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.

Best Vacation Yet!

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!

Cozy stay in plunging temperatures

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Everything went smoothly with our stay. We were a little worried when the temperature dropped way below freezing that we might be cold in an older, possibly drafty cottage. That was not the case. The owner Christohpher had the heat up and our entire stay was warm and cozy. The cottage has all the antique charm along with modern comforts. The only slight hitch was as I commuted into Nashville for a conference daily, I would have allowed 15-20 more time for my commute had I known the traffic situtation was pretty bad at rush hour. I simply adjusted my commute time the second day and all went well. We loved Leipers Fork. I felt fine leaving my 81 year old aunt in town while I was gone during the day and the last day I was able to enjoy some of the small town with her. The town is delightful.

The best possible place to stay in Leipers Fork!

From the moment we drove up my wife and I were completely smitten. This restored home has it all!!! Small enough for a couples get away. Large enough for a fun weekend away with friends. We were completly satisfied with the Murray's and the hospitaltly they provided. We are already planning a return visit!

christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We rented the Brigadoon for our adult children to stay in when they came to Franklin for our Christmas celebration. We kept the grandchildren at our house which is only a few miles away. This gave our children an opportunity to catch up with each other. They loved the house as did we. It is so charming and warm and cozy. We enjoyed the location and enjoyed watching the Leiper's Fork Christmas Parade. The house has so many cozy places to curl up and nap or read a book. We plan to book again and our kids are counting on it. This is a wonderful place from which to explore Leiper's Fork, Franklin and Nashville. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us.
