Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Jewel of Franklin was perfect. Our group of 8 adults had more than enough room in this beautiful house. The kitchen was perfect for cooking meals and we were also able to dine all together in the dining room. The location was also great. We liked being able to walk to restaurants and shopping... plenty of antiques too. The owners were available during our stay for questions. We would definitely come back. Very close to Nashville too.

3 couples, head out for a visit to Franklin & Nashville, TN. Planned on short notice so choices were limited when looking, found this home that seemed perfect, who would have thought that perfect could get better!? This home, location & amenities went above & beyond all expectations. If it is ever available for your trip, book it immediately. Thanks to the Austins.

Great house-the perfect location in Franklin!

  • 4 of 5

Wow! This was the perfect home for our annual sister weekend. I'm so glad we chose this historic home for our stay. Plenty of room to spread out and the five of us each had a bathroom to ourselves! The beds and all the furnishings are comfortable and we had a lot of fun discovering all the spaces in the home. The location was perfect because could walk to antique shops, Kimbro's Pickin' Parlor, and the square. I hope we have a chance to visit again.
