Franklin Battlefield Inn
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.
We can accomodate Business Travellers, Families, Families with Pets, Wedding Parties, Girls Weekends, Business Meetings and Gatherings and More! Contact us today to ask us how we can make your stay in Franklin, TN comfortable and enjoyable.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
This property has been passed down from one generation to the next. Sam Redford built this home and others in Franklin between 1899 and 1902 having purchased the land from what had been part of the Carter plantation. This home holds great sentimental value for the Redford family, so much so that when the 5th generation, Emily Redford, moved out, we decided to restore it, preserve it, keep it in the family for future generations and share it with others. Today we are offering our family home for travelers seeking comfort, luxury and ambiance in their travel accommodations.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying at the Franklin Battlefield Inn is a step back into time, a slower, gentler time of charm and grace. Built only 38 years after the Civil War, this property was on the battlefield. History abounds. Visit the Historic Carter House and Carnton Mansion. Perhaps a ghost tour would appeal to you. The back deck and back yard with a fire pit offer visitors the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy their time together. We think you will feel the love that has gone into restoring the old and creating the new aspects of this home. It is not a Victorian Museum, but rather a charming and comfortable place to make new memories.
