Beautiful Artist's Retreat, Less Than A Mile From Downtown Franklin
We are excited to open our "Funky Cool Franklin" home to you and your family. You will love the laid back artsy feel and the efficient and cozy floorplan of this 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home. Located just under a mile and an easy stroll from Franklin's lovely downtown and all it has to offer including shops, restaurants, and more. If you like civil war history, you will love this location smack dab in the middle of the battle of Franklin battlefield and just a few blocks from the famous Carter House and museum. We have a small number of civil war artifacts and bullets on display in the kitchen that were found right here on our property.
Guests have full use of the entire house and all amenities as well as the two rear decks. There is parking for 3 vehicles in the front. The rear parking areas are reserved. There is a separate building in the rear of the property which is not accessible to guests.
If you like walking, there are some great side streets which will take you through some quaint neighborhoods that you can stroll through, eventually leading you into downtown Franklin and eventually Main Street (the downtown area is about a 15 minute walk on side streets).

About Nancy Stevens
We are a fun-loving family of 6 with 4 boys! We are originally from Oregon and have lived in the Nashville area since 2005. My husband is a Grammy winning songwriter and producer and I am a health and wellness coach.
Nancy Stevens purchased this House in 2005
Why Nancy Stevens chose Franklin
We love the charm and laid back appeal of downtown Franklin. We originally purchased this house for my husband to use as a recording studio. Many hit Christian songs have been recorded in this house prior to its complete remodel and re-conversion back to a beautiful home.
What makes this House unique
Our comfortable home has a nice large southern front porch with rockers and the area is surrounded by civil war history. We have found many artifacts (with metal detectors) literally in our own back yard, such as bullets, buckles, etc. A small number of those are on display in the kitchen.

Property was great and convenient walk to town!
We had a fabulous time in Franklin (and Nashville) for my son's wedding. The house was perfect and landlord was accommodating. We loved the ability to walk to town.
My friends and I enjoyed our time in Franklin at this cute home. The space worked out well for our group. The location was convenient - just a short drive into Franklin where we enjoyed the shopping and coffee and tea at the Frothy Monkey. We had a couple of minor issues that were addressed very promptly which we appreciated. The home was clean and well maintained. There was plenty of room for parking too.
A couple of things to note. If you plan to cook here do be sure to bring everything except salt and pepper as there were no cooking basics (olive oil, cooking spray, spices,etc) as I've found at some places. They did have some Folger's coffee available. Also, we wanted to watch a chick flick after returning from dinner one night and there was no dvd player and we could not find instructions about how to connect to the cable to access our Netflix account,etc. It took one of our ladies 45 mins of watching YouTube videos to figure out how to connect to the cable. Again, not a huge deal, but something to keep in mind if you're planning to use the TV for movie watching etc.
Thank you for your detailed review Sue. We hope you enjoyed your stay. We have taken your comments to heart and will work on making the TV experience more streamlined for future guests.
Wonderful place. Charming house and quite comfortable and clean. Would love to stay again.
Thank you so much for the kind review. We would love to have you visit us again!
I count on reviews when I am booking a rental, so I always take the opportunity to share. This house was even better than our expectations. It had everything we needed and more. Plenty of rooms, bathrooms, and great for making memories with our friends and family.
Chris and Nancy were great hosts and very responsive when I had questions.
It was also in an ideal location. We spent time in Cool Springs, downtown Franklin and Nashville. Easy to get everywhere!
Our favorite spots were Frothy Monkey Coffee (downtown Franklin), Five Daughters Bakery for cronuts (The Factory), and a fantastic pizza spot downtown called DeSano — ingredients flown in fresh from Italy weekly and great, casual atmosphere.
Thanks Chris and Nancy for sharing your home with us. Next time we come we know where we would like to stay!
We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay. And I’d say we have similar taste when it comes to dining out. We are so glad you discovered some of our favorite spots, including DeSano’s Pizza. Please come back and stay with us next time. Sincerely, Nancy and Chris.
We all fell in love with its charm
When we walked in we new we picked the right home to stay at even our sister and husband who rented a home down the street love it . The home was perfect for our family with all the rooms and bathrooms. The home was nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable. And we had coffee!!! That was a nice treat not having to go to the store that first morning as we got in late after dinner. Mr Stevens call to check if everything was all right and asked us if we would like a Christmas tree put up and our grandkids and kids and us were really happy and excited. That made it really special for the kids thank you so much for your home and your kindness you are great host and your home is beautiful Thank you again. The Chavez
❤️ Franklin 🎻🎸
We throughly enjoyed the house and location. House was very comfortable and Franklin was such a quaint town with lots of Good Food and Entertainment. We enjoyed going into Leiper's Fork which was a 15 minute drive and on Thursday night at Puckett's Grocery they have a open mic night and Wow the entertainment there was hands down Great. They have other nights of entertainment but our week was over. The Irish restaurant in town had good food and buy one get one beer for happy hour. Then Gray's was also a good place to eat as well. The night we were at Puckett's they had a nice spread of food. We will be back, way to much to see for a week and highly recommend the house it is close to Nashville and Franklin is such a cute town, Thanks Nancy for sharing your house with others.
