A unique opportunity to rent a beautifully renovated, Victorian on W Main street in downtown Franklin. The "Rhodes-House" home is on the National Register of Historic Places and 2 blocks from all of the attractions! Stroll to all the charm!

The space

Franklin is considered the number one small town in Tennessee and also made the top 10 on Southern Living’s ‘Best Small Town’ list. Experience this sweet community and southern hospitality, while enjoying the history, upscale shopping, dining and live entertainment…all just a leisurely stroll down Main Street...with Sweet CeCe's Yogart and Starbucks being your first two stops.

This home is ideal for a romantic escape, in-town vacation, weekend with friends, wedding party or vacation for the whole family. Our home has also been utilized for photo and video shoots, so let your imagination run wild! If you are a fan of Brownland Farm, we are also conveniently located within a couple of miles. Our home is also on every major parade route, so be sure and check into Franklin festivals and parades.

The house features twelve foot ceilings, four bedrooms and two baths with over 2600 sq ft of living space and 4 fireplaces. The kitchen is stocked with all of your everyday needs and includes an enormous pantry and fully equipped laundry room.

At the end of the day, relax on the patio in the private backyard or enjoy the people watching on the front porch swing. The home includes a 50” HDTV for your entertainment enjoyment and a unique collection of vinyl records for your listening pleasure.

The home sits on a rare and level double lot and is professionally landscaped. There is a 2 car garage and private driveway in the rear with additional street parking in the front. A Weber gas grill is also available during the spring, summer and fall. An optional inflatable queen bed will allow for two additional guests.

This house is truly a gem and has a character all it's own...we look forward to sharing it with you.

We arrived in the pouring rain, walked into this glorious home and forgot all about the rain. Everything was exactly as described, all appliances and technology worked well. The location is prime for walking to all the restaurants and shops in downtown historic Franklin. The beds were very comfortable, house was clean, ample towels and kitchen appliances. We look forward to a reunion trip and staying here again.

Tommys house in Franklin was elegant, classy and perfect for our trip. Large enough for our group. Comfy beds. Great kitchen and walking distance to downtown Franklin. We enjoyed morning walks in the neighborhood, cooking meals together in the kitchen and having this home to call home for the weekend. Communication was great. Very accomadating and completely accurate description. Thanks again tommy! Kirsten and the Bachelorette party

A fantastic house in a lovely location within easy walking distance of the town centre in Franklin. Tommy was a very good host-answering our emails straight away - wouldn't hesitate to recommend to everyone.

Great house in a PERFECT location in downtown Franklin. Very nice to have a driveway for parking and be able to walk anywhere downtown. The house is very old with lots of character, and the front porch is great for sitting and talking while watching cars and people go by. Definitely recommend this place!

This was our second time staying at the Historic Rhodes-House. The first time was for a girls weekend and this time was for my sisters bachelorette party. Tommy is an awesome host and the front porch is perfect for hanging out. I highly recommend booking your stay here!
