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 Franklin
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.

I was over the moon to find lodging of this status for only two people. That’s a difficult task. Booking was a breeze. We were welcomed by Damon and her “welcoming committee” some very friendly furry friends. Damon was so nice, welcoming and accommodating. The Captains Quarters was eye candy from start to finish and very warm and homey. They thought of all the details. I felt like I was staying in a more home-cozy version of a 5 star hotel. I will definitely revisit on my next trip to Franklin!
Great place and great location.
Visited Franklin to see the Civil War history. It was worth the time to visit. Also, our hosts were wonderful!
Super Cozy Retreat
WOW! My daughter and I loved this place. Usually we run from our hotels and stay away until we need to sleep. This adorable, home away from home lured us back each night. We hated to leave. The owners are so kind and friendly. The property is very clean and has everything you could ask for. The banana bread was amazing. The perfect location for a getaway!!!
You were perfect guests and we are delighted you felt so at home in our little dollhouse! Thank you for your kind review and we hope to host you again!
Wonderful studio apartment, with gracious hosts, in an interesting town. Highly recommend.
