Great lication

  • 3 of 5

This is a great location for everything Franklin and surrounding areas. Close to all the civil war sites. The house is very cute but no bath soap was offered. The biggest drawback is the traffic. The traffic noise wakes you up in the morning. All and all a good place to stay.

Franklin Rental

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home during a visit to Franklin for a family wedding. It was very convenient to our wedding event locations and we also made several easy trips to Nashville. We had easy access to drive to Nashville and also used Uber and taxis. It was a very pretty walk to downtown Franklin for dinner, shopping, and ice cream. We really enjoyed the area. As for the house, while it could use some love on the outside, the inside was up to date and very clean. We had no issues with the floors. Some rooms had a very small difference in level or a molding to step over, but it was not a problem at all. I didn't notice any slant to the floor as noted in a previous review. Heating/AC worked fine for us. There was a bit of a damp smell, also noted in previous review, but I'm not sure there's much you can do about that in this location in an older home that is not always occupied. We own a summer rental near the beach in Delaware and have the same issue after the house has been empty. I bought some air freshener and it was fine. Beds were comfortable, we had plenty of towels, and we loved the Kuerig-type coffee maker and coffee that was provided. We liked having coffee and cocktails on the patio and the yard, while small, was big enough for the kids to run off some steam and play a little soccer. My one and only issue was the driveway....the street is very busy and it was difficult to back out into traffic, especially having multiple vehicles and needing to move cars around if someone wanted to leave. My sister had a Prius which was much easier to back out of the driveway, so she parked there and I parked my SUV around the corner on the street. If the street wasn't busy, we tried to back into the driveway so it would be easier to get out later. This house was a great, affordable place to stay in Franklin.

Immensely disappointed

  • 1 of 5

If you are looking for a great location to walk downtown, and don't care about anything else, this place is for you. If not, read on. When we arrived at the house we noticed it didn't quite look like the pictures. It is on a very busy, noisy street and looked run down. My wife went around to the rear door to get the keys from the lock box and opened the front door so we could unload the car. When you walk in you see a very small room with a non functioning fire place, a tv over that, a door to the rear leading to the dining room, kitchen, and the rear of the house, a stained and soiled sofa to the left, an oversized chair that nearly blocks the entry, and an door to the right leading to the bedroom with the upper portion made from stained glass. Very odd. We noticed right away a mildew odor and another underlaying smell that likely was caused by cigarette smoke. I walked around the house in my bare feet for a short time and noticed how dirty they were when I took a shower. We also noticed mildew in the shower and wash machine We went out and came back later that evening with everyone going to sleep. I noticed the traffic noise went on all night. We all also found our sinuses were congested and hurt the next morning. My daughter also noticed the sheets appeared clean but the bed spread in her room was also stained and dirty. We went out again and made the decision we would go home a day early. This cost us one days rent but it was worth it. We also left a message for the property owner to express our dissatisfaction and he has yet to return our call.

Nice home for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice home for our family of 6. My wife and I had a private bedroom, as did my mother, and our kids had a bunk room in the back of the house. We didn't have any problems with the AC during our stay, it seemed to work as well as expected. No weird smells, either. It was a nice home that we would stay in again. So very convenient to downtown historic Franklin, a 3 block walk. The living room is tight, that's true so for a large group I can see how it would be difficult to all sit around in there, but the owners have some extra comfy chairs around the house that you can pull in to all sit around and watch TV or relax if you want. I noticed the previous guest wrote about crooked and uneven floors. It is an old home and if you have stayed in historic homes, or own one, as we do in Boston, you will know that this home is no different and is very nice for it's age. We were not struggling to walk around the house one bit, even my mother who is 76 years enjoyed this home very much.

We'll be back when we visit next year.

Bad floors, funny smell, poor AC

  • 2 of 5

The location of this property in downtown Franklin was quite convenient and we often walked to Main Street. However, this could not make up for the other problems we had with the property. I looked back at the reviews and was shocked to see such high reviews. We won't be staying there again, and I want to let others know of the real condition of the property.

We were very disappointed in this property. My family of 6, along with my in-laws, stayed here for a little more than a week while we were waiting for our house to close escrow. When we arrived at the property, it was dark and the lockbox was difficult to find because there was no outside lighting on and the lockbox was not in the front of the house as we were told.

When I walked in, I immediately smelled something odd. I'm not sure if it was old smoke or old mildew, but it was very noticeable and made the stay unpleasant. Right after that, we found that every room in the house was a different level, and every floor sloped a different direction. The various floor heights was the cause of many stumbles and a few falls. The sloping floors made sleep difficult. We felt like we were running into each other because of the slope of the floor.

We unloaded our luggage and tried to get some sleep, but it was difficult because the air conditioner struggled to maintain a comfortable temperature. Eventually we asked the VRBO contact and were told that there was a second unit that also needed to be running. This was not included in any of the instructions that were left at the property. This helped some, but it was often above 80 inside the house by the mid-afternoon.

The living areas were small, while two of the bedrooms were quite large. The sofa sleeper in the living room was uncomfortable to sit on. The kitchen was decently appointed and had enough furnishings for us to make a few meals and spare the expense of eating out all the time.

Good location, would go there again

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 adults going to a wedding in Nashville. This house was in a great location for us to get into Nashville, or just do things in and around Franklin. The house had all the kitchen things we needed to get breakfasts and be on our way. The driveway was small, but it fit our 3 cars just fine. My only issue with the house rental was this...It was known that we had 8 people staying in the house, we had paid for 8 to stay each night. Yet, there were only 6 towels. We bought 2 more towels to use while we were there. One bathroom worked out ok with all of us, as long as we had enough towels to use. Other than the towel issue and a cleaning misstep ( the open-out couch was full of popcorn), the house was just fine. I would stay there again.
