Storybook Cottage is also horse friendly. Professionally decorated by Kim and David of City Farmhouse, Storybook Cottage has been featured in several publications.
Storybook Cottage sits on eight acres in Leiper's Fork, just a short scenic thirty minute drive south of Nashville in the best community in the area.

About Jamie Parsons
Hello! I'm Jamie, a Los Angeles native with a country heart. Ever since going to a family farm in South Dakota at 8 years old I have dreamed of owning a place where I could keep a couple horses, have some land, a gorgeous country view, a large front porch, and most of all, a place where I could host holidays and gatherings for all my family and friends. In Los Angeles I had spent years buying and remodeling or rebuilding homes. It was my passion, along with writing. Then the kids came, three of them, and they became my passion, along with writing. The kids are now 18, 17, and 12 and it was finally time to find my dream home and in July 2016 I became the proud owner of The Big Blue House. The kids and I absolutely loved spending time there but we were still only part-timers. I began renting it out as a vacation rental when we were in California and got such joy out of sharing the home with so many fabulous folks from all over the world that I bought another one....enter Storybook Cottage! This process has become an ongoing dream come true for me. I truly hope you feel the same magic I feel every time I drive up the gravel drives of both The Big Blue House and Storybook Cottage. Cheers! Jamie

Why Jamie Parsons chose Williamson County
Storybook Cottage is simply magical. Not only am I a huge fan and friend of City Farmhouse who decorated this cottage so exquisitely, but the surrounding eight wooded acres simply make me sigh in awe of their beauty. Here's a quick story of how I first saw this cottage. Years and years ago I tore out a photo from a magazine with painted checkerboard hardwood floors. I had always wanted floors like that and I still have the magazine tear today. Then a couple years ago while thumbing through Country Living magazine I saw almost identical floors again! It was Storybook Cottage. So between the land, the decor, the floors, and a location that I utterly adore, it was a no brainer for me. Love at first sight.

Wonderful Getaway Cottage
What a wonderful experience. The picturesque cottage was even more perfect than the pictures. Clean, charming, extremely comfortable and perfect for couples looking for romantic getaway. The beauty of the area and the friendly locals in quirky Leipers Fork just added to the experience. Thanks so much!
Lovely and cozy!
We enjoyed our experience at the cottage! I loved the comfort of the furniture, linens, all the cozy blankets, and the sweet style. It was a great place for us to call home for 3 days!
Perfect little cottage in a quiet location!
Loved everything about the cottage, with one tiny hiccup. When I checked in the cottage was so dark I couldn’t find it! It would be nice if a light were on or theee was a hint on a landmark to look for when coming for the first time! That was such a small issue compared to the MARVELOUS, charming, immaculate cottage that was my home for 5 days. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked, and the surroundings delightful. I come to Nashville often and I will be back! Thank you for your hospitality! I could have stayed forever!
Had a nice stay at Storybook! Antiques with neutral colors. Modern conveniences. Unfortunately too cold to enjoy beautiful screened porch. Bathroom definitely needs better lighting. Great location with a beautiful short drive to Leipers Fork and Franklin.
This is such a unique and charming property! Fantastic location, all the amenities you need, and beautifully decorated. Thanks for your hospitality!
It was truly a story book cottage.
Charmingly decorated!!! Beautiful property set back off the Natchez Trace. Perfect location 4 miles from Leipers Fork and 15 minutes from downtown Franklin. We wanted for nothing. Perfect 5 star rental. Highly recommended.
Thank you for being such an excellent guest and of course for all of your kind words! We hope to have you back in the future!
