About the property

Harlinsdale Cottage-1900's duplex in Downtown AND at 200 acre park-Pets welcome

The Cottage at Harlinsdale Farm! Quaint 1900's duplex located in Downtown Franklin AND sits on the edge of a 200 acre park - former horse farm. Duplex has a living room, bedroom w/Queen bed, kitchen and bath. Pet friendly, your dog will love the lake/park! Very private and located in the heart of Franklin's attractions!......

The Space - This cozy 1900's cottage offers the best of both worlds, you are located at historic downtown Franklin AND beside Harlinsdale Park! The RIGHT side/duplex is available for guest! It is completely separate with your own private front door entrance with no shared spaces (the left duplex is owner occupied). You will enjoy being in the heart of everything Franklin has to offer! Walk out your back door and step onto the beautiful Harlinsdale farm! We are pet friendly! Walk to the lake (our lab loves to swim in it!) See the beautifully restored barn, the manicured walking trails, and have a picnic (we provide the picnic basket with cheese and crackers:-). Enjoy concerts in the park (view Franklin events calendar for Harlinsdale Park). Walk across the street to the historic Factory which has been restored into a shopping mall offering antiques, unique shops and restaurants (Saffires is delicious). Behind The Factory is the Farmer's Market offering organic fruits, vegetables and much more (open on weekends-seasonal). To visit downtown Franklin, make a right out of your cottage driveway and within 2 minutes you are in the heart of historic Franklin! ( the cottage is a prime location near the square, sometimes traffic can be a little heavy on Franklin Rd:-). Catch a show at the original Franklin Theater. Visit charming shops and restaurants on Main St! I recommend a steak at the "Cork and Cow". The "Red Pony" has a great Southern menu, as does "55 South" also. Go for a drive and take in the architecture of many homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The cottage is a charming and quaint home away from home!

Charming, historic cottage on 200 acres of horse farm

  • 5 of 5

Although it faces a busy road, it is quiet and serene when you walk the trails. The dog park is the largest I've seen and dogs were in heaven. A lovely place to stay in Franklin, ideally located.

Welcome & cosy

  • 5 of 5

My time in the cottage was marvelous. I loved the convenience of walking to The Factory where my Conference was held. I even walked the 1 mile to downtown. The cottage had verything I needed. The fridge had water enough for my entire stay and a few snacks besides. Off street parking with room to turn around. I'm coming back next year.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable, quaintly decorated, and complete with every little touch needed to make a stay there easy and enjoyable. I met my son and my grandpuppy there for a weekend and we loved every minute. The sunset was gorgeous, the grounds were lush and beautiful, the lake was peaceful and relaxing and fun to watch the geese and cranes! The cottage complete with picnic basket and blanket to take on our hikes. I will definitely be returning to this one!!

Franklin is a lovely town, and this cute cottage is very conveniently located to downtown.

  • 3 of 5

Small cottage, cute and well decorated, near to downtown, although located on a very busy and thus noisy road; kitchen is very small and not really functional or equipped well for cooking. But if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, don't plan to cook and won't mind the highway traffic, then you'd enjoy this little cottage!!
