Historic home located in the heart of Downtown Franklin. You will have half of this century old southern charmer all to yourself. The home is divided into two units with no shared spaces. You will have your own bedroom, bathroom, parlor, and office space with a double bed...and private use of the Front Porch. The home is walking distance to Main Street with dozens of dining options, and is right in the middle of several Civil War sites. Franklin is about 30 mins from downtown Nashville.

The space

1896 Home nestled in the heart of Historic Downtown Franklin. You will have your own private entrance through the front door of this southern charmer. Front Porch, Parlor, Office (with a double bed), Bedroom, and bathroom will be yours to enjoy. Completely separate and private with your own kitchenette (Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker). Downtown Franklin's Main Street is an easy 15 minute walk from the front door. There is no shared spaces and you will have complete privacy at this quiet retreat.

Ample driveway parking lot, and private front door entrance. Homeowner's part of the house is completely separate with no shared spaces.

We will take the cues from you. We find that most of our guests enjoy quiet and privacy. We have a code lock to allow you to come and go at your leisure. We have Franklin Visitor guides in your room and a curated list of restaurant recommendation. If you need anything or want to meet us, we are available through message, text, and phone.

The side walk in front of our home leads straight to Starbucks on Main Street. All that historic Franklin has to offer is a short walk from our front porch. Main Street with great shopping and restaurants, Carnton Plantation, Carter House, and many more Civil War Sites are all less than a mile away.

The neighborhood is very walkable.

Other things to note

One Note: The bathroom in the unit is accessed through the Master Bedroom. Although the unit has two separate sleeping rooms, guests have to walk through the Master Bedroom to get to the bathroom. We find this works great for family and close friends, yet not ideal for two couples.

This is a great location near downtown Franklin. Lovely old house. This is listed as two bedroom but really is one bedroom. The second room has a bed in it but no working plugs, no wifi, no tv or closet. You also have to walk through the main bedroom to get to the bathroom. Plus the bathroom does not have a door for privacy. The kitchen area is also through the bedroom just outside the bathroom. This area had a door. This is a perfect lodging for a couple due to the set up of the bathroom and lack of amenities in the second bedroom.

A very quiet street in a charming and historic small town. Sharing the front of a duplex with the owners in the back and overhead, separated by a single door, there can be a tiny bit of noise in the unit at times but it is certainly not distracting or problematic. Privacy is not a problem. Had a great night's sleep, plenty of hot water in the shower, and the A/C is very adequate. Would rate it a very good value for the money.

My husband, Nathan, and I live in beautiful Franklin, Tn with our two children. We fell in love with this neighborhood and have poured our heart into renovating this old home. When we are not renovating our home...Nathan stays busy as a songwriter and building furniture from barnwood. I am a district manager in the restaurant industry.
