About Julie Peeler

We are two couples, a sister and brother with spouses/good friends, that decided to venture into the vacation rental business together. We are native Franklin residents and love showing off our unique town. We hope that staying at Academy House makes your experience here one to remember.

What makes this bungalow unique

Academy house is special to us first because it is located across the street from where the two guys in our group went to high school, Battle Ground Academy. Otherwise, its conveniently located near Main Street Franklin where you'll find unique shops and restaurants, street festivals, a restored movie theatre that is a music venue as well as movies, and many other interests as well like the library, Civil War historical tour, a small park, groceries and horse venues. There's a front porch swing to enjoy watching the small town traffic pass by and a fenced in back yard for your dog that has 2 loungers under an arbor with a deck to enjoy a meal in the sunshine off the kitchen. Its a perfect place for us to show off our beautiful, historic small town to out of town visitors. We hope you'll come back for a return stay and tell your friends about us.

Great house / location / fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, great house, very clean and quaint, convenient to Nashville and walkable to downtown Franklin (music shops restaurants). Williamson County Library and Cultural Enrichment Center and a playground are across the street. Fenced yard was great for our dogs. James and Julie are very accommodating and responsive. Highly recommended.

Perfect and charming vacation home. Close to restaurants, shopping and historic downtown Franklin.

  • 5 of 5

This house was so comfortable, cozy and perfectly decorated. As my elderly father said he has never seen a house so clean. It had everything we could ask for including a fenced in backyard for our three dogs. This house would be perfect for a girls weekend; close to antique shops, restaurants and even a quilt shop. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house to my friends and family. The owner is a delight to work with.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in Franklin to celebrate my niece's graduation from Lipscomb! This quaint bungalow proved to be one of the best parts of our trip, as we were all under one roof to make memories and briefly relax, when we weren't attending graduation activities, eating, shopping or art crawling in Franklin! Thank you for being the hostess with the mostest! ❤️

Great family weekend at this charming property conveneint to downtown Franklin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cozy home. Love how close it is to shopping, great restaurants, and all the awesomeness of downtown Franklin! There was plenty of room for our whole family. The private upstairs bed and bath makes it a great choice for families with adult children. The decor was picture perfect, and the beds were all comfortable. We enjoyed the back deck and small private yard. It is very clean, has great amenities and the owner is a joy to work with. I would highly recommend this property!

Very cute and well maintained home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great time staying at academy house. Our kids are 6, 8, and 10 and they had room to play inside and out. We used the kitchen a lot and it worked well. It's not a big kitchen but it had what we needed. Franklin is a great town. The downtown is old and charming. There is a very large park (200 acres) with a dog park that the kids and dog loved. The owner, Julie, was very responsive to our needs.
