The space
Contemporary, earthy space for soothing the soul or tapping into all your creative inspirations, in a newly renovated, former art studio, which is set near my artist-built home and studio. Organic gardens, ponds, woods, creek walks, You will be staying in your own private home space, with fabulous kitchen and bath which includes famous "Fernvale Spring Water". TN hardwood floors can be found throughout the 1100 square ft. along with soothing bed and living rooms with nooks and enchanted spaces everywhere. You will have the surrounding beauty of private camping while enjoying all the amenities of a modern fully-equipped home, all to yourself. Do it yourself meals but coffee and teas provided.
All ethnic backgrounds, sexual identities, and other things that make you interesting are welcomed, of course! We are a diversity loving retreat.

Also, there is no cable TV but TV is available for DVD and cd playing.( streaming not available due to being a bit off the beaten path. ) Internet is great for emails, but not for streaming, again due to location.
Know this is mainly set up for retreat and while close to Leipers Fork, Fairview, Franklin, Nashville, it is a private and woodsy holler and ridge location.

Where you’ll be

Franklin, Tennessee, United States

Truly lovely, scenic, rolling, wooded and fielded Fernvale River Valley is perfect for biking, hiking, and immersing oneself in nature, while having the convenience and amenities of being near so many cultural opportunities. A great group of independent yet community minded folk live here. Our visitors and neighbors alike note that the moment they hit Fernvale, they just start "de-compressing'' Leipers Fork and Franklin Provide great shopping, restaurants and music while Nashville, well it speaks for itself....
