Come and relax in this beautiful country side where life is a little simpler, people are kinder and the grass truly is greener.

This barn loft apartment is an open floor plan with just over 700 square feet of room to enjoy. 'THERE IS NO KITCHEN'. Two (2) Queen size beds are available as well as (1) inflatable raised queen bed and a sofa to sleep on. The BATHROOM has a shower and no bathtub. There is a bean bag bed full size for children only. Large windows overlook the horse paddocks on both ends where you can watch our horses roam and relax in the sunshine.

Accommodations are comfortable and serene as the farm is located on a dead end street with little traffic. Restaurants are within a few minutes from the farm as well as shopping and entertainment. Stay put and relax or venture out into the County for sight seeing and adventure.

Visit our small village Leipers Fork and enjoy shopping at our antique stores, browse our art galleries where local artists are displayed and then dine in our cafe and restaurants.

Thursday in Leipers is open mic night and creole shrimp boil, Friday and Saturday nights offer dinner and shows, reservations advised if possible.

You don't have to own or travel with your horse to stay. You are free to enjoy the sight of our little herd out in the fields. If you chose to you may have a private horseback riding lesson taught by Kirstin. She has been teaching adults and children to ride for over 10 years and is exceptional at helping those intimidated learn the love of horses.

Also provided by appointment is our personal growth/therapy sessions that use Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. We are trained and Internationally certified through EAGALA for this. You may read more information at our website provided on the first page.

About Kirstin Mason

Chose this area to raise my daughter because of the beauty of the land, kindness of residents and peaceful surroundings. Originally from the northeast settled in Tennessee back in the early 1980's because of the kindness of the people and the beauty of the land. Life long horse owner/lover who likes to share her sanctuary with others.

Providing a unique service to the middle Tennessee area of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is my honor. The only private practice in middle TN providing this service.

Kirstin Mason purchased this barn in 2002

Why Kirstin Mason chose Middle

Quiet, serene, peaceful all while being in the great outdoors and close to a major city. Could not imagine living any other place because of the surroundings, the people and the weather. Hiking on the Natchez Trace is right around the corner from the farm.

What makes this barn unique

Having dogs and horses at your finger tips if wanted or just to view. If not you just enjoy your stay and ignore them. Though Avery (border collie) may ask you to play over and over again. Having coffee on the deck in the morning is a favorite pastime. Many enjoy the energy here as it is so serene.

Owner's Response: Ginette it was nice to welcome you and your family back to the farm. So glad it worked out where I could teach the girls twice while you were here. They did great by the way. Take care and I will see you when you are back in this area seeing your Son and his family again. Thanks. Kirstin

Beautiful farm, comfortable and cozy loft!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the cutest dog, Avery who showed us the way. We were delighted to see how large and spacious the loft was. Pictures do not do it justice. It was very clean, well decorated and felt just like home. Views from the large deck are the best for coffee in the morning and a drink at night. Everything was provided we could possibly need. Kirstin was so nice, had time for a chat and gave us tips of where to go and what things to do. We will definitely be back to stay soon!

Owner's Response: I submitted this for two travelers who wrote in my guest book but could not figure out how to do the online review. They were lovely guests just not tech savvy and asked I submit this for them. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Shannon as usual I am always happy to welcome all the girls from Michigan back to the farm. I shared the local beer you gave me with my Farrier after he trimmed hooves on a hot day. He was very grateful and complimented your brewery. Thanks again, it was lovely to see you all. Have a great school year. Kirstin
