Hummingbird Haven is tucked off a secluded, dirt, back-road. This log cabin, build in 1952, is peaceful and quiet. Birds entertain as you have morning coffee on the screened in porch. In the evening, watch lightning bugs dance. A haven with comforts of a forgotten time, and some modern amenities - just enough to be comfortable. There is endless hot water, an indoor bathroom, fresh spring water from the tap, a full kitchen, but no TV. Cell phone and internet usage are limited. Some phones have a bar or two on the corner of the porch, otherwise, phones work in the hayfield, or at the end of the drive. Hummingbird Haven invites you to disconnect and slow down for a moment. Take a break from hustle and bustle, walk back in time when life didn't move so fast. Leave feeling rested and happy about unexpected delights of your time here. Civilization isn't so distant. We are just 30 miles from downtown Nashville, 15 miles from historic Franklin, 10 miles from charming Leipers Fork, and 4 miles from the grocery in Fairview. This area, Fernvale, was once known as a much sought-after retreat. . We can promise hummingbirds. We do our best to create the experience you hope for when you take a holiday. For cyclists, we are 8 miles from the Natchez Trace. We have safe parking for your vehicle while you enjoy your ride. We hope you will come visit, time and time again.

Why Daisy Jabas or Tony Vincent chose Fairview
Not fancy, but clean. Old fashioned, allows for a time to reconnect, to family, friends, yourself, and the quiet joy of life. A low stress community, where neighbors are friends. Limited internet and phone service does make it easier to disconnect. (There may be a little reception on a corner of the porch. There is good reception at the end of the drive).
What makes this Cabin unique
An entire log cabin to yourself, with only birds to wake you. The cat probably will ignore you. Innkeepers that are ever so happy to make sure you have what you need, as well as to sit on the porch and talk.

Very unique quiet restful place to stay
We had a perfect 3 night stay here. It rained the entire time we were here, but the screened in porch was where we happily spent our time. Birdfeeders brought in hummingbirds, doves and cardinals - even in the rain - and listening to the rain while sleeping is always nice. It is an old log cabin full of history, creaky floors and charm. We loved it. The bed is new and very comfortable. It is close to Leipers Fork and about 20 minutes to Franklin. The countryside is beautiful. This cabin is in a very special location and we are happy we found it.
Enjoyed you and Mike staying with us. It finally stopped raining, and the sun came out today (Friday). The birds seem to not mind the rain, though most of the hummingbirds have left for their winter habitats in Mexico & Central America. Amazing to me that they fly that far on those little wings. Well, time to get wood in for the winter, as it was actually 60 degrees this morning. Mike, too, for your Michigan cabin.
All the best,
We enjoyed the property, humming birds were entertaining, Patches was polite and playful. This would be a place we definitely would return to without question. Tony was pleasant and courteous...Daisy left yummy biscuits and scones for us and the tiny bottles with fresh flowers were so appealing. The quiet nights where you can hear the water in the stream was so relaxing. Perfect location from Nashville. We were sad to leave. Thank you for sharing your peaceful paradise with us. Until next time....
Jo and Jeff,
Thanks for staying with us. Enjoyed getting to know you a bit. Hope you and your 'kids' return.
The best kind of paradox!
Rustic, yet comfortable. Secluded, but close enough for exploring many towns, both small (Franklin, Leiper's Fork, etc.) and large (Nashville). Daisy and Tony were friendly, but not intrusive, and stocked the cabin with many appreciated amenities and extras. We'd love to come stay again, and had a wonderful time -- no paradox there. Thanks!
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We enjoyed meeting you both, and appreciated you're leaving our place so neat. Happy that Zoocy & Cooper had a good time, as well.
Hopefully, we'll see you again.
Very charming rustic cabin off the beaten path
We enjoyed our stay at the Hummingbird Haven. Lovely location, homemade biscuits, gracious host. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Mary Francis was a wonderful and friendly guest who left our B&B as clean and neat as she found it. She and John were a delight to get to know.
Sweet, peaceful and clean cabin
My stay at Hummingbird Haven was renewing for my tired spirit. After a long road trip, being told, "the key is in the door", then walking in to the lights on and many touches that said "we are glad you're here" is a rare find in overnight rentals. Daisy and Tony are refreshing fun loving people. I will definitely return!
I can't believe that we didn't answer your lovely review. Thank you. Our goal is to have our guests rest and renew. We hope you will come again. Daisy
SWEET COTTAGE ON THE HILL
My husband and I absolutely loved our weekend at Hummingbird Haven. It was the perfect country setting for our 20th wedding anniversary. We spent most of our time on the screened in porch looking at the beautiful nature all around. Fresh eggs, juice, milk, fruit, coffee and biscuits were waiting for us in the fridge and the wild flowers placed throughout the cottage was such a sweet touch. We walked the property and found Daisy working in her garden, more then willing to stop and give us a tour (and some fresh broccoli !!) We will absolutely be coming back. Kim & Philip Davis (Franklin, TN)
Thank you for your kind review. It validates us, as we want you and our other guests to feel special and enjoy our place as much as we do.
We had no idea you chose Hummingbird Haven to celebrate your anniversary. We are honored that you did.
Congratulations, and hope to see you again.
