Best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at!!!

5 on August 31, 2014

I rarely write reviews but in this case I would be remiss, this place this a complete GEM!!! We stayed here in May of 2014 and we're completely floored. Pictures do not do this place justice. It is literally right off the main square for shopping and dining. The gardens were beautiful. We were able to park directly in the driveway so parking was not an issue for us at all. The bedding was divine not gross or pilly. They had flat screen TVs in all the rooms and the little sitting area/reading nook off the second floor. The stair case was amazing, so much character, this place looked to transport you back in time, yet all the bathrooms were completely updated with marble. I would be remiss not to mention Bud. He is the owner and checks you in. Our flight was delayed and we didn't get in until after 10. Bud still met us there walked the house with us and even offered to walk the main square to show us around. He sent follow up emails before we arrived, gave us his cell phone, and could not have possibly showed us any more southern charm. He was lovely to deal with and was very available should we have had a need. We will definitely be back and looking to rent out the whole house for a girls trip. I just can't believe what a beautiful place this is, the location on the main square, and how inexpensive it was.

We'll be Back!

Great place. Celebrated 27 year anniversary with a last-minute trip to downtown Franklin. Bud was helpful and the room was very nice. Also, the covered courtyard is nice, even with late-summer rain. There was a wedding that weekend in the house but it did not interfere with our experience...just added a little extra charm. Parking was the only difficulty, but, then again, it is downtown Franklin and the parking garage is just around the corner.

Great location and great rooms!

Stayed one night at The Inn at Franklin Square. The owner met us when we arrived and took us on a tour of the entire house. We had the place to ourselves that evening - it was delightful. Breakfast was in the form of a credit at a local restaurant - Puckett's - and it was very good. I'd recommend this to anyone traveling through the Franklin area. In the heart of downtown and a five minute walk gets you everywhere you'd want to visit while you're there.

Beautiful, private, and relaxing!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was beyond perfect. The decor throughout the main house was flawless, it was absolutely stunning. We stayed in the king suite which was seperate from the main house and it was a great option for us as honeymooners. We had our own entrance and we felt like we had a lot more privacy. Plus right outside of our room was a nice area to sit and drink some champagne in the evening. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. We definitely plan on returning on one of our anniversaries down the road!

Excellent Evening and Breakfast!

We celebrated our anniversary with a night here. The Inn was the perfect place for us to get away and relax. The breakfast was excellent. My wife said as we headed home, we should stay there again.

Girls Weekend Getaway

5 on April 17, 2014

My High School Girlfriends recently got together for a weekend and chose The Inn at Franklin and were thrilled. Tons of space in each room, each beautifully decorated and CLEAN! Bud and Barbara were charming and made our stay a wonderful memory for us. Barbara's breakfast was wonderful. Staying here is just a great way to unwind and the location is perfect as we were able to walk, shop and eat with ease. We all said we would definitely put this on our list of places to return. You can't go wrong here!

Victorian Charm in Franklin

5 on March 21, 2014

Our stay at The Inn at Franklin Square was absolutely delightful. The Inn was filled with charm. The rooms were immaculate and clean; the mattresses were extremely comfortable. The location was a block from the delightful town of Franklin, Tennessee, where there is so much to see and do. The innkeepers Bud and Barbara were hospitable and attentive, yet not intrusive. The breakfasts were superb and different every morning. We will return.

Innkeeper Response
Every Inn has its strong points. Every Inn has its weak points. We are always happy when a guest emphasizes our strong points. We love being "downtown". We love Franklin. Whether its a special occasion or a business trip, it is so much fun to interact with our guests. Work at not being intrusive, but sometimes we get a special request and when we can, we always try to meet the need. Sunday, we will "split the group" and Barbara will drive half through the countryside and I get the others for a tour which will "knock their socks off". It is so much fun to see others enjoying beautiful Franklin and Williamson County, as do we!
