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!

Great spot for a solo writing retreat

  • 5 of 5

When I knew I was going to be in the Nashville area for work, I booked two nights at Timber Ridge onto the back end of the trip. I'm currently writing a book, and was looking for a spot in the area to hole up for a couple of extra nights so that I could work uninterrupted. This place turned out to be perfect for just that purpose. The hosts have thought of everything and then some (flowers and muffins at check-in, wow!). The space is furnished with a mix of old and new pieces and everything was easy to use and clean. The wifi was a big plus, because I could access my files online and didn't have to haul materials with me. I would definitely return again for work or pleasure. I have also recommended Timber Ridge to my friends who live in Nashville, in case they might want to sneak off for a little solo time for themselves sometime.

This is a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I came here for our anniversary, and we couldn't be more pleased! This place was so inviting and relaxing from the minute we walked through the door, and the owners were great to work with! Highly recommend!

My husband and I visited this area for the historic sites. It was so beautiful and comfortable at our home in the woods we hated to leave to explore the area. The design and detail were amazing. Very comfortable and private. Surrounding area is beautiful and full of history. The town of Franklin offers lots of shopping, restaurants and historic tours. Close by Leipers Fork is a nice little town to explore. Kroger grocery is nearby with a few other businesses. Such a clean, friendly area. Would love to go back for a longer stay. Highly recommended!!!

A beautiful property, very restful and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

It was great to stay at Timber Ridge. It is a beautiful, well-appointed and completely private section of a home in a gorgeous area just outside Nashville. Coming back there after a full day enjoying the sounds and sights of Music City was extremely relaxing. The owners were very thoughtful. They left muffins and orange juice for us, and responded immediately and appropriately to one very minor question we had. We'd go back there any time!

Great comfortable decor

  • 4 of 5

The unit was decorated in warm and comfortable décor and was clean. There were a few things that we were somewhat disappointed with. The first was that the bbq was not functional which we did not realize until after we had purchased steaks. This was a shame as we were looking forward to enjoying a good meal in the beautiful setting. Secondly there were a few items missing which would have made things easier such as dish wash cloths and hand towels. We could not get cell service (Verizon) unless we stood on the back porch. All in all it was a great trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and input - It helps us to provide a better service for everyone. As far as the barbecue grill, we just tested it and found that the igniter didn't work, though it functioned using a lighter. Still, we purchased a new one today. Of course we can't chsnge which cell phone carriers have the best reception here but most including AT&T have a strong signal. Of course we always encourage our guests to let us know immediately if they have any issues and we can rectify right away, as we are on site
