About Jennifer Russell

In this section I am supposed to tell you about us - Jen and Wes. Well... we found each other 12 years ago and fell in love quickly. We are both extremely happy souls and are the best of friends. We Love and feel blessed that we are living in Franklin, TN and look forward to sharing some of it with you. Wes and I share a huge love of animals and work with a Dog Rescue Group in the area called Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue. We currently have three dogs: Allie Bear, Zoie, and Buster Douglas. Allie Bear is a Great Pyrenees Mix that was dropped off as a pup at my brother's farm - she is six now. Zoie came to us after being in the Tuscaloosa, Alabama tornado (actually up in the tornado - in her crate - they found her a mile from her foster home that was destroyed). Buster Douglas was an owner-surrender in Mississippi - they thought he couldn't make it from a horrible case of heart-worms, but Snooty Giggles brought him here and he is now a healthy English Bulldog and gives us great joy! We also have two cats - Bang Bang and William. Chick Chick is our adult hen. She is a very sweet white chicken that is now mostly just a part of the family. Our newest additions are five baby chicks and five baby ducks. We take great pride in asking you to stay with us and will do everything in our power to see that you are so very glad you did.

Jennifer Russell purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jennifer Russell chose Tennessee

A dear friend decided she should sell her home and came to me. She wanted me to buy it. My mind told me there was no way possible. She would not give up the thought and in less than two months it was ours - on paper. We consider it a "God Thing" :) We have shared some wonderful experiences here: Singing, Playing Music, Dancing, Dinners, Laughter, Animals. Everything seems magical on the Hill. We want to share it with you.

Hibernation Hill is very close to everything Franklin. The Ag-Expo Center is approximately 2 miles down the road, we sit about a mile from both I-65 and 840, and about 5 minutes from the center of downtown Franklin. Cool Springs Galleria and all of its amenities are only 5 miles on I-65. Leipers Fork is approximately 15 minutes by beautiful TN back-roads.

What makes this apartment unique

The drive up the steep driveway opens to our Log Home nestled in 6 acres of trees. It won't take you long to realize why it has become known as Hibernation Hill. A stone walkway will lead you to your home away from home. Inside you will immediately notice the fantastic view from the 4 floor-to-ceiling windows on the front of the house. You can watch the sun set from inside via rocking chair, the kitchen table, the sectional sofa, or the queen-sized bed. Also in this large, open living area is the kitchen. There is a large sink, counter top, microwave, small fridge, Keurig Coffee Maker, and other small kitchen appliances if needed. We have added a cooking station just inside the garage with toaster oven, two-burner hot plate, and griddle pan. Down the hallway you will find your full bath with tub/shower combo and then the bedroom equipped with the King-Sized bed. Your retreat is on the ground level of our home. You are welcomed to play Ping-Pong in the adjacent garage, sit out by the fire pit, enjoy the 40 inch flat screen tv, the bose stereo, do some bird watching or hike to the top of the hill for even more of a bird's eye view. Enjoy coffee or hot tea on the covered patio just outside your front door where morning or night you may see deer, turkey, squirrels, or bunnies.

Amazing Visit

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and the hosts were very gracious. This was our first experience with a vacation rental and it was very positive. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The location was very convenient to all the sites we wanted to visit. We could not have asked for a better experience. We look forward to more opportunities to visit in the future. Thanks to our hosts for making this a fuss-free, no hassles getaway.

Very cute, well decorated, clean, comfortable rental. The owners were even thoughtful enough to have items like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and body wash available had we forgotten ours. And it was nice to be offered the chilled water in the fridge or coffee in a note upon arrival.

Peaceful, quiet beauty-perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a weekend getaway. We loved the convenience of this home's location near Franklin, and yet with the peaceful and quiet beauty of its country setting.We found the unit to be exactly what the listing had described and pictured. From the moment we opened the door, we knew exactly what was available and where it was located. The unit was very clean with fun decor and comfortable beds. Jen and Wes have done an excellent job of making this an inviting, relaxing place to stay. We enjoyed walks around the lovely property, reading on the patio, several games of ping pong, and visits with the animals. We felt quite at home! Thank you Jen and Wes for sharing your home. We will definitely stay again when the opportunity arises!

Hibrnation HIll - Charming, peaceful, friendly property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Hibernation Hill with Jennifer and Wes. The property exudes a quaint charm with the dogs, ducks and chickens. The ground (guest) level of the cabin was set up with delightful décor that Jennifer has collected. Sit back and let the peace and quiet melt your city stress away. Oh and don't forget to say hello to Billy the Cat. Our two terriers absolutely warmed up to Billy and loved laying in the grass side by side. Jennifer and Wes were very accommodating, friendly and there when you needed them but for the most part we were welcomed to "make ourselves at home" and enjoy the property. An absolutely delightful visit to Tennessee made all the more enjoyable by our stay at Hibernation Hill.

Beautiful setting and friendly, accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway place for us with the rural setting and extremely comfortable accommodations. We will definitely be back! Jen and Wes are great folks and we loved our experience here! Love all the animals that we got to interact with as well. It helps us when we have to be away from our own dogs :-).
