About Damon Rogers

Welcome! We are Damon and Mark Rogers, the grateful custodians of Damon's family home where we retired in 2000 after 30 years of Navy life. Mark is a retired Naval Officer, and we have been very fortunate to have lived and travelled all over the world.

The family home was built in 1919 and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) and Captains Quarters, two of our rental properties located behind the Big House, were originally built in 1970 as a guest home and office suite.

Much of the surroundings you'll see when staying at one of our vacation rentals in Franklin have been gradually collected during our Navy years and represent our strong Southern heritage and love of antiques.

Damon Rogers purchased this studio in 1919

Why Damon Rogers chose Tennessee

Originally built as an office suite behind the original 1919 historic family home, you will be amazed at the beautiful conversion from a spacious office suite into an elegant studio apartment. This 800 square foot apartment boasts "brand new everything" with the exception of the family antiques and collected prints throughout.

The original office has become the elegantly-appointed living room, and the king size bed and kitchen nook are just two of many reasons to stay at Captains Quarters. The original powder room has become a fully stocked galley kitchen with microwave, doll-sized oven and stove (so precious!), 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, Italian dishes and serving pieces, and plenty of pots, pans, pyrex and cooking utensils to cook the day away.

In what was once the adjoining storage room has now become a fully-tiled bathroom with tub/shower combination and houses a spacious walk in closet and separate laundry room!

The outside welcomes you with a sweet front porch, window boxes, and seasonal plants contained in wrought iron planters passed down for generations. Walk around to the side yard and enjoy badminton, corn hole or the fire pit with ample wood supplied. Relax in the common patio area or cook on the outdoor gas grill located on the outside patio.

This elegant studio is such a must see piece of real estate in charming Franklin, TN that we often joke about wanting to move in ourselves!

What makes this studio unique

I (Damon) pride myself on being a preservationist and believe in repurposing from old buildings. Shutters throughout the studio came from the basement of my family home, and the Civil War era window grills were bought from a friend after a historic home was demolished.

Both Captains Quarters (VRBO Listing #497691) and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) can be rented to accommodate up to 6 people! For extensive details of the three properties we own in historic Franklin.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Captain's Quarters was so peaceful and relaxing. This was a perfect location in Franklin situated among beautiful historic and quaint homes, but tucked away enough from Main street to be quiet. I enjoyed walking in the area (there is a park nearby) and even walked to Main street on a beautiful morning. The accommodations were everything we needed and the king size bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in. Enjoyed our visits with Mark. Very friendly and attentive and he gave us some restaurant recommendations. Mellow Mushroom is a great place for pizza. Enjoyed Puckett's for breakfast. Their pets are also very sweet! We would certainly stay here again. Franklin is a beautiful place.

Quaint, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We live in the Nashville area but wanted a place to retreat for a couple of days. We loved staying here at Damon's place. When we drove up, she was spending time with the dogs under the huge magnolia trees. Pretty southern scene! Damon was super sweet and showed us around. Gave us restaurant tips, help accommodate some needs we had, and then let us begin our time away. Such a great hostess!

We loved spending time in Franklin. Such a quaint downtown area with so much character. This property is a pretty walk downtown. Definitely make the walk once to see the beautiful homes on Main St. Check out Gray's on Main, Puckett's Grocery, and the Red Pony for some delicious eats. These places won't disappoint. For a quick drink or coffee, check out Frothy Monkey.

The rental was great. Stocked kitchen, Keurig coffee, and even a small loaf of homemade bread. Located in a quiet part of Franklin close to downtown. We felt really comfortable in that huge bed and loved how quaint the place was.

Definitely a great rental, great location, and a great value.

Beautifully appointed, decorated and maintained!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time at the Captain's Quarters! Having just finished a time at a conference/training and hotel stay in Nashville, the quiet and homie feel was just what we were looking for! Plus it's convienent location made it so easy for us to explore the countryside, town of Franklin, great dining experiences and historic sites!

Our hosts were WONDERFUL! There for whatever was needed and yet we felt comfortably secluded!

A wonderful experience and stay!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBO experiences I've ever had, from beginning to end. Owners responded promptly to availability inquiry, price was as advertised on VRBO, booking was simple, an email containing pertinent information about the rental unit arrived quickly, along with a request to confirm receipt of information. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Captain Mark, who gave us a quick tour of the property and introduced us to their sweet golden retriever. Property was as pictured. Comfortable king size bed, kitchen with everything but a dishwasher, stackable washer & dryer, clear instructions on how to access Wi-Fi and how to operate the tv, channel guide, guide to local attractions and restaurants, Keurig with K-cups in drawer below. It was truly a cozy home away from home. The unit was extremely clean, shower was spotless. Located in a very pretty historic neighborhood. Would have been an easy walk to downtown area but my husband and I had just completed our first OCR and we were too tired to do any more walking. We drove to the free parking garage across from Puckett's and had a great supper. The next day we had brunch at 55 South. Franklin has a bustling downtown scene with lots of cute shops and eateries. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. I hope to visit again one day soon.

Whether you walk, drive or catch the Franklin Trolley, you are easily accessible to Carnton Plantation, The Carter House, The Lotz House, movies or live entertainment at the Franklin Theater, shopping, antiquing or sightseeing.

If you are a foodie, you will be pleased as there are numerous privately owned restaurants within walking distance. For the wine aficionado, Arrington Vineyards is but a short car drive along picturesque country roads, or enjoy our quaint country neighbor, Leiper's Fork, where you can pick up the Natchez Trace Parkway and head into Nashville for another full day adventure.

Those of us living in Franklin boast that "we are 15 miles south and 100 years down the road from Nashville." A 30 minute drive gets you to 'Music City USA'! Franklin has been mentioned in major publications like Southern Living, CNN, Money Magazine, Forbes, and Business Week as one of the best places to live, work, and visit in the entire country, and Captains Quarters is centrally located in the historic district of Franklin - home to 150 places to explore that are on the National Registry.
