About the property

Three bed, Two Bath Single Story home set on 6 acres

The Cozy Cottage is perfectly located just 5 miles away from historic downtown Franklin, TN and minutes from beautiful Leiper’s fork. Nestled on an 6 acre property, the cottage offers a country experience while just a short jaunt from town. It is only a 30 minute drive into downtown Nashville and offers a perfect retreat for musicians looking for some peace, just outside of Music City USA. You can enjoy a camp fire in the backyard firepit, surrounded by benches crafted from wood harvested on the property, or take a nap on the covered front porch on the suspended bed swing while listening to the birds in the surrounding stately maple trees. When you are feeling brave, you can explore the historic cemetery on the property, featuring a revolutionary war veteran who was likely granted this land as a payment for his service. Or, imagine the history of the valley which is a stone’s throw away from the Civil War battle site for the city of Franklin.

The Cozy Cottage is a ranch style home that has been recently renovated and completely updated. An open concept kitchen blends seamlessly into a hearth room which contains a sleeper sofa to allow for larger parties in front of a stylish ship-lapped fireplace. The dining room contains a large table to accommodate your party or you can or enjoy a snack at the kitchen island which was built from an elm tree that was harvested on the property. The little touches abound in this wonderfully decorated home. The three bedrooms allow you to have a large group or family stay in comfort. The cottage offers plenty of space, but still feels very cozy.

Why Lyza chose Franklin

Location, location, location! The Cozy Cottage is perfectly situated extremely close to historic downtown Franklin and Leiper's Fork. It's in the country with all the great rural feel that entails, but you are just minutes from great dining and entertainment as well as the conveniences of town.

What makes this house unique

The small details scattered through the Cozy Cottage really make it a special place. It all comes together to make for an inviting place where you can be comfortable and enjoy your time. Guests often comment that they wake up earlier than usual here, but feel more rested. Taking an early morning coffee on the patio or enjoying a drink at sunset around the firepit are our personal favorites. Sitting in the front porch swing and watching a farm tractor drive down the road or hearing a donkey call in distance really makes you feel like you are a part of a rural scene that has existed here for generations.

Awesome experience

Cozy home away from it all but close enough to Downtown Franklin and Nashville to enjoy the big city life but far enough for great relaxation.

The owners were so helpful and sweet! The home was ADORABLE and comfortable. We would stay there again and plan to. It was close enough to town yet far enough out to enjoy the fresh country air.

Loved it!

Cozy, comfortable, beautifully decorated and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I visit the area every year and this year we decided to visit in October and celebrate our 33rd Anniversary. We had a late check in and we were so happy that lights were on for us and we found a beautiful bottle of bubbly with a Happy Anniversary note when we entered the home. The Cozy Cottage was perfect for us. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated in the style we love! The rooms are spacious and the King bed in the master room is very comfortable. The coffee that the owners supplied was delicious and very appreciated. It was one of our shorter stays so we only cooked one night and grilled on the patio. The other evenings we enjoyed eating at our favorite restaurants and we visited friends who live just down the road. We enjoyed the fire pit and had fun just sitting with a glass of wine and enjoying the calm evening. The house came with ingredients to make s'mores so we most certainly enjoyed that. The grave yard was fascinating to us. As we walked and looked at the headstones we couldn't help but wonder what type of lives those souls had. It was amazing that there was a soldier buried there from the Revolutionary war and he died in 1775. So much history! The front porch renders a fabulous porch swing and amazing views.

The location of the cottage is fantastic, it is just a few minutes to all the restaurants and shops in downtown Franklin and the village of Leipers Fork, two of our favorite destinations. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they were so welcoming and friendly. We would most definitely like to rent this cottage again and bring our family. We give the Cozy Cottage 5 plus Stars!

The Cozy Cottage is located just minutes from historic downtown Franklin, TN and is situated very near the destination rural hamlet of Leipers Fork, TN. This is the perfect location for someone that wants to get away to the country while still maintaining ready access to all that town has to offer.

You can catch live music close by any night of the week or take the short trip into Nashville to see your favorite show. It's amazing to happen into a random place in this area and find a live performance from someone you've never heard of that is really talented. Bad music doesn't really seem to be present around Music City.

The restaurants in downtown Franklin offer everything from simple family fare to higher end dining and if you are interested in the farm to table concept be sure to check out our personal local favorite, Homestead Manor, in close by Thompson's Station. Kids and adults alike will enjoy a great meal in one of their themed rooms. Our favorite place to eat is in the glass enclosed bar. Be sure to take a walk around the grounds and see their chicken flock and garden or happen by the weekly farmer's market that happens on site.
