About Damon Rogers

Welcome! We are Damon and Mark Rogers, the grateful custodians of Damon's family home where we retired in 2000 after 30 years of Navy life. Mark is a retired Naval Officer, and we have been very fortunate to have lived and travelled all over the world.

The family home was built in 1919 and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) and Captains Quarters, two of our rental properties located behind the Big House, were originally built in 1970 as a guest home and office suite.

Much of the surroundings you'll see when staying at one of our vacation rentals in Franklin have been gradually collected during our Navy years and represent our strong Southern heritage and love of antiques.

Damon Rogers purchased this studio in 1919

Why Damon Rogers chose Middle

Originally built as an office suite behind the original 1919 historic family home, you will be amazed at the beautiful conversion from a spacious office suite into an elegant studio apartment. This 800 square foot apartment boasts "brand new everything" with the exception of the family antiques and collected prints throughout.

The original office has become the elegantly-appointed living room, and the king size bed and kitchen nook are just two of many reasons to stay at Captains Quarters. The original powder room has become a fully stocked galley kitchen with microwave, doll-sized oven and stove (so precious!), 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, Italian dishes and serving pieces, and plenty of pots, pans, pyrex and cooking utensils to cook the day away.

In what was once the adjoining storage room has now become a fully-tiled bathroom with tub/shower combination and houses a spacious walk in closet and separate laundry room!

The outside welcomes you with a sweet front porch, window boxes, and seasonal plants contained in wrought iron planters passed down for generations. Walk around to the side yard and enjoy badminton, corn hole or the fire pit with ample wood supplied. Relax in the common patio area or cook on the outdoor gas grill located on the outside patio.

This elegant studio is such a must see piece of real estate in charming Franklin, TN that we often joke about wanting to move in ourselves!

What makes this studio unique

I (Damon) pride myself on being a preservationist and believe in repurposing from old buildings. Shutters throughout the studio came from the basement of my family home, and the Civil War era window grills were bought from a friend after a historic home was demolished.

Both Captains Quarters (VRBO Listing #497691) and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) can be rented to accommodate up to 6 people! For extensive details of the three properties we own in historic Franklin.

Loved our comfortable stay at the charming Captain's Quarters!

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment is beautifully decorated, cozy, impeccably clean, and quiet. The king size bed was divinely comfortable. The gracious hosts provided many unexpected amenities such as small toiletries, fresh banana bread, coffee, & candy to welcome us to their lovely property. The rental is conveniently located to fun Historical Downtown Franklin, where we explored the shops and ate at some of the many nice restaurants. We sat often on the rocking chairs at our front stoop (which faces the back of owner family's home) to admire the spacious, beautiful yard of the property with its many available seating areas. The property owners live on site, and we enjoyed our short conversations in passing as coming or going. They were very welcoming & helpful, but never intrusive. Only small disappointment was that, although described as available for our use, there is no direct or easy access from within the studio unit to the large back patio shown in photos of this property. However, that patio is directly accessible from within the adjoining General's Retreat unit (#496793). We were shown the inside of the also lovely & larger General's Retreat, and we encourage other travelers to consider either unit as their home away from home. We have family in Franklin, and we will return with hope to avail again of the Rogers family's excellent southern hospitality!

Loved the little place and the hosts were great. Enjoyed my 3 night stay for business. Franklin is a wonderful town and close enough to Nashville that it was easy to get up there.

We enjoyed our three night stay at this Franklin property. Everything from the size, amenities, and comfortable bed made for such an enjoyable stay. Location is excellent from shopping downtown, heading to Nashville or browsing Liepers Fork. Will definitely return to this quiet retreat!

Whether you walk, drive or catch the Franklin Trolley, you are easily accessible to Carnton Plantation, The Carter House, The Lotz House, movies or live entertainment at the Franklin Theater, shopping, antiquing or sightseeing. Museum tours, bike tours, and ghost tours are abundant or walk a block to Jim Warren Park for fresh air and sunshine. Jim Warren also boasts a Skate Park!

If you are a foodie, you will be pleased as there are numerous privately owned restaurants within walking distance. For the wine aficionado, Arrington Vineyards is but a short car drive along picturesque country roads, or enjoy our quaint country neighbor, Leiper's Fork, where you can pick up the Natchez Trace Parkway and head into Nashville for another full day adventure.

Those of us living in Franklin boast that "we are 15 miles south and 100 years down the road from Nashville." A 30 minute drive gets you to 'Music City USA'! Franklin has been mentioned in major publications like Southern Living, CNN, Money Magazine, Forbes, and Business Week as one of the best places to live, work, and visit in the entire country, and Captains Quarters is centrally located in the historic district of Franklin - home to 150 places to explore that are on the National Registry.
