The 5 acre property has lots of trees & privacy to make it feel like an absolute retreat. The Fold is a short 8 minute drive to the brand new Fairview Publix & 5 minutes from Bowie Nature Park.

The Fold at Forrest Glenn is a vacation rental that doubles as a retreat space for local songwriters in the Nashville Area. Retreats & Workshops happen here throughout the year so we take great pride in having a beautiful and comfortable space that can fulfill any & all of your accommodations.

The home is located on 5 beautiful acres and is tucked away off the road with lots of privacy. You will be close to town with the feel of being in the middle of the country.

There is not indoor access to the basement other than the elevator but you can walk around to the basement from the outside. There are three floors with 5 total bedrooms. Each bedroom sleeps 2 or more people as well as a pull-out couch in the upstairs bunk-bed room. Please tell us the number of guests you will have in your party before booking.

You can Check-In at Forrest Glenn without host interaction. There is a wireless keypad that will have an access code we will create just for you! However, we are always available for questions, concerns or if you need anything.

We live just a short distance from the home and can be there if anything should come up.

About Thomas & Leslie Jordan / Chris & Brea DeTray

We are Leslie & Thomas Jordan and we live in Franklin, TN (just south of Nashville) where I (Leslie) work in the music industry and my husband is a high school teacher. I travel for a living so it's not often that we get away just the two of us, but when we do we love using VRBO.

We are grateful for the hospitality we've been offered in the past through VRBO and are now thrilled to be HOSTS of The Fold at Forrest Glenn.

Together with our co-owners & business partners, Chris & Brea DeTray, we run a non-profit in Nashville for writers and songwriters. The Fold at Forrest Glenn doubles as a retreat space for our non-profit when it is not being rented through VRBO.

We really look forward to hosting you the next time you are in the Nashville/Franklin area!

Why Thomas & Leslie Jordan / Chris & Brea DeTray chose Fairview

We purchased this BEAUTIFUL Log Home in Fairview, TN in 2017 as a vacation rental that doubles as a Retreat Space for our non-profit, The Fold.

This property had everything we could dream of from 5 secluded & wooded acres, to serene views, comfortable porches, and enough room to house retreaters & vacationers!

We fell in love with The Fold at Forest Glenn as soon as we saw it, and we hope you do too!

What makes this house unique

The Fold at Forest Glenn is unique in the Fairview Area sitting on 5 gorgeous acres of land. It is only 8 minutes from the closest grocery store (Publix Fairview) but it feels like you are tucked away in the mountains.

The Log House was built with love and true craftsmanship as you can see from the hand-hewn beams and walls. The fenced-in back yard is a perfect setting for events & reunions.

Take a walk around the property or drink a cup of coffee sitting on the front porch while watching the birds! The Fold at Forest Glenn is the perfect setting for your next Nashville-area getaway!

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect setup for a big family! There was plenty of privacy but also a lot of nice areas where everyone could spend time together. The scenery was beautiful and so close to the shops in Franklin, TN. It was hands down one of the best vacations I’ve had in a while.

Great Place to Make Lasting Memories with Good Friends

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely! Decor and finishes were beautiful.

The master bed and bath were spacious. The rest of the bedrooms were large and could accommodate two adults.

The patio was a wonderful place to gather in the evening with the fire pit and hanging lights. The porch was well maintained and great place to eat breakfast/ gather as well.

The kitchen had sufficient mixing bowls, pots pans, and kitchen utensils for any amateur cook. Surprisingly, the kitchen had supplies to make pour over coffee which was a delight.

We had a wonderful time sitting around the large round table playing card games and dining together. The round table fit 10 adults easily.

The downstairs bedroom could be a little tricky to get to because the only internal way to get there was with the elevator. Once you have the hang of how to use the elevator then it becomes easier.

The indoor stereo system was nice and easy to use. The television upstairs was a bit tricky to use because instructions were missing.

Hosts were responsive and easy to communicate with for any questions.

We had a fabulous time staying at this home and made many lasting memories with our good friends.

A wonderful cabin for a large family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

There was everything we needed - pots, pans, bowls, plates, glasses, towels etc. There were toys for my toddler grandchildren to play with in the basement. It was a safe place for the little ones to play. Overall a very pleasant experience!
