Nashville House Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps a maximum of 8; 3 full baths

Our country retreat is located on 5 beautifully landscaped acres in a peaceful setting amid the Tennessee horse farms--close enough to all the action (25-minutes to Nashville), but far enough away from city lights to have a brilliant, starry night sky.

SLEEPS 8 (MAXIMUM)

The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, large walk-in closet (large enough to use as a small nursery with a Pak-n-Play), and a master bath with a large walk-in shower and double sinks. The second bedroom has a queen bed and private bath with a tub/shower and single vanity. The third bedroom has a queen bed and there are two twin beds in the bonus room. All upstairs rooms have access to the balcony.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

We offer more than just a place to sleep! We go out of our way to ensure that your visit to the Nashville/Franklin area is comfortable and enjoyable. All you need to do is show up with your luggage. We provide linens, bath, pool, and hot tub towels, a fully equipped kitchen, etc. When we are in residence on the property, we are happy to meet all your needs. When we're not present, our property manager is a phone call away.

THE RIGHT PLACE

Whether you're looking for a country getaway, a place to stay while attending a conference, or simply a place to relax and let the world go by, you've come to the right place. You can get out and explore the sites and sounds of beautiful middle Tennessee-indulge yourself at a day spa, sightsee in historic downtown Franklin, or shop at nearby Cool Springs Mall. You can stay in and relax with your morning coffee on the patio, take a dip in the pool, enjoy the porch swing while you sip a traditional glass of Southern ice tea with mint you’ve picked from our herb garden, lounge in the covered pavilion and read a book, play a lively game of ping pong, toast marshmallows at the fire pit, or watch the gorgeous sunsets.

DECOR

You'll feel comfortable and relaxed in our sunny, country retreat. The kitchen, dining room, baths, and laundry room all have ceramic tile floors; all other rooms downstairs are hard wood, and the upstairs rooms are all carpeted. Beautiful crown moldings accent the main living areas.

ON THE GROUNDS

Our 5 acres of privacy offer many amenities for relaxing and having fun:

* patio just off the living room and dining room

* a 16 x 34 foot in-ground pool, 3-ft to 8ft deep

* a 24 x 48 foot covered pool pavilion with kitchen

* private sitting area adjacent to the pavilion with HOT TUB and fire pit

* gas grill

* large game room building with 50's diner decor

* ping pong table

* skee ball

* air hockey

* open grassy areas for kids to run and play

* a field for soccer, badminton, etc

* 175 yd. driving range

* parking area large enough for any vehicles-RVs, trailers, boats-also great for younger kids to ride their bikes or rollerblade

Other amenities include Dish satellite TV, DVR, DVD player, extensive DVD library, book library, board games, and WiFi Internet access.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

Staying in this area is a rich and colorful experience. Nashville, only 20 miles away, is home to the world of country music-from museums to tours of the stars' homes to the Grand Ole Opry. It's a country-music fan's mecca. You can honky-tonk your way through famous Printer's alley, take in an exhibit at the Frist Center for Visual Arts, or attend a sports event (Sounds baseball, Predator’s hockey game, Titan’s football game, Vanderbilt football or basketball game).

Franklin, brimming with old town, historic charm, is only 10 miles away. Franklin is one of the oldest towns in Tennessee, and it begs to be explored and appreciated. Spilling over with Southern hospitality, there is an endless array of eateries, antique shops, Victorian and Civil War homes, and battlefields.

WHEN TO BOOK

Our property books up about 3 - 6 months in advance, so we recommend that you try to book your dates as soon as possible. If the dates you want are already booked, give us a call anyway and we can put you on a waiting list in case there is a cancellation.

DISCOUNTS

We offer a discounted rate if your party is small enough (1 to 4 people) to use only the first floor of the residence. You would have full use of the main living area on the first floor, but the upstairs would be locked and not used during your stay.

VISITING DAY GUESTS

Inviting people to visit you and enjoy the amenities of the property for the day carries a surcharge of $20 per person per day and is limited to no more than 4 additional people at one time.

PARTY RENTAL FEES

Additional fees apply if you wish to host a party with 12 or more people while you are a guest at the property.

OUR CLEANING METHODS

We have a cleaning check list with over 140 items on it that we complete after each rental. The list is too long to include here, but here are a few of the Aunt Mamie routines that we perform to ensure that everything is fresh and clean for you when you arrive:

1. sanitize all bed pillows, decorator pillows, and upholstered furniture by steam-cleaning

2. replace all sheets, pillow cases, mattress pads, blankets, quilts, and bedspreads or coverlets with freshly laundered linens that have been washed in the hottest water with bleach or bleach alternative.

3. replace all towels and wash cloths—even the ones that look like they may not have been used—with freshly laundered towels and wash cloths that have been washed in the hottest water with bleach or bleach alternative.

4. wash all dishes, glassware, silverware, and cookware in the dishwasher—again, even the ones that look like they may not have been used.

5. disinfect all hard surfaces, cabinets, and drawers in the kitchen and bath

6. wash and disinfect all bathroom tile floors (up close and personal - by hand).

7. vacuum and spot clean all carpeting.

8. have carpet professionally steam-cleaned as needed (about every 3rd to 4th rental).

When you stay with us, you don't have to wonder if the towel you take out of the cabinet might have been slightly used and returned to the cabinet. You don't have to fold the bedspread back so you don't have to touch it. You don't have to worry that the last guest who used that spoon simply rinsed it off and replaced it in the drawer. You can just relax and enjoy yourself.

More Details
Hide Details

This home and property has always been a gathering place for family and friends, and it was just a natural extension to open our home to travelers and vacationers who prefer not to stay in an impersonal hotel. When we are in residence, we are 'practically invisible' but we are happy to be as attentive to your needs as you desire while you vacation on the property.

Yvonne Johnson purchased this house in 2003

We chose this location because it's in the country, surrounded by fields and horse farms, but just 10 miles from the center of downtown Franklin or Cool Springs - the hub of shopping, dining, day spas, and entertainment. The pastoral countryside and the sights and sounds of this place encourage you to slow down and enjoy the peacefulness. When you're outside, you can hear the wind chimes and the trickling of fountains, listen to the birds calling to each other from our two dozen Southern pines, and sometime hear a distant farmer's rooster crowing in the morning. If you listen carefully and at just the right time, you can hear the faint whistle of a distant train. When you drive down our road, you'll pass horse farms, a big red barn, a log cabin, a lake, acres of pasture land, and the rolling hills rise up to meet you just as you turn into our driveway - food for the soul everywhere you look. The 200-foot driveway, lined on both sides with crepe myrtles, is an explosion of pink from late July until September. Summer nights are cooler and the stars are brighter here. Fireflies poke holes in the dark and beckon to be captured in glass pickle jars.

Our guests seem to especially love the pool/picnic pavilion and the nostalgic ’50’s diner located in our 40-ft x 60-ft activities building, filled with automotive memorabilia, antique gas pumps, old general store signs, Coca Cola memorabilia, and an array of model cars and replicas. An old neon restaurant sign, a Tin Lizzy from the 1939 World’s Fair, and a 1909 gas pump mark the entrance to the building, and a working, antique skee ball machine, rescued from an old amusement park, provides our guests with hours of fun.

My husband and I just returned from spending 4 wonderful days at this rental. It was everything and more that was described on the website. We were there with 2 other couples (family) and it was the perfect place for us to visit, because we don't see each other often. We were in town for the LSU game in Nashville and didn't want to stay in a hotel. We spent every evening sitting on the patio and visiting, it was private and very quiet. We tend to get a little loud and talk a lot so we were in the perfect spot as not to bother others. The property was 20 minutes from Nashville and it was easy to travel back and forth. The thing I was most impressed with was how clean and pristine the house was. I would definately recommend this rental. Yvonne and Rick were great hosts....the best!!!!!

My family made a trip to Nashville for some business and stayed here (right outside of Nashville! Aug 2010). We have 4 kids (2 older teens and 2 younger girls) and this property was perfect for all of us! The upstairs "room" is more of an apartment that my teen boys enjoyed having to themselves! They have plenty of games and activities to keep everyone busy and entertained and everything inside and out is very clean and well kept! We could not have been more comfortable or more happy! The use of golf carts (just for fun), driving range, ping pong, etc are just wonderful and the swimming pool and outdoor kitchen/pavilion are fantastic! There is even a fire pit where we roasted marshmellows and enjoyed an evening outside! The hosts are wonderful and accomodating! We scheduled a 50's diner "party" one evening to celebrate my son's birthday! "Flo" and "Mel" were so much fun and the food really was delicious. Such a great idea and completely different than any other place we had ever heard of! I highly recommend this rental to anyone! Yvonne and Rick are so gracious and make every effort to make sure that anyone staying here feels at home!

Our family vacationed at the house while our older son was at camp in Downtown Nashville. We found travel to both Nashville and Franklin to be very easy. The property exceeded all our expectations! Everything was immaculate and comfortable and Yvonne and Richard were so gracious and hospitable. Our younger son (13) had a blast in the 50's diner/arcade. We enjoyed the pool and the driving range as well. We truly felt like we were at a resort and didn't want to leave! We would HIGHLY recommend this property if you are planning to visit the Nashville/Franklin area.

We had the wonderful opportunity of spending a week at this property while in Franklin, TN for a basketball tournament. The attentiveness and graciousness of the Johnsons made our stay extremely enjoyable. Smores in the evenings over the fire pit, hamburgers on the grill by the pool, swimming in the evenings - what more could you ask for? The house was spacious, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The gameroom in the diner, computer access, and the golf cart - it can't get any better than this! Paradise awaits you in Franklin, TN.

A Great Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 17, 2010
  • Stayed: Feb 2003
While relocating to Middle Tennessee, I was fortunate to discover it, and I rented it for four months. This place was great! I didn't want to leave. To say this place has it all would be an understatement. With the fully equipped kitchen, I had everything I needed to cook my own meals and even entertain guests. I loved the pool and the covered pavilion beside it. It was great to be able to duck into the shade of the pavilion but still be close to the pool.

But perhaps what really set this place apart from the others was the 50’s diner. This thing blew me away. The attention to detail is fantastic. When you walk in, it’s as if you’ve traveled back in time. It is decorated in a Coca-Cola theme and not only looks authentic, it is authentic! Everything works, from the griddle to the jukebox. Too cool!

I really appreciated that the location was close to Nashville, Murfreesboro, and Franklin. Spending the day in Franklin, especially in the Cool Springs area, was wonderful, exploring all the unusual shops and fine eateries. Nashville is close by too with plenty of night life to offer as well as some great places to eat. I recommend Jack’s Barbecue on Broadway in downtown Nashville.

This property is well-maintained, offers a variety of amenities, and is the perfect spot for a vacation, a romantic getaway, or just some down time in a beautiful country setting. I recommend it highly to anyone considering a stay in Middle Tennessee.

This home is in a lovely area of Franklin, yet close to all that Nashville has to offer. It is by far the best VRBO home we have stayed in! The pictures do not do the home and the property justice. We loved hanging out in the 50's diner playing skeeball and ping pong. Rick is a great short order fry cook and makes really tasty burgers and fries. Make sure you get a chocolate malt. Yummy! Thank you Rick and Yvonne for your hospitality and for all you did for us! We can't wait to come back! We have already recommended your home to many of our friends!

We stayed with Yvonne and Rick because we wanted the hominess of a bed-and-breakfast, not the impersonal atmosphere of a hotel. The space is large and comfortable and tastefully furnished, the pool is great and we loved the proximity to Nashville and all the city has to offer. We were treated like family. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.
