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

Great location and place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here and it was so clean and perfect for our group. Hadn't one person sleep on the pullout bed and t was great especially with an extra 1/2 bath. The privacy off the street was nice along with a pretty yard.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was in a perfect location within walking distance to a park for our dogs and a block to Main Street for great restaurants and shops. Susan was there to greet us upon arrival and was very friendly! We can't wait to visit again!

Perfect Place, Perfect Host

  • 5 of 5

After a week away, wow, are we happy. First trip to Franklin and found Susan and her guest cottage. A block or two to great food, great music, great shopping, friendly people. This is a cottage that is perfect for a couple. Quaint, very clean, well equipped, cool furnishings, king bed, quiet...definitely more like a home than a rental. And, Susan is just delightful. From first contact to the way out of town, she made sure to offer friendly advice, warm greetings, help when needed, and of course a smile. She made the guest cottage more special. This is a charming place you won't be disappointed in. No reason to stay closer to Nashville when you get all this.

Loved our stay at Susan's cottage! Perfect location with walking access to downtown Franklin and all the places you want to visit. Very clean, comfortable with everything you need, a true home away from home. Susan is an excellent hostess! Wonderful weekend, we have found our new second home and shall return.

The cottage was not only clean. It was SPOTLESS! A perfect location. We parked our car and easily walked the lovely town of Franklin. When we're in Nashville/Franklin, we'll try to return. Susan was a warm and gracious host
