Guest access

everything en suite. This space has a private entry and is a private space with no shared spaces. However, being a former garage, it is attached to the main house. The shared door is dead-bolted on host's side, and there is a chain lock on the guest's side for added security.

Guest interaction

Having been a transplant to the area myself, I have had the good pleasure of playing tour guide for much of my family and friends when they come visit. I can recommend places to eat, things to see and things to do, in Franklin and the vicinity. I am available to answer as many questions you may have, or if you prefer, just leave you to enjoy our beautiful city!

Neighborhood overview

located in Heath Place, just outside the historic downtown core. Carnton Lane is the original road that once led to the beautiful Carnton plantation. Walk the short distance down our street to the Eastern Flank Battlefield and visit the confederate cemetery and tour the Plantation and its extensive grounds.

Getting around

The plantation is within walking distance, however the rest of the surrounding areas are best visited via car, as the sidewalks start halfway between the cottage and the downtown core. Distance from the cottage to downtown Franklin destinations is about 6 min by car. Franklin has ample free parking both on the street, a lot behind Starbucks and within 2 free parking garages.

                                                    Fabulous Property and Host

                                                    Debra Y.Madison, GA

                                                    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Light Suite, conveniently located in quiet, beautiful neighborhood and home. Love that the unit had a separate, private entrance from the house. Sparkling clean and well decorated. Erin was a lovely and perfect host, not intrusive and readily available when needed. I hate to leave such a positive review - I don't want everyone else discovering this sweet gem in Franklin and risk it being booked next time we need to visit. But that wouldn't be fair to other travelers needing a perfect place to stay. Look forward to returning again some day soon. Thanks Erin for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
