About Al or Karen Davis

We built this cozy, custom timber frame cabin for our home and to start a vacation rental business. We have lived in the Nashville area for 10 years and wanted to move to the country to build our dream home and enjoy the beautiful Gatlinburg-like surroundings. We have always enjoyed nature and wildlife but also wanted to be close to the modern conveniences that a city like Nashville has to offer, as well as the charm of historic Franklin and historic Leipers Fork area. The Natchez Trace Bridge is 2 miles from our home. Of course, the music aspect of our area can't be ignored!

Al or Karen Davis purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Al or Karen Davis chose Franklin

Unique, Gatlinburg-like fall away lot. Perfect for the chalet we had in mind and had wanted for years!

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cozy atmosphere, the lovely view of the woods and convenient location so close to Franklin, the Natchez Trace Pkwy. and Leiper's Fork. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed the privacy. Thank you, Al and Karen, for sharing your place with us. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and hope to come back again.

Quaint and Nostalgic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I fell in love with the Franklin/liepers fork area! And this house is nothing short of fantastical. The hosts were outstanding and thoughtful, even leaving muffins and fresh flowers for us to find upon our arrival. We very much hope to return again one day next year!
