Mary Ellen Redford
About Mary Ellen Redford
Although, born raised and educated in Nashville, Mary Ellen married Clyde Redford of Franklin in 1969. He and his father grew up in this house, which was built by Clyde's grandfather in 1902. Mary Ellen lives south of Leiper's Fork, about a 25 minute drive from the FBI.
Mary Ellen Redford purchased this House in 1899
Why Mary Ellen Redford chose Franklin
This property has been passed down from one generation to the next. Sam Redford built this home and others in Franklin between 1899 and 1902 having purchased the land from what had been part of the Carter plantation. This home holds great sentimental value for the Redford family, so much so that when the 5th generation, Emily Redford, moved out, we decided to restore it, preserve it, keep it in the family for future generations and share it with others. Today we are offering our family home for travelers seeking comfort, luxury and ambiance in their travel accommodations.
What makes this House unique
Staying at the Franklin Battlefield Inn is a step back into time, a slower, gentler time of charm and grace. Built only 38 years after the Civil War, this property was on the battlefield. History abounds. Visit the Historic Carter House and Carnton Mansion. Perhaps a ghost tour would appeal to you. The back deck and back yard with a fire pit offer visitors the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy their time together. We think you will feel the love that has gone into restoring the old and creating the new aspects of this home. It is not a Victorian Museum, but rather a charming and comfortable place to make new memories.

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. She is an amazing host and pays attention to detail. I plan on staying again.
Great home and great location!
Our family had an excellent stay in the Franklin Battlefield Inn. The home is so well kept and well appointed with anything and everything you might need. The large fenced yard was perfect. The location is great and we all were able to spend some time in the downtown area of Franklin which was really nice. Nashville is so close too!
We had a wonderful time, I was a bit nervous it was the first time Gonda and I had been away from our Daughters and Grandkids at Christmas. We celebrated Christmas a few days early and headed out, turned out to been a great trip for just the two of us......
Great place to stay in Franklin!
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home! We had a really great trip and hope to be back again soon!
Intimate, charming wedding venue
The Franklin Battlefield Inn was the perfect venue for a small wedding! This VRBO is a true gem nestled in a quiet setting near downtown Franklin. The large, fenced yard with mature trees and shrubs provided a fairy tale setting for the bride and groom. The garage, the terrace and the use of the kitchen and bathrooms were exceptional pluses for this property. Also, the bride and groom enjoyed the use of the house for their first night as a married couple. The owner was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. She was an excellent source for recommendations for rentals and services from local businesses.
Truly a beautiful experience in every way!!
For you Civil War buffs... this house was built at the very epicenter the Battle of Franklin, and only two blocks from the historic Carter House.
