A truly stunning historic cottage built in 1892 for the Carl Sweeney family, these walls and rooms are brimming with stories. Happiness and tragedy, laughter and tears, and generations who loved and lost here.This is the only nightly rental available in the heart of Leiper’s Fork village, walk to everything! I have truly enjoyed working on the redemption of this small and incredibly charming cottage, renovating where needed, and always preserving where I can to let the history shine through.

Featuring a queen bed upstairs in the master with beautiful bead board walls, another queen bed in a smaller adjacent room separated by a single original historic door, and a trundle bed downstairs that accommodates 2, up to 6 people can sleep here!

The tiny, chic kitchen features a fabulous mint green Smeg refrigerator and a bertazzoni stove, a cook’s dream! 

The antique farm table seats up to 8 in the dining room clad with old plates and mirrors. There is a stackable washer and dryer for any laundry you may need to do!

The bathroom features a tub deep enough to soak in, and a handheld shower kit, along with a fabulous brass console sink and faucet.

Two Gibson guitars are inside awaiting your musical skills, and the fire pit in the back is the perfect place for s’mores or star gazing.

Walk to historic Puckett’s Grocery, for live music, discover local shopping, and savor the food at 1892 restaurant, all right outside your door!

Pray for rain to sing you to sleep on the original tin roof of this unbelievably charming home!

Only 8 miles to Franklin and 26 miles to Nashville, the day trip options are endless…
