About Julie Peeler

We are two couples, a sister and brother with spouses/good friends, that decided to venture into the vacation rental business together. We are native Franklin residents and love showing off our unique town. We hope that staying at Academy House makes your experience here one to remember.

What makes this bungalow unique

Academy house is special to us first because it is located across the street from where the two guys in our group went to high school, Battle Ground Academy. Otherwise, its conveniently located near Main Street Franklin where you'll find unique shops and restaurants, street festivals, a restored movie theatre that is a music venue as well as movies, and many other interests as well like the library, Civil War historical tour, a small park, groceries and horse venues. There's a front porch swing to enjoy watching the small town traffic pass by and a fenced in back yard for your dog that has 2 loungers under an arbor with a deck to enjoy a meal in the sunshine off the kitchen. Its a perfect place for us to show off our beautiful, historic small town to out of town visitors. We hope you'll come back for a return stay and tell your friends about us.

We truly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent, plenty of room, cozy and within walking distance of downtown. Will certainly return. The only negative comment was previous tenants did not respect the back yard regarding picking up after their pets. We made sure that was not the case with us and treated this house as our temporary home. All pet droppings were thoroughly cleaned up from the back yard. We hope to return again next year if this property is available.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Academy House! It was close to downtown Franklin and a short drive to Nashville. The beds had crisp white sheets and were very comfortable. The kids stayed in the bedroom w the double beds which reminded them of Alice in Wonderland. My parents stayed upstairs and had their own little suite up there w their own bathroom. The fenced in yard was also a great addition to the stay. There was no way my Jack Russell could escape! I would highly recommend this little gem in Franklin. We had a great time. Thanks for the coffee Julie, and if you ever want to sell me that horse tray........!

Great layout for family of four

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay over Christmas. We were able to walk to and from the grandparents house, and everyone enjoyed the extra room. Everything we needed for cooking a Christmas breakfast was at hand, and the home was very comfortable.

Lovely home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Academy House while in Franklin for some Fall fun! The location is perfect, parking is ample, and the furnishings in the home are absolutely beautiful! What a lovely little cottage! We had my mom's small pup with us, and the fenced in yard worked out perfectly to let her out for a little run. Our hosts were very attentive with questions and we were made to feel very welcome. I highly recommend!
