Raise your hand if you could use a vacation. I could! And this country farmhouse–a vacation rental near Franklin, Tennessee–looks like a lovely place to take a breather. It sits on 41 secluded acres with a pond down the road from Historic Leipers Fork Village.
A reader named Sarah owns it and says, “Our five-year old son Wyatt loves to wake up early to see the family of river otters, catch frogs or go fishing in the pond, eat breakfast on the front porch, make s’mores over the crackling fire in the outdoor fireplace and play countless games of Uno and pool in the game room.”
“My husband Michael instantly fell in love with the beautiful views and the most amazing lightning bugs we have ever seen – hundreds that appear to be dancing all around you.”
“I love waking up with a cup of tea on the front porch or in the sunroom and watching the catfish jump in the lake, lazy afternoons in the hammock – dozing off while reading a good book, eating dinner together outside on the back deck and listening to the banjo strum sound that the green frogs make.”
“There’s an open living room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, and a hand-laid fireplace built from stones found on the land.”
Have you ever rented a house for a family vacation? We prefer staying in houses to hotels, especially when we’re in Tennessee.
There are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, and the house can sleep 6-10 people.
What would a vacation home in Tennessee be without a pool table? It’s always at the top of my husband’s list when we’re looking for a place to stay.
I’d be spending as much time on the porch as possible.
I feel more relaxed just looking at these photos, don’t you? Ahhh…
Want to visit? Check VRBO for availability, rates, and more photos of the property, and be sure to plan ahead. The dates fill up fast. (Thanks to Sarah for telling me about it!)
