I’m a weirdo who rarely takes a vacation but nonetheless spends an inordinate amount of time planning trips to places like this in my head.
Here’s one I’ve been daydreaming about this week: a cabin rental in Franklin, Tennessee, called “NEST.”
Take a look!
NEST: A Creekside Cabin in the Woods
It sits on 10 private, wooded acres, with a creek, in Leiper’s Fork.
Bed Swing on Front Porch:
The listing says, “Featuring an outdoor shower and firepit, a tree swing and a front porch full sized bed swing, the only problem you will have is trying to figure out where you want to relax.”
“The cabin features an open floor plan, one bedroom, plus loft and one bathroom with just over 1100 sq ft of living space.”
Main Bedroom on First Floor:
Two Twin Beds in Upstairs Loft:
I thought it was wallpaper at first, but those are real books!
Bathroom with Planked Walls and Subway Tile:
Regarding the location, the listing says, “Leiper’s Fork is just a short scenic thirty minute drive south of Nashville in the best community in the area. This is where the stars live and breathe. The close proximity makes it a perfect getaway for recording artists and entertainment professionals looking for peace and quiet during their stay in Nashville.”
Who wants to take a turn on the tire swing first? 🙂
The cabin was beautifully decorated by City Farmhouse and photographed by Home Pix Media.
Thanks to “Innkeeper Sarah” for sharing it with us.
Check Shelter + Roost for rental information (sorry, but their website is no longer active).
Layla stayed at NEST and you can see the photos she took at The Lettered Cottage.
Julia, you can’t imagine how encouraging this post has been to me. My husband and I recently bought a very similar-looking cabin in north MS, although ours is still very much in the “before” stages. This TN cabin is just what I’m hoping ours will look like someday.
A couple of years ago, we spent a very relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving at a little cabin in Franklin. It was one of our most memorable Thanksgivings ever.

What a beautiful and serene place. Surprisingly large and spacious inside, isn’t it? I love all the detail that’s gone into the décor. The setting is gorgeous, but I’m a swimmer, so this place would be even more perfect if it were on a lake as opposed to a creek.
If it’s been a while since you’ve vacationed, you might have trouble making it past that bed on the front porch! 🙂 What a relaxing-looking place. Sweet, simple, and most importantly, q u i e t.
I know! That looks like a pretty fabulous place to relax and take a nap, doesn’t it? 🙂
Looks wonderful! I particularly like the bath with the wood-look tile, pebble tile in the shower, large subway tile, and what looks like a refurbished sink. (We had one like that in our old house, but not in pristine condition.) I also like the books in the gable – could totally do that with the ones I have stored away. Being nitpicky, that chandelier is too big for the little table under it, though. Maybe because the ceilings are vaulted and the room is open they thought they could get away with it.
Cute place! Go there! I don’t do a lot of vacationing. Is it because we love our homes too much to leave?
Here goes my practical side again – if your books are placed spine inwards, how the heck do you find the one you want??!!
That’s definitely part of it for me. There are few places I’d rather be than at home with my family, my animals, and my sunroom. 🙂
You don’t even know how happy I am those books are real and not wallpaper. Awesome.
I’m torn about this cabin. It’s adorable, perfectly furnished and finished, but seems to me it is looking for a New Yorker or other northerner to rent it who wants to say they rented a cabin in the woods but really want a high-end place that could be a hotel. Don’t get me wrong – I think the cabin is gorgeous and I’m sure everyone who visits it is happy, but it doesn’t strike me as much of a cabin in the true sense of what most of us think – rustic.
