About Al or Karen Davis

We built this cozy, custom timber frame cabin for our home and to start a vacation rental business. We have lived in the Nashville area for 10 years and wanted to move to the country to build our dream home and enjoy the beautiful Gatlinburg-like surroundings. We have always enjoyed nature and wildlife but also wanted to be close to the modern conveniences that a city like Nashville has to offer, as well as the charm of historic Franklin and historic Leipers Fork area. The Natchez Trace Bridge is 2 miles from our home. Of course, the music aspect of our area can't be ignored!

Al or Karen Davis purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Al or Karen Davis chose Tennessee

Unique, Gatlinburg-like fall away lot. Perfect for the chalet we had in mind and had wanted for years!

A Little Gem

  • 4 of 5

Great little hide-a-way, conveniently located to Franklin and surrounding areas. Flowers, home made muffins, coffee, half and half (in the refrig) and all off the little items (S&P, sugar, etc) were a pleasant surprise. The only damper was hurricane Harvey!

Excellent little place.

  • 5 of 5

Prefect place with and excellent view. Just far enough away from everything that it quiet and enjoyable. But but still close enough that Nashville is about 25 minutes away and Franklin is only about 10 minutes away.

The cabin is very well kept and clean. By far one of the best rentals I have had.

Charming, pet friendly accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The Timber Ridge apartment is a charming, well equipped and very comfortable unit in a beautiful wooded setting. Even more charming are the owners, Al and Karen. We arrived with our 3 month old puppy for a family reunion in Nashville and Al and Karen filled in as "puppy parents" allowing us to have plenty of time visiting with our family. Thank you, Al and Karen! We totally enjoyed our time in your cabin apartment. Pat & Tim
