About Chris Wise

Hi. We are Don & Chris Wise. We have been married for 44 years and have made Middle Tennessee our home of the last 25 years. JD Wise (Don) is an artist and his works can be found throughout our home and exclusively at Nina Kuzina Gallery in Nashville. He is also a Dove-nominated producer. Chris is a decorator, loves to sing and is mother of 3 and proud grandmother of 5.

Chris Wise purchased this House in 2001

Why Chris Wise chose Bellevue

We purchased the property because it reminded us of a year-round retreat. We have had artist, authors, editors, song writers and vacationers all spend quite a bit of time brainstoming, creating and just plain relaxing here. We have plenty of deer grazing the property (they think it's theirs), as well as whippoorwills, squirrels, owls, and turkeys. Our favorite thing is to sit under the bright stars at night with a glass of wine and tune into relaxing music. We know you will enjoy the peace and quiet as much as we do!

What makes this House unique

20 minutes to Downtown Nashville, 12 minutes to Historical Downtown Franklin, 1.5 miles to the Natchez Trace bridge, and only 4 minutes from the world famous Loveless Cafe!!

For an extra fee, you can have lunch delivered to you from the wonderful restaurant next door.

                                                              Wonderful hosts and beautiful place. We have stayed in several VRBO locations. This was by far the best. This is EXACTLY how VRBO homes should be handled and organized. The hosts were extremely nice. I honestly can't say enough about this stay. If it means anything, we have stayed at probably 10 or so VRBO locations, and this is the first time I have left a review. Thank you and I look forward to this again in the future if we are lucky enough for it to be available!

                                                              Fantastic stay

                                                              Patrick D.

                                                              Came out for my nieces wedding. Property is beautiful, owners are fantastic. Only thing I would change, is this is a downstairs "apartment" which is great, but the bathroom is upstairs in the "main" part of the house. So slightly awkward, but everything else more than makes up for it.

                                                              Wise Acres is the place to stay for a quiet time in Franklin

                                                              Tobby H.

                                                              My wife and I met some friends for a short getaway (Franklin is about halfway between us) and stayed at Wise Acres. We were met by Don and Chris, who were super nice, and their hospitality was outstanding. And then they left us alone to enjoy the place and the quiet plot of land.

                                                              We enjoyed everything about our stay. From the coffee, to the pool table, to the fire pit right outside the door (which they encouraged us to use), it was wonderful. We mostly played games and watched some football during the evening we were there (using my iphone and Watch ESPN app over their Apple TV), but I wish we were able to have stayed longer.

                                                              Great Place to Stay while visiting Nashville area

                                                              Renee B.

                                                              Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Chris and Don's place. It was plenty of room with a great pool table and TV for entertainment and comfortable furniture for relaxation. We were very close to the Natchez Trace Trail and enjoyed driving it for a few miles. Also, was very close to the Loveless Café. We went early on Friday morning and was seated immediately for a delightful breakfast. Chris and Don were great to rent from. They met us that afternoon to help us get settled and we never saw them again (would have if we needed them). Thanks for a great little retreat time.

                                                              Private and quiet

                                                              Patty M.Gardner, MA

                                                              Chris and Don were very attentive to our needs. The space was clean & tastefully decorated with a combination of Russian art & some of Don's own work. It was nice to have the pool table for when we had a little down-time. The kitchenette came stocked with nice treats for weary travelers: popcorn, chips, coffee, and the mini fridge was filled with bottles of water. Though the apartment was part of their home, we had plenty of privacy and did not hear or see Chris and Don other than our initial greeting. However, Chris was readily available by text and rapidly responded. The driveway, however although pictured was a bit of a challenge. It was incredibly steep and we had to give it a lot of gas to get up the hill. The only issue with that was the fear that we might meet someone coming down in the opposite direction because there was no place to pull to the side without bumping off the edge. Location was good for travel to Leipers Fork or Natchez Trace, which are great scenic areas, but it was a little far for us to travel to Spring Hill to see our son. I might suggest a better defined marker near the mailbox to help identify the driveway along the highway as it was a little difficult to identify the driveway at night.

                                                              Had a great stay...

                                                              John K.

                                                              This place was fabulous. I wish we could have spent more time there. Highly recommend.
