Best trip to Nashville area ever!

  • 5 of 5

What a awesome location and the cabin was fantastic. My only complaint is that we didn't get to spend more time there. The owner was great- baked us fresh bread with local blue berries. It is definitely a unique retreat!!

Amazing little birthday get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Art House for a long weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday while attending the Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin. It was the perfect get away and I am so glad we chose it instead of a hotel. The Art House was amazing with fun art work and custom made furniture throughout the house. The host was most gracious and left us with fresh eggs, butter, and biscotti. The shampoo/conditioner and soap were amazing. Such wonderful little touches made the stay extra special. We will definitely be finding an excuse to stay at the Art House again!
