About the property

The Franklin Creekside Cottage is located in a quiet mid-century neighborhood perfect for a couple's get-a-way made complete with a wonderfully relaxing, private pool area. Past guests have enjoyed using our home for larger family gatherings as our layout is great for a cookout/pool party. Please be sure to send us a message letting us know the number of people you're hoping to host as parking is limited.

***Please be sure to note that the nightly rates do not include state and local taxes totaling 17.25%, upon booking you will see these taxes added to your total due.***

During your stay we invite you to make use of and enjoy our entire home, the only areas off use are those that are locked. We think you will find the location is very private and quiet but only 5 minutes from downtown Franklin. Franklin is rich in history and there are numerous historic sights to visit throughout the Downtown Franklin area. Be sure to check out the Downtown Franklin events calendar to see what festivals may be going on during your stay. One of our favorite Downtown gems is the 1937 Franklin Theater which offers movies, concerts, plays and more. The Main Street antique shops are filled with a wonderful assortment of unique items. One of our most favorite shops is Scarlett & Scales Antiques/Home/Apparel on 2nd. Ave. It's packed full of treasures that you won't find anywhere else. The Historic Factory in Franklin has some great little shops, tasty restaurants, and a wonderful Saturday morning farmer's market. Harlinsdale Farm has walking trails, concert series, and a dog park. Be sure to check their website for details. Downtown Franklin restaurants are delicious! The ever famous Pucketts has live music every night. The Red Pony offers a great wine and cocktail menu as well as amazing food! And be sure to stop by The Bunganut Pig. They have live, outside music every night and great bands downstairs on the weekends (their burgers are delicious!) Whether you are here for a weekend or a week be sure to take us up on some of our recommendations. If you need help planning your trip we'd be happy to assist, just be sure to give us some advance notice. We hope you will see and experience why Franklin was voted the most charming town in Tennessee.

The home was much more spacious than we expected and was beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at how clean and well decorated this home was. We enjoyed meeting Sherrie soon after we arrived to check on us to see if we needed anything and offered some good tips on places to eat and visit during our stay. We spent a majority of our time there on the large deck and by the pool. The home was very well stocked with all necessities, and the beds were awesome. Safe neighborhood and enjoyed the peacefulness of the back yard.

Would highly recommend this property, and would definitely stay here again if we revisit the Nashville area.

Owner's Response: Gorden’s family are the most delightful people. They came from Wisconsin and Alabama and met here for time together. Dan brought his beautiful 1930s Ford and competed in a car show in Nashville. Had so much fun talking to everyone. They left the house in superb condition, I sure hope they come back for another visit, love the family history and their friendliness. So glad they enjoyed there stay and had family time together. We would recommend them to anyone hosting. So easy to communicate with. Next time they come to Franklin we would like to have dinner with them.....😋�......

Tennessee treasure!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was completely delighted with this home. Clean, comfortable, spacious and well appointed. It definitely lived up to its description. We were especially pleased with the kitchen. Traveling with food allergies can be quite challenging but this home had nearly every pot, pan, gadget, utensil or dish we could have needed and everything was in good shape. That was greatly appreciated.

Our family really enjoyed the pool and deck each day. The pool easily fit a family of five without feeling crowded. A perfect way to end each day.

The home is located 30-45 minutes away from nearly every point in Nashville we visited and is only minutes away from charming downtown Franklin. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends.

Thanks Sherrie and Bill!

Beautiful, spacious, and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

We rent houses often from VRBO around the country and we all agreed this was the nicest yet. It was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and homey without feeling like you were intruding someone else's personal space. Everything you needed was there and the outdoor space with a beautiful deck and pool was perfect for our stay. The beds were extremely comfortable the house was very spacious. We will definitely stay again when we are back in the area.
