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 Franklin

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!

Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

One of the best trips I ever made. The pictures do not do this place justice. I have to give the owner's props, they pay attention to the smallest of detail. I enjoyed discovering new hidden treasures throughout the cabin and property daily. I look forward to coming back to this paradise in the future.

Heaven on earth in TN!

  • 5 of 5

Four best friends on their annual girls trip could not have found a more heavenly place to go! The surroundings were beautiful and the cabin was above and beyond what we had hoped for. We never left the premises on Saturday...stayed there to read, sit by the pond, sit on the porch swings, stay in pjs til lunch and build a huge fire in the firepit that evening. We even got to pick fresh lettuce, tomatoes and peppers for our lunch out of the garden on the premises. We were mesmerized by the beauty and how considerate the owners were of our needs...fresh fruit on our arrival..fresh coffee for our use and other items in the fridge for our use! They thought of everything we would need. We will most definitely go back!!,

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.
