About Elizabeth Knizley

We live nearby on a horse farm.

Why Elizabeth Knizley chose Franklin

Battlefield Cottage was built on the actual ground where the Battle of Franklin raged.

The little brick cottage was built in the 1930's. While development of a civil war battlefield would not happen today, much of the the Franklin battlefield was lost to commercial development in the immediate decades after the war. Today, preservationists are reclaiming the historically significant sites. In 2006, land bordering the southwestern end of the Carter House property (steps from Battlefield Cottage) was acquired with help of the Civil War Preservation Trust and local organizations. This site saw tremendous fighting and was part of a brief Confederate breakthrough. After the purchase, a house, out-buildings, and a swimming pool were removed. During excavation of the original Federal entrenchments some human bones were found.

The area around the intersection of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. (steps from Battlefield Cottage) has seen a serious renewed effort since 2005–06 to reclaim that area for the center of a future battlefield park. The location of the former Pizza Hut is now the home to Cleburne Park. The property where the Carter Cotton Gin was located during the battle was purchased in 2005. In 2008 the property behind this location and where the Federal line crossed Columbia Ave. was purchased and in May 2010 the property east of the Gin location and where part of the Gin may have stood was also purchased. A Domino's Pizza in a small mini-mart at the northeast corner of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. still stands in the center of the key battlefield area, but is scheduled to be removed.

Preservation organizations plan to reconstruct both the Carter Cotton Gin and some of the Federal entrenchments before the 150th Anniversary of the battle on November 30, 2014, as part of the Civil War Sesquicentennial

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is so cute. It is in a perfect location. It is about a 30 minute drive into Nashville. This house is perfect for those that want to come to Nashville but don't want to be close to all the action.

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Battlefield cottage! It's an older house but is very well kept and was very clean! The 2 master bedrooms are a great setup and the shower was wonderful! The fenced in backyard was perfect for our dogs. The location is close to the downtown area. Elizabeth was a great host and was very accommodating! There is a wonderful dog park close by that we took our dogs to. I would highly recommend Puckett's restaurant for breakfast. Their buffet was great! Our only complaint is that we only got to stay for 2 days. Will definitely plan on coming back!

Cozy & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. There is enough room for the two of us, plus our small dog. Everything we needed was furnished. I was somewhat stressed with all the rain & cold & trying not to track in leaves, etc. We felt very safe & secure, such a quiet neighborhood. We would definitely stay again if health permits.

Quaint and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to stay in for our son’s wedding. It was a perfect location to the wedding venue and walking downtown. The home met our needs and we truly enjoyed our stay.

An English Countryside Cottage in TN!

  • 5 of 5

We adored our stay at Battlefield Cottage. The home reminded me of staying in the pages of a Cottage Home Magazine! We loved Franklin and could have stayed two weeks and still would not see all the area has to offer. The cottage was very comfy and the two Master bedrooms were perfect for two couples. The kitchen had every amenity one could need but we favored local restaurants! Area was great for walking and was safely like home on the quaint cul-de-sac. We cant wait til we book the cottage again. Elizabeth is a A+++++ hostess!!!!!
