Cottage on Main Street
A private (secluded and available by approval only), newly renovated Cottage located one and half blocks from Historic Downtown Franklin. The Cottage has a contemporary, casual feeling with original art from local artists. The cathedral ceiling window brings in rays of light to give a lovely ambiance to the interior space.

The Cottage on Main Street is tucked away behind a lovely historic home built on Main Street in 1903. It is quiet, peaceful, and secluded, yet is just a short, 1-1/2 block walk into downtown Franklin. Located on the West side of Main Street, the Cottage is surrounded by a large fenced yard with mature trees and filtered sunlight. You can hear the church bells ring gently from the old historic churches downtown. There’s a front porch with white rocking chairs perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine.
Sometimes, creativity needs a little push in a lovely environment with minimal distractions. The Cottage offers a tranquil place to write a book, a song, paint, or just give you space to be creative. The Cottage offers a unique spot that feels miles away from anywhere but is still in the heart of downtown Franklin. Plus, there’s plenty of “tech” to help the process, from fast wifi to a Jambox to an Apple TV with AirPlay for music.
We are fortunate to have many friends in Franklin who are Authors; they have graciously provided their books to read in the Cottage to give you even more inspiration to create.
Known as a walking town by many, Franklin has much to offer.

Enjoy the area's abundant festivals, historic reenactments, and live music at numerous venues around town.
