About the property

5 Star Luxurious Cabin, On 21 Acre Wooded Property Including Pond And Treehouse

Escape to this beautiful private oasis where you have the ENTIRE property to yourself! There are no other guests there during your stay and the property is not hosted. Moonshine Hill is EXCLUSIVE and PERFECT for ONE family at a time or two couples, a reunion with close friends...Or romancing your favorite person!

Enjoy this 1,500 SF luxurious cabin which sleeps six. Upstairs there is a king size bed, with a luxurious soaking tub, plus a twin bedroom nook, and an twin sleeper sofa that opens up to a full size extra long Tempur-pedic twin bed, small office area, a laundry room and bay window lounge area.

Downstairs is a double bed, a bathroom with shower, a fully appointed kitchen, dining room and living room with huge stone fireplace. Every detail of this house is complete, it is appointed with the finest furnishings, fine art and luxurious linens while maintaining that cozy, comfortable country feel!

Step outside and the magic continues...there are many outdoor living areas: The front porch is flanked with two porch swings to watch the world pass by at a slower pace...the locals call it 'Leipers Fork Standard Time'. There is a beautiful outdoor patio with two large fire pits for songs in the round. Also, an extra large Big Green Egg for outdoor grilling.

Walk the grounds and you will see the large pond with a fountain that lights up at night, with a cedar log pavilion (covered in string lights) overlooking the pond for that lazy afternoon nap or sunset picnics.

Step into the speakeasy barn and take in the mural by a local artist that is a tribute to the Americana musicians of the region and the Nachez Trace.

There is also a log cabin a bit up the hill for a change of pace, or to host an intimate dinner party or a lively card game.

You will see that Leipers Fork keeps the Christmas Lights up all year long; and so does Moonshine Hill. You have the entire property to yourself, there are no other guest there.

There are numerous things to do in and around Leipers Fork, Franklin and Nashville so you will not be at a loss of activities, and at the end of the day you can come back to this serene escape!

Moonshine Hill is perfect for the romantic getaway weekend, honeymoon, anniversary, reunion for close friends but with the extra beds it can sleep 6 people comfortably.

Moonshine Hill is pet friendly!!! They can run all of their energy out through the hills here. Bring your furry friend we provide the bed. There is a non-refundable $100.00 pet fee per pet.

You will be hard pressed to find another luxury country cabin so close to all of these wonderful amenities, and also so beautiful that you won't want to leave! We love our guest and want to make everyone that visits us have a wonderful time during their stay at Moonshine Hill!

About Gloria and Richard Broming

Hi y'all, Gloria and Richard here! You know that excitement you felt when reading about and viewing the amazing pictures of Moonshine Hill? We felt the same way! We fell in love with this lil' piece of heaven from the moment we laid eyes on it. Even before we ever stepped foot on the property we knew we wanted to be a part of this wonderful place. Ann Johnson saw the beauty and potential of this property many years ago and spent years refurbishing and creating this charming oasis. We are pleased as punch to be the new owners of Moonshine Hill, but more so for our new friendship with Ann! Richard and I love music, growing food, cooking, fishing, hanging outdoors, and community. Moonshine Hill offers all of that, and we hope you will fall in love with it, just as we did! See you in the Fork!

Gloria and Richard Broming purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Gloria and Richard Broming chose Middle

We first came to Franklin 5 years ago and we fell in love with the area, open rolling pastures, wooded hillsides, and creeks, and ponds. Then the frosting on the cake was Leipers Fork's slow pace, live music, southern cuisine, and it stole our hearts, and it will yours too!

This property is truly a jewel. We found when looking for a place to rent to have our wedding celebration with family & friends . Our event was amazing and we made such wonderful memories that we will never forget.

Big thanks the the owners Richard & Gloria Broming and to Tammy & Stacy for all your help. I look forward to staying again some day...maybe for an anniversary.

Eclectic and stunning property, tucked away from reality on beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

This compound is magical. Gather all of your supplies because you won't want to leave...we didn't during our long weekend. The main house is decorated wonderfully and so comfortably. I highly recommend booking right now, you will not be disappointed whatsoever. And we are locals from Nashville! The owners are so kind and there for you at any moment.

Please experience Moonshine Hill Inn. You'll never forget your time spent there.

"...Grab you things I've come to take you home." - Peter Gabriel

  • 5 of 5

It’s been almost a month to the day since we celebrated our anniversary at Moonshine Hill. We have tried to write a review more than once but it’s hard to put into words the experience we had. We left our hearts on paper in the guest book on the last day of our stay. So I guess we’ll just have to encourage you all to go there and read it for yourselves. It’s really unlike any other place. We have traveled many places. Some have been expensive with all the top amenities in faraway places and some have been kitschy like the vintage Airstream trailer park in Bisbee, AZ, but none have left such a lasting impression on us like Moonshine Hill. The bar is set pretty high now for what “getting away” really means! Thank you to Gloria and Richard for sharing this gem with us. You made the process so easy and your property manager was so helpful in filling in all the little details. Everything was so comfortable and perfect down to the fresh strawberries she picked from the garden to the surprise flowers my husband ordered and she placed in the treehouse before our arrival. We fell in love with your town. Friendly faces everywhere. We hope there will be a hole in the calendar when we are ready to come back. Afraid the secret it out though, and it’ll be a once in a lifetime experience. Better once than never! Cheers – BNS

Owner's Response: We too have traveled from the high end to "glamping" and agree Moonshine Hill and Leipers Fork is like no other, always leaving you yearning for more. Happy Anniversary and hope you come back. Moonshine Hill will be waiting with new spaces to hang out and adventures! Cheers! Richard and Gloria

The Magical Moonshine Hill Inn

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to tell you, we adored your precious Moonshine Hill Inn. It is truly magical and we felt we can just stay forever, but I'm sure you have heard this before. Thank you for sharing your place from the bottom of our 💓. The house is exactly as described and more. We took notice of all the luxuries. The bedding was soft, the sheets were of high quality, the pillows are perfect to rest you head on. The bed itself is so beautiful. The bathroom has everything you need and then some. It's filled with natural, quality products for the hair and body, soft fluffy towels and robes are plentiful. Everything in the place was carefully thought out. The kitchen was a pleasure to work in. We even made some refreshing flavored water using the fresh limes supplied and the strawberry mint growing in the planter. It was just delicious. The property is an adventure. We captured our memories with beautiful photographs as we explored each special place, from the pavilion to the tree house and everything in between. We wouldn't want to give all its secrets away, we must leave some for all the others to find for themselves.

A very special thank you to the owners, Gloria and Richard, and to the property manager, all whom were very responsive, kind, and truly cared to make our stay wonderful. We are in awe of this house and wish that we can return someday! Bless this house and all that will enjoy it. It is truly special.

What an amazing place... the owners and manager are wonderful. The energy is incredible and the nostalgia feels cozy and warm. I got married here with a very few friends in attendance and it was something I will always remember as one of the highlights of my journey in life. Thank you for making my moment more special and for all your support! I highly recommend!
