About Property Manager/Owner

North Meets South

Thirty Years Ago Scott, From Michigan , Meets Christine, From Mississippi As They Moved In To Same Apartment Complex. Christine's Car Blocked The Movers So Scott And Christine Had An Unusual First Encounter. Family And Job Transfers Had Us Both Moving To Franklin, Tn.

Guess You Can Say It Was Almost Love At First

Sight As 7 Months Later We Got Married.

It Has Been A Fun Journey As We Have Loved Getting To Know The Franklin Area Together, Feeling There Is No Other Place We Wanted To Put Our Roots Down And Make It Our Permanent Place To Live. A City So Steeped In History And Culture, Southern Hospitality, We Found This To Be The Place We Want To Call Our Forever Home.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Franklin

We both came from flat terrain and fell in love with the beautiful rolling hills of Middle Tennessee and particularly Franklin. The quaint small town was something we had always dreamed we might one day live in and we were at the right place at the right time to make it all happen for us. How fortunate to have the opportunity to buy this cottage and renovate it with our personal touch. Now we can stay in downtown Franklin whenever we want, and share it with others as well. We hope you will find it as charming as we do. We know you have a choice and we hope your choice is our Harmony Cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

The closeness of the cottage to downtown Franklin, it's historic address being part of the original battlefield, and within walking distance to the downtown Franklin Square, reached out to us making us choose this cottage to purchase and renovate for our own personal enjoyment as well as share with others who come to visit Franklin with all it has to offer. You know Franklin has been voted to be one of the

top 5 small cities in America to visit. This is such an honor and Franklin takes pride in it's city full of so many things to do and abundant opportunities for all. What better place to call home, to live and raise a family. Nothing like pure Southern Hospitality.

Charming cottage in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this cottage! It was perfect from the location to the cottage itself. It was fully equipped and so incredibly charming. Franklin, as a town,was a beautiful destination to explore middle Tennessee. Hope to return someday!

Owner's Response: Marci, Thanks so much for your 5 star review. I am so happy you thought the cottage was in a perfect location. It really is so close to everything you would want to do in the downtown Franklin area. ( and walking distance if weather is nice) Only 25 minute drive to downtown Nashville, and a short 8 miles to Village of Leipers Fork ,also part of Franklin, Tn. I always love to hear from my guests that they felt the cottage was fully equipped. I certainly tried to think of everything my guests would need during their stay to make Harmony Cottage their home away from home. I even stay there myself from time to time to make sure I stay on top of what all is needed by my guests. The best compliment an owner can get is "I'd like to return again for another visit"...That sums it up nicely. Please do come back so, once again, Harmony Cottage can pamper you during your stay in Franklin. Fall is a great time to come an stay when the temperatures are cool and the foliage is beautiful. Hope to see you again as guests at Harmony Cottage. Sandy

Adorable, cozy cottage!

Great location minutes from downtown historic Franklin. Beautiful, cozy cottage, updated kitchen. Would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Sandy, To repeat your own words " Would love to stay here again!" let me say "Would love to have you again!" One of the best compliments an owner can get from a guest is they want to come stay again in your cottage. You, too, mentioned the great location as many of my guests do after they depart. It is perfect in every way, close enough to walk to downtown Franklin, or drive if you prefer. Located in a great neighborhood on a very quiet street is a plus. So glad you enjoyed the cottage and the time you spent there on your mini-vacation time. Fall is just around the corner and that is a very busy season for Franklin, an I might add very beautiful that time of year. Best to start booking those dates now as they fill up quickly as one could imagine. Thanks so much for your 5 star review. My future guests do like to hear from former guests how they rated their stay at Harmony Cottage an, of course, the additional comments always paint them a visual picture. Hope to see you again real soon. Enjoy the rest of the summer....hurry back! Sandy

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your 5 star review. I would love to have you as a returning guest next time you are in this area. You said "Such a great spot" and I certainly agree that the location of Harmony Cottage is in a fantastic "spot" close to the downtown area, in fact, walking distance for those choosing to walk to town. On the walk you pass many interesting places to visit. The quiet neighborhood also has charm, and that fenced in backyard with the privacy fence is a bonus for a great cookout with the family and friends. Thanks again for choosing Harmony Cottage I as know you certainly had a choice...just glad it was HARMONY!! : ) Sandy

The Ideal Place to Stay in the Nashville Area

  • 5 of 5

My family and I first started visiting Nashville about 7 years ago, and we usually stayed at a hotel in Brentwood. However, this place is where we will stay from now on, because it's both a great home and a great location. The town of Franklin is charming, and this cottage is so comfortable and well-equipped for a family of three to enjoy a few days in the area. We don't have Netflix at home, which made it fun to watch it here. The shower is so amazing that my wife wants one just like it at our home. The grill worked perfectly for our July 4th cookout :). Sandy is great to work with too! We can't wait to come back this fall for another visit . . .

Owner's Response: Chas, I want to thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with others to read after your stay at Harmony Cottage. I guess you really summed it up when you said it was IDEAL and your favorite place to stay since you started coming to Franklin 7 years ago. So happy to found Harmony Cottage an it will be your go-to place from now on when visiting Franklin. After reading your review you certainly experienced everything the cottage has to offer from decor, comfortability, location,well-equipped, patio with grill, Netflix,and the fantastic shower. How's that new shower installation going for ya?! You did mentioned coming back in the fall to spend a few days. That is such a beautiful time of year here so take a look at the calendar as the crisp fall days fill up pretty quickly around here. Thanks again for your 5 star review. Have a great summer! Sandy

Charming convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5

Harmony Cottage exceeded our expectations! It’s located on a quiet cul de sac street convenient to downtown Franklin. Smartly decorated with everything you need. I wish I could have stayed longer and definitely will return. Harmony Cottage is one of my favorites!

Owner's Response: Madison, You certainly know how to make an owner proud to have had you as a guests. When you said "exceeded your expectations" that was just awesome. I try to post everything exactly like it is on my listing so people will know what they see in pictures is absolutely what they see when they walk in the front door. I know when I stay at places I want it to be what I saw in the listing and most time it is, but, unfortunately sometimes it is not. I never want that being said about Harmony Cottage. I am so glad you mentioned the quiet neighborhood, the cleanliness an the decor. I hope you got to enjoy some time in the beautiful fenced in backyard during your stay. Nothing like a good family cookout within the privacy fence of the property. Hope you got some front pouch time in the swing. I love drinking my morning coffee out there when I to stay every now and then to experience what my guest do when they stay.. Love that you want to return....Harmony Cottage will welcome you back any time. You know Fall will be here before you know it......"hint hint" See you again.! THANKS for the 5 star review! Sandy

Owner's Response: Maryann, I am so happy you found Harmony Cottage to be the perfect place for your stay. When you said "comfy and homey" I knew you would really enjoy your get-away time in Franklin. Our little town has so much to offer for shopping, eating, visiting historic places, and, of course, the cottage is just right there within walking distance if you choose to walk downtown rather than drive. Thanks so much for the 5 star review and for sharing your experience at Harmony Cottage for future guests to read. That always means the most to owners of VRBO properties. I am looking forward to having you return for another visit so, once again ,Harmony Cottage can pamper you with another comfy, homey, stay!! Hurry back and have a a fantastic rest of the summer.
