Amazing peaceful property!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience the Art House provides! Sydney was so helpful and thought of everything we could possibly need during our stay. Her attention to detail is admirable. The trees, the deck, the peace...all fantastic. The house was spotless, the beds were comfy, the kitchen was well stocked with necessities. I highly recommend you stay at the Art House. 20 min from downtown Franklin and 40 min from Nashville. Well worth the drive!

I found my stay at the Art House to be everything I could have hoped for and more. I needed to be away, relax, center myself. My previous attempts to find the place that would allow this to happen have failed. Not this time, the Art House and Sydney's graciousness met me where I was and gave me the time I so desperately needed. Sydney added her touch not only with the art filled home but in little touches of fresh blueberries, farm fresh eggs, etc. I'm so thankful she created the space and opened her doors to allow stranger friends to enter. You must go and experience it. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic private getaway. Beautiful and serene. Enjoyed walking around property.

Home was set among the trees in a great location with a lot of natural light coming in

from the large windows. Enjoyed breakfast on the deck. Will definitely return.

Staying in Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly magic, not only the house itself with all the beautiful art and great attention to detail, but also the environment. Tucked away on a hillside in a forrest, with only the sounds of birds, frogs, wind and the sight of an occasional deer and the nightly firefly display, this is a place to rest and enjoy nature. If you want to get away from it all, or find a place to work on your art, look no further. This is it.

A wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay at this lovely place for nine days. We came in for Lasik surgery and to also visit family in the area and we could not have chosen a better place! It was so peaceful to come back to after driving about, and such a wonderful place to relax and heal. Sydney is a wonderful host, and she was very accommodating to our needs. We both have sensitivities to chemical fragrances and this place was perfect for us. Also the retreat was very clean and comfortable, and decorated with her amazing art!! It's such an enchanting location...out of the rush of Franklin and Nashville, yet close enough to get to either within 20 minutes or so. We are definitely returning to this lovely place each time we make a trip to Middle Tennessee. Sydney is such a talented lady and such a delight to visit with, but if you prefer quiet and solitude, she provides that too! You won't find a lovelier place to spend a short weekend or an extended stay.
