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

Why Susan Comer chose Franklin

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is the most wonderful feature of

The Franklin Guest House! The guest house is within moments of Main Street. Our home is next door, and when my children were quite young; they were allowed to go to the shopping/dining area of Franklin by themselves. (Back then you could buy fried rice for 99 cents, plus Gray's Drugstore had penny candy!) Such a sweet place to raise a family! Even though stores have changed, the location is still the same.

What makes this cottage unique

Come experience true Middle Tennessee living at our guest house which provides multiple benefits for any guest. Staying in the heart of Historic Downtown Franklin lends itself to many fun activities. The coziness of the guest house provides a romantic getaway or a relaxing stay. Staying five minutes from the interstate, and less than thirty minutes from downtown Nashville allows easy access to Music City. Whether your vacationing desires are to nestle into a quiet retreat or to be out and active this home is the place for you!

From the moment you walk in, that Tennessee southern charm surrounds you. The cottage is perfect, has everything you will need during your stay. The little basket of "extras" in the kitchen was so welcoming. The cottage is in an excellent location to explore Franklin on foot. It has all the amenities you could ask for, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and very comfortable furnishings. We will definitely make this our future stays when visiting Franklin.

This is the perfect place in the perfect location. Susan was very helpful and kind and the guest house was everything as advertised and then some. We have stayed at a number of VRBO's and this was one of our favorites. We will definitely be back.

A Great Mother-Daughter Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed with Susan for a week. The accommodations were absolutely perfect for what we needed! We enjoyed exploring the area and Susan was great to work with! We hope to return! Only down-fall was that we had to leave a day early because of snowy/icy weather!

Perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly greeted by the property owner & made ourselves right at home. The cottage had plenty of space for my fiance and me (and our dog.) It was clean, quiet, the bed was very comfortable & the kitchen had everything we needed. We will recommend this cottage to friends visiting Franklin & will definitely stay again. Places like this demonstrate the true charm of the Franklin where I grew up.

I stayed 2 nights for a business trip - the cottage was clean and perfect for what I needed. Susan was very thoughtful in checking in on me and making sure I had everything I needed. I loved being in walking distance to everything in old town Franklin - I will definitely come back!
