About the property

Apartment, Bed & Breakfast, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Cozy cabin apartment 4 miles from historic Leipers Fork, 2 miles from the Natchez Trace and 6 miles southwest of Franklin business district (Cool Springs), historic Franklin, and Battle of Franklin sites in a beautiful hillside, wooded setting. Built as a vacation rental with total privacy in mind for the guest, the owners live upstairs and have separate entrances for the guest - there is no “common area”. The guest enters through the red door on the side, see the pictures! Only 30 minutes from downtown Nashville and all of its attractions. Roomy 600 square foot getaway on 9 acres of wooded hills in a Gatlinburg-like setting. Beautiful stone wood burning fireplace with 37 inch HD television make the nights very cozy in this ideal setting. HD DVR and WiFi are both included. In the middle of a famous biking, hiking and scenic drive area year-round.

Country kitchenette, which includes stainless steel dishwasher, cooktop, microwave, and refrigerator, can be used for breakfast/meals. A light breakfast of coffee, muffins and orange juice is included. Outdoor patio includes hot tub, grill and picnic area.

About Al or Karen Davis

We built this cozy, custom timber frame cabin for our home and to start a vacation rental business. We have lived in the Nashville area for 10 years and wanted to move to the country to build our dream home and enjoy the beautiful Gatlinburg-like surroundings. We have always enjoyed nature and wildlife but also wanted to be close to the modern conveniences that a city like Nashville has to offer, as well as the charm of historic Franklin and historic Leipers Fork area. The Natchez Trace Bridge is 2 miles from our home. Of course, the music aspect of our area can't be ignored!

Al or Karen Davis purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Al or Karen Davis chose Franklin

Unique, Gatlinburg-like fall away lot. Perfect for the chalet we had in mind and had wanted for years!
