Charming Corner Cottage in Historic Downtown Franklin

Bedrooms 2
Space 750 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Adorable, charming and cozy cottage located less than half a mile from Downtown Franklin's Main Street. We can comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests. Each of our 2 bedrooms offer a queen sized mattress, plenty of pillows, luxe sheets and comforters. We've done quite a bit of traveling and understand the importance of a comfortable, cozy bed.

We do provide our guests with plenty of fluffy towels and washcloths for your entire stay. Our cottage is equipped with a smartTV (in living room), high speed WIFI and cable.

You'll notice in the pictures we have a grand deck in our backyard. It's a perfect spot for backyard BBQ-ing. The grill is ready to be used as our days get longer and summer fast approaches!

It's an easy 1/2 a mile walk from our cottage to one of our favorite downtown, local coffee spots-Frothy Monkey (125 5th Ave S.) You can start your morning there with a delicious cup of coffee or delightful baked good! For those of you that require a cup of coffee first and foremost we do offer a Keurig in the cottage with assorted coffee flavors, teas and hot chocolate. Our cottage does come with a 'mostly stocked' kitchen (food not provided) silverware, plates, bowls, pots and pans, cutting boards, serving bowls, tupperware, sugar, salt and pepper and cooking utensils. We invite you to cook and eat in our kitchen as if it were you own. Please just remember to take any extras with you when you leave. We also provide a full sized hair dryer (because who wants to travel with one of those?!) and Blu-ray DVD player just in case you need it.

About Liz Sauer

I visited Franklin, TN back in 2015 and just simply fell in love with this charming historic town. I found the people to be extremely inviting and genuine with an overwhelming sense of community and Franklin pride! The nearby rolling pastures are as picturesque as they claim to be and instantly pulled at my heartstrings to plant roots here.

Liz Sauer purchased this house in 2016

Why Liz Sauer chose Franklin

I didn’t have to wait long. On a visit to town I happened upon the cutest little cottage. It's New Orleans inspired rustic shutters and quaint porch swing instantly spoke to me! AND it's location! I love that it's close to everything and yet tucked away on its own little dead end street away from the hustle and bustle. When I'm in town I love starting and ending my day on the front porch swing, the birds chirping and the trees gently swaying in the breeze. It’s been a labor of love and vision but when I was done I knew this cottage was meant to be shared with others.

What makes this house unique

This was the cutest cottage! We were very comfortable in a quiet, little neighbourhood!

We had a fabulous time! The cottage was super clean. The beds were very comfortable. The linens and towels were soft and plentiful. It was situated in a great location near charming downtown Franklin. We felt very safe and even made a few excursions into Nashville even though that wasn't the purpose of our trip.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Corner Cottage for a couple days over Memorial Day Weekend. This place is like new and appears to have all new furnishings. It was also very clean and well taken care of, the kitchen is fully stocked and is really nice. Its in a good location that is walking distance to downtown Frankin. There is a nice back porch with a grill and small fenced in back yard. We enjoyed our stay and really liked the location. We would stay here again for sure.

Liz was great to work with answered all our questions.

While you're in town be sure to take an afternoon (or two) and explore our Downtown Main Street. You'll love meandering through our shops (full of neat antiques and Franklin-centric trinkets.) Be sure to stop at The Barn Door (109 S Margin St, one of our favorite little shops.) White's Mercantile on Main Street has a great assortment of locally made goods such as carmels, coffees and more. While you're in town also be sure to check out The Factory on Franklin Rd. It's a mixed use space of shopping and dining. They have great live music playing :: check out there calendar here -->

If you're up for the drive/UBER ride, Arrington Vineyard is a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon! You can pack a picnic and head to Arrington (25 mins from the Corner Cottage.) They also have live music events check out their calendar here --> ::

And don't forget about Nashville. We're less than 30 minutes from Downtown Nashville's infamous Broadway (something you absolutely should experience if you have not). If you're looking to spend the day in Nashville, we suggest that you also check out some of the other wonderful neighborhoods: Germantown, 12South, The Gulch, 5 Points/East Nashville...just to name a few. If you'd like dining suggestions please reach out prior to your stay and we'd be more than happy to send our list based on area/neighborhood.
