About Damon Rogers

I'm Matthew Rogers, and I am a designer/brand strategist exploring a nomadic creative lifestyle. After 10+ years of building partnership-based design businesses and working in creative agencies and startups, I began to notice a sense of stagnancy. So, I decided to invest some of the fruits of my hard work into fully renovating and renting out my historic home. I now live and travel full time in a 31-foot RV with my dog (Doris-Akin), and daughter (Ryely). Sometimes, you'll find me parked in the backyard if you need anything!

My home is a labor of love and I'm honored to share it with you. I am a 7th Generation Franklinite and co-owner of Rogers Homeport with my parents. I come from a military family (GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY!) and my father served over 30 years as a disquished Naval Officer. Together, we own and operate 3 beautiful and unique properties all located in the heart of Downtown Franklin, a short walk from everything. You won't find friendly folks to welcome you to our little city and show you the best spots to go. We are true locals with hospitable Southern charm.

Damon Rogers purchased this house in 2009

Why Damon Rogers chose Tennessee

I am an artist and a designer passionate about aesthetic, but I am equally passionate about being eco-conscious - so I took great care in repurposing almost all the original materials into something new and installing green fixtures and appliances where possible.

The house was 105 years old when I purchased it in 2009 and the red oak wood that supports it was 200 years old when the trees were cut down. It is truly a one-of-a-kind home decorated with art from local artists as well as some of my own work. The halls are filled with found objects, pictures of my family and loved ones, and a variety of interesting antiques, fossils and trinkets. I was a picker by the age of 12 and it shows.

What makes this house unique

The home is centrally located to all that Downtown Franklin has to offer: Franklin Square, the public library, the Carter House, a new park near a historic civil war attraction, a great sushi spot, and a lively local bar with the best burgers. Mere blocks away are antique stores and the Harpeth River canoe launch.

I have absolutely loved living on this quiet, quaint little street full of friendly neighbors and beautiful scenery - and I know you'll love it too.

Whether you need a 3 bedroom, 2 bedroom, or a studio apartment, we've got you covered!

Nice get away close to downtown Franklin

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and found the home to be clean and comfortable. The proximity to downtown Franklin was the key for us as we like the walk into down to enjoy the shops and restaurants. It was also close to the historical landmarks which we found fascinating on our walks. Nice property.

Memorial Day Weekend 2017

  • 4 of 5

This house was great! My family and I all came in from different parts of the country to attend a wedding. This house fit all of us comfortably. The updates in the master suite, master bathroom, as well as the second bathroom are amazing. The ability to sit outside by a fire pit, grill a meal, or simply just being able to do laundry was a huge plus. The house is located in a pretty cool town that is rather large yet feels small. It's a short walk to downtown shops and restaurants which was a huge convenience. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I am a bit confused with the rating considering how much you loved the home and location. For us to earn a 5 star review we would welcome you concerns so that we may continue to receive positive 5 star reviews. It was our pleasure to host you and hope you will return in the future and we agree, Franklin is a great small town.
