A truly stunning historic cottage by White's Mercantile Room and Board! This is the only nightly rental available in the heart of Leiper's Fork village, walk to everything! Built in 1892 for the Carl Sweeney family, these walls and rooms are brimming with stories. Happiness and tragedy, laughter and tears, and generations who loved and lost and lived there.
I have truly enjoyed working on the redemption of this home during the renovation phase and always preserving where I can to let the history shine through this gem. I want to welcome songwriters searching for a creative getaway, families and couples craving quiet and restorative time for themselves, artists needing new inspirations, and anyone wanting to escape for a few days inside inside a warm, curated and welcoming space to find a little peace and clarity from our modern and frantic everyday life! I hope you will make truly amazing memories here that will stay close to your heart...
Featuring a queen bed upstairs in the master, another queen bed in a smaller adjacent room separated by a single original historic door, and a trundle bed downstairs that accommodates 2 twin mattresses for side by side sleeping, up to 6 people can sleep here!
The original 1892 entry doors are painted a calming pink in contrast to the original black screen doors. The tiny, chic kitchen is equipped with everything one could ever need to make a great meal! From the fabulous mint green Smeg refrigerator, to the bertazzoni Italian stove, this is a cook's dream!! The bathroom features a tub deep enough to soak in, and a handheld shower kit, along with a fabulous brass console sink and faucet. The farm table seats up to 8 in the dining room clad with antique plates and mirrors. There is a stackable washer and dryer for any laundry you may need to do! Feel free to bring your furry friend, Harry Barker dog beds which are available at my general store (White's Mercantile) are in the living room for them to get their rest! 2 Gibson guitars are inside awaiting your musical skills, and the fire pit in the back with 6 chairs to accommodate is the perfect place for s'mores or star gazing.
Walk to town for live music at historic Puckett's Grocery, find incredible antiques and a handful of restaurants to keep you moving, then pray for rain to sing you to sleep on the original tin roof of this unbelievably charming home! Only 8 miles to Franklin and 26 miles to Nashville, the day trip options are absolutely endless! When you book the home we will send you my travel guide to keep you on your toes while exploring all that we have to offer down here in Tennessee! Enjoy...

The perfect getaway
The cottage is located right in the heart of leipers fork. We had an amazing stay - shopped around, visited the galleries, listened to live music, enjoyed the indooor fireplace at the cottage and also made a bonfire in the backyard fire pit. The kitchen was a dream to cook in.
The house is cozy and sweet. Perfect modern mixed with historic details to make you feel right at home.
We will be booking the cottage again this fall and we can not wait!!!
Historic feel, modern amenities, and prime location
The pictures don’t do this place justice. It is beautifully decorated, and it’s larger than it looks. There’s a big sectional couch and chairs with a remote controlled fireplace in the living room; plenty of seating and natural light. The dining room has a long table with plenty of seating, also a nice dimmable chandelier. The kitchen has a large sink and is filled with all the necessary wares, and a sitting area just outside it. There’s a closet with board and card games. The beds and bedding are new and comfortable. Plenty of fresh towels and luxury toiletries. The deck has a nice porch swing that faces the street and there’s also a firepit area outback. The location is literally steps away from everything in Leipers Fork. Puckett’s, The Country Boy, shopping, etc. 5 stars, it was perfect. We will stay again.
