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!

WOW! Speechless

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Timber Ridge for a mother daughter girls weekend - there were four of us and the cabin was so beautiful and comfortable for our 3 night stay...our only regret was not getting to stay LONGER! The accommodations were even better than pictured online - we were literally speechless when we walked in the door after a very long road trip. The shower/bathtub was AMAZING! The pull out sofa was exceptionally comfortable :) Thank you so much for the welcome muffins. When we drove up our first night and could see the cabin all lite up through the trees we were SO excited!! My only recommendation would be some sort of sign indicating your location - because sometimes "Siri" or GPS can be misleading, haha!! But thank you so much for everything and for making our little weekend getaway so special, we had such a great time in downtown Historic Franklin on St. Patty's day and a beautiful day in Nashville as well.

Beautiful setting with the most charming accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located to take advantage of the Franklin, Leipers Fork and Natchez Trace Parkway area. Great to explore then come "home" to the lovely cottage retreat at Timber Ridge. Can't wait to return.

Lovely Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The view is absolutely breathtaking here! The cabin has everything you need for a romantic getaway or a girls trip! Very relaxing and well maintained. The location is great. The music playing when we arrived and the fresh flowers were a nice touch. We spent time downtown Franklin and a day in Nashville. I can't wait to return!

Amazing cabin in the woods.Perfect getaway location. Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time from the moment we got there until the moment we left. The owners have thought of everything to make you feel welcomed and special. There were flowers on the tables, orange juice in the fridge, muffins on the table, music playing when you walk in. The bathroom has great supplies like bath salts and fancy soap. The hot tub was amazing (we couldn't get the jets to work on one side but it could have been user error and 2 worked excellent so we didn't bother calling owners but I am positive they would have fixed if we had). We went on a BFF girls weekend so we used the bed and pull out couch. The couch was surprisingly comfortable. We also rented a couple of movies and used the dvd player so that was nice to have. We enjoyed the chairs out back. The view is amazing and you feel like you are in the mountains and not that close to town. You are so close to a great hiking trail right off Natchez Trace and so close to Leipers Fork and Franklin. It was an amazing getaway spot either for a girl's weekend or a romantic getaway. I would totally go back and even though we never actually saw the owners they responded to my questions before arrival almost immediately. They had everything plus some on what we would need. Thank you for the amazing break from reality this weekend.
