About Damon Rogers

Welcome! We are Damon and Mark Rogers, the grateful custodians of Damon's family home where we retired in 2000 after 30 years of Navy life. Mark is a retired Naval Officer, and we have been very fortunate to have lived and travelled all over the world.

The family home was built in 1919 and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) and Captains Quarters, two of our rental properties located behind the Big House, were originally built in 1970 as a guest home and office suite.

Much of the surroundings you'll see when staying at one of our vacation rentals in Franklin have been gradually collected during our Navy years and represent our strong Southern heritage and love of antiques.

Damon Rogers purchased this studio in 1919

Why Damon Rogers chose Tennessee

Originally built as an office suite behind the original 1919 historic family home, you will be amazed at the beautiful conversion from a spacious office suite into an elegant studio apartment. This 800 square foot apartment boasts "brand new everything" with the exception of the family antiques and collected prints throughout.

The original office has become the elegantly-appointed living room, and the king size bed and kitchen nook are just two of many reasons to stay at Captains Quarters. The original powder room has become a fully stocked galley kitchen with microwave, doll-sized oven and stove (so precious!), 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, Italian dishes and serving pieces, and plenty of pots, pans, pyrex and cooking utensils to cook the day away.

In what was once the adjoining storage room has now become a fully-tiled bathroom with tub/shower combination and houses a spacious walk in closet and separate laundry room!

The outside welcomes you with a sweet front porch, window boxes, and seasonal plants contained in wrought iron planters passed down for generations. Walk around to the side yard and enjoy badminton, corn hole or the fire pit with ample wood supplied. Relax in the common patio area or cook on the outdoor gas grill located on the outside patio.

This elegant studio is such a must see piece of real estate in charming Franklin, TN that we often joke about wanting to move in ourselves!

What makes this studio unique

I (Damon) pride myself on being a preservationist and believe in repurposing from old buildings. Shutters throughout the studio came from the basement of my family home, and the Civil War era window grills were bought from a friend after a historic home was demolished.

Both Captains Quarters (VRBO Listing #497691) and Generals Retreat (VRBO #496793) can be rented to accommodate up to 6 people! For extensive details of the three properties we own in historic Franklin.

We found the Captain's Quarters studio apartment to be clean, comfortable, and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable mini vacation in Franklin, TN staying in the Captain's Quarters studio apartment. It sits in a fantastic location just a few blocks away from historic downtown Franklin with it's unique shops and dining. It is nestled well off the street in a quite and beautiful residential neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle but a mere few minutes from all of Franklin's attractions. As you can see from the photos, the Captain's Quarters is nicely furnished and was a cozy home away from home during our stay. We highly recommend it for any couple looking for a quite get away in Franklin.

Felt like a personal guest

  • 5 of 5

I had such a wonderful time staying in the Captain's Quarters. I was so welcomed, I felt like I should send a handwritten thank you afterward! The hosts have thought of everything, and they themselves are so charming. I work for myself and was in Franklin for a business meeting. The morning I was to drive home, I stayed until the last minute, as I was feeling so inspired by the surroundings - I sat there and worked! My professional life is all about creating wonderful experiences and outstanding hospitality. I may need to use this experience in my next speech on the way to do it perfectly!

Sweet visit!!

Had a great week stay in the Captain's Quarters. Mark and Damon were very kind upon arrival. They had plenty of brochures to look at and suggestions for dinner and site seeing. Bed was very comfortable and it was a very quite area. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Whether you walk, drive or catch the Franklin Trolley, you are easily accessible to Carnton Plantation, The Carter House, The Lotz House, movies or live entertainment at the Franklin Theater, shopping, antiquing or sightseeing. Museum tours, bike tours, and ghost tours are abundant or walk a block to Jim Warren Park for fresh air and sunshine. Jim Warren also boasts a Skate Park!

If you are a foodie, you will be pleased as there are numerous privately owned restaurants within walking distance. For the wine aficionado, Arrington Vineyards is but a short car drive along picturesque country roads, or enjoy our quaint country neighbor, Leiper's Fork, where you can pick up the Natchez Trace Parkway and head into Nashville for another full day adventure.

Those of us living in Franklin boast that "we are 15 miles south and 100 years down the road from Nashville." A 30 minute drive gets you to 'Music City USA'! Franklin has been mentioned in major publications like Southern Living, CNN, Money Magazine, Forbes, and Business Week as one of the best places to live, work, and visit in the entire country, and Captains Quarters is centrally located in the historic district of Franklin - home to 150 places to explore that are on the National Registry.
