I 'm so proud of Mooonshine Hill and hope you will feel like it's your home when you walk in the front door!

I 'm happy to help with anything you need during your stay as I 'm a native Nashvillian. Moonshine Hill was an old farmhouse that happend to make 105 proof MOONSHINE, folks came all the way from the Kentucky state line to buy the famous White Lightin. My builder kept many parts of the original house during the renovation. We were able to salvage some of the most charming pieces of the house, and now it is yours to enjoy. Please come for a visit and stay while! Oh, and bring your family pets too!

My family, including twin 6-year-olds, loved our visit to Moonshine Hill Inn! The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The house is nestled in the scenic Tennessee hills, along a winding road and creek near Leipers Fork, which is a very charming little town with great shops. After surviving a long, cold Chicago winter, we spent most of our time outside enjoying the treehouse, pond, pavilion, and quaint cabins. Our kids had a blast playing in the treehouse and visiting the geese in the pond. The house is decorated beautifully with many interesting pieces of art, objects and books tucked away in every corner of the house. Ann thoughtfully provided many things in the house that made our visit more enjoyable - everything from delicious coffee and chocolates to wonderful body wash and soaps. We definitely hope to return again! Thanks!

This is our second trip to Moonshine Hill. We absolutely LOVE it. There are so many buildings and areas to explore. Our kids were in love with the treehouse. The cottage "aka castle - to our kids" is so quaint and beautiful. Her attention to detail is unbelievable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful place!!! I had said if this place looks half as good as it does in the pictures we will be OK. It was better!!! We have Labs that love to be outdoors. They got to hike on the 21 acres everyday. The house was stocked with everything we needed, and some things that we forgot. Going into Leipers Fork was quaint and fun. Sitting by the fire outside and inside was wonderful. Can't wait to go back!!

My wife and I renewed our vows at Moonshine Hill Inn for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It could not have been more perfect. The cabin itself reminds me of something out of an old-time country Christmas story. It is decorated beautifully but more important is the attention to detail that been has attended to. There is everything available from KitchenAide Mixer to a hairdryer and body oils. I thought I knew much of the history of Franklin and Leiper's Fork, but the coffee table books she has available proved me wrong... I could spend a month just reading these wonderful books. The property is extremely well maintained. We held the renewal ceremony in the gazebo which is nicely furnished and beautifully lit, overlooking the lovely pond. There are several fire pits available and we used them all. Firewood is furnished and is of excellent quality. After spending three days here, there is no doubt, we will return to Moonshine Hill.

AWESOME GETAWAY WEEKEND

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Moonshine Hill!! It is perfect! Located in a nice, peaceful area but still close to everything. We enjoyed going out to Leipers Fork, Franklin & surrounding areas, but then were equally excited to get back. Weather was beautiful so we took advantage of being outside, exploring & sitting around the fire pit which was awesome. Later in the evening, sat in front of fireplace & watched some of the many movies provided. They provide everything you could ever need! Honestly, just can't say enough nice things about Moonshine Hill!! Can't wait to go back!!

Beautiful Moonshine Hill

My husband and I chose Moonshine Hill to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. From the moment we arrived at Moonshine Hill, we knew we were in for a wonderful treat. We wanted to stay someplace peaceful and beautiful and that it was. The house and property is even more breathtaking in person than in the pictures! We loved the town of Leiper's Fork-there were some lovely shops and places to eat. We had breakfast at Country Boy Restaurant and it was great! The owner of Moonshine Hill gave us great suggestions on things to do during our stay. We went to the town of Franklin, which is about 20 minutes away and saw a great musical show, did some shopping, had wonderful dinners and also took a tour of the properties involved in the Civil War. We were busy at our own pace every day and enjoyed coming back to Moonshine in the evening to relax and spend time with our cat. Yes, we were allowed to bring our cat who loved it there also. The owner answered any questions we had and was very accomodating. We hope to go back soon as we so enjoyed our stay and really liked the fact that we were the only guests there. The property has so much to do without even leaving, it has a newly constructed tree house, a log cabin, a moonshine room musuem and a gorgeous gazebo to sit in and relax. We LOVED Moonshine Hill!!!
