondefully charming and spacious home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at The Brigadoon and the Leiper's Fork Village. There is so much history and charm in the area. The home itself is absolutely enchanting with something to read or admire in every room and nook from artwork to books and games. We even watched The Brigadoon movie that was there for guests to enjoy and learned how to tie bowties that she uses for curtain pulls. Sarah has done an incredible job of turning this home into a fabulous place to relax, play and just spend time with family and friends. There is so much to do in the area with fascinating history and artisans at every turn. We look forward to a return visit and to try out yet another one of her properties.

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of staying at Brigadoon this past week. Michael and Sarah have created the perfect retreat for their guests after a day of sightseeing and driving around Nashville. We arrived with our two teenagers and enjoyed 4 nights with comfortable beds, hot showers, nooks to hide out with a good book (and there are tons of good books in that house...be sure to check out the one with all the dog photographs in it...), and best of all we were able to save $$ by eating all our breakfasts at the house as well as a couple dinners. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything and everything you could possibly need to make a meal...right down to an old-fashioned juicer for homemade orange juice (the way my son prefers to make his...no fancy juicer needed). It is THE perfect location to be close enough to the hubbub that is Franklin and Nashville, but far enough that you can enjoy the peace of the beautiful countryside. We drove around Franklin and saw the various chain hotels they offer, went to the Gaylord in Nashville just to say we'd been there and toured the facility and when we returned to quiet Brigadoon that evening, my husband said, "I'm really glad we stayed here." I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brigadoon to friends and family traveling to Nashville.

Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5
It doesn't get much better than this. This house has so much character and it was so much fun to explore every room. I want to take every thing in her home with me! It's quiet and peaceful and best of all, Puckett's (we went there almost every night to hear live music) and other shops and restaurants were right down the street! So convenient! Sarah and Michael were very helpful and full of great ideas of things for us to do. We can't wait to plan our next trip to Brigadoon and Leiper's Fork! Thank you. Best vacation yet!
