Battlefield Cottage was built on the actual ground where the Battle of Franklin raged.
The little brick cottage was built in the 1930's. While development of a civil war battlefield would not happen today, much of the the Franklin battlefield was lost to commercial development in the immediate decades after the war. Today, preservationists are reclaiming the historically significant sites. In 2006, land bordering the southwestern end of the Carter House property (steps from Battlefield Cottage) was acquired with help of the Civil War Preservation Trust and local organizations. This site saw tremendous fighting and was part of a brief Confederate breakthrough. After the purchase, a house, out-buildings, and a swimming pool were removed. During excavation of the original Federal entrenchments some human bones were found.
The area around the intersection of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. (steps from Battlefield Cottage) has seen a serious renewed effort since 2005–06 to reclaim that area for the center of a future battlefield park. The location of the former Pizza Hut is now the home to Cleburne Park. The property where the Carter Cotton Gin was located during the battle was purchased in 2005. In 2008 the property behind this location and where the Federal line crossed Columbia Ave. was purchased and in May 2010 the property east of the Gin location and where part of the Gin may have stood was also purchased. A Domino's Pizza in a small mini-mart at the northeast corner of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. still stands in the center of the key battlefield area, but is scheduled to be removed.
Preservation organizations plan to reconstruct both the Carter Cotton Gin and some of the Federal entrenchments before the 150th Anniversary of the battle on November 30, 2014, as part of the Civil War Sesquicentennial
We were in Franklin for niece's wedding. This place was perfect for two couples with the two master bedrooms. Easy walk to downtown Franklin.
Staying last week in Franklin in this quaint little cottage was a wonderful experience. It was almost like I had stepped back in time when I first set foot inside. While the bathrooms had been added and were modern, the remainder of the cottage reminded me of when I stayed at my grandparents/aunts and uncles homes. It was comfortable, clean and the location was quiet and within walking distance to downtown. My sons and I did a lot of walking and exploring while in Franklin and the surrounding area. We loved it and I highly recommend it to anyone. Oh and it is pet friendly even though I didn't take my furbabies this time. Maybe on my next trip. Thank you for the memories.
We stayed at the cottage for a week with our 2 small kids while vacationing in the Nashville area. Upon arrival we found everything exactly as expected from the description - clean, neat & attractive. The floor plan works very well for a family with children, or 2 individuals or 2 couples - plenty of space and privacy with the double masters. Plumbing, laundry & heat all worked well. Fenced in yard and back patio/deck were an added plus. Excellent service by homeowner, would highly recommend this property and would stay there again if in the area!
The Battlefield Cottage was everything it was advertised to be, and my group completely enjoyed the stay. The cottage itself is clean, cozy and comfortable; no maintenance problems at all, and it is located on a very quiet side street just a few away blocks from Franklin's vibrant downtown. Its location also gives visitors very easy access to the historical sites in Franklin such as the Lotz House Museum, the Carter House, and the Carnton Plantation and battlefield park. I would not hesitate to stay at the Battlefield Cottage again in the future, and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends or family.
We arrived tired after a long drive to find everything pleasing to the eye & very refreshing. Christmas music was playing, scent of pine needles was in the air. Our beds were very comfortable & nights were very quiet. The bathrooms were gorgeous & efficient. The kitchen was stocked to perfection. We stayed for 10 nights so we feel we are able to review appropriately. One funny thing: our little dog was not a fan of the red kitchen floor, it took several days for us to entice her to walk on it. She, however, loved sitting at the back doors & looking out at the squirrels.
Really appreciated clean, very comfortable and well maintained home. Loved the fenced yard with access from both rear bathrooms. Park in front great on quiet,friendly neighborhood dead end street off Main Street less than 1 mile walk to main downtown area with great restaurants and attractions. Recommend to my friends and relatives with or without pets. Excellent customer service.
