Property description

Brigadoon - A Shelter + Roost Property: You cannot pay to sleep any closer to the heart of Leiper's Fork Village. Imagine if Ralph Lauren had a yard sale and you will capture something of the essence of this dreamy place.

Brigadoon is beautiful. It is a quirky, post Civil War home that has succumbed to a slight British invasion. Two distinct living rooms and sun/dining room combination give the home its identity. A queen bedroom on the main level offers a traditional sleeping experience; upstairs a queen bedroom suite has a loft feel to it. Single bed, daybed and optional inflatable queen bed will allow for additional places to rest the head. The kitchen, aka 'the coop,' has enough utensils to cook if you so desire. You can also wash up in a wonderful walk-in shower or soaker tub.

Brigadoon is located in the village of Leiper's Fork; in other words, a two minute walk will leave you with three restaurant choices and several unique shops in which to browse. You cannot pay to sleep any closer to the heart of the village. The village folk are amazing. Moreover, you are only 8 miles from one of the best main streets in the South, Franklin and 29 miles from downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

Brigadoon was featured on the Heritage Foundation Tour of Homes in 2012 in which it was also awarded for preservation of a pre-1900 structure. Additionally, it will be play a central role in an upcoming documentary on the childhood life of Walt Disney.

If you enjoy the eclectic, sophisticated and whimsical then you will thoroughly enjoy this stunning cottage in Leiper's Fork Village.

About Us: Shelter + Roost gives you the chance to enjoy Nashville, Franklin and Leiper's Fork, Tennessee while staying in one of our unique properties. Featuring the extra space and comforts of home, you can spread out, relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.

Shelter + Roost features five distinctive vacation rental properties, each offering something a little different—making it a lot easier to select a property that is right for you:

Farmhouse in the Fork: A little bit of country (41 acres to be exact) just off the beaten path. Fishing poles included.

Storybook Cottage: Hansel and Gretel could’ve lived here… really. And they would’ve loved the outdoor shower.

Jefferson House: A beautifully restored historic home, just walking distance to Main Street. This one belongs in a magazine. c.1900

Brigadoon: Imagine if Ralph Lauren had a yard sale and you’ll capture something of the essence of this dreamy place.

Leiper's Fork Inn: Two historic homes, rescued, moved, and restored were combined to create this charming property. This property is rented to one family/group at a time, not by individual rooms. Perfect for weddings and events.

And when it comes to taking care of your needs, we do everything we can to ensure your family can relax and enjoy the surroundings, worry-free. Each property is hand picked and personally owned and managed by our family so you can feel confident your stay will exceed expectations. If something comes up during your visit, one of us is always available to answer your questions or assist you. In fact, we pay attention to all the details so you don’t have to.

The properties of Shelter + Roost will bring you and your family an experience you’ll never forget.

Owner info

About the owner: We stumbled upon Leipers Fork by pure chance in the spring of 2011. We knew right then and there that we wanted to make this special place a part of our lives. Family is extremely important to us and we get such joy watching our sons Wyatt and Scotch enjoy the people and community as much as we do. We own four vacation rentals in the area want you to enjoy your stay with us. If there is anything that we can do to enhance your experience during your stay, please let us know

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
We bought this house because we fell in love with Leiper's Fork and Franklin, TN. Only 29 miles from downtown Nashville this house gave us the best of both worlds - town and country!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you love the eclectic in a small community setting with easy access to all the bustle of Nashville and Franklin then this location would be perfect for you.
