Comfy beds and an unbelievable location to make your trip PERFECT!
Welcome to Franklin and welcome to the Love Shack on Main! We previously lived in this lovely 1901 cottage, but recently gutted and renovated the entire house. It was a labor of love and we are thrilled to share it with you! Located on historic West Main St., the Love Shack on Main is a short block from downtown Franklin's shopping, dining, and business district.
We took our love from our own travels to make the Love Shack a place where we would love to stay and hopefully you will too! Our hope is that you create sweet and lasting memories on your trip to Tennessee so we've tried to make your space comfortable and easy--from the linens and decor to the inviting kitchen and dining area.
When we travel, we like to search out the unique local spots. And because of our LOVE for Nashville and Franklin, you will find many local touches in our Love Shack.
There is basic transportation via the Franklin Trolley but you can simply walk to everything in the downtown area. For longer trips you can use Uber or Lyft who both service Franklin.
NOTE: There is ample street parking for up to 3 cars in front of the house but there is no driveway because, you know, not many cars were around in 1901 :)

About Ran and Kate Williams
We are avid travelers with hearts for hospitality! We design and build houses for a living and our vacation rentals were put together with an extra bit of love! We love our town and want you to love it too!
Ran and Kate Williams purchased this House in 2015
Why Ran and Kate Williams chose Historic Downtown Franklin
The Love Shack on Main is the perfect choice for families, groups, or business travel because it's 117 years old on the outside yet completely new on the inside, except for some of the original hardwoods and fireplaces! Charm and comfort for days!
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location! You will never need to travel to downtown Franklin because you are IN downtown. Add to that the easy access to Nashville (about 20 minutes via I-65 or 25 via various scenic routes). The beds are comfy, the linens are soft, and the tankless water heater ensures lots of hot baths and showers for you and your entire group!

Loved the house! Great location! Can’t wait to return!
Perfect place to stay on our vacation! Can't wait to return
Comfortable, clean and convenient!!
Just a perfect stay. We loved Franklin, and the house couldn’t have been a better fit for our girls trip. The adorable Love Shack on Main is within walking distance to all that’s wonderful in Franklin. Ran was accessible and responsive. We can’t wait to come back and do it all over again!!!
HGTV would be proud
Your revamping of this 1901 cottage would make a great episode of one of HGTV’s renovation shows. For our girls’ weekend, we couldn’t have been more delighted with this property. Each of the six of us had our own bed and sharing the four bathrooms was a breeze. Your pictures don’t do it justice. We loved the kitchen. The proximity to downtown Franklin was great. Franklin is so charming. We loved being able to walk to restaurants, bars, and shopping. We will return.
We loved the Love Shack!
We traveled with a group of friends for a long weekend stay in Franklin, TN. The Love Shack exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place to stay. The house itself has been beautifully renovated, and every space is light and bright. The Love Shack has so much charm and no detail was left unturned. The location of the Love Shack is ideal- an easy walk to all of the downtown shops and restaurants. The owners were quick to respond and answer any questions. It is obvious that they love this house and are proud to share it. We look forward to our next trip back to Franklin and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Additional information about rental rates
Hi...we absolutely LOVE hosting but have learned that accidents simply happen. We thought long and hard about how to protect both YOU and US and have decided to go with VRBO's accidental damage protection. The benefit is that for $59, you're protected for any damages up to $1500. The downside is that it is non-refundable. If we went with a standard deposit, you would be paying an additional deposit (we used to ask for $300 deposit) which would be refunded a week after you checkout. What we learned was that most significant damage was over $300 and usually turned into a difficult conversation. We lowered our per night rate to help offset the $59...and we're both more significantly protected. Win win! IF this is a deal-breaker for you, though, please contact us directly.
