Description of the Franklin vacation home rental
Franklin Battlefield Inn is a beautiful historic Folk Victorian home built c. 1902, but with all the modern luxuries for the 21st century traveler... including three bedrooms, two bathrooms with limitless hot water provided by a tank-less hot water heater, a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, tile back splash, a gas stove, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and ice maker, washer and dryer, a vent-less gas log fireplace, four flat screen TVs with Direct TV, DVR (over 700 channels!), a blue-ray DVD player, and more.

Franklin Battlefield Inn (aka "the F.B.I.") is centrally located in Historic Downtown Franklin! If you are here to visit the Number One Small Town in TN ( according to Southern Living), you will want to stay here at the FBI! Walk to Franklin's thriving Main Street, dining, groceries, shopping, parks, museums and more. And if you are here to visit Nashville, Franklin Battlefield Inn is only a hop, skip and a jump from Music City USA (just a 25 minute drive).

Our county historian named this family home "Franklin Battlefield Inn," because the house is located on ground zero of the Battle of Franklin. It is argued that the Battle of Franklin was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, and this house sits at the very center of where the battle was fought! The Carter House and Museum are just two blocks north.

After the Civil War, Samuel P. Redford bought land from the Carter family and built several houses using wood from his lumber mill. Between 1899 and 1902, Sam Redford built this home using the finest red oak from his mill. Since then, five generations of Redfords have lived here (and a couple died here, but shhh don't tell the kids there are ghosts). We have heard stories of how our ancestors used to board guests in this home. We hope to bring back this tradition of hospitality by welcoming you to stay at the FBI.

With a gorgeous fenced in back yard, spacious deck and crab orchard stone island with fire pit, Franklin Battlefield Inn is a great place for events such as parties, teas, cookouts, reunions or weddings. For an additional fee, you may have your party at the FBI. (Please note that events must be approved and scheduled in advance.)
