About Samantha

We met at Gemology school in San Diego, CA and found that we not only fell in love but shared the same passions for life. We chose to be jewelers by trade but we are designers by passion. We settled down in the Santa Barbara area and began to raise our two boys Ozzy and Cash. Being on an eternal search for the perfect place to live we just had not found it yet. Eric, born and raised in Mississippi and I in Idaho, Eric often spoke of this magical town in Tennessee called Leiper's Fork that he had visited as a teenager. We finally came for vacation July 4th, 2014 and I promptly fell head over heals in love! We were sitting out front of Puckett's drinking Ne-Hi soda watching our boys faces light up with joy as they chased the fireflies. Leiper's Fork chose us in that moment. Without delay we purchased our home on Joseph, now the Tin Roof Cottage, returned to Santa Barbara and moved here 20 days later. We never looked back, we now reside just 1 mile away from the Cottage. We are currently raising our boys in this marvelous community and we welcome you with open hearts. Warmly, Eric, Samantha, Ozzy and Cash

Samantha purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Samantha chose Tennessee

After falling in love with this street and it being where we bought our first home in the area, the opportunity arose to gain this home, we could not pass it up. We are grateful to be able to now offer Pickers Cottage as a place for you to enjoy your stay in Leipers.

What makes this cottage unique

Pickers Cottage provides you with a unique opportunity to become immersed in a Norman Rockwell painting that has come to life. You will love getting lost in this great community but still have easy access to the city of Nashville and downtown Franklin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Samantha was very responsive and helpful to any and all questions/requests I threw at her and the home was perfect for our needs. I was there with 2 of my teenage children and oldest (25) daughter for vacation and there was plenty of room for everyone! An upstairs sitting area with TV (3 apple TV's throughout the house), and a spacious master with big bathroom and huge closet. Huge new washer & dryer. The house looks like it came right off the pages of Country Living magazine. Front porch for sitting. Fire pit in the back yard stocked with wood. Easy walk into the adorable town of Lieper's Fork with great shopping and great music at Pucket's. Would definitely go back again.

It's so cute!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the Pickers Cottage for an annual "girls' weekend. As we walked through the the house for the first time, all any of the six of us could say was, "It's so cute!" And it really was. We felt like we were staying in an HGTV "Fixer Upper" house. In other rentals where we've stayed, the pans and towels and sheets, etc. were functional, but not all that great. Understandable. The owners don't want to replace things that mysteriously disappear. But at the Pickers Cottage, everything is high-end, name brand quality which goes to show you that the owners are very particular about their rentals, making the property luxuriously comfortable. The cottage is located in a sweet residential area just a couple of blocks from Leiper's Fork's shops and restaurants. All in all, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend this property.

High praise from friends who where my guests. Beds were comfy, linens were in great condition. Room enough for everyone. Fun places to visit, Pucketts, Sugar, and Leipers Fork Distillery. We were very pleased with accommodations, and we had so much fun. Great 4 days. Thanks Samantha and Eric

Beautifully decorated, comfortable and convenient, the house had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Pickers Cottage from the moment we drove in to the minute we left, we felt that the cottage was a perfect choice for our Family's needs. The decorating is exceptional and my favorite room was the loft area. My Daughter and I watched TV up there and enjoyed it so much. The entire home was comfortable with plenty of room and comfy places to sit. The location of the house is amazing, we enjoyed walks to the stores and Puckett's in Leipers Fork. The house is so close to Natchez trace that we were able to be on it in just a couple of minutes.

The Neighbor's are delightful and friendly and the neighborhood was so quiet and quaint.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pickers Cottage to my family and friends. Samantha is very easy to work with and always answered all of my emails in a timely manner. Thank you Eric and Samantha for opening your beautiful home to us, we can not wait to return. The Williamson Family

"This House Could Make Us Insta Famous"

  • 5 of 5

My bridesmaids and I stayed at this house for my wedding over Labor Day weekend and we couldn't have asked for more! The house and area is just jaw-dropping. The house is equipped with everything you need and the nearby shops/restaurants are a great option for guests that don't want to fuss with driving.

To the owners, thank you for sharing your home with us. Franklin and Leiper's Fork now have a special place in our hearts and I hope you know you had a part in it.

If you're looking for something unique, you've come to the right place. From 200-year-old antiques to fine art to one-of-a-kind people, Leiper's Fork is a rare find for visitors and locals alike. This is a magical place that once visited you may not want to ever leave. Take a stroll through the village and you will marvel and the fantastic shops that are at your doorstep. Puckett's offers live music almost every night, don't forget that scoop of ice-cream on the hot summer day. The Natches trace is just a few miles down the road, calling for a lazy drive. Head up the trace to the famous Loveless Cafe for a meal you won't soon forget.
