About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 - 4

Nestled in the original five block square of Historic Downtown Franklin, you will be able to walk to the Square, the Franklin Theater, and all the charm of Main Street in less than five minutes. It is faster to walk than to drive! Truly, one of the most convenient locations available. The Franklin Guest House is a converted garage that has been renovated into a delightful guest house. The bedroom provides a peaceful night's sleep with its king size bed. Adjoining the bedroom is a full bath with a shower and jetted soaking tub combination. There is a fully equipped and updated kitchen with granite counter tops and tile backsplash. The dining area and living room's cathedral ceiling and skylights give this room an aura of beauty and warmth, and the sleeper sofa will accommodate two more guests! For your use, you will also find a new Whirlpool front loading washing machine and a front loading dryer. There is an extra 1/2 bathroom off the living area. This guest house is a one of a kind! From its lovely decor to its convenient location, you will find that your new home away from home exemplifies the graciousness of Franklin, Tennessee!

About Susan Comer

Our family loved Franklin, Tennessee before Garden and Gun Magazine named Franklin 'The Best Southern Town' or Southern Living Magazine ranked Franklin on their top 'Best Places List'. In fact, we have lived here for over 150 years, and my great great grandparents lived just a block away from our guesthouse during The Battle of Franklin! For generations we have known that Franklin was an extraordinary place, and we are proud to call it home!

Susan Comer purchased this cottage in 2000

Lovely property; ideal location for exploring downtown Franklin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house. The kitchen is very well equipped (even though we only made breakfast there and went out for dinner). The house is a lovely home away from home and it's only a couple of minutes' walk to downtown Franklin so the location is ideal for exploring Franklin.

Susan met us when we arrived and was a very welcoming hostess.

If you're planning a visit to Franklin we would recommend staying at the Franklin Guest House.

Close to everything. So comfortable and clean. What a neat town to visit. Much nicer than an overpriced hotel room.

Can't beat the location

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two kids <10 years old) have now stayed at the Guest House on two separate trips, so that should tell you something. Downtown Franklin is a gem, and the Guest House allows you park your car, get settled in, and then take a very short walk to all of the shops and restaurants. To the extent you are also going to downtown Nashville for anything, it's a pretty short drive with some scenic routes available. After a day of activities, it was nice to return to the Guest House to unwind and contemplate where we wanted to walk to for a meal.

The house itself was a great size for my family in addition to being clean and well-maintained. The owner, Susan, has done a nice job making the house comfortable with all of the things we needed during our stays. The kitchen is small but has everything you'd need to cook (though we tend not to) if you wanted to prepare some of your meals. I also think it was nice to get both a full bath and a half-bath in a house of this size.

Susan has been a pleasure to deal with both online and in person. She greeted us on arrival to make sure we had everything we needed, has offered us recommendations on places to go when we asked her, and she was nice enough to remember my kids and some of the things we did on our prior trip when we saw her a year later. If a great rental property is a combination of great location, a clean & comfortable house, and a nice owner, the Guest House is three for three.
