Take a leap of faith to Leipers Fork

Sweet and savory, like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Shouldn't work, but boy, does it work. Welcome to Leipers Fork, the PB&J of vacation rentals. Leipers Fork is an unorthodox concoction of straight-up folksiness and cool country chic, but once you've tasted it, you won't want anything else. This arty little village with a homey Southern vibe has acres of charm (about 1,100, to be precise), and a Leipers Fork vacation rental is going to dish up great food, great art, and great music, all within a few minutes of your front porch.

Things to do

The best news? These days the hooch is legal!

Leipers Fork is big on art, with galleries including the Copper Fox, Leipers Creek Gallery, and David Arms. And to get into the spirit of the old moonshiners who used to turn a coin in these parts, why not take a tour round the local distillery? Much of the live music and events action is focused around the Lawnchair Theater, and you've got great options for excursions too. The city of Franklin's a quick 10 miles away, and the country music mecca of Nashville is only 30 miles - in case you want to pay your respects at the Grand Ole Opry.


A whole lotta bang for your buck in Leipers Fork

For such a little firecracker, Leipers Fork packs some serious vacation punch. Whether you're browsing through record stores and antiques, tapping your foot to some live music, or going head-to-head with some of the most honest-to-goodness Southern cuisine that ever crossed your plate, you're in for a rare old time round here. And it's the events that really put the pep in a Leipers Fork vacation rental. From running races to music festivals and turkey shoots to Christmas parades, there seems to be something going down year-round in this pocket-sized paradise.


Dress like a country singer and you'll be all good

Like everything else about a Leipers Fork vacation rental, the weather round here is pretty chilled out. There are 4 distinct seasons, but none of them are particularly uncomfortable. Summers can get hot and humid, but that wide-brim Stetson oughta keep the sun out of your eyes. Spring and fall are the longest seasons, and you might just run into some thunderstorms. If you get a soaking, you're in the right place to console yourself with some comfort food. Winters are pretty mild, and though you might get a bit of snow, it probably won't stick around long.

Natural features

This ain't no normal Fork, but that ain't no normal road

Set among rolling hills, the big natural attraction of the area round Leipers Fork is the Natchez Trace Parkway. Based around an old Native American and pioneer forest trail, it's a 444-mile national parkway littered with historic sites, viewpoints, and a huge range of scenery including forests, plains, and waterfalls. The road is closed to commercial traffic, and driving or walking it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Hikers can still stick to the original foot trail if they want to, while the fact that it's got such good visibility makes it great for birdwatchers.
